No more scrobbling for you!

It finally went kaput this morning... It just keeps adding the played songs to the queue.
During the last couple of days I was having problems scrobbling songs from VLC as well.
Too bad, I love gathering statistics on the way I listen to music.

The current GNOME 3 extensions

Finally, after 20 days of Gnome 3 on Stilgar I finally caved in and installed a couple of Extensions...
For the moment, those will do.

Breaking Weekend

Last night finished Breaking Bad's first season, a TV series that went  completely below the radar for me.

I crossed an episode or two while channel surfing, but never gave any attention to it.

Depressing and scary, but mighty good.

Another DivisiĆ³n on Miami

Rough week, lots of work, and a small problem in my left eye... But that didn't stop me from finishing Miami Vice's Third Season.

It was, all and all, a bit better than the second one.
The worst episode, by far, was "Viking Bikers From Hell".

DivisiĆ³n Miami

Yesterday finished with Miami Vice's second season...

OMG man... I can't believe it was considered so awesome when I was a kid... Used to watch it glued to the TV back then.

To say that the whole thing looks artificial, well, it is maybe a starting point. The difference with another cop TV show, like for instance, The Wire it nearly hurts.

Unseasonably cool

And I couldn't be any happier.
Winter, contrary to what I thought, is taken quite a while to die.

Scrobbling to from VLC

This seem to be easy enough, but nevertheless I had to enable an extra setting (the one on the first screenshot) in order to get the whole thing up & running for good.

VLC > Tools > Preferences

And then set that to "Show settings" > "All"
Interface > Control Interfaces > and enable "Submission of played songs to"

Then goto Audioscrobbler and complete yout login info for

You are done. It scrobbles songs, but only after they have been played in their entirety, there is no "Currently Listening".

The WiFi

Today (a tranplanted holiday around here) got to -at last- see the end of The Wire...
It took me about 3 months or so, but I finally saw the whole thing.
Loved it since the first episode, IMOH, the best seasons were the second, the fourth and the last one (contrary to all of my friend's recommendations, I tought it was a really good one).

Stilgar got its GNOME Shell Remix

Installed GNOME Shell Remix once again.
This time on my beloved Stilgar, haven't nuked the Scientific Linux install, but made the GNOME 3 install on Sojourner's HDD, a 500 GB that it is a bit beat but seems to be holding up Ok.
This HDD was originally from an old laptop that I don't have any more, the thin and somewhat fragile Dell XPS M1330; the HDD has a couple of bad sectors, so I'll keep and eye on it, and make plenty of backups.
As far as the GNOME Shell Remix goes, things seem to be pretty nice so far, this lappie only has 3 GB of RAM -and I've used modern distros on it-, so the system its a 32 bits, and overall things are obviously slower than on Usul and its 8 GB of RAM, but can be used as a day in day out box no problem.
The T60p huge screen (1600x1200) its the most amazing thing I've ever seeing.

Currently reading

Actually, more like "trying to be currently reading"...
Between work, all the Linux crap and a couple of TV series I'm watching, I can hardly read it at all...
This one its in Spanish, got it from the local library.

The last post I made regarding what a hell I was reading was more than half a year ago... After the Hastings one, I did read one, in Spanish, from Paul Aster.
It was a disappointment, more of the same, nothing new I'm afraid, sadly he keeps repeating and repeating himself... Back when I was a young man in college it was one of my heroes.
Anyways, back to history and military books for me.

The lure of GNOME 3

Been using GNOME 3 almost exclusively for the last month or so (on Usul).
It is getting almost addictive, I look at my other lappies running Scientific Linux with plain GNOME 2 and they look so antique, so old...
Things are not totally kosher with GNOME 3, not even on Usul with 8 GB RAM, but, damn, GNOME 2 looks like CDE.
