Testing News. Hopefully you should be able to read the news coming from BBC News Online’s front page. The Flash here is being driven by an XML feed grabbed from the BBC. I dont think it would work, if the XML file was on the BBC servers.
As I said, this is a test. The original file here was designed to fit onto an iPaq which it does, quite nicely here. This will work over a Bluetooth and GPRS connection, or in your cradle, if the machine is connected and the settings are correct on the device.
Facial hair. Well, a couple of weeks after Glastonbury festival and I have my first shave. First attempt at letting the chin go hairy. Not bad. A bit itchy. But the weather here recently has been too hot for a mandible rug. Maybe I’ll ask it back for a visit in the Winter.
Blimey, you turn your back for, ooo, a month, a what happens? You get over 150,000 silly pictures and rants posted on your innocent, pointless, doodle-mad website! I’m planning on doing T-Shirts for them. Perhaps a little system to allow printers to download the picture and process payment for printing a T-Shirt of it?
Posters anyone? 😉 Watch this space for a mosiac-style massive picture made up from the previous posts to Blograffiti.
Also, busy working on a cunning mobile blogging thingy. It has the ability to upload images, audio, video and text to the web, via a mobile device. It works on the P800 on its own. Woo… stay tuned. I’ll get this up and running in two weeks, for Glastonbury Festival! So, I’ll be posting stuff up online for Auntie to filter through and use while ‘in the field’, so to speak. A ‘blog from the bog’. Lovely. Now… where’s my pass?
MAD Mike Chambers from Macromedia’s Devnet has asked users to spoof him online, in order to win a copy of their third Developers Resource Kit (DRK3). As I’ve been dabbling with this sort of thing, I though I’d give old Mike the once-over with Flash and live XML from his blog. Have a good look around. There are loads of links to many tutorials and rescources for Flash MX.
The Wacki Iraqi SHOW! Click the image to launch the show. Yes, more homage to the man who just keeps on giving. Spare this man! He seems to have fast become a cult figure around the world, for his constant denial of everything that has happened in Iraq. He has even got his own fan site now! Enjoy.
The Wacki Iraqi constantly excels himself with true entertainment during hard times in Baghdad. I don’t know what planet he lives on, and frankly I don’t care. Just so long as he keeps on entertaining us, in his own unique way. Someone give this man a TV show when this is all over. As homage, click the image to view him in his prime. 😉
IT’S WAR! Been very, very, very busy for Auntie working on a Flash, XML-driven Multimedia Console to cover the ongoing war in Iraq.
Click the picture to launch the console. If you are a UK broadband subscriber, go to the ‘Watch/Listen’ button on the BBC News hompage (top right) and you should get the link to the broadband version with much better quality video.
AT LAST! the Sony Ericsson P800. Coo! I’ve waited for this for months. Mighty fine it is too! Click the image to view a little gallery of it. It’s great. It does all sorts of things. You can even play MAME on it! (Original arcade games) Also, I an use it to remote control my desktop PC from anywhere I can get a signal! Madness. i love it.
