in reply to Random NonHome Nodes

I added some options to this script to allow you to select which sections get skipped over. The folowing params can be used to select sections to skip.

news=skip
meditations=skip
discussions=skip
cufp=skip
poetry=skip
code=skip
craft=skip
sopw=skip

In addition, the 'homexp' param takes an integer value that will skip any users homenode whos xp is less than the value. It also accepts 'ALL' to skip all homenodes.

If no params are set, the following will be assumed 'homenodes=ALL&news=skip&poetry=skip'

Here are some examples:

I personally like that last one, because it avoids the baren homenodes, the outofdate newsfeed, and skips the poetry (which I have nothing against, I just need to be in a special mood to appreciate that particular craft) So, I have added the following to my personal nodelet:
<A HREF="http://perlmonks.thepen.com/scripts/randomnode.pl?news=skip&p +oetry=skip&homexp=200">Custom Random Node</A>
Which shows up in my side column as: Custom Random Node
