Heat Maps

Donovan Ransome showed me Heatmapapi which looks pretty damn cool. So I have been trying to make one.

I eventually gave up, the api needs server side programming skills and access. The programming skills and creating a accessible environment seemed too hard and time consuming.

Linksys WAG 54GS & Power Offs

Household Power Test

I tested the household power yesterday and turned the Gateway off for 2 hours.

Resetting Factory Defaults

When it came up the wireless wouldn’t work. So I rang Linksys and they talked me through resetting factory defaults.

For those of you following me, you must document your encapsulation and consequent parameters, your wireless settings and encryption passwords and any firewall ports that are open.

It seems that the reliability of a system boot after a sustained power down is not 100%.

Powering Down

I was recommended to power down the gateway by removing the power lead from the appliance. I assume using the switch on the wall plug is equally effective. Don’t use the power switch on the front of the box. This is a deeply flawed piece of UI design 🙁

Google Gadgets

Notes on integrating Google Search and Google Friend Connect to my site. This includes some google code that never worked on snipsnap, and doesn’t work here. 28 June 2013

Google Search

Can I make a google search of the site?

I experimented with the snipsnap field macro and tried to make http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=$query+site%3Adavelevy.info, where $query is the results of the text box, and the URL is the search procedure but this didn’t render or work. This solution may need a new search macro which would be fun. If I need to write a macro, see http://snipsnap.org/comments/Macro+Tutorial. It would only be one word without a macro. Annoyingly I could write the procedure in Python.

However a bit of Googling found this? http://www.google.com/cse/?v

 

Google Friends

I have decided to play with Google Friends on this site.

Can I leave the config files on davelevy.info? Looks like not!

I have registered http://davelevy.info as a GFC site in implemented the signin, members and comments on http://davelevy.info/friends. I have seen prettier but I have time to work on it.

I have tried to see if the scripts will leverage the config files hosted on davelevy.info. It seems not. This might be a bit of a problem because of the amount of redirection involved. NB All references to snipsnap, through the host web server are redirected from port 80 to another port. Where do I install the config files? The webserver root, or the jetty server root or in the snipsnap trees. (Some files are rendered directly, such as the css files, so it may be possible to get jetty to serve it, but probably not necessary. The server root should work.).

I removed the web site static files, and display pages recently 28 June 2013

The google code is google.friendconnect.container.setParentUrl(‘/’ /* location of rpc_relay.html and canvas.html */); where does it constrain itself to the domain.

Binky Netzen

This is one of a series of NWN character notes. Binky is fighter/thief who travels with Mischa Waymeet in the NWN game, Shadow of Udrentide. I am not sure that the fighter/thief was such a good idea. See Of Fighter/Thieves @ http://forums.rpgforums.net. I discuss the difficulty in keeping up with the game since the scales are no longer exponential. (See also Playing a Rogue on this wiki.)I have still kept the classing at evens for the moment. i.e. until the end of Shadow of Udrentide. This will allow me to adopt a third class if I choose.
