As noted in a previous post last night, I added normal HTTP post submission to floto in hopes of adding other clients, like the devil phone; so, here is the first submission from my isight taken using a desktop java client I added
source here as a new part of the project. I've re-organized it a little to separate the upload and cron stuff from the java stuff. The way this works is that your start it up, and are prompted with a
count down splash screen.
Next, you get to preview the image and decide whether to upload it or not.
Finally, you choose the fields to send, the URL if the path to the new form.php script.
This is more like the way floto started, because I would do HTTP posts from a J2ME app on a crappy Nokia phone, then once I migrated to the phone with horns, I decided to upload the photo as a mime attachment in an email message, and sending the meta data in the subject and body. So this is really more like the first version, except it's not on a phone. Granted I'll probably never use it again, because I hate taking pictures of myself, but it was fun little project while drinking coffee and listening to the Breaking News in the background.
