    Later, they see three people walk out.

    Today I announced eyeJ a new application for eyeOS that allows for applications to be written in Objective-J. Right now the system is in very early stages, only basic apps can be written at this point.
    But for now check out this screen cast:

    Ether wiki 

    I made a wiki system using appjet and ether pad. The system uses wiki creole as a wiki engine and loads the content out of ether pad. If you have been using ether pad check it out at wiki.matthewfl.com.

    The unPacker again 

    The JavaScript unPacker is getting a lot of attention and I do not think that every one understands it. The unPacker was made to make code that was packed by the /packer/(with base62) human readable again. 99% of the code that comes out works without any changes, then running the code through FireFox with Firebug you should be able to easily find the error and fix the code. When I was testing the unPacker, I was unpacking jQuery, there would be about 3 error in the code, but I was able to find the error and fix the code in under 5 min with Firebug. (jQuery packed is about 32KB and about 52KB minified and it was designed to be able to be packed).
    All the problem that I have heard about the unPacker I think are counter with what it is and can be used for. The basic idea was to be better that the replacing the eval with an alert to get all of the JavaScript in one long line. (jQuery in an alert is about 50,000 Character in one line)

    The forum that I follow related to the unPacker.

    Tags: , , ubiquity   


    I have made another Appjet web site. This time it is for making Ubiquity commands and being able to distribute them at the click of a button. It is free and easy to get going with a small simple command. If you do not have Ubiquity yet then you can try it at http://labs.mozilla.com/projects/ubiquity/. Then head over here to get some new commands to try out.

    So far I have the Ip-get app, that will determine your Ip address. “Quote” that gets a quote from my quote Appjet site and can insert it in to any text field.

    twitter site feed 

    Today I was working on getting a twitter site feed up in JavaScript and now it is running on my home page and I have a demo here. The downside is that each page can only display each user once so far. The code is here if you want to use it with jQuery.

    Vitural Host 

    I was trying to set up a virtual host with Apache on my MacBook and it turned out to be a bigger deal than I thought it would be.

    Here are the steps that I took to setup “something.local”

    First add a alias name to the mac os.
    1) Open terminal Applications/Utilites/Terminal
    2) Type “sudo nano /etc/hosts” (without quotes) and enter your password
    3) Go to the end of the file using the arrow keys and add to the file “ something.local” (without quotes)
    4) Control X (Not apple key Control) , The “Y” key and enter
    5) Now another config file type “sudo nano /etc/apache2/httpd.conf”
    6) Go to the end of the File and add
    NameVirtualHost *:80

    < virtualhost *:80>
    ServerAdmin someone@example.com
    DocumentRoot “/Users/YOUR_USER_NAME/Sites/something.local”
    ServerName something.local
    ServerAlias http://www.something.local
    < /virtualhost>

    After restarting the computer when you type in “something.local” in to your web browser Apache will try to server up the index file in the something.local in you sites folder

    Video longer than 10 min on YouTube 

    Ok, so I was trying to upload a 22 min, and I hit a road block because the video was longer than 10 min. So what I ended up doing is splitting the video into 3 parts and adding them all to a play list so that when one video finishes the next starts.
