[Tuturial] Clear Your Rhythmbox Libary

As a recent convert from the now wounded KDE I have only been using Rhythmbox for a relatively short time now.  Up to this point I came to the conclusion that although it isn't no Windows Media Player or Amarok for that matter, it would do.  That was until I moved my music library from one drive to another and quickly noticed that there wasn't any clear way to change library locations once you have set them.

[News] Pioneer One: A TV Series born from BitTorrent

Pioneer One is breaking the mold in terms of how TV series will be released to you in the future.  After some digging, it seems the creators of Pioneer One used to launch their pledge campaign to get the pilot finished and launched.  I'm not usually a indie film type of person as I like my movies big budget and big action.  But this pilot episode really took me by surprise.  Refreshingly good in the plot department.  Keep in mind this is a pilot episode and I haven no idea which direction the show will take but on the surface it struck me as a X-Files type of show.  In any case if you're a supporter of BitTorrent, file-sharing, or like the idea of the creators of a show actually having final say in its production you really should check this show out.
