Chrome “special” pages
Date Created: November 14, 2012  Date Modified: November 14, 2012

Since I cant remember all of these I decided to post them here–Oh you dont know what they are?, there Chrome special pages which give you all sorts of fun info–some are self explanatory (and accessible via the interface) like bookmarks and history, some are informative if your troubleshooting and others Im still yet to figure out…

List of Chrome URLs

For Debug

The following pages are for debugging purposes only. Because they crash or hang the renderer, they’re not linked directly; you can type them into the address bar if you need them.

  • chrome://crash
  • chrome://kill
  • chrome://hang
  • chrome://shorthang
  • chrome://gpuclean
  • chrome://gpucrash
  • chrome://gpuhang

Chrome Timeline
Date Created: September 9, 2012  Date Modified: September 10, 2012

Before Chrome came out we all loved the functionality firebug bought to firefox, and being that I have been using FF recently I had forgotten how much better Chrome’s debugging toolset is. One of the tools I missed was the timeline, being able to see a visulization of your scripts and their load is really something that does pleasth. I noticed as you can see in the pic below, what scripts were resource hungry, and also which image element I could optimise to save that bit of bandwidth.
To activate the timeline, just right click your page > inspect element > Click the Timeline tab, then hit the record button in the bottom left toolbar, 4th button along (black circle will turn red when recording).

Click this and refresh your page and watch the fun. Hit the record button again to stop recording once the page has stopped loading all its elements.
Looks like I have some site maintenance to do…

NOTE: The information used in the Chrome tool shows speeds of the Chrome browser, it is still worth checking this against other tools, as IE and Mozilla may load at different rates depending on a number of variables.

Google Reading Level
Date Created: September 3, 2012  Date Modified: September 3, 2012

As the internet expands its user base and more and more people take on the role of content creators the more likely you are to find less relevant information using a standard Google search. There are countless ways to filter results from a standard search; this post only addresses one–Reading Level. But before we get to this, lets look at some other tools used in the research arena…

Having worked in higherEd, I know the contention regarding Google Scholar, as often as I hear “Its the best, you should use it”, I also hear “Never, EVER use Google Scholar”. The reasons vary depending on what the field of study is, so ask you lecturer or tutor their thoughts on Google Scholar before you start using it for assignments. In the study of Laws, the use of tools like LexusNexus and WestLaw are far better resources than Google Scholar, as these advance searches are tailored for legal research, (they are also paid services).

Google Reading Level is not a standalone application, its just an advance search tool that can filter the results by the language used. This is great for sorting out links on the basis of the language level used. Advanced returns links more of the academic and legal reading level, the screen cap below shows WA State Parliament Hansard as the first result for the search string “Rayney Trial” (a high profile case that has exploded across the local media), where without the Advanced filter, the Hansard would be returned much further down the results (if at all).

In situations such as the above where there is a great deal of news articles, most of which rehash content from a handful of original sources (Court Journalists in this example), the ability to exclude results written for consumption by the general populace does speed up the research process.

Image Correction Made Easy
Date Created: May 3, 2010  Date Modified: January 7, 2013

Curves, Historgam, Selective Colour, Replace Colour, Channel Mixer, Gamma, Brightness and Contrast–So many ways to correct colour in photoshoop, however as I am the worlds greatest photographer, I never need to use these… SURE!

I took this pic when I was still getting use to the DSLR, its of my friends dog whos name I cannot divulge. As you can tell its overexposed.

I used Gamma to make it look less washed out

This pic of Perth hip-hop MC Xzact, was one I took on 35mm back when I was doing intro to photography, the scan is too bright but I never knew untill I brought an LCD monitor.

I adjusted the black by using curves–now you can see the grainyness of the film, and how dirty my lense was.
