Why developers matter in understanding the next wave of mobile computing.
Many people have written to me to point out that they still get duplicate entries in their user-agent table after using the GroupAgent trick I highlighted. To remove those, you need to use the HideAgent directive. Here is the list of HideAgent directives I have in my file: HideAgent rv:1.4 HideAgent 3.01 HideAgent 3.02 HideAgent 4.01 HideAgent 5.0 HideAgent 5.01 HideAgent 5.12 HideAgent 5.13 HideAgent 5.14 HideAgent 5.15 HideAgent 5.16 HideAgent 5.17 HideAgent 5.21 HideAgent 5.22 HideAgent 5.23 HideAgent 5.5 HideAgent 6.0 HideAgent 348NorthNews HideAgent Alcatel- HideAgent almaden.ibm.com/cs/crawler HideAgent AmphetaDesk HideAgent antibot HideAgent AppleWebKit HideAgent http://Ask.24x.Info/ HideAgent ASPseek HideAgent aspseek HideAgent augurfind HideAgent AvantGo HideAgent Awasu HideAgent Baiduspider HideAgent BarraHomeCrawler HideAgent BBot HideAgent BFS_method HideAgent Bilbo HideAgent Bison HideAgent Blazer HideAgent blo.gs HideAgent BlogBot HideAgent Blogdigger HideAgent Blogosphere HideAgent BlogPulse HideAgent BlogShares HideAgent Blogwise HideAgent boitho.com HideAgent [email protected] HideAgent [email protected] HideAgent BorderManager HideAgent brainoff.com/geoblog/ HideAgent www.business-socket.com HideAgent Camino HideAgent CE-Preload HideAgent Check and Get HideAgent china HideAgent China HideAgent CJNetworkQuality HideAgent cloakBrowser HideAgent combine HideAgent COMBINE HideAgent compatible) HideAgent CoolBot HideAgent CoologFeedSpider HideAgent CopyHunter HideAgent curl HideAgent DA HideAgent danux HideAgent Dattatec.com-Sitios-Top HideAgent daypopbot HideAgent DoCoMo HideAgent DTS HideAgent Ecosystem/development HideAgent EgotoBot HideAgent Elaine HideAgent EmailSiphon HideAgent Ericsson HideAgent ETS…Read More
I’ve been working on cleaning up my webalizer.conf file in order to get better statistics. Since I haven’t seen anyone posting the following information, I figured I would, since it might interest people who are using the Webalizer stats tool. Adding the following lines to your webalizer configuration file (webalizer.conf) will allow you to get much cleaner reporting of user-agents. GroupAgent Check&Get Program: Check&Get (Bookmark Manager) GroupAgent eXactSite Program: eXactSite (HTML authoring. stupid user!) GroupAgent FavOrg Program: FavOrg (Bookmark Manager) GroupAgent Fetch Program: Fetch (Offline browser) GroupAgent GetRight Program: GetRight (Download Manager) GroupAgent HTTrack Program: HTTrack (Website Copier) GroupAgent Lachesis Program: Packet Loss Report (ftp.intel.com) GroupAgent lachesis Program: Packet Loss Report (ftp.intel.com) GroupAgent MSFrontPage Programming: Microsoft FrontPage (stupid user!)

Behind the scene, however, I was busy rebuilding the site from the ground up. The new TNL.net was relaunched in late January 2003, about a month behind the schedule I had originally set. In this newsletter, I will explain why I relaunched it and how I went about it. The Genesis Since 1995, TNL.net was running on Microsoft Windows. Initially, the site was running on Windows NT, using Microsoft IIS to serve pages on the web. Prior to that, TNL.net had been running on a shared Linux box but none of the administration of that server was in my control. When it moved to its own environment, I looked at a number of options that would allow me to spend time developing the site, not necessarily administering the box. In late 2000, the site was upgraded to Windows 2000 and continued to run on this until recently. So why did I decided to change things? Unhappy with Microsoft The world in 1995 was very different from today’s world. In those days, administration of unix system…Read More
