Simple Twitter Streaming For Go

· Posted in Programming
I scratched my own itch. I made twitterstream I was working on a little script to pull some images from Twitter, and wasn't happy with what was out there. The ruby gems available were throwing random exceptions or just pulled the JSON down into a hash. I'm all about the Go programming language lately, so I started working in Go instead. There were two libraries available, both named twitterstream, but neither worked the way I liked. Both use oat…

Catch Up On Twitter faster

· Posted in Programming
So you missed Twitter for a day? Have a long list of updates along the lines of "OMG this ice cream is fantastic!" to sort through? Fear no more, for I have the solution. Well. If you're using Chrome. I made a little Chrome extension that filters out tweets that have no actual links in them. Actual links are 'web' links, not links to user profiles or hashtags. Tweets are interesting and all, and if you are keeping up with them, a few about rando…

Tweet Link Rollover

· Posted in Meta
I don’t like visiting sites for something really simple. Reading a single tweet is one of them. If I link to a tweet, you shouldn’t have to go to Twitter to view it. It’s just 140 characters. So what did I do? I added some codes to my blog to pull those tweets in. If I link to a tweet, I can go off to Twitter, pull in the tweet and set the ‘title’ attribute on the anchor tag so when you hover over the link, it shows the tweet text. Yay! From thi…

FeedBurner Is Awesome, Github Is Breaking, And This Is A Test

· Posted in Meta
FeedBurner has a new feature out, since Google announced their URL shortener. I originally had logic to shorten the permalinks with tr.im, then post to Twitter, but since FeedBurner can do this now, I'm not going to do it. I like to outsource that kind of stuff, which I'll talk about in a later post. Also in the news today, Github is having some problems, but they'll be back soon, so don't you worry. All in all, this is more of a test to see how…

What Do Programmers Really Do?

· Posted in Editorial
Indeed. What do we do? Well I was curious. WTF you might say. "You're a programmer! Shouldn't you know what you do?" Well yes, I know what I do. What I mean is what do programmers do while programming besides programming. I myself write the codes (duh) and hang out on Twitter and listen to podcasts, watch movies, listen to music, and sometimes I just concentrate so hard I forget to eat. I was curious to see what everybody else did while hacking;…

Post Twitter To identi.ca

· Posted in Software
So I signed up at identi.ca a while ago, but never really did anything with it. I also found Yahoo Pipes a while ago, and put it on my Todo List to look at, but that was about it. I don't know why I didn't think to look at it to do this. Anyway. Pipes lets you manipulate pretty much anything, RSS feeds being one of them. You can feed things around, or pipe them, and alter contents, do whatever. After a little Google work, I found this pipe that …
