Bored. [May. 10th, 2001|10:23 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
[Tags|, ]

My paper's mostly done.
Need to review it and maybe wrap it up a bit better.
Took a break to make mac'n'cheese and watch TV.
Watched Discovery channel.... lightning and stuff. Yeah.
Bored bored.
I need to add people to my friends list ... it's moving too slow.

I was thinking of a feature idea... already you can append a group name to a friends group URL and filter your friends list on just that group, but I was thinking of making a group name of "reverse" instead show everybody that lists you as a friend on your friends list... so I could have 400 people on my friends list whenever I got really bored just by adding /reverse to the end of the URL. Anybody want to add that? modify get_friend_itemids in ljlib.pl .. add a flag to $opts called 'reverse', then change the first two queries (the one called "what do your friends think of the remote viewer", and the unlabed one ending in "and u.statusvis='V'". Shouldn't be too hard. I'd do it now but I should be working on homework and my stomach hurts.

Back to short lines.
I'm out of food. Mac'n'cheese sucks.
Need to wash my car. Need to get groceries.
Nothing else to write. Guhbye.

Marines? So you just go out and try to die as quickly as possible? :-)

Yay for that idea....the extra 40 or so people I've got around could be damn interesting when I'm bored. :)

I'd be afraid to read a list of the 290875434 people that list you as a friend....eep.

Spare my own ignorance, but from the friends group:

What is userid and what is friendid?
In my third world brain they have equal chance of being each other. Which makes figuring out what the first SELECT does (second one was easy) rather difficult.

Yeah, I'm trying to do this, yeah, I might be almost done with the get_friend_itemids mod, but blah.

just read the comments... duh... can you say "Self-Explanatory"...

this was probably some of the first code which the site ever had, so I'm not going to be too over-critical of it, but, Brad, wtf - we don't all know BraderlSQL.

friends table stores a set of tuples (a, b) such that a lists b as a friend.

I gathered as much, but that didn't really answer my question :) I think I got it figured out, though.

friendid lists userid as a friend?

SELECT ff.userid, ff.groupmask FROM friends fu, friends ff WHERE fu.userid=$userid AND fu.friendid=ff.userid AND ff.friendid=$remoteid

This gets people on the visited friends list whom have the remote user listed as a friend?

Brad -- maybe the fact that your friends list is moving too slow is a sign, ehh?

Slow friends are No Friends - isn't that the motto?

you know - You used to have me as a friend 'way back in 1999'... but apparently we've been through so much together, that you just couldn't take it and you removed me.

Notice how your excitement level has been all downhill from there? Isn't it obvious what the problem here is? Face it Brad, You need me back. Hey, I'm sure Blythe is great and all - but don't you remember the days when Virtualis' *cough* perfectly configured nameservers would stop serving requests to bradfitz.com and I'd get a call from you when I was (*Ahem*) alsleep, and I'd pry open my eyes and pretend I was fixing it, and actually ended up passing it off to someone totally incapable of doing it because I was personally too friekin' tired to do it myself? Where's the love Brad? I'm not feeling it.

Maybe I'll just remove you as my friend too. That'll only leave you 400 and something minus one - have you thought about what you're going to do with one less 'potential' friend on your list? You're /reverse feature (which I attempted to implement, but then the sleepyness and the not wanting to figure out your database factor or very nicely commented and 'use strict'd code came into play *grunts*). That arrow pointing to the right in my livejournal client, next to your name, symbolizes something for me. It represents a one way street. A one way street where you're driving one direction, and you're never coming back.

I see how it is. I'm just another would be friend. I'll always be LiveJournal user #23 Brad - you can't change that (unless you cheat). #23, a paying customer -- who do you think put that computer on your desk Brad? I took the effort to click that PayPal button, and this is the return I get? Hey - nobody can make me click it again. $25 of this site is mine - and I'm coming for my claim.

Alright - enough is enough... you know I have problems when I write more in Brad's comments than I do in my own journal. Just showing that I care. Unlike some brads. Off to write in my journal (helpless plug to get someone to care about my worthless life) - with or without me being Brad's friend.

I would raise me hand and jump up and down in my chair and say "Add me Add me Add me!!!" like some sort of livejournal groupie but I have too much self respect. :)

Add me

Well not really, but I just wanted to say I added you to mine. And you should know, all the people on my friends list are beautiful people.

*cackles*

No really they are, well some are added because I like to keep track of them. I can actually read down through my friends page without filters now.

I'm a hardcore LJer. I've said so many times I've wanted to leave, but I keep crawling back. Damn community aspect!

i thought easy mac was a gift from the gods, especially since my philosophy on cooking is "i better be able to make it in 10 minutes or i just won't eat." (this is also a good diet plan, incidentally). however, after an entire summer last year of eating easy mac, yeah, i'd agree with you....it does suck, and it left me pretty hungry my first year of college, cuz i just couldn't bring myself to a)eat easy mac or b)wash the dishes after i did...so basically....ummm...yeah

The mad genius has thought of another great idea.

I don't know if this has been suggested or not, but if it has then just ignore it.

You know how lj automatically sends out a message whenever someone has a birthday, well how about an automated message whenever someone adds you as a friend. My "friends of" list is somewhere around 70 and I don't always notice when someone new adds me which is a shame because if they're cool I'll add em back.

And oh yeah, the time zone thing too. heh.
