One line browser notepad

Sometimes I just need to type garbage. Just to clear out my mind. Using editors to type such gibberish annoys me because it clutters my project workspace (I’m picky, I know).

So I do this. Since I live in the browser, I just open a new tab and type in the url tab.

data:text/html, <html contenteditable>

Voila, browser notepad.

Why it works?

You don’t need to remember it. It’s not rocket science. We are using the Data URI’s format and telling the browser to render an html (try “javascript:alert(‘poop’);”). The content of said html is a simple html line with the html5 attribute contenteditable. This works only on modern browsers that understand this attribute. Click and type!


Throttle position sensor on the love cube is giving us trouble, which is a bit to fix between parts and labor. I was hoping it was just water in the fuel line. 

Blue book value keeps lowerinh, debating the value of repair, given that we just had a few other repairs done too. I’m thinking that unless we find a really good deal on repair elsewhere, that’s the end of our lovely element.
