Programming Hands

In 2010 I was less focussed on programming articles on the blog than previous years, still I have managed to create some interesting articles with code in 2010. This is an overview of the activity:

YouTube Channel Unsubscribe #bookmarklet

with 2 comments

I like , and often subscribe to new channels and unsubscribe after a while. There is a lot of good stuff on YouTube, and a lot of rubbish. YouTube has been smart in making it possible to easily add channels, and in my opinion they have put less thought into making it easy to leave the channels. In the case of multiple channels I would either need to go to each of the channels and remove them one by one, or I would go to My Feeds / My Subscriptions and remove them one by one from there. In both cases I need to modify the subscription settings shown below.

My issue with this is not that it takes a long time, although that is certainly a small factor. Or that having subscription management for a channel is overkill when I just want to leave a channel. Personally I believe that it should be manageable from one page, just push of a button, like subscribing. And it wasn’t, until today.

Bookmarklet Fix

leave a comment »

For whatever reason one of my FireFox bookmarklets to toggle checkboxes stopped working, so I wrote a new one. ( I can’t post it as a link as Yahoo! 360° doesn’t allow javascript links. )

javascript:(function(){ var i,t,x=document.getElementsByTagName("INPUT"); for( i=0; i < x.length; i++) {if(x[i].type == "checkbox") { t = x[i].onchange; x[i].onchange=null; x[i].checked=!x[i].checked; x[i].onchange=t;}}})();

You have to copy this code, all on one line and paste it into a new bookmark location field.
