Just because it took me ages to figure some of this out as –help is HUGE and doesn’t contain some of the options.

Recursive download

Web2Messenger Gone


Written by

Well, after less than a year since I wrote the Web2Messenger (W2M) PHP API, it looks as though it has finally died.

When I was using the system for my dissertation and also writing the API, I did notice a lack of support and now finally it ha totally gone.

The forums return an SQL error and all the bots are offline which means all is sleepy in the W2M world.

It it sad to see such a service to but no worries, Microsoft have released some code for Windows Live Messenger to integrate into PHP.

Check it out over at CodePlex.

Web Systems for Uni


Written by

I have created two working systems for my university course, the first being my Server Status checker and the second being Wonderful Wiki, Wiki system.

Both these systems were created in PHP and are fully working. I will try and release the source code at some point for people to download and I may continue to develop the systems but in the foreseeable future these systems will just be archived and readily available.

Update: Please note, since I developed my dissertation; the server status checker, Twitter has removed the support for the authentication being used, so the demo may not work correctly.

Pretty PHP File Lister


Written by

While I was developing a site for someone, it required a File and folder lister it also required to look pretty with icons and stuff.

So I have developed some code which you can download (lister-1.0.zip).

It is just the raw first version of the code, replace ‘archive.php‘ with what ever your php page is and change ‘archive‘ with the folder that is required to be listed.

I will try to refine the code at a later date.
