For the Prototype fans:

Array.prototype.indexOf = function(o)
    for (var i = 0; i < this.length; i++)
        if ( typeof o == 'function' )
            if ( o(this[i],i) )
                return i;	
        } else if ( typeof o == 'object' && typeof
== 'object' ) {
            var k = $A($H(o).keys());
            var total = k.inject(0,function(sum,p)
                if ( this[p] == o[p] )
		    return sum + 1;
                } else {
                    return sum;	

if (total == k.length) { return i; } } else { if (this[i] == o) { return i; } } } return -1; };

var aList = $A( [ 1, 'a', { 'year':2006, 'make':'Porsche', 'model':'Cayman S' } ]);

alert(aList.indexOf(1)); alert(aList.indexOf({'year':2006})); alert(aList.indexOf(function(o,i) { return ( o == 'a' ); }));

Alert(ed) results: 0,2,1

You get the idea

New search module

I replaced the Rollyo search box with one provided by technorati. Unfortunately, it only searches blogposts and not ReBlogs. I presume because in the RSS feed, ReBlogs don't link to youxylo.com, but instead they are linked to their original source. This works out fine if I want to provide a blog post-only search box, but not so much if you want to search the site for something that was ReBlogged. Providing the ability to search ReBlogs will either require a change to the way ReBlogs are represented in the feed (like by implementing some kind of redirect from youxylo.com based on a link id) or by providing a separate search box altogether.

Because it's become a meme

I prefer recursion. On another note, symbolic systems seems like a good explanation for my academic track. I think I'll use it.

UMPCs Hacked to Run Mac OS X

I never really "got" the idea of a tablet PC. But I'm thinking maybe until now it's because they all ran windows.

Package Source Code inside Mac OS X Applications

AppDNA is a small XCode shell script which efficiently packages a Mac OS X Application's source code into the application itself. The resulting embedded project directory is fully functional, allowing the code and resources to be examined, modified and re-built. The application is self-compiling when a Release build is performed.
