[REPOST]: Did you know you can easily fetch rss feeds of your items for sale on SuchList to display on your own site etc?

2014-05-22T13:55:01+00:00

Hi everyone awesome!

If you missed it before. I was smart enough to post to almost an empty sub :)

Wanted to start giving you small tips and tricks. Here's the first one

2014-05-22T08:45:50+00:00

Yes, it's true. In fact, quite simple :)

I'll stream line this a bit in the future but for now you have to take a few manual steps.

  • Log into your account and click My Account
  • Hover over the link to your public profile and id is. It will read &id=*x* in the end where x is your user id. Let's for the sake of argument say that it is 2
  • Go to the search page. This can be done by going to the main page and clicking search.
  • Refine your search if you only wish to include a specific category etc
  • You will now have a url looking something like http://www.suchlist.com/index.php?page=search&sCategory=98. Category 98 is Steam.
  • Now you can refine it to only include your own items by altering this url and appending &seller_post=2 to the end
  • To make it even more easy to use this on your site, we will now turn this result into an rss feed. This is done by also appending &sFeed=

So if your id was 2 you would now have a url looking like

http://www.suchlist.com/index.php?page=search&sCategory=98&seller_post=2&sFeed=

This will give you an rss feed to all your listing in the steam category.

This can the easily be integrated into your site and show all your listings for your visitors.

I will, as I said, try to streamline this in the future so you easily can get the url to use without having to manually craft it.

Overwatch Hero Meta Report: Season 2, Meta Boogaloo

2016-09-06T15:07:53+00:00

Hey Reddit, CaptainPlanet here! I sometimes write about Overwatch. First, here are this week's announcements: Overbuff is hiring Content Producers! Read more in that link^   Since some of you can't be bothered to read the whole report -- here's a 5 second summary of my conclusions: We're back, baby! Overwatch Season 2 dropped five days early, and its time to break down the first week of the New Meta. Triple Tank Triple Support comps, new analysis, and Meta Predictions inside!   Please remember that this data is taken from PC TOURNAMENTS ONLY. This isn't meant to represent general trends, or represent Console trends, or represent anything but maybe the very top of Ranked Play, so please stop asking me why Torbjorn isn't listed in the top Tier.   A lot of you complained about too many announcements and stuff at the top So skip to the bottom for the link dump!   Opening Thoughts What’s up guys and gals, CaptainPlanet here to present the Overwatch Hero Tier List and Meta Report: Season Two, Meta Boogaloo. Let's start this week with some escalating hypothetical questions. What if I told you, that there were no Heroes with greater than 80% usage? What if I told you, that Pharah and Mercy are no longer liabilities as picks? What if I told you, that reports of Genji’s demise were greatly exaggerated? What. If. I. Told. You....that there’s a crazy new strategy that’s suddenly viable, which uses ZERO DPS HEROES???   Welcome to Overwatch Season 2.   It’s been two weeks since we last convened, but it’s a brand new season with brand new set of balance changes and we have a brand new Meta to discuss. In my time off recovering from sickness, I was also able to develop some brand new content for you all to enjoy with some help from someone much better at data visualization software than I. This and much more will be revealed soon -- but let’s first check out the first Tier List of the new Season. This week’s data pre-sorted can be found HERE . The data is presented Row-wise for each Map Side. REMINDER: This Data was collected from the Alienware Monthly Melee finals, and the Gosugamers EU and NA weekly tournaments that took place September 2-4th THE TIERS S Tier (>=95% Usage Rate): *No one!** A Tier (>80% Usage Rate): No one! B Tier (>50% Usage Rate): Zenyatta, Lucio, Zarya, McCree, Reinhardt, Winston C Tier (>20% Usage Rate): Mercy(!), Genji, Tracer, Reaper D Tier (>5% Usage Rate): Pharah, Roadhog, Mei, Ana, D.Va, Hanzo, Soldier 76 F Tier (<5 % Usage Rate): Junkrat, Widowmaker, Bastion, Torbjorn, Symmetra \What is Usage Rate? For every match, I record the time spent on each hero and divide it by that match's total time duration. Each of these Data points (a number from 0-1) are then summed across all sides of all matches, then divided by the total number of sides and converted to a percentage to produce a hero's overall Usage Rate.* The Tier Ranges I’ve chosen** reflect different states of “Balance” in the Meta. This week, the Meta that is being analyzed is the Meta of 1 hero Limit, and Stopwatch Scoring for successful attacks on Payload Maps. S Tier "The Overpowered Heroes" Ding dong, the Lucio/Zenyatta-dominated Meta is dead -- for a little while at least. Buffs to Mercy and nerfs to Lucio and Zenyatta have opened up room for the two other Healing supports in the opening weeks of Season 2, and understandably more Mercy and Ana means less Lucio and Zenyatta. A Tier "The Core Heroes" Surprisingly, there were no Heroes that fell into the 80-95% usage range this week, indicating that the Meta is in a state of heavy flux. Teams are in “high experimentation mode”, trying out many new strat[...]



