So, I'm not totally convinced on the Twitter thingyet, but I'm an information junkie, so how canI resist?
Twitter will feed you messages via SMS, IM, or you can go to the website. However, I don't doSMS, the IM has been broken since I started playingwith Twitter, and the web site is a web site. I don't really 'check' web sites anymore.
So, I was thinking on the drive home from workthat I should hook Twitter up with Growl. In fact,I figured someone must have already done this.And they have.The first couple I looked at on google were Ruby, and didn'tseem fully operational, so I thought I'd write one. Andhere it is.It's rough; you'll have to install a Python library, andinstall wget. You can do it.
Took a total of 1.5 hours; my Python is a bit rusty; hadto consult the manual constantly. But there's somethingjust fun about writing Python; I should do more.
