Android Kiosk Player

Oddjob project I put together. This is an android app that is intended to be put into a kiosk. I chose to go with an Android app so I could go fullscreen on the app and so no one could close the app. The app contains 5 videos that were interviews, a user would click on a thumbnail of the video and it would go fullscreen and play, after it was done it would close. The app ran successfully, non-stop for 3 months straight and did not crash. Source Code

New Website!

I’ve officially finished the new, re-vamped Solex website. As good as my old one was, it was not getting the search results I was wanting due to ajax.load(). According to many different posts across the internet using that method would not hinder crawlers from going through your site,

This is a clock with the space video playing in the background! Originally I wanted to make a rotary engine clock, but rotary engines are really confusing to make animate based off the second hand so I put the video in instead. This is how I did it:

Bash Vocal Curl Mail Checker (Linux only)

One of my favs, superior to the “You’ve got mail” phenomenon. When called this will say “You have new mail in your inbox” then will say who the message is from and whatever is in the subject line. Great for not wasting time checking for spam. Requires festival, linux, and gmail-checker to call the script on new e-mail. Replace YOUR_EMAIL with… your e-mail (ie johndoe@microsoft.com) and YOUR_PASSWORD with your e-mail’s password.

#!/bin/bash echo “You have new mail in your inbox,” > gmailreport ##echo ” ” >> fungmail.txt curl -u YOUR_EMAIL:YOUR_PASSWORD –silent “https://mail.google.com/mail/feed/atom” | tr -d ‘\n’ | awk -F ” ‘{for (i=2; i<=NF; i++) {print $i}}’ | sed -n “s/
