Linux music players

For reasons that are far too un-important to go into here my home computer runs openSUSE 10.2 and my work laptop running Suse Linux enterprise desktop. I've tried to keep my work laptop pretty much supportable and also as Novell designed it. So on my home computer I use Amarok and for the one or two times I've played music on the laptop, I used Banshee.

Ok today I've been using the laptop to actually listen to music and actually do stuff with it. So got really frustrated with Banshee and finally installed Amarok, which is like so so much better.

Yep I understand Novell needs to push all mono type stuff which is cool. But Banshee plays songs really well whereas Amarok does that, and so much more.

Oh in case you're wondering both work fine with my 80GB iPod. To be honest Amarok is probably better than iTunes as well.

Vagina Monologues

Went to see the Vagina monologues on Friday night. It was playing a 2 night run in Bermuda. It was really good, although I seem to have a different sense of humour then a lot of the people in the crowd. Some pieces were really funny. The moaning one probably being the funniest. However people were laughing at some really odd parts. The one called the Flood and the birth one springs to mind.

Apparently the Thursday night crowd was hugely different.

In other news I've been working lots, and now know all I want to know about migrating users from NT4 domains/Exchange 5.5 to W2k3 AD and Exchange 2003.

A new friend called Helen (producer of above mentioned Vagina Monologues) introduced me to a band called The Weakerthans. As usual I had already been given a track by them by Dan. But hadn't really listening to it properly. Anyway after listening to it and some others that Helen gave me, they're really good.

If you have a dog that you're having trouble with you really need to watch the Dog Whisperer (really crap name for a good show), and normally reality shows I hate with a passion.
