Auto reload the juke main page
« on: August 02, 2013, 04:58:24 PM »
Hats off to all you good folks that are responsible for keeping the juke oiled and singin'!!

If any of you weenie listeners have the Jukes main page automatically reload every few minutes, would you share how you have your page configured?

Thanks,
bel

WOW!!! Just checked....9 listeners representing 5 countries.

I've been meaning to post about the same issue.

Earlier the Weenie Juke page used to reload for each song, but now it doesn't seem to do so anymore. You can, of course, reload it manually, but this takes a while (patience isn't a virtue of the internet age  :-X ).
You can, of course, look at the song listings on the Loud City page, but I much preferred the old weenie page, with more information and links to Amazon.

Cheers

Pan

The juke auto refresh feature was a victim of 'weenie sequestration' (weeniestration?) back in November 2012, when we were trying to figure out where all the monthly bandwidth was going. Since it turned out not to be the issue, it might be time to discuss turning it back on again. I recall that at the time we thought nobody would notice. It only took 8 months, you guys are sharp!  :P

Pan, the link to Amazon is still there, no change from the previous version. Click on the 'buy' button and it will take you to the amazon page. Sometimes it gets it wrong due to contextual ambiguity in search terms. It is what it is, at this point, and will get better over time as the external servers figure out that if you're coming from weenie you're probably more interested in the black Bill Gaither, rather than the modern gospel white guy with the preternaturally white teeth and a big church.

I'd assumed that the failure to auto-refresh was a further symptom of my computer's senile decay. Glad to hear that it was actually external to my hard drive.

Is the "auto-refresh" currently operating?

Looks like not.  If Rivers does not get to it soon (he modified the pages last, so I'd rather he modify the code) I'll look into it.

Thanks for the reminder.

OK, Auto Refresh is now back.  Rivers was hiding the switch from me -- in the most obvious place.   :P

Apologies, I stone completely forgot to switch it on after we discussed it last week.

That's a symptom of my crazy life at the moment, straddling Denver & Austin, dealing with logistics, real estate and my day job. Not to mention aging, slightly.

Slack now has the key to instant juke-now-playing auto refreshment. Since it made sense when we were redoing the juke pages, and we were experiencing mysterious bandwidth issues at the same time, we decided to make it a simple switch so we can turn it (and a couple of other things that could affect bandwidth) on or off in one place without code modifications. I'm glad we did.
