Site upgraded

I've just finished upgrading the site. A number of new features where installed.

1. Plain Text and Rich Text cl1ps have a status indicator which shows a cl1ps editable status.
  • Editable - You may edit this cl1p
  • Editing - You are editing this cl1p.
  • Read only - Someone else is editing this cl1p.

If you try to modify a cl1p that someone else is editing you will get a message. 'Failed to get lock on the cl1p.' In this case you need to wait until the status changes to editable. Once the cl1p is editable the content will update automatically to the latest value.

2. New Rich Text Editor

3. UI Improvements, all options except for keep for have been moved into an options popup.

4. E-mail retrieval for lost cl1p passwords.

5. Improved admin

Message Board and SSL

I've added some new features to cl1p:

First up is Message Board. You can now turn an cl1p into a message board. Just select message board in the cl1p type drop down menu.

  1. You can set the title of the message board by entering a new title under options.
  2. You can restrict forum management by setting a password under security. People can still add comments to the board, but you need the password to delete them.

Next is SSL. You can now purchase SSL cl1ps. These cl1ps have the same feature as standard cl1ps, with the addition of an secure SSL connection.

Eve Online - As a workout

Like many computer programmers I sit at a desk all day. My diet is ok, (No fast food, lots of home made feasts, thanks to my wife) but working out is always a problem.

My biggest problem with working out is that it is boring. Going through the same motions of exercise, over and over. I can't stand it. All I can think about is how silly the whole process is. I need a distraction. I've tried watching TV, and reading but I find that these are too distracting, or boring.

But then I brought my laptop up and put it beside the exercise bike, and played eve online as I worked the bike, did push ups, sit ups and free weights. An entire hour of workout can go by without me hardly noticing. Normally I can't stand more then 20 minutes.

This is because Eve online only requires input from you once in a while. Most of the time is spent moving from place to place. With the auto pilot handling the details. So it simple to set the autopilot, then do some push ups. Get back on the bike, do some mining, sell the ore, do some sit ups, etc. It's the perfect distraction.

It works great! I've just started my new eve online workout. I'll let you know how it works out long term.

Adsense, not making sense

I just found out something really interesting. makes about the same in cpm as a top 50 blog. (I made $1.37cpm last year, he made $1.39cpm) This is really interesting, because I always thought that adsense works way better on blogs then it does on tool sites.

But this must be wrong. We both target a tech audience, perhaps the audience matters more then the content of the site?

A programmers start page

You can use as a start page for programmers. As a web application developer I have to access a lot of machines in the office. Most of them are by IP and some have long cumbersome names. I also have to access the web apps that I'm working on from different browsers.

My solution was to use to make a simple HTML start page. You can see it here.

Create your own, just follow these steps.

1. Pick a URL that starts with ( i picked )

2. In the Textarea write the HTML. I just use a simple table and links, but you could use any HTML you wanted.

3. Add a password, change the keep for to something longer then a week and Click save, you will see a message saying (Page was saved).

4. In the top right hand corner you see a link Click on that link to see the rendered HTML.

5. What happened here is that you are now looking at This will only show you the raw data, and since its HTML we see an HTML page.

6. Set as the homepage.

Bam! There you go. A programmers start page.

New years eve, the time critical holiday

As a time critical guy I'm always worried about what time it is, and how am I doing according to the schedule in my head. I always want to be on time. I hate being late.

For everyday of the year I keep my obsession under wraps. It's not polite to be looking at your watch all the time.

But for one day, I let it fly. New years eve is when for once, everyone is concerned about the time.

And its great.

Happy new year!
