Super Happy Color CodingPast Fun Hour

A NOTE TO NEW READERS ABOUT THE CURRENT DORKTOWER.COM ARCHIVES:

I hate those click-thru full-page ads more than you can possibly know. Read all about it here: http://www.dorktower.com/2011/11/22/muskrat-ramblings-november-22-2011/

Also: the archives are broken. VERY broken. We’re working on it. In the meantime, I hope this helps out at least a little:

The entire archives, with links, earliest to latest – https://serialist.net/archive/1159

The first strip itself can be found here: http://www.dorktower.com/2001/01/01/comics-archive-1/

Changes coming as soon as possible. Honest.

Super Happy Robot YouTube Fun Hour

************************

OK…this is kinda incredible.

An hour after this posted, Swedish DORK TOWER reader Martijn van der Ven sent me a way you can actually DO this, with an example! (I’m guessing he used the the Firefox add-on Stylish).

Hi John!

I just saw your latest Dork Tower update and I loved it.

So I decided to see how it works out in practice.

You will see the comments to a random Munchkin video clip, then, “I’m a fraking moron” appended to them.

You will also see how I did it.

From now on, all the YouTube comments I will ever see will have this sentence appended to them automatically! It really makes YouTube understandable. Thanks for the tip! 😉

Kind Regards,

Martijn van der Ven

And here’s the Stylish code, or script, or whatever the kidz are calling it these days:

Frakking Script

BUT THERE’S MORE! London reader Richard George has a Greasemonkey script for this. It can be found here.

var comments;
var thisComment;

comments=document.evaluate(“//div[@class=’comment-text’]”,document,null,XPathResult.UNORDERED_NODE_SNAPSHOT_TYPE, null);
if(comments) {
for (var i = 0; i < comments.snapshotLength; i++) {
thisComment= comments.snapshotItem(i);
comments.snapshotItem(i).innerHTML=thisComment.innerHTML+'

But then, I\’m a frakking moron.’; //break;

HOLY CATS, I love my readers. Seriously. You guys ROCK!
