How would I do this...?

There is a neat website where you can type something in and it appears on their LED sign, which is then broadcast on the website via webcam.


Can anyone out there help me make one of these? I did ask the owner, and he gave me a list of 3 things I could use (or possibly will need).

1) A Reverse-engineered Linux floppy controller driver
2) A Linux daemon to listen to a TCP/IP socket
3) A PHP-based web interface to allow people to enter messages

If no one can suggest tutorials, would anyone be willing to partner up and make our own?

Thanks in advance!!
