Yahoo purple bar

I get that Yahoo needs to push their services, so we get a purple navigation bar on all flickr pages.

Google do it, but their services are free and it’s the “price” you pay for using free services. I pay for flickr, and have no real interest in Yahoo’s other offerings – not that I’m judging: if they are good I’ll find them without that purple bar. The duplication of navigation on flickr is annoying and a bit of a UI fail.


Wish Yahoo have used the current flickr navigation bar and added a less intrusive “More” dropdown item.


So I reluctantly installed the “Stylish” extension and use Tristan Savatier’s CSS style to remove the purple bar.

AC/DC albums

Nothing better to do a few summers back than listen to every AC/DC album and give each song a score out of 6. Finally threw them together with some jQuery and CSS.

My favourite album? Powerage by far (Keith Richards’ as well, apparently) as it has Riff Raff and Gone Shootin’, two of my favourite tracks.
