We are working on adding Sippin Safari to the Grogalizer. We have all the new ingredients in the system, but only about 1/4 of the recipes, if that. I'll let you know when they are all there. Should be done this week sometime.

I am not sure what you will see with all the recipes that have a name only in there and no ingredient list. You may have a large number of false positive recipe hits. Sorry. It'll be fixed soon enough.




HURRAY!!

Ice on the roads gave us time to get them all in this morning. Have at it!

Hmmmm.... Here's an idea. When I do a major update of the site, I might want to log in and check to see that it works! Grrrr. Sorry. I'll have it working tonight.

Thanks to new member oysterschnapps for pointing out some problems with the Grogalizer. I had removed Trader Vic's Passionfruit Syrup in favor of just Passionfruit syrup as an ingredient, and didn't update all the recipes, so, many dissappeared from your lists. Also, when the Grogalizer was created, there were more liquors than any other category, so they controlled the size of the table. With the new books, mixers became the most populated, and this caused the last few of them to be cut off. So, you could not select vanilla extract and others from the list.

Those two things were fixed and so, some recipes wil appear in your lists or reappear in your lists.

Enjoy!

I am in the process of moving The Swank Pad to a new host. All the Grogalizer info was downloaded on Friday. I should have shut it down then. I wasn't thinking ahead, just trying to get everything before I lost access. If you have signed up, voted, etc. since Thursday, I can't tell you that info will be there.

If the site is still active tonight, I will turn it off and download all the tables again.

So, the Grogalizer will be offline sometime soon and be down for a while. It is a fairly complex thing to rebuild a site from files and to reload a MySQL DB from files. And, I am not exactly fat with spare time.

It will be back, I just can't say exactly when.

Cross your fingers. I will never have the free time I did when I wrote all the Grogalizer code. This had better work!

I'm closing in on it. The data base is connected, but I am having a problem with the posted variables coming through. Seems simple. I'll find the answer soon. Just get a few minutes here and there to work on it. If I have time, I should be abel to get it working tonight. Or at least, get logged in and see what else is broken...

Yeah! I think it is fixed. Login works, storing items, showing recipes, comments and voting. As far as I can tell it's back!

Let me know if you notice any problems. The email function is likely out if you forget your password...

The Grogalizer is crazy slow. I am not sure if it is ther server I am on and how many are sharing the resources, or if the growth in ingredients and recipes has just made the process slower. I think part is due to the server since just logging in is way slower.

I am tweaking one of the major queries to see if it speeds things up. We'll see.

But I think the long term answer is to get on a faster machine or one with better resources. That would mean a lot more money which isn't happening. Anyone want to host the Grogalizer on your faster machine? Needs php, pear and MySQL...

Just got Tiki+ on the iPhone and was honored to see The Grogalizer on the second link. Thanks Bum! Will be looking into making the app an addition to the recipes on the site.

Added "Fresh Mint" as an ingredient. Will be updating recipes over time, but started with the Mai Tai. Mint is more than a garnish.

We are expecting to have the new site live in a month or so. Maybe right after I get my hands on the new Bum book. Features to be added:

Account editing! Whew! Change your email and password, give a profile, etc. You'll also be able to look at what people have voted for and their comments, etc.

Change your votes, and comments. I have changed my tastes. The drinks I loved 5 years ago may make me gag today...

Limit the recipes shown to just the books you have. No extra junk to wade through.

Show/hide comments

Show recipes you could make with an extra ingredient or 2.

Show the number of recipes each ingredient is in. Helps stock the bar appropriately.

The new site is very app-like. Hoping it will look good on your iPhone or other device and meld with Tiki+.

The site will get additions over time. Once the basics are in place, we'll let it go live and add more tweaks as time goes on.

I am very excited. The designer is Justin Bird. He's a TC member (gooneybird) and
here is his site.

Very cool, Swanky, looking forward to the new site.
Than you for the work you've done on Grogalizer all these years. I use it all the time and find it a great resource.
You've made making tropical drinks easier.

I can see it coming along in the distance. It'll be here soon!

Moving to our own domain. Go ahead and bookmark it and you'll be ready when it gets revealed.
