LibriVox – take 2

Some time ago I wrote about the LibriVox script in Amarok. It has been ported now and works like a charm.
For those who don’t know how the script came to be: Hanno Svoboda reported a bug on saying that he would like to have LibriVox integrated in Amarok. We asked if there is a nice API we can use and Hanno got in touch with the LibriVox developers to find out. After some emails and chats everything we needed was provided and Nikolaj sat down to code the script for the service in a very short time and it is now one of our nicest scripted services. All of this was just a matter of a few days and getting the right people to work together.
Hanno has been so kind to do a short video. Please enjoy and thanks to Hanno for the video and for bringing this wonderful service to our attention in the first place.


This should show you two things:
1) Is is really easy to integrate a service into Amarok 2.
2) If you have great ideas and help us realize them amazing things can happen.

Paros, Greece

Due to lucky coincidences I got to spend one week in Greece together with my stepsister on a lovely island named Paros. It was great! Weather was nice enough to go swimming and get a sunburn. We got to see most of the island thanks to having rented a small car. Driving through the hills looking down on the water was fun. I can only recommend going to Paros in the last week of the tourist season like we did. Most of the time we only had to share hotel, beaches and restaurants with 2 or 3 people and often we even were on our own.

Greek salad
Best salad ever. (I am still trying to recreate it.)

No butterflies!
The only bad thing about being on Paros so late in the year: You don’t get to see butterflies :/

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed,
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance,
I hope you dance.
