Kaboom!

After a brief conversation with a colleague I decided to write a little bookmarklet that you can use to make your days just a bit more fun.

Everyone knows that when Batman hits someone there’s a big Kaboom! or Kapow!

If you drag this Kaboom! link to your bookmarks toolbar and press it on any page you will be able to Batman punch things at the click of a button.

Batman punching some poor guy.

The bookmarklet is a little bit of Javascript that generates a random selection of stars using the canvas tag introduced in HTML5. That means it might not work on rubbish old browsers, but should work just fine if you’re living in the second decade of the 21st century.

Cash Gordon sucks

Just been looking at the Cash Gordon website and decided it’s not very good. Thought I’d share that with you all. 🙂

I just thought I’d take a second to explain this post… The Conservative Party put up a website that I’m not going to bother linking to that had a Twitter stream of all posts with a certain hashtag. They had no filtering of content, and no sanitising either. All HTML and Javascript got rendered directly on their page.

Cue carnage. People posted massive pictures, huge text, and a few people (myself included) posted Javascript redicrects to various other sites around the Internet.

The site appears to be down now. Whether that’s on purpose by the sysadmin team in the data centre, or because of a DDoS I don’t know. I guess it won’t be coming back up in its original form though. 🙂
