Ten thousand years of Roboshrub.

Fangs for the memories.




In today’s state, Roboshrub Incorporated is an entity entirely devoted
to the execution of what normal people would refer to as “bad ideas.”

It was the creator’s original idea that all concepts, whether
useful or not, contribute to the global subconscious level of progress
for the human race. Therefore, we contend that no idea is an unfit
idea, and vow to act on each and every one of them.

No Comment

By default, Blogger’s comment form allows you to enter plain text, with a scant few HTML tags to help format your text. What is this, 2007? In this day and age, I expect to find a rich text field complete with toolbar and modal dialogs. In fact, on Google’s Product Ideas forum, one popular request regarding comments was essentially this.

It should be incredibly easy for those propeller-headed Google-opers to build such a feature into Blogger — I know, because I did it three months ago:

Rich Text Comments Screenshot
How can you get this marvel in your browser, you ask? Install this script after installing the Greasemonkey extension for Firefox. This script also works fine in Opera if placed in your Userscripts folder, and Userscripts is enabled. I haven’t tested it in Chrome, which allegedly can run Greasemonkey scripts.

I don’t intend to use Chrome until it supports [Arbitrary Feature], which is only available as a Firefox extension. This is a deal breaker for me.

I would like to be able to use different fonts in the comment box, also have the ability to make them bigger or smaller & be able to import clip art. It would be like... a mini blog within a blog. It could be called a "smog."

Sadly, Blogger limits the HTML input you can have in a comment field. Font sizes wouldn't show up in the final comment if I added support for it.
