Tyler too eager ?
« on: May 31, 2015, 11:59:38 am »
Ranch posted saying that Tyler is posting a lot of stuff and I was thinking the same. I know a couple of the sources double up stories some times so I could remove one of those.

The main reason she is posting more is that the replacement for Robots.net (Robohub) is posting a lot more that we used to get. These are really full articles. In fact they probably post enough from that one source to keep us up to date.

Any thoughts everyone ?

I don't know about the others, but I don't like Tyler's posts which are size of one or two short sentences with link which leads to exactly the same content. I get interested, but when I want wider article, I get disappointed.

But if it is too much work around it, I'll live, it is not the end of the world anyway.

Well, it's hard to say. Tyler always gives us something to talk about, but yeah, recently I do get the feeling we're being bombarded with similar stories over and over and that doesn't stimulate me to look into it.

It may of course not be Tyler's fault that Google is more actively developing stuff, and that everyone left and right is chiming in to the robot apocalypse hymn, but the more fleeting the news gets, the less attention I'll give it, until I won't pay any attention to it and just work on my own AI instead of talk about others'. *gasp*

It is good when robots like Tyler may run amok from time to time. That's how important improvements may be discovered.  It is like Tyler is just asking to learn how to handle more.

One simple solution may be to put each article in it's own div with a height and an overflow CSS setting.  This code listing was tested to work.  However, it is meant for discussion purposes only.

Code: [Select]
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<style>
#article {
    background-color: #f8f8f8;
    height: 88px;
    overflow: auto;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<p>The overflow property may be use to handle the content of an article that exceeds a certain height.</p>
<p>overflow:auto</p>
<div id="article">
<p>
My long article content goes here, and here, and goes on
and on here, and continues to go on and on here and here, 
and continues to go on and on here and here...
</p>
<p>
And continues to go on and on here and here,  and continues
to go on and on here and here,  and continues to go on
and on here and here,  and continues to go on and on here
and here...
</p>
<p>
And continues to go on and on here and here,  and continues
to go on and on here and here,  and continues to go on and
on here and here,  and continues to go on and on here and
here,  and continues to go on and on here and here...
</p>
</div>
</body>
</html>

It is fairly simple to remove this markup, if Tyler ever develops an alternate means, such as summarizing the article text.  Other modifications are possible to integrate this markup into the homepage. It is always a good idea to check it in all browsers, etc.

Thanks 8pla, I think this is more about quantity than how it's presented.

I'll wait to see if a few more people comment. In the mean time I think I will turn off one of the duplicating ones.

The articles Tyler links to always have a link where you can read the full article. I very rarely use her recommendations unless the subject matter is particularly unique, as I see most of these stories in my email inbox anyway.

Its just when its nothing but Tyler over and over again, and wonder where everyone went. :)
A bit from here, a bit from there, and bring it together and see the whole picture.

How making Tyler more eager?

Example:

@Tyler:  How are you?
