So, I may not have mentioned, but my new addiction is GTA San Andreas - it's sucking me in, slowly but surely. One of the problems I have is tracking all the little secrets on the map. I've found an excellent page that shows all the things I have to target, and gives helpful little descriptions of where to find them. BUT, I can't figure out a decent way to track 'em. So, a wrote a handy little bookmarklet to handle it.
For those of you who don't grok this, the explanation is under the cut:
Now, I feel I have the skills to write my own, so I did. It feels kind of empowering, having the ability to casually solve a problem. AND it's a hell of a lot simpler than what I do in work.
In case, you're interested, I wrote it to work with this site. The tool I wrote is Taggler (and I just realised that livejournal will probably scrape all of this out - as well it should) - just drag it up to the toolbar, go to the site, and enter numbers from 1 to 100, and they'll disappear, and reappear when you put the number in again. You can put in multiple numbers, separated by commas (I don't do ranges by -, although I may try it some time), and is a tool I'm quite happy to have in my arsenal.
It's quite a weird sensation to be proud of doing something that I'd normally do in work, outside of work. At any rate, if anyone wants to play and/or log bugs, do let me know.
