tried ext4 on xubuntu jaunty at work
no major problems ....quite stable imo, had to delete it as some xp-using numpty kept deleting the panels : ("yes, there's no c-drive.. yes , ctrl-alt-del dosent reboot the system...etc) Still waiting for btrfs with baited breath.
i blame dilbert
'Elf n Safety note....
If you use this service to make cold calls during "peak commuting times" .... what are your legal liabilities? Do you have to do a risk assessment beforehand , if you're a company?
...Should be interesting... Verrrrry interesting!
I find it a bit worrying that some companies/institutions are so insecure they actually have facebook police!... Are they paid for their labours, or is this "concerned parents" ..etc.
I've seen enough of this out-of-control heavy handed micromanagement to last a lifetime.
Hard disks are increasingly going to get use for near-line archival use
=pr0n collection.Need improved collection manager.
NFTS volume limit is 2^64-1 clusters, though Windows implementations so far (upto WS2003/XP at least) work with a lower maximum of 2^31-1 clusters.
Dosent apply with EXT or ZFS tho. I can see a case where XP luddites will eventually have to move ...possible hardware war on the horizon between FOSS and M$ fanbois?
has anyone actually asked acer...

Makes Dr Pepper look drinkable...
.....remember dasani? - "what's the worst that can happen?"
does this mean......
.....winmodems are back?<shudders>
Good for overtaking cyclists...
...but bad for trips to B&Q , ikea, DFS, Sofa World...etc.etc.
Saw a G-Whiz yesterday scooting down the A4 like a b*st*rd yesterday.... they're pretty fast on the side roads. This one was heading towards slough... don't suppose the chavs break into 'em much?And they can't torch 'em afterwards either.Does this make them the ideal urban runabout?
... it's them damn cameraphones they had the problem with.
Doubt the TD's would look half as good..... BTW, whats their criteria? A girl could claim she's just...really... really ....popular?And whaddabout the rent boys? Sexism, i tell you!
.......before it becomes "self aware"?
""Talk is cheap.... what asus should do is load any new eeepc's with nvidia /ati hardware, so they can REALLY paint themselves into a corner.. (Proprietary drivers)."
I'm not sure what point is being made here.."
Personal Rant .....My desktop is a barebones with an ASUS M3N78-EMH HDMI motherboard +Athlon cpu, my netbook is an Aspire One . Both run the same linux distro (Opensuse 11.1).
Guess which one has the most problems? And guess which one works perfectly?
....and I STILL won't go back to the MS treadmill.

@I can answer that.

At £25.00 per item, maybe they're talking about the porn industry!
@re and another thing......I've got a copy of "Debbie does Dallas", if you want it.

Does it come with...

on a less serious note..

I agree...very nice bag .Not sure about the brick to the head though... (prefer the twist -and-pull method myself) . Kind of funny reading the response to this article though...(irony, we've heard of it)

How come politics.ie completely missed this?!!!
We need a tribunal..

Pretty-Boy MSCE's can do what they like! I prefer people who WORK for a living.People who actually can code!

Most people seem to have missed the point here. The eco-turrurists harping on about the benefits of mass leccy tech adoption when we're facing going back to tallow lamps and horse and cart.(Boris, you've been warned!!!...get a shovel)

