Spent a little while confused after implementing an embeddable map using the Google Maps Engine. Rather than display the map in Chrome, it brought up a sad face complaining of a redirect loop.
I did a bit of Googling around and found the fix is actually quite simple!
Change embed: http://mapsengine.google.com/map/u/0/embed?mid=zcNkjpBR7F4w.kTporAbuNPS8
To view: http://mapsengine.google.com/map/u/0/view?mid=zcNkjpBR7F4w.kTporAbuNPS8
Your problem shall be solved. Redirect loop be gone!
I’ve put up a version of my slides here (For best results, view the slides in Chrome):
All the Ninja Block functionality and slide switching functionality has been disabled as we can’t have you all switching my lights on/off or driving other people mad switching slides as they try to view them!

To all those who came to the presentation at WDS2013, thank you for watching and participating! If you do make something with any of the above technologies, get in touch with me, I’d love to see what you do!
Another big thank you to Maxine, John and the whole Web Directions South team for organising an incredible conference and for being lovely enough to have me present!
Today I decided I wanted to be able to run Sublime Text from my Terminal. Did a bit of Googling and pieced together the steps here.
Setting up “bin” in your home directory
1. Make a folder called “Bin” in your home directory if it doesn’t already exist. If you’re not sure how or what I mean, open a Terminal and type:
You’re now in your home directory! Now we’ll create a directory called “bin”:
Link up your Sublime application file to a shortcut
2. Once that’s created run this command to create a symlink to your Sublime Text installation (note this is for Sublime Text 2):
ln -s "/Applications/Sublime Text 2.app/Contents/SharedSupport/bin/subl" ~/bin/subl
Check if it works!
3. Restart your Terminal and it may already work. Type in:
Do you see help text that starts with “Sublime Text 2 Build…”? If so, hooray for efficiently and skipping everything else. Go straight to step 9.
For me though, I wasn’t so lucky and had to do a bit more. If you’re as unfortunate as me, continue along!
Update your .bash-profile file to look in our ~/bin directory
4. Go to your home directory again:
5. Open up your .bash-profile file (in vim or whichever other text editor you can use until we get Sublime in there!):
6 (I know Vim). If you know Vim or whichever other text editor you used above, just add the following to the end of the file:
Wha? What is this vim you speak of?
6 (I don’t know Vim). Not sure how to use Vim? Follow along!
Firstly press the letter “i” on your keyboard to get into insert mode.
Then type in:
Press “esc” to leave insert mode.
Type in this to save your file and close it:
Testing if our update worked!
7. Close your terminal and open it again.
8. Type in:
Hopefully that comes up with help text that starts with “Sublime Text 2 Build…”. If so, tis happy times!
Opening up files
9. Now to open any file, you can use the subl command like so:
Have fun with your newly Terminally-accessible Sublime Text 2!
