    think roughly translates to You ve got two chance s Buckleys and None Now finally after many years of waiting to see what the commercial networks would do with their new found Powah we have the launch of 9 s and subsequently WIN Televisions Channel Go Yes folks this new channel even has an exclamation mark obviously to signal the break from the old model of running second rate programming interspersed with as many ads as hrmm ummm Damn I knew there was a problem there Let s take tonights viewing on Channel Go 11WTFBBQ 1 First up we had Dog a reality show about a Bounty Hunter in Hawaii This was followed by the classic New Zealand production Neighbours At War a show based on the concept of finding truly petty people and then involving the local MP for some reason It was all rounded off by a programme called Bad Lads Army in which 30 of Britains chaviest were treated to life in the 1950 s National Service All through this we were treated to numerous ads showing how hip and now Channel Go 11WTFBBQ is telling us how they were going to be the first with such

  • Google Wave - Don't Bite Off More Than You Can Chew | James Purser
    m seeing with the Google Wave is to complicated to get type claims being tweeted and blogged about People have rushed in cramming as much as they can in as little time as possible and then when the inevitable mess occures they declare that Wave is all too complicated and won t be a success To them I say the same thing I say to my kids Don t bite off more than you can chew The World of Wave isn t some monolithic entity that demands that you understand all before being allowed into the secret club Take me for instance I do not pretend to understand the intracacies of Operational Transformations and yet I am still forging ahead with building openausbot and learning how to setup and operate the WRS Because I can understand those areas without the need to understand the underlying magic that allows for the WRS and Robots to work With every new technology there is a learning curve For users it s going to be getting used to the new real time way of communicating and collaborating For developers it depends on the area they are interested in Robot and Gadget writers are getting their heads around the Wave API which is a little bit of a moving target at the moment but that s understandable this early in the game Server and Client writers have probably the steepest learning curve at the moment but they are getting there I think I m starting to ramble so I ll just bring it back to my original point If you think the Wave is too big to chew on break it down small bites means less chance of choking Blog Catagories googlewave James Purser s blog Add new comment Comments Exactly right Permalink Submitted by

  • WRS - The Next Step | James Purser
    is going to need and why Client The WRS needs a web based client for a couple of reasons The Wavesandbox client demonstrates many of the features that make Wave teh awesome The text console while good for doing very basic testing cannot replicate many of those features inline blips anyone picture pasting So in order to demonstrate the real power of hosting your own Wave Server we need a WRC Wave Reference Client The code of the WRC would need to be able to demonstrate exactly how best to use the existing and hence defacto standard protocols for communicating between the server and the client This will greatly aid in the design of both the future real standard as well as new clients both web and native Persistance Currently the WRS has no way of tracking waves beyond the next restart All information is kept in memory rather than accessing a RDBMS or other storage method This means that all information about the current past waves are lost when you shutdown the server Being able to connect the WRS to a storage method would give a much better idea of the requirements for operating your own Wave infrastructure particularly in terms of performance and hardware required User Management Similarly the WRS has no way of validating connecting clients This means that your WRS is the Wave equivelant of an open relay allowing anyone to connect and do as they will So what the WRS needs is a way to manage those users who are allowed to connect to the server and utelise its services Extensions I have it on good authority that an extensions layer is being worked on for the WRS which will allow people to build their own Robot Gadget setups so I can t wait to

  • WRS Installer Script | James Purser
    Redhat based distro s but this is basically untested The script itself is meant to manage the downloading and installing of the various pieces of software required to setup the server It doesn t handle the Openfire management or DNS setup you will require One of the issue regarding the script and RH based distro s is that Sun s JDK isn t available by default rather they carry the OpenJDK No testing has been done with the WRS and OpenJDK so it s entirely possible that something will break Anyway download and let me know how you go Blog Catagories googlewave gwsug James Purser s blog Add new comment Comments The link is 403 ing for me Permalink Submitted by Jeremy Visser on Sat 01 08 2009 14 58 The link is 403 ing for me reply Fixed Permalink Submitted by James Purser on Sat 01 08 2009 22 46 Okay I ve fixed the link issue Also an updated version of the script that much better supports Fedora Redhat based Distros reply Google Wave seems to work with OpenJDK Permalink Submitted by Alberto Gonzále on Sun 02 08 2009 20 12 I didn t use your script but

  • Introducing Politico Bloggers | James Purser
    put any Gov20 projects I was working on It started out as a simple blogroll of Gov20 blogs from around the country and then languished there awaiting new inspiration Inspiration came while I was doing some work on openausbot As I was searching through the OpenAustralia member entries I started to wonder how many Politicians actually blog So using Da Powah of Drupal I decided to put together Politico Bloggers also known as polliebloggers on twitter The idea is to create a list of those politicians who run legitimate blogs that is blogs that aren t blatant PR feeds have rss feeds and allow commenting The list would be divided by nation as well as Government level For the moment it s going to be elected reps rather than Public Service types however I can see that coming as well There s a lot that needs to be done still but one thing I ve learnt already is that there a large number of Federal members who don t actually seem to have a web site let alone a blog and that rss feeds are in short supply on those blogs that are run So if you know of a
