Had fun working for our State.

Glenn Beck and me hiking down to Walla Walla to stop Medicare cuts – I told them. They renew me.

Former Secretary Salazar suspends adoption of Arizona. Had fun working for our State.

Well, time’s up.  Have to put this on hold.  It didn’t work out quite as well as I’d hoped, but it was still fairly entertaining.  I might have to come back to it later and see what else can be done.

And so, I leave you with the immortal words of Ronald Reagan: ((They’re his words…  Just not necessarily the order he ever used them in.)

America must stand by and see it in a pile of rubble.  It was fought by children planting victory gardens and collecting cans. Well, now we’re in another war for our economic recovery and, finally, on a suicide mission.

Too Many Twits

The scraper died when it got to Newt Gingrich.  Looks like I might have hit the API call limit.  Wasn’t expecting that, but I guess it’s possible.  I should probably tweak the scraper a bit so that it doesn’t keep asking for pages that don’t exist…

Facing Reality

These are proposing this generation of destiny.

Time is the enemy here.  I did not devote enough time to this project and now I have run out.  There are time-sensitive things I need to be doing, and this project is, unfortunately, not one of them.

Leaving time aside, there are other issues which stand in my way:

  • Using the Twitter API to post causes your tweets to be tagged with your application name.  Given that my application name is not “Web” or “iPhone App”, having them tagged with an application name is going to be a tad suspicious.
  • The gibberish generator is producing gibberish.  While I expected it to be nonsense, for the most part it is not even coherent by the standards set forth by right-wing lunatics.  I did anticipate this scenario and I have some ideas on how to mitigate this problem ((I have a book sitting right here that gives the Dijkstra algorithm and another one that talks about neural nets…)), but I don’t have time to implement any of them.
  • 140 characters is way too limiting.  Way way way too limiting.

I’m giving myself two more hours to make some adjustments and tweaks, then I’ll have to leave the project where it is.  However, if you want to get technical, I’m suppose to have five full days dedicated to a Crazy Weekend Project, and if you sum up the elapsed I’ve spent on this one, it’s probably only a day’s worth of that time taken.  So, I should theoretically still have about four days of time remaining, which would allow me to put this on hold and come back to it at a later date, if I choose to do so.
