this morning i spent about half an hour getting everyone in the office on ichat/im/[insert your preferred client here]. now we can use the ‘current itunes track’ function in ichat to show everyone in the office what’s playing on the stereo so we (meaning “i”) don’t have to yell out, “hey, who is this??” every 5 minutes.
idea thrown out before deciding on ichat: buying a big scrolling billboard sign and hanging it above the stereo. write custom interface program to send current tracks in real-time to the scrolling sign from the pc. would be cool if i could get it to work, but i’ve no idea how to do that. if anyone out there does know how to do that, by all means let me know.
ah, the gods of nerdery are smiling on me today.
