"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain

"Only 50 such scans have ever been done."

Look at what happened with DNA sequencing[1]. Linear extrapolation isn't always the best predictor of progress.

This is a good question.

I totally wake up every morning and think, "I can't wait to check my email!"

The title of this article is "Don't Use OAuth 1 for your API" instead of "Don't Use OAuth for your API"

It wasn't until it was pointed out to the author that the article was completely incorrect.

I'll second that on http://cantenna.com - Jason and the team there have been providing an excellent source of these antenna's for almost a decade. (I can vouch for the integrity of the product because we were one of the biggest consumers of their product in the day on my site http://netstumbler.com)

I assume that the interest in this is back because of Marius Milner the Google employee who built the Netstumbler software http://www.netstumbler.com / http://stumbler.net is the suspected engineer who wrote the Google software that has been in the news about the mapping of access points by Google streets cars.

I was having trouble using this on Firefox 13 (beta). I keep getting "Invalid referer." dialog boxes when entering the artist in and three "Invalid referer." dialog boxes when going to a Artist Report. The only information loaded on the Artist Report is the Biography.

Just loaded the site in Chrome and works great.

Hey gmig, thanks for checking out Beluga. I just tried in Firefox 13, and I couldn't reproduce the issue. Do you have anything that could be messing with your referrer, like addons? On api calls, as a safety precaution, we check to make sure the browser referrer is correct.

-----


I don't have any add-ons/plugins that change or block the referrer. I disabled the add-ons/plugins I did have and still got the error. Though I created a new profile under Firefox 13 and the site worked fine on the new profile. Must be something wrong with my regular profile then.

Glad to hear it's working for you. Thanks again for your feedback :)
