Hook into Wikipedia using Java and the MediaWiki API | Integrating Stuff The Mediawiki API makes it possible for web developers to access, search and integrate all Wikipedia content into their applications. Given that Wikipedia is the ultimate online encyclopedia, there are dozens of use cases in which this might be useful. I used to post a lot of articles about using the webservice APIS of third party sites on this blog. This is going to be another post like that. This post describes how to use the Java Wikipedia API to fetch and format the contents of a Wikipedia article. The Wikipedia API makes it possible to interact with Wikipedia/Mediawiki through a webservice instead of the normal browserbased web interface. We cover a basic use case: getting the contents of the “Web service” article. To fetch the contents for this article, the following url suffices: A request to this url will return an xml document which includes the current wiki markup for the page titled “Web service”. together with the following dependency: <!

Ubuntu Hardy Heron (Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Server Version 1.0 Author: Falko Timme <ft [at] falkotimme [dot] com> Last edited 04/24/2008 This tutorial shows how to set up an Ubuntu Hardy Heron (Ubuntu 8.04 LTS) based server that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters: Apache web server (SSL-capable), Postfix mail server with SMTP-AUTH and TLS, BIND DNS server, Proftpd FTP server, MySQL server, Courier POP3/IMAP, Quota, Firewall, etc. This tutorial is written for the 32-bit version of Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, but should apply to the 64-bit version with very little modifications as well. I will use the following software: Web Server: Apache 2.2 with PHP 5.2.4 and Ruby Database Server: MySQL 5.0 Mail Server: Postfix DNS Server: BIND9 FTP Server: proftpd POP3/IMAP: I will use Maildir format and therefore install Courier-POP3/Courier-IMAP. In the end you should have a system that works reliably, and if you like you can install the free webhosting control panel ISPConfig (i.e., ISPConfig runs on it out of the box). 1 Requirements

Working With the "One-Second" Rule What is the "One-Second Rule?" The following condition in the Amazon Web Services license agreement often causes confusion or concern: You may make calls at any time that the Amazon Web Services are available, provided that you [...] do not exceed 1 call per second per IP address [...] Without the "one-second rule," Amazon's servers would be overwhelmed and unable to keep up with the demand on them. What, Me Worry? Often developers worry about what will happen if they occasionally make more than one query per second so they design complicated systems to prevent their programs from every making two calls less than a second apart. What Happens When You Exceed One Call Per Second? What happens when you regularly exceed the "one call per second" limit? How can I Download Everything? Many affiliate programs provide data feeds. Caching A2S Results You can cache the information so it doesn't have to be downloaded as often. Simple Cache If there is a result in the database, it looks at the timestamp.

Introduction Adapted from Explaining OAuth, published on September 05, 2007 by Eran Hammer-Lahav A Little Bit of History OAuth started around November 2006, while Blaine Cook was working on the Twitter OpenID implementation. He got in touch with Chris Messina looking for a way to use OpenID together with the Twitter API to delegate authentication. They met with David Recordon, Larry Halff, and others at a CitizenSpace OpenID meeting to discuss existing solutions. Larry was looking into integrating OpenID for Ma.gnolia Dashboard Widgets. In April 2007, a Google group was created with a small group of implementers to write a proposal for an open protocol. What is it For? Many luxury cars today come with a valet key. Every day new websites launch offering services which tie together functionality from other sites. This is the problem OAuth solves. OAuth and OpenID Who is Going to Use it? Everyone. Is OAuth a New Concept? No. Is It Ready? OAuth Core 1.0, the main protocol, was finalized in December.
