Internet radio on Wii GET

Want to listen to Internet radio on your Wii? Try Wii Hear. They have 45 stations available so far, and are adding more all the time. Plus their player makes EXTREMELY satisfying Mario sound effects.

Want to listen to stations they don’t offer? Or stations that aren’t Shoutcast/Icecast streams? I asked how and within 36 hours, some wonderful person came along with all the secrets! The lazyweb triumphs again! Sort of.

Feed on Feeds moved to Google Code

Feed on Feeds, once and future king of open source web based feed aggregators, has now completed its move to Google Code. There’s no official new release yet, but there is some early code available in svn for the adventurous.

There’s also a newish project blog. Now would be a good time to subscribe to it.

Cate: Chinese Word of the Day

– Hou4 – Back, Behind, Rear, Afterwards, After, Later

最後 – Zui4 Hou4 – Most Back — Final, Last

That’s right! This is the FINAL “Word of the Day”! Clearly I can’t go on forever, and I figured one thousand three hundred and eighteen is a nice round number to stop at. Or it may have something to do with the new year and all that. Happy 2007, by the way!

Here are a few sites for those of you who need some help breaking the addiction: our old favorite 中文.com (has a word a day feature), Oneaday (a Chinese proverb every day), and Audio Word of the Day (multi-lingual!).

I’ll still be here, of course, posting my normal stuff, possibly a little more often. Some of them might even be Chinese words … just not one every day.

Thanks to everybody who has ever read even a single one of these, and special thanks to everybody who wrote in saying they liked “Word of the Day”. I was always amazed to get any readers at all other than friends and family, and pretty much flabbergasted when anybody actually LIKED it.

再見! – Zai4 Jian4! – Good Bye!
