BlogWatcher bug fix

(Is anybody besides me using the BlogWatcher web app that I wrote?)

Posts MIA from BlogWatcher

This is a bit embarrassing, but it appears that, for those people who use BlogWatcher as their RSS reader, my own blog posts weren't showing up. :( . I wouldn't have known even now, except that Wendy mentioned seeing things in Xanga that weren't showing up in BW.

I believe it's resolved now.

Server's back

Did you miss me? ;)

I've completed the lion's share of my server upgrades. All that's left are a few minor tweaks. So if you see something that I'm hosting that's not working right, please let me know so I can find the problem.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled blog

Server going down for a bit

(I know - you all though I was dead, didn't you.) ;)

Another BlogWatcher?

Well, this is sort of cool. I've been lead to an article about writing an RSS reading using Ajax and PHP, which is exactly what BlogWatcher is. I've only skimmed it so far, but it looks similar to what I've done, at least on a basic level. Maybe I'll be able to get some pointers to improve my code.

More BlogWatcher name ideas

I've come up with some more possible domain names for BlogWatcher. Your comments are welcome:

BlogWatcher bugs fixed, plus a question

OK. I think I've gotten the last of the Internet Explorer related bugs taken care of in BlogWatcher, my Ajax-based rss/news reader. I've got a lot of work to do to optimize it so that it runs faster, but I'm not planning on more features at this point, and I don't know of any pending bugs. Please let me know if you encounter any.

BlogWatcher bug with IE

I apologize to those of you who use BlogWatcher from Internet Explorer. I've discovered that there's a bug in the code I added recently for rating posts. Your ratings are in fact being accepted, but it may not appear that way some times.

What's supposed to happen when yo click on one of the rating levels is this:

Tagging posts in BlogWatcher

The changes to BlogWatcher have been completed. There are now two new feeds available on the right side of the subscription page. They are labeled "BlogWatcher Tagged Good Posts" and "BlogWatcher Tagged Posts". The first will include the 20 most recently tagged posts where the average rating is "good" or "very good". The second includes the 20 most recently tagged posts, no matter what the rating (in case you want to see the posts people tagged as "bad."

New BlogWatcher change partially implemented

As there seemed to be some interest in my idea for "tagging" posts in BlogWatcher, I've begun the process of implementing it. Right now, in every post, you should see a graphic indicating the average rating that post has received from all subscribers. If nobody's rated it, then it defaults to neutral. You can also set your own rating.

There are five possible ratings for you to use:
