Remove the search from the website. Is that not clear enough? Should I make a change?

comment AND searching for tags?
But you can't filter out questions that contain certain tags when searching using the question api call. I am also looking for flexibility, the ideal would be able to turn the search from an OR to and AND with an optional flag.

comment Eligibility for the competition?
Ah it seems that the app tab has a maximum number of questions, sorted by votes. So there must be lots of apps on 5 votes. Thankfully I now have 6 votes and I am on the list. Yay!

comment Intermittent bug in the /search route when providing both tagged and nottagged parameters.
Still no official answer on this one? Seems quite important to me!

1) Currently it is in GMT+1. I am looking at changing this to the users timezone or make the timezone pickable. Still mulling that over. 2) You can use spaces, commas or semi-colons to separate tags, but choose one don't mix and match. 3) The rate limit of 10,000 a day is very high so I don't think I will be hitting it soon. Jeff has said that it isn't a maximum just a limit and to email if people hit it, so we will cross that bridge when we get to it. (If you like it an up vote would be great so I can be eligible for the competition, need about 6/7 votes :( )

@matt I think that is old stuff. They rule of thumb now is to look on the docs for each of the methods you are using. The rate limit is listed on there. I am using the update method via oAuth for sending the messages and according to the docs there is no limit. dev.twitter.com/doc/post/statuses/update

There is no limit for post requests on twitter only get. I don't do any get requests as I don't look at anything. If I hit the rate limit on bit.ly then I'll create my own shortener. If I hit the rate limit on SO then I'll have a winning product and Jeff and his team will hopefully look kindly on me.

Also is it not a unix timestamp rather than a date?

comment Best way of structuring a library?
From the small example it seems that this is in the single parent class setup? StackOverflowClient controls everything and you call methods on that?

comment Best way of structuring a library?
Oh god. I really need to get my head around Objective-C and those square brackets. I am sure it is what I am looking for but it will take me a little while to get my head around objective-c and then how you structure stuff.
