Fiddling with JavaScript

I have been working on some web stuff lately trying out different ideas with JavaScript and PHP. While trying learn some things in JavaScript I found a neat online tool called JSFiddle. Its kind of like a JavaScript IDE that let's you see your HTML, CSS, and JavaScript separated out and another window showing a preview of all your code running. I found it pretty handy for quickly trying out new ideas and will probably use it to show examples of JavaScript when I have something cool put together. Here's a link to it.

Fun with NFC Tags and Tasker for Android

I was wanting to do something with a bunch of NFC tags I had laying around and finally found a real life use case that I have everyday. When I get in my car I hook my phone up to the speakers and play music from the Google's Play Music App. After loading the app I have to find the playlist I want and it really just becomes too many button presses for me. So I came up with the idea to use the NFC tags to launch the app and auto play a given playlist. I have a couple NFC tags set up now for different playlists and when I tap a tag it loads up and starts playing. To do this I used a combination of NFC Task Launcher, Tasker, and a plugin for Tasker called Tasker AutoShortcut. Click the jump to see a guide on how to set this up.

More Friends Than You Can Handle

So my expected results of this were not quite what I wanted, but I do have scripts now to sign up and spam friend requests. The biggest issue is how many fake facebook accounts you can signup for before Facebook catches on and starts making you verify. Got 3 users using this twice during testing. Tried messing around with Tor in case it was something with Facebook watching the IP, but that didn't seem to help. Posted all my code to GitHub. Still working on the read me file, but it should just be a matter of running Main in PeopleGenerator, then moving the People.xml to FFacebook and running SignUp, then after that runs you should be able to run ActionRunner. ActionRunner is the file that needs to be edited for directing the fake users to spam friend requests. Might go back and streamline this a bit so files don't have to be moved and so you don't have to edit the code for spamming the target.
