If you listen to a lot of music on your computer, you should definitely check out Last.fm “scrobbling.” Basically you add a plugin to your media player and whenever you play a song, it sends that song’s information to a server, where they compile information about the music you listen to.
As promised, I’m here with an update for one of the best places to eat near campus. Thai Noodle House, located behind Ming’s Cafe near Guadalupe and 27th street on the northeast side of campus. It’s nicely tucked away, with a modest sign near the side of the road pointing to the restaurant.
