Sometimes I start working on projects, talk about the projects for a bit, and then for some reason, I stop talking about the projects. Allow me to remedy that situation.

Code

Heybuddy

On April 4th, Heybuddy Identi.ca client version 0.2.5 Westerlo was released. There wasn't too much added, but there was a fix to an n900 bug that I wanted to make sure was available to everyone.

MuttonChop

MuttonChop also saw a new release: 0.1.4 "Sleepy Hollow". The big items from the changelog:

  • can compile headless (hence "sleepy hollow" hahaha)
  • switched to cmake
  • added server_port to config
  • added server_request_timeout to config
  • added "player/mute" to API
  • added "player/unmute" to API
  • added "queue/add" to API
  • added "queue/delete" to API
  • added "queue/list" to API

The build system was switched from Automake to Cmake in order for me to keep my sanity and enable compiling headless.

The 'headless' compiling allows a user to get a version of MuttonChop without video output support. A big thank you to Jon Kulp for supplying the coffee that fueled this update. Jon also made some scripts that make installing dependencies and compiling for Debian on a Raspberry Pi nice and easy. He also created an init script so that MuttonChop will run at startup. Both of his scripts are now in MuttonChop trunk in a directory called "scripts".

Currently, it is only possible to access the Queue through the mobile interface (and the API of course). The next release of MuttonChop will have a single Web UI and it will most likely be written using jQuery UI.

Blather

What started as a basic commandline speech recognizer is still a basic speech recognizer, but now it has a PySide based UI as well, and it runs just fine on the Desktop and mobile devices that are decent enough to run Qt apps.

The code for blather is available on gitorious. On the night that the blather code was first made public, I sent a link to the code to Jon Kulp. The next morning, I awoke to find that he had created a video of him using Blather.


AWESOME!

Hacker Public Radio

Although this isn't really code related, it is definitely community related.

After recording a "How I got into Linux" Episode for HPR, I thought I should share my recording experience with other and on April 9th, I gave a presentation at the North Bay Linux Users Group that was an introduction to HPR and and overview of recording audio using Audacity. I had a great time presenting and I think I managed to answer every Linux question that was asked during the evening.

Now quit reading, and go be a Blathering Blatherskite! hahaha

Please do not post HTML code or bbcode unless you want it to show up as code in your post. (or if you are a blog spammer, in which case, you probably aren't reading this anyway).
Prove you are human by solving a math problem! I'm sorry, but due to an increase of blog spam, I've had to implement a CAPTCHA.
