Just a few online tools I didn't have a better place for...source available upon request.
time toy
Calculate the time difference between two dates, or find the date that is N days (or hours or minutes etc) from a given start date, or just get a list of upcoming "superdays". (Here is my orginal version from 2001)
Makes a block of text "fix-width" in HTML by adjust the font size of each line.
A simplistic tool to help make CSS text-mask overlays.
youtube resizer
Modify youtube embed code to whatever width you want.
A trivial timer and notepad to help standup teams not get lost in he weeds.
Simple javascript to view a numbered series of online images on a single page.
A primitive grade-one braille translation tool, converting plain braille characters to text.
Simple tool that takes an annotated flickr page and turns the notes into an ordinary HTML imagemap.
Display all images (or any content) linked to from a given URL in one page.
tab2table / tabtransform
convert tab delimted data to an html table or do a general line template. (Useful for copying and pasting track listings from iTunes!)
Take text that has been "force wordwrapped" (usually for 80 colunns) and makes it ready for new word-wrapping, preserving paragraphs and what not.
sort of
A simple sorting tool, returns the lines you enter in alphabetically sorted order. I'll add in new features and options as they occur to me, requests welcome.
day of the week / multiyear edition
Show the day of the week for any given date.
*nix timestamp converter
(Scroll beaneath the cartoons.) Every once in a while I need a quick way to convert a "Unix Time Stamp" (seconds since Jan 1 1970) into something I can understand.
On a SQL logging tool I was using for work, I could see prepared statements and their parameters, but on separate lines. This brings them together!
Give a starting and stopping RGB hex code, and it will give you color steps in between.
Often time photo frames are different proportions and ratios then digitial photos. This lets you find out how to crop a photo so it fits another ratio.
Shows you where the differences start and end for two lines of text. Might be useful for comparing computer "PATH"s or other long lines.
Strips out empty lines from plain text. (The opposite of whitespace...har!)
The basic HTML-character escaping almost any web coder has written about 1,000 times...
Web interface to a very, very primitive "grep" like function.
Another great tool is this Dan Hersam's Smart Quotes Remover (not hosted here)
