Exporter for Notes.app - Export or Backup Notes from Apple's OSX Notes app to Plain Text .txt
There's been a lot of interest in the latest version of the Notes app from Apple. While it offers an excellent, ubiquitous tool for note taking, there are concerns about portability (at least within my little circle where that's long been a topic of discussion). This little app bridges Notes with plain text, offering a little peace of mind for forward-thinking plain text lovers.

A tiny JavaScript helper to load and pre-load web fonts that are specified via @font-face. It uses best practices from other solutions, but it's still a unique combination:

It's tiny (793 bytes minimized and gzipped), so it can be easily included in every page.
It can preload a font before it's used.
It can solve the “invisible text” issue (WebKit-based browsers on slow network) by applying a class during font loading.
It can also solve the Flash Of Unformatted Text, aka FOUT (still happens in Internet Explorer).
Supports practically all browsers. Tested under the latest browser on Android, iOS, OS X, Windows, as well as under IE6+, Firefox 3.6+.
