I guess the "idea" behind Youtube can actually work in getting some of your movies/stuff better known on line, like Ronald Jenkees , who seems to be pretty good at the keyboard 🙂

Digital Audio Access Protocol

Installed Firefly Media Server on my home fileserver for fun (unfortunately not for profit 😉 ), and installed iTunes on my desktop. Never used it, but hey, it supports DAAP and that’s the big deal, right? 🙂 I have 22K+ songs in my iTunes player now, advertised via mDns multicast "modern" stuff. Yay!

Tried to use it in Amarok on my laptop as well, but no dice. If I add the machine manually, I can browse the files via DAAP, but the actual discovery doesn’t seem to work. I installed the avahi daemon which takes care of mDNS discovery, but it still doesn’t want to find it.. 🙁 Any tips?

Pandora.com

A few weeks ago I discovered pandora.com, a site like last.fm which is probably somewhat more well-known.

You enter an artist or a song, and based upon that the site creates a radio station with similarly sounding music. They have some bizarre but at the same time cool licensing going on which doesn’t allow you to listen to the exact song you want, can’t skip back in the list, and only skip ahead x times per hour, but I’ve created a few stations (Tiga, 2 Many DJ’s, Tiesto and Vitalic), they have a pretty varying bunch of tunes… Songs you don’t like you can vote down and they probably won’t be played again. Songs you like can be voted up and will return. Been using it at work for background music for quite a while now.

Oh, by the way.. you have to live in US to be allowed to use it. Hey Beverly Hills (*cough* 90210), here I come 😉
