My-BIC = Easy Ajax (Another AJAX Framework on today) Mar 2 2006

My-BIC = Easy Ajax

The What

After tiring of over hyped ajax frameworks trying to hide the guts that make ajax programming fun I decided to share my recipe for easy to make ajax applications where you still have control over everything, but the setup of it all is handled for you. This is a basic state of mind system rather than a framework. I offer you four files and a design pattern that allows you to focus on making things happen rather than setting things up. This is designed for PHP5 but can be written for php4 if people are interested.

advAJAX / AdvancedAJAX 1.0 Mar 2 2006

How vSocial Went from 0 to 71 Million Page Views in (about) 120 Days | Ajax Blog Feb 27 2006

I’ve been using vSocial more and more lately to watch clips and my main man Shanti recently got a chance for a full-blown interview and posted it over on Ajax Blog. You should definitely check it out since they’ve been scaling massively lately and you can watch cool videos on their site.

We wanted to pick the brains of the vSocial founding team and learn about: starting a new social networking site, building a large-scale, high-bandwidth web app, developing with Ajax, building traffic/buzz, life hacks, and more.

The numbers speak for themselves: vSocial has gone from 0 to 71M monthly page views, 270K unique daily visitors and 45M videos served a month … all in about 120 days!

Brad Webb and Mark Sigal of vSocial were kind enough to sit down with Ajax Blog for the following interview. Enjoy!

Can you describe how the company or concept behind came about?

The core platform behind vSocial was developed over the past three years (with vSocial’s other co-founder, Brent Oesterblad) as part of a general purpose social media platform for uploading and sharing pictures, music, movies and other rich media content items. Looking at the market mid-last year, it was clear that Internet video was about to hit in a big way, and we felt that we had a lot of “secret sauce” to bring to the equation so we opted to focus there. The underlying platform is quite feature rich, and we expect to roll more of it out into the market in the coming months.

Logged in as . Logout – WordPress Support forum saves the day. Oct 8 2005

So… I was having a brutal bug with WordPress seeming to think that I was logged in when I wasn’t. I tried everything I could think of, turning off all plugins, trying different themes, looking at various database settings. Then, of course, I finally had to just Google what I was looking for. And lo and behold, the exact answer to the problem:

Logged in as . Logout — WordPress Support

Logged in as . Logout

try checking your user list to see if you have a blank user added somehow?

That was the answer. I had a blank user in the Users list somehow. I gave the user a user name, then demoted to level 0 so that I could delete.

And now, you can actually comment, sign in and also use the live search functionality on Ajax Blog now! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
