markpasc : End referrer abuse in Radio. Done. I thought it was cute a while back to have Radio use my subscription list as the referrer (which is at least compliant with the letter of RFC 2616, if not quite in the spirit), but really it’s not: you don’t need to know it, and you can’t do anything useful with it. I doubt that you really want to go pawing through your user agent logs to find out whether or not I’m reading your feed, so I skipped that part: I’m just another anonymous Radio 8 in the user agent list, and the “-” I always should have been in the referrers.
deus_x : An end to my referrer abuse (in AmphetaDesk). Done. Since I didn’t want to bother with the user agent fix, I just edited
AmphetaDesk/lib/AmphetaDesk/WWW.pm, and in
sub get commented out one line:
# $req->referer( get_setting("user_http_referer") );
Adam Kalsey : Patching Aggie’s referrer. Um. Not quite done. I need to look at whether #develop, the open source C# IDE that Adam says he used, actually means that you can use it to compile C# with just the (20MB) .NET runtime that I already have, or whether you actually need the (131MB) SDK. It would be nice to be able to compile my own Aggie, since there’s a ton of wonderful stuff that’s in Aggie’s CVS but not yet in a release, but a 131MB download over dialup is an absolute dealbreaker.
