Actually, this post has become less of the non-technical type and more of the technical type, however, for the sake of the cute little Nabaztag (you can send me messages too! Go here and send a message to “fatutchi”!), I keep it still in this category as well.
Today is a busy day, so I’ll have several posts.
This one will deal with the Nabaztag/tag. I have extended the PHP form/script offered in my previous post to allow for multiple Nabaztags selection. Also, added reading the ears status, and parsing the XML returned by the Nabaztag API site.
This is an ugly script, but it works. As said before – if you see fit to extend it or add features, please do so. Attached here: nabiV2.php.txt
I have noticed Violet had several issues with their site. I must confess that I have expected more from their site. As I’ve been involved as a consultant in several large-scale setups which sustained several tenth of thousands (and more) of connections per second, I know that, usually, the main performance hog is caused by an inefficient application design. It could be that Violet’s problems might just point at a low quality server-side software. Pity. I hope it will get better.
