Stumbled across a Japanese Harley fan site through Flickr : http://www.virginharley.com. When I was in Japan last year I noticed quite a few Harley’s and really liked their attitude… well I must admit the “Japanese way of life” gets me.
Steel Thunder Custom Cycles sell some really nifty slip-on mufflers for Harley’s that lets you choose when you make noise with your bike… I hope I won’t regret my Rinehart slip-on mufflers !

This rating is only use under two circumstances:
Either I don’t like the track, and I will delete it from my library (for obvious reasons, I only end up with this when I am rating from my iPod), or I consider it to be “filler.” A filler track is when an artists has a track of random sounds, or sometimes spoken words, that can not be considered a song by its own merit, but an album would be incomplete without it. An example of artists who do this are Nine Inch Nails, and Tool.
This is a rating that I use for a track that I am not particularly fond of, by an artist that I like well enough that I wouldn’t want an incomplete album, such as in the above example.
This is a neutral rating. When I am judging a track for ratings purposes, I start every track as three stars mentally. Then, as I listen, I will either go up, or down from there. These are tracks that I would not mind listening to, if they were to appear in a playlist that I have set to randomly generate.
One notch above three stars, four stars is approaching “favorite” status. This is a song that I may be likely to choose to play, rather than just listen to it at random.
These are my favorites. In a playlist of all five star songs, there are no songs that I would get tired of hearing, with the playlist on repeat.
Ca y est depuis le 10 mai on peut mettre une plaque minéralogique blanche à l’arrière des véhicules en France. Ce n’est pas trop tôt vu la laideur de la plaque jaune qui jure avec un grand nombre de couleurs au contraire du blanc.
Just put my Suunto X9i in service and it works like a charm. Mapping goodies to follow.
Annoucement of EMI releasing fully DRM-free albums on Apple’s iTunes Music Store is a signal that the majors are finally listening to consumers. Choosing between locked-up CDs that refused to play on old hardware (like in a car…) and crippled low-fi DRMed tracks from iTunes was an excellent excuse for finding other ways… Now we have a legal way of getting decent quality tracks (as in “at least as good as CD”) that we won’t regret purchasing shall we choose to change computers or music-player.
I will soon be moving this website to a dedicated server (a Dedibox) and so I am checking that everything is still working before moving my files and databases.
Integrated Windows authentication in Flock is possible ! Firefox too, of course.Type about:config in the address bar and find the preference named network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris and set the value to a comma separated list of servers that use NTLM authentication. This can be a server name without the default domain, a complete server name with domain or just a domain for all servers in that domain. The important thing is it must match whatever you use in the address bar.
