Since my workplace once upon a time sadly chose to use MySQL instead of a real database, it happens quite frequently that I go digging around their website for information. Which is annoying partly because the way they organize their documentation stinks, and partly because they've decided that you want to read the actual text with a much smaller font than the one you've told your browser you want (that is, the cretins set font-size to 85% for <p> tags). So I tell Firefox to increase the font size, and I get the code examples in huge letters instead (which is kind of suitable, really, it only lacks a font that looks like it was written in crayon). Less bad, certainly, but still not good.

It took me until today to think "Wait a minute. This looks exactly like a reason to try out GreaseMonkey." So I did. And it rocks. A few lines of JavaScript, and now I get both text and code samples nicely sized. Take that, MySQL fuckers! Your evil webdesign is no match for the monkey!

Oh yes

For historical reasons of great silliness, I cannot resist this.
