When the Xoom finally came to market, it turned out to be both pretty expensive and only available in the US. So I started looking at the alternatives. Here […]

  • Boxee running on AppleTV through a VPN to access BBC iPlayer

    Okay, I admit this is quite an intricate setup, but it works great and the different parts of it will work by themselves so hopefully this can be of use for others too. First a little background for the setup. I use a 1st gen (aluminium) AppleTV as a “TV” in the bedroom connected to a pair […]

  • Home Theater PC

    My first HTPC in 2003 was based around a VIA M10000 “Nehemiah” mini-itx motherboard and a Hauppauge WinTV PVR-350 tv tuner.

This turned out to […]

  • Linux the easy way

    After having run Windows 7 on my netbook (Dell Mini10), because there weren’t good Linux support for the GMA500 graphics, I wanted to try it again. I found myself without any CDR or DVDR’s, so I had to do the install with a USB drive, luckily this is made easy with LinuxLive USB Creator. Just […]

    soNick records

    It all started as a kind of a joke record label (*) back in high school around 1997 when I recorded a Legend Of Bob set @ Solrød Gymnasium and thought I should put a label name on the CDs. Later on I used the name when I put my own music online. The latest […]
