I have often wanted to toy around with setting up a home server of sorts. While I have always had something in the last 2-3 years, I wouldn’t exactly have called it a server. I was running a DLNA program on my NSLU2 and it worked, but I just didn’t have a good feeling for it to use it beyond the oh that’s cool stage. Now with Ampache, I think I have found something I will use and maybe even my family.
The interface is wrote in PHP, primarily and it’s awesome. You basically only need a web browser and a flash plugin to play music. It also supports Icecast style streaming so you should also be able to use your favorite desktop player as well.
I would write more, but I would rather talk about it in depth on TLLTS. So, just go check out Ampache and stay tuned to The Linux Link Tech Show for more.
I have a few reviews in the queue for on geardiary.com and on the tech show.
The first one I will be working on is the Sansa Fuze+ review. Will the new version hold up to the old Fuze? Stay tuned to the Linux Link Tech Show and geardiary.com to find out.
The second is the ZaReason Terra HD Netbook. In fact, I am typing this post on it now. So far, I like it!
This post comes from a post that Linc had shared via Facebook on someone’s top ten essential admin tools for Linux. Linc and I as well do NOT totally agree with this writer. Some of the things he suggest like Dropbox aren’t even for running on servers. Sure you CAN run it on a server, but drop box is NOT a backup solution.

Friends of the penguin are gathering again. This time in Spartanburg, SC and I will be heading south to attend!
This is only the second year of the Southeast Linuxfest. Last year, their first year, they only planned for about 100 people to show up. Over 400 people showed up which is simply amazing to me. Dave Yates, my friend and producer of the Lottalinuxlinks.com Linux User oggcast has done a phenomenal job and i am so looking forward to this show.
What I do want from the few people who read this blog is where in Spartansburg can I get some Carolina BBQ! 😀
I want to thank the Tech Show for another awesome year. 5 years. Wow. To think….I JUST got my old Powerbook back then and I do not have it anymore. My son was only 4. I was a budding sysadmin. Linc and Dann moved. It’s incredible to me the amount of content they have created and ha ave provided over the years. Thank you to Linc, Dann, Allan and Pat. We’ll see you at OLF!….
Oh…..DANNN FAAAARTING! 😀
Say it isn’t so! After LUGRadio LIVE in the UK, the blokes at LUGRadio are hanging up thier microphones for good. For details, listen to the latest LUGRadio.
I discovered Drivel today. It makes it super easy to make blog posts when the bandwidth is at a premium.
How did I find it?? I just was browsing through synaptic and found it. Pretty sweet.
