Hashtags working in Hebrew

Hashtags working in Hebrew

Hello all,

I have been using twitter quite a lot recently and to users that are using non-Latin tweets, it might have occurred that the hashtags don’t work.

So I took the time to write a greasemonkey script that does the job (for Firefox, Chrome, Webkit and others).

It will add a search link on the word, unfortunately due to a twitter bug, I had to remove the number sign (#) because twitter can’t search with it.

  • The script should work with all non-Latin languages (tested Hebrew, Arabic and Chinese)
  • The script does not work when the “more” button is pressed. If anyone knows how to solve that please contact me. fixed!

I hope this becomes a useful tool for people.

Cinelerra
Hey all,

This weekend I am once again editing the video of the lectures we took at August Penguin, the Israeli open source community yearly meeting. This year it was kinda hard because there were two lectures being given simultaneous, so there are about 8 hours of video to edit.

Like last time, I am editing the videos with Cinelerra, the open source video editor. Last year I also wrote a post in Hebrew while editing the video, and I was hoping to keep the tradition. Also, this year, I have a little code surprise :-).
