Shpongle - Electroplasm

Since the two guys Simon Posford and Raja Ram - together also known as the music project Shpongle - have been around since quite awhile (actually since 1998) I just wanted to make sure you don't miss 'em, especially if you like music which is related to Psytrance, Ambient, Goa and Downtempo. I also highly recommend the very first album "Are You Shpongled?" from 1998. Here's a quick peek from their latest album:

WhisperCore and LBE Privacy Guard for Android

You already got an Android smartphone but there are still news popping up about malicious applications hitting the Android Market?

Then it's time to root your phone. Seriously.

"Why should I?" you might ask now? Well, there are two good reasons:

LBE Privacy Guard ( and WhisperCore (,

both free for private usage.

While the first one can be installed on (any?) rooted device and intercepts certain information such as getting your IMEI number, access to your call logs, contacts and such by applications you already installed, the second one (WhisperCore) is an entire custom ROM which even encrypts all your data and brings security to the foreground. WhisperCore is in early beta phase (that is, unfinished!) right now -- anyway, looks very promising to me.

Think of LBE Privacy Guard as some kind of desktop firewall where you can grant or deny rights for your installed applications. If you don't want to let application X to go to the internet, just deny it -- LBE simply will ask you.

Give these both tools a try, it's worth it!

Using compressed air in a slightly different way ...

Back ... and: Sunflower File Manager

Whew ... long time no post! Ok, have to admit that I was on vacation for a while (Austria is great, even for hiking ...) and I'm a bit of a lazy guy when it comes to posting new blog entries this summer ...anyway, here we go with a brand new entry:

Looking for a good graphical double-sided Linux file manager (like Total Commander on Windows)? You already tried the well-known stuff like GNOME-Commander or Tux-Commander and even less-known starters like Double Commander ( but you aren't satisfied yet?

Then take a look at Sunflower File Manager, located here:

It's a pretty new project and far from being complete, but I have to say - after a while of testing on several Linux boxes - it runs pretty stable and reliable for me -- better than the other alternatives mentioned above.

I'll stay with it.
