How to use css to improve your reading experience on sites using gravatar:

The easy way:
Create a file with the extension "css"
Go to Preferences > Advanced
Go to "Style Sheet", choose the file.

The downside of this method is that it only applies the file when it's first selected or you restart Safari. If you add more trolls, you'll have to force a reload by switching the Style Sheet to "None Selected" and back to your original file. This causes it to reload all your pages twice.


The flexible way:

First, go to Preferences > Advanced, check "Show Develop menu in menu bar"
(This also lets you change the user agent to "iPad" when you've got a site that insists on using Flash when it's got a perfectly valid fallback)

Follow the instructions here, with one change - the original step 2 is:


2. Drag your style sheet into the extension folder.


Instead, create a new plain text file and save it in the folder created by step 1. If you're using TextEdit, make sure to do Format > Make Plain Text - curly quotes are a bad thing.

Choose the site this applies to using the instructions here.

Unlike the Style Sheet you can set in Advanced prefs, you can choose which site this applies to and have different extensions for different sites. When you've updated it, just reload it in Extensions Builder; it'll only reload the sites you've chosen.

This is the File770 troll-blocking script created by Aan. To plonk more trolls, add a new line, then go back to the Extension Builder and reload the extension. The opacity here is 0.6, which leaves the troll readable but easily skipped; set it to 0.99 to make them disappear entirely.

The "Reader" button in Safari is to ordinary webpages as "style=mine" is to DW/LJ - assuming your style is pretty sparse, like mine is.

I'd clicked it on occasion when reading long fics on LJ or Ao3 and didn't see the point of it, but try it out on some site with annoying clutter or obnoxious animated text-obscuring elements, and it's really nice. Beats turning off Javascript :)

Wikiwandering off the Uncanny Valley article to a Polar Express review, because it's always fun to see people hate on that zombie horror-show:

Nor will they care that to make "Polar Express" Tom Hanks wore a little cap that transmitted a record of his movements to a computer...


*blink*

Oh. "mo-cap". Riiiight.
Mood:: 'amused' amused

Title: Tony Stark and the Heterodyne Legacy
Agatha never went to Mechanicsburg, and Tony Stark is a Spark.

Loosely inspired by Euphrosynia's Jäger by khilari - what if the Super Soldier serum was the Jägerbräu?

Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Maxim; a hint of Tony/Steve.

Title: Target Acquisition
Tony Stark, Clint Barton, Nick Fury
Also on AO3

Clint Barton took the helicarrier down in a matter of seconds. Tony Stark wants to help him figure out what else Loki left behind. But first Fury needs them to deal with the other aftereffects of that attack, including the WSC's stupid-ass decisions.

(and yes, it's a fix-it)
Nick Fury doesn't believe in interim reports. They tend to lead to stupid-ass decisions. )

Tony Stark took hours to hack the helicarrier; Barton's hacker arrow took it down in a matter of seconds. SHIELD isn't stupid, they'd have locked down his access before the crater finished collapsing. So how did they get taken down by their own tech?

Title: Internal Target
Tony Stark, Clint Barton
References to canon events for Iron Man and The Avengers movies (nothing explicit).

"No, no, never send interim reports," said Miles. "Only final ones. Interim reports tend to elicit orders. Which you must then either obey, or spend valuable time and energy evading, which you could be using to solve the problem."
