Birthday schwag

I’m a year older today (but sadly no wiser), so in honor of the occasion my wife bought me a ton of gifts – the boldest of which was Apple’s Airport Express which links iTunes to your stereo. I’ve just set this up so can play Internet radio, mp3 files (and podcasts I guess) from my laptop over our wifi network to the stereo. I was worried it wouldn’t be compatible with my network (a 2Wire Homeportal – incidentally a client of ours) but it was a cinch to set up and seems to work very well.

Also bagged the new Coldplay album which, quite literally, rocks.
