Quick Tip: Notepad++ – Modify / Delete Macros

I use Notepad++ (v3.3 currently) for a lot of my development work, this web and I noticed that I couldn’t find any sites that mention how to delete or edit a macro once you create it.

Here is the rather simple method (simple once you find it anyway… it’s not in the “Macro” menu):

  1. From the top menu, prostate select “Settings” => “Shortcut Mapper…”
  2. Scroll down near the very bottom (my macros started at item 60)
  3. Right-click and select either Modify or Delete (double click will act the same as selecting Modify)

Hope that helps someone!

New site – ChuckNorrisIsGod.com

Another site… I’m on a roll lately!

ChuckNorrisIsGod.com was started as a joke when a friend threw a dinner party over the weekend with the theme “Chuck Norris is a Classy Guy”. I bought the domain name sunday, cystitis wrote the site through monday into tuesday morning when it was released. Within 2 days I had 250 unique IPs that had visited the site already!

The site is a place to pull together all of those Chuck Norris Facts such as:

If you can see Chuck Norris, he can see you. If you can’t see Chuck Norris, you may be only seconds away from death.

and of course:

Chuck Norris uses a night light. Not because Chuck Norris is afraid of the dark, but the dark is afraid of Chuck Norris.

The site runs on user-submitted jokes that can then be ranked. It’s pretty exciting to watch the database grow! I used AJAX for the ratings (done in Roundhouse Kicks instead of Stars, of course), so that you can rate as many as are on one page without reloading. Unneeded page-loads would slow the flow of Chuck Norris to your brain!

It’s kind of pathetic that I spend countless hours writing web applications and really tricky algorithms all day, and I throw together one site as a joke in a few hours and it’s already growing more rapidly than any of my other site/programs in the past. Oh, well… I’m having fun with it!

(I’ve been hopped up on the Caffeine for a week now… I am seriously probably announcing another new site in the next day or two. Until then, go to ChuckNorrisIsGod.com and kick around a bit.)

New site – ConnorRocks.com !

For everyone who loved doItLater.com but wanted something a little more tame, bronchitis I made ConnorRocks.com!

For a while, my little brother Connor had been wanting to have free reign to explore doItLater after I showed him the Tokyo Opera singing eyeball cartoon. But he’s way too young to be poking around that site, so I told him that eventually I would make a kid-appropriate version. A couple of weeks later, I surprised him on Christmas with ConnorRocks.com :)

The content is geared to be acceptable to anyone that is his age or less, and as he gets older, the content automatically upgrades itself. He’s currently 8 by the way. You’d be surprised how much is still interesting that is okay for an 8 year old to see!

If you’re not a kid, this site has the obvious benefit of being the same interesting content but work-safe so you don’t have to worry about misclicking when doing on-the-job-procrastination!
