Ubuntu 8.04 put to the user test

I like how this guy did his test of Ubuntu 8.04. Personally, I use Ubuntu for a small server at home. But would not think of changing over any user PCs yet.

I'd love Linux/Ubuntu developers to see this and take some of the points to heart.

SD Chip to Cassette adapter!!!

This thing is cool!
Will the cassette tape ever die?

This MP3 player is built into a standard cassette tape, letting you use it as either a uniquely old-school-style MP3 player, or with any car cassette or cassette player to play your music. You will have no problems listening to hours of your favorite songs via the built-in SD card slot, and you can easily change to different songs if you have multiple SD Cards. If you are into retro style looks but with a new technology upgrade, this is a MP3 player worth adding to your gear.

PS. This is on my wish-list!

No, not that one, the programming language used by the Caste Project. (Click here for the Monorail page.)

As opposed to Ruby on Rails, this is designed to work with .Net. It was developed before Linq was released.

Here's a brief summary:
MonoRail is a MVC Web Framework inspired by Action Pack.

MonoRail differs from the standard WebForms way of development as it enforces separation of concerns; controllers just handle application flow, models represent the data, and the view is just concerned about presentation logic. Consequently, you write less code and end up with a more maintainable application.

Although the project name is MonoRail, we do not have any affiliation with the Mono project. MonoRail runs on Microsoft .Net 1.1, 2.0 and Mono.

One more feather to learn and stick in my cap.

My Store!! Support the site

I thought I'd start an online store of media, books and music and such, that was safe of offensive lyrics. A lot of the music I have up there is instrumental/jazz/classical crossover with no lyrics. Please take a look.

Why don't more guy groups rock like this?

I was in the mood for something different, so I tuned into a Classical Crossover station on LaunchCast.

I found a couple of groups I really liked the sound of. It seemed at first the only groups I liked on the station were Girl groups. I don't want anybody to get the wrong idea. But then I finally found guy I really liked to listen to, Maksim, who's sound was pretty cool.

Here's the other two I liked:
Bond - Play a sample of Fuego. (Requires Real Media player.)
Imagine Classical Electric Dance done right.

Opera Girls - The didn't have as many I liked... not that I've heard them all. But they were pretty cool too.
