Should be running now. Looks like the crond daemon hung. So if you tweeted between 2 pm and 6:45 you'll need to tweet it again. Sorry for the inconvenience.


Still not working (tweeted more then 20 minutes ago)

It has taken all my test tweets. What does your tweet say? Perhaps it is a format problem?

Same problem here. I tried to repost one of my entries from June, that somehow got missing. After 30min there was still nothing.

I now tried it again with the language tag behind it and now the bot got the post. But I'm only registered for one language and never used the language tag after registration. :?
It's sad that the bot desn't reply anymore, because it might have been able to tell you these kind of difficulties?

One of the many problems with the bot is that it will not go back and read tweets older than 5 minutes. So if it stops, you have to retweet again.

BTW, if anyone is interested in trying to add an audit trail to the bot so it knows which tweets it has processed or not, please feel free to look at the code on github.

I know that. All of those tweets were after you said the daemon had been fixed. I have tweeted again 7 minutes ago and it didn't pick that up either.

Re: an audit trail: Could we use the database (I assume there is an existing one), that is, modify it? I'll look into it later if so.

Thanks, by the way, for your work on the bot.

Yes, it currently uses a MySQL DB. With a running system you'd have to supply a SQL file with the correct fields and tables as well as putting them in the SQL creation code, since I'd have to patch the live DB.

Also, are you sure the problem is not in the tweets being displayed on the website, rather then in being picking up?

OK, I just tweeted a modifided version of your tweets and it picked it up.

@langchallenge #watched 1 min of "Test (C36)" #it

@langchallenge #watched 2 min of "Test" #it


Interestingly it replied to me also, which I thought was broken due to twitter making changes to the API. But only the first one showed up on the scoreboard.

It might be a display problem. But it seems very odd that one got displayed and the other got a reply. I'm doing some checking now, and I'll log into the DB to see what is actually in the tables.

EDIT: No didn't actually get a reply. That was me being stupid. However, now both tweets have shown up on my display. Doing more testing.
