Metapost: Reading ROT13

This is a reminder to everyone that there is a ROT13 button at the top of the blog. But when that's too cumbersome to use for reading through lots and lots of comments, I have found a shortcut that works well with my current browser (so it might work for you too!).

1. Enable the Bookmark Toolbar in Firefox. 

2. Rick-click the bookmark bar and add a New Bookmark. 

3. Paste the following code into the New Bookmark and name the bookmark "ROT13".


NOTE: This does work to read Disqus comments in my browser, but does not work to transform a comment that is still in the Disqus "compose" box. You will still need to compose comments in a ROT13 window, unless someone has a cleaner solution.

Addendum: Actually, I have now found that the Firefox LEET Key addon will let you transform text that exists in the Disqus comment field.

It's just a bit fiddly to use because you have to right-click the 1337 button at the bottom-right corner of the browser and select "Text Transformers --> ROT13" from a menu that is transparent, presumably because of my Windows 7 theme.

1337 button? On mine, when I highlight text and right-click the LeetKey menu is the first option. Then I hover over the "Text Transformers" sub-menu and press the "r" shortcut.

(I still used the website when composing my comment because I wasn't sure if it would take.)

Oh, hey, cool! It does that too.

I *did* read the "manual" for the plug-in, but I guess there's a reason why programmers stereotypically need people like me to write things down, because I did not see anything on how to actually USE LeetKey, just a list of version changes. ;)

You can also set a hotkey in leetkey to toggle the selected text. Right-click the 1337 button, choose LeetKey Settings, and in the second box there will be "Function Name"/"Key Shortcut Combination"; choose ROT13 for Function Name (it's way down the list) and then click in the Key Shortcut Combination box and press your chosen hotkey, and then click Apply down at the bottom.

I use Shift+F2. I don't remember why I picked that, but I've never had it conflict with anything.
