Bartsidee Repository

The best boxee repository and apps without any doubt is the Bartsidee Repository. The best app in this repository is BartsideeTV, including all of the other singles apps in the repository. It's a great looking interface and layout and it's very easy to use. The bartsideeTV consists of the following source modules:

- Hulu (not working on boxee box)
- BBC iPlayer (including hd and subtitle support)
- Dutch channels ( sbs, uzg, nl24, tmf)
- Youtube
- svtplay (Swedish)
- CBC (Canadian)
- Navi-x (No script support)
- Zdf and ARD (full mediathek + subtitles)

You could select individual modules and put together those you want most. You could search inside one module or search across several. The Navi-x module is actually functioning better than the original navi-x app.

Hakluyt Society First Series

I have just bought The publications of the Hakluyt Society (founded in 1846) made available edited (and sometimes translated) early accounts of exploration. The first series, which ran from 1847 to 1899, consists of 100 books containing published or previously unpublished works by authors from Christopher Columbus to Sir Francis Drake, and covering voyages to the New World, to China and Japan, to Russia and to Africa and India, over a period from the middle ages to the late eighteenth century.
