Monthly Donations: GnuPG and the Animal Shelter in Olsztyn

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

Yup, it’s time for another round of donations.

This month I’m supporting the GnuPG project, which is a free implementation of the OpenPGP standard, and a popular solution for encrypting e-mail messages. I’ve been using it for years, lately with Thunderbird — courtesy of the excellent Enigmail extension. GnuPG is developed and maintained by g10code, a company that was started by Werner Koch, the original author of the software — thanks guys!

I’m also making a donation to the Animal Shelter in Olsztyn, which helps homeless animals, and takes special care of elderly dogs and cats. To all the staff and volunteers of the shelter — thank you and best wishes!

I made one additional donation this month, on Feb 17th, which is celebrated in Poland as the World Cat Day. By tradition, every year on this date I make a donation to a cat, and this time it was this charming feline gentleman named Gummi Bear:

I know it’s more than a week late, but — Happy Cat Day, Gummi Bear!

SelectList 0.6

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

I released a new version of selectList, the multiple selection jQuery plugin. This version introduces jQuery 1.9 support, and you can get it from the project homepage, jQuery plugins (did I mention I’m happy the plugins site is back?), or from GitHub.

By the way, this release is the first one that I made with Grunt, the JavaScript build tool. My previous, homebrew solution for building jQuery plugins involved shell, Perl scripts, and Java, all duct taped together with a Makefile — and was exactly as horrible as it sounds. Grunt made the build process a lot more straightforward, and, hey, it’s all JavaScript now! If you’re a JavaScript developer, I wholeheartedly recommend you give Grunt a shot.
