  • PlayGUI: a program that should use MPD

    January 19th, 2006
    music, playgui, tech
    Back in August, when I was thinking of how to get a program that allows several people to remotely control a central music server, a friend recommended "mpd". Not remembering correctly I looked up mplayerd, which has since dropped off the net. It didn't do what I wanted and wasn't reliable, so I wrote my own. I talked to him again over break, and found that he was really recommending mpd. I went off to have a look at mpd and it does seem a better program, especially server-side. It does everything PlayMusicD does and more. The clients though, are not quite as impressive as the server. I think I may rewrite PlayGUI to be a mpd client. The language they're using is not that different from the one I wrote PlayGUI to use, and the ways in which it is different seem to be better. So perhaps this weekend PlayGUI will be reincarnated as somejavampcpun.

    When I got my loft bed it was just so annoying every morning to have to get out of bed, climb down the ladder, turn the light on, and climb back up, just so I could see stuff. I decided to make a string for my light switch because I really wanted to be abl…
