Scripts & Things

I think I will use this area to list scripts and things that I don't really want as deviations, since they're not really great works of art, just small things that do simple things.





:bulletblue: Move Complaints - Haha sorry, but this is just too stupid and simple to be a deviation. All this does, now, is move the complaints forum up to the top of the forum list for community. Here's the script, works in Firefox and Chrome.


:bulletgreen: Better forum styling - this makes the forums a tad better, well in my opinion anyway. Makes some links normally dark green, blue on hover, and lightens visited links (handy for knowing what you've read before) and it also tightens things up, kills that status forum box, and styles the forum search to look right. Get it here, and install into a new blank Stylish skin.


:bulletblue: Forum - Mark recent - this is based on an old script (nekodramon.deviantart.com/art/… and it will show the order of comments on a thread, and even let you jump to the latest 5 replies (per page, not per thread) if you hover over the far right of the page. Get it here. Works in Firefox (with Greasemonkey) and Chrome.


:bulletblue: Points Converter -This just puts a converter into your shop menu, and lets you input a points number, or US dollar amount, and it will convert the number into the other "currency" for you. Just note, the shop menu will stay open if you have anything inputted in the boxes. Remove any numbers and mouseout of the menu to make it close back up. Install here, works in Firefox (with Greasemonkey) and Chrome.


:bulletblue: Normal Deviation Clicks -This keeps dA from loading the "faster" AJAX links, things like http://whatever.deviantart.com/#/d39bm0o, and instead loads the more normal link. What you see when you click fav.me links. This solves a bunch of bugs that happen because of the superbrowse way of loading deviations, and I just personally find it a much better way to load deviations. Install it here, works in Firefox (with Greasemonkey) and Chrome.


:bulletblue: dA Journal - Saved Text - This saves your text from journal to journal so you don't have to copy/paste tags in. It works on your create new journal page, and it will save your text once you hit Publish Entry, or the Update Saved Text button on the bottom right. Works with Firefox (with Greasemonkey) and Chrome, install from here.


:bulletpurple: Ignore people in chat rooms without SuperdAmn - this is something that may be useful if you ever don't have SuperdAmn, and just must ignore people. Just open this page and then copy the text in that gray box and bookmark it (or just paste it into the URL of your chat page and hit enter) and when you're on the chats, you can click that bookmarklet to ignore people. Just remember, capitalization is important, and to ignore more than one person, simply put a comma (,) in between the names, with no spaces.


:bulletblue: deviation Background Color - This lets you color the background of deviations pages, which may be useful or preferable to you. You can even save that color so all deviation pages will have your set background color. But, it will only work on http://username.deviantart.com/art/deviationtitle-id pages, not the AJAX #dabc123 type URL's. You can click the title of the deviation to get to the normal URL, or install my script that does this for you above. Install it here, works in Firefox (with Greasemonkey) and Chrome.


:bulletpurple: Bookmarklet for easy dA embeds - This will let you easily turn videos into the proper dA embed code. Copy the text here and then bookmark it, then click it and paste in your video URL.


:bulletblue: Forum Preview - This lets you preview forum threads. Hover over the eyes to the right of threads to see what the original post is. Get it here sta.sh/01jxo98q7qjh works in Firefox (with Greasemonkey) and Chrome.

Updates and Shit

I've been rather quiet on deviantART lately.  Aside from some casual forum replies and group management stuff, I've been pretty low key.  So, updates: I've been seeing a lot of doctors, mostly of the psychological kind, and also getting all my shit together so Blue Cross insurance is all happy and settled with it all… kind of a pain, but meh, that's how shit goes.  I've also been talking with head doctors about my general depressed me state, which is the only state I really know, and that's been somewhat helpful, actually.  Also talking about my drinking, which tends to be a problem, at times.  So, lots of medical shit, but I'm pretty healthy, aside from all the head/mood shit :lol:  I don't really think that can be fixed, easily, but I'm trying.

But then I've been watching a lot of diabetes videos on youtube.  Sort of the my diabetes story or just people, with diabetes, talking casually about it.  Then I go to a monthly diabetes support group, and aside from that terrible name (I prefer D-Meetup), it's been pretty cool.  Just being around people with a condition you also have.

