I finally finished my second real electronic project: The Pocket Theramin. I made a few changes/improvements to the design found here, and I really like my result. The basic circuit is exactly the same, but I added an LED and a toggle switch so I can keep it together as one unit all the time.
Also, I discovered that MAKE: Electronics is an awesome book. I highly recommend purchasing yourself a copy.

I was having a bunch of trouble today importing my old MySQL amarok database into the new nightly version of amarok I installed. The Amarok Wiki had a great section on how to convert a MySQL Amarok collection into an SQLlite one. This was the key to importing my old 1.4 collection into the new 2.2 nightly version of Amarok.
Sometimes, I want to hear classical music, but it helps if I can relate to the music being played and really get into it (see: John Williams). Walt Ribeiro recently has awoken me to some awesome arrangements like Pork and Beans and The RickRoll Song that he has produced. You should buy them here if you like them, as I did. Here are some nice samples:
Actually, truth be told, I bought Pork and Beans, and Walt was cool enough to notice and send me Never Gonna Give You Up for free! Please spend money on him!
