Hush Technologies specializes in fanless PC designs for noise conscious applications like living room PVRs. Their latest effort looks pretty sweet. Unfortunately, at about $2500, I’ll be sticking to my plan of building my own open source based PVR on an old Dell box using MythTV.
Here are some awesome (both in terms of beauty and expense) prints of Pink Floyd artwork at RockOptic (like the name!)
On their site they also have some background stuff on the artist who does Pink Floyd’s memorable album covers, Storm Thorgerson. A new random factoid for me was he also did the Peter Gabriel’s melty face album cover. The effect was done by smooshing a polaroid photo as it was developing. Way cool!
Stumbled on the Festerhead online radio station this morning.
