Tourist's view on Hamburg in 4 days

I've been to Hamburg quite often because I know several people there, but I always missed the chance to do the usual tourist stuff there. So this time, we booked a hotel, bought a tourist guide, and made a tourist trip to Hamburg. It was really great. We had really good weather and spend most of the time outside.
First day we took the train to Blankenese and walked back to Hamburg. Okay, from Övelgönne on we took the ferry boad back to Landungsbrücken.
Second day we visited the Miniaturwunderland (that's a must for everyone who likes model railways), walked through the new Hafencity and the Speicherstadt, climbed the stairs of the "Michel" and had a boat trip in the harbour.
I can really recommend Hamburg, it's worth spending some days there. The northern people of germany are very different and I like their style ;)
Finnally some pictures... enjoy...

DLNA Media Server for my PS3 (update)

One year ago I came up with a post about my media server installation on the Linkstation for my PS3. I still stick to the TwonkyServer on the Linkstation but just due to lack of mips-support on other servers. For example the PS3 Media Server has some really interesting features for example YouTube, flickr and picasa support, where the YouTube feature did not work for me, but anyway, the project is work-in-progress and worth to have a loot at.
