A couple of days ago I found the most excellent plugin for Winamp. At work I usually tend to lock my workstation when I leave the desk. Maybe I’m a bit paranoid, but you never know. I also listen to music at work, but it’s a PITA to have to stop Winamp every time I leave the desk. Not anymore: BitchSoft Auto Pause automatically pauses Winamp when you lock your computer and un-pauses it when you log in again. A real gem.

Talking about music and gems, it looks like the good guys over at Soma FM have yet another virtual radio channel on the air for us, Space Station Soma. Spaced-out ambient and mid-tempo electronica. So far it sounds like a nice blend between Bluemars and Groove Salad, just right for those first sixty minutes at work in the morning.