Overwatch Hero Meta Report: Don't Panic.

2016-08-11T12:49:55+00:00

~~Hey Reddit, CaptainPlanet here! I sometimes write about Overwatch. First, here are this week's announcements:   First, since some of you can't be bothered to read the whole report -- here's a 5 second summary of my conclusions: This week, the Meta seems to be in dire straights. 11 of Overwatch's 22 Heroes had less than 5% usage rate for the third qualifying weekend of the Faceit Eleague Tourney and the culprit is two simple abilities: Discord Orb and Speed Boost. It's a bit too early to panic, however, as many of the F Tier Heroes have had success in previous Metas -- it's simply the Deathball Meta that's pushed them down the ladder.   Second, Please remember that this data is taken from PC TOURNAMENTS ONLY. This isn't meant to represent general trends, or represent Console trends, or represent anything but maybe the very top of Ranked Play, so please stop asking me why Torbjorn isn't listed in the top Tier.   Third, a final reminder: that I have joined Overbuff as its Content Manager! This means that my Reports will NOW be hosted on their site. This does NOT mean my reddit posts will be going away, so you all have nothing to fear <3 *which is totally awesome by the way. you should check out their "Live" page in particular -- it lets you track your favorite streamer's rank, skill rating, and Hero stats as well as discover new streamers who play the Heroes you like the most.   Fourth, later today I will be releasing a "Meet the Players" article profiling the players from the competitive Overwatch scene who received invites to the Overwatch World Cup! If you want your country to win at BlizzCon, I suggest you check it out. I will make [This Link]() live once it's up! For those who are new: These are the rules and assumptions I make in order to collect this data without going insane. They are as follows (or skip them, if you don't care): Note Heroes at the beginning of the Game Note all Hero switches that occur throughout the game, where they occurred, and what time they occurred **Hero Usage Rate then is == to Time Spent on Hero / Total Match Time   Now that that's out of the way, here's a Link Dump: My Twitter Follow me if you want to keep up to date with my reports! I'll usually go live on my site and announce on Twitter some time before I post to reddit, and I also dump all of my infographics there for easy sharing A link to the Raw Data for all of you statistic-junkie Redditors. Data was taken from the FACEIT Eleague Qualifiers #3, EU and NA If you'd rather see a Summary Spreadsheet, I also have you covered This week's Raw Data is separated out into individual Maps, displayed on POW Analyst Sheet. Give them a look! Speaking of which, this is a link to the V1.2 POW Sheet Template The 1.2 tracks win shares! Here's a link to my blog, where my full Report resides check it out you'll love it People who were requesting I set up an RSS feed for my content -- it should work on this site! A link to /u/icarusgamers- YouTube Channel he helps me collect the data, and does his own Video-based Meta Report -- check it out!   Finally, here's Some pretty Infographics Hero Usage Rate for this Week Hero Tier List Hero Offense and Defense Win Shares Swaps TO and FROM Infographics Interactive Historical Meta Tracking Charts: Overall Usage Offense/Defense/KotH Split Usage Highly recommend playing around with the above ^ you can turn off specific Heroes and mousing over a Hero highlights their progression on all four charts, very informative!   THE TIERS S Tier (>=95% Usage Rate*): Zenyatta, Lucio A Tier (>80% Usage Rate): B Tier (>50% Usage Rate):Zarya, McCr[...]



