slumber – a simple task scheduler for Windows

Sunday, February 26th, 2006

slumber was written to automate code backups on my workstation; I find it nice to have a zip made of project directories every 12 hours or so. I tried to make it as unobtrusive as possible, so 95% of the time it just sits in the systray, running your tasks from there. Easy enough!

Download slumber from the slumber project page.

Pearl Jam – Worldwide Suicide

Sunday, February 26th, 2006

I downloaded a clip of what appears to be the first single from the new (as yet unnamed) Pearl Jam record. It’s like 15 seconds of the chorus or something, but it definitely sounds interesting. I can’t wait to hear the full album when it comes out in the nearish future.

Download the clip here.

httppostex – an HTTP POST code example

Thursday, February 23rd, 2006

httppostex was the basis for the basis for the console / experimental shell uploader. When that was rewritten (quite well, in fact, by Joshua Teitelbaum), I left the code alone for a while, but decided to release the HTTP POST stuff as an example. Maybe it’ll save someone the trouble of Googling heh.

See the httppostex page for more information.

I wrote setlistimator back in January (’06) as a little side project and haven’t really done much with it since then; but tonight I thought, what the hell, maybe someone else will find it slightly fun for a minute or two. =)

See the setlistimator page for more information.

New Design

Sunday, February 19th, 2006

I finally got around to making use of Shane’s layout, woot! Let’s see if the Zog notices ;)

Hopefully everything is a little more organized, filtered down, and of higher quality than it used to be.
