Geek Squared

I wrote a LiveJournal client! Well... sort of. It's not like a whole LiveJournal client.

It's actually a little application that lets you get pictures from your Sprint PCS camera phone directly to LiveJournal. Here's how it works:

I take a picture with my phone and email it to myself. The client watches my mailbox for emails that contain camera phone pictures. When it finds one, it downloads the picture, then uploads it to my ftp server. Then, it makes a LiveJournal post with the picture and the caption that I entered when I sent it. Supa-fly.

It's not totally finished yet, but it's basically working and reliably posting to stevetest. If you have PCS Vision service from Sprint and a camera phone and you'd like to try it out, then e-mail me and I'll hook you up.

That is unbelievably hip. I've been very tempted to instead of buying Matt some cheapy phone and adding him to my plane, getting myself a cam phone and giving him my old one. I gotsta find one cheap tho. Sprint is such a bitch...

yeah... sprint is a pain in the ass, but working in the wireless data industry, i can tell you that they all pretty much suck, and sprint sucks the least in a lot of ways.

my phone retails for like $400, but i called them up and told them i hate them and would switch carriers if they didn't do something nice. so they gave me $100 off, plus a $50 rebate, plus work paid for $150 of it, so i scored. i like having a camera on my phone.
