Cookies Forever

I thought of something yesterday when I decided to clear out my cookies and temporary internet files. When you clear out your cookies, all the information saved by codes goes bye bye, including all the statistics saved by non-php RPG hacks and other codes you have to work for to get the information you do! So, I sat there thinking through all the alternatives to "temporary cookies". The most sensefull of them was to have a text file on your machine where a program can save important cookie information and restore it every time you delete your cookies. The hard part shouldnt be getting the actual program made, but getting IF users to actually download and set it up on their computers.

Also for those of you interested in progress of Warn Logger, its almost done. Now that all my side projects are done, I can get back to mainstream coding for IF. :)

New: JS++

While working on someones IF board, I realized how cool it would be if you could allow your advanced members to create their own JavaScript codes to run client-side everytime they visit the board!

I think it would be a pretty simple code structure. This project will become a reality after my other codes, such as Reply-Blocker update and Warn Logger, are completed. JS++ will exist in the User CP as a page containing a textbox for data entry. When the code in the textbox is submitted, a cookie will be created containing the data. Each page loaded past that point will have the cookie data appended to it. Since the inputted code will only affect the member who typed it up, there shouldnt be very many problems.

Thinking through the various functions and methods in JavaScript, I couldnt think of anything that would have to be restricted in this code. If you know of any variables, methods, functions, or other things that might cause a security or code flow problem please let me know by becoming a member of the UCO board and posting a reply to this topic. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Other Programs

Ive started work on a collection of Habbo-related programs called Stalk Utilities. Most of the tools are done and are working correctly. The tools will be downloadable from Myishi Chat Center when the project is totally completed.

Also, Im getting to work on a program that allows you to read through emails from without having to know how to read HTML or XML. More on this program will be posted later.

As for Warn Logger, the code is starting to finally take form. Expect to see it sometime in October.

A week or two back, I switched hosts for my codes. This was because my old host, geocities, had decided to kill my bandwidth. Even to today they havent given me more! So, I decided if they were going to be that stubborn I would just move to a different host. After moving all my public codes to webpost, a friend told me how their hosting is terrifically crap.

Now, Im looking for a better, more reliable host. I think Im just going to buy a site and move my devlog, programs, forum, codes, and all my other web content to it. But, we'll see! I really dont want to get a new host right after switching around. I might lose users that way.

In other news, today I took up a challenge from my computer instructor. He said that if I could create a FPS game with network capabilities and auto-patchwork systems, I would never have to do any work again all year. I can easily do it. That I have no doubt of. But Im concerned about how long it will take. Im guessing...about 3 weeks. If he looses interest or forgets about the challenge after Im done, I might be up a toilet without a crap! :(

New Features

The smiley code is done now. When the page is done loading, all textual smilies will be turned into graphic smilies. Along with this feature is a new logo at the top of the page next to the title and description. Also, Ive added a list of smilies on the sidebar to show what the smilies look like before and after. As I add new smilies to the list, they will be added to the code as well. ;)

Update: Warn Logger

Ive been working with iFusion to get all the bugs worked out of Warn Logger. So far, we havent been able to get it working the way it should be. Today I decided to install some debug alerts to help me figure out where the problems are occurring. The results were pretty surprising. It turns out one of the biggest problems was the fact that the code wasnt being run when the page loads! Im not sure how to fix this or even why it is doing this but hopefully after that problem is out of the way the rest will be easy to fix.

Some Things

Im starting on a smiley code for this blog so all textual smilies will be automatically changed to graphical smilies when the page loads. But, dont expect it to be done until Warn Logger v1 is completed.

Arg! I just found out another one of my hosts killed my account. Thats the second one this month! So far, geocities seems to be the most reliable host that I have ever used. If you are hosted by a site that lets you use PHP and gives you a MySQL database for free, please comment on this blog.

Ive also shut down my old devlog on MCC and sent all the readers of it to this blog. So, welcome everybody!

Update: Warn Logger

Im almost done with Warn Logger. I ran into some compatibility problems which led me to change around some things in the flow document. The updated version has been put in the file.

Warn Logger

Alrighty then! Lets get this blog/devlog started!

I have a bunch of codes just sitting in my WIP folder. Ive decided to just stop working on all of them at the same time and focus on a request I got about two weeks ago (found here). Speaking of which, I was working on it yesterday when I hit a snag with the mechanics of it. So I decided to throw the entire code out the window and totally recode it.

I typed up a quick flow document and PHP form value chart to keep my ideas on the dot during the whole project. Both can be found in this zip file. In the href spreadsheet you can change the values in the generator table to show different data in the variable table. (That comes courtesy of a computer class I took last year ;))

Ill be typing up progress on this project as I work on it.

Hiya! My name is Blake and this here is my new programming blog! This will serve as my own little code publication system and Devlog. As I continue to code and advance in computer programming Ill add posts here to let you follow my work.

Like I said, this blog is pretty new. So please stick around while I fix the place up a bit. ^_^
