I realized that when I need to use new Open Source project, I add it to Ohloh (if it’s not there yet) to see what they have to say about it.
The only problem is that I’m too lazy to do that every time I need to use some software. I wonder why Ohloh doesn’t just use Google to find all SVN repos to crawl?
It’s first time for me to see somebody else’s project on the domain I registered.
Here’s my feed if you’re interested: http://friendfeed.com/sergeychernyshev
P.S. almost like http://sergeychernyshev.feedfriends.com/ ;)
I spent some time this weekend writing a new kind of application – Facebook application.
It’s quite interesting how they built their platform and they are probably first to do this kind of thing, at least among big players.
Anyway, come and take a looks at Friends Explorer application. Currently it shows birthday time-lines for your friends, but more features will follow (only if you’ll add it ;)).
It looks like Facebook is not the only one to create web application platforms.
I wrote a simple extension to LWP::ConnCache, which allows to somehow resolve keys before putting connections into cache.
Task is not very obvious until you understand that http://www.example.com/ and http://example.com/ are the same server and there is no need to open two connections if you want to get data from both sites.
Moreover http://*.livejournal.com and http://*.blogger.com are the same server.
how you do resolution – using DNS or using some other algorithm is left to developer.
Anyway – her it is: LWP::ConnCache::Resolving.
