I'd rather have it honest up front rather then...
...promising flowers and then dropping a pile of shit on you after.
On side effects
Until it is proven these things don't have any side effects on second hand vapers I'd prefer they are relegated to the same spot as normal cigs.
And from my personal experience with someone in the office trying to use the e-cig a couple of times I felt poorly after that. So it certainly isn't just water vapour. There is enough in there that can cause issues in the short term.
I'm not opposed to letting people enjoy what they want. I'm just opposed to having it affect others or myself.
I'm considering the connector from here...
My main concern is getting the sound into the HiFi... then if I want I could expand this to other rooms with the 350 eur sets.
Re: Pretty much what I do
So don't bother them with thundebird but give them some fancy web interface like roundcube.
Why wait for the next-gen...
...start playing on current gen and then upgrade for the 10 monetary units once you get the next gen device. That way you get to have fun all along.
...who has been running his own email, http, etc... services for years. I can say it's not that hard but it does take effort for initial setup and for major upgrades.
The problem is getting less tech savvy people using anything even when provided with easy to use web interfaces etc... It's just not "insert provider here".
I prefer manual sharpening
But then I tend to use japanese style knives. I also clean them after use not put into a dishwasher. Only really need to resharpen every 6 months or so. But then my kitchen probably has more blades than any other utensils.
Alarms... what are those
I mostly given up on alarms... I can have 6-8-10 etc... many alarms all set to max loundness and they'll work for the first week or so... then... I'll just sleep through them...
Good thing cats are around...
You could try Python
Instead of .NET/Java/etc... could try with a Python backend/framework. Then use whatever DB you want that is supported(either noSQL or SQL evaluate what works for you). And I agree HTML 5 for the web frontends if any and possibly QT and WFP(since I don't believe QT is supported on the new interface yet) for any other clients.
Other than a few random mishapes always get through this fast localy. They are made by IBM running windows xp and some form of db2 at the backend. Though usually they seem to snif either the employees or IT people(of any sort) and will stubbornly get annoyed at us.
But more often than not they have just worked.
Don't forget you have alpine as well - which unlike pine is still being actively developed. And frankly I know more people using mutt and alpine than I know people using thunderbird or even shudder outlook.
Know enough people that use elinks/w3m/lynx/links etc... to browse the web as well.
/me grabs the popcorn
Can we get more of this... so much free entertainment.
Re: Waterproofing is pretty cool though
You left out the joke alert icon ;)
Hmmm. OK around here I get 1 day a year extra vacation for working with the bloody things. But that's that(and no not in public sector. But one day EVERY 2 months... just insane.
Re: Who is ready to pay
I guess you missed all the humble bundles where the linux part of the buyers consistently pay more than their windows and mac counterparts. Believe it or not we don't use Linux because it's free... we use it because it's better for what we need it for.
As for changing things yeah. Will see what will come of it. I'd certainly buy a steambox if they offered one. But I'm not in the mood(and haven't been in the mood for years) to manage any decently speced box for gaming.
Most of my hardware is based around needing the minimal to get the job done.
How many of those Washington(I'm assuming state of washington not D.C.) jurrors were members of MS employed families or in some way related?
Re: wonder what kind of systems
I agree with you on that. I don't care what's in the users data. For me it's data that just needs to be maintained there and that's that.
And it's still younger than Slackware
Still nothing here...
2 more hours and still nothing. But I generally get thank yous over the year so I'm not to let down about it.
Add inventor of the cloud to his list then as well
Considering he was running the first one ever with people using it as a service.
So a no-sale from me
I don't want more of the shoddpy x86 architercure... I want LESS of it.
Re: I wonder when we will all be forced to suffer the New Compose clusterfuck ?
You mean teh current "you can compose multiple messages at once in an annoying JS window" isn't enough for you?
There are better alternatives but sometimes you are stuck with stuff.
I have a few watches and clocks around(I like time tracking) but frankly unless I have some specific reason for it I won't wear a watch with me and haven't worn one in years.
I have all the time in the world for what I usually need to do and don't need to be tied down to when something and some such needs to be done.
Ahh the joys
And I get this a lot from people. But I've sent you this email on that and that day.
Mostly a lot of my mails get looked over for some reason. I guess it's my inivisible personality shinning through.
I still have my...
Nokia N900 running Maemo 5 and still fine with it. Do plan to get that Nokia dumbphone that will last 30+ days on a single charge in autumn.
I don't like either Android either iOS either Windows Phone for a mobile phone and I played with most of them one way or another.
I don't mind Android for a tablet and possibly hooking in a MiFi style device somewhere along the way to get 3G networking with it. But beyond that if it can recieve/make calls and do SMS I'll be happy with a dumbphone. The only SMART thing I expect from my phone is timed profiles... go to silent at this hour during these days and so on... Beyond that I don't need any other smarts.
Given that Sony has had ePub support after their first reader not a prob. And most devices seem to go to mass storage as well when plugged in(all this info is available with a quick search).
I don't own one since I went with the Jinke Hanlin V3 running openinkpot myself. But if this 13" beasty comes out I'm definitely interested in getting it just for reading through various pages of install/config/etc... docs I usually need to.
