comment StackTack, a JavaScript widget you can stick anywhere
I had to revert the api version to 0.8 for now since the 1.0 hosting seems unstable. The update should propagate in about 24 hours over S3.

StackTack now targets version 1.0 of the stack API, in compliance with the rules. All seems well so both the normal and minified versions of the javascript should be propagated across S3 in 24 hours.

@Oscar, me too! That would really make it worth the effort.

Ah true, the paging would certainly replicate most of this functionality. There's still a high degree of repeatability this way, requiring a few pages of results to be called if I wanted a more random set.

Answers are now explicitly requested in the ajax call as per the changes made in this ticket stackapps.com/questions/613/… The changes should propagate across S3 in roughly 24 hours.

It would be unlikly to break the 10K limit as this is all happening from the client's browser in Javascript using Ajax, not a central server. This means each request a visitor is making requests from their own IP. If one user were to refresh the page 10,000 times in a day, then they might hit the limit.

comment SAggregator - A way to accumulate all the latest activity from the StackApps API sites
Great job. I really dig how you integrated the copy-paste box in the dialog. I've added a link to SAggregator in my description.

Thanks to Farseeker for integrating StackTack into his SAggregator app, I've added a link to it in the description.

comment Finding a user given their (exact) display name
Wouldn't it be better to identify them using their openID that they'd already have on Stack sites anyways? That way you also don't have to write your own authentication system.

Please let me know if anybody actually implements this on their site or blog. I'm interested to see it in the wild. Also, the S3 mirrors are still propagating so the jquery.stacktack.min.js may still pull the wrong stylesheets for another day or so.
