I am the ghost of groovymother.com. Woooooo!

This is an old page from Rod Begbie's blog.

It only exists in an attempt to prevent linkrot. No new content will be added to this site, and links and images are liable to be broken. Check out begbie.com to find where I'm posting stuff these days.

Browser VNC client, implemented plugin-free in JavaScript using HTML5 websockets and canvas. I love this future.

Real-time pageview monitoring, built on node.js, mongodb and WebSockets. Would love to throw this up on a big plasma screen in our team area at work.
