Ok, if that's the case, I don't mind. A few seconds or not, I don't think plays a big role here. A WebParser is not a precision program from space travel or something. A few seconds delay could cause some problems. O.O :lol:
However I don't have an explanation why the updates happen on an interval of 30 minutes (or even a little bit more), instead of 20. But I think you can live with this. If needed, you can adjust the UpdateRate to a value which updates properly the measure. A few tries are needed in order to get the proper value, but I think you can determin the proper value.
I told you little green gobblins ;-)
Ok, joking aside. I can live with it, but it is annoying. Especially if it comes as now in my case to understanding problems in the Rainmeter matter and I, or we go on troubleshooting. After all, it's not like we've only been busy with my NewsFeed reader for 5 minutes.
Since nothing surprises me now that I understand nothing despite the good manual and also your explanations and assistance.

Well well, on the whole (still apart from my InlineSetting color problem) the feed runs yes. And the timing on 20 minutes I adapt me on occasion times. Currently it doesn't matter if it's 20 or 33 minutes ... one reads anyway only Corona from morning to evening :vomit: :yawn:

Finally, here are the update cycles over several hours

Code: Select all

DateTime0=29.03.2021 · 13:18:25
DateTime1=29.03.2021 · 13:52:32
DateTime2=29.03.2021 · 14:26:31
DateTime3=29.03.2021 · 15:00:22
DateTime4=29.03.2021 · 15:34:16
DateTime5=29.03.2021 · 16:08:09
DateTime6=29.03.2021 · 16:41:51
DateTime7=29.03.2021 · 17:15:44
DateTime8=29.03.2021 · 17:49:37
DateTime9=29.03.2021 · 18:23:25
DateTime10=29.03.2021 · 18:57:11
DateTime11=29.03.2021 · 19:30:59
DateTime12=29.03.2021 · 20:05:07
DateTime13=29.03.2021 · 20:38:41
DateTime14=29.03.2021 · 21:12:17
DateTime15=29.03.2021 · 21:45:57

Yes, indeed the interval is little bit more then half an hour. But if you can live with it, I suppose it's good.

Yes, as I said, I'll leave it like that for now.
What I have changed TO TEST however again, I have your tips UpdateDivider=1 on the [mRSS] and UpdateRate=60000 undone.

I have now again (as I said for testing) UpdateRate=1200 WITHOUT an UpdateDivider=1 on the [mRSS].
And what can I say, the update cycle is more or less exactly the same to the second. +/- 33minutes and a few crushed seconds.

At the same time, I have network traffic monitored. And it tells me the same thing.
No matter if your method or mine ... My NewsFeed skin ... parses the update cycle 33Min and few seconds.

So I think I will probably NOT run the risk of being blocked because I query the server too often

Tried it out. With the following settings:

Code: Select all

[Rainmeter]
Update=20
DefaultUpdateDivider=50
...

[mRSS]
...
UpdateRate=1200
UpdateDivider=1
...
I get around one update per minute.
With UpdateRate=60000 I get an update interval of around half an hour (a little bit more maybe).
Not sure what is causing this. The real times are not corresponding to the calculated ones.
A dev would be needed here I think, to clarify this.

I have posted the actual code for my NewsFeed Reader for a few Minutes here Help with parsing html.

There it is except for UpdateDivider=1 on the [mRRS]-Measure exactly as you have suggested it with now finally.
By the way, with UpdateRate=1200 I still have an update ONLY every 33 minutes and a few seconds.
Maybe due to the forgotten UpdateDivider=1, no plan...

But somehow the worm is totally in it. Purely basically the NewsFeed runs well, on the other hand as if it leads a life of its own. :uhuh:

Current problems, which I do NOT get eliminated:
- Update time of the feed [mRSS]-Measure ... see this thread here
- The InlineSettings (Colors) on the individual feeds in the output meter [NewsFeed] do what they want. Sometimes exactly like it should be, then a feed plays clow and is colorful like one, then a feed has NO color and is just white, and such jokes...
- Yes, and finally the problem from the other thread with reading and formatting the TimeStamp <lastBuilddate>.

I'm really starting to lose motivation with Rainmeter. So it's not fun anymore when you spend WEEKS trying to get such crap cleaned up. :-( :( :vomit: O.O :?

BBBBUUUUUUTTTTTT, I have especially now my NewsFeed skin for all my problems with the same here only the Measure [mRRS] and the contained OnChangeAction-Commands like FinishAction-Commands in suspicion.

I think that there are nestings or whatever in here, where some things just don't fit. :uhuh: :confused: :???:
For example that a Meter/Measure updates before the Colors (InlineSetting) are set reasonably, which then leads to the complained color problem in the output.
But this is only a guess. Because my understanding here related to OnChangeAction or FinishAction, so my question or help search started here originally times. Everything is too high for me... :???: :confused:
