Naymz & Klout

I am mailed once/month by Naymz who tell me that they have discovered something interesting about me. I often login to see, but it rarely seems to be that interesting. I have not connected all my  networks to it, keeping it out of Yahoo and Facebook which I treat as mainly private networks. This week I decided to have a further look, among other reasons, I have forgotten how I came to use it. Continue reading “Naymz & Klout”

Nextscripts: Social Network Autoposter

I had a quick look at Nextscripts: Social Network Auto Poster. It claims to be able to forward posts to other social networks. These include as targets, twitter, linkedin and facebook. The also offer Google+ but that needs an additional library which may be chargeable. I need to work on this a bit more.

Since the blog is already forwarding to Facebook and now Medium via IFFTTT, which are the most important targets and I am unsure I want everything to go through to linkedin or even twitter, this may not be as useful as I hoped. I returned to this in Aug 2016 as I was interested in occasionally forwarding my micro blog to Medium. Continue reading “Nextscripts: Social Network Autoposter”

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.

Experiment

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.

Plazes

I used Plazes for a couple of years, until they turned it off. Like everything it has a wikipedia page; one of its delights was the automatic way that once configured your laptop would record your itinerary, and publish it through a web widget. Bit spooky. Obviously built by people that ‘got’ social, and in Europe too, which was why it was bought by Nokia in 2012 and almost certainly part of windows phone now.

I had a fairly detailed page in which I recorded notes on how to use the network, and its features. It was linked to their getsatisfaction site which they used to mange their customer correspondence.

I blogged about it at my Sun blog, here… is a search list from the oracle site and once on the old bliki. When I left Sun I blogged, about it on the snipsnap bliki here….

Second Life

Is this the future collaboration platform for the Internet, or another amazing waste of time.

Meta

This was a very sparsly occupied page, documenting laptop problems. I recreated this page on 23 July 2013 and I realise that this is no longer on my work’s laptop. I returned to this in December 2016 when considering using it as a platform for making videos since Xtranormal went tits up.

Much of my original engagement was through my then employer’s i.e. Sun Microsystems investment, resources and rooms. The were experimenting with using it as a marketing resource.

I developed an avatar, but Oracle have shit canned the Sun second life environment and I havn’t logged in since. Wonder if it’s still there?
