TinyBox2 modal box script brings a ton of new features and still clocks in under 5KB. The script now supports iframes and images natively. You can POST with Ajax. Clicking ESC will close the window. Callback functions can be passed for load and close events.

You can set CSS IDs to override the default styling. CSS position can be toggled between fixed and absolute. The mask opacity can be sent. You have full control over window location. And of course there is now a close button out of the box you can toggle.

This script is tested in IE7+, FF, Chrome, Opera, and Safari and is available free of charge for both personal or commercial projects under the creative commons license.

MongoDB (from “humongous”) is a scalable, high-performance, open source, document-oriented database. It is written in C++. They built MongoDB from our own experiences building large scale, high availability, robust systems. They didn’t start from scratch, they really tried to figure out what was broken, and tackle that.

So the way about MongoDB is that if you take MySql, and change the data model from relational to document based, you get a lot of great features: embedded docs for speed, manageability, agile development with schema-less databases, easier horizontal scalability because joins aren’t as important. There are lots of things that work great in relational databases: indexes, dynamic queries and updates to name a few, and they haven’t changed much there.

Newswall is a tool to display feeds and e-mails. Just like on a “news wall” all messages – sorted by date and time – show up in small blocks, if possible together with an image.

That way it is easy to find the most important and interesting news and then have a closer look at these. So it is sort of a feed reader mixed with an e-mail viewer having the look of an image gallery.

To install the script you need a webserver with PHP (tested with Apache2 and PHP 5.2.3), there’s no need for a database. It has been tested on Firefox 3, Safari 4, IE 8 and Chrome.
