Logging to Firebug From XUL

Published on January 23, 2013

The Firebug extension is a very helpful tool for web development. But did you know that you can use its console as an output target for your Firefox extensions? It’s pretty simple to do:

Firebug.Console.log("Text to log"); // Output text
Firebug.Console.log(myObj); // Output an object

Is that easy or what? Having this capability is a great way to print out JavaScript objects from your Firefox extensions, making your debugging life much easier.

Jones Lake State Park

Published on January 22, 2013

I have just posted an album showcasing some of the sites of Jones Lake State Park. Like Singletary Lake state park, Jones Lake is located near Elizabethtown, NC. The park offers some nice hiking opportunities, and is quite scenic.

Photo Album Software Update

Published on January 21, 2013

I’ve rolled out some improvements to the software powering my photos website. Visitors can now navigate through all of my favorite photos without having to use the back button in the browser (favorites are essentially their own album now). I’ve been wanting to fix this problem for some time, and it feels good to finally get it resolved!

I also stamped out a few bugs that crept in when I last updated the site. If you spot any problems with the photos site, or have suggestions for improvement, I’m all ears!

Singletary Lake State Park

Published on January 18, 2013

I’ve just posted some photos from Singletary Lake State Park, located near Elizabethtown, NC. This was a great park, but it’s typically only open to groups for camping trips. The ranger there was kind enough to let us hike the nature trail, so I was able to get a view of yet another of our state’s wonderful parks!

New DreamHost Discount

Published on January 9, 2013

Seeing as it’s been a very long time since I’ve done anything with it, I’ve decided to create a new DreamHost discount here at Born Geek. You can now save $75.00 by using the promo code borngeek3 when you sign up as a new DreamHost customer! Is that easy to do, or what?

By signing up through Born Geek, you’re helping to support the hosting cost of this website. That’s right: 100% of the remaining portion of the rewards money I get for new customer referrals goes straight to keeping Born Geek on the air. A big thank you to everyone who has supported this website in the past!
