I added a function to randomly generate an author id from a list, if none is given.

private function randomAuthor()
{
// source of authors: http://www.tellmequotes.com/
$authors = array(
array(83, 'Mark Twain'),
array(185, 'Oscar Wilde'),
array(79, 'Lord Byron'),
);
mt_srand((double)microtime() * 1000000);
$rand = mt_rand(0, count($authors) - 1);
$get = $authors[$rand];
$authorId = $get[0];
return $authorId;
}

Wow, that is a lot of authors. :)

I appear to have run into an access limit. Is this limit reset eventually?

status = 3
alert = You reached the limit - 52

Sorry there was a limit of 52 for a single domain. right now its in testing mode but if you think that we should remove the limit than i will remove the limit.

By the way its a per day limit

It appears the number returned is variable. A few tries show these alerts:

"You reached the limit - 789"
"You reached the limit - 455"
"You reached the limit - 70"
"You reached the limit - 531"

Maybe the author id is returned? I don't think the limit is reset, because I have not been able to get a successful result.

I have a test set up at http://birds.gerrydanen.com/dailyAutoJobs/getQuote.php if you like to test.

By the way, my email is gdanen @ gmail . com if you like to communicate directly.

Thanks

Gerry
