De Doeks uut Hasselt

dukesDe beste campagne om zuiniger te rijden van VROM; hetnieuwerijden.nl. Op de tv (maar ook op de radio) een geweldige paradie van de dukes ([dukes|willy over dukes]) op de enige plek waar de dukes in Nederland zeer waarschijnlijk bestaan; in de achterhoek (Hasselt).

De doeks hebben ook een foute oranje auto (Genral Lee) maar met een Nederlandse vlag in plaats van de zuiderlijke rebel. Geweldige campagne, indien je hem nog niet gezien hebt, bekijk de commercials hier.

En als toetje nog een leuke game ook. Way to go VROM, liever op de digitale highway dan de echte zoals het CDA wil.

Personal Video Recorder, PVR with Mythtv

Slashdot is runing a story about watching TV on your PC, rivaling embedded PVR's like Tivo. And once my system is up and running that is what I will make; the ultimate PVR with [mythtv] on top of Suse. And since I use standard hardware -which will be fixed in a couple of days- I will be able to "Build Your Own PVR" with byopvr. I use the 250 version of this one, difference is I wont be able to listen to the Radio (who cares) via cable and there is no hardware MPGE2 decoder, there is a hardware encoder though. However, most radio stations have a realaudio/msft stream as well.

Now I come to think of it, in the future, most TV stations will have a stream on the net as well, making this hardware obsolete (soooo 2004).

Suse and Freeswan ... and full ISO's.

My new system -which is still not operationel thanks to some hardware problems- named NewBorn will run Suse Linux. And just when I downloaded the boot.iso that is needed to do a netinstall, Suse made the full iso available. This is a good thing, thanks Novell!

In related news, Novell now supports the FreeSwan / OpenSwan VPN client/server project, also good news Novell. Now, NOVL we are waiting for an official statement regarding LTSP.
