Reduce Yahoo mail neo header space for more room


Update: Yahoo mail with new layout renders this obsolete.

The newer Yahoo mail beta (neo) really is a faster UI. However, The large header with room that is unused is a let down.  This one time, it appears that, Yahoo did not take into account the importance of real estate on top of the page, hitting User Experience. Reduce Yahoo mail neo header space for more room by installing SarathOnline's "Spacier Yahoo Neo" userscript below

The user script is fairly simple. You could install it in Firefox as a Greasemonkey script. Or install it on chrome directly. If you are new to UserScripts, follow these instructions to install them on your browser.

Be assured, it has no malicious code. All it does is install a correcting css to the document. The css file is located here.  And the script itself.
(function(){
var d=document,sid='__sar__yneo', fn='http://www.sarathonline.com/dyn/sfs/userscripts/ymail/yneo.css';
if(d.getElementById(sid)) return;
var s=document.createElement("link")
s.setAttribute("rel", "stylesheet")
s.setAttribute("type", "text/css")
s.setAttribute("href", fn)
s.id=sid
d.getElementsByTagName("head")[0].appendChild(s);
})();

Javascript: Convert Strings to Binary (and representing in a nerdy way!)

I follow those GoogleDevelopers Videos. Sometime back, in one of the presentations on GoogleIO, there was this interesting string of dots at the bottom of each page of the presentation. They looked like random big and small dots. A similar bunch of dots were also on the T-shirt of a presenter was wearing in another presentation. While it seemed something in the pattern, I could not find what it was. Finally, another presenter cleared the matter that those dots are just binary representation of "GOOGLEIO" (So much for advertizing Google IO, Impressive!).

So I wanna do it. Takes me back to days of those DSP classes at school. Nerdy me had to churn some old brain cells. I remember those first programming language classes in Pascal and C when you were asked to do fibonacci series and converting a binary string to ascii codes. That *experience* came handy here: Check it out!

Text to Binarize:
For those who came to copy the javascript code to convert string to binary, Here it is…

Add jquery in Chrome console

Many a time, a page you are debugging doesnot have jquery. This simple js will add(or prompt you to overwrite) jquery to any page from chrome console.

javascript:if(!window.jQuery||confirm('Overwrite\x20current\x20version?\x20v'+jQuery.fn.jquery))(function(d,s){s=d.createElement('script');s.src='https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8/jquery.js';(d.head||d.documentElement).appendChild(s)})(document);

MySql Copying Table Structures.

Some times you need to copy only table structures across databases. This article describes two ways of doing it.

If the whole database schema need to be exported, mysqldump is very effective. A --nodata flag will dump all tables' schema.

Like this.
mysqldump --nodata -p -u username databaseName
But if you want to copy a specific table, individually, you could use "create table like" feature. You could create it even from a different database. However it must be on the same mysqld instance.

Like this.
create table newtable like oldtable; --Or from a table in other database create table mytable like otherdatabase.tablename;
