if you are not too far down the road with Tiis Verkoyen's class, I can send you an example using Abraham's oAuth library which will show you how to do this. I am guessing that you are looking at examples showing you a user coming, authenticating, and then invoking actions on the users behalf. However, what you want to do is to create an app, get that app's tokens, and do an action server side.
