Last.fm + Ubuntu

Filed under
HowTos

When I’m coding I MUST listen to music. It helps me tune out and concentrate.

I’ve been messing around with Pandora and have heard about Last.fm. Both are services where you provide an artist or type of music and the service will stream similar music to you. You can usually vote ‘yes’ or ‘no’ for each song played and over time the service ‘learns’ about your musical tastes and will generate a playlist for you.

Tonight I was messing around on Last.fm and noticed they had a client download and was amazed to see they had a Linux version!

Review: Scientific Linux 7.0 GNOME

It has been a while since I have done a review (almost 3 months, in fact). It has been significantly longer since I have looked at Scientific Linux (over 3 years, in fact). Given that, I figured it might be worthwhile to make this review about Scientific Linux 7.0. I'm just glad that I did it before the time elapsed for something else to come up (around 3 minutes, in fact — OK, I just made that one up to match the other statements). Read more
