Tagyu Now Allows Registration

Published in Web Development on Thursday, December 1st, 2005

Thanks to a heads up from evariste, a little added value to the retrotag posts from the other day. Tagyu now allows user registration, which means that, once registered, you can hit there servers more than once a minute.

The code has been updated with a spot for your Tagyu username and password, and now it sleeps for one second no matter if you are hitting Yahoo! or Tagyu. I figured that it's better to be polite.

Anyways, if you were holding back because you didn't feel like waiting 14000 seconds for the script to complete, now you don't have to!

Comments and Feedback

Wow, you're quick. I just posted the registration form while on vacation and was going to email you today to let you know.

Heh, well, it was a reader who spotted it! It is going to prove useful to folks, I would imagine. I've already integrated it into the admin for our CMS. Just preparing some Ajax 'insert new tag' magic to go along with it.

I am finding that I often need tag suggestions, so Tagyu is proving to be worthwhile :-)

SiteUptime Web Site Monitoring Service

Sitepoint's web devlopment books have helped me out on many occasions both for finding a quick solution to a problem but also to level out my knowlegde in weaker areas (JavaScript, I'm looking at you!). I am recommending the following titles from my bookshelf:

The Principles Of Successful Freelancing

I started freelancing by diving in head first and getting on with it. Many years and a lot of experience later I was still able to take away some gems from this book, and there are plenty I wish I had thought of beforehand. If you are new to freelancing and have a lot of questions (or maybe don't know what questions to ask!) do yourself a favor and at least check out the sample chapters.

The Art & Science Of JavaScript

The author line-up for this book says it all. 7 excellent developers show you how to get your JavaScript coding up to speed with 7 chapters of great theory, code and examples. Metaprogramming with JavaScript (chapter 5 from Dan Webb) really helped me iron out some things I was missing about JavaScript. That said each chapter really helped me to develop my JavaScript skills beyond simple Ajax calls and html insertion with libs like JQuery.

The PHP Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks

Like the other books listed here, this provides a great reference for the PHP developer looking to have the right answers from the right people at their fingertips. I tend to pull this off the shelf when I need to delve into new territory and usually find a workable solution to keep development moving. This only needs to happen once and you recoup the price of the book in time saved from having to develop the solution or find the right pattern for getting the job done..
