I've never played with any geolocation tools before but I thought I'd take a whack at it. After stumbling across GeoHelper, I thought I'd test things out with it. Well, after finding that the only reverse postal code lookup is Canada Post, I might as well make my own.
Worked some more on Pasteros, cloud based text storage lately and added some more features. Now you can download a paste or view it raw. Also, it displays how long ago the paste was submitted. The design colours still suck of course. There's an API (of some sort) so feel free to check it out.
I just had to create [another] text storage project, just for shits. Pasteros (temporary domain) is a text storage storage (think Pastebin, Pastie, etc) running on DotCloud. It uses Twig for templating and I just converted the MySQL innerworkings to PostgreSQL (juste pour le fun). I also made an API for public use as well. I'll be releasing the source code shortly. Any feedback is appreciated.
One of the servers that are at my disposal has a very low CPU usage percentage (if that makes sense). On my way to set up a PPTP VPN server on the box, I realized my router running pfSense could do it out of the box. In this short tutorial, I'll show you how to get a PPTP VPN working so that you can connect to it anywhere.
Head under VPN -> PPTP
Jeez, almost been a week since my last blog post. Recently, I've been working on Sysode more and more. Numerous bugs have been fixed, yet there are more and more features everytime I work on it. It's open for registration, but more than likely your account will be deleted if you end up signing up.
I'm open for any feedback on it :D
Google officially released Chrome for Mac and Linux.
Grab the x86 .deb package here, and run dpkg -i google-chrome-unstable_current_i386.deb
Sysode is a simplified file backup system for developers. Really, none of the code has been put together as I'm still 'brainstorming'. It's mainly targeted at single developers or small teams, for backup and archival purposes. (Free of course)
"Hey, did you get version YZ from X?"
"Login to our Sysode account and get it!"
Not sure how [specifically] it's going to work. Setting up a good API so [other] developers can write stuff for it is a must.
Ticketto (rhymes with Geppetto) is new project I started today; it's based on mail (MailX) so the foundation is already there. A client can create a support ticket in different departments and view the response from staff/admin/whatever. Admins can have seperate departments, so three admins three departments.
The client will also have their own area for other stuff (I'm working on it.)
Anyway, it's Sunday so I'll be watching some TV (if the satelite isn't out still).
