SETI@Home Individual Statistics available

I know, its been all SETI stuff recently. I have extended the “smart agent” on the Ship of Fools page to obtain information on specific users that is not available on the general team page. Just click on a team member name in the stats table and a windowlet with the all available user stats should appear. I have moved the user information to a small database to facilitate manipulation, but data antiquation shouldn’t be a problem since the statistics are updated from SETI@home each time they are viewed. Beware that the Javascript support of Netscape 4.0x is sketchy at best, and you may have some problems viewing the pop-up windows if you are running this or an earlier version. Please let me know of any bugs you experience; I am more likely the cause than you!

SETI@home smart agent working

I have finished a “smart agent” for the SETI@home team page that updates the team statistics and downloads current team information into a table. To view it, visit the Ship of Fools page. I’ll be touching up the format and adding some more info pulled from SETI@home, and I may start storing information in a db so I can calculate trends over time.

seti page gains functionality

The Ship of Fools SETI@Home team page now allows users to update and view team statistics. Next: a tutorial for setting up SETI, and adding statistics tracking. Maybe a statistics database? Who knows.

DVD’s, DeCSS, DMCA, MPAA, and Other scary acronyms

Because of the recent fiasco surrounding DVD’s and the MPAA and (De)CSS, You’ll often hear me complain about this injustice or that. Before forming an opinion on the issue, be sure to do a little reading and thinking. Get the skinny on the case from my side and their’s. I won’t try to make the arguments again. Then, (if you choose light and not darkness), help promote my delinquency and grab the source and binaries I’ve mirrored here and here.

its alive!

I’ve moved most of the site content into a small access database to save coding time. I now add items through a web form which interfaces with an ODBC driver. I now plan on maturing the content of the side bar.

a site is born

Under construction? Quite. Since I registered, I decided
to waste a little (ahem) time creating a webpage and toying with style sheets.
What you see are the (preliminary) results. I used TopStyle
to help create the style sheet, and ColdFusion Studio to write the HTML.
