I updated Tom 7 Radar (you're lookin' at it!) with some requested features and features that I had been meaning to add. I also made my first ever pop-up (click "ways to read" above)! Using Javascript and CSS is a lot more pleasant than it once was. Aren't you mildly pleased/disappointed that I didn't stick with this awesome design mistake?

Every time I make a minor change to one of my old web apps it means porting the code from Aphasia 1 to Aphasia 2—so it takes way longer than it otherwise would. (And sometimes that means adding some new feature or optimization to Aphasia 2, so it could be a whole weekend project just to add some little button somewhere...) But there's pretty much nothing I like better on New Year's eve than mindless porting jobs, at least if the destination language is my own lovely creation.

Neato. I think it would be intuitive if clicking again also closed the pop-up, but maybe that won't scale to other uses.

You're right, but once I got it working I was like 'sweet!' and left all icing for 2006.

Well I'm not going to stop clicking it until it goes away.

It's 2006, so you can click an even number of times and then stop clicking!

I'm typing this from my laptop because I'm still on my desktop clicking and it won't go away.
