@TimStone Test harnessing transactions in a PHP object mapper and about to start fiddling with a Paypal IPN handler ... yawn. @TheUnhandledException - That sounds good to me, you know what they say, read is only a +w away from write
Actually this is still an issue. Text like: *This is a test* Shows up in XMPP as: <i>This is a test</i> When it should be italic. I'll bet that the text I send to the xmpp4r library gets HTML encoded... so I need to find a way to send raw XML to the XMPP client, then I can *remove* the HTML entities decoder I just added.
The homepage for all Stack Exchange sites is intentionally simple: it's a list of the last (n) questions by activity date.
Activity date means new questions, or questions with new answers or new edits.
This has worked reasonably well for the last two years, but it is breaking down on Stack Ov...
Maybe food would help me figure out how a SOChatFeed can look up an SOChatRoom when the SOChatRooms are stored as member variables of the SOChatBridge but the SOChatFeed doesn't have a way to talk to the SOChatBridge...
Instead of sorting questions by their activity, sort questions by their adjusted activity.
A question's freshness gets a 20% freshness penalty per ignored tag.
A question's freshness gets a 25% freshness boost per interesting tag.
see how the homepage would change with this change.
var memo = ;
for (var good = 0; good <= 5; good++)
for (var bad = 0; bad <= 5; bad++)
memo.push(Math.pow(0.25, good) / Math.pow(0.20, bad))
var tags = _get_tags(question_summary);
var good_tags = tags.intersect(interesting_tags).length;
var bad_tags = tags.intersect(ignored_tags).length;
var last_activity = new Date($(question_summary).find(".started .relativetime")
You could add a new set of tabs underneath the Active tab.
This would be actual new questions not questions that have been edited or answered. Nice new and shiny questions with zero answers.
This would be all the other questions - recently edited or recently answered.
