MarkV does audio

2004-09-27 16:55:02.865225+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

I've been waiting for this: Over at brainwagon, MarkV has started recording audio "shows", and while I find Adam Curry's shows interesting for the novelty value, Mark's notes are actually interesting. What I also find interesting is that the topics he rambles on aren't things he'd write about, because the formality of that would require more rigor than the topic demands. So we're richer for having heard the partial thoughts.

Anyway, I now need to make sure that I can mount the ZVUE under Linux[Wiki](update: on my desktop box modprobe usbcore; mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbstick "just worked") and write an iPodder type thingie that'll also work with video so I'll be ready when the video blogs start.

It's not exactly rocket science to write this stuff. I spent about 15 minutes when I first heard about this idea, and used Mark Pilgrim's Python "feedparser" module to download feeds and then scribble through, find the enclosures and then fork off wget to download the appropriate urls. I'd show you the code, but it is embarrassing how crufty (and easy) it was.

Thanks for the kind words. By the way, I tried using trackback from my site to yours, and nothing showed up on your end. I suspect the problem is with my end, but I though I'd ask: do trackbacks work on flutterby?

Yeah, I've actually got most of the thing written, I stopped when I tried to figure out how to put an interface on it. But that was back when I was in the "which widget set?" conundrum.

I was using Mark Pilgrim's "openanything.py" module to do the getting, I think I need to do some exploration of drag and drop, and probably do that bit with wxWindows because it'll install easier on Windows.
