Went and saw John Butler Trio last night. Truely amazing stuff. All three of those guys are by far the most talented musicians I’ve heard in a long time. I’ll try and get a live set up when I get access to it (asking on JBT forums now).
In other news, I’ve got a MicroITX machine for a PVR, my thinclient booting and a few RPMs have been released. Mum visited for 2 days too and Sals parents came via here on their way to NZ.
Anyways, I’ll give a more detailed wrap up and pictures when I finish with work.
Ok, I’ve recompiled PHP (to 4.3.7) and MySQL (4.0.20) for Redhat 7.3, 9 and ES3. They are all in the usual directory (/downloads/*).
I’ve also made it into a Yum repository so you can subscribe to the Seekbrain.com updates channel and rip updates automatically.
Use the following Yum config:
name=Seekbrain.com Updates for $releasever
This should automatically select your version and get updates from there.
Yer well, a bit of random procrastination came over me so I went about producing a Perl based IRC bot. Current features are:
– Multiple Server support
– Mulitple Channel support
– Full Xchat Compatible logging support
– Star Wars Random quote function
– !l33tsp4m3r function
The last function basically waits for someone to say:
!l33tsp4m3r #channelname [optional botname]
When that occurs, it will join the channel (after cloning if optional botname is specified) and wait for input from the initiating channel. When a user says anything prefixed with leet, it will convert what the user has said and print it in the target channel.
Lame but fun. 😉
Perllabs is me. 🙂
[16:04:49] !l33tsp4m3r #bc sp4mm4st3r
[16:04:49] sp4mm4st3r (~sp4mm4st3@CPE-144-136-154-111.qld.bigpond.net.au) has joined channel #bud
[16:04:51] leet, hehehehehee this is addictive
[16:04:49] sp4mm4st3r (~sp4mm4st3@CPE-144-136-154-111.qld.bigpond.net.au) has joined channel #bc

To kill the bot:
[16:06:46] Signoff: sp4mm4st3r (Remote host closed the connection)
SO.. Here it is
One final note, if your nickname has Perl in it and you say Go away it will self destruct. 🙂
I present to you “15 Hours“, a short 5.5 mins documentary about a certain character named Alex who found out he had an exam in 15hrs having studied nothing.
In actual fact, Alex is a friend from Uni and when I saw this on Unleaded Online I just HAD to copy it. 🙂
