Re: what are people doing with custom notifications?

Not sure if this helps as far as AppleScript goes, but you can use many of the Automator actions for connecting to URLs. I had some problems trying to use "Get Text from Website" - it'd send double notifications. Using something like "Get Link URLs from Webpages" is technically w...

Re: Updating growl plugin

Good news! I've had some messed up Prowl.growlView installations too, had to manually delete duplicate files.

Re: Web Services/Plugins

I just posted a similar list over in another thread, but here goes: For the OSX Dashboard, I wrote a widget - Prowler - for sending quick links, phone numbers, and other notes to my phone. Includes event, message, and priority inputs (application string is hardcoded as "prowler"). It's als...

Re: what are people doing with custom notifications?

Prowl has made it's way into quite a bit of my daily routine, and I'm really loving it! Very nice platform for push notifications, and ignoring the 4 hours I spent trying to get SSLeay to work, pretty easy.

Re: iPhone loses Prowl push notifications after lock?

I've had similar issues with my phone (iPhone 3G running OS 3.1), though it almost seems at times to depend on how the Prowl notification is first initiated - via the regular Growl plugin, things appear more reliable, while using prowl.pl or the web interface the alerts do not always pop up. As soon...

Re: Error 500 posting a Prowl event

I had to set my usr/local/share/man folder to 777. Once that was done, the freshly updated CPAN could install Crypt::SSLeay, and it appears to be working. No idea why I've had so much trouble (I take that back, it's 99% probable it was just user stupidity)... but happy that it's finally ok!

Re: Error 500 posting a Prowl event

What version of Mac OS X are you using? OS 10.5.7, with Xcode 3.1.3 installed. EDIT: I think I originally messed up my CPAN installation, after running updates, reinstalling it (at least, I think that's what it was... it took nearly half an hour of running through files!), and reloading, I can fina...

Re: Error 500 posting a Prowl event

You need to install Crypt::SSLeay (see the FAQ for directions). Unfortunately, I can't get it to install. Even using alternate instructions (http://note19.com/2008/08/30/mac-os-x-perl-and-ssl/) returns the same error in the terminal: Running install for module Crypt::SSLeay The module Crypt::SSLeay...

Perian disables Final Cut colour compatibility

When working with h264 files, it's especially apparent - gamma and colours are unnaturally shifted unless "Enable Final Cut Studio colour compatibility" is checked in the Quicktime General preferences. However, if Perian is installed, this setting makes no difference - the compatibility is...
