Crossword script

OK Jason. I just found answers to these questions by exploring your “my perl Scripts” link. Thanks, John.

Crossword Script versions.

A year or two ago I tried unsucessfully to install the Crossword demo on my site. A few months ago I took it up again, finally figuring out what you had meant re. the file paths. It is working fine! Before purchasing the registered version could you please tell me: 1. Is provision made to “pass” if players can’t make a move, (this is impossible on demo)? 2. Does the current version tally points automatically? Very sorry to hear about your site hacking. Hope the culprit is caught soon. John (Toronto)

Blogs

Well, I first heard about Blogs last week, and I’ve added them to getChurch.org, NotationMachine.com, and now here.
Ray Laqua sent me some links and explained the idea to me, and now I’m lovin’ it. I’m disappointed though, that more people don’t post. Feel free to say something here, even edit my ideas. This is an open forum.

Netscape?

Hi RJ,

People may be dismayed to find that I do not support Netscape, and have no plans to. I personally dislike Netscape and have decided that rather than do the extra work and work-arounds to make my site(s) compatible, I insist instead that everyone use the same browser.

Before I get hate mail, please understand that I know this is unreasonable, idealistic, naive, and a pain-in-the-ass. It’s just the choice I have made. Sorry to those users who prefer to hate Microsoft.

This Site

Hi Jason-

You asked for comments on this new site. It has great potential…you just need to make it work for Netscape 4x users. I really don’t care for the newer NS versions and especially don’t like I.E.(which I currently have fired up just to see more of this page than just the header area and left column of choices).

Also looking forward to having Crosswords back soon. It provides enjoyment to so many people that I sincerely hope you won’t abandon it. RJ

Latest Sites

I’m working on new web sites all the time, but forget to update my links list. Here’s the latest sites which should be added. (Eventually I’ll ditch the link list and just use this weBlog instead).

JohnTHarvey.com (and JohnHarvey.net, JohnHarvey.ca) is a site I’ve designed for a very good friend of mine who is a cosmetic eye laser surgeon. He’s also a terrific bass player. winking

I’ve just purchased four new domain names to add to my growing list: smartautoresponders.com,.net,.org, and .co.uk. And I got all four for $100! I anticipate this to be a really exciting step to draw more attention to my Auto FollowUp Autoresponder script. Keywords like autoresponder are HUGE.

ServiceBuilder and Intelliscript.net haven’t been added to the link list yet, but you’ve probably already heard of them since they’re anchored to from my home page.

AutoFollowup Bug Fix

I just repaired a bug in Auto FollowUp which was keeping it from sending all the emails in the list when the purge box was unchecked. If you own Auto FollowUp, get the latest version at Intelliscript.net.

Teams Pay for Scrabble?

What if the amount paid was in teams, so— if you pay $5 a month, then this applies to your team of players? You could have maybe up to 8, or 16 people per membership? Then people could take turns paying?
Please give me more feedback, as I don’t want to wreck the experience for all you faithful Crossword players. I do want to justify the added bandwidth and server space somehow… maybe people could make donations to my site via PayPal? ~Jason

Scrabble for a fee

Jason,

I understand a fee would help with space scrabble must take on the server. Honestly, as a Stay-At-Home Mom 5.00 a month (60 per year) is a bit steep for our budget.

I know you must do what you have to. I do enjoy the Scrabble game and appreciate the time that it has been free!

New Change To Crossword

Ok, I’ve finally added a feature to Crossword, and I think it’s about time. The lists of simultaneous games was getting so long that I decided to approach it differently. I removed the radio button selectors to choose games and instead made it a drop down box. Check it out here.

One other Thing

Something else: I created a feature in the post script which allows you to put a link on any page on your site with an action tag in it for responding to a page. So if you have a site with articles, put the link “Respond to this page” and allow users to interact with your document. It’s a neat way of multiplying community and interactivity on your site.
Try it out at getChurch.org.

AutoFollowup Is Changing

I’ve had a small breakthrough with AutoFollowUp, and I hope to release the latest version very soon. I’m embarrassed to admit that I didn’t realise a file became unlocked when it is closed. It makes sense now, but I never thought of it, and I didn’t want to leave a file open too long! Hopefully this will fix the problem someof you have been wondering about— namely people getting multiple copies of the same email on VERY heavily trafficked sites (we’re talking 10s of 1000s.) For the rest of us, the other bad thing that could happen is loss of data. (Sorry)

And in the same news, the script will soon have the ability to check any email account for subscription/unsubscription requests!

Blog Script

You like this blog script? I downloaded and installed a slightly modified version of Blosxom (don’t really like that name) and wrote my own posting script. Blosxom reads directories and sub-directories looking for text files, checks their date, sorts them by category (directories) and most recent date. It’s a small, very useful script— though a little obtuse in the traditional CGI perl script sense and therefore hard to modify.
When designing the posting script I wanted it to work seamlessly with Blosxom without having to change Blosxom, so that other Blosxom users could incorporate it into their sites. It works pretty well, with the only problem being when directory names have numbers in them. (This gets the date listing feature of Blosxom confused). I don’t think I’ll be able to work around that aside from outlawing number directories.

If you want the script, let me know. I think I’ll give it away for free.

How Favourites Works

In response to this page, my favourites folder is actually an exact real-time mirror of my own favourites folder on my pc! Whatever computer I use, whether at home, at work, or on the road, my favourites are not only accessable via the web, they can by synced automatically with all machines. So my laptop, my desktop at home, and my desktop at work all have the same favourites folders! Cool!
If you want to set up your system like this too, great! The script is only $10.00 and is used in combination with a free executable called ‘FavSync’. Send me a note and I’ll bring you up to speed and get you going.

Paid Version?

Ok, if I keep Scrabble, are you users willing to pay something to keep it going? Like say, $5.00 US a month?
