The trouble with Whole Foods – redux

Eh hmm! It’s not just a New York Whole Foods problem it’s a common Whole Foods problem.

We have count them 1 Whole Foods market in St. Louis and it has the same problem. Apparently, some people loose there ability to walk when they enter a Whole Foods market. Have you ever wanted to say “WTF! Just buy the damn Organic apple already  and  get the fuck  out of my way”.  (opps! Did I just say that?)

I feel like I want to MOOOOOOOO when I go into the store.
Cause I feel like a cow in a heard grazing and movin real slow.

Ditto! Mac OS X is better, deal with it.

Another switch! I don’t think anyone could have said it better.

Sorry, newsRiver is not a community project

Recently, I received an email about newsRiver AJAX suggestions. I wanted to let people know that I am not a developer on the newsRiver code base. This IS NOT a community based project it’s a Dave developed project.

So, please don’t email with your feature request.

If Dave truly wanted a community developing the newRiver.root then he would have taken the steps to make it a community devloped project using Source Forge or something. So if you would like to see a feature added or a bug fixed then you need to figure out a way to communicate that to Dave not me.

Thanks!

This is absolutely hilarious.

newsRiver ajax integration progress

I cleaned up and fixed a couple of bugs with the AJAX integration for newsRiver. You can now run it on any server and on any port. I also fixed the status message when making a request. The code has been commented with my changes.

Again this code implements Daniel’s demo interface. Which allows you to delete a story by just clicking on the checkbox.

The code I changed was the newsRiverWebsite.#template and the newsRiverSuite.viewNewsItems which I zipped up. I am not sure what you would do with those two exported pieces of code but here they are for the taking.

I also uploaded the newsRiver.root database. According to Dave Winer it’s a bad idea or can be dangerous to install it that way.

SO DON’T BLAME ME IF YOU MESS SOMETHING UP. BACK UP YOUR STUFF FIRST.

RiverNews Ajax etc..

Daniel Berlinger posted a working ajax demo with the newsRiver interface. So, I implemented it in the NewsRiver aggregator. Basically it will delete a story when you click on the checkbox using AJAX.

Here is the newsRiver.root database Warning I don’t know if this is the proper way to update your newsRiver code base. I know very little about userTalk. So BACK UP YOUR newsRiver.root FIRST before you use this..

Update: If you downloaded the newsRiver.root DON’T install it. It would be a bad thing from what I understand.
