IIRC opera does not support this and would open any other href destination but # in the main window, disregarding the return 0. If you're worried about that, a plain link with a target can go in a <noscript> element, with the current code being outputted by a small piece of script preceeding it. Th...

Chii finds lame files by ed2k link [fixed by killing lame f]

Chii, and possibly some other database interfaces, find lame files when given an ed2k link with the same size as said file. An example from irc follows mostly intact: pelican !file ed2k://|file|[l33t-raws]Naruto_98_(640x480_WMV9).[EBC06440].avi|244850688|b723a487f67d4d83f6b60326f75707e6| Chii[AR] FI...

Method names are one thing; what they do, precisely, is another. I wouldn't normally advocate reinventing the wheel, but in this case it's a very small wheel and the code would likely have worked with all input on the first attempt. A small wheel doesn't mean there'll be no weird bugs, heck the abo...

Because there's the possibility of misunderstanding the interface, and utf-8 is actually simpler than I'm sure the documentation for Unicode::String is. Nah, method names are quite intuitive.

Why bother writing something that is already done, every time you need some conversion, especially if module that does conversion is common one and present almost everywhere? Because there's the possibility of misunderstanding the interface, and utf-8 is actually simpler than I'm sure the documenta...

well, it's not my script and i don't see how this could be fixed. I know what causes this particular problem: the jou of tenjou contains a 0A octet in UTF-16 representation. (Though I'm tempted to say that the real reason is over-reliance on Unicode libraries for such simple tasks as converting UTF...

Hmm, in that case, could this be considered as a request for an option to include even anime that has been voted for?

I did look before posting, but it seems to have been lost in a long, windy thread, not even being mentioned until about 70 posts in.

New genre: seinen [DENIED]

Because of the lack of a seinen (older analogue of shounen) genre, a lot of anime are being mistakenly classified as shounen... actually, that's pretty much all that can be said about this. The current situation is wrong and easy to fix, so is there any reason not to have a seinen genre?

What about using the 'blacklist' flag. If the user sets an anime on the blacklist (which they would probably do because the deleted the whole thing), then Chii shouldn't return it. I have anime which I have watched and deleted but which would not go on my blacklist, but the target of this change wa...

Notifies for non-javascript browsers [DONE]

For people with javascript browsers, I can understand that the particular features of a javascript window are desirable, but with a proper href and target="_blank" in the <a> element, notifies could also work for those who have either disabled scripting or use a browser without that functionality. T...

[Chii] !randomanime (un)watched should ex. deleted [tracked]

Chii's !randomanime function, if applied with a `watched' or `unwatched' argument, is essentially for picking anime from your collection. Episodes for which you have deleted all files turning up is annoying and is not, I think, an attribute of this feature that benefits anyone.

Anime hint - `filter: none' broken [fixed i guess]

Setting filter to `none' has, it seems, very little if any effect, whereas the name and other choices available imply that even anime that the user has watched should be shown.
