A look at some of the best apps, hacks and mashups available for music streaming and scrobbling service Last.fm.

Curious about alternatives Last.fm’s broken RSS feeds and what people are doing with their listening data. Some relatively interesting ideas in here, but nothing earth shattering. One or two were focused on visualization, but otherwise nothing I felt I could use.

We’re off like a shot. Somehow it doesn’t seem terrifically believable that the escape convicts so easily take Fletch’s advice on where to hide, but he does a fantastic job of coralling them in the opeining.

Some of the overt “Southernness” feels overdone to me, but perhaps it was the effect of Mcdonald’s many years living in Tennessee which had a tarnishing effect.

Our 8′ Christmas tree needs a small shortening to come down to at least 7’10”. The newly cut bottom will also let it soak up more water and last longer.

Read How to print your posters on fabric by Veronika CheplyginaVeronika Cheplygina (Veronikach.com)
My material of choice became fabric. After some searching, I settled on this product, in particular the “vlaggendoek” or “flag sheet” variety. This material weights just 115 grams for 1m2, which is conveniently almost the same size as an A0 (841mm × 1189mm). Printing + delivery costs just over 20 euros, which is actually cheaper than an A0 paper poster with a plastic coating. That’s not all: apparently the material is fire retardant, because you never know when fire could break out at a conference. But the best thing of all? You can fold it and it still looks great when you unfold it!
