ASF streaming audio on the macs
07:41 PM on Friday 09 November 2007

Previously I tried Windows Media Player for this, but it never worked. Trust Microsoft to produce a piece of software that does not even work with their own standards. This has to be a conspiracy for people to get upset over their macs. Anyway, the way to do this is to use VLC , an open source med ...

My wife got me a spanking new rev b macbook pro. So happy. So the dell laptop which I got in early 2006 as a temporary solution has been sold off. Same goes for the powermac since I do not really use it much and the new macbook pro could basically do everything that it did. Amazing machine, so happy ...

Almost a year since I last updated this and in the process, I have moved house and managed to wire the whole place with LAN points. Well the setup has changed yet again. The Athlon64 machine has been converted to a full-time linux machine and it is now the 24/7 server. I moved the ANTEC power supply ...

On 10 Match 2006 at 1305, baby Esther was born. Measuring 50cm and weighing in at 3.4kg, she is a chubby one :-) Her name is a play on Ernest's name and mine. Ernest's name is almost the same as mine except for a single insertion and one mismatch while Esther's name is a perfect subsequence match wi ...

12:00 PM on Friday 11 November 2005

Got myself a ATEN 4 port USB KVM so instead of moving between machines, I hooked them all up together. Really convenient, access to 3 platforms from a single location. So far so good, the only problem is the windows platform which seems to have erratic mouose movements in games. No too sure what is ...

This is a wallpaper that I created sometime back. I think it was on Christmas Day 2003. This was created using a mix of photoshop and 3D max. An abstract design which looks pretty cool (at least to me). This one was actually used for a competition where I got a $200 cash prize. Sorry about the funny ...

The image below shows a schematic diagram of my setup at home. Sorry about the ugly pic, will update it if I got time. My ISP is Starhub which provides me with an internet connection via cable. The cable modem is connected to a broadband router which connects to all the machines via Ethernet. My mai ...
