Fixed Twitter Feed and Added Listening Links

So since Twitter updated their API, the way that this them pulls feeds wasn’t working anymore, it was really archaic anyway.  Well instead of using one of their embed widget things I created a service on another server of mine that allows for pulling of your last tweets.  You simply give it api.example.com/jordonr/5 and it will return XML with your five last tweets, it works from one to twenty.  I currently have the API caching the calls so it doesn’t have completely live data.  I built the service using perl dancer and starman as the server and memcached for caching.  More of an exercise then anything else.

Also added a link category of Listening/Listened to post the current audio books I’m listening to.  I’m a big fan of podiobooks.com and the authors that put their stuff up there, so I thought I would share what I’ve listened to.  A good place to start is with authors Nathan Lowell and Scott Sigler.  Their stuff is also available on Amazon.com (Nathan Lowell, Scott Sigler).
