Estrip Android App Location Update

The android app now also has a location button you can click to add your current location to the blog you are posting with it. I need to test with it some more, but I pushed the update out so you guys can test with it too if you want.

That and it allows you to move the app to the sdcard if you are running froyo.

You can hit the button multiple times to add new locations to one entry. Say for example on a walk.

Even better with android, you can use the default maps, navigation or lattitude app and share any place with your blog using the built in "share this place" mechanism. This copies more data including the place contact info and name.

I added a location publisher for estrip

When logged into the mobl site, there is a new location button. If you click it, and are using a mobile phone that supplies location data, it will go ahead and load your location into a blog and let you type the title to publish.

image

You can also just click the location button on the regular mobl publisher

image

And from the non mobile site publisher for those using it on mobile devices or devices with accurate geolocation like a netbook or ipad.

image

Unlike facebook, everything on estrip is public so think about that before you publish something you don't want people to know about.

I'll make it do some fancier stuff when I have some more free time. I wanted to do this for years but everyone always thought it was so creepy. Now its practically mundane.

I thought if you collected it all you could start forecasting social occurances like weather. e.g. there is a 40% chance of someone from your social group eating at panos next tuesday, etc. I am sure the folks at facebook and foursquare are already developing that. It must be nice to have so much data to mine.

upload now accepts .jpeg files

I made it so the multifile upload now accepts .jpeg files as facebook seems to stupidly export pictures from their galleries with that extension. You can also upload 20 files at time now.

estrip.com is finally ours

After years of trying to get ownership of it. We now own estrip.com. No more worries about it turning into a porn site. It cost a good chunk of change but I think in the long run it was worth protecting our assets by owning the .com.

For now estrip.com just redirects to estrip.org. I think it will probably stay that way as I am not going to reprint the bumpster magnets and seeing as we are non commercial it makes more sense.

The most creative story about it was when (e:twisted) wrote to the former owner - who we will never mention again by name or company as part of the purchase contract - to say her name was Ester Stripinopolous and that she was looking to purchase the domain back in like 2004 or 2005.

Much Better Mobile Site

I really revamped the mobile site to work well on both the iphone 3g (iOS) and nexus one (android). If you get a chance try it out, should be much easier to manipulate with fingers than it was before. Sadly, the lame iphone cannot upload in the browser like the android phone I am posting this from.

Estrip 8 - now live

This is my first test post from estrip8. I am sure there are a ton of issues seeing as I programmed it piecemeal over the last 6 years about 2 hours a week and have scrapped and restarted over a bunch of times. It does not necessarily represent a lot of new features, but rather brings it up to date with my surebert framework so that I can more easily add new features and fixes in the future. Hope you enjoy it.

Sorry about the lack of themes. I will create them shortly. I have some already in production.

Android Application Update

You can now simply select estrip share from any menu that supports text sharing including the link sharing in the browser and other apps such as engadget. If you see their is an update for the estrip app, just update. If however, you do not see an update, please delete and download from the marketplace. I lost my private key last week and had to restart a new app in the marketplace, although it has the same name.

The island and the vote? anonoman

Up until this point I have never deleted anyone because of anything other than posting commercial content, which I never hesitate to do. I am fine with deleting this guy because his postings are harassing which is against the TOS. However, I fear if you guys determine that you want to delete people based on a group vote mentality that everyone will get deleted at some point. I can guarantee at one time or another I have heard from just about every single person how they are so angry about what some other person posted and yet we all made it through because I don't delete people based on content.

This person is different based on the fact that they are not really a member of the community but more like a harasser, so go ahead and post your feelings here about it.

What makes it all so weird is that (e:theli) has not complained about it but maybe he is embarrassed? I have no idea.
