GitHub Release: TwitterRSS-Enchancer v2

https://github.com/cvanderlinden/TwitterRSS-Enhancer Scope: Accesses the Twitter API 1.1 timeline status and authenticates with OAuth. Then takes each status and rewrites them to link @usernames to their profiles, #hashtags to their appropriate search, and links to their destination. Also includes time ago and author accreditation. A much needed update to my TwitterRSS Enhancer. This version now includes OAuth, without the need for PHP OAuth libraries. You need to create a Twitter application on to get your OAuth keys and access tokens. Once you have that, you can fill in the blanks on...


The Simpsons: Tapped Out Sound Notifications

I have a special place of disdain in my heart for games like Farmville. The Simpsons Tapped Out falls into that category. However, I do love The Simpsons so I thought I would try it out. It has some great original content but of course the whole point of the game is to buy donuts so you can build faster and do more things. Another money grab by EA.

Where my real gripe is with the sound notifications that come with the game that can't be turned off. I'm also going to place a little bit...


GitHub Release: CiviCRM Event Badge - Avery 5395 Letter Template

https://github.com/cvanderlinden/CiviCRM-Avery_5395_Letter_Badge I found the default template file not working as it was set up for A4 paper and not US letter, which is the format of badge that we have. I adjusted the values to properly line up. Easy install, just drop the Logo5395_Letter.php into /CRM/Event/Badge/ folder. Done! Might need some fine tuning, but that is what GitHub is for, so fork me!