What we Learned in the Russia Probe: March 11 - 17

2018-03-19T13:23:15+00:00

Housekeeping: It's finals week and I'm sick. I apologize for any typos or errors, please let me know if you see any. I will come back to it throughout the day to edit or add to it. Guide to the new format: Roughly organized by subject. For those that want quick highlights, skip the bullet points. Feedback welcome! There’s a mailing list for notifications when this review is posted plus a link. To be added, send me PM with your email address. If you signed up already, check the spam folder just in case If you’d like to donate a dollar a month, I’d appreciate it: patreon. Reviews will continue regardless. On to the review... Week of March 11 - 17: What we Learned in the Russia Probe Opening image Mueller investigation For the first time, Mueller has directly demanded that Trump’s business turn over documents, issuing subpoenas to the Trump Organization. There are no details about the contents of the subpoena, but it has been reported that Trump was furious the media found out about it. Mueller has given Trump's lawyers a list of questions he would like to ask the president. The list is meant as a starting point, and Mueller made it clear he wants to ask follow up questions in person. Sessions fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, only 2 days before he was set to retire. McCabe maintains that his firing was due to him being a witness to the events around James Comey’s firing, and that Trump is trying to discredit him before he becomes a key witness in Mueller’s investigation. His full statement can be read here. After McCabe released his statement, it was reported that he had already been interviewed by Mueller’s team. McCabe is said to have written numerous memos documenting his interactions with Trump, which have been turned over to Mueller. After news broke of McCabe's memos, Trump tweeted that McCabe never took notes when they were together and suggested calling them "fake memos." Full tweet. McCabe's firing kicked off a weekend of Trump disparaging the FBI and Mueller, raising suspicions that he is planning to fire Mueller shortly. Qatar has decided not to give Mueller evidence they possess that the Trump administration - including Jared Kushner - and associates have turned the UAE against them in revenge for failed business dealings. Specifically, Qatari officials believe that Jared Kushner had the Trump administration endorse a blockage of Qatar in retaliation for officials declining to fund Kushner Company’s failing 5th Avenue flagship property. Mueller is looking into the effects of Kushner’s business dealings on official US policy. Lebanese-American businessman George Nader and Republican donor Elliott Broidy are also alleged to have played a role. Nader is now cooperating with Mueller. Making it known that they possess evidence that they’re withholding could be an attempt by Qatar officials to essentially blackmail Kushner and Trump. Facebook has suspended Trump-affiliated political research firm Cambridge Analytica from accessing user data after they (finally) revealed that Cambridge Analytica fraudulently obtained Facebook user data and used that data to target Trump campaign ads. This took place roughly two years ago, and Facebook is only now reacting. Cambridge Analytica was funded by Trump donor Robert Mercer and Steven Bannon sat on it board. A co-founder of Cambridge Analytica has turned ‘whistleblower’ and is speaking out about the practices of the company, which he likens to a tool of psychological warfare. George Papadopoulos stated that during a foreign policy meeting on March 31, 2016, Trump personally encouraged him to arrange a meeting with Putin through his British con[...]

Overwatch Hero Meta Report: I Love Lucio

Hey Reddit, CaptainPlanet here! I sometimes write about Overwatch. First, here are this week's announcements:   First, since some of you can't be bothered to read the whole report -- here's a 5 second summary of my conclusions: The Meta is stale so I take a deep dive into what makes Lucio tick with one of Overwatch's best Lucios -- dhaK of Team SelflessGG.

Also maximum projectile speed increased by 30% Is...is Hanzo viable now? Despite his lack of usage at the Pro level, Hanzo has always had one of the higher straight up damage potential of all heroes in Overwatch -- his headshot arrows can one-shot any hero short of tanks. Increasing his arrow’s projectile speed cuts down on the “arc” of the arrows, increasing his consistency and making his projectiles less dodge-able. We could conceivably see serious Hanzo picks, especially if Pharah makes her way back into the Meta. Mei Blizzard projectile pierces barriers and radius increased Quality of life change for Mei, making her ultimate more consistent. Right now, Mei is only used in desperate stall situations to add a precious few seconds to the stopwatch -- I’m not sure that a change to her ultimate will affect her usage tha[...]



