iTunes Remote Control

I was looking for an iTunes Remote Control to control my iTunes thats running on my Mac from my Linux desktop. As I don’t find a nice solution on sourceforge.org (In fact there are several projects target on that issue, but no release and often there was just an initial commit) I wrote a simple commandline tool myself in PHP. It’s just a wrapper for the osascript command to execute AppleScript.
I can now connect to my Mac using SSH and then start the iTunesControl Script in an interactive mode and play next or previous song or something like that. (more…)

First I wanted to code, but then I realized that I don’t have the right key for the office, where I put my laptop yesterday, so I grabbed my Wacom and started painting on my second pc. Pretty nice, as I didn’t have the time to paint since months.
