Some minor changes

Since someone actually had enough to say, they hit the cap on the comment sizes. Actually, there was no cap on the comment size, just on the filter, so I bumped it up to 20x its previous size, so now excessively longwinded comments will make it, in their entirety.
Added a new entry to the manifest page. Got a major bug with Jeeves fixed (I think). If no new problems crop up over the next couple days, I'll see about implementing the new data storage mechanism and start eliminating the old buggy one.
More google snacks.

I'll be housesitting again this week, so I'll be around less often than usual, although I'll still be available for chatting, so fear not. :)
And more google refs:

The root nameservers have finally updated my dns entries so I'm fully functional again with the domain. Yay. Its annoying thinking that hundreds of people think my site is down. Especially when its really not. :)
And more referrer tidbits :)

More google searches and domain info
First off, a slight glitch with the domain might have caused a few problems. Some of you might not have noticed at all, but by tomorrow it should be resolved. Life will go on.
I have a working theory that if I get the reverse names registered with my isp then the cookies will once again function properly. Just a theory mind you, nothing to bet the farm on yet.
Now for more fun referral tidbits :)

That's from the last two days. I'll try to update more often on funny referrer log entries.

Since obtaining the domain name and adapting a theme for the site around it, the popularity of the site has increased substantially. More sites are linking to me, more people keep coming back. This is wonderful news.
However, there is a downside. The trolls have come out of the woodwork in force. Of course, there have always been the occasional troll. Rude people, morons, kids with way too much free time on their hands and a serious malicious streak. They've always been out there, but they usually show up one at a time, be annoying for a little while, then leave, never to return.
Now, however, they come back too. And when more than a few of them show up at the same time, things start to get ugly. I can stand it. People have said everything in the world to me, and verbal abuse predates the internet. But these trolls aren't only annoying me. They're annoying my other guests. And at some point I'm going to feel compelled to stop them. Of course, there's a good chance that once school starts again, most of these people will disappear. I've already got automated protection for those who get clever and decide to script attack the website. If necessary I'll add a moderation system for the comments and captures. I hate to go to these extremes, but I see what the other large forums have to put up with. Its sad that its required at all, but it seems that the perceived anonymous nature of the internet has given some people the impression that they can be moronic assholes to everyone.

That's right. I've been listed on the geek of the week page at CFOX Radio in Vancouver. They first covered my site a month ago, at which Karen (I think she's the traffic gal) made a wisecrack referring to my site as drive me insane dot com. Well, I thought it was a perfectly spiffy name, so I adopted it as my domain and even styled the site after it.
Apparently they noticed, because they decided to feature it again, based on my domain adoption. :)
The sprinkler is still working and I've got most of the kinks ironed out of that. You can now see how much time is left for the day by hovering the cursor over the sprinkler icon.
I've added a new feature. Every time the page is loaded a current insanity level value is computed and displayed. This value attempts to determine how insane I currently am based on how often people are playing with my lights. It still needs some tweaking.

My front yard won't be as parched and ugly anymore. Now it will get watered. I have a lawn sprinkler out there that's internet controlled now. However, it won't be as fun as the lights for now. First off, you can barely see it from the front door. Secondly, there is a 15 minute daily time limit, and individual requests only last 30 seconds. Also, I will be disassembling it at least once to add some sealant to prevent the leaks I have now. If this works out well, I'll add a couple more sprinklers. Another in the front and one in the back. The next project is to get a rotor so people can aim the sprinkler at .. um... targets. :)