Magic Mirror how to

2015-10-13T12:19:28+00:00

I have been seeing a bunch of these and decided to build one but couldn't find good instructions on exactly what to do, a lot of it was implied knowledge and not very good for beginners. I am going to make this a simple as possible so I will include a prebuilt UI that is commonly mentioned. Things you will need: Raspberry pi (I used an A+ for mine so pretty much anything will work) SD card with linux (I used raspbian jessie) LCD with HDMI input (I used an old monitor with an HDMI to VGA adapter) wifi adapter powered USB hub (maybe, I used ssh for everything so I only needed it to get the wifi configured) carpentry skills (I won't get into this because it will be different for each mirror) Installing and configuring: If you want to install everything up front you can run: sudo apt-get install php5 midori unclutter that's all the apt repository based stuff that this requires. I am going to bypass burning the image to the SD card, just google it. Once you have your pi up and running jessie will boot to the GUI. Click the menu and look for raspberry config in the preferences section. Expand the file system and set the localization settings so that the time is correct. Do not change the boot behaviour, we want it to auto login to the GUI. Reboot to apply the FS change and make sure you connect to your wifi network, it will auto connect every time after this so you only have to do it once. you need to install a few things to make the UI work. Open the terminal and run update and upgrade to get the most recent updates to your system. sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade We are going to install our webserver and php. If you just install php5 then it will also install apache2 and everything they need to run. sudo apt-get install php5 Now we need to get the magic mirror UI, which is a php website. The originator maintains a git repo that has what you want. Go to apache's directory and clone the git repo (it's not that scary). cd /var/www/html sudo git clone https://github.com/MichMich/MagicMirror Git has created a folder called MagicMirror and copied all of the files from the repository into it, Git is awesome like that. I didn't change any permissions here so any changes you make will need to use sudo or you can change the permissions on the folders and files. At this point your magic mirror is working! but it isn't in english and it doesn't show up when you boot the pi. You can use a browser on any computer on your network to take a look. Use ifconfig to get the IP address of your pi and go to http:///MagicMirror/ to see it. config settings: sudo nano /var/www/html/MagicMirror/config Next up we have to modify the rest of config. This is where you will need to do a little bit of legwork, you need 3 things: Language (english is 'en') an open weather map API key an RSS feed (if you want it to display news) your private calendar link from gcal or other calendar web app The calendar can read any iCal calendar that is shared on the web. If you use google calendar you can get this by clicking the little down arrow to the right of your calendar name and selecting 'calendar settings'. Copy the private iCal address and use nano to edit the js file, if you use the public calendar link it will just show 'Busy' for every event and we don't want that. If you just want it to show holidays then here is a list of holiday calendars that you can link it to or import into your google calendar. The weather api is free. go the the API signup page and sign up! Once you do that you can get your API key. cd /var[...]

an updated how to: to create a subreddit to keep track of your adventurer log

2017-10-27T13:31:59+00:00

today i was getting a lot of PM's that my subreddit creation guide is broken due to the old IFTTT applet to manage the subreddit no longer exists. (from before here: https://redd.it/5cpzqs) here is an updated version. this can also be found on my subreddit too; r/Chigz/wiki/index/subsetup feel free to reply and/or give me a tweet @chigz_ if anything needs to be changed or looked at :) -- how to create a RuneScape adventurer log subreddit On reddit Go the reddit front page and click on create your own subreddit Imgur. Give it; a name, a title and a description - Imgur Set the type to Restricted - Imgur Set the Spam filter strength to Low and Other options accordingly (these can be left at the default) - Imgur Click Create - Imgur On RuneScape go to the RuneScape website and sign in to the website. - Imgur navigate to the RuneMetrics page; mouse over Community and click RuneMetrics - Imgur you'll find the details of your character here. click on All activity - Imgur and then RSS feed (a new page will open with all your recent activity in game) - Imgur Copy the whole address for later (this can be done by right clicking the address bar and clicking copy) - Imgur (make sure your RuneMetrics profile is set to Public. to confirm this, go to the RuneScape homepage, click on Account and check your RuneMetrics profile setting at the bottom) on IFTTT Go to the IFTTT website – http://ifttt.com - and create an account. (IFTTT does some great things such as; controlling your smart home, controlling Amazon Alexa, giving you email notificaitons for certain things and so much more). After you're signed into IFTTT, click on your name at the top left hand corner and click New Applet - Imgur Click +this and type in RSS and click RSS Feed - Imgur Click on New feed item and then paste in the URL from the RuneMetrics RSS Feed from the RuneScape website - Imgur Click +that and type in reddit (you may be asked to connect your reddit account at this point - connect the two together) - Imgur Click submit a new text post- Imgur This part may look a little confusing now however all you need to do is type in your subreddit name into the box at the bottom. e.g my subreddit is /r/chigz so i would type in chigz. Click Create action when you've typed in your subreddit name. - Imgur You can name it at this stage, i've called mine adv log to reddit /r/chigz and click Finish (if you want you can move the slider if you don't want to recieve notifications - Imgur - That's it! ----- Extras Auto Approve Self Posts - AutoModerator We'll need to invite AutoModerator for this, go to your subreddit and on the right hand side you'll see Moderators, type in AutoModerator and click Add (if it's already there then there's no need to do this step) Imgur. now go back to your subreddit page and in the address bar type in /wiki/config/automoderator into the address barImgur once you're there, click Edit and copy and paste in the below (including the 3 dashes) --- # Auto-approve self-posts domain: "self.Chigz" action: approve (replacing self.Chigz with self.[name of your subreddit]) That's it! - Use your RS Avatar as the subreddit post thumbnail - on RuneScape go to the RuneScape website and sign in - Imgur nagivate over to the RuneMetrics page; mouse over Community and click RuneMetrics You'll see your character's details here. Now from this page, we want the avatar, to get this, right click on the avatar and save the image to your desktop. - Imgur Once you have the image, open it in an im[...]



