Blog Protection

This might be helpful for those of you that type an entry and then accidentally refresh the page or click the back button before publishing. The site will now prompt you to make sure you want to leave.

The restore backup system is also still there, this is just an extra safeguard. You can test it by typing something in the blog publish box and then hitting the refresh button before publishing.

Bye, Bye Africa

Call me continentalist but I refuse to deal with spam from abroad getting in my estrip message box. I was going to just block just the one ip and then I figured why not just senegal then why not just most of the continent. I mean seriously Good Day Sir to you too.

I had previously blocked Germany, France, China, Indonesia, and Russia for the same reasons. Usually, the spammers just give up eventually.

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.


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


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


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.

  • 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
