I’ve been wondering whats going to happen to all the dell and apple battery’s, it must surely be an ecological nightmare. Are they all going to be shipped to China to be dumped next to the source of a villages water supply?
I haven’t had the end of week delicious best of the web thingy happen since the 7th, turns out they’ve changed their API slightly. the URL has changed and it’s now https only. This is a bit of a problem because i’ve had a tinker and my hosting service haven’t got the openSSL php extension, well, at least I presume that’s the problem, basically php isn’t able to reach the https url. Grr.
So, I’ll either have to give up on the whole weekly delicious thing, do it manually (ugh) or tackle it differently. I was thinking I could write a php page that parses some XM.L-RPC, have delicious post their daily blog feed to it, and store what they send to it in a database. Then have a php page croned at the end of the week to stick them all together and blog it. Sort of the opposite direction to what my code was doing before, pushed instead of pulled.
