This Space for Rent

Not actually a workstations

I wish

A first generation Apple TV (picked up at Goodwill for $20) that I’m poking and prodding into being our stereo system. They keyboard looks pretty, but the kernel on this particular Unix box doesn’t have USB support so all it’s just decorative (and even if not, Frontrow – that is not a UI that deals well with keyboards.)

My long-term goal is to trawl the web to see if anyone has figured a way to drive the iTunes on this thing from a shell; if I can play music from a command line, then I can do it from a tiny web server and get an interface that’s not quite as klunky as the Remote app on the iPhone.
