Asynchronous Tracking with Google

2 December 2009 13:43

Google Analytics has had its latest update by now allowing asynchronous tracking cools. Pretty neat and also useful if you’re suffering or concerned on page load times. Interesting to see how it would work with multiple GA accounts, but, in theory should be easy to tweak.

CFMail and Gmail

11 July 2008 12:20

Been looking a lot lately at various email related projects. One of the issues I noticed as part of this work is that if you send a mail with cfmail to a gmail account that only has a cfmailpart text/plain gmail won’t render it.

If you send both, it works fine.

Strong HTML

So, if you’re sending plain only, don’t put it in a cfmailpart. Probably shouldn’t have been in the first place, but, issue now solved.

Cool Gmail Discovery

19 December 2006 21:20

I think this is cool, even if no-one else does! Got an email today from an old colleague wishing me Merry Christmas, nothing out the ordinary there, but, when I looked at the details in gmail the email address I saw was “[email protected]” with a little note “(Yes, this is you)” by the side of it.

When I clicked on the find out more link I learnt that gmail ignores dots (.) in usernames. So, when all those people have asked “all one word?” on me giving out my email I can now say no, first.last or firstlast.

Mmm, geek.

Google Web Toolkit

17 May 2006 12:28

Another beta release from Google:

Google Web Toolkit (GWT) is a Java software development framework that makes writing AJAX applications like Google Maps and Gmail easy for developers who don’t speak browser quirks as a second language. Writing dynamic web applications today is a tedious and error-prone process; you spend 90% of your time working around subtle incompatabilities between web browsers and platforms, and JavaScript’s lack of modularity makes sharing, testing, and reusing AJAX components difficult and fragile.

Google Notebook

17 May 2006 12:26

Google is on a release spree again. This time yet another free service in the form of Google Notebook. It is a research type tool allowing you to save clips from various web sites into a notebook. Can’t help think this is “inspired” by 37signals Backpack or Writeboard apps but hey, still suspect it’ll quite handy.
