Gmail — The Sequel

Whoo hoo! When I turned on my desktop computer this morning the Gmail tally in my taskbar had some trouble logging in.

Last.fm Radio Protocol

During the weekend I decided to hack together my own last.fm radio player in Python. I had found the My Playlist station pretty useless after being treated to the same three songs over and over again, and set out to code a player that would autoskip any songs I’ve already listened to once during a […]