Just installed Opensuse 11.1....
...on an Aspire one I bought during the week ...with compiz and all the trimmings ..
SWEET!.. ....So glad i'm off the M$ treadmill.
16gb ssd with windows?
Hope the SSD is under warranty.
That is all!
I told you so!!!
No tuner required ... just a pc . System is already in place in Ireland
Bring on three strikes , so I can tell em all to FOAD!!!!
Both hands on the wheel?
At least he's a bit more honest than the mobile phone users ... gardai will be in touch, i'll bet.
Would be useful to deploy this as a "man down " alarm.... I heard the jesus phone might have such a feature.
That is all
Sounds like an interesting guy..
...hmm ! If Three Strikes becomes statutary, how much of an increase in this "sort of thing" (apologies to Father Ted) will occur in the future? ...and how many by Tory MP's?
.... Have Popcorn handy, await results!!!!!
Don't forget methane!!
Remember , CO2 isn't the only greenhouse gas , and burgers don't come from a "Burger Factory"
Mine's a Deep fried Big Mac with chips.
I've said this before...
...and i'll say it again .
one years disconnection ?
Assuming 4hrs video @ basic tv quality/night (=1400mb)
(350mb/hr X 4 X 365 =511000mb/yr =499.02343gb/yr)
That's under 500gb people .....the size of a (relatively) small hard drive!
Remember "home taping is killing music"?
You don't NEED the internet to share files.
Time someone told 'em to stop wasting our money on "project Canute" and get back to doing whatever they were doing before the internet.
"The unnamed 51-year-old"
Agreed... but also think on this ...
What if someone DELIBERATELY sent a false update to the gps, and it wouldn't let you over 30 on a motorway? Check the small print in your insurance.
Classic distraction method..
They'd rather do this rather than face any questions about the economy.
......oh, and by the way, how's the Redress Board going?
....Linux, BSD, and all POSIX have a certain learning curve , which, for some, is a bit too steep.
Remember, this IS the Public Service we're talking about . (Think semi-trained chimps...most won't associate their IT budget with their HR budget, and will probably go on strike once a significant number get canned...not that we'll notice)
I hope you're not suggesting they aim below the belt!
assault with a deadly weapon and attempted murder are civil actions in the us ? not criminal?
....try to keep up.
Why isn't this a criminal case? Pulling out and levelling a gun is legally the same as firing it...but without the damage.("Production of a weapon is intention of use...")
She should be getting a drumhead trial and five years minimum... more , maybe, because she's in the public eye.. oh .....and confiscate her passport.
poor old gary kasparov ....
Feedback is important
I'm more worried about where it will end!
IMO this is a protectionist policy . Nothing has been mentioned about wether this is a 2 way street for taxation of non-us companies in the US .The current crisis has been caused by toxic debt generated in the US and distributed worldwide... no accountability there either.
As far as Ireland is concerned, remember this
1) It hasn't joined Schengen
2) Lisbon 2 is coming up.
3) It isn't in NATO .... other European countries might decide not to continue paying for it also.
4) The IRS have threatened the Revenue Commissioners before for disclosure .... RC told 'en to feck off.... they'd tax them themselves.I can see this increasing in frequency
Couple this with the fact that a very high proportion of americans don't posess a passport,and a turbulent economy , Multinationals could split into US and separate Non-US companies, and another Iron curtain could descend.(See Opel-Fiat , Cadbury-Schweppes more to follow )
I wouldn't worry about Ireland ... I'd worry about Canada.
As we speak...
... furitive phone calls from the concrete donut (yes i spelled it right) to washington, and mr Sauvage is being made an offer he can't refuse.
Wouldn't worry about the antimatter!
What about the solex agitator/ green-solar-leccy-initiative ????
Bet the vatican has finally been taken over by the illuminati: Now all we need is some orbiting solar mirrors, some very large piezo induction converters (say, about the size of a building.... maybe with a large ariel/cross on top) ...hmmmmm ...... and i also see robots ......i see BIG robots!!!!
BNP will LOVE getting access to this data.
My guess some minister will get the idea of "renting " access on weekends to the PRS or MPAA or RIAA or Phorm or somebody. Remember, ministers have mortgages too.. they need all the backhanders they can get!
Don't you still need a work permit to work on the isle of man?
(Yes, even UK citizens..unless you're a priest or in the military)
.....all I can say is , I hope they put the crosses the right way up.
Mine's the one with the rental copy of " the wicker man " in the pocket
"These are not the'droids you are looking for"
.......awaiting the final verdict from our non-fleshy shoulder-turreted overlords.
Is it xp ONLY mode?
...or can I (for balance ) install a copy of opensuse , or fedora, or (shock) opensolaris there?
At least you could give Eircom the finger.!!! :-)
Way to go!!!
