What would you do when you have one Apple Cinema 30″ display? Well. Get another one and twiddle it to a G5 or a PC…This guy got two of them (the little display next to them is a 20″ Eizo!)… and he really really means it:
“On my experiments about switching from Windows to OS X with my main work machine I came across the Apple 30″ Cinema Display. Fully switching to OS X did not work out for me, not so much for Software reasons (I love Aqua) but for the fact that the Apple Dual G5 workstation is simply too loud! Even though it has water cooling it still has a lot of fans and especially the graphics card makes a lot of noise. My PC workstation from Deltatronic has no fan and is not only quiet but unhearable – so the G5 was just too much. “
*rawr* It seems that the opportunity is near to hear and see Le Tigre live the next days: Wednesday to be precise. There are only some tickets left at the box office. So I’ll drive to Berlin and see if I can get in…would be great…
Today the telematic lectures started – and I took the opportunity to make two panoramic views of the biggest lecture hall my university has to offer: the Audimax.
Congratulations to the guys from Dortmund. With a final score of 4:2 the Microsoft Hellhounds once again won the Robocup.

Tonight Gerrit van Aaken introduced his Loudblog. An easy to use podcasting software which is based on PHP and MySQL. Gerrit started Loudblog as his diploma project and worked on it a few months now. So you probably want to give it a try if you’re searching for a audioblogging/podcasting solution.
You can view and even more important hear a the Loudblog Developer Podcasts here. As
“Loudblog ist ein System, mit dem man auf einfache Weise Audioweblogs und Podcasts veröffentlichen kann. Und zwar auf dem eigenen PHP/MySQL-Server. Loudblog will nicht mit anderen Weblogsystemen wie Textpattern oder gar MovableType konkurrieren. Es soll einfacher gehalten werden und speziell auf das Verwalten und Verbreiten von Audioinhalten ausgerichtet sein.”
“Loudblog is a sleek and easy-to-use Content Management System (CMS) for publishing audio content on the web. It automatically generates a skinnable website and an RSS-Feed for Podcasting. Just upload your audio files, add some notes and links, and you’re done!”

Andreas came up with this little gadget:
Isn’t this a beauty? I always did know that the japanese are great robot-contructors… but this exceeded my expectations by far.
