Mars,IP Address Logging,Tag Extractor

So, I made a tag extractor for wordpress’ blogs but now that I think about it, I should probably do my larger project(wiki analytics) because even though I can extract tags and search for multiple of them, getting a reasonable number of blog posts would still be a challenge and without numerous blog posts most search queries for multiple tags would return 0 matches.

I accesed my blog using a python script but my view count today is still zero, weird. Did wordpress knew from my IP address I was the author?

Thoughts about my new website…

I’ll fix the issue with getting files from other webpages to my host by doing it locally(client-side)

This will release my webpage bandwidth. When you think about it, even if doing it from PHP worked, someone someday would request analytics for a huge file that wouldn’t be feasible to get to my host. By requesting the client to download the file I can also request it to send and/or analyze specific parts of a file(as opposed to getting a whole 1GB movie I could just ask for the first hundred bytes and conclude it is the header of a video and should therefore receive the TAG “video” for example)

Another idea that hit me though is to have a search-engine that could filter multiple tags on wordpress posts. It would still require a user(likely blog owner) to run an open-source Python script to extract tags from posts and upload them to my index. But it would probably be easier than going straight to my auto-tagger/analytics project.

The question though is: is there any demand for either of these websites?

I can see myself using the analytics website IF it could give significant insight into videos and/or foreign accents in text. But those are algos I haven’t developed(not even drafts).

A website that allowed me to filter “Short story” AND “Fiction”? Hmmmm
I guess the tag Flash Fiction already does that…(combine those two)… Well… I guess there is no tag unifying “Fantasy” and “Short story”… but I would need lots of posts to get any decent results with a multiple tags search engine…

The promising side is that neither would take lots of my time, so there is no reason to not do both if my internet connection allows.(I need to look at Python’s and PHP’s online references to code)
