Fucking Facebook.

Dear Lazyweb,

Is there any way to post to a Facebook page's wall from a script? Despite having an "API key" and a "secret key" for an app, WWW::Facebook::API seems to still make you log in by launching a web browser and making you log in there. Obviously this won't work from cron.

I need this since Facebook has a 16+ hour delay when posting the RSS feed of the @dnalounge Twitter stream to Facebook, so all of the "event starting now" twits are showing up days late.

My original plan of "wait for Facebook to get their heads out of their asses and start polling RSS feeds more often than every couple of days" doesn't seem to be panning out.

Sheep. Meth. Tasers... And a towel we can throw away after.

What could go wrong?

The study that appears in the journal Academic Emergency Medicine openly lists a few caveats. Aside from being partially funded by Taser International, the study authors include two physicians who represent medical consultants and stockholders of the company. One of the two is also the medical director of Taser International.

This is almost as good as when That Bastard Edison killed the elephant in an attempt to discredit Tesla.

Previously, previously.

jwz video mixtape 087

I "officially" stopped making my mixtapes back in April 2009, but then -- oops -- I seem to have continued posting sets of music videos about once a month anyway, so I guess I didn't actually stop, I just slowed down and changed format. So I've gone back and retroactively numbered those video collections, packaged them up into Youtube playlists, and listed them on the mixtapes page as well.

And here is the new one.

Instead of them all being embedded individually one after the other, they're in a single multi-video player. This seems saner to me, though it's somewhat more of a pain in the butt to accomplish.

Plans for the 10KY clock!

The Long Now Foundation has published all of the plans for the first clock prototype as DWG, PDF and a book! So now you can build your own, I guess.
