When you need jQuery (or Bootstrap), but fast!

February 24th, 2012 No comments

I sometimes need to test some jQuery locally and I’m never organised enough to have a template ready. The latest version from a CDN is all I need and googling for the URL or searching my bookmarks will take longer than the solution I came up with today.

Before:

<script src=”http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.min.js”
type=”text/javascript”></script>

After:

<script src=”http://is.gd/jQuery” type=”text/javascript”></script>

I’m hoping that if I use it enough times, I’ll remember it! If you use this tip, make sure you don’t copy paste this onto your production systems. You could do without the one extra request to is.gd

Edit: I’ve added a URL for Bootstrap, from Twitter. It is:
Before:

<link href="http://twitter.github.com/bootstrap/assets/css/bootstrap.css"
rel="stylesheet" />

After:

<link href="http://is.gd/Bootstrap" rel="stylesheet" />

Fedora GNOME 3 show desktop keyboard shortcut.

June 26th, 2011 13 comments

The Ctrl-Alt-D keyboard shortcut to show the desktop no longer works by default in Fedora 15’s GNOME shell. This can be very frustrating if you have many windows open and need to get to the desktop quickly.

Let’s fix it. Click your username in the top right of the screen and select System Settings.

Gnome3 -> System Settings

Under  Hardware click Keyboard.

Gnome3 -> System Settings

Switch to the Shortcuts tab, and click Navigation in the left column. Scroll down and select Hide all normal windows which has a default value of Disabled.

Gnome 3 -> Keyboard Shortcuts -> Navigation

Set the shortcut to whatever you want.
