I have a brilliant plan.
When a new version comes out, add 1 to the number after the u.
How hard can it be ?
Re: End of the Road
I've found https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.janesoft.janetter.android.free&hl=en which TBH has all the bits of TweetDeck I need (custom columns, multiple accounts).
Oh, if only there was a way to switch the desktop over to 'just show the files in ~/Desktop'.
Oh wait, there is...
Wonder what else you skimped on reviewing...
Re: So, when do YOU start the posters and the street signs ?
So ? Why should only IT geeks get to keep their rights ?
Re: diurnal cycle
It's not. If you lock people in the dark, for instance, they drift to a different rotation cycle...
"how long does it take me to download my back-ups?"
Doesn't matter. Dropbox is your 'my house burnt down with my computers in it' insurance. You will have plenty to do while it spends a day or two re-downloading.
"no one except Apple can make a phone with a "slide to unlock" feature,"
What ? My Desire HD has that.
Same thing everyone using ColdFusion (Adobe, Railo or someother vendors version) - getting stuff done with as little fuss as possible. Think Perl for people who shave :-)
Re: DRM Doesn't work
What DRM ? get_iplayer works fine. On a Raspberry Pi I might add.
Re: Mad MAY'S Knickers in a twist
Well, no, because it's a US company, so bound by PATRIOT etc. - no matter where the servers are.
Remember how HushMail gave out not-really-encrypting versions of it's code to some people after the US asked them to ? That.
Re: Gloss kills it
Small screen, lack of resolution kill it.
Just get any other Dell - it'll be fine as they required all their components to upstream Linux drivers...
I do recall a conviction for adding or removing a '.' or was it a '..' ?
"incorporated virtual machine detection"
They've solved the red pill / blue pill issue? Really ? *That* would be news...
Woa. No NSFW warning ?
Re: dupe files are where the moneyz are
DropBox used to do that (hash the local content, send the hash, if it matches the file is assumed to be 'yours' and copied from someone else.
They had to stop once people realised how to fake the API calls, b/c it allowed unlimited copying of, well, anything...
Everyone's surname becomes a hash of their DoB and street address ? Can't see how that will work when people move... plus DoB and (even vague) street address is probably still enough to identify someone...
Maybe if they hadn't pulled TweetDeck no one would be annoyed enough to want to patch the Twitter keys into it...
Oh ho ho ho - nice joke !
Why do you need to make a whole for it ? NAT-Punching works well for Skype etc., even if your gateway doesn't talk uPnP.
Do aliens use morse ?
Re: Installer attempts to load ASK crapware
You realise GNU/Linux is entirely made up of 3rd party application right ?
Re: Better concept follows...
You've read Pirate Cinema then ?
In what way is ColdFusion in decline ? http://blogs.coldfusion.com/post.cfm/product-roadmap-for-coldfusion
And don't get me started on what the Railo Foundation means for a FOSS implementation of the language, owned by JBoss : http://www.opencfmlfoundation.org/projects/railo/
Re: Android didn't get to number one by people not standing it
"If Nokia make Android smartphones they become yet another Android vendor with nothing really that differentiates them from HTC, Samsung, LG, etc. At least with Windows Phone 8 they have some different OS to offer..."
They had that with MeeGo before they set fire to several years work and good will...
Re: Angling to get another Brit into a US Court?
Not to be a shrill, but their wireless printer/scanner has excellent Linux support as well as fairly good quality and ongoing costs- check the review on El Reg earlier in the year.
Re: Insanity of software patents
I assure you it is just maths. How do you think computers work ? Maybe you want to reread "On Computable Numbers" ?
no one will notice the speed change. bet ya.
NO, not 'because it was an easy button press', because it was an easy mistake to make - hitting the wrong link on a page or mobile app happens a lot...
Will "I went for delete, but hit retweet" be a defence ?
Works fine for me in FireFox...
Wow, go directly to jail for pressing the wrong link on a web site ? Charming ...
And this is why services should allow '+' on the left hand side of the '@' ... then even if you don't want to use auto-tagging or filtering, at least you can make the address unique to the service. Handy if they leak your data too...
Sounds like you want to join the Open Rights Group then, rather than just blathering here then...
Re: Even without games
But a Pi is cheaper for that, and works just as well running RaspBMC
Aye. The Dell *UK* site is obviously too stupid to only offer me buyable things.
if you get such a tiny screen as on the Zen, then yes, it will be at a premium !
14.0” HD+ (1600x900) Anti-Glare LED-backlight - "coming in February"
Oh my yes.
More interestingly, they list Ubuntu as a supported operating system !
Re: Do we have any intelligent politicians?
"Microsoft don't make any PCs "
*didn't* - or did you miss the Surface Laptop thing ?
Because 90% of motherboards only contain the MS key. So you have to use the MS key to sign the Penguin boot loader. Which rather defeats the point of secure boot...
On the same day as : http://it.slashdot.org/story/12/10/12/1310224/lone-packet-crashes-telco-networks?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Slashdot%2Fslashdot+%28Slashdot%29
I don't believe in coincidence...
Just because you live in somewhere with green doesn't mean you can't. Get 12meg by 112k ADSL2 connection from Zen south of Stockport :-)
They already attacked one to test the gun out.
