AFKIM News – New keyboard preview

Heres an update for everyone on the current afkim progress.

The current todo list for the next version is looking fairly big, but there is alot of good things in there to wait for 🙂

I’ve been working on a new keyboard, there is a test version of it you can try Here
Raw images of OSK are available Here (gimp format) if you want to change the gfx.

And as you’ve seen on the AFKIM splash screen, AFKIM was entered in the Neo-Flash Competition, you can vote for AFKIM here:,1941.45.html

I’ve also fixed the paypal link, it had the wrong email address (woops!). Feel free to sling something my way 😉


Bug fix version (1b) released, check the subsite for the download.

The last 2 weeks have been exceedingly busy for myself. I’ve been working on a secret project, which I now get to reveal!!!

AFKIM – Away From Keyboard Instant Messenger (for psp of course)
Its an Instant messenger client for (almost) all the major protocols (AIM, ICQ, MSN, GTalk, Yahoo!)
It is powered by the public bitlbee servers (thanks for these! Don’t email the bitlbee people with questions about AFKIM!)

Go to its subsite here for the download link!

I’ve thrown up a paypal account if you are feeling generous 🙂

webnab 0.4a

webnab has been updated to 0.4a in response to pspupdates new look which broke their feed 😉
Luckily, their new feed is nicer (ish) so its all good.
I’ve noticed that their rss feed is missing all the apostrophes, not my fault!

Mini fix for PSPUpdates new theme, we now use their RSS feed instead of parsing the main site.
PSPUpdates and Slashdot are now stored in the feeds.txt instead of being hardcoded, so you can remove them or do whatever 😉
The monkey is back on the default skin 🙂

Available here as usual

webnab 0.4

Webnab 0.4 is out!

This version is definately more pleasing on the eyes.
It generally has better international support thanks to freetype and some utf8 stuff I wrote, but it’s not working right all the time.

Font rendering now done with freetype, you should be able to replace the included font file with another named the same.
Fixed up rss feeds that put the data in a block (like wordpress blogs)
When there is no items in a new feed, don’t leave the psp in a state where it can crash.
Fix rendering of news items with long titles.
Give news items an additional line to use.
You can now abort downloading a feed by pressing square and triangle.
When downloading we now report the size downloaded instead of printing dots.

At the usual place
