my first user script
Feb 17, 2005, 11:32pm EST
My first (real) greasemonkey user script is for adding user pics to livejournal user links. That is, if you hover over a livejournal user link (like this one: idealisms), the user’s userpic appear above your cursor.
Futhermore, the script use XMLHttpRequests and doesn’t require user intervention because all the requests are made to livejournal.com.
I had actually done something similar in my livejournal S2 style, but I gave up when I realized that there was no way to get userpic urls for most user links in S2. I was reminded of the idea today when I read about a related PHP script.
Hmm, it’s unclear to me whether I should have posted this here on my tech blog or on my more personal livejournal.
