I have a set routine of things I usually when I get online. On connecting I open Thunderbird (e-mail client) and JAJC (Jabber client) from my USB memory stick, receive and check mail, access lj, reply to any comments on my journal, read my friends page, reply to posts on my friends page and bookmark any interesting sounding links viewing later. I’ve the JabRSS bot set to send me the headlines from around 15 sites so if I have enough time I’ll check through those, opening whatever pages sound interesting. If interesting enough I’ll bookmark them in a local text file (or on my wiki if I’m out and about). If I’m planning to be online for a fair bit, I’ll open up mIRC (on my USB stick too, natch) and connect to irc.fef.net for #lexx (
I’m also working on a few projects and things I need to do online atm – here are those I can remember: I need to try and see if there is a better plug-in for Winamp’s handling of flac files, especially using the media library as using the ml’s multifile edit function seems to only change the ml’s own information for each track, rather than the track itself. This also means that when I directly edit a flac file’s tags I have to fully remove it from the ml’s memory and rescan my watch folders for ml to see the updates. Bah. Oh yeah, and I need to get a plug-in for WordPress to convert lj tags into the correct image/link as WP doesn’t do this by default. I’m pretty much content with my homepage atm after a coding binge the other night working on a php script to both link to the latest image in my /images/gfx/desktop folder (my current background image is by Marc Craste, taken from the British Animation Awards site, thanks
I probably need to do some mIRC scripting again soon but I can’t think of anything required there atm. I recently converted to Fire Fox after discovering Internet Explorer incorrectly displays some of the tables on audioscrobbler.com (the last straw!!) and I need to look into extensions for that to see what other nifty things It can me made to do. Other projects I’d like to get working include having a go ar running a local DNS server (probably bind) and an apache web server with php for testing scripts without having to upload them first. I’d like to look into linux and/or BSD at some point or maybe some niche OS like BeOS or QNX.
