I’m working on the new Webfroot site. This’ll be the 3rd revision I’ve done since it’s first inception in mid 2001. Not dropping any hints on what will be new, but be rest assured, we will still provide the same level of news reporting you know and love.
Yup, today at work I installed Debian Linux 3.0 on a box we dubbed Radar, after the character from M*A*S*H, to go along with our test server, Hawkeye. I think Klinger is the next one we’ll put together. So yeah, I did my first kernel re-compile. W00t 😉
Mmm… don’t you like the What’s Playing section on the sidebar? It’s powered by What’s Playing plugin for Winamp 3. Here’s the PHP script I’m using here on glutnix.com.
What’s Playing (the way I’m using it) sends the id3 details of the last n songs to a php script. This script then takes those details and writes a bit of html which you then include in your page. What’s Playing can also upload an HTML file to your FTP server if that’s how you would rather do it.
Tomorrow morning I start work at Dev-Zone.org. W00t! Just a friendly hi to all my new friends at dev-zone, especially Daniel and Don in my department. I’ve been looking forward to starting for just over 3 weeks now, and I’m glad to be. New jobs are always exciting!
