in thread New blood

I hide the list of all users in Newest Nodes, with Newest Nodes Settings. It's not really worth to display them there imo, as just a new user in itself is not an even I want to check out. If a new user posts a node or talks in the chatterbox, I can notice that directly. If the user writes stuff to his homenode, you're supposed to be able to notice that from Recently Updated Home Nodes, but sadly that node includes all new users, even if they don't touch their homenode. Also, if I really wanted to see a list of recent users, I can always Super Search for them.

Update 2008-06-18: after some nudging, tye has found the problem with the Recently Updated Home Nodes page so now newly created users won't autmatically show up in the list. (Users created before 2008-16-17 are still on the list till they scroll out, we can't fix this retroactively.)

Chatterbox?
[Corion]: GrandFather: Ah, (hardware) APIs - I have a similar situation with Chrome and its API... It is fairly underdocumented and I guess I have to hunt...
[Corion]: ... down supposedly working code to find out what I'm supposed to do
[GrandFather]: I haven't any "working code" to inspect! I have to find ways to generate reference signals then check the numbers I get at the far end match.
[GrandFather]: That's ok when the signal is a voltage, but there are three axis accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers in these things! A little invention is needed at times!
[Corion]: GrandFather: Yeah, in that aspect, hardware is far more a black box than software
[GrandFather]: Oh, and the manufacturer tells lies too! I'm sure they don't mean to, but I know for sure some of the stuff they say is just wrong. It's possible they don't understand what we are asking, but that's not a good look either
[Corion]: GrandFather: Ah, unit testing hardware is fun, especially when the hardware is uncalibrated ...
[GrandFather]: Us: "What scaling do we need to apply to the numbers from the SDK for the wibble?". Them: "Oh, the numbers from the SDK for the wibble are already correct, they don't need scaling"
