«Search and Page Edit»

I've added a search box at the top of the sidebar. I'm using the Google Custom Search feature. I can include whatever sites I want, or the entire web. I chose to make it search only my site. I figured you can go to Google if you want to search the entire web. Before, if you wanted to search just my site, you'd have to type in the following along with your query in Google.

site: OR site:

Now, you can just type your query directly into the search box in the sidebar. If you think I should change it to search the entire web, feel free to say so in the comments.

On a different note, here's a nifty little thing I ran across, copy the code below.

javascript:document.body.contentEditable='true'; document.designMode='on'; void 0

Now paste it into the address bar and hit enter. Looks like nothing happened? (Well, ok, the colors of links will change to your browser's default color, in most cases blue.) Try to edit the text anywhere on the page like you would in a word processor. Pretty cool, eh? You can do this on any web page. The site I found it on said it's been tested to work in Firefox and Internet Explorer. So if you are not using one of those it may or may not work for you.

Of course, you're not actually editing the page. You're not going to be able re-write my blog and expect others to see your version; unless you take a screenshot that is. All you're doing is editing the text in your browser's memory. When you refresh the page it will restore the original text. I had better not see any Master Barf screenshots now...

This just goes to show that you can't trust screenshots; even if they haven't been edited in Photoshop.


  1. That's trippy.

    This will be fun!

    Should I keep it to myself or do you want to see?

  2. Sure, I wouldn't mind seeing. Do your worst...

  3. L- My worst. Sure you can handle it?

  4. Well I can handle 4chan. I'm sure you're no worse than that.

  5. :) I'm way too easily amused... thanks for giving me another way to waste time on my computer... lol very cool.


Thanks for taking the time to comment.
