dogfooding means "using your own product"
hold on a minute
As a student, I would work at a frozen fruit factory, The machine went whirr clunk and the meat bags had an action to perform, Nothing new here, it what used to happen, perhaps amazon read one of the history books they sell and thought ......
Lets see he is related to Saul Klein of Index Ventures
"Klein is lucky enough to have a relative who is one of the biggest names in London's venture capital community. Saul Klein of Index Ventures"
and he's still begging for money to repackage a Pi, Still slightly cheaper than maplin !
And Intel and AMD for the crap ware that comes with their prebuilt systems too please
Re: Re: hhhmmmm
I think they mean Hand Egg !
Re: Will they block themselves
an OBI110 and the raspberry pi running astrix, My line ask the caller to press 1 to continue, 99% of crap never gets thru, and the 1% that does is logged making reporting easy :)
Always a backup
Dear NSA, can i please have your backup copy of php.net The main one seems to be broken !
You mean humans use twitter ?
What about Machine account, I have never really seen the point of Human to Human Twitter communications,
but as for machine to human, now that is useful, a couple of line of code and my door bell now tweets when it's rung, Once i add the camera to the pi, it will tweet an image of the button presser too.
When i was running large batches of data processing, the machine tweeted, Feed me when it had reached the end of it data..
very useful easy to implement and fits in your pocket !
Most people only need it to update the immune deficient OS that it's attached to !
mmmm they could have done something useful with the smart phone on the (road) network, Like map the pot holes and bloody fix em !
I'm working on this for my Raspberry pi based doorbell,
as it's bloody annoying for my phone to tell me someones
at my front door, whist i am at work 40 miles away !
Will this be re branded as "Glasgow Kiss" ?

Imagine your nexus 4, Now Imagine a room full of marketing men, all crapping all over it, just prior to the sales droid saying , Would you a bag with that sir.
No more lock in crap for me
From now on all my androids will be Google, I fed up with the crap in the middle leaving me open hacking as they can't won't spend the time wrapping their own crap ware round my phone's os, Bought a Nexus 7 and the update keep flowing, Sorry Sony (with your crap Not enough juice left in the battery to charge the phone X10 and Samsung with your please wait for (ever) upgrade. I will be buying as close to the source as possible, too many marketing men have been pissing in the bit between release and ship to customer.
As a Linux man, Im quite impressed
I use Linux, Unless you pay me then i'll use anything. I took the bate and upgraded a copy of XP to windows 8 for £24.99, all went well untill the reboot and then it totalled my machine, (well it was dual boot with grub) 3 weeks later i found my xp disk and started again 12 hours later i had taken xp thur to sp 3 and then upgraded to 8, I was sore, sore on the eyes sore on the brain and eventually i gave in an installed a 3rd party start bar. I must say they have really fixed the BSOD by simply going going to a power off state with no warning. So after a month or two i inserted a dual channel free view card and put it in the living room, Win 8 makes a great freeview box, it even records, i can actually streem and change channels via an Xbox (a bit usless as they sit next to each other ) and it won't do it to even window 7 media center... but apart for that, best free view box you can get. don't see what all the fuss is.
I would follow you, but from a distance !
RE Is this workable?
Tell you next week, At present my "PiBell" project works as a doorbell, (Playing a couple of bars of AC/DC) your door bell has a sub woofer yeah !, Pushes a message to my android phone, Tweets, then post to facebook, Hoping to add more functionality to it soon, The same pi's also a cups server and contains a complete lamp stack (You do log your door bell activations don't you) Anyway follow the door bell at @raspberypibel on twitter
Just the ticket
Now the Raspberry Pi Door bell is in production mode (tweets and all) it's time to play with the light !
Don't try to upgrade on a dual boot system, all goes well till you are about to log in and then it rewinds to XP and takes out the xp (hal.dll missing) and the Linux too, funny that, clean install of xp on the same hardware no issues at all.
That may explain why Spotify was a bit sticky this afternoon up in Scotland :)

I've been marking all their ads as sexually explicit unless they are remotely sexually explicit, then i mark em uninteresting make me laugh every time

I much Prefer Volcano Island Industries. Come see the mono rail, Shark tanks ....
Lets look to the fossil records ...
I am sure i read somewhere that they have found Jelly fish fossils on top of mountains, this would prove that at least in the past they could climb mountains, are we sure they are looking the the right places !
It worked for Microsoft !
Just look at the returns they made from vista !

No sorry Lost it .

Only with M$
Ok so you pay for an operating system, then hire the software to make it work, Man these marketing people are good, or is this M$ admitting that their OS's are not fit for purpose, and if so can we get our money back
So I thought
Until l posted a FOI request just asking how much the government expects to save on pensions by upping the pension age by a year (ie how many people who have paid into you dodgy financial scheme oh sorry TAX and NI will not collect any benefits by being unfortunate to die between the age of 65 and 66 ) Still waiting for a reply and you know that they have done the calculation before changing the law haven't they
this is what the fee west should be applauding
In a "civilized" society we should applaud this sort of thing, we should support this kind of action, why ! when the alternative is blowing you self up with explosives strapped to your chest and taking many other's who don't even know what your gripe is never mind care, should this bloke be nominated for a peace prize , as times get tough people need to express their repulsion with a system. I for one would prefer his methods of "self expression"
Androids Big problem
IS the UK carriers, I tried to purchace an Android phone from Virgin today, only to be told that the "unlimited internet" bundled with the phone would not cover the data charges needed to keep it turned on and attached to the network for a month, Hardy fair use Virgin when pinging the base station will use more that you "unlimited internet" bundle, (trading standards have been informed, untill the Accountants and Sales people for uk Carriers are taken out to the carpark and "made to see sence" Android will be limited to the few who did'nt do the research before buying
Should they not arrest themselves
With all these new laws they must have broken lots of em with that gaff.
Think of the children !
Yet another place for malware to hide can't see this ever working.
Customs and excise had enough problems in aberdeen
Customs and Excise or what ever they are called these days had enough trouble recognizing a British seaman card in Aberdeen airport ,years ago, never mind a new fangled nu labour enslavement card on trial. (i had to use a seaman card as my passport was off having visa added to it at the time) up the revolution brother and sisters Imagine theres no countries .....
Have we not seen this before !
As i recall Viz would give a sachet of instant soup to any top tip published and the best would receive a Newcastle United thermos flask, Could el reg not provide the best with a Organ transplant container (branded with El Regs logos) to hold said balls ?
