Would you like a rare & valuable Cody mug?
« on: November 19, 2006, 08:04:41 AM »
Mouser has generously donated one rare & valuable Cody mug as a prize for a little contest...

It will go to our busiest typer.

Is this you?

GOE participants will get a chance to practice all those new productivity skills you have been learning.

As some may know, I have started a DonationCoder WhatPulse team.

For those that don't know what that is, I made a post awhile back about it.

Anybody that is part of the team will be elegible to win a Cody mug. (except me)

Anybody that isn't on the team yet, hurry up and join before the contest begins. I am giving you plenty of notice to get signed up and everything running correctly.

cody mug.jpgcody mug.jpgcody mug.jpgcody mug.jpgcody mug.jpgcody mug.jpgcody mug.jpgcody mug.jpgcody mug.jpgcody mug.jpg

At midnight on Saturday, November 25, 2006, NYC time, I will take a screenshot of the team page.

You will then have 7 days to be your most productive self and type as many keys as you can. No cheating please, you have to type them all yourself with your own 2 hands and/or feet. (or head)

To make this fair to new team members, only keystrokes made after I make the screenshot will count. Please have your WhatPulse client set up to make automatic pulses about once per hour or every 1000 keys.

The team member that has accumulated the most keystrokes by midnight on Saturday, December 2, 2006, NYC time, will recieve 1 rare & valuable Cody mug.

Anybody that would like to display their stats in a team banner in their signature, like mine, read my next post below for my official super easy to follow tutorial.

You may send me a private message on the forum to ask for individual help setting things up, if you need it. Don't be afraid of me, I don't bite and I am MEGA patient. :-*


At this time, the WhatPulse client is only available for Windows. (my appologies to Mac & Linux users)

Both WhatPulse and the banner site are run by the same guys.

Use the same name, email & pass for both.

I will explain how I did the banner I made for myself.

First, right click and save this image to your hard drive:



Now log in here:

http://pulse.offbeat-zero.net (make an account there first)

  • Click Upload a Background, on the left menu.
  • Click the Browse button and select the graphic I told you to save.
  • Type DonationCoder in the name box.
  • Click Submit.

Click Customize on the menu on the left and use these settings:



Click the Submit button.

Right above the settings box you will find the code you need to add to your signature.

Copy that.

Now...on the dc forum, at the top...

  • Click My Profile.
  • Click Forum Profile Information on the left menu.
  • Enter the signature code you copied into the box where it says Signature.
  • Click the Change Profile button at the bottom of the page.

All done.

If you want to make the banner a link to the team page, use the bbcode for url and point it at http://whatpulse.org/stats/teams/10466/

Any other questions or problems, just ask. I will be happy to help.

The team will still go on even though this challenge is over. Everyone is still welcome to join the team. I would love to have you aboard.

I think if every DC member joined, we could probably collectively kick some butt on the WhatPulse site with our combined stats.  :D

Congratulations Dr-Leech! Thank you for making us all feel like unproductive slobs with your typing count.  :P

Incidentally, my key count for the same period was 159,570.

I beat you all.  :P

But mine don't count.  :D

And I am still curious as to how much mouser types....when will we get to know, mouser? :tellme:

I actually type with only 2 fingers at a rate of just under 30WPM, so I am not fast...I just spend too much time on my computer doing too many things.

Do it exactly the way I wrote in the tutorial...file names & all...exact.

If you can't get it to work, try deleting some custom backgrounds you already uploaded and try again.

If you still can't get it to work or you didn't have any old custom backgrounds to delete, then try again tomorrow.

Other than that I don't know what to tell you.

It took me two days to get it to work properly with the custom background. I'd upload it but it wouldn't show up in my uploaded backgrounds. I'm not sure what I did but I finally got it working.

I had some problems in the beginning too...they didn't want to accept a .png, or the file name was bad or I don't know what, but when it finally worked I snagged all the settings I used so other could do exactly what I did.

Just keep trying...sonner or later it will work, I hope.

Okay I got it right now. I saved the image from this thread as a jpg, then opened it with Photoshop and saved it as a PNG. Doing so, it will report an error that only PNG, JPG/JPEG and GIF are supported, but nonetheless it is now in my uploaded backgrounds :D So that will do the trick!

Mine's a png too. Maybe that's the difference.

No wait. The WhatPulse turns the image and the text into a png much like Allen's imagIIne.

So I'm not sure why it gives a hard time.

I had a problem uploading .png and converted to .jpg and it worked for me.

It's just screwy...play around and just find what works for you...lol.
