This script allows you to take “screenshots” of webpages or parts of it, directly on the users browser. The screenshot is based on the DOM and as such may not be 100% accurate to the real representation as it does not make an actual screenshot, but builds the screenshot based on the information available on the page.

My favourite Mac-OS-X text editor just became Open Source. Developer Allan Odgaard announced this in a blog post. The sources of version 2 of TextMate that are still considered Alpha are now available on Github.
A nice online generator CSS gradient generator. It generates specific code for Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Internet Explorer, etc.
Just discovered a really great tool that comes as part of Windows 7, the Problem Steps Recorder. It allows to record user interaction to a document allowing to reproduce and document a problem.
Therefor it takes a screenshot of every user action highlighting the focus areas of the ongoing interaction with a colored frame. Also it provides an automatically generated textual description of every step. Everything is stored in an MHTML container a custom Microsoft archive format that contains HTML as well as the screenshots in one single file that can be viewed with Internet Explorer. Several solutions to convert this file exist if Internet Explorer is not your favorite tool.
To launch it just type “psr” at the prompt in the Windows start menu.
QArt Coder is an online tool that allows to embed images into QR Codes.
QR codes are 2-dimensional bar codes that encode arbitrary text strings. A common use of QR codes is to encode URLs so that people can scan a QR code (for example, on an advertising poster, building roof, volleyball bikini, belt buckle, or airplane banner) to load a web site on a cell phone instead of having to “type” in a URL.
QR codes are encoded using Reed-Solomon error-correcting codes, so that a QR scanner does not have to see every pixel correctly in order to decode the content. The error correction makes it possible to introduce a few errors (fewer than the maximum that the algorithm can fix) in order to make an image. QArt Coder exploits that to embed an image into the QR code.
