Sometime in the past week, Yahoo changed their tv guide web page format, so the tv guide in my palm has been broken ever since. Today I finally got around to fixing up my tv guide building script. Someday I ought to make it less horribly embarassing and distribute it for use with hacked Tivos or something.
This was a nice little diversion. I'm getting a bit burnt out, since I keep staying up until 4. Serves me right.
Chema sent me a note; apparently the gnome-print-admin project is doing the same sort of thing as Foomatic. I have yet to look at their system, but I'm sure it will contain some interesting ideas. Hopefully it will be straightforward to write an exporter to convert my database's printer/driver data structure into their schema; it ought to be, since we seem to have the same goal and same basic ideas. The biggest thing I might expect to find there that I don't handle in Foomatic would be sensible font or color support, plus of course a pretty installer. If anyone is interested in wetting their feet in Perl XML space, writing the Foomatic-to-gnome-print-admin data conversion code would be a nice little well-defined project.
