Updated GTD-PHP POP3 Inbox Import

by on Aug.04, 2009, under Uncategorized

So I have been using the new script this morning, and testing adding new actions from the GroupWise account at work. Here is where I encountered some issues.

GroupWise decides it wants to MIME Encode the email, which brings about my first problem. I need to account for multiple MIME Parts. After resolving this my next issue is that the corporate email gateway decides to append a massive disclaimer at the bottom of the email, bloating my item by at least 1000%. So I implemented the ability to cut out disclaimers based on a stripos call. I can have a list of different filters here and it will cut them all out.

After fixing this up and resolving the functional issues I logged this addon as a ticket in the GTD-PHP Trac system.

GTD-PHP Import from POP3 Mail

by on Aug.04, 2009, under Home, Scripting, Tweet

I have been attempting to get a fully working system set up for David Allens Getting Things Done. To this end I have set up an install of GTD-PHP.

Being the kind of person who likes to adapt, change, and implement better solutions, particularly for myself, I created a list of features I would like to see in my GTD-PHP installation. One of the first problems I had with the existing system was that it does not support importing Inbox items from a real mail Inbox.

I did some research and came across an existing mail importer, however this required directly piping mail from SMTP into the php script, which I could not do on my host (or would prefer not to do).

Real life has intervened again in my plans to get on with creating a well-designed Breakout Clone. I spent most of yesterday either commuting between the Hardware Store and the Apartment trying to get as many things fixed in it as possible. It was in a right state before hand, but now has new carpet laid, the old shower screen has been removed and replaced with a rail and curtain, and the Venetian blinds in the Kitchen and Bed 2 have been replaced with new, clean, white ones. I am still awaiting the Vertical Blinds to go into the Lounge and Bed 1 though.

Next things to consider doing will be: kickboards in the kitchen need replacing, carpets upstairs need replacing, a fresh coat of paint – and a more sophisticated choice of colour, stairwell needs to be sanded back and properly varnished. It will probably be another 6 months to a year before any other works can be started, so it may be a while.

Laying a Cable

by on Mar.07, 2009, under Home

I haven’t had a chance yet to go back to designing Breakout properly, or any other game related projects. I have, however, been cabling up the house so I can start using my new office.

Doing a cable drop in this house was a nightmare. Firstly, it’s on a slab so I couldn’t run cable below the house. Secondly, there are too many beams in the roof that cover cavity space, so I had to drill through about 4-5 inches of timber before reaching the cavity. Thirdly, there is not 1 noggin in the wall, there are two, so I had to do some massive drill bit extension to do the boring. Lastly, a couple of the extension bits I bought SUCKED! When you pull them up they ‘press’ the release mechanism, so I had extension bits in the wall with my spade bit – not fun to get out >:( .

I had never run Network cable myself before (except Coax) so crimping the RJ45 ports was a new experience. Ended up being just as easy as using the Krone tool on the phone frames at work. I figured it would be. Hopefully now that I have moved into my new home-office I can get back to work on my XNA Game Development work.
