Trump Dump Data & Playing with TAGS

Image from page 60 of “Children’s ballads from history and folklore” (1886) flickr photo by Internet Archive Book Images shared with no copyright restriction (Flickr Commons) Driven mad by curiousity after this Matthew Baldwin tweet, I built this little thing.

Google Script Folder Copying Postmortem

Image from page 93 of “Elementary and dental radiography” (1813) flickr photo by Internet Archive Book Images shared with no copyright restriction (Flickr Commons) This is the blow-by-blow documentation of a failure of sorts.

Custom Web Form to Google Sheets

Sometimes the options given in Google Forms just won’t quite work for what you want to do. Maybe you want a particular look, or an interaction, or whatever that Google Forms just won’t do. Luckily, it’s not too hard to make a custom form that can do whatever you want and still has the ability […]

Google Folder to Google Doc Script- The Video

Because I really thought the script to take Google Folder contents and automatically generate a document with headings that match the folder names and automatically linked source documents1 was far cooler than anyone realized . . . I decided to make a poor quality video chastising you and proving the interestingness beyond doubt. Keep in […]
