Antarctic's First Plane, Found In Ice 110

Posted by timothy

Arvisp writes "In 1912 Australian explorer Douglas Mawson planned to fly over the southern pole. His lost plane has now been found. The plane – the first off the Vickers production line in Britain – was built in 1911, only eight years after the Wright brothers executed the first powered flight. For the past three years, a team of Australian explorers has been engaged in a fruitless search for the aircraft, last seen in 1975. Then on Friday, a carpenter with the team, Mark Farrell, struck gold: wandering along the icy shore near the team's camp, he noticed large fragments of metal sitting among the rocks, just a few inches beneath the water."

I do also recommend SqueezeBoxes, I have three. You have a variety of them for different purposes and the server is open source written in perl.

Each device can be controlled with their own remote, or by using the web interface or by bying a dedicated controller (running linux and you can ssh into it if you wish). iPhone/Android have controlling software available on their markets if that's what you use.

Very convenient.

Nobody's gonna believe that computers are intelligent until they start coming in late and lying about it.
