For the german readers:
I personally always liked their podcasts. I am currently only listening to bitsundso because filmeundso hasn't been updated since january and gamesundso is dealing with games… and I don't play that many games anymore.
Bitsundso deals with Macs, the internet and everything else. I especially like the technical expertise with which topics are discussed in bitsundso and the professional sound quality, let's see if serienundo can live up to that standard.
p.s. this post was created using ecto (just bought it)
If you happen to have a 99,99% torrent download stuck in Transmission and you'd love to have a "recheck hash"; option, simply do this:
- pause the torrent download
- go to the terminal and "touch"; the file/directory (as in "touch mydownload.rar";)
- resume the download
- voilá, there's your hashcheck
Kinda gay… but whatever:
I'√Ç‚Ç¨√Ç‚Ñ¢m sure that I will always be
A lonely number like root three
The three is all that√É¬¢√Ç‚Ç¨√Ç‚Ñ¢s good and right,
Why must my three keep out of sight
Beneath the vicious square root sign,
I wish instead I were a nine
For nine could thwart this evil trick,
with just some quick arithmetic
I know I√É¬¢√Ç‚Ç¨√Ç‚Ñ¢ll never see the sun, as 1.7321
Such is my reality, a sad irrationality
When hark! What is this I see,
Another square root of a three
As quietly co-waltzing by,
Together now we multiply
To form a number we prefer,
Rejoicing as an integer
We break free from our mortal bonds
With the wave of magic wands
Our square root signs become unglued
Your love for me has been renewed

I know what you think: "Wow, Marc sure is one lean mean blog-switching machine!";.
And you're right :D Mephisto was a pretty decent blogging engine, but ever since 12-18 months ago, the development is a bit slagging. XML-RPC doesn't work in the current stable, inserting Images from the "Bucket"; doesn't work, the wiki is down and nobody seems to care/do anything, …
I also don't use disqus anymore. Disqus is pretty nice, but I want "email me when new stuff shows up"; + openID
To convert the posts and comments from Mephisto, I used the python script that can be found over here
I can visit it using the latest beta firmware but I don't have any space left! AAAAAAAAARGHHHHHH!
So far I found these free apps kinda useful:
Cube Runner (kinda like pitfall in 3d)
Mobile News Network ("Local News"; part not working for Germany, but a decent news app)
Remote (Remote Control iTunes from your iPhone!)
ShoZu ‚Äì Connect. Share. Blog. (I will use it to upload pics to picasa)
Twitterrific (Twitter Client… kinda liked twinkle better though)
VoiceNotes (liked the "original"; VoiceVotes by Erika Sadun better)
The AOL Radio App
the ebay app
the paypal app
google mobile app
and some others is only available in the US Store… luckily I do have an US Store Account :D. AOL Radio works, Ebay crashes, paypal has a "System Error";, google mobile is utter crap (it basically just opens safari). The crashes could be my beta8 FW though
Ah well… only 8 euros…
Ok, I have to admint, the "bitches"; part was unnecessary… but I think it makes the title sound 2000 times cooler.
What is shazam you ask? It's an iPhone application that records 10 seconds of music playing and tells you which song it is.
Btw, you can make a screenshot on your iphone by keeping your menu button pressed and then taping the "locking"; button. Your screen will blink and you will find the screenshot in your "Camera Roll";

Back from the University of Hildesheim.
Here are some pictures, I decided not to take pictures of Hildesheim because of the possible confusion with Ankara.