Overwatch Hero Meta Report: Don't Panic.

2016-08-11T12:50:27+00:00

Hey Reddit, CaptainPlanet here! I sometimes write about Overwatch. First, here are this week's announcements:   First, since some of you can't be bothered to read the whole report -- here's a 5 second summary of my conclusions: This week, the Meta seems to be in dire straights. 11 of Overwatch's 22 Heroes had less than 5% usage rate for the third qualifying weekend of the Faceit Eleague Tourney and the culprit is two simple abilities: Discord Orb and Speed Boost. It's a bit too early to panic, however, as many of the F Tier Heroes have had success in previous Metas -- it's simply the Deathball Meta that's pushed them down the ladder.   Second, Please remember that this data is taken from PC TOURNAMENTS ONLY. This isn't meant to represent general trends, or represent Console trends, or represent anything but maybe the very top of Ranked Play, so please stop asking me why Torbjorn isn't listed in the top Tier.   Third, a final reminder: that I have joined Overbuff as its Content Manager! This means that my Reports will NOW be hosted on their site. This does NOT mean my reddit posts will be going away, so you all have nothing to fear <3 *which is totally awesome by the way. you should check out their "Live" page in particular -- it lets you track your favorite streamer's rank, skill rating, and Hero stats as well as discover new streamers who play the Heroes you like the most.   Fourth, later today I will be releasing a "Meet the Players" article profiling the players from the competitive Overwatch scene who received invites to the Overwatch World Cup! If you want your country to win at BlizzCon, I suggest you check it out. I will make [This Link]() live once it's up! For those who are new: These are the rules and assumptions I make in order to collect this data without going insane. They are as follows (or skip them, if you don't care): Note Heroes at the beginning of the Game Note all Hero switches that occur throughout the game, where they occurred, and what time they occurred **Hero Usage Rate then is == to Time Spent on Hero / Total Match Time   Now that that's out of the way, here's a Link Dump: My Twitter Follow me if you want to keep up to date with my reports!

Overwatch Hero Meta Report: ZenyattaWatch

2016-08-04T13:52:52+00:00

Hey Reddit, CaptainPlanet here! I sometimes write about Overwatch. First, here are this week's announcements:   First, since some of you can't be bothered to read the whole report -- here's a 5 second summary of my conclusions: Lucio and Zenyatta finally have no significant outside pressures holding them back from dominating the Meta -- and so that's exactly what they've done. When you put the two best abilities in the game -- Discord Orb and Speed Boost -- on an essential class (Healing Support), it's no surprise that these two Heroes end up on top. I discuss this and more, as I introduce a new metric: Win Shares, used to pair Usage Rate with Offensive and Defensive wins. Oh yea, watch out: Tracers may soon be invading the Meta as well.   Second, Please remember that this data is taken from PC TOURNAMENTS ONLY.
