User count is a little broken, php help wanted

LAST UPDATE: Deived is the man! The counter no longer resets on the top of the hour and his solution was simple and elegant. THANKS!

UPDATE: Deived is helping out as an admin and I hope you will all click his ads. Oh wait, we still don’t have ads… haha.

I’m sure some of you may have noticed that the user count is a little fucked, because at the beginning of every hour it resets for zero, and the timezone being inserted into the database is also wonky. I actually wrote a full request to the author’s plugin forum tag on wordpress, but clearly… some things you just have to fix yourself. I’ll be fucking around with that in addition to the other bazillion things that are going on as the site grows and nothing is allowed to develop stability, stability kills movement.

Any other people here code php and want to eventually come work for HoT full-time?

ADDITIONAL RUMINATIONS FROM DEAR LEADER: There will be a new feature I will be testing for logged in users only that is in the R&D stage… LIVE CHAT, that is if a plugin or php script exists in this universe that can do the job right or at least be be hackable.

    1. Okay, if you fuck up the site though, I’m gonna let everyone know who to bitch out :) And if you do a great job, I will tell all the hot chicks that you have a big cock and do my best to shower you with adsense love.

      I’m sure there shouldn’t be any problems, I just have a tendency to see the dipolar possibility of everything and disregard everything in between (usually with hilarious results).

      So, how long you been doing PHP?

      1. For a couple years. I’m by no means the best, but I’ve done a few things. I’ve messed a bit with WP stuff to, but I tend to write from scratch. Some of the stuff I’ve written…

        dlscript.deived.com — I use this to download podcasts and other files from behind firewall at work :)

        wiibuddies.net — I solo project I was working on, but it’s hard to work solo.

        deived.com/gallery — An image gallery I was building. Works, but havent done anything with it.

        An SMS based todo calendar I was building… again… solo projects. Add items to the calendar via sms text message. Also fetch from calendar via sms using commands like getdatexxxxxx or gettoday

        For what it’s worth….
