  • Geoff's site: Karma
    need hyperlinks between pages when URIs look like karma up blah As usual all code is in a public svn repo I m always impressed by how Rails handles escaping HTML JavaScript etc Instead of having to write or even use a bunch of methods it just takes care of the data munging behind the scenes I suspect the only problem with this database will be spam since it is so easy to create an entry I hate CAPTCHAs with a vengeance so I m definitely not going to add something like that If things get too bad I guess I ll block some IPs and or reset the DB so don t be depressed if your karma disappears Another option would be to cease showing things with a score below some threshold that way users can get rid of spam and annoy their friends and I can sit back and be lazy On an unrelated note Sea Tac lacks free wifi This wouldn t be a problem except that EDGE is filtered heavily as well Outgoing packets not addressed to port 80 get dropped HTTP on other ports does not work IMAP and POP don t work not even

  • Geoff's site: A Used Car!
    be fun to drive Requirement 2 ruled out similar cars such as the S2000 and newer versions of the MR2 Consumer Reports rated the Miata more reliable than the MR2 or pretty much any other sporty car so I settled on the Miata Although it s not a very powerful car only 140hp it more than makes up for it with its light weight short gears and excellent handling My

  • Geoff's site: Bloglines Beta
    we finally launched Bloglines Beta a redesign of the once popular news reader It s been the largest and most visible project that I ve had a hand in and I m pretty happy with what has been accomplished so far Pretty much all of the reviews are positive Obviously not all the features are there yet but it s nice to get some praise for the hard work Controlling

  • Geoff's site: Controlling X10 Appliances with the iPhone
    styling it works pretty well The Firecracker can only transmit not receive data so I had to store appliance state in the database Besides that minor annoyance everything worked out pretty well I added iUI styling and I m pretty happy with what I ve got so far Anyone who wants to can check out the source here It s nowhere near done There is no way to add houses

  • Geoff's site: iBloglines 2.0
    at least be consistent and indent all of it Timestamps are below item text You know so you can try to guess when an article was published based on its content iUI s JavaScript animations are enabled Although they look cool on a PC the iPhone animates them at about three frames per second This means pages take at least an extra second to load because you have to taste the bitter eye candy Again this is probably because nobody at NewsGator tried to use their site on an iPhone NewsGator shows 20 items per page meaning pretty much any feed worth reading and many that aren t such as Digg force you to scroll like crazy This wouldn t be so bad except for marking unread read sucks There s no way to mark all items on the current page as read Items default to unread and you must manually mark each one or press the All Read button Instead of marking everything on the current page read All Read marks all unread items in the feed including ones you could not have possibly seen yet Larger items are collapsed but if you expand them they are not marked read So if you re actually reading any feed with more than a few sentences of text you have to click twice for every item Scrolling all the way to the bottom which takes a while see above and clicking next doesn t mark anything read The three main problems Items default to unread Going to the next page does not mark the last page read Clicking All Read marks every unread item in the feed create a trifecta of unusability I have no clue what they were thinking when they made this actually I do It was Deploy an

  • Geoff's site: iBloglines
    take long for an iPhone version of Bloglines to come about Over the next few days the team polished it up and deployed it You can try iBloglines out here It should work alright in Firefox and Safari but it really shines on the iPhone I d say it s better than the current mobile Bloglines but of course iSafari can do XMLHttpRequests Not bad for rapid application development in

  • Geoff's site: Nike++
    that allows people to create accounts upload Nike XML files and view their runs To view an example just log in as geoff with the password geoff This thing is definitely a work in progress but if you want to screw around with the code you can download it here The easiest way to deploy and test everything would probably be to just generate a generic Rails app and then

  • Geoff's site: XML Parsing in Ruby
    I threw together a quick script that parses the Nike iPod data and prints it out You can get it here If you re too lazy to copy one of the XML files off your iPod or too lazy to run or too poor nonconformist to buy an iPod etc I ve also got a test file I haven t tried XML parsing in too many other languages but Ruby
