New SVN repo: PHP Libraries

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

Just added a new repository to the site: PHP Libraries. Currently in there are working classes or functions for:

  • Firefly Media Server – a class for direct access to the songs database
  • Roku Client – a client for Roku music players like the Soundbridge. Allows remote scripting etc
  • twitter – a bunch of functions for posting to, or getting info from a twitter account
  • Delicious – a class for (currently only) getting delicious bookmarks. Will add other methods if/when they’re needed for other scripts.

And there’s a class in there that I might work on if I can be bothered to get an App key for it.

Head to to browse them, svn co to check the lot out.

Update: Just added which currently just has my twitter command line client in it.

iPlayer Nokia N95 Stream Already Available

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

Well spotted by Phil who’s discovered that the new N95/N96 stream for the BBC iPlayer is already available and can be viewed or even saved to file just by pointing an RTSP compatible media player at a valid URL – just like when the iPhone H264 stream came out.

More details are on our lovely Beebhack wiki

New host!

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

I’ve just moved my site from the (once good value, now rubbish) ODSOL to Dreamhost, which is a blinding improvement.

I now have (about 1000 times) more web space and I’ll also be able to do nice things like host my own SVN projects. Yay!

Some of the links to other non-blog parts of the site might not work for a bit…
