MSN Soapbox Is No More

Well, MSN has decided to shut down their user-generated video service, Soapbox. Not that I care too much, but it does affect my work on a MySoju plugin for Plex, since many of MySoju's videos were hosted there. So, that means one less plugin I have to maintain. I kinda saw this coming when they announced earlier that it would be placed "on the back burner," and sure enough here it is.

"No Romaja" Userscript for KoreanClass101

I'm a paying member at KoreanClass101.com. It's a pretty good site for learning Korean, save for the unfortunate amount of romanization they use. One of the worst instances is in vocabulary lists, where a romanization sits directly next to the proper Hangul text for a word. A native-english brain prefers the romanization, which discourages learning vocabulary in actual Korean.

If you'd like that Romanization column to disappear, you can try out my userscript. Simply install Greasekit/Greasemonkey (instructions are here for Safari and here for Firefox) then head over to the page for my script and install it!

After that, your vocab lists should change from this:

To this!

MySoju Plex Plugin Update

Not a lot going on with the MySoju plugin for Plex, but I have added the ability to detect broken episodes, and to see what video site a certain episode is hosted at. Screenshots incoming!
