I bought this Bluetooth USB dongle earlier this week, plugged it in this morning, installed the software and went online – via mobile. IT WORKS! IT ACTUALLY WORKS! Can you imagine?

No need for any dumb Nokia modem drivers, no huge software packages that need to be run on autostart, no buggy user interfaces – this little stick just works the way it is supposed to be working. Technology that makes me smile again :-)

Hat tip to my ndugu Mzeecedric for pointing me to the updated wp-shortstat plugin as well as to SlimStat – on which I’ll need to have a closer look once I’ve decided on my next wp-theme/template: Regulus 2, Fauna Beta 3, Sirius 1.0 or K2 Beta Two? The latter one comes with an awesome AJAX-powered live search among other goodies. I especially like K2, but understand that it will be difficult to implement my neat (Tusker-styled) Flickr-badge. Stay tuned!
Haraka haraka, haina baraka :-)



…so I spent the best part of the day trying to configure a new (great!) theme for my wp-powered blog, lakini there’s no real good template/theme out there which works the way I want it unless I invest a few more hours of stylesheet tuning. Curiosity of course lures me into this theme-switching-business, alafu there might be some changes to this site soon.

In the meantime, let me please entertain you with some more music – this time something from the 1970s Kenya I’ve mentioned earlier: Matata "talkin talkin" (with Steele Beauttah). An almost brutal song on which Pitchfork says: "Sweet mother popcorn, funk does not get any grittier than this. The bass and drums are tough as rawhide and the lead vocal is a dirty, filthy, nasty delight. The thousand-watt horns blare so brightly you can feel the air passing over the curved brass. Kenya only produced a few notable funk bands in the 70s, but Matata were truly world-class."

Remember, this is from Kenya! Enjoy :-)
