Google Apps Script: Lite Contacts Directory for Sites or as a Service

A while back I came across a guest post on the Google Apps Developer blog by Steve Webster at Dito which demonstrated an Autocomplete Email Addresses in Apps Script. Not only was this a great demonstration of what you can do with the Apps Script UI but Steve and the guys at Dito had made […]

What you can’t do with Gmail and Document Services now available in Apps Script

Google recently announce Gmail and Document Services now available in Apps Script, which wasn’t a huge surprise as they had already announced it at the Google I/O and I had picked up on it in Automating your inbox with Google Apps Script. So when asked if I could create a gadget to sit in a […]

Google Spreadsheets and floating point errors aka when is 65078736491511804 + 1 = 65078736491511808 (and automatically archiving your Twitter Status Updates)

Update: You can ignore most of this post as I noticed the Twitter API can return ids as a string.
