    OS X: Slim iChat Status Applet

    As a small bit penance for the off-topic nature of the flame war between myself and a certain unix sysadmin today, here's something for OS X people.

    This is an applet you can run to set your iChat status to what's playing on your Slim Devices player.

    You can download it from http://monkey.teevee.net/slimstatus.sit (21K)

    Source is below, but you can just open the applet in Script Editor.

    Requirements: iChat AV (sorry, folks, it's scriptable)

    Edit the script to put in your own slimplayer URL and authentication (if any). By default it uses whatever your default player is. If you have more than one, edit the script to put in the MAC address of the player you want the script to control. got more than one player? Um, make a copy of the script and rename them accordingly, with the right MAC address in each one. Or e-mail me -- I've got a version that supports two players, but I am not a programmer and don't have the time right now to deconstruct it so that the one-player and two-player version are part of the same applet.

    Feel free to send me feedback. I use this now and then. It's kind of fun to show people what I'm playing, and when I'm at home with my SliMP3 those iTunes-iChat tools just don't cut it!

    -- set your player URL here
    property slimplayer_server : {"http://slimserver:9000"}
    --if you have more than one player, put the MAC address of the one you want to control here
    property mac_player : {""}
    --if you're using authentication, put the username and password here
    property slimplayer_username : {""}
    property slimplayer_password : {""}
    property curlURL : {""}
    property thePlayer : {""}

    on run {}

    -- build the URL for curl

    if slimplayer_username is "" then
    set url_authentication to ""
    else
    set url_authentication to (" -u " & slimplayer_username & ":" & slimplayer_password)
    end if

    set curlURL to (url_authentication & " -i " & slimplayer_server & "/status.txt" & "?player=" & mac_player)

    end run

    on idle

    set the_data to do shell script "curl " & curlURL
    set txtLst to every paragraph of the_data as list
    repeat with i from 1 to number of items in txtLst
    set this_item to item i of txtLst
    if this_item contains "x-playerartist:" then set x_artist to find(this_item, ":")
    if this_item contains "x-playertitle:" then set x_title to find(this_item, ":")
    if this_item contains "x-playermode:" then set x_mode to find(this_item, ":")
    -- insert other actions here
    end repeat

    if x_mode is "play" then
    setStatus("╗" & x_artist & " - " & x_title)

    else if x_mode is "pause" then
    setStatus("(Paused) " & x_artist & " - " & x_title)

    else if x_mode is "stop" then
    setStatus("Slim Device Stopped")
    else
    setStatus("At Home")
    end if

    return 30

    end idle

    on find(an_item, the_offset)
    set headerContent to (characters ((offset of the_offset in an_item) + 2) thru -1 of an_item) as string
    return headerContent

    end find


    on setStatus(newStatus)
    tell application "iChat" to set status message to newStatus
    end setStatus

    Similar apologies for the poor behavior elicited from myself by a
    certain magazine editor, who feels it necessary to drag employment into
    the discussion.

    Many apologies. Did that go to the list? It was supposed to only go
    directly to Jason.

    If only there were some easy way to ensure that didn't happen by
    accident.

    Oh, well.
