Escape!

Paul Ingraham ARCHIVEDMicroblog posts are archived and rarely updated. In contrast, most long-form articles on PainScience.com are updated regularly over the years.

Try to contain your excitement: you can now press the ESC key to close footnotes and other popups on PainScience.com! TRY!Press escape and this popup will go buh-bye. Assuming you are using a physical keyboard, that is. This minor-but-obvious feature has been on my to-do list from the beginning, for as long as there has been a to-do list for PainScience.com. Eight years? Ten? Something like that. So, finally, after four hours, a bit of hacky javascript, some surprising complexity (of course), et voila — you can finally dismiss popups with the keyboard. Ta da!

This is the MICROBLOG: small posts about interesting stuff that comes up while I’m updating & upgrading dozens of featured articles on PainScience.com. Follow along on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS. Sorry, no email subscription option at this time, but it’s in the works.
