Interests Collage - My Razored Flesh — LiveJournal
Angels bleed from the tainted touch of my caress
Interests Collage
Well, you may have seen it around, and it's gone now. Well, here is the new version. It looks and feels the same, but there are major changes behind the scenes. The changes I made should not "overload" Yahoo's servers. However, there is a limit on how much the software can hit the Yahoo servers, and I know it will quickly reach the limit each day. BUT, Yahoo resets the limit every 24 hours. So, if it doesn't work, check back in 24.

I have also created different versions for several different journals. Here are the links:

Cool! I'm doing it right now. I was pissed I missed out on the other one. It takes a while on dial up. You're awesome! :)

WOW, dialup will be really slow. :( We'll see how long it lasts this time around. Last time Yahoo asked the guy to take it down, because of server load, I think because all the images actually came from Yahoo itself. I changed the code to use Yahoo to find the images but pull them from the individual sites. Should keep Yahoo off my back.

I think I'm going to have to do it from work tomorrow. My computer is being extra slow tonight. I for the live of me couldn't figure out why it keeps putting pictures of George Bush on my interests. *LOL* I checked to see what it was ...I have BUSH (the band) listed and it thinks I mean monkey boy. I will have to delete that one! Pretty funny picture it's pulling up for me.

lol. Yeah, it came up with some weird ones for me too, but fortunately you can click the image and change it. :)

I don't think it was about those images that Yahoo hosts. It was about the searches that were occurring.I think it's because the images get cached at ISPs and on other caches and they don't really care a lot about it. OTOH, the searches were making use of Yahoo's CPUs to work each time. The collage will load so much faster if you use Yahoo's thumbnails :)

I had to do some tweaking, and added some tracking capabilities, but hey, it's up and works. :)

You're getting the pics off of Yahoo Image Search? I just got a pic of a girl flashing at a football game...I guess that was based off of my football interest. :P But I'd rather not have porn popping up - any way to filter that? And yes, I know I can change the image.

I looked into this, and the default is to already have the SafeSearch on. I too, noticed some inappropriate images came up. Just to test it, I changed my test copy to turn off SafeSearch, and well, I must say, the SafeSearch is working, but nowhere as good as one would expect.
