It seems that I'm always coming across some cool little thing that makes running Linux full-time a joy. This time it is XMMS-KDE, an applet that lets you control the XMMS media player (think Winamp) via the KDE panel. It can even store your MP3s in a database that you can search by title, artist, album, or genre. Very cool and highly recommended.

As an aside, their website is pretty cool with some neat uses of cascading style sheets (CSS) that look quite nice in Mozilla.

Wings Win!

The puck was officially dropped on another Detroit Red Wings season tonight. The Captain himself, Steve Yzerman, scored with 1.7 seconds left to give the Winged Wheelers a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings. Man, I love hockey. I'm glad it's back. Hopefully the players and owners can get a new CBA hammered out before this one ends at the end of the season.

EMusic Becomes Worthless

EMusic announced that it is changing its subscription system after being bought out. Instead of unlimited downloads for $14.99/mo ($9.99/mo if you signed up for a year), it will now be $9.99/mo for 25 downloads, or about three albums. Mind you, this is without having many new or popular artists available. Gah, I'm glad I subscribed when I did. Mark this down: EMusic will go completely under within a year. Thanks Slashdot.
