  1. Unlimited texting seems to be a default standard nowadays I was walking today and I thought of the idea of blogging via SMS It's not a new idea, did a brief search I saw API's and such, not sure if they are "pure" or affiliated with some sort of CMS somewhere Anyway, I imagine the basic idea is an endpoint to receive the texts from people's phones after their phones have been verified / logged on the site. I'm just wondering how the actual part of understanding the SMS and somehow accessing it from the phone's OS and connecting to the website and updating the databases... Maybe it's not far... I don't know... I guess I ought to pick a phone like Android and start from there. Any thoughts? It's nothing crazy, just like "Oh I have an idead, post" and I realize an app could be just as easy as SMS but SMS is like an obvious, well known thing to use, so how hard is it to open your sms and respond to the saved contact which you have most likely have been posting to already?
  2. Well take adblock for example, I'm not sure how they work, I would like to think that they read the source and find code that matches advertisments like the format for google adsense and somehow re-write them like for example using jQuery setting display: to none; but I don't know if that is possible.
  3. How do you know if it is secure? I was looking at some pages. It would be nice to have weekly or even daily export at a certain time of databases and storing of source code. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/134906/how-do-i-list-all-cron-jobs-for-all-users http://kb.mediatemple.net/questions/1577/Working+with+a+hacked+or+compromised+server#gs I imagine even if you did something like live output of the server processes not just the 1 min 5 min 15 min thing, somehow something can get by undetected. There is so much to cover. Anyway thanks for your response. More to add to the to-learn list.
  4. I have the IP and I've looked them up in ip look up websites I suppose I ought to do a pattern recognition thing, IP's looking for this sort of thing are automatically blocked I'd appreciate any thoughts regarding this situation How do you block an IP anyway? Do something like "If this ip, exit(); " ?
  5. I've recently started tracking visitors, simple incrementers on load that gather IP address and webpage. For the most part they are bots but I've been seeing the webpages they are trying to access which many don't exist but they have me concerned Man I can't believe this thing is targeting the server so much and this is only today that I've began gathering data. I've had this server online for at least a month now http://my-ip:80/script http://my-ip:80/jenkins/script http://my-ip:80/login http://my-ip:80/jmx-console http://my-ip:80/manager/html http://my-ip:80/msd http://my-ip:80/mySqlDumper http://my-ip:80/msd1.24stable http://my-ip:80/msd1.24.4 So... how do I know when I am no longer safe? What is safe anyway?
  6. I have this in mind Somehow they are rewareded for their usage but I've been developing websites left and right and nobody is using them sad Anyway, I could pay for advertising, but I'm looking for a place where you can jumpstart a site, drop it there and it'll start to get used and then somehow by the miracle of word of mouth it will grow on its own. I don't have any good domain names... bumsbuns doesn't seem to be appropriate hahaha Anyway, any thoughts are appreciate otherwise I'll manifest it eventually could be a completely flawed plan but I for one would love to have it
  7. I see your point, I'm creating a learning application where I can just go to a website, select all, copy, drop it into the text input and then a summary is generated after I have "taught" it to learn so to speak, eg. provided samples... more on this, a paragraph and then the words I pulled out... I believe that with the English language in general there is a structure (of course) but I mean, you could create a pattern recognition where the summary or the main point of the entire webpage could be found and then I would just create a curl or some sort of scraper that would search multiple websites looking for the same topic and creating a collection of summaries and then these would ideally be read back to me haha <- gotta hire a narrator I'm wondering about how strings are parsed eg. left to right top to bottom so I probably can't explode the words with identifiers like a sort of array and then isolate and find word frequencies and such without going from left to right through every word
  8. Curious how I should go about creating this Creating an array / list of common everyday words with identifiers like nouns/pronouns/adverbs/verbs... Wondering if I have to scrape grammar/dictionary websites or if this already exists What could be a better approach?
  9. Sort of being lazy, I wanted to just embed the main inteface of my website in a small window, rather than rescaling it. So if I did <iframe src="mysite.com" width="auto" height='auto"> am I vulnerable for an attack eg. someone replacing the src with a different location. ?
  10. I'm trying to devise a summarizer, I intend to "teach it" so to speak, how to take a wall of garbage and summarize it. This is useful to me when I want to learn about things quickly and not have to sift through garbage. I intend to build a scraper of some kind or actually to start with a direct copy and paste approach, and then "the magic happens" pattern recognition, word frequency with identifiers on the page of where stuff is and how many sources were used Anyway, aside from the technical part of storing the information locally or on a server to be processed using javascript or php, I'm curious about what route to go with... It would seem obvious, use the client's resources, to save on server resources but how much can I get? I don't know if you can have a lot of access to the clients processing power... what about browser based games? It's really not a lot of computing I would like to assume. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
  11. This is for a future project, just an interest at the moment I'm curious if you can keep something alive per se by bouncing it back and forward between random servers To exist "in the stream" so to speak This is a two purpose question Part of it is to keep something alive in transmission The other is to not store something but be able to test it, the purpose for this is to accept code without format and still safely apply it to a test website design without risk of destroying the server. Almost like a trash virtual server that only persists while the user is in session Any thoughts are welcome, please limit the condescending comments, humor me
  12. Okay I'll go with that Until I get more experience and start tracking / observing the resource use for my specific application / page design Thanks
  13. I did increase it to a day. Thank you for your response.
