1.05 and UpdateFact200

Thu, 08 Nov 2007 02:29:13 +0000

Fact200 still remains largely in maintenance mode as there are other more pressing projects higher up in the priority list these days. For the most part this update consists of updates to the parsing code used to gather results from google and yahoo. Updated Google/Yahoo Sources One of the principles of Fact200 is to appear […]

At long last, the 1.0 version has been released! In true “web 2.0” fashion, there isn’t much difference between the release and the betas. In fact, only a day after releasing 1.0 I found a few bugs. Its amazing how the bugs always show up after the testing cycle. For the most part, the major […]

Been a while since the last post. Fact200 continues forward in development. The last release (1.0b15) mostly saw some bug fixes and convergences towards standards support and integration. Integration mainly comes in the form of using RSS for import/export as well as supporting fact200 specific extensions to preserve sources and to allow anyone to show […]

Yahoo released their Internet time capsule today. It’s an interesting property of the Internet that just about anything accessible by a searchbot can be considered as part of permanent web history. I would guess that even pages marked as ‘no-cache’ are still being crawled and saved by ‘bots posing as IE or Firefox. So it […]

Wow, actual applications?Fact200

As the author, I guess it shouldn’t amount to a huge surprise that I actually found a real life, honest to goodness use for Fact200. One that would have been extremely difficult if not nearly impossible to do without. Arriving as a dutiful employee, I arrived at work to check my e-mail. Only there wasn’t […]

After reading The Design of Everyday Things (DOET) by usability guru Don Norman, this version reflects some surprising and radical changes. Contrary to modern design fads (spearheaded by spartan Google UI), the Fact200 UI has become slightly more complex. On his site, Mr. Norman has a short critique of Google’s interface that states why he […]

There’s a bug I discovered a couple days ago where the Minibrowser sometimes displays the wrong URL and will jump to the wrong url if the external browser action is invoked (either by clicking the button in the Find pane or by clicking return in the Minibrowser). This is caused by frame URLs invoking the […]

1.0b12 Released!Fact200

Tue, 19 Sep 2006 18:33:17 +0000

Following my semi-normal 2 week cycle, 1.0b12 has been released featuring mostly bug fixes. The major bug fix in this release is to Google Groups which changed their search result format thus causing Fact200 to return no results. Google has also changed the output of their Sponsored Listings which is why they don’t show up, […]
