I’ve found two great internet radio stations recently, thanks to pointers from two different blogs.
First up is Egg Radio, which is “Streaming Alternative Classic Modern Rock on the Internet 24 hours a day.” And they’re doing a damned good job of it. I listened for a couple of hours the first night I found the link (via Wil Wheaton dot Net), and did not hear one song I didn’t like. Ditto on the times I’ve returned since.
I found the second tonight via Metafilter: Radio DavidByrne. This is a very eclectic mix of music – about what one would expect from Byrne. It’s also a lot like a mix that I would build myself. The last three tracks were from Outkast, Paul Simon and Pietra Montecorvino. And it worked. very well.
This seeming innocuous article on wait and sleep contains the best crontab hint I’ve ever seen. It’s tiny, just a small portion of the article, but it’s amazing. You’ll have to scroll down on the page to find it; look for the big yellow box.
This might also be one of the coolest use of comments I’ve seen, too.
