Feedwhip suffered from stability issues the past few weeks, but I think I’ve got them straightened out. Enjoy.(image)

Still Herefeedwhip

Mon, 18 Feb 2008 06:33:59 +0000

Holy moly, I just pushed out an update to Feedwhip. It’s certainly been a while. Feedwhip has been pretty much running itself for the past six months while I focus my energies on other exciting projects (like Picnik and my two-year-old daughter). But I had some time and inspiration today so I cranked up the […](image)

New email delivery optionsfeedwhip

You can now specify one of four different kinds of emails for your Feedwhip notifications. They are: Just an alert. The subject tells you the name of the feed that changed, and the email body contains just a link to the Feedwhip page with all the changes. This email format is perfect for sending as […](image)

More PHP headachesfeedwhip

Sat, 18 Aug 2007 20:19:09 +0000

Walkers were randomly dying on some specific feeds. After wandering around with things for a bit, I noticed that the HTML for those feeds had some really, really stupid nested tags — hundreds and hundreds of nested tags, for example. Anyway, it turns out that PHP isn’t very good at recursion and when a […](image)

New Home, Sweet Homefeedwhip

Thu, 16 Aug 2007 23:54:52 +0000

Feedwhip has finally been kicked out of its parents’ basement and has a nice new home right on the beach. The raw server from ServerBeach was nicely pre-configured with just what I needed, and setting up Feedwhip code was only slightly painful. The server has now been running happily for an hour or so and […](image)

Pack a lunch, we’re going on a Picnikfeedwhip

I’m happy to announce that I’ll be joining the incredibly talented team over at Picnik on Monday. Picnik makes an outstanding online photo editor that towers over its competition and is an amazing example of just how good web applications can be. Walt Mossberg agrees. FWIW, Picnik hit just about every workplace criterion I was […](image)

Moving out of the basementfeedwhip

Wed, 15 Aug 2007 23:52:07 +0000

I’ve (finally) signed Feedwhip up for a dedicated hosted server. We’re moving out of the basement! The increased bandwidth and beefier server will improve both the performance of the web front end as well as increase the capacity of the website-checking back end. Unfortunately, this server comes with a hefty monthly price and the advertising […](image)

What you’re missingfeedwhip

Today I pushed out an update that lets you see what changes you’re NOT being shown. The idea is that this will help you to tweak your filter settings to get them just the way you like.(image)

More on Tagsfeedwhip

Fri, 03 Aug 2007 23:29:45 +0000

And just like that, I took out the automatic tagging code. It was kind of a burden on the server, but mostly I had gotten enough information out of it. I just wanted to seed the tagging system with some (more or less) useful data — now that the system is populated, user-generated tags can […](image)
