Some of these examples may be broken whilst I clean up the mess of a site migration. Thanks for your patience.

Finder-like column view from hierarchical lists with jQuery

Mac OS X's Finder features a nifty NeXT throwback - the column view. This lets you browse through a hierarchy of files in a relatively compact space, and still see your path through directory structure.

Ok already, just show me the downloads!

OS X Column View

There are a couple of jQuery plugins in the archive that claim to do this, but none really fit my core needs:

Finally something to show for my seven months on Mars

So I quit my job in newspapers last May and hauled my then-pregnant wife across the country to work for NASA.

I've been a busy little bee, working on all sorts of projects, mostly involving Drupal and/or jQuery. But sadly, not one has been allowed to see the light of day.

Semantic Tabs with jQuery

This plugin creates tabbed panels from semantic markup. What does this mean?

Many (most?) javascript tab solutions tend to take the following approach: In the markup, create a list of elements to use as the tabs themselves, then create a list of elements to use as the tab panels, like so:

Multi-column lists with jQuery, an alternative method

So I needed a method to take a long, nested list and turning it into a compact, multiple acolumn list, in order to display it as sort of a site map for the home page for a site I'm working on.

How to: Save a crapload of money converting from print to web

We spend lots of dough each year converting material from our dead-tree editions into web-friendlier versions for our web sites. We crank out a bunch of PDFs, and send them through the ether to somewhere where the labor is cheap and the workday long, like Vietnam, Indonesia or Canada or something. Then some poor soul slices 'n dices them into jpegs and links and such, and sends 'em on back, and posts them on our site.
