The best Raspberry Pi 'hifi' distribution.
I was on volumio for ages but they killed proper MPD integration. This lets you use the web front end, local hdmi, or an mpd client to play your music.
Pair it with a DAC sound card and you get a very nice package.

Love this. Simple website statistics with no personal data tracked or stored.
'NULL' vanity plate backfires, lands the owner with $12k of tickets.
I wouldn't say this backfired. Now he can pick up loads of tickets and they won't know which ones are real.

On July 30th 1914, Tryggve Gran became the first person to fly across the North Sea. Gran left from Cruden Bay, in north-east Scotland, and landed, just over 4 hours later, at Jæren, near Stavanger, Norway.
The photo shows Gran (flat cap, nearest the propeller, I believe) and his plane at Cruden Bay.
Gran wasn't just a pioneering aviator, he had previously been a member of the Capt. Scott's ill-fated expedition to Antarctica.

Brilliant project that tidies up public domain ebooks.
Gutenberg and Internet Archive are wonderful resources, but the texts are poorly formatted for actual use, especially on ereaders.
This is a volunteer driven initiative to bring these texts up to date with modern standards and make them look as good as possible on the page.
