As you may’ve guessed from some previous blog posts, I have been expirementing with Raspberry Pi as media player.

Xbian vs. Raspbmc

I’ve recently tested Xbian and Raspbmc. Xbian seems to be based of raspbmc, with a few changes, for example a quite sleek setup plugin.

Backup – for fun and profit.

rsnapshot er et artig verktøy for å ta backup. Det er basert på rsync, men i tillegg kan det lage revisjoner.
