Heard the baby's heartbeat yesterday on Clare's mobile phone, how cool is that?

Clare had a midwife appointment yesterday while I was at work, everything is good, Clare and the baby are healthy. I have mentioned we have been trying to hear the baby's heartbeat with a stethoscope I bought1, no joy. By some modern technological MAGIC though, the midwife helped Clare record the heartbeat on her mobile phone, for me to hear. How clever is that?

UPDATE: Yeah I will try and upload it so you can hear it too! Good idea Vickster!

UPDATE UPDATE: Here it is.

This is what she says anyway, it could have been just some high pitched human beatboxing they were doing, I really am not sure what goes on at these midwife appointments.

Still struggling with this XBMC lark, following this guide2 on, which may be out of date. Seems there is a legal issue with distributing the software I need, so though it's free it's not freely available on the web. I have to jump through the hoop of messaging a bot on an irc channel and being granted temporary access to an ftp server. All feels a bit '80s, and I seem to get kicked out every time I get in. Getting hold of this is like some complex old school adventure game. So, still seeking the Splinter Cell exploit. I'll get there!

xbmc: XBox Media Centre, some code that would run on an old X-box or other computer hardware to play movies + music etc. I used to talk about this a lot...
