A Journal about the experiences I have developing little applications in C#, Perl, Html and Javascript and talking about things new things that I use. Always Geeky; Always Nerdy; Always poor Grammer!

I am a Software Analyst Developer working in Southport, England but living in Liverpool. I develop mainly in C# and ASP.Net. I have been developing comercial software for several years now. I maintain this site (hosted at SwitchMedia UK) as a way of exploring new technologies (such as AJAX) and just generally talking about techie geek issues. This site is developed through a host of Perl scripts and a liberal use of Javascript. I enjoy experimenting with new technologies and anything that I make I host here.

AJAX Technorati Tagger

My First AJAX Application is now up (here).

Some thanks must go out to Bill Bercik whos sample AJAX application I looked at and used a smidging of code from (The AJAX object factory).

The way to use the application is to as follows:
  • Enter some text into the first page. This text has to be more that a couple of words.
  • Click "Submit", this will call the yahoo web service and present the user with a list of "potential" tags for technorati. (There will be a hook in to technorati here at some point in the future).
  • Select the tags you wish to use and click next (this next step might take a while).
  • When on the next page it will give the user a list of related keywords (again from Yahoo!), [NOTE: Selecting the search results is not nesecarry because it doesn"t do anything just yet].
  • Click "Finish", to generate the link list that looks similar to mine at the bottom of this blog entry.

Anyway all comments, hate mail etc is accepted :)

ps. There are a lot of Bugs to be ironed out. :)
