Google Analytics to Twitter bot

The last week, I've been tinkering with Google's Analytics API. What I wanted to do was have daily reports on my website which then  tweets the difference from yesterday to today. The ideal situation was I would have it SMS me the results. The problem is that my phone carrier (Rogers) complicates things. For most carriers, you can email a carrier-supplied address ( for example) which in turn would send an SMS to that address. But, what Rogers does is once you receive a text, you have to respond back with REPLY to view it. Stupid huh.


I'm not into social networking or that kind of stuff, but I decided to join Twitter instead. I installed two apps for my iPod for Twitter and I guess I exceed 100 requests an hour.
...So I decided to make my own microblogging site. Sounds like another useless script....but oh well, something to pass the time. Sounds like a good idea? Leave a comment and let me know.


It seems I get quite a number of hits from this blog entry. Below, I've included the microblogging script I made. 

Server Stat

There's an app in the AppStore called Server Database. A pretty simple app, made to manager servers and such. Enter the name, address, function for the server and you're good to go. Well, I decided to make my own version of it using iWebKit. You can check it out here. Its pretty simple, it's read only for now. I'll wrap it up in a tarball and put it on the 'Free PHP Scripts' page.  Anyway, just though I'd share that.

Refernece Wiki

I modified one of my own wiki scripts to conform with iWebKit to make a reference wiki. I was inspired by a PHP reference app in the AppStore so I decided to make my own (sorta). In short, you search for a function and view the correct syntax, etc... Sorta pointless but time consuming
Our team might go to the Provincials which is in March sometime
Anyway, Friday tomorrow w00t!

And the plot thickens....
