Posted by Alex Bailey On May - 6 - 2012

I haven’t updated my original WordPress plugin Comment Karma in years. For a while it wasn’t working on newer versions of WordPress and was officially discontinued. However, because of the goodness of open source, Wealthy Netizen decided to take up the task of restoring it. It now works on the newest versions of WordPress and has lots of new goodies. What is it? Comment Karma is a comment rating system for WordPress. It follows websites like Reddit and lets its users upvote or downvote... (more...)

Open Source Reddit IRC Bot

Posted by Alex Bailey On March - 20 - 2012

Back when was still relevant in 2006 I coded an IRC bot that would output the link of new Digg articles as they hit the front page. While browsing old posts on my blog I saw the old and extinct project and decided to port it to Reddit. This is a simple open source project that requires .NET framework to run. It’s a simple IRC bot that parses Reddit’s RSS feed every 60 seconds. If the title of the article is unique and has not been displayed before, it outputs the title and... (more...)

My long lost RSS reader

Posted by Alex Bailey On March - 13 - 2012

Years ago when learning to program I made quite a few useful programs. The one I’m most proud of is QuickRSS which is a simple and easy to use RSS reader. Upon opening it for the first time in years, I had a chance to take an impartial look at it and noticed a few things that could be better. It’s easier for an end user to judge an application than the maker. They see things the maker doesn’t normally see and use it in ways the developer didn’t intend. However, overall... (more...)

Digg IRC Bot

Posted by Alex Bailey On September - 24 - 2006

Wrote a little app that parses Digg’s RSS feeds, and outputs any new stories into an IRC channel. Just another small app to go alone with Digg Notify. I again made a static page for it, where you can find out more info. If you’re interested in any socket programming you should check out the source to it. It’s very easy to understand, and this is a basic example of how to use it. From here it should be easy to make an IRC client or IRC bot. [Read More..]  Read More →
