Browse with ease

Browsing through old questions on bb is now as easy as it can get. bbplay is now fully integrated with the site and you can click on the Play buttons you see on each post to start browsing old questions from that day!

Example usage:

  • Browse through questions from August 2009?
    • Click on August 2009 link on the right
    • Click Play on the first post

The random question version can be reached by clicking on the play button on the right side bar.

Keyboard shortcuts on Play:

j:  Next question (previous question chronologically)
k: Prev question
a: Show answer

Known issues:

  1. If you click play on non-quiz posts, like this one, Play starts in random mode
  2. The first 3 questions fetched are in unpredictable order. (I need to put a semaphore to sync the Asynchronous bird seed company – AJAX.)
  3. Keyboard shortcuts do not work on IE. From stats, we know most of our users use FF or Chrome. So its not a big problem.

As promised, the source will be made available under a free software license soon.

P.S: Apologies about the badly written post. 2 AM it is.
