mooSlide Revamp for MooTools 1.2

mooSlide is a customizable MooTools-based slider that pops into the page whenever and wherever you'd like. Potentially very useful -- just make sure you aren't covering a bunch of content up (like the demo).

Spam-Proof Email Links

MooTools core developer Michelle Steigewalt describes how she uses MooTools to prevent spambots from collecting emails from a website. Of course we all do this in one way or another -- is this better than your method?

JSMiner

Us programmers love games that make us think, like Minesweeper. JSMiner is a great translation to a web version. Kudos to this person -- seems like a loftly goal but they succeeded.

    Do / Undo Functionality with MooTools

    We all know that do/undo functionality is a God send for word processing apps. I've used those terms so often that I think of JavaScript actions in terms of "do" an "undo." I've put together a proof of concept Do/Undo class with MooTools. The MooTools...
