LJ court-ordered tracking

>>Table: tracking
We've had police and other authorities have us track some users with criminal activities going on. This table records those actions, when the user's tracking attribute is turned on in the user table.

I was completely unaware that this went on until another user pointed it out to me today. I think we should be informed that LJ does this upfront, and we should be notified when we are being tracked.

md5 digest

I can't remember who it was; but someone a while ago had sent me a link to a website that I can learn how to create an md5 digest for sending the LJ password to the server. I'm programming in VB. Can anyone help?

More S2 updates

Bunch of S2 stuff just went into CVS. Notable:

-- boolean literals (whoops... forgot those earlier)
-- constructors (without arguments)
-- regression test directory & tool
-- tons of updates & cleanup in

From you should see how to make a runner. The entire test suite uses "main()" as the entry point when calling LJ::S2::run_code but it can be anything, including a object method (that's how it'll be when we're done) ... if you use run_code with an object method, the first argument has to be the '$this' hashref.

Current work is on making objects that can interpolate in strings (using something like Java's toString()). Also, though, I'm adding support to load an object from string data.. so fromString() essentially. This'll let us use such object as properties that the style configurator wizard can let people choose, so long as our configurator understands those types. So I guess fromString() is just a constructor with a string argument, but I don't think I'll be adding full constructor suppot... it's pretty pointless. The whole data structure will be passed in to begin with. This is a domain language, afterall.... it doesn't have to be fully general.

Words words. Back to programming. I'm just trying to program fast enough so I don't block martmart.

Friends View... Lastn View

Is there a simple way via the URL (read: GET) to limit the number of entries that your friends page, or your lastn page shows? Like a simple URL overide? I'm thinking something to the effect of or something like that. Or is it too tied into the style system to do that?
