Submission Queue Live Counter

Be amazed mortals! Be amazed at my mighty programming prowess.

I introduce to you the Twin Galaxies submission queue live update display. This display uses the Pimoroni Rainbow Hat and some custom python code I used to determine the submission queue length.

Current count: 907

@Jace Hall @SincerelyFranny You gotta invite me to write an article for the front page or something. :)

    Yeah, another statistic of no relevance. :P

    Good to see you enjoying these engineering projects, regardless. :)

    Not sure what happened to the comment I posted earlier. I'll try again.

    It is all part of my project to constantly learn and challenge myself. Being a database programmer for the past 25 years, I found myself getting a little bored of same old thing, so I got into the Pi world. I am now comfortable with python, bash, even some hardware tinkering.

    By the way, the count is down to 905!!

    Do I spend the time to figure out how many were removed vs how many new? Of course!

    I already have a counter for the number of times people freaked out while having a civilized discussion. It is unusually high here at Triple Planets. Almost as if the typical member here has a lower than usual sense of humor.

    glen was banned two times under tgsap alone. he has to have the record.

    from this day forward i will no longer call it banning, banning is a city and leads to too much confusion, it will hereby referred to as 'updiking"

    He's probably a long way back from Rudy and the probable second place to Rocky Rose. Of course, if you plan to define it, I wouldn't know how to count Mr. Awesome's infractions.

    i'm counting having your real account banned. rocky rose or his buddy with girard with fake accounts is really cheating for getting most bans. i think it takes more skill to get unbanned and then rebanned under your real account than just make a lot of fake ones.

    Sounds like you're well on your way to defining the rules for a scoreboard. ;)

    GFG

    and bans...

    perfect for new tracks.

    but it might lead to a lengthy discussion of whether it was emulation or not since it happens on the PC

    We are up to 922!

    Today is a sick day for me, so I'll be adjudicating like mad. Seeing this counter move is WAY more entertaining that I thought it would be. :)

    Over the past couple of days, the counter went as high as 917 and is now currently at 898. I have been adjudicating pinball submissions...and a few went through. Now to find some more Angry Birds (easy reviews!) and get this counter down to 800.
