My snowboard roots are in hard boots. I have a pair of Raichle 324 which have spent the last 6(?!) seasons living in my friend’s attic in France. Finally got them back last year, but the rubber pads / semelles had disintegrated. Really upset, then I found bomber online…
And if you wondered about what happened to Raichle they became Deeluxe: http://www.alpinecarving.com/boot_models.html

I just got splashtop for iPad… most essential app ever. I can now watch videos from my desktop PC beamed via the iPad to the AppleTV. I won’t go into why I do that, suffice to say you will know if you live abroad. Other essential app so far is airplayer.
I noticed that I lost my linkstation in the itunbes shared section.
Having just opened up the telnet access (see my earlier post), I decided to analyze a bit…
ps -edf|grep daapd
threw up nothing… it should have shown the itunes server running. Similar thing for twonky.
I therefore added 2 lines into /etc/init.d/rcS (be careful when you do this… this is the same level of danger as changing your registry on windows or using msconfig on windows) and I added in 2 lines to start “itunes.sh start” and twonky.sh… I copied the telnet line just above so that it pipes the log to /dev/null.
Now I can see my linkstation in itunes again (and my twonky server).
BTW: twonky installs onto port 9001 on linkstation – not the 9000 default (that is pcast), nor the 9010 mentionned in the twonky setup file.
Online gaming guys are setting up a similar service to access windows 7 in the cloud on iPad
I had to update my slug last week, so saved all the links:
ERROR: “http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/nslu2/native/stable/Packages.gz” “wget: server returned error: HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found”
Basically manually edit config files and change the path.

I’ve tried a few media servers now: twonkymedia, tversity, squeezebox. I’m beginning to think that twonkymedia is the best of those. Synology and QNAP think the same, as that is the server they decided to use.
Best UPNP / DLNA player I’ve found so far on the iPad is airplayer. It plays all formats – including iTunes DRM files.
Hhhmmm interesting. I just found out that my Linksys WTY610n router has a media server built in. The media server is Twonky media. Unfortunately there are 2 disadvantages to this setup according to some posts:
1. version of twonkymedia is 4.4… and as you don’t have access to the normal config screens (it’s all configured automatically behind the linksys interface) and the integration is pretty tightly coupled, I wouldn’t even want to start updating it.
2. USB port is apparently 1.1… if you remember, this was even slower than USB2.0…
Still nice to know…
