Jesus-holy-mom-of-a-goat it is scorching hot over here right now... Check out my Forecastfox...

Needless to say mich and I are sweating like newborn baboons right now...


Squeezebox arrived

My squeezebox just arrived a couple of hours ago - oh boy, this is a super nice little gadget..

I installed audio/slimserver from the ports collection, and turned the squeezebox on.. I took me about 30 seconds to get the little sucker connected to the network, and recognized by the slimserver (running off my laptop) - everything works like a beaut.. Now I'm discovering all the cool functions and features..

I also installed the plugin that soft of works.. seems the squeezebox reboots every time I initialize a stream.. I looked briefly on the slim devices forum, and it seems that I not the only one experiencing this problem.. hmm...
Haven't tried out the scrobbler plugin yet, but it is installed - so it should work.

I've just finished setting up the squeezenetwork account, and I'm just now discovering pandora - holy crap - this thing just ROCKS !

Looking forward to listening to Danish broadcast streams tonight on my stereo... Also, I will have to connect the squeezebox to my WLAN at home.. That should be interesting..

Enough for now, I will play some more..

PS. UPS Express rocks - I put in my order Monday afternoon, and the package arrived at 11am today !

Squeezebox - en route !

Weeee.. after Stig's excellent post about his squeezebox - I got kinda hooked on the idea, so I just ordered one. I got the one with both Ethernet and wifi connectivity.. It's actually quite affordable, something like $340 (with shipping) - I'll probably have to pay local tax on it, but even then it's still cheaper to buy it directly from Slim Devices than a France-based webshop - where it would be well over $450 (what the hell is wrong with those guys... don't buy your shit from !)

So what can it do ?
Well.. pretty much anything - stream a shitload of online radio stations - I will finally be able to listen to danish broadcasts from my stereo.. also, I will be able to stream my own music. In addition, squeezebox can function as a wifi bridge for my WLAN - pretty neat !

Go read the Slim Devices : Squeezebox : Overview here !

No shit, Sherlock

Snippet from Danish newspaper Politiken:
"Foreign Ministry: Nobody should travel to Lebanon"

Geeee, you think ?

Udenrigsministeriet: Ingen bør rejse til Libanon

Forholdene i Libanon er nu alvorlige, at Udenrigsministeriet fraråder alle at rejse til landet.

Shit is hitting the fan

It is not looking good in the middle-east...

Israel calls Hizbollah capture of soldiers act of war

MARJAYOUN, Lebanon (Reuters) - Hizbollah guerrillas captured two Israeli soldiers and killed up to seven Israelis in violence on either side of the Lebanese border on Wednesday, further inflaming Middle East tensions.

Racism & Soccer

Just got this postcard the other day.. and in light of Materazzi's poor behavior during the Italy vs. France worldcup final, I thought it would be worth posting.

It says: "Do not let racism invade the stadiums"

- nuff' said !
