Asking for help only works in environments of acceptance, inclusion and respect.

Maybe we should use a tooltip on the blur to explain things.

-----


Yeah I think the partial unblur affect is cool, but after a period w/o someone clicking a tooltip would be useful.

Awesome. Love the name/domain. Beautiful UI that will clearly keep getting more so. Couple of thoughts re design: 'Love sharing great things to do?' box should line up on the right side with the right side of the boxes above (using Safari.) I'd also try making the width of the sign up bar at the bottom the same as the footer bar (Home | What is This?, etc.) Keep up the sharp work.

Only use jQuery? Would love to hear more about the tech stack.

Be intentional with what we steal

Here are some great articles on the topic:

css design is beautiful though. in general, if you put a table design next to a css design, the css design will be more aesthetically pleasing.

why aren't we getting euro diesels in the us?

-----


I'm no expert but I believe the sulfur content is higher in North American diesel, but that's not too hard to handle, I think that's the old excuse and there are fairly clean ultra low sulfur diesels you can now buy. To pass California emissions, you need to put some sort of aqueous urea tank in to the exhaust system like an AdBlue or BlueTec and those cost a couple thousand dollars (I want to say it's like $3000 on a diesel sedan like a Subaru or the 320D)

I'm not sure why the costs are so high, it may be a patented technology, there isn't anything terribly exotic in it though.

If you can legitimately get in the 40-45mpg range, it's still a pretty good deal. A Lexus RX hybrid still only can get like 30mpg.

-----


We didn't get ultra low sulfur diesel here until a few years ago: http://www.greencarcongress.com/2006/06/ultra_lowsulfur.html

-----


Because there's a negative perception hump to get past in the usa. I tried suggesting a diesel, and everyone complains about how dirty it is and other myths.

There are diesels that get even better millage, like the Audi A2 with a mileage on it's diesel model ranging from 80 to 120 mpg. I never understand why car manufacturers don't make aerodynamic body designs for their cars. A honda insight with a diesel engine gets similar mileage.

-----


It used to be difficult - to the point of being impractical - to make a small diesel car run cleanly. IIRC, the technology really only arrived about 5 years ago. Also, large trucks belching plumes of black soot were pretty common until recently, and this is how many people here still think of diesel.

Edit: reference http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diesel_engine#Emissions

It used to be the case that US diesel was of inferior quality to European diesel, but I’ve no idea if that’s still the case.

-----


At least where I live (NH), diesel is more expensive than gasoline due to higher taxes.

-----


Also, modern refining technology allows a greater percentage of a barrel of oil to be made into gasoline, and the low-sulfur mandate has also added to the cost of production.

Diesel fuel used to be in some sense a waste product and thus historically was cheaper than gasoline. It's only been within last 5 years or so that diesel has been consistently more expensive than gasoline, at least in the US.

does this mean that if I am using tweetdeck on a mac that i am vulnerable?

-----


No, the exploit is only for applications capable of interpreting JavaScript, such as web browsers.

-----


Except that there are a lot of RIA twitter clients that render the tweets in a Webkit view.

-----


great hack in my opinion...

-----


Did I do something wrong here? Relatively new to HN. Is this how opinions are treated?

-----


It just doesn't add anything of value to the conversation. We all know it's a great hack, so it's just white noise to post it.

Not a hugely big deal. Just try to avoid the echo chamber and instead provide unique insight on the subject.

-----


I thought it was a great hack, too. I suppose we should stop passing out opinions here since they get down-modded. Folks, you can just not mod posts that offer no inheriant value to you.

Do you want someone down-modding your posts simply because you are expressing how you feel in the moment and had nothing else valuable to say? I looked specifically at the comments in this post because I wanted to up-mod someone who said "great hack" because I felt the same.

-----


> Do you want someone down-modding your posts simply because you ,,, had nothing ... valuable to say?

Yes, that's exactly what I want. Based on the vote count, I conclude that I'm not the only one.
