Re: Streaming music

I've had several of those these last few months. One of them did actually state my real (then) password, owing to the data leak at Adobe becoming public.

Re: Streaming music

One I’ve built myself using a Raspberry Pi computer with two 1Tb hard drives. It cost less than £200 and uses about 5W of power so I let it run 24/7. The music player is another RPi running moOde...
