mp3 radio GUI
119th day of 2004
Here's an awes0me update on this painful project my friend Jian and I are working on. First, about the project..

We call this "the mp3 radio." The lucky user creates a playlist of mp3s on his computer, then hits the "Broadcast MP3" button. Then, like magic, MP3 data of your selected songs will be sent through the RS232 serial connection from COM1 to an external microcontroller. There, like magic once again, the data is sent to a decoder and finally transmitted through frequency-modulation (FM) to a nearby radio. Here's the GUI part of it.

Surprisingly, this is actually created from PHP, the same language NuTang is written in. However, it requires the GTK module. The serial com stuff's already been coded—mostly, with some minor bugs. All in all, this project t0tally r0XoR, except it's killing me quickly.

So, now that I've made your day, I'm gonna head to bed. Lat0r.

Oh God... Another question from *GASP* ME!
Why is it that in my entries, everything is one great big paragraph, no matter how many times I hit enter, it's all one great big blob. There's no order at all, lol. Please help me!

Haha, I found saw the generate line breaks thing and was like, "Oh duh!" Is there any way to make it so it stays checked? If not, oh well, haha. I'll just have to remember!
