sometimes the work templating environment can be amazing 

I spent the last couple of work days developing a new set of tools for the ingentaconnect browse and search sections. Its been quite an eye opener even for me.

In the past two days I have created alternative print formats for all the browse pages to make printing out stuff easier. Its pretty simple. I basically stripped out all the templating chrome on the page and the sitemap takes care of the linking.

I also created a series of links to bookmark pages on sites like del.icio.us, Furl and a few others. This morning I created OpenUrl links for all the browse pages in about 30 minutes and sorted out the RSS links for the pages.

And I have written a load of snazzy javascript to show and hide all the options and a load more content in the navbar too.

Its actually been enjoyable to work on new features for connect instead of ^H^H^H^H^H^H little ByDesigns. Hopefully in time James will take up a lot of the ByDesign work so I wont have to do it any more.
