MeteorBot, the bot referenced in the Mix and Match article is now available on GitHub: https://github.com/mzeman/meteorBot
I have replaced the todo webapp with a custom one (Currently less features than todo, but its a WIP)
The todo app is a fantastic example app and it really helped point me in the right direction. Thanks! (meteor create --example todos) <-Command for anyone who wants to mess with the todo sample app
Anyway, for right now, there are no new features beyond the new webapp and nothing else really exciting to report besides the code being on GitHub. Once I have something more monumental to report I will post again.
So today I was coding on my desktop for a change and I noticed my fonts looked awful.
I remembered that last time I used my desktop my fonts did not look like this, I played around with the font smoothing setting, but it did not help.
Fortunately I stumbled upon this article which saved the day: http://www.macworld.com/article/1145157/smoothsnow.html
Apparently starting with 10.6 the Font Smoothing config got really dumbed down and causes problems on third party displays.
So I stumbled upon meteorjs last week (Posted by someone at work) and I wanted to dabble with it a bit.
I have also been wanting to create and IRC bot with node-irc for fun.
In the end I decided to combine both today. This endeavor most likely makes no sense and is pretty much useless, but I have enjoyed it so far.
What I have at this time is in very earlier stages, but it involves using the meteorjs todo sample project as a way to configure responses for the irc bot.
Please checkout the example screens:
User configures bot responses via meteorjs app (I intend to make a new app, right now I am using the todo app):
Bot response with configured responses. The bot can also be programmed via IRC and the meteorjs site will update live
Checkout the configure app: http://matthewzeman.net:3000
Drop in irc: irc.freenode.net #zTest4323
The bot is now available on GitHub: https://github.com/mzeman/meteorBot
Lately I've been in the mood to code something and learn some new technology.
Anyone else in a similar mood and want to brainstorm/create something?
I need to run, but I will start posting ideas here. I also idle on freenode in #zemansThoughts and #zTest4323
I will fill this post out later, just didn't want to lose anything:
So I can't say why I do any of the things I do, but I was bored this evening and I just started futzing with random stuff.
First off I stumbled upon Gate One, a web based terminal emulator: https://github.com/liftoff/GateOne
Got that installed on my server and I have to say it is rather spiffy, can't wait to give it a real spin tomorrow: https://matthewzeman.net:8888/
BrowserQuest + IRC
I am sure everyone has seen Mozilla's Browser Quest: http://browserquest.mozilla.org/
It is really pretty cool stuff, so as always I decided I wanted to try setting up a server: http://matthewzeman.net/rpg/
Then I was sitting around in my own server bored that no one was chatting (Just me), plus I have been on a bit of an IRC kick. Anyway I was like lets actually do something besides config random software on my server, so I found a nice nodejs IRC library(https://github.com/martynsmith/node-irc) and implemented some extremely basic functionality.
I may even take this farther as I am finding it quite enjoyable:)

I now have a solid quad boot going on my PC: XP, Win 7, Ubuntu, OSX.
The big question is which one will win out? Ubuntu or OSX? Both are running flawlessly thus far
