I've built a few POE components, look on the [POE Components List] Also, I've released some modules on [CPAN]

See my ContactMe page for my number.

Modules I work on and maintain

Projects with a ** are being actively worked on
  • WWW::GMail
    • You can login, retrieve messages, list messages, and get contacts.
  • Trickster?
    • I've added on demand streaming, and multichannel support.
    • You can listen to another person's channel (thier list of music)
    • I've also added shoutcast multiplexing. ie, many listners for 1 stream
    • I've also added resampling. ie, you can listen to a 128kbit song at 64kbit (set by channel not listener)
  • POE::Component::EasyDBI
    • Yes, yet ANOTHER PoCo database interface in is in the wild. I wasn't satisifed with any of the others
    • It is based off [SimpleDBI] and it offers BIG differences:
      • Chunked queries: Say you request a query that will return 30,000 rows, You can set the chunk at 3,000 and you get 10 events with 3,000 rows each. A last_chunk key will let you know the query is finished.
      • Extra data passed in will be passed back (even on every chunk), (postbacks can be sent with the query)
      • More query types! Read the docs and you'll find out that you can get data back in ways that help you get things done faster.
    • Available on [CPAN]
  • POE::Component::Client::MSN
  • POE::Component::BitTorrent
    • File handling is complete, and peer protocol is done. Algorythm needs to be done.
