Whimsical Jerusalem Pedestrian Crossing Signs

I noticed these in walking around in Jerusalem and I haven't seen a lot about them on the web yet, so I thought I'd post them. The last one's a fake, obviously put up by a concerned citizen who thought that werewolves weren't getting the representation they deserved. There are several more that I haven't photographed, including at least 2 more fakes: a man dragging a baby, and an angel as well as at least two authentic ones, a man with one hand in a fist and the other with fingers spread and a fat man. I'll post those eventually.

Streamlining Ober

I made some changes to Ober that make it quicker to use. Now, when you right-click a word, Ober does everything in path-like fashion:
  1. if the word is an Ober built-in, execute it
  2. if the word is a class name, run the main with the args to end of line
  3. if the word is a shell command, run it
  4. if the word is a file, directory, or URL, open it
If you middle click, that sets a hint to tell the command that if it is appropriate, open a new viewer instead of replacing the current one.

Also, I made a runnable jar for it all, so you don't have to build it.

Here's the new doc page
