Gumtree RSS Tool

Gumtree RSS Tool


I was playing about with gumtree and realised it could really do with a little more advanced searching, but with no API it only offered its data out in RSS format. I was looking for a PS3 but only wanted to highlight offeres within a certain range so ended up this tool to highlight adverts which fall within my criteria. Its still under developement but the basics are there, I may have it export out an email or its own RSS filtered down so I can spot those bargains.

Quote Database


I came across a bunch of old files which still make me laugh, so I thought I would try to consolidate them into a repository and maybe have some fun with the results

google.api picasa photos


I Have been experimenting with the Google API for Photos .net library - its been interesting journey into Classes using ObjectDataSource control and Datalist with ImageButton and Linkbutton for display, firing the OnSelectedIndexChanged with DataKeyField event of the Datalist to show the required gallery.
This version uses the .net Client library with a wrapper class with a custom data class to store parts of the PicasaEntry objects.

Custom Blog Engine


working on writing a simple blog engine. I tried BlogEngine.net 1.6 which was very good but I decided I wanted to write my own simple version, learning about creating an authenticated website, using CSS stylesheets while integrating AjaxControlToolkit along the way.
So far it displays the stories with a list of titles that can be clicked. Posting a story is possible once logged into the website.
EasyNews Viewer

EasyNews viewer


bit of a rubbish little test application. It requires a valid account to Easynews. Once logged in it retrieves a list of groups which contain images, then lists all the .jpg found within that group once selected. The list can then be played back on a slideshow. Its a bit slow and uses html source parsing instead of any API.

CelebrityMovieArchive Viewer

Cma viewer


One of the first applications I wrote playing about with html parsing. Its not really complete and is still quite buggy. It scans CelebrityMovieArchive.com and pulls down the images for viewing pleasure.
