I need someone to explain this to me.

Hackaday links

Did you see my links yesterday? I screwed up the timestamp and sent the post back in time. Then my Gentoo install ran out of disk space and decided to eat itself. Here’s what you can delete to make room on your Gentoo install. Now I’m doing a long needed “emerge -vuDN world”. I’ll let you know when that finishes next week.

[bEN Newham] decided our rackmounted stereo was too complex. He made his own version. Yes, that is a jar of pesto being used as a standoff.

We’ve been nominated for a “Best of the Blogs” award. In the niche category “Best Weblog”. You can’t vote yet so who cares?

I really like the dock that [Abe] made for his Nano. It was inspired by [Kevin]‘s.

There have been a lot of “crammed a motherboard into an NES” projects, but this one bothered to integrate the original switches and connectors. [jon]

    I like the iPod nano dock/frame – Apple should consider selling those – “music is art” or some stupid slogan like that.

    Has anybody crammed a mac mini into an NES case yet? That would be bad ass. You might even fit a full sized HD in there. Well… maybe.
    I’d take a crack at it, but I’m waiting until they go intel.

    using that iTunes Video PHP script, I’ve figured out how to steal album art from iTunes.. too bad it’s low resolution. Here’s an example album cover, maybe someone can help out.

    I figured it out! the script should work, but I don’t know if it works on all albums.

    The mac mini wireless one was okay I guess, but I would have liked to know how much the unit costed him. On the mini, you should order the stock memory and then by more and install it yourself.

  10. Shoot, I’ve got lots of things to say today:
    1) If I had an iPod nano and iTunes I’d totally be trying those right now. That dock is nice! Plus, yaay videos. Gorillaz is a cool band.
    2) That pesto thing? Ghettotastic, but kinda gross. C’mon, they could’ve at least washed out the pesto jar. Ick!
    3) I use Ubuntu personally because I’m too much of a n00b to use much of anything else. :D
