Is there any decent quality anti-SOPA javascript I can add to my sites on the 18th?

Is there any quick'n'easy anti-SOPA javascript I can add to my site's HTML to protest on 18th Jan? Crucially it must contain a concise description of the dangers of SOPA, and shouldn't assume an American audience (i.e. "contact your representatives").

LG Cosmos 2 VN 251: Exporting information

Readability for PDFs?

I have to read a lot of academic papers. They are usually formatted into 2 columns per page. This is fine if I print them out, but when I read them on a computer screen, it is difficult/annoying for me to scroll up and down - I lose my place easily (I recognize this may be unusual). Is there software out there that will strip the text from a pdf into one column (and maybe put all the figures at the end or somewhere)? Like the Readability extension for text on the web, but for pdfs. Maybe a plugin for Adobe Acrobat? Linux or Windows, please. Thanks.

Will my cheap texting plan survive an upgrade?

The company I work for has offered to pay the cost to upgrade my personal iPhone 3gs to a 4s. I currently have unlimited data with the 200 SMS for $5 plan. I'm grandfathered in on the unlimited data plan but I've heard conflicting reports about the $5 message plan: a) to upgrade my phone I would have to either switch to a $20/month unlimited text message plan or go plan-less and pay $.20-.30/text, OR b) my $5 plan is safe and will survive the upgrade. So, which is it? [more inside]

I wish to cut the cord on my cordless.

I have some questions regarding MMS charges and the Facebook Messenger app. Between it and the upcoming iOS messages in iOS5 I would like to completely eliminate my texting plan (in light of AT&T's total dick move of eliminating the $10/month text plan-which I was going to move to after iOS5). I figure between Facebook and my iphone-owning friends, family, and girlfriend I should be 99.9% covered and I'll eat the per-text charge on the 2-3 a month that may slip by. I just cant seem to find a clear answer on one point, though: [more inside]

How do I send automated text messages to multiple recipients?

For a community health project, I need automated capability to send text messages to participants' phones based on a specified schedule, content and sequence of messages. The volume would be in the range of 100 recipients grouped into 6 or 8 different categories (each category would receive a distinct sequence of messages), with perhaps 2 or 3 messages per day to each recipient. Any suggestions?

How can I add line breaks to a text file?

How can I add line breaks to a text file? I'd like to insert line breaks into a text file so that each line of the text is no more than 33 characters, and I want to avoid line breaks inserted in the middle of words. I've seen online tools that add line breaks every X characters exactly, but this results in words cut in half. Is there an easy way to do what I'm hoping for? If I could just set the line length on Gmail, say, to 33 characters and email myself the text, that would be what I'm looking for. Thanks!
