Overriding a string the second-simplest way in Drupal 7

Here's the situation: You don't need administrator-customizable strings like the String Overrides modules provide, but you'd like the changes in a more share-able (or consistently version controlled) place than settings.php, which details an easy $conf way of doing string overrides.

Define and Use a JQuery Plugin as a Helper Function for Drupal JavaScript

Here's the basics of defining and using a JQuery plugin within the context of Drupal.

This is definitely not the best and highest use of a plugin, and may in fact be a downright abomination-- this isn't a plugin that really works outside the context of the code it is written for, and certainly not outside Drupal.

The first part here is simply how to call JQuery from Drupal, the second part is the plugin.
