Rhythmbox 0.9.7 now includes the Cover Art plugin. Also checking out Audacious as a replacement for xmms and xmms2.
For once I can say been there done that! Haridwar/Rishikesh was the only place that I enjoyed being during my trip to the north early December. The white water rafting from Shivpuri to Rishikesh is so good that I did it twice.
Completed upgrading mediawiki from 1.4.x to 1.6.8 earlier today. One more long pending todo off the list.
http://shankerbalan.net/wiki/Main_Page is now back online. Also enabled the automagic URL rewriting so that the URLS look like http://mywiki.site.tld/wiki/Article_name instead of /wiki/index.php/Main_Page
My provider is still on php4. Does mediawiki > 1.6 work well with php4? I went with the legacy version because the documentation claims it needs php 5 or later.
