gone wireless

speaking of mobile devices… I have now finally sorted out a wireless network for the home (chez mule). Came to a grand total of €190 for a ADSL router/modem 2xwireless PC cards 1xlaptop card. Got them from a new PC shop that opened up in the town center called MYCOM, helpful staff who know their stuff and pretty nice prices to boot!
So no more wire trailing all over the house WOOO HOO!!
BTW (thanks to jon2082 for the helpdesk stylee support)

MOBLOG

Definition: This is the short form of the phrase ‘mobile blog’ or ‘mobile blogging.’ Mobile blogging is the practice of blogging using mobile devices such as PDAs (personal digital assistants), cell phones, camera phones, telephones, and email. Blogs that are updated using these devices are called ‘moblogs.’
filled with groove?
OK, so i finally got round to bringing my moblog scripts ‘in house’ and running them myself. Mfop2, flickr etc are all probably good, but I want to know where my images are and whts being done to them… at least I still ‘own them’.
At present moveabletype is a real pain in the ass for getting emails and photos to a new post… so I gave up and went with easymoblog for ease of use. I had to hack the code a little to get things displayed as I wanted, and I expect to see more changes on the main page to kind of blend it in a little more with the main blog.
Anywho.. heres the *new* moblog and of course it’s got RSS included for all you Firefox heads out there.
stay tuned!

A Tribute to Tresor

The legendary Tresor Club opened its doors in Berlin’s Leipziger Strasse in March 1991, and troughout the years has gone on to make a reputation for itself as one of the world’s leading techno clubs. Rumours of the closure of Berlin’s famous Tresor Club have been circulating in the techno clubbing community on and off for the past few years.
Tresor has been closed down many times since 1991. The last closure was on 31 August 2003 when the Berliner Police Department did a large Razzia at Tresor. Over 400 customers were controlled and 16 party people were taken to the Police headquarters for drugs possession, as well as one more who was already wanted. The club was immediately closed and remained closed until the Monday 8 September But once again…Tresor continued strong after this short period of closure.
We all knew the end was coming on day or another and a few weeks ago the official news that Tresor held their last parties during April was announced. There is no word yet on a new location for Tresor, but we can’t let this moment pass without doing something back for the club, the sound, the label and all the people who understand to true Tresor feeling.
So, this weekend livesets.com will do a tribute to Tresor, starting Friday at 12:00 CET (GMT+1) and we will continue all weekend till Tresor closed its doors on Sunday. This broadcast will last for over 40 hours.

Tune in this weekend with Winamp or Windows Media Player
mrmule will be producing a Tresor mix in memory of a great era.. stay tuned to music.mrmule.com
