+This Day in Tech
+This is a set of scripts and console applications that
+dump text entries from Tom Merritt's Chronology of Tech
+History book for the current day.
+
+https://merrittbooks.squarespace.com/2012/10/17/chronolog
+y-of-tech-history
+
+It's a nice bit of geeky fun. The idea of this scripts
+was to be able to use it in Message of the Day type
+setups.
+
+Download
+
+The binaries are available from
+http://kinggeek.co.uk/download in the tdit folder.
+The source from http://kinggeek.co.uk/source
+
+Installation
+There are console versions that can be/are compiled for
+Linux, OSX, and Windows.
+
+It uses an sqlite3 database for it's storage so you need
+probably need this installed on your system if it isn't
+already. A Windows DLL is included with the windows
+binary which should take care of this. On OSX it should
+work out of the box. On linux you might need to install
+sqlite3. On Redhat type distros something like
+
+yum install sqlite
+
+should do the job. On Debian style distros something like
+
+apt-get install sqlite3
+
+Should do the trick.
+
+Command line usages options for the console program:-
+You can copy the database to /etc for linux distros, or
+you can specify where to find the db with the -d command
+line option. The help from the console app:-
+
+This Day in Tech
+Based on Tom Merritt's Chronology of Tech History
+Usage: tdit [-d databasefile] [-r] [--help]
+
+-d databasefile : specify the database file to use.
+                  Will try /etc/tdit.db or ./tdit.db if
+                  not specified or found.
+-r              : print a single random entry for the day
+                 (otherwise print all entries)
+--help          : print this help
+
+
+Plain ol' PHP
+
+There is a plain PHP version which can be used by
+including the edit_functions.php file and calling the
+tdit() function:-
+
+function tdit($action)
+
+  returns a string with This Day in Tech Quote(s).
+
+Specify the strings 'all' or 'random' as the $action
+parameter to print all entries for today, or just a
+single random one respectively.
+
+function tdit_dm($action,$day,$month)
+
+Does as above but lets you specify a day and month. There
+is also test script which dumps the whole book.
+
+Joomla Plugins
+
+There is a Joomla 2.5 and a Joomla 1.5> version.
+
+Tested with only  Joomla 3.0 and Joomla 1.5 because that
+is what I had access to.
+
+Install the plugin in the normal way. You need sqlite3
+php support on your server (usually built in to PHP5+).
+To use the plugin, in your content insert
+
+{tdit}single{/tdit}
+
+or
+
+{tdit}all{/tdit}
+
+and the text above will be replaced in an article with
+the either a single event for the day or all the events
+for the day as a unordered list with the css class
+tdit_list.
+
+NB: If you get no output for an entry check the
+tdit/tdit_functions.php  file in the joomla plugin
+install. The htmlentities function was causing output to
+disappear on one server I tried it on. YMMV.
+
+
+Building the console programs from source
+
+Download the source code from here. Extract the archive
+somewhere. I've built successfully so far for 32 bit
+linux, 64 bit linux, 32 bit OSX and for 32 bit Windows
+(on 64 bit windows).
+
+For windows you need a MinGW/msys setup. Though it should
+build easily enough with any C complier.
+
+It just seemed to work on OSX. On linux you need the
+usual gcc GNU make etc.
+
+To build:-
+
+cd into the extracted directory.
+
+
+Just type:-
+
+make -f nameofthemakefilefortheplatformyouron
+
+e.g.
+
+make -f Makefile.linux
+
+And it should all build.
+
+NB: The Makefile.linux32 makefile is to build a 32bit
+binary on a 64bit linux system.
+
+Follow the installation instructions to install.
