# Comments added 6 March 2014.
# Implementation of the MetaWeblog API for my personal Ruby static blog generator.
# This is not even nearly idiomatic Ruby. There are all kinds of issues.
# (What's with the method interiors all being mushed-up together?)
# But -- it's also worked flawlessly for five years without my having to edit it.
# It won't work for anyone else as-is — but if it helps anyone
# to do a MetaWeblog API implementation, then cool.

How to stream the London 2012 Olympics

There have been several HOWTOs posted regarding streaming the 2012 Olympics using HTTP / SOCKS proxies via SSH and other similar methods. None of these actually work using the latest Flash on Mountain Lion (with Firefox, Chrome or Safari). Additionally, the third-party streaming sites don't provide BBC's amazing interface, which lets you quickly skip to individual competitors and events. However, setting up an OpenVPN server does work, with some tweaks. You'll get the exact same UX that people in England receive.
