Javascript type conversion  Tags: programming, webdevelopment.
I used to have a lot of problems with Javascript on this back when I was just starting to program and had no experience coding besides writing HTML. Nowadays I don't have any trouble with this anymore, especially since the discovery that you can see the errors, but only now I think I can guess right 100% of the time.

Let's do a show-by-example, but try to guess for before clicking the button!

Invalid JSON  Tags: webdevelopment, programming.
I've written about XML versus JSON before, praising JSON far above XML. I still stand by this, but I must say that there is an incredible lot of invalid JSON out there.

For example for my website playbylyrics.com I wanted to enable users to download the MP3 of what they were listening.
10 things Paul Irish learned from the jQuery source  Tags: webdevelopment, programming.
I got very annoyed by the arrogance of Mr. jQuery Board Member which some people seem to love... I thought I would get a great talk about 10 awesome things jQuery does that hardly anyone knows about. Instead this is an hour-long video full of 'stuff's and 'awesome's with like 0.1% content.

That's not the answer to the question, that's how you would do it given that you already use a library on your site and you don't really care about how it works. If the asker is not already using a library, it's
Py2exe simplifier  Tags: programming.
Just a quick post: It took me way too long to find out how I should convert .py files to executables with py2exe. I just want to give it an input file, and let it figure out the rest by itself. After I found out I thought, this should be easily automated. And so it was.

Prerequisites for this:
- Python installed (example directory is C:\>Python27)
- py2exe installed

Put the following script in your Python directory and name it py2exe.cmd
