New Google Video Feature

In honour of (e:kara)'s comment on my journal about the wii, I have added a new gvideo tag to your tag options in the journal entry box.

It works just like the youtube tag with the id of the video in the tag and makes a google video player. Here is the funny playstation 3 vs nintendo wii video. e.g.

Many Site Updates

Multiple file tracked uploads
I have created a multi file upload system for users with flash 8. If you have flash 8 you should see the new "NEW: select multiple media files to upload button" at the bottom of your journal instead of the old button.

If not your should see the old system. The new system lets you upload multiple files at once, and also reports the progress of the uploads without leaving page. It then puts the ocde in the journal and provides thumbnails.

Test it and see how it goes. Please upgrade to flash player 8 or greater if you do not have it.

Editor fix
I fixed the bug where the style buttons were not working on text in the first sentence of your journal entry. The tags used to get stuck at the beginning of the journal entry ifthe text you selected before clicking one of the style button was at the beginning of your journal.

Editor New Feature
Youtube support. Added a youtube button in the stylebox. You can copy the id from any youtube video into your journal, select it and hit the youtube button to have it display youtube videos on your journal. The id of a youtube video can be found in the url of the video when you visit it. It is the last bit of data after v= in the URL.


Logged in userpic bug fix
I fixed the bug where userpics were not going away when users were logging out. Thing is i had spelled remove as "renove" sometimes spelling means a lot.

Upgraded to surebert 2.10
This means I had to go through tons of javascript and update it. In the future it means upgrades will be easier and new features and just waiting to happen.

Estrip's file sharing service known as Gather now works with safari. I updated the look and functionality of it. You now have post-its that represent all the files you have uploaded which have not expired.


I will probably be adding file upload progress this weekend.

Estrip - You can now upload up to 7000k (~7MB) when uploading flv or mp4 formatted video files. I posted instructions for posting actual video files or a video player for videos hosted on youtube on the computer journal (e:computer,43)

Comment Problem Solved

Well one good thing came out of this (e:ladycroft) and (e:matthew) drama. I figured one of the stupid comment bugs that was forcing the comments to not show up in the right order sometimes! Finally. Okay truth is I never looked into it until now but (e:matthew) just called to say that his latest comment was not showing up on (e:ladycrofts,335) and I looked into it.

I was that the comments were not explicitly set to order in a certain order and SQL knows no order other than the one specified. Usually it was fine but ocassionally it would provide them in some random order. Silly oversight but it is fixed now so rest assured your comments will show up in the proper order.

It's been a while. I would like to rewrite everything and add a million features at least to take advantage of the new surebert but I have been so busy.

I fixed the bug that arrised from surebert 1.45 that caused the (show more) to not work today. I also fixed the bug that prevented users from uploading a usersound on IE.

16,000 Journal Entries

Today we reached our 16,000th journal entry. Thank you to everyone who has been a part of this project and shared a part of their life with the fabric which makes up the digital quilt that is I am defending my thesis about it today and then it's over I am pulling the plug and moving on to bigger and better things in cooler cities. Just kidding.

(e:theecarey) and I have a bunch of plans in store to expand estrip further and my committment to Buffalo is pretty permanent since I just bought a house in the middle of the city.

  • Linnie 10/17 06:57 Hi Neighbors - I just bought a groovy renovated carriage house on Linwood Ave, and I'm so excited to live in our wonderful city! The large house in front of the carriage house burned down in the 70's. An article I found about the property cited that 'Matthew' on this site had posted a series of photos called 'Lost Linwood" (article was from 2012). I thought maybe Matthew was still on this site or perhaps someone could help me find the photos. I'd love to see the original house and carriage house
