We will definitely repeat such meetings in the future, with a larger audience hopefully. Let me know your suggestions on schedule, topics to cover, etc.

Ok, this meeting is going to an end, and I have been very happy to host you tonight despite the horrible service provided by Blue Host.

Bernard, no shop, we have a baby instead :D
Maurer Steve

Deb works with me.............she had to go for a minute to help client.

Steve, you are not an idiot, and I am looking for your suggestions in some time...
Maurer Steve
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:54 pm GMT
Bernard, I am an idiot , but I am looking at files/view.php......interesting.

Bernard Paques
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:47 pm GMT
Stephan, yacs does limit the number of links added through feeds. However, the previous versions allow for "link-spamming" through pseudo-clicks, and this explains why the table of links has grown so far at many YACS sites.
Steve, you are a brilliant person, aren't you? Please look at files/view.php to look at what we could do with .pgc files and let me know what I have to add to the script... Thanks.
Nick, are you still using yacs for the shop?
Stephan, the file is not properly encoded, that's why. Look at the page source for the feed...
Deb, are you using yacs as well?

Anstey Stephan
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:46 pm GMT
Http://feeds.feedburner.com/DiggingCheeseOutOfCarpet?format=xml that is the type of xml feed that isn't working. for some reason.
Maurer Steve
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:46 pm GMT
Yes, this is the correct Anoto.................they have a big push for routing the Anoto pen files (these extensions are called .pgc files) over mobile devices. I could imagine YACS being used a point for mobile users to log on to in order to download a ".pgc file router" onto their enterprise mobile phone. This could be tied into a "mobile YACS" chat and we are all in new buissness.

Anstey Stephan

My main concern is that setting up links to purge on a time basis will not work
unless you can mark the links that are to be purged and those that are to be saved.

Bernard Paques
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:45 pm GMT
Stephan, you are a poet among poets...

Anstey Stephan
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:44 pm GMT
No problem Bernard. I wasn't either. I just figured you should know.

Bernard Paques
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:42 pm GMT
Stephan, sorry for this collateral effect, I was not aware of this library.
Nick, we manually 'DELETE from yacs_links', this is the reason why...
Stephan, maybe you have a backup copy of the database you could restore?
N1ckR
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:42 pm GMT
Ouch !Is it possible to to limit the number of links in a section ?

Bernard Paques
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:41 pm GMT
Steve, Is this the Anoto you were talking about?

Anstey Stephan
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:40 pm GMT
:) OOOOH, I found a major problem with our solution for links the other day.
We purged all my old links.. but i had an entire link library built up and organized. it purged those as well as the feeds.

Bernard Paques
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:40 pm GMT
Stephan, this is why I am thinking about distinguishing tags, for folksonomies, from category assignments. Category assignments would become reserved to associates, at least for user profiles.
Maurer Steve
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:38 pm GMT
But of course, if I can help let me know.............yes I have added the additional extentions.

Anstey Stephan
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:37 pm GMT
MY suggestion on this Bernard... Is that you add an associate tagging system. so that we can tag members into a group, identical to that, but so the user can not define it themselves. (otherwise, we can't have an 'associate' group or whatever, they'd all assign themselves that group.

Bernard Paques
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:36 pm GMT
Steve, I supose you have added the extension .pad in the configuration panel for files? If you like, we could have a standard support for these files, with some pointers to suitable tools to be used after download, etc.
N1ckR

NJ - Nice to see YACS been used for something different.

Anstey Stephan
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:35 pm GMT
I have not checked this recently, but does the xml feed recognize blogger at this point? It didn't a few weeks ago?
Ooh ok.

Bernard Paques
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:35 pm GMT
Yes, you can either assign categories aside, or update the TAGS field in the middle of the page...
Maurer Steve
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:35 pm GMT
Yes, I work with a lot of Anoto files(digital pen files) .pad file and yes, I work .ps files alot. YACS handles this all.

Anstey Stephan
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:34 pm GMT
Found it.
assign categories on the right side of the user form.

Bernard Paques
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:33 pm GMT
Stephan, it's in the edit form for users, look a second time...

Anstey Stephan
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:32 pm GMT
:) sweet! Where do I tag users, I did it at some point, but I have no memory of where it is/

Bernard Paques
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:32 pm GMT
Steve, do you have many postscript files to share?
Maurer Steve
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:32 pm GMT
It out "Sharepoints", Microsoft sharepoint.........great for storing and organizing internal documents and traing tools like training videos

Bernard Paques
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:32 pm GMT
Stephan, yes this one has to be fixed by end of this month.
Tof
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:30 pm GMT
Even if Yacs was an english/german/japonese  project, i will still use it to program web applications for my customers, because yacs is the tool i was looking for.

Anstey Stephan
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:29 pm GMT
OH, that google bug drives me nuts.
The way the maps no longer center.
Maurer Steve
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:29 pm GMT
Looked long and hard, Joomla, Moomla, Drupal, sUPAL..........EVERYTHING. YACS is so far ahead. I have corporate clients in the USA that have had there jaw dropped with some of the capabilities.

Bernard Paques

Maurer Steve

I am using YACS to have my clients download Postscript file for printing, works great

Bernard Paques

I also have some questions to you actually.
And the first one is: why and how are you using this software package coming from France, at the end of the day?
Maurer Steve
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:26 pm GMT
:), thanks, I will calm down

Bernard Paques
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:25 pm GMT
Stephan, this will come, promised!
Maurer Steve
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:25 pm GMT
Or Blackberry messenger

Bernard Paques
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:25 pm GMT
NIck, one way to go is to bridge Jabber with the MySQL back-end. Not a big deal apparently, but not available at all ISP of course...

Anstey Stephan
on Apr. 10 2008 at 08:24 pm GMT
If I could email everyone with a 'poet' keyword, voila, i've got a mailing list.
