14-10

It fealt really good to see this...to actually be able to watch (most of) the game. In the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, the University of Florida Gators defeated the University of Georgia Bulldogs, 14-10.

I can't say I liked the uniforms all that much, though.

Another Neat Trick or Hack

no...not Halloween

NOTE... If you are using PivotX version 2.2.6 or later, this hack is now easier than ever to use, because it is now an extension (that works only with PivotX version 2.2.6 or later). In fact, the results you see in the comments below are now being handled by the extension. You can get more information on it here.

NOTE... As this can now be found in extension format, the hack will no longer be updated or supported.

I have hacked another part of pivot. This time, when you comment to any of these entries, you send your browser's useragent information along with your comment. This information tells whatever site you're visiting what OS you're using, what version of an OS, what web browser you're using, what version that browser is, and any add-ons to either the OS or browser.

So, I then take that information and parse it so that when you comment, two little icons appear next to your name showing your OS and browser. Try it out!

  • The Pivot Forums: that link is to a topic regarding this hack for Pivot 1.x. It includes a how-to.
  • The PivotX Forums: coming soon, a link to a topic regarding this hack for PivotX 2.x. In that topic is included a how-to.
  • useragent.tar.gz: this file contains everything you need to make the changes to your Pivot 1.x blog, including images, a file with some php codes, and a step-by-step set of instructions for implementing this hack. It is actually quite easy to do.
  • useragentx.tar.gz: this file contains everything you need to make the changes to your PivotX 2.x blog, including images, a file with some php codes, and a step-by-step set of instructions for implementing this hack. It is very easy to do (easier than for Pivot 1.x).
  • This is a list of supported OSes and browsers. If you don't see yours on there, drop me a line (just like it says on that page).

Why is the Page Loading so Slow?

The short answer is that I'm working on something. That thing that I'm working on doesn't exactly run quickly, though I'm searching for ways to speed it up. Also, I'm showing it off to other users of this blogging 'ware, should they be interested in its functionality or even if they have a way to improve it.

If you're wondering what exactly I'm talking about, read on. If what I have said thus far—I'm experimenting with something—is a good enough answer for the question, then read on only if you want more info.

There's Something Happenin' Here

And I don't mean to make any allusion to the Buffalo Springfield song...

MS11 must have moved stuff to another server (that's all I can think that it was) because certain files that are supposed to be writable were not, so entries I was making weren't being written to the main file, but they are now.

I've fixed the error at Mrs. Wagner's Neighborhood, too.
