Upgrading The X220

Taken last night.
The X220 got a new palm rest, the little that lappie that delivers gets better and better!
Next step, changing the hinges, compared to changing the palm rest, that would be a major PITA/ task.

Chromium's Cache on tmpfs

As part of the "Chrome migration", in order to use the newly acquired Chromecast, installed Chromium on my "new"Dell XPS.
Since the lappie uses a SSD, I've moved Chromium's cache to the system's tmpfs file system, actually the /tmp directory, which I have already set it up right from the get go.

The thing is pretty straight forward, since the lappie already has a working tmpfs, of course...
Matter of fact, all it takes is to launch the browser with a flag, which I added the option to the launch icon/ script on XFCE, the whole command looks like this:

chromium-browser --disk-cache-dir=/tmp/cache %U

No, It Wasn't The DRM Route...

In the end it turned out to be only one of those IP restricted things...
Here in Argentina, things on Spotify, the web access, are the same as usual.
All the DRM thing, as well as the new interface tha I saw during the vacations turned out to be just a geo-location thing...
And of course. on this plain old Spotify interface, Last.FM scrobbles work A Ok.
