Really liked the show last night. I had to listen to the ogg since I did not wake up till after the show was over. I really wanted to get into the irc discussion. oh well.. Missed the "Make:" Live show also.
Super Thanx to Rich for all the work he has done on the Pogoplug. The community needs more people like him.
Both the Nslu2 and the Pogoplug are awesome, but do not forget about the Chumby also.
Yes, Firefly works with Rhythmbox. I run mt-daapd aka firefly on my p2 server. It is awesome. The project has also been forked, With the appropriate codecs installed, it will play the most popular formats. Xbmc works with it too. Use to run firefly on the nslu2 using Debian also.
To the person known as BillyCrook, I hoped what he said was said in jest. Everything has value even though you may think it does not. It is not what you use, it is how you use it. I still use p1's for various projects. Hope to have them working on earth batteries soon, so the argument for power costs is null. Upgrading my old p2 to U10.04. I hope it survives the reboot. (it's backed up).
As for micro-controllers, the stamp, arduino, and the rest are awesome. The parallax propeller leaves the arduino in the dust and it is coming out in a new format. The dip version is history. The new Ti 430 microcontroller also looks neat. You can get one on a board for under five dollars.
Being Italian (Sicilian), I love pizza. homemade pizza is the best. The nickname for deep dish pizza escapes me for the moment. Actually I prefer Foccacia which is a bit thicker bread wise than real pizza. Some of that so-called pizza with the thin crust is called ragbread where my ancestors came from. Will eat it if I have too, but usually avoid it. My first job was in a real pizzaria. I will always treasure that job.
Lastly thanks to all the people who have donated their precious time to make broadcasts for HPR.
Note: If you are into electronicshttp://www.instructables.com
is having a micro-controller project contest.
There is also a 555/556 (timer) project contest at http://www.555contest.com/
