Re: Are you telling me... @Gordon
I don't know if two countries makes it a World Series, but here you go:
Also I hear it's very popular in the Dominican and Japan.
A few thoughts
I didn't see it mentioned. You may want to cover the magnets and contact points with some sort of conductive low-temperature grease to ensure they don't freeze together.
May also be a good idea to rig the wires forward of the connectors (in relation to the plane) so you have some forward momentum at the break-away point.
Spreadsheets aren't databases.
Feeding the Trolls
"To be honest, I didn't even bother reading the article."
"Looks like they're trying too hard to compete with DisUnity in order to try to win back Shuttleworth."
Had you read the article you may have noted that Gnome3 has been in development for 5 years, much longer than Unity has been and clearly not around solely to compete with Ubuntu.
"Quite offputting to see the direction the linux desktop is heading in. I much prefer usability over looks."
Also if you had been reading you may note that the whole point of Gnome3 is usability via improved work flow and reduced clutter; not looks.
Hydropower you say?
"it is the operation phase that remains the dominant contributor to the environmental burden caused by transport service as long as the electricity for the [battery car] is not produced by renewable hydropower ..."
All set in Canada then!
Not so bad
"'Renewables account for 62% of the new electricity generation capacity installed in the EU in 2009' ... we see that in fact far more energy will be generated by new gas-fired equipment (28 Terawatt-hours each year) than by new wind (20 TWh/yr) or solar (5.6 TWh/yr)."
If your numbers are correct then I wouldn't say that "farm more" energy is gas-fired. Your numbers show two renewables compared to gas being at 47% of the total. Not the numbers reported by the EU by any means, but not exactly "far more" either.
The Invasion is spreading!
Thousands or more zombies in the each bot net and the security firms can't let a couple honey pots send a few thousand e-mails to add to the billions that are already sent? Isn't it more important to get the research data then to worry about spreading the bot to a few more machines? Quit being high and mighty and get the job done!
Keep well informed
Some old, some new, some improved
"Next comes Tear Off Tabs, which - as in Apple's Safari - allows tabs to be dragged into a separate browser window. A neat touch is Recently Closed Tabs and Recently Closed Windows, which gets you back where you were after accidentally closing a page."
Moving tabs between windows and re-opening recently closed tabs has been around for a while now. The new version of tab movement is much more efficient (doesn't have to reload the site) and the new recently closed windows is a nice feature. I've saved myself, and friends, many times with the Recently Closed Tabs feature.
I find that Firefox 3.5 loads faster and opens new tabs faster than Firefox 3.0. All-in-all, a great release.
OpenOffice lags Microsoft Office?
"With an email and productivity offering of its own - and given OpenOffice lags Microsoft Office by years - the omens for OpenOffice are not good, even though - Schwartz claimed - "the point's not lost on Oracle we are adding three million users a week.""
Exactly how does OpenOffice.org lag years behind Microsoft Office? It doesn't have a gimicy interface? I doesn't support the [non]-standard OpenXML which Microsoft themselves don't even support? OpenOffice.org has even done a great job porting over proprietary MSOffice crap.
Defenition of a Trojan
"have to download and install it though, less of a trojan and more of an exploit of un intelligent people methinks"
A trojan is an exploit that is disguised as something you want. You have to run it for it to be installed. So it's a trojan.
