Proof that anyone can nod their head to a Daft Punk song.
If you use my SyntaxHighlighter Evolved WordPress plugin, please update ASAP. There’s a security issue with the Flash file that is used by version 2 of the highlighting library. This file is meant to be used for allowing one-click copying of the code to your clipboard (since normal copy/paste doesn’t work with it) but the file reportedly suffers from a cross-site scripting security issue.
Even if you use the better version 3 of the library (the default for my plugin), the file from version 2 of the library will still be included in the plugin’s files.
As a temporary fix, I have emptied out the file. This unfortunately means your visitors will not easily be able to copy any code you paste. I recommend switching to the superior version 3 via my plugin’s settings page. Code highlighted using the newer version can be selected and copied normally.
Feel free to leave any questions you have about this security issue on this post but please leave other general SyntaxHighlighter comments on the plugin’s homepage. Thanks.
A single called “Get Lucky” off the upcoming Daft Punk album “Random Access Memories” came out earlier today and it is absolutely epic. We’ve been hearing samples of it over the past couple weeks/months but it’s great to finally here it in it’s complete form. I’m so pumped for the full album, due out May 21st!
The Russian indie band Biting Elbows apparently does the coolest music videos ever. These two are really worth watching, especially the second one. Very original.
Warning: if you’re easily offended by violence, these videos aren’t for you.
Earlier today I mounted my wheels back onto my Viper. As mentioned earlier, I had taken them off to paint them using some temporary paint to see if I liked the look or not.
Now that they are back on the car, I can without a doubt say that I do! I am so going to get them permanently powder coated.
Here’s the left side (left them polished, image mirrored) vs. the right side of my car (black). I only painted one side so I could get a better comparison. The final look will have the center caps polished instead of black (I forgot to mask them off) and it will be gloss black instead of the current matte look. This should result in a slightly brighter look. I might even add a body colored pinstripe around the outside of the wheel.
I took both right wheels off my car today. It was a lot harder than it sounds due to the super low clearance of the car — only about 5 inches between the ground and the frame! After a lot of work, it’s now sitting on wood blocks.
Tomorrow I’ll be using Plasti Dip temporary spray paint to paint the wheels as a mockup to see if I like the blacked out wheel look. I’m strongly considering getting them all powder coated black and this is a good way to see if I like it. Plati Dip is a rubber-like paint that peels off if I want it to. While meant for things like tools, it has a huge following in the automotive world, especially for things like wheels.
For scale, that piece of wood is 6 inches wide (it’s a 4×6″). Yes, it’s a massive tire!
