safety second - encoding URLs

Just a note to my future self: you need to be not so blasé about building and then encoding URLs. And you can't just use javascript's encodeURI()on the whole thing, things like & will all be escaped inside of it. Instead, use encodeURIComponent() on the separate bits of it.

Again, kind of no-brainer but I got a slightly singed by it this week.
