Hacking Umbrella Today

umbrellatoday.com let’s you know if you need a brolly or not with a simply YES or NO interface. If you don’t remember to check the site each day they can even send you an SMS, unfortunately I can’t get the SMS notifications to work in the UK so I decided to hack up an iPhone push notification.

1) Download Prowl to your iPhone and setup an account.

2) Get my script that sends the notifiaction and put it on your server somewhere, you’ll need to replace the location ID so it’s not ‘Birmingham, uk’ (p.s. it’s quite badly written, but it works)

3) Set the script up as a cron to run at say 08:50am

4) WIN!
