Library shortcuts

Matt Price e-mailed me about this wonderful piece of wizardry he added to YubNub (which is kinda like a command line for the Web). He set up the tpl command, which searches the Toronto Public Library. This prompted me to finally make YubNub the default handler for my Mozilla Firefox address bar, which you can also do by going to about:config and setting or creating the keyword.URL option to http://yubnub.org/parser/parse?command=

This is good stuff, and one of the many reasons why blogging saves me time and lets me hear about all sorts of interesting things. =) Matt, thanks for sharing!

Taming the Firefox keyboard with keyconfig

In my Mozilla Firefox, iMacros and ScribeFire were fighting over the F8 keyboard shortcut, and it was driving me crazy. I liked both extensions, but I wanted to remap them to different shortcut keys. The Keyconfig extension lets me do just that. Hooray, hooray, hooray!

Bookmarklet for the Toronto Public Library

Thanks to Simon Ditner for this totally cool bookmarklet!

Did Dan mention the bookmarklet creator compatible with the TPL? This will suck up ISBN numbers on a page (i.e. Amazon), and search the TPL catalog:
