Some assembly required

This blog is about unimplemented ideas. At least until they get ticked off; I suppose a few eventually will have implementations too, but fresh posts never will. Because that's the primary purpose of this blog: keeping track of ideas I'd like to dive into, or problems I'd like to see solved. Feel free to join me in implementing, or further developing these ideas. I don't mind working solo, but it's a whole lot more fun working in concert!

Make real link of Blogger details... URLs

When publishing a post at Blogger, you get a view much like this:

Your blog published successfully. (Show details ...)


Files published... 100%

archives/2005_11_08_ecmanaut_archive.html
2005/11/subscribe-to-feed-user-scripts.html
atom.xml
index.html

These paths are not links to these pages; let's make them. I have some of the base code covered already in my commentblogging scriptlet (it parses the stuff to make one link at the bottom of the page; should be a snap, adding links to all of them, while at it.

Completed! It became part of my somewhat larger Blogger publish ping and categorizer tool, since I'm trying to lay low on making multiple scripts for the same page, and this tool already addressed that page. (The reasoning behind this is that in Greasemonkey 0.6.3 and earlier, the user interface does not scale usability wise to more than about 30 scripts, and I'm pushing that threshold rather hard myself. 0.6.4 will be a saviour!)