But I've been thinking about this for a while now, and why the fuck is diabetes so—well—laughed at?  I mean, yeah there's the DIABEETUS thing, and I think (correct me if I'm wrong, please) that people generally hear diabetes and think the person is a fat slob that deserves it.  Then there's the fact that there's two types of diabetes, and I think most people "laugh" at the type 2 diabetics, which yes, is sometimes brought on by exercise and what you eat and how you live your life.  But I'm the other type, the type that's either brought on by heredity or just a fluke of the body when it randomly decides to attack your pancreas.  It's the only medical condition that I can think of that is not really taken seriously.  Or at least, has a reputation.  A sort of "Yeah, that's serious, but I'm still having cynical thoughts in the back of my mind" kind of thing.  You hear cancer, Parkinson's disease, Epilepsy, HIV, and even this new social thing with the ALS ice bucket challenge, and you just think "Man, that sucks.  What can I do?"  But diabetes, and you almost snicker first, then maybe have those thoughts like other conditions.

Or is this just me?
 I'm just thinking that diabetes is laughed at first, then sometimes thought about more seriously.  Is this just me?  I don't really know, since my brain works in strange ways sometimes, and having diabetes, I look at it from a very different perspective.  Anyone care to share some thoughts? :)  

(My last A1C was 6.8, which is pretty good ;)  Non-diabetics are usually in the 5 range, but diabetics in the 6 range is pretty good.  The lower the better.)


Diabetes...
Some thoughts about diabetes, and people's perspective on it.

Site Change

I first wanted to write about some site changes, with my electricjonny.com site.  It's no longer available, since I don't have the money to get the DNS listing renewed.  So in light of that, I've repurposed my Raspberry Pi to be a server and I've coppied all of my old electricjonny.com folders and files to my Pi.  This means that any electricjonny.com domain is now a 99.82.246.199 domain.  So going to 99.82.246.199 will result in an error since I have some code to redirect that site to portfolio.electricjonny.com, which is the deviantART portfolio platform.  I just haven't done the work to use one of their domains and remove the CNAME or whatever it is on my old domain.  Well shit, I just checked, and it appears that my hosting provider (doteasy) added some code to change my main domain… Those fuckers :B Anywho, that's not important.

Anyway, what this means for anyone browsing my page or gallery submissions, is that if you ever come across a link that is electricjonny.com, you should just change the electricjonny.com part with 99.82.246.199 in order to gain access to my script or whatever.  I've started changing that domain in my submissions, but not all scripts and things are updated.  And, since I have regular old cheapo internet, my IP address could change at any random point, which means I'll have to edit things again.  I'll try to update things when that happens, but if you run into a 404 error page, just shoot me a comment and I can give you a link that works.  I would just upload my scripts to dA's servers, but since dA strips out the .user.js and just uses .js, it isn't as handy to install scripts.

Anywho, I know that this is all sort of random and geeky, and may not interest anyone, but since I had been using my old electricjonny.com domain for a lot of things, I thought I should mention this new development for anyone running into problems trying to load certain pages.  But shoot me a comment and I'll get things delivered :)


A Fast Way To Edit/Save Images?

So I've had a page saved locally on my computer that lets me paste in any image, then allows me to crop and draw on it.  I made it simply because copying an image, or using the PrtScn button on my keyboard forced me to open an image editing program in order to edit or save it.  So with this page, I simply paste an image in, and it lets me crop and draw (if I want) and then save it.  Just a handy time saver.  Anyway, I've recoded the page and I think it works much nicer now.  I also added the ability to use your webcam, in order to "take a picture" of your face, or anything else you point it at.  You can find this page over here, 99.82.246.199/html/prtscn_edit… And I want to ask people to give me feedback.  Let me know how it works, if you find any bugs, if you want more features (I know I could add things to the drawing tool), and things.  I find it works best in Firefox (my browser of choice), but I think it works in Chrome too.  I've seen a few errors when trying to paste certain images in Chrome, due to some security policies and whatnot.  But like I said, I use Firefox, and it seems to work pretty well there.  Also, this will let you paste anything into the page, and it will find the first image and then use that.  If it doesn't detect an image, it will say so and reload to let you try again.  This is a single .html file, and all the code and things required for it to use are incorporated into that file.  Meaning, you can just download that single file, and it should work.  It's not asking for remote files from any other site.  So, if people could try it out and give me some advice, I'd appreciate it :)


Updates and Other Stuff
Just a wording on my site, electricjonny.com, and wanting advice on a page I wrote.

◄ The deviantART electricjonny ►
I spend most of my time on the forums and chat rooms. I love hitting the forums and having fun there, I usually hang out in the Suggestions forum and Software forum.


You can also find me in the #h3lp and #seniors chat room.

◄ The real life electricjonny ►
My real name is Jon Spence. I'm a 30 year old student studying Television and Digital Media Production. So I know a lot about video and things like that. I started studying photography in high school, and have loved it ever since. I mainly shoot with a Canon PowerShot SX100 IS. My hobbies include taking things apart and experimenting with electronic things, and biking. I like the outdoors and I used to camp a lot.

So art wise, I'm mainly a photographer, but I like to do video compositing too.
