kindle version pre-ordered. thanks for the heads up.
got two of the B models. one for openelec and one for munin.
if this, new, model had a dual-core CPU and 1GB of RAM i'd be sold on it but the extra USB ports and micro SD don't warrant a purchase...for me anyway.
i appreciate the technical challenge but can't see them serving up as much spectacle
just makes me miss the 70s and 80s trial bike TV show.
especially the episode with the st john ambulance guy repeatedly falling into a hole.
never pledged...never seen anything of interest the couple of times i've looked.
they'll not appear if adblock is installed...?
but now i'm not.
running an open NTP server on ubuntu server 12.04. it provides version 4.2.6.
read about this a couple of weeks ago but thought i was running the latest version...plainly i was wrong.
glad i had a peek at this today.
you're quite right...had some doubts not long after posting... i have the 'not that cheap' 16GB version...
stuck touch on my old s2 a while back (maybe 6 moths ago) and while it looked alright...that was about it. lacking in functionality and i scrubbed it and went back to cyanogenmod.
it's not going near my nexus 4 due to the lack of internal storage (yeah...i bought the 'cheap' 16GB version).
i've stuck tiny tiny rss (http://tt-rss.org/redmine/projects/tt-rss/wiki) on one of my servers. bit of a daft name but it's a powerful piece of coding. working very well for my friends and myself. it has some slick android clients too.
for me on my s2 (cyanogen 4.2.2) and performance is acceptable. zoom levels, however, not so good. tapping like a morse code operator to get things at a readable size. used to use opera mini on my old nokia (some symbian based thing...can't remember the catchy numbers) and it dealt with pages better than this.
back to dolphin (and very occasionally firefox) for me.
some of that sounds nice (SSD caching especially) but as i use debian stable on my servers i might get it around 2027...
have gotten too used to a VPS. couldn't be doing with out shell access...
i'm sure, here, everyone knows how to do it with a client but just in case...
i agree 'Matt 89'...no reason why anything other than the webserver should need access to the cache directory anyway.
chmod 700 -R name-of-cache-directory
should do it. i'll prepare for the downvotes...haven't posted on here in a while and i fear the worst...
test the alpha and beta versions of xubuntu (gave up on ubuntu testing with 12.04 as unity just doesn't do it for me) until the rc and then move back to debian testing (with openbox). started with 6.06 when ubuntu seemed fresh and new. it doesn't any more.
to try it? i don't effin think so.
they don’t like it up ’em...
yeah i run a home mail server under debian 5. it's running spamassasin, needs very little patching and consumes very little power. current uptime is sitting at 169 days...
it needs few updates/patching as it's running few services and if it goes down (monitored by siteuptime) i point my remote dns to a server i've got running on the rackspace cloud.
simples? well maybe not quite...
register a domain of your choice, point it to your home adsl and host your own mail server. simples. complete control.
been running the nightly builds for a few weeks and there's not much to report. some addon issues but i've got roumd them.runs smoothly enough.
i'm almost ashamed to admit that...
i installed the rtm build of windows 7 in a virtual machine (virtualbox 3) under debian 5.
it actually runs quite well but is still a bit too vista-ish with commonly used features only able to be accessed through multiple menus and windows.
i'll be sticking with me old mate lenny but if a friend or family member was considering buying it i'd not berate them all that much.
i've still got my well thumbed copy from 20 years ago which, inexplicably, helped me get my 'o grade' english.
paper rules in the book world.
been using this for months and it can be handy...only problem is that i forget its there half the time...a bit like gnome-do...
encountered no problems with this release or rc2 (which is more than can be said for rc1). now if only certain add-on writers would catch up...
why are the players so pricey??
vpn - virtual pirate network...
that's the sound most of this made as it went right over my head :-)
in their armor are becoming gaping holes. glad its not my primary email account...still a nuisance though.
excellent! thumbs up to all involved
if the jails in sweden are anything like the ones in scotland then #gulp# is right...
i wonder if chuck can code...an ideal site admin methinks
there's a beta of chrome called chromium for linux. you need to compile it but it's easier than previous versions. don't have url handy as i'm using my mobile.
