Posts have been in short supply on teabass again, my spare time is stretched very thin at the moment what with work; we are getting real close to launching but have suffered an acute case of feature bloat which has lengthened the development process but hopefully for the better with extra features, prettier pages and more ajax and other web2.0 buzzwords thrown in for good measure.
I received a shiny new Nikon D40 on Friday and then promptly spent the weekend taking close to 800 photographs around London, I also met up with the great Mike Franklin from America, and Danny and Eva who live in London but are from Australia. I had a great time, learn a large amount about using DSLR cameras in a very short space of time (thanks to some expert tips too) and snapped some very cool photos.
I also got the chance to go on the London Eye at night which is awesome, thanks again to Mike for paying, I took my macbook on there with me and quickly fired up iStumbler to find over 100 wifi access points many of which were unprotected, its a war-drivers dream or should that be war-wheeler?
Yesterday I got the chance to met up with Ryan, a long time supporter of Teabass and a really nice chap, he sure knows his php and apple products too. He’s working for Perplexcity (although he’s not allowed to say much so shhhh!) and it sounds really cool there, we are going to work try out some cool and very geeky things in the future such as a pilot podcast episode and an upgrade and re-launch to his online real-time space strategy game Orbwars.
Going back to the Teabass, it’s looking a little it of a mess at the moment, I’ve been using Twitter and Flickr and Delicious on a daily basis and i wanted to integrate them into the site but I didnt have a huge amount of time to spend on it so its kind of messy right now.
I’m loving twitter and using it basically as a microblog, with delicious for marking all the cool things i find and daily pictures and photos on flickr, Teabass is more for the long and indepth posts.
With those 4 services in mind and each having an RSS feed I did a little research and whipped up this page: http://teabass.com/multifeed
It’s by no means perfect or finished, a cool concept tho, all 4 feeds have been collected and then mixed together and sorted by date with a different CSS class for each type so I can style them differently too, when its a little more polished I’m thinking of making it the index page for teabass as a one-stop-shop for all my stuff.
Oh and a new version of Mint is out, go grab it!
And those pretty new shuffles.. I want a green one really bad but I know i’ll never use it because my nano trumps in almost every way, I can’t go back to having no screen.
One last thing.. signup for this, its gunna rock!
