Orion’s Podcast: Robosonic (Diskomafia, Germany)

By | Blogs & Podcasts, Main | No Comments

Shortly before releasing their new album, “Sturm & Drang” , Robosonic hits the podcast with a full-on guest mix. Full of twists and turns, from rocking electro to chilly electronica and grooving minimal, the mix also features rappers Panik Panzer & Kotti Kot and makes it rather a compilation of mash-ups than an ordinary mix. To get more information about Robosonic and the upcoming album, please visit or their MySpace at

Here’s my profile, too.

Just as a note, Facebook finally managed to make a clean, goodlooking online community and fix all the problems MySpace had. Compared to MySpace, I really enjoy exploring Facebook and trying out new features. I have no problems saying goodbye to MySpace after using Facebook for a couple of weeks.

New website coming up…

By | Blogs & Podcasts | No Comments

The past days there has been some serious design work for the full upgrade of this website. Some of the current tasks include Flickr and YouTube intergration, some RSS-based content management and – finally – moving from Movable Type to WordPress.

Also, this website still has parts which are way over five years old. The structure includes tables, iframes and other not too modern web design stuff. Looking forward to a fully CSS-based layout.

But after all this tech talk, I’d like to hear if there’s anything what the current pages lack, any functionalities which should be added or something which simply doesn’t work at the moment. The better page we can make to serve your needs, the merrier :) Leave a comment or send some mail.

I joined Jaiku. Jaiku is like Twitter. It’s just Finnish. And better (also for other reasons;).

Even though the original or the main idea of Jaiku – blogging (or writing Jaikus) from everywhere, letting people know where you are and what you do – does not interest me too much, there’s still something very useful: bringing all your rss-feeds together.

So basically, by subscribing to the Jaiku feed of mine, you’ll get not only the latest Flickr photos and Youtube videos from my accounts to your feed reader but also the latest blog entries and the podcasts, too. No more lame, useless browsing :)

Here’s my Jaiku feed:
And the site itself here:

Go, give a try. And if not, don’t worry, the old feed of this blog and other services will remain unchanged.

Netvibes to support podcasts

By | Blogs & Podcasts | No Comments

Netvibes podcast feature

Netvibes offers a very nice user interface for listening new podcasts. All subscribed podcasts appear in a basic rss-feed form, but there are two buttons for each entry: “listen” and “download”.

Basically you can stream every podcast which sounds interesting before downloading it. As I’ve subscribed to nearly 30 different podcasts, it took all my bandwidth to download all the new casts everytime I opened iTunes. I’m more than happy to select the best mixes using this interface and leaving iTunes just for my music library.
