Twitter Column Expander

A friend mentioned to me that they were annoyed with the way the new Twitter layout wasted lots of pixels to the left and the right of the timeline. So I knocked together a quick user script for Google Chrome to do this.

I've had this sitting around for a while, but I've finally got around to setting up somewhere where I can put it.

Newspaper Spin Javascript

Looking for any excuse to play around with javascript I've written a newspaper spinning effect file which makes pages spin towards you like in the movies.

You can get it to happen on any site by saving the following link as a bookmark (or dragging it to your bookmark bar) and clicking on it:
Newspaper Spin This!

Turns out it's incredibly easy to do the transformations on the body element in HTML. It's just a case of setting the appropriate style value to the desired rotation amount.
