I wear many hats at my workplace.

Primarily a Database Developer, but also programmer, web designer, DBA, sysadmin, and general office bitch.

I work for a small custom software house in Sydney, Australia. We use all manner of tools - but mainly MSSQL and a Rapid Application Tool called eDeveloper uniPaaS Magic XPA.

@DannyBeckett - unfortunately that site runs on a really, really old version of the API which is soon going to be discontinued and hasn't had any new sites added for a long time. Sometime in the next month or two I will try to upgrade it.

comment Shit SE Says - Stack Exchange chat stars out of context
The thought had crossed my mind - but I haven't done any work on this since 14th December 2012 (i.e. the day I published it here). If I find myself with nothing to do one night I might throw some more features in.

@Jop - honestly, it's because I have no interest in maintaining it or updating it, so I may as well let it free into the world so people can do as they wish with it.

comment RebolBot - a chat bot for the chat rooms
It's not going to start spewing Bible quotes or run trivia games is it? Please no... the humanity! Bring on the singularity before another chat bot trivia game... (but on a serious note, impressive)

Honestly, I hardly remember how this little app works. It might be time for a refresh. The cookies were from memory from an earlier revision that must not have been taken out.

comment Deprecating API V1.x
@KevinMontrose - I only just saw this now, mainly because I don't come by here much any more. An email or something would have been nice. It's not that big of a deal, but I definitely want my Column 80 app to work on the new sites

@ObsessiveFOSS - glad I could be of assistance. I haven't touched the v2 API yet (figured there wasn't anything of value for this app to be added, plus their online authentication isn't text mode friendly). But if it ever becomes read-write I will update it :)

@hhh - you can bypass the warning message, there's a link that says "I'm not going to stop you" - or, use this URL: column80.com/index.php?continue=y

@hhh - no. The API does not expose these methods, not even the v2.0 API.

@Rory - the app was fairly simple, it shouldn't have needed any maintenance but there was a cron job that used to run every few hours to update the stats. Looks like when my web host migrated me to a different server they didn't move the cron jobs. You're the first person to mention it in almost 5 months, so I'm guessing not many people use it ;) I'll see if I can fix it now.

@muntoo - if you read the description, it's not about being addicted, it's about being stuck in a console session with no other options and you still need to get access to Server Fault.

@Simon - unfortunately I had to change the system to run on cookies, so once the cookies have expired you'll need to go back to column80.com and start again

@Simon - thanks. One of the MySQL databases went over its size quota, should all work now.

comment Roadmap - any update?
Apps and wrappers have had no publicity or support from the SE team - well, there has been publicity for the API in the form of sidebar ads...

@Brian - I try to. My life is hectic busy with a 5-month old son, a 50-hour-a-week job (+OT) and I'm trying to start my own business at the same time so spare time is hard to come by these days. You've caught me at a time when I have a few mins so I'll look into it right now.

comment Application marketing ideas
Ugh, I hate in-app advertising. I'd rather pay $.99, or even $2. That said, I'm not sure how this applies in any way to what Adam was asking...
