360voice Is Gone
While working on a new theme for my Reid’s for Fun site, I flipped over to my 3v sub-domain to check something. While there, I noticed that all the user bars were failing with an API error. I quickly jumping over to the 360voice site and found it dead…

DISH CINEMA Userbar (Updated ... again)
I was doing a bit of clean up and, wouldn’t you know it, my DISH pay-per-view (PPV) userbar broke again. Apparently this is going to be an ongoing battle. It is good for me as I don’t spend a lot of time coding anymore…

Subtle Updates and Other Historical Back Steps
I spent the last two days watching football and fixing up a few odds & ins around my sites. Probably the biggest change is the top menu. I’ve tried to match the style across each major site, including font and minor format changes…

DISH CINEMA Userbar (Updated)
As part of my periodic check of my userbar code, I found that DISH once again changed their pay-per-view (PPV) web page causing my DISH PPV userbar to break. I’ve fixed it again and it now displays a pretty good choice of featured movies. Although events are still included, I dropped them due to …

Weather Mashup
Although I like my existing weather userbar, I really wanted an easier city search. I decided to stick with NOAA and the NWS for now and ran across a nice all in one weather page with an XML link…

Quick and Dirty Football Scores Userbar
Today, like most Fall Sunday’s, is a great day to watch Football. It was fun watching San Fransisco play, but I often hack around on the computer during games. Fortunately there is plenty of time between commercials and time-outs to work on code…

Dish PPV Highlights Userbar
Sometime back I created an animated userbar that showed the current PPV movies on Dish. Sadly, soon afterwards Dish changed their support pages to require a login, breaking my script. Sure, I could log in to get the information, but that kind of defeats the purpose…

Weather Service Userbar
Between blogging about digital TV (it’s all over) and playing Halo 2 (finished campaign on legendary) I’ve been working on a new dynamic userbar. This time, I’m generating a weather userbar showing the current conditions and temperature. I’ve been wanting to pull weather data for awhile an…

Updated Analog to Digital TV Count Down Userbar
Well, the original date (Feb 17th) has come and gone and my Userbar is showing 33 days past. Since the conversion has been delayed till June 12, I thought I’d better update my application for those still brave enough to use it. I completely forgot to use my coupon for a converter box so it has e…

What’s on DISH PPV Dynamic Userbar
This is probably one of the sillier experiments I’ve done. I’ve put together a dynamic userbar that displays the current Pay Per View (PPV) offerings on DISH Network. My daughter was interested in renting a movie and I thought I’d check out what was on PPV…

360voice Badge Genre Scores Userbar
I don’t normally do two posts in one night, but I put together a new Dynamic Userbar and I just have to share! This one uses GetTagScores from FshGuy's API. It displays each genre score and, if you have a badge in that genre, it will also display it instead of your gamer picture…

Minor Fixes on my Dynamic Userbars
I noticed a few errors with my 360voice Dynamic Userbars today, so I decided I should probably fix them. One was with my watched list. I limit the list to 20, but it wasn’t actually working properly for users not watching anyone…

360voice Dynamic Userbars Launched
As much as I use the 360voice.com data, I thought it only fitting to give back. So, today I launched 360voice Dynamic Userbars. If you’re a 360voice user and like userbars, show your pride by adding one of these images to your forum signatures. For example, here is my userbar: As I’ve said bef…

Analog to Digital TV Count Down Userbar
I just realized that the US has just one year left till all the Analog broadcast signals are turned off. As someone who still doesn’t own a digital—or even HD—TV, I’ve created this Userbar countdown to remind me of that fact: Good thing I have satellite. ;-) You can check out my other si…

Userbars moved to Flickr
Due to issues I’ve been having with ImageShack, I’ve moved some of my userbars over to Flickr. So far, things appear to be working just fine. Oddly, my ImageShack images are working again, but others are now broke. I’m thinking something was wrong with servers, or they are doing maintenance…

Well, it appears that userbars.com isn’t on-line anymore. [frown] So, I’ve moved my Userbars over to www.userbars.org. You can view my, limited, userbar collection there as well. If you’re looking for a userbar, I’m more then willing to help out (just IM me or add a comment here)…
