This site is build on openstandards with opensource software and an openmind. That is why all content is licenced under the open content licence.
Like Vote up/Down and Fivestar it uses Voting API for stroring data, so one can use for example Views to display the results. But unlike these other fine alternatives, Rate has been designed with more flexibility in mind.
Using VoteUp/Down or Fivestar might still be the best choice for your use-case, but you should at least checkout Rate. One can see the vodcast at youtube (be sure to select 720p).
Engeland. Mooie land, Geweldige landschap. Eeuwenoude gewoonte. Sterke cultuur. Maar van koffie hebben ze geen verstand.
Toen ik een espresso bestelde, keken ze al moeilijk. Ik kreeg de twee slokken koffie in een soepkom. En om de grap compleet te maken, vroegen ze of ik er melk bij wou...
Nope, geweldig land maar geen van koffie geen kaas gegeten.
We started the smaller unconference Dev camp because we want to facilitate smaller groups to come together and work on targeted items. In the Netherlands we also have the DrupalJam’s. The last Jam had nearly 300 attendees and with the growing demand of Drupal services, this conference will grow for some time, 400 attendees in half a year is realistic.
To put this in perspective, a DrupalJam now is as big as a European DrupalCon only 4 years ago. And while having a big local conference is a good thing for networking and promotion, there is a growing need to get smaller more focussed “unofficial" camps to get better communication and more interaction. So DOP decided to facilitate a smaller camp with only developers, laptops, wifi, a nice location, tents, a BBQ, some beer and water-pistols. All the ingredients for having a good Drupal camp!
And we did have a good time, the weather was very nice, lots of people brought local beer and while there was no program, we actually did a lot. That is, some just wanted to site and discuss, other wanted to learn and share and some just wanted to code.
For an impression of the camp, see this collection.
And this is what I wrote about that domain-name back in 2006:
And I still think it is true today. Even if Time gave an excellent keynote at DrupalCon SF. Drup.al is a funny domain-name. Demoing a nice module, that is all it is. And when the Albanian NIC was any more open back in 2001 when I registered drupal.org I am sure I would have looked at drup.al as well. Nice domain name, but search engines are the new DNS, Google is the new Bind. Funny name, drup.al. But most outsiders already think that the name Drupal by itself is funny enough.
Yes, the very fast Opera browser on the iPhone proxies all request! In normal language, every webpage you visit from your iPhone with the opera browser is send towards Opera. Thereby, they get al the information from you. If you submit a form, it is send to Opera. If you search in Google, it is send to opera. If you login to a website, your password is send to Opera!
They wil claim the need to do this because of the prorpietary way they handle images and HTML to speed up a website. And it is a speedy browser:
I think part of the speed comes form the fact that they proxy all traffic and some funky stuff with preloading images. However, it is absurd that a browser gets /all/ the data I send, all the websites I visit, all the passwords I submit, all the search queries I do. It might not be spyware but sure gets close to this.
How did I found out?
Then I visited Facebook form my iMac and saw:
Then I did a test on my own host and grepped the logging:
Ans here is the code:
% Note: This output has been filtered.

I am not the first person to finds out about it, see for example pcworld.com. But I am the person to tell you that you should be aware that you send all your data cleartext towards Opera when using the app (https is fine however). And I am the person to tell you I will not use the app anymore. Bad Opera! Bad! No cookie.
