Firefox Based Entertainment Kiosk

March 5, 2007

Jim Plush discusses his work building a php driven AJAXy interface for on-board entertainment. It’s an interesting enough discussion about building a simple (to users) kiosk client and server setup for massive amounts of video data on extremely low-end hardware, but it’s also filled with tidbits about the unique challenges in coding for airplanes such as, “what your web server should do when it senses turbulence.”

I now have code running on planes somewhere in the world at 30,000 feet in the sky. Please don’t be alarmed, I can’t crash your plane ๐Ÿ˜‰
