APPROPRIATE ICON IS APPROPRIATE
THINGS THAT WILL BE HILARIOUS WHEN THEY FIGURE OUT WHAT IT MEANS
The Pinboard twitter posted this morning:
Really enjoying the HN vs. fanfic collision on the /popular/ page. Enjoy this, founders, it's as close to real women as some of you will get
And I did take a look and chorttle a moment (despite also being mildly annoyed). And then I realized that their 'most popular bookmark? Has *147* bookmarks. Most of them only have 20-40. If fandom does complete the migration there, SOME PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE VERY SURPRISED BY WHAT THEIR POPULAR LINKS PAGE WILL TURN INTO. Like, popular stories can have 20 bookmarks EASILY. And I know the scale is going to be a bit reduced because not everyone can/will make the jump, but LULZ. They have no idea what is coming if fandom continues to heavily use their site.
The other thing that will be hilarious is when we convert old pinterest users to our fanish ways. >:D
THINGS I AM FIGURING OUT
If you don't have a Pinterest account and are disinclined to buy one, you can still access bookmarks from users and site-wide tags via RSS feeds. How to make that actually work, IDEK, but it is a thing that can happen. At the very least, if you use Google Reader, you should be able to pull things in. I've seen some comments about Google Reader not displaying tags, but I'm sure we can figure something out.
CONTINUED PROGRAMMING EDUCATION IS ... INTERESTING
Uh, so. Let's face it, I have no idea what I'm doing, but I got the Ruby Script to pull my bookmarks with the correct dates
to run without error messages, but, uh, nothing else happened? I think I'm missing a dependency of some sort, and it said something about getting the developer version of Ruby, not just the 'run stuff' version, so we'll see what's what later today I think.
MAKING OUR OWN
This is apparently still something rageprufrock
is trying to get off the ground
. Send her your email address if you're interested in helping out
! If you want to keep updated on the progress of said project, you can follow her twitter, and I assume she'll post about it on her journal.
FOR FOLKS USING PINBOARDHere
are some useful links. I don't really like what the 'cleanup' scripts do, but the favicon one is A++.
SOME PRETTY GREAT THINGS ABOUT USING NEW BROKEN DELICIOUS
So, (after clinking on the first thing they told me was a bookmarklet, only to have it send me elsewhere for a new bookmarklet) I bookmarked a new thing on delicious. And you want to hear the awesome part? THERE ARE NO SCROLL BARS ON THE POPUP WINDOW. NO. SCROLL. BARS. *dies laughing*
All that white space? DOESN'T REALLY WORK FOR THOSE OF US WHO ARE WORKING ON 12.1 INCH LAPTOP SCREENS. *dies forever of both hilarity and irritation*
Other than that, it... worked? I mean, there was no evidence of autocomplete, but I saved a bookmark? And I was prepared for the comma thing?
But really, my favorite feature is how when you stack two bookmarks you've made, you don't see the tags. That is a really A++GENIOUS idea right there.
AND THE CHERRY ON TOPThe First 20 Hours
according to dome dude who works there. I like how they are So! Positive! All! The! Time! they can't even be bothered to apologize to all the people they freaked out or acknowledge in some minor way that it was a complete disaster.
