Boss mode

I was doing a bit of CSS tweaking on the site this evening, and my mind started wandering. For some reason, I started thinking about how all the best old DOS games had a “boss mode” that you could activate, usually by pressing the “b” key, that would instantly pause the game and throw up a spreadsheet screen or something similar for when your boss walked up while you were playing at work.

So, since I was already in tweaking mode, I whipped up a short JavaScript function that hides the title banner, the sidebar, and all images when you hold control and double-click anywhere in the page. Now you can get your daily wonkofix without making it terribly obvious to The Man that you’re not doing work. Utterly useless, but it was fun to write.
