I was initially really excited to read that Nokia has launched its music store in APAC. Wow, finally. Even though I haven’t used a Nokia phone in nearly 4 years, I was really pleased for the opportunity to buy music legally online. The S$2/track price tag was reasonable and I was ready to whip out my credit card… but this stopped me cold in my tracks.
Two words. Tech. Geek.
On a short holiday back home for the Lunar New Year, I decided to celebrate my temporary return to broadband by taking a stab at Zooomr‘s InfoTags / InfoWidgets (How big of a geek am I? I actually code for fun. Sigh.)
- Zooomr Enhanced Thread Paging – adds another row of paging links at the start of a thread [script link]
- Zooomr Buddy Icon Reply – adds a reply link to each comment which will generate the buddy icon code or bold username code in the add post textarea [script link]
- Zooomr Fanmail Compose Fix – fix for a Zooomr bug where the â€œToâ€ field doesnâ€™t get auto-populated properly [script link]
- Zooomr Zipline Sidebar Plus – adds a couple of extra links in the Zipline sidebar [script link]
I wanted to integrate Twitter tweets as Asides into another blog I was setting up. The excellent Twitter Tools from alexking.org did exactly what I wanted except that the posts created had comments and trackbacks (pings) open. There was no option to default the comments/trackback status.
I wanted comments and trackbacks for Asides to be closed for now, so a quick hack was in order. I suppose I could have added new options to make this configurable but I was too lazy. :p
