Just wanted to update this to let people who still pay attention to it know that, since the update, there have been a few bugs in it.

It still loads a tea fine, however it only loads the picture of the tea, not the name, and no link to the tea page.

I know teaplz is no longer active on this site, but I thought I’d point it out. It’s not a problem if you can recognize all of your teas by their picture alone (I can, for the most part, although there are a few that just use the Company Logo).

Yeah, it only seems to load the tea name the first time I try it. All subsequent attempts only show the picture. :(

Hi folks – long time, no see! Sorry it took so long to fix, but I’ve tweaked it a bit so the randomizer should work now. The link again is here:

After reorganizing my cupboard and finding a lot more tea I thought I had, this comes pretty handy once again!
The mastermind behind this is a little genius, thank you, with the refresh, it’s even more fun than I remembered!

I totally had to add several of the tea s you sent me to the database so there may be some there you can add quickly to your cupboard lol

Haha! That’s what I thought! I did already and I was surprised to see some of them already in the database, so I thought it must have been you :-) Boy, you are quick with the update thing!

Sil select said

Have to do it as soon as I get the tea lol :)

I’ll try to do the same from now on… It’s all done now, and I am not happy with the number, I had no idea it was so high, damn it!!! Six more months of «order sobriety», and that’s that. Stick to the plan, hopefully!!!

Sil select said

Bwahahaha you’re higher than me! And there’s a box on its way to you hehe

You are evil, evil . You are. Lol, your package will test my new found discipline!

(not saying anything, just sitting quietly in the corner…..)

Lol, dexter please don’t play shy, join in!!! (Did you know she was evil???)

Dexter said

LOL Oh I know, Sil is wonderful and evil all rolled into one. I sent her 10 teas when she was on hiatus – she was saying she missed getting tea in the mail – I sent her a “few” – 10 is a few in my world. I got in trouble for that, so she sends me a box of 25….shrug dunno – lol this is how wars start… :))

Lol, 10 is also a few in my world, so I guess I started this war!! (He, by the look of our mutual cupboards, I understand why 10 seems like a few !!! )

Dexter said

LOL exactly – when you have 20 of something – 10 is a lot – when you have 200… 10 is a few. I of course have sent her more since then, so it’s all good. I love this site and the people on it. I’m choosing not to be too concerned about my soon to be 300 cupboard – it just means that I have more to share with others.

Well said!

Sil select said

Lol my cupboard used to be that big!

Bumping. The randomizer still works! Crap, I need to update my cupboard!

I didn’t even know about this! Cool!

This is wonderful! Does it not work for the chrome browser?

Emilie said

I’m on Chrome and it’s working for me. Maybe you have an add-on blocking it accidentally?

Kayla select said

I’m getting the following:

Warning: file_get_contents( failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found in /home1/jaydee/public_html/ on line 555

Warning: file_get_contents( failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found in /home1/jaydee/public_html/ on line 555

And nothing below the “Maybe you should have”

ohhh! I get that sometimes. It usually happens when I click, ‘meh, another one please!’. I just log out and login again.

Kayla select said

No luck :/ Thanks for the suggestions guys, I’ll keep at it!

yyz said

Kayla, is your user name different than your display name? If so see if the other will work.

Kayla select said

Aha! I didn’t even know I had a user name that would have been different. Thank you so much :D

I’m glad it worked!
