So I set up a page, and set my computer to reading the RSS outputs every hour. The good news is that that has happened more or less continuously. The bad news was that junk accumulated, and downloading was slow.
So I've done two new main things:
- Pruned the initial download. I had already reduced the initial offerring to just two days of comments. But I still downloaded details of all threads and commenters. More than half the commenters listed had only ever made one comment. They include of course various spammers, and typos. So I removed them, unless their comment was in the last month. I also divided the threads into current and dormant (no activity in two months). Current are downloaded at start; dormant can be added (button), or will come automatically if data more than two months ago is requested. It's faster, if not fast.
- I've added a facility where a string is shown that you can add to the URL to get it to go to the current state. That includes selected index items (commenter etc) and months. The main idea is that you can store a URL which will go straight to a list of your own comments over some period (remembering that each month takes a while to download). Examples below.
As with my blogroll, I've included blogs with broad readership; not necessarily the ones I recommend.
Here are some examples of selections:
Stoat, last two months (two months takes a few seconds to load)
My comments at WUWT, last two months
