Couple of Twitter Notes

Yesterday an acquaintance began following me on Twitter, and I found that they were using Twitter Job Search. It’s in beta, and I wish I had time to contribute as it looks promising.

It appears that some companies are following people as a marketing approach, which is the only reason I can think of for an eBusiness-in-a-box company to start following me that had no job postings. Their Twitter page did remind me that I wanted to customize my Twitter page as I have noticed some folks have done, and I found this handy blog post on how to.

Delicious Deviation

If you are like me (and I am realistic to know that the odds are really against that), you could care less about visitors to your blog that have Javascript disabled.  There is really just no reason for it, with 99.99% of browsers supporting it.  So, if you want to save a few bytes and just have a clickable icon for your Delicious tag, here is my version:

<img      id=”DeliciousIcon1″  title=”Bookmark this on Delicious”
height=”10″ width=”10″ alt=”Bookmark this on Delicious”
style=”cursor: pointer; vertical-align: middle”
onclick=”‘;noui&amp;jump=close&amp;url=’+encodeURIComponent(‘<?php the_permalink() ?>’)+’&amp;title=’+encodeURIComponent(‘<?php the_title() ?>’),’delicious’, ‘toolbar=no,width=550,height=550’); return false;” />
