Browser Scripting

Browser Scripting

I discovered that my notes on capturing the ello feed were out of date and have corrected the page in that the stuff about ello is now useless. This page holds the general notes I made about web scripting. They may be equally out of date but I am not yet ready to delete them. My [old] notes are below/overleaf.

BT Home Hub

BT Home Hub

On 13th July 2013, I upgraded to BT Infinity, and my HH was replaced with a V4 Hub. This page is completely outdated.

This is was my bliki page detailing my use and knowledge about the hub, we’re talking V2. here.

Shell Scripting on Windows

I want to write bash scripts to be emulated using cygwin.
