Apple iPod Mini 4gb, 2nd Generation

Today I am going to purchase a second generation Ipod Mini.

UPDATE:When I got to the store I was happy, the price was only 200,000 won! Cool 🙂 But, when I opened the box, I noticed it had an AC adapter and a firewire cable. This means it is the old, original iPod Mini.
So I did not buy it as I want the extended battery life. Interestingly when I tried to turn the iPod on the battery was flat. Has it been sitting in a box for a year and the battery has failed? Or is this normal?
I went to Homeplus and checked out a iPod there and the same thing happened with the battery.
Anyway my iPod will arive on Tuesday, it will cost 230,000 won. I wonder if the battery is flat or not? The battery at most will only be two months old b/c it is a new battery for this model of the iPod mini.

iPod Lounger review of second generation iPods

I am quite excited about this. I always told myself that while iPods are nice they are a little expensive. But Apple’s pricing has changed for the better now.
The second generation iPod introduced a new 6 gb hard drive and much better battery life. The model with the old 4 gb drive is now priced much less.
So I have decided to get one. It costs 230,000 won (Korean) or AUD $300

iTunes XHMTL playlist is a great little program for Windows or Macintosh OS X.
What it does is let you create a web page with a list of all of your songs or a list of any of your playlists. You can then put that list up on your website.

TECHNICAL: Python on Powweb

TECHNICAL: Python on Powweb
I wanted to find out if Python (A programming language like PHP or Perl) could be run on my web provider, Powweb
It seems it can:

I just happened to check if Powweb supported Python scripts. I guess I can put up some scripts now.

* Python is installed on Powweb at /usr/local/bin/python

* It is version 2.2.2. I had to add:
AddHandler cgi-script py
to cgi-bin/.htaccess to get it to run. This apparently gets you execution through suexec, since I was able to run it with 700.

I got Python working on my web service provider Powweb using the above technique. Some test scripts wouldn’t work with the ‘.py’ extension but ‘.cgi’ was fine. I think I need to modify something in my .htaccess file to read the .py extensions fine.

I ran a script SnakeCharmer on the server to see which modules were installed. I was impressed to find that they are running the latest Python version 2.4 and it looks like all the modules are installed.
