Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

As I've seen a lot of people wondering about other EVOKE agents in their area, would anyone be interested in an EVOKE agent map where agents can go add their locations and a little note?

I've got something that I can repurpose perfectly for this.

EDIT: And here it is: http://redct.info/evoke_map

I'm realizing now, that somebody already did what I was thinking since a week and still didn't manage to actualize. Thanks for that work.

Actually what I had in my mind was a slightly different solution, as I was looking for a way to get an automatic update directly from EVOKE's engine, without asking agents to re-sign up. Yesterday I was looking around for APIs which could make it possible, but I'm a noob with Ning and I couldn't figure out any realistic solution.

I read here that you're a developer of EVOKE tools, then I would ask: is there any chance to query for agents' main info and location, to be fed via XML or something similar? This way, locations could be shown in realtime; in addition, those infos would be mashable and that would be very useful to develop new mission tools.

Personally, I'm preparing maps as well for a couple of missions I proposed on my blog (here and here). I'd be happy to have some help or just feedbacks, given my average-low scripting skills.
You need to update your apache configuration to add index.php to the list of index pages :-D
Weird, not sure why that un-configured itself.

The agent map (http://evoke.redct.info/evoke_map/) now has all 9700+ agents added directly from the Ning database. Unfortunately, there's no real way to query as the user DB dump has to be gotten from an account on the network with admin status. Plus, after that, the data needs geocoding and some reformatting to work with the map.

This is very nice! Thank you Nathaniel.

I noted there're multiple entries for a same user, maybe the user name and/or location should be checked before placing a new marker. But it is really a minor issue.
Again, for mashing-up purposes, I would ask if it is possible to export periodically an XML from the database, so that it would be accessible to other developers. It could be automatically done just by attaching the script to some recurring function.
If you're too busy for it, just let me know the name of the fields where main user infos are stored, and I'll write a basic XML exporter (would PHP be ok?). In this case you should just complete the script with database name, user and pwd (I know I can't ask you those), tables' name, and the path to save the xml.

Please let me know if you think it might be feasible; it would be very useful to me, for a couple of "missions" I'm working on and, generally, for further developments.

Thanks again
The main problem is there's no database to access; you have to do it manually from the Ning backend. I would let you have access to an automated feed of that export, but it has emails and so on, so I'm not really comfortable letting that loose.

This is really cool.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
