The Gingeometer

One of the quirks of ukrm, was the fact that (when it was a higher daily volume group) people used to call out “Ginge” when a URL was posted more than once. It was called a “Ginge” affectionately after one of the posters to the group as he was always trying to keep up at the back. As such, I developed a script to track all these posted URLs and to stick them into a searchable database. You can see the page here (the results table does need a bit of formatting):

 NOTE: AS A LOT OF THE URLS HAD TO BE ADDED MANUALLY TO POPULATE THE INITIAL DATABASE, THE URL POSTING USER NAME MAY COME UP AS “MANUALLY_ADDED”. IF YOU WANT CREDIT FOR A PARTICULAR URL, PLEASE DROP ME A LINE

The results page is a bit naff at the moment, but I’m working on a nice style 🙂 Oh, if you know how to create fixed width columns using CSS, please, please drop me a line (use the contact link up there). The database is updated on an hourly basis. If you can’t find a recent URL, come back in an hour!

My plans for the future: Other options will become available, comment additions and dead link notifications. When I get round to it that is. Step by step please. The search engine accepts either complete URL’s or multiple keywords.
