My kids wanted a calendar to countdown the days until Christmas. I wrote this little php script so you can enter the number of days you want to count down and it creates a calendar you can print. I might add to it in the future so you can count up or down.. and change themes.
My good friend Jason Scott Furr had the idea to set up a junk email account and analyze the emails to see which words occur the most. I built this little script in PHP which grabs the gmail account via RSS and analyzes how many time each word occurs in the subject. The script outputs an XML file which Jason imports into Quartz Composer and converts to OSC for video mixing (screenshots coming).
There is a filter to leave out common words such as “the, and, you” etc to make the results more interesting. The filtered words can also be edited in the script.
Though the script currently analyzes an email account, it can be used with any RSS feed or feeds. Simply enter any feed urls at the top of the script and it will analyze all of them together.
j0wn is a work in progress that will eventually be a site where users can store and share their own music. It is very much in the infancy of its development. It is based on Django python web framework and uses a python wav2png script by freesound.org
This is a screen cap of the player. It is the HTML5 enabled jquery based jplayer. I themed it to use the images generated by wav2png.
