Interests Collage Improved!
Updated the Interests Collage to allow users to move thier mouse over the image to see what interest is associated with it. Really helps elliminate the, 'WTF? Where did that image come from?' factor. ;)

I saw this through ladybelz's journal and did it but now it won't let me go back. Is there a reason for that?

Hello there, no there are no restrictions on how many times you go in. I checked to make sure the site was still up and there were no problems. Please try again and let me know.

Hey there. I really like the program. I come bearing a bug report.

If a user has an interest for which no picture can be found, no image is produced. That's as you'd expect. But the text of that interest gets set as a title on the next picture, and so it continues one place out of step on to the end. I have five or six such interests, so it's a whole line out of step by the last picture for me.

Thank you for letting me know, we'll work that into the script when we re-release the Image tags. Currently we had to take the down.

You are quite welcome.

Yup. It's cute, Ed. My friends like it, even if it *is* horribly dementedly borked. :)
darkman424 From: darkman424 Date: September 7th, 2006 09:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
It's a messed up hodgepodge of code right now, needs a good cleanup, but I'm not worrying about that until the bugs are worked out. glad your friends like it.

one thing I've noticed is that for whatever reason, yahoo is pulling up ALOT of NSFW images for fairly inocuos intrests.. It might be nice to have a "family friendly" version ala google's "SafeSearch" functionality...
dragonbane From: dragonbane Date: September 7th, 2006 04:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
I assumed that was deliberate, considering the source...

happy belated birthday!
wanted to thank you for re-doing the interests thing.
hope you don't mind that i friended you.
darkman424 From: darkman424 Date: September 8th, 2006 01:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you! No problem. I couldn't let a cool thing like the collage to end.

Don't mind at all. Friended you back.

> If you don't want any picture at all for a particular interest,
> Ctrl-click it

This command works with SeaMonkey (version 1.0.4), but not with Opera (the most recent version for Windows, 9.01). Haven't tried it with other browsers, but thought you'd want to know about these.

Also, adding you to my Friend-list. If after looking at my journal you wish to reciprocate, cool. If not, I understand, no problem.

Thank you for letting me know. Crossbrowser code writing is such a pain these days. I will look into what I need to do to get it to wrok with Opera, I know it's one of the popular browsers out there.

So far, I have only written the app to be compatible with Firefox 1.5 Windows, and IE 6 Windows.

I added you back.

I'm not sure if you selected it randomly, but I think it's awesome that one of the "Body For Life" pictures you chose was of my good friend Cheryl Muhr.

That rocks.

Actually Yahoo Image Search supplies all the pictures.

want to thank you all for the LJ Interests Collage.
see it on a lot of pages now.


The box said "Requires Windows 95 or better."
So I installed LINUX

Re: thanks

You are quite welcome.

I just wanted to thank you for hosting this. I didn't get to the page last time in time to do it before the hosting was discontinued. It's a silly, simple pleasure, but I thank you for it! :D

You are quite welcome. :)

Your LJ is really funny and original. I am going to add you, I would love if you added me to. Im just a 23 year old girl from WA state

Thank you. I don't try to be funny or original, I guess it's just how my brain works. :) I friended you back. I noticed we had a few of the same interests. At least some important ones to me anyway. So welcome to my world. :)

Thank You!

I saw the interests meme when it first came out and crashed that guys service provider...I'm so glad you did this! I gave a bit through PayPal...I know it's not much but I really DO appreciate what you've done so I wanted to vote with my dollars - I hope every one does the same!

BTW, I noticed a preponderance of risque photos came up - is that just me? (LOL!!)

Re: Thank You!

Anything is appreciated. :) Thank you! Actually, it was not an issue of crashing his service provider, it was an issue of Yahoo complaining that the collage script used too much Yahoo bandwidth. It was actually overloading Yahoo's servers. Right now, it's a matter of time until Yahoo complains to me. I am still taking steps to try to take some of the load off Yahoo servers. Either way, I won't let them shut it down.

Thank you for the lovely program! I had a blast.
I think it's interesting someone said they got a lot of not work safe images. I'd complain about the reverse. Ethical Slut and Nympho Librarian didn't bring up results, but in Google, they both brought up what I meant immediately, and in multiple!
I don't think there's a problem with Yahoo being too naughty---
darkman424 From: darkman424 Date: September 13th, 2006 03:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
I am actually planning on the changing the code to allow users to turn off the SafeSearch. I just need to sit down and do the change.
obselizabeth From: obselizabeth Date: September 13th, 2006 08:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
it's not working!
darkman424 From: darkman424 Date: September 14th, 2006 03:05 am (UTC) (Link)
That's strange. It worked for you before.
