SourceForge and Freshmeat are both great web sites for finding obscure open source software packages.
Both are very old and authoritative web sites; Freshmeat was started in March of 1998 and SourceForge came along in August of 1999.
SourceForge has a larger database of projects to search, which is a major advantage. SourceForge also has a better search feature, in that you can filter your search results by meta data fields such as Development Status, License, and Programming Language.
Unfortunately, once you find the list of projects which meet your criteria, SourceForge falls down. SourceForge presents very little data about each individial development project and the current SourceForge design makes it very difficult to find the real homepage of the development project. SourceForge is attempting to trap visitors within SourceForge’s limited environment. This makes SourceForge almost useless.
Freshmeat doesn’t have a search feature with the sophistication of the one you will find at SourceForge, but when you find an open source project at Freshmeat, it gives you all the data you need — including the real homepage of the project — with a far superior user interface.
So what am I stuck with? I go to Freshmeat and search for projects. If I find too many or too few results, I go to SourceForge and repeat the search. But then I take those search results back to Freshmeat to find useful project descriptions.
Freshmeat, please improve your search feature; SourceForge, please stop trying to trap visitors within your horrible new user interface."

All you need is Plastilina Mosh
Escrito lun 1 jun 2009 7:30PM EDT por Diego Lopez en El Capitán is in da house
Después de cinco años de espera y un largo proceso de separación de su antigua disquera EMI Music, Jonás y Rosso lanzan su cuarto disco inédito titulado “All you need is Mosh”.
De manera valiente y lanzándose a la aventura de manera independiente, Plastilina Mosh busca recuperar el terreno perdido en estos años de cuasi ausencia musical y digo 'cuasi' porque lanzaron un disco recopilatorio con sus grandes éxitos, el cual incluía sólo dos temas inéditos que pasaron sin pena ni gloria por la falta de apoyo a la banda.
Aunque en sus inicios Plastilina Mosh experimentó con sonidos al estilo jazz, hip-hop o electrónico, en “All you need is Mosh” se permiten explotar mucho más su lado pop.
En entrevista con AP señalan “'Esa tendencia hacia el pop tiene dos respuestas: una técnica que responde al hecho de que encontramos bastantes cosas entretenidas en este género, sobre todo, en lo que se refiere al 'smart pop' o el electro rock; creo que hay propuestas poperas inteligentes y divertidas', declaró Jonás, vocalista del grupo.
Su más reciente sencillo Pervert Pop Song suena bastante relax y cool como para alegrarte la vida cuando vas en la combi o en el auto y el tráfico está completamente parado. Lo que me llama la atención es que esta rola cuenta con la participación de Ximena Sariñana, la cual no aparece en el video sino Gabriela, una chica regia que también se dedica a la música.
Al respecto, Plastilina aclara: “es como Mini Vanilli” pero, a diferencia de este personaje, Gabriela sí canta al igual que Ximena, sólo que estos chavos quisieron jugar con esa doble personalidad.
Otro dato curioso del nuevo disco de este dúo mexicano es la canción Danny Trejo, la cual surgió en homenaje al actor estadounidense de ascendencia mexicana quien filmó un falso tráiler titulado “Machete”, el cual pertenece a la película 'Planeta Terror' de Robert Rodríguez y que gracias a la buena acogida del público se convertirá en película.
Bien por Plastilina que se sale por la tangente y no se rinde. Un ejemplo más de que actualmente los músicos no necesitan sólo de una buena disquera para difundir su propuesta por el mundo.

It's a shame, but laptop batteries can lie to you about how much juice they have, or can really hold. The New York Times explains in a Q & A (look halfway down the page) the most straight-forward means of getting the real truth. Turn off all your interrupting apps, like screensavers and the like, put your computer to sleep, and plug it in until you know it's good and charged. Then turn it back on, make sure your power settings are such that the system won't try to sleep or hibernate, then run your computer all the way down on battery power. Charge it back up one more time, and you'll know whether you really need to start shopping at Laptop Battery Express, Laptops for Less, or check with your manufacturer to get a new lithium stick."

The map is showing updates fairly regularly, and it's nice to see the distinction between suspected and confirmed accounts. The map's creator, Niman, identifies as 'Biomedical Research from PIttsburg' on his/her Google profile, for whatever that's worth. Thanks Bob!"

I got a DVD in the mail, an animated film titled 'Sita Sings the Blues.' It was an version of the epic Indian tale of Ramayana set to the 1920's jazz vocals of Annette Hanshaw. Uh, huh. I carefully filed it with other movies I will watch when they introduce the 8-day week. Then I was told I must see it.
I began. I was enchanted. I was swept away. I was smiling from one end of the film to the other. It is astonishingly original. It brings together four entirely separate elements and combines them into a great whimsical chord. How did Paley's mind work?"

So you have your 2.0 iPhone and you can install thousands of apps from AppStore. What’s all this commotion about jailbreaking? Why would you need to jailbreak? What does it offer? In this post, I will cite some of the most compelling reasons to jailbreak your iPhone. I will continually update this post as changes occur.
Jailbreaking is not unlocking! It is risk free. Everything that works before jailbreaking continues to work after. Jailbreaking only adds features. Jailbreaking is risk free and cannot void your warranty. You can simply restore in iTunes at anytime to get back to a factory state. You are not alone, many people are doing it. Several hundred thousand people are jailbreaking! For understanding of jailbreak vs unlock read my terminology post."

Xbox 360 Premium - HDMI Cable / Digital Optical Adapter Hack: "Xbox 360 Premium - HDMI Cable / Digital Optical Adapter Hack
Don’t waste money on a Xbox 360 Premium HDMI cable!
If you’re like me, you ordered the xbox 360 Premium instead of the 360 Elite because you wanted to save money. However, if you want HDMI going to your TV and Digital Optical to your surround sound, Microsoft has engineered the Premium in a way that requires you to purchase their HDMI cable with audio adapter for $49.99.
Because the HDMI and componet A/V cable slots are so close to one another, and the componet A/V casing is so thick, you cannot have both plugged in at the same time.
= NOT FRIENDS
So the question remains, how can we stick it to the man and achieve HDMI video and Digital Optical audio without paying microsoft $50.
First, purchase a Hdmi Cable for less than $10.
Second, remove the plastic casing from the standard A/V cable. I did this by wedging a knife between the slit in the plastic casing and seperating the two sides. See the pictures below for the finished product:

If this hack helped you out and saved you a little money I would greatly appreciate a link from your blog, or any link for that matter, to any of the online retail websites I operate. If you can’t provide a link, leave me a kind comment :)"
