Hi,
<p>I spend a lot of time programming Magsbot, but I don't seem to get around
to writing a lot of scripts. It would certainly be nice if there were more
people writing them, so....if anyone is interested, I'd be willing to give
some classes on how to program Magsbot, in order to encourage other people
to write scripts and make them public.&nbsp; If you're interested, please
<a href="mailto:magine at turtleflight.com">write me</a>. Thanks! :0

what's wrong with an Html post? (Personally I can't tell any difference in
the two)

Ohh god.. not this agin.. I don't think I could take reading *another* flame
war over HTML.... everybody just get the hell over it and let people do
whatever the fuck they want to. Let's all piss and moan like 2nd graders
over something so trivial it's pointless!!! GET A LIFE!!! If all you can do
is sit arround a bitch over html posts, then I pitty you.

Geez explain it jerme before you flame the ignorant. =P Not that being
ignorant is bad.

In Europe, many people have to pay for their Internet service by the
megabyte. It's not a one-time payment like in North America. HTML takes up
more space than plain text, so please respect the cultural difference and
post only in Plain text.

no, weirdo gnome, it's not trivial! HTML posts allow for being infected with
all kinds of viruses, worms, etc because ppl like MS started using HTML in
NNTP posts. NNTP does not support HTML. HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language)
has it's own transfer protocol, HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol). No
other transfer protocol should be used to transfer HTML messages. Also, this
might explain why HTML is bad, kitten. To avoid trouble, just don't post in
HTML, and everyone will be happy :-))

according to your own definition, you're a retard... if you don't want to
accept that HTML shouldn't be used with NNTP, then just shut up.

Unlike those who are flaming you for posting in HTML, I would be
interested in taking one of these classes - how detailed would they
be?

i sure can tell a difference! my newsreader is old (i use it intentionally, it was designed in the Windows 3.1 era) and has no idea what an
HTML post is. i dont see the size of a post, and i'm on 56K... so i'd really like it if everybody just stuck with plaintext. plus, HTML
posts can contain viruses.

maybe you learned something today... =)

Degree of detail would depend on what the people attending wanted. When
would be a good time? Saturdays? Some weekday evening?

Whatever, but please take the HTML flame war to another topic, okay?

Ok. Why not? I'm interested too. A good time would be a Saturday
afternoon, CST. :) That's 10 p.m. VRT to 2 p.m. VRT.

I like the bot very much, and here's a suggestion for a future version:
MySQL support! I tryed it, but it didn't work :-(( to have MySQL would be
great, as it's very fast and easy to integrate with web applications, so you
could have the bot interact with webpages...

Monday nights would be best for me - I don't have to go in until 9:30 on
Tuesdays, so if you're asking my opinion, that's when I'd say :)

I should add that Saturday mornings (10am to 12am VRT) would also be a good
time, as I'd be able to find some time when I won't be disturbed.

Theoretically, you should be able to connect to a MySQL database using Magsbot,
if you have the right connection string (see
http://www.able-consulting.com/ADO_Conn.htm#ODBCDriverForMySQL). But I don't
have a remote database to test on...

Try this in Magsbot (immediate mode F5) to open a mySQL database. Substitute
your own appropriate values for username, password and database name, of course.
I have no idea if it will work, but it should in theory. :) Do please let me
know!

DBACTIVE 0;
DBPROVIDER "";
$svr="db1.database.com";
at p=3306;
at opt=131072;
$db="mydb";
$u="myUsername";
$pw="myPassword";
DBCONNECT
$fmt["Driver={mySQL};Server=%s;Port=%s;Option=%s;Stmt=;Database=%s;Uid=%s;Pwd=%s;",$svr, at p, at opt,$db,$u,$pw];

DBSQL "";
DBACTIVE 1
