    Question Nyancat Auto twitter VERY IMPORATANT!!

    Lol, Ok, maybe not very important.
    I "wrote" an Imacro script which I can have loop up to 10000 times, which tweets my nyan-cat runtime every hour (or what ever).
    Code:
    VERSION BUILD=7220523 RECORDER=FX
    TAB T=1
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=DIV ATTR=TXT:Tweet<SP>Your<SP>Score
    TAB T=2
    FRAME F=0
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=INPUT:SUBMIT FORM=ID:update-form ATTR=VALUE:Tweet
    TAB T=2
    TAB CLOSE
    WAIT SECONDS=3600
    TAB T=1
    So, that works fine when the nyan-cat page has been loaded. What I want to do is have it loop every hour to infinity. What I tried to do in a bash script, was to load the nyan cat page and the macro. but when I do the macro only comes up as text.
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    firefox 'http://nyan.cat/' '/home/user/iMacros/Macros/NyanCAT!.iim'
    read
    when I include a bit to have the macro pre-load the web-page, the page refreshes, and kills my high score.

    Anyone have some ideas how I can indefinitely run / tweet my nyan-cat scores?

    Look here, Section "Command Line Support" - appearently you will need to start firefox first, wait a bit and then direct firefox to your macro. Then your bash script might work.

    You gave me an idea, for which I have no use for at this time but it would be fun to see if I could get it to work.
    I could make a twitter account, set it to private, and then have my computer tweet my IP address every so often. If I ever needed to do a remote connection, I would have the IP address.

    (I have several variations of this idea as it is, but just to do it for fun)

    This has to be the most ridiculous subject line I've ever seen.

    The normal solution is to use a dynamic DNS service.

    I Think thats how I'm going to do it. Just exhausted right now.

    I'm glad when ever my non-sense can produce usefulness. Who would have thought anything useful would ever come out of Twitter?

    The good is from Nyancat, the breakfast snack cat, she who leaves rainbows in her wake and nyans amongst the interwebz' stars. Twitter's just there by association.

    Why in the world would you keep tweeting the same ip address over and over. Why not just save the ip to your VNC/RDP client or in a text file... I'm lost.
