Here, for your amusement/enjoyment/derision, is my log of the more noteworthy things I accomplished this week.

That’s a lot of miscellaneous stuff written up this week! On top of that, we rolled out the next phase of the big MDN upgrade this week (which admittedly I personally had very little to do with, other than some very minor fixes to the skin for the documentation wiki pages).

There are plenty of big things left to document, but even more little ones. My tentative plan for next week is to start by working on the new audio API documentation now that that’s landed.

  1. Great! I’ve already got some useful knowledge from these improvements :)

  2. Good stuff, thanks.

    How do I type :[smiley face]ptional on my keyboard? :ohno
    Selective disabling of smileys in WordPress is hard, maybe a Unicode zero-width non-joiner space in the middle? No WordPress preview, trying it here two‌words and here :‌optional

    BTW, if I log in securely to , after Firefox’s cert warning I’m at the Syndicomm™ online store with the Apple IIgs Telecom Starter Kit. Yeah!

  3. I turned off smilies. Didn’t even see that when I read the article through. Weird.

  4. There seem to be a couple of errors in :

    /content/body/div[3]/pre[1]/@function, reference to undefined name ‘syntax’: line 1, column 1 (click for details)

    MindTouch.Deki.Script.DekiScriptUndefinedNameException: reference to undefined name ‘syntax’: line 1, column 1

  5. I’ve also used entities in the past to break auto-smileys in WordPress, for what it’s worth.

  6. Those errors are wiki server errors that crop up now and then. I will look into them.
