Nifty features

I've managed to do two new nifty things on the site. The first is in the most visited section, games. Now for flash games there is a slider that lets you adjust the size of the game on the fly. This idea had been trickling through the back of my head for a long time and I'm happy to finally see it realized. I ended up writing my own JavaScript slider control for it. There are a few out there, but they all seemed to be 30-40kb, whereas mine is under 3kb of js and a dash of CSS and HTML. I'm going to write up an article about that one real soon.

I've also done another more minor change which you can see at /ee. I spied another website out there doing this, and once I found out you could have mod_autoindex output HTML tables, I had to wrap them in a style sheet!

You may use Markdown syntax in the comment, but no HTML. Hints:

  • An empty line between text will create a paragraph boundary.
  • Use angle braces around a plain URL to auto-link it: <http://www.example.com/>.
  • Use this format to create a link with different text showing: [An Example](http://www.example.com/).
  • Use backticks (``), not leading spaces to enclose a code block.
