Nuts idea

Postby Edward » Fri Oct 29, 2010 12:10 am

So a few hours ago I got massively intoxicated.
Ideas began to fly, so I decided I want to make my coffee buying experience more seamless

I took silktest, my favourite of all automation products and I wrote automation scripts for the buying process on several of my favourite roaster websites.

HasBean, J Atkinson & Co, Ristretto

Different beans of each guys, all stuff I love and would drink any time

Function called WheelofCaffeine takes a randint 1-3 and calls the switch statement to execute the buy script for one of the roasters

A listener which polls my mail - if I receive a mail from me with the subject CAFFEINATE ME - The script gets kicked off.

So - I mail myself from my Android phone

Script picks up mail in parser and moves onto block for rest of script:

Random selection (or as close to random as possible for such a small integer) of roaster is made

Buy script automates buying process for that Roaster

I get a nice bag of coffee

Never am I gonna be disappointed with that lucky bag,

I may rethink this choice tomorrow when sober.
I may not

I sure would have fun sending a whole bunch of messages to your e-mail account! :twisted:

I decided I needed a bit of a change so I roasted some Monsooned Malabar. That was a change!
