Today I launched a new behind the scenes update to the Grand Exchange Updater. I set up a new price updater that works MUCH faster! I used ParallelCurl by Pete Warden to get all the data in Parallel instead linearly. Previously, the updater was very slow, took in upwards of an hour sometimes, and often crashed. Now, the new updater takes under a minute.
There were a few bugs, as expected, with today’s update which resulted in several repeat notifications. I do apologize for that, but it is now fixed.
I found this on the Nerdist blog which came from Online Dating University. It is a very nicely done infographic of all of the Doctor’s companions. Amazing work, also SPOILER ALERT!@!@!@!@!@!@!@!@!@!@! If you haven’t seen the latest episode of Series 6: “A Good Man Goes to War” DO NOT look at the very bottom in the “Interesting Companions” section. View the full Infographic
My host, 1&1, claims to allow gzip compression through Apache. However, when I try to set it up along with etags and expires it doesn’t seem to work. I devised this fancy script to add cache-control and etag headers to js, css, and xml files. View the PHP script
Today I am announcing the new GE Updater site. The GE Updater now has its separate Web site http://geupdater.com which focuses completely on RuneScape and the updater. The new site should be much easier to navigate and find items.
In addition to all of the old features I have added a few new features to help your merchanting or whatever you may use the service for. Read the details on the new features.
I was in the mood to check out the classic Doctor Who I’ve been hearing so much about. I’m a big fan of the current series, but I really wanted to watch the classic Dr. Who so I could get some of the references and whatnot.
So, I decided to fill my entire Netflix Queue with classic Doctor Who DVDs The only bad news is some of the episodes are missing or not on Netflix yet, especially for the first couple of doctors. Once you get to the Third Doctor they are pretty much all there.
When I was compiling my list I really wish someone one had done what I am about to do, but lucky for you, no wishing Past the break is a lovely list, with links, to all the Doctor Who DVDs on Netflix in serial order of when they aired. I’ll try to keep it up-to-date and whatnot, may slack off a bit though. See the full list
