gnomie uses [Mar. 6th, 2001|11:10 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
I just realized that gnomie has another use I didn't think of..... I can make it my URL-Viewer in pine on bradfitz.com and have links I select in my text-based HTML mail viewer open in IE also. Since it works just over TCP/IP, it doesn't matter where the hosts are... I just need to modify the client now to read a config file and take a password and do some challenge/response with the server.

I need to do some homework.... I didn't do any last night.

The MD5 code in LoserJabber is public domain, I think.

* This code implements the MD5 message-digest algorithm.
* The algorithm is due to Ron Rivest. This code was
* written by Colin Plumb in 1993, no copyright is claimed.
* This code is in the public domain; do with it what you wish.

RSA has some annoying restrictions on their MD5 code.

That's exactly what I was planning on using. :-)

Can you say that again in English for those of us who aren't computer geniuses?? It just took me 30 minutes to set up my new web cam. I understood NONE of what you just said. LOL

Re: Huh?

Really, it's not too interesting. :-)

gnomie is just a little program that lets me open up webpages on Windows from whatever other computer I'm using.

LOL!!! FINALLY! someone who never has a clue what he's talking about like me talks up! Makes me feel good that I'm not the only dumbfounded person here.

Super apologies for bugging, but didn't you say the Region directory would be updated between March 2nd and 4th...isn't it March 6th today? Don't shoot me!!

You could rig it so people can enter URLs into a form somewhere on bradfitz.com and have them open on your screen! Yeah, that should last all of 5secs before it pisses you off! :)

Slightly more sanely, you could get LiveJournal to ask gnomie to go to talkpages rather than send you comment emails! Wow, that should be fun.

In fact, that would make an interesting general-use LiveJournal feature!

Heh, I'm rambling.
