iOS Placeholder & Juration

I've been pretty busy recently on a couple of small projects. As the name suggests, iOS Placeholder is a jQuery plugin that emulates the iOS behaviour of placeholder text in the browser. It's inspired by Robert Nyman's ideas on placeholder text behaviour, and offers clearer labelling of input fields once they are in focus.

The second project, Juration, is a simple time range parser/humanizer, inspired by the chronic and chronic_duration Ruby gems. Parsing takes a duration in words (e.g. 3mins 50secs) and returns that value in seconds. Stringifying does the inverse - taking a value in seconds and converting it to words. Feel free to have a play on the Juration demo page.
