Zxing back on line, however...

It looks like I am not spotting when the barcode is not found correctly and the message is being added as the decoded data.

ZXing down - Grrr

ZXing server is down. There is no squinting on new images. The images are being saved as not having codes. I will have to go through them all when ZXing is online again.

Looking good!

The site is basically doing stuff. I've added links to some pictures on flickr so I should be getting some incomimg traffic. There are quite a few bugs still. Also it is not much to see when you get here. I think I need to fix the fact that small images do not work and also the errors when you scroll to and beyond the last page of images. Also should inlink bak into the site for owners or groups. Also no aging on the cache so data is not updated. Phew!

More things updated

You can now link to the site (squint.me.uk) from a comment or description in flickr. The site attempts to show you the picture and the decoded data. Please try this and let me know how you get on.

Still lots of bugs and things to fix!

Database working

The database is basically working. You can search for flickr images and then click on SQUINT. The data is retreaved and stored. If you find the image again in the search then it shows the stored data. Cannot yet look at found stuff. So site not that useful yet... Loads of work to do.

Update

I am working on the data base. I need to get this going before the site will do anything usefull. At the moment it just lists latest uploads. After the DB is completed I need to add the ability to link straight into the site and get your image ZXINGED.

New site

OK, this is a new site and a new blog. The idea is to combine zxing and flickr to create a site for reading QR codes. The idea is to extend this to cover twitpic and posible any site.
