Gumming up the Plumbing

In honor of our kids dressing up as Mario and Luigi this Halloween, we decided to add a new code snippet to the toys page.

In this case, the new bundle of joy is called pipeCleaner, and we're using it on the upcoming tiny site to separate some HTML list items with pipe ("|") characters. The same code could be modified to add pretty much anything to any place. Please give it a whirl and let us know how it goes.

Island of Misfit Code

We've just added a toys page to the site, and the plan is to use it to park little widgets and code snippets that we made to get ourselves out of a jam. You're welcome to whatever hunks of mojo you can use.

Right now the only piece of code on the page is a little JavaScript hunk of func that grabs all the form elements on a page and generates SQL to match. We used it to populate a database based on an HTML mockup we'd put together. I wish we'd thought of this before.
