Find me at SXSW 2013

I’ll be attending SXSW Interactive 2013 this year and I hope to meet some fans of Bacon Ipsum. If you see me wandering around, feel free to say hi.  I’m introverted, but I don’t bite (unless you’re actually made of bacon).


Or keep an eye out for my Bacon Ipsum badge.  @jenheartsart makes custom Twitter badges for people.  You should get one.  They’re awesome.

jQuery Plugin Update

We’ve added a ‘no_tags’ option to the jQuery Plugin to keep the code from wrapping the output in <p> tags.  Thanks to Joel Lord for the suggestion.

One of my co-workers dressed up as me for our Halloween contest at work (including my custom Twitter badge).  Well done!

Meaty Social Politics

If you’re sick of the constant political drivel on Facebook, check out the Meaty Social Politics extension for Chrome that @WhiteyOmits whipped up.  It changes instances of ‘Obama’, ‘Romney’, ‘Election’, etc. into paragraphs of bacon ipsum via our API.

It also has a snazzy icon.  Well done sir!

P.S. I don’t care who you vote for, but you should still go vote.

Odd behavior with Firefox

I saw a Tweet come across the wire last night and have been digging into the issue:

After digging into it a bit more, it seems to be an issue only with Firefox and where you start copying text.  If we use the mouse and start selecting text right at the first letter (where the red dot is), it works fine.  You’ll see in View Selection Source that only the bacon ipsum content is selected and it can be pasted into dabblet without any issues.

If we put the mouse a little bit above the first bacon ipsum text and start selecting, some of the HTML is getting selected as well.

You can replicate the results in this dabblet and here’s more info via @wrumsby.  Going to put this out on Twitter, hopefully the Mozilla team will see it and weigh in.
