webCT API and gnome patch

webct api

This morning i’ve been playing with WebCT API, cause i was thinking some time ago about providing integration between WebCT and CEVUG homepage with an autosignon procedure. So, i made a perl script, and it runs well, but… it did nothing about password. No? No. It seems that webCT API is only about generatin a MAC (Authentication Code) with md5, but nothing about verifying the password… so, we have 2 problems. f***.

gnome patch?
I’ve been thinking these days about a simple little patch to gnome panel screenshot. So i jhbuild my gnome 2.9.x system and i find the files i was searching for in gnome-utils/gnome-screenshot. I will try to add a function like:

char *screenshot_dialog_get_viewer (ScreenshotDialog *dialog);

and use:

GnomeVFSMimeActionType gnome_vfs_mime_get_default_application(const char *mime_type)

so i can open the just captured image with the default image editor (GIMP, eog…) for the current mime type (PNG, JPG, whatever…)

or perhaps gnome_vfs_mime_get_all_applications, gnome_vfs_mime_type_get_short_list_applications for a list of posibilities.

  1. Life experience teaches that we generally get back what we put out. If we don’t like what we are getting back, we should examine what we are putting out.
