I've noticed that the website has been down for at least a day or two. I believe x10hosting is going through some major server migrations, so ideally things will be back up soon (and working better). If not, I'll try to find a new hosting service for the dashboard.
Minor update on the site today, changed the timestamp of last data refresh (with timezone confusion) to a timer. It's been bugging me for months!
Also, the original x10hosting site seems to have resolved their hosting issues for the most part. I find x10hosting slightly faster to load, most times. 0sites.net is still pretty steady though. Both will continue to work for the foreseeable future.
HG Webdash is currently experiencing some problems due to a "bad character" in a recent runmsg. Not sure if I can handle these types of data issues that come through the data feed or not, but I won't be able to look into it until tomorrow at the earliest.
Once the runmsg with the bad character ages enough, HG webdash functionality should return to normal.
I've added DM/Guide attribute tags to the appropriate players. I didn't realize this info was available in the XML, but it is, so it was easy enough to add.
Note I am no longer maintaining the original site hosted at x10hosting. It hasn't been responding for the last couple of days, and I will be deleting it entirely once I can actually get in to the site.
Re: inserting chat into the message channels, that isn't possible from HG Webdash. I think it's been suggested in the past, its something that would have be done directly at the server where HG runs, I believe (if even possible).
In the (sadly) ongoing quest to find a stable home for HG Webdash, one of the community members, TJ, has generously offered a home to host the pages. There have been some availability issues with the free hosting sites I've been trying to use, hopefully TJ has solved the wandering webpage syndrome with a permanent home.
We could host it on hgweb easily enough, with an ftp account for you. I was thinking a downside was that webdash would run even if hgweb was down, but I guess with no data source it wouldn't be so useful anyway.
Alternately I could have the web scripts just generate a similar page. I avoided doing that before because I didn't want to take over the project, and having an app using the XML interface is pretty neat. The other downside of that is then you can't easily change it.
