I made a quick and dirty userscript that displays a “Performance” graph on all user pages. For example, mine looks like this:


The script can be found here.

To install in Chrome, download the script, go to Tools | Extensions, and drag the downloaded script into the page. To install in Firefox, use Greasemonkey. To install in other browsers, do something else.

Let me know how it works for you guys.

SmartUnzip: A compressed archive extraction utility for Windows

Are you picky when it comes to unzipping archived files? Do you find yourself peeking into every compressed archive to see what is inside before you unzip it? Is it just a directory? Ok then, we’ll just unzip it directly. Is it a bunch of files, well then we’ll need to unzip it into a separate directory. I hate unzipping an archive into a separate directory only to find out that all the files were zipped up inside of a directory.  Then after you unzip, you have a directory inside a directory! Bleh.  This is where SmartUnzip comes in. It does the looking for you and determines if it should unzip the archive into a separate directory or not.  It also supports dragging/dropping multiple archives on the SmartUnzip window. Handy for those Ludum dare review sessions where you’ve downloaded lots of archives.  Sound interesting? Check out SmartUnzip
