ROMChecker, a python script to check for new Android ROMs and notify your phone.

I’ve recently been running the rather excellent PAC-ROM nightlies on my Galaxy Note II, and wrote a simple python script to alert me via Android push notification when a new build is available using the Pushover API.

This gets run as a cron job on one of my servers. It might be a bit niche, but I thought I’d post the code on my GitHub anyway in case anyone else finds it useful:

Ermahgerd, I blerged!

I’m back! Well, as “back” as I can be seeing as how I never actually went anywhere.

Anyway, I’ve brushed the e-dust off the blog (damn stuff gets everywhere) because I want a place to put a few things:

  • Multirotor stuff. I’ve built a tricopter! It’s based on a these RCExplorer designs, but with a few modifications of my own, which I’d like to document in case they’re useful to anyone else. You’ll be able to read about it here, and see it looming ominously in a patch of sky above you soon.
  • Software. I’m planning to tidy up a few scripts and programs I’ve written and publish them.
  • Squidy! It’s been a while, but the plot thickens.

I’ve also had a bit of a tidy up, fixing broken links and layout issues.

More to come soon!
