Read The Art & Science of Javascript, Mahemoff and others, 2007. Book site. Contains code examples for several web applications from simple to sophisticated. Some debugging tools are introduced. Having multiple authors invites the reader to imagine ways to combine the separate techniques and expand on the applications in each category. Relevance to testing includes approaches such as creating scaffolding for test harnesses, using the language to analyze other data or code, and developing system or user interaction models.

Created this site and imported contents from blogspot. Tags were automatically converted to categories.

Downloaded IE8 beta 2 browser. After installation, IE startup regularly had error. “Could not load file or assembly ‘Microsoft.mshtml, Version=7.0.3300.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a’ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.” Ran regedit, searched for filename which was shown under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT for InProcServer32. Version property was 7.0, actual file \WINDOWS\system32\mshtml.dll had version 8.00.6001.18241, so edited registry to match. IE start then displayed ok.

Imported bookmark file exported from zigtag in to netvouz and saw tags.

Attempt to do same for simpy had only “bookmarks imported zigtag”. Import from del.icio.us prompted login then showed tags. IE7 and Firefox 3 browser imports did not see any of the links from the file.

Buru could not import local bookmarks from zigtag file. Saw only 100 out of 1132 from delicious. Was able to import local bookmarks from IE export; difference seemed to be that this had no TAGS=”” entries.

Zigtag had recent taglist numbering 1063 links though it required login. Blinklist displays tagcloud without login, so needed to synchronize the two. Exported blinklist to .htm for backup then deleted all links.

Zigtag exports to bookmark .htm file. Blinklist import saw links, but only tag shown was “Imported”. This also occurred with its own .htm backup file.

Workaround was to use del.icio.us by exporting tags for backup, deleting account to avoid having to remove links singly, then recreating new empty account, and importing zigtag .htm file which showed tags okay. Deleted Zigtag_Imported_Bookmarks tag to minimize clutter. Blinklist import has mode to source from delicious. URL was not recognized until removed trailing “?”, then could login, and displayed links in XML format. Saved to file, then imported to blinklist which now recognized tags okay in list and cloud.
