That wouldn't be popular
Dropping KDE would be a terrible idea. Just look at Slackware dropping GNOME. It's years since Patrick Volkerding did that and the moaning resumes with every new point release.
Were Shuttleworth to drop KDE he'd be giving plenty of ammunition to Ubuntu's detractors and inviting crap reviews. He's too much of a pragmatist to do that.
(I don't use Ubuntu BTW)
I ignored the link in the email and looked for the changes from their home page.
Let's be careful out there.
Won't somebody think of the children?
So donors bat one off at home and bring it in themselves?
Public transport filled with men carrying jars of their own jizz. Won't somebody think of the children?
Cow burps aren't as bad as thought
The figures for meat production and greenhouse gasses are being challenged, resulting in this interesting (and ballsy) climbdown from no less than George Monbiot this week.
The last one would've been tolerable had Dredd had kept his helmet on. And had Dredd been played by anyone except Stallone (seriously: anyone - Pee Wee Herman, Thora Hird, even a trained seal would've delivered his lines better, anyone).
So much for the Nano
My 2nd gen Nano is getting a little crashy and I was pondering a replacement. From my POV Apple's ruined it. So my choices are previous gen Nano or non-Apple. The latter's favourite.
And dashed good fun
Experiments like sodium in water (especially followed by potassium - which had me looking down the periodic table imagining even better pyrotechnics) and the thermite experiment are a great way for a science teacher to get the kids excited about the subject.
I pity these Scottish schoolids and their sanitised, dull science lessons.
Xtian metal is shite. There are exceptions like early Trouble and the fact that Tom Araya's a Catholic.
Who the hell are the China-Russians?
They're 2 separate nations you ignorant hick bastard!
I'm near a giant Coke bottle LOL
Meanwhile their friends got incredibly bored reading the most boring status updates ever.
Correction: it would be nice if society makes up its mind...
...but no one does hypocrisy like soceity
Either he works for Sony or needs to switch off his console and get out more.
Alcoholism is harmful, as it getting so wankered you can't get home or whatever.
In moderation it's fine and quite fun if you ask me.
My idea of hell
"Are you sure you should be baking another pie, Mr Code Monkey, sir?"
/me smashes the damned kitchen with hammers
You can set them them to be accessible from localhost only.
It's an excellent platform
Cost has been CF's biggest problem, when most competing platforms are free.
In its favour is it's very quick to develop and maintain web apps. Scaling is great and server management is a breeze.
We're mostly a Java shop now but we've still got about 20 CF servers in production. Our or our customers' sysadmins look after Windows updates but the CF side is managed (very well) by developers.
I've very fond memories of ColdFusion but I'd not want to look for a job without something else on my CV
You have to admit that Sun did become very bad at making money
I recommend Lamebook.
I don't work for them; I just like to spend 10 minutes a day laughing at the stupid.
You've got to admire him. No way could I sit through an entire Jenifer Aniston movie, no matter how much money I could make off the knock-off DVDs.
Apart from the sport, I agree
It's good at sport, rubbish at everything else. I've really no interest in what the "Great British Public" has to say about anything. And if their phone-ins are anything to go by the country's full of knuckle-scrapers from Dagenham who blame immigration for everything.
I'm not sure when, but...
I'd take a guess that *legally* an unmarried girl becomes a spinster as soon as she is old enough to be married.
When my (then) girlfriend and I arranged our wedding, the registry office legal papers referred to her as a spinster. She wasn't happy at all.