Re: I "Pirate" what I have already paid for - I bet most "Pirates" are like me
I must say I'm the same. I pay for a cable subscription and download stuff I get there(tv shows that can take a while to show up here). As for music I'll buy a CD when I find a place that has it or I'll get the legaly free stuff(ocremix, jamendo) or even buy from some places that I know won't force anything down my throat(bandcamp, humble bundle, music bundle, similar).
Games I buy(PS3, 3DS, Linux stuff(almost all the humble bundles so far, FTL, KSP, GameDevTycoon)).
Anime as well but the lack of having some dedicated anime chans on my cable subscription is annoying. And no don't really plan on buying BOX sets much of anything simply because once I watch it I delete it.
One day they'll figure out a system where I can declare what I watch and pay a subscription but will be able to download wherever I want how I want it(i.e. grabbing the latest fansub of the latest anime but at the same declaring I got this and you get a bit of my money for it). And no Hulu and similar(region locked) ideas don't count.
All the self important people who think their "content" is worth something will be inaccessible by most of the greater unwashed. Sounds like a good deal to me.
Hmm we can get these in slovenia
But we would be charged extra to get them and all the fancy crap they would provide... I'm happy with a kill-a-watt type devices for when I'm interested in what's burning leccy. They have enough issue with power metters reporting phantom power anyway around here.
Well I can actually do
proper work on a tablet even without a physical keyboard. But then all I really need is vim, ssh and remote desktop and I have all of that and more.
I have plain vim and ssh via kbox terminal but one could use zshaolin(no connectbot is awful). I have touchvim if I really want to and there's a very very very very excelent remote desktop app accesstogo. Yes I can even edit documents, spreadsheets and view pdfs using the preinstalled polaris office. But frankly I rarely need them.
Yes still on the lookout for a keyboard for it. Can't really decide on one.
So many crap cans around now-a-days. Even the good brands aren't all the same. I have a set of portable over the ear Sennheiser and out of the two I was making my choice between them and tried them both I got the ones that don't boost bass. So music sounds ok. I don't expect hi-fi quality from headphones but I do expect to be able to hear the finer details of music. And with the type of music I listen to this shows. Hda these things for a few years now and am really happy with them for when I do listen with them.
Europeans can use that store? Last I checked it complained that I don't have a valid location and payment method... for a free app.
Same in Slovenia...
We either file online into a nice handy Tax Agency form and do it that way or even better. We just get what the agency things we owe it and if we agree do nothing else file a different return.
I'm glad this got instated like a year or so before I started working so I don't need to do anything really.
Re: Where's the value?
You are aware that the GBP, USD or any other currency aren't tied to anything tangible as well? They are fiat currencies. They have no intrinsic value at all. Atleast a bitcoin has the value of the leccy needed to generate it.
Re: Follow the money?
Erm... they do here. They pay yearly road tax along with MOT just like everyone else.
I still pay for cable simply on the bassis that even if I get the shows from torrent they still deserve to get a cut of the licensing. Basically I just timeshift it using a different method.
For the driver to actually...
respond this needs to flash up in a HUD else any other distractions could just cause more issues. This is why marketing should not be allowed here. What would be nice is a minimap style radar view of your surroundings. That way you can always tell where everyone else is.
It has potential but yeah privacy implications are there as well.
And fail at reading the actual article.
Got myself a couple of Das Keyboard ultimate last year. Had to RMA one since apparently there was something wrong with it and gave up the ghost half a year later. Well it was swapped and I'm happily typing on the new thing. As for sound. I use one at home and one at work and nobody has yet complained about the noise levels and I do a lot of typing. But it helps people know if I'm in the office since they can hear me type hehe.
As one of the many glasses wearers I quite like my glasses and wouldn't trade them in for contacts. What I would like is to have an AR and a camera recording stuff through it. But WITHOUT some online service hooked into it.
just need some games and I know what I'm saving my coins for.
Re: All very well.
I've been using GNU+Linux(Yes one of those) exclusively since 2004. I didn't bother converting friends. I showed them, explained them and then out of the blue a friend of mine switched completly to Linux on his own. With me doing nothing else to persuade him. I don't evnagelize the system. I show what it can do. I show what Open source/Free software can do. Most people in my cicrles run atleast some open source/free software apps even if it is on windows. And they get curious about the rest and try that. Some like it enough to have a permanent dual boot others try it and find it's not for them and some stick with it.
Re: Doesnt anyone do any bloody testing anymore?
We are the testers. Who would be better at testing it than the people that use the site primarily?
Re: Oliver Twist
Same. Though replace the scan part with getting it through alternate channels.
The issue with PS3 games and not doing 1080p is in the publishers being payed off by microsoft to not allow higher than 720p because you know... xbox360 just doesn't do it. Or publishers basically going we want everyone to have the same experience which means lowest common denominator which is the xbox360 again.
I have quite a few titles on the PS3 that do 1080p just fine. Most are sony first party studios some are multi platform.
I do hope they'll keep the ds3 nice and clean as it is... It's a great controller and have no issues with it even with my large hands.
Re: Being from Africa...
Being from Europe - Slovenia I also import the games from the UK... I save ~15eur with shipping included on new titles I preorder compared to local rip-off prices of 60eur+their own fat margins on top(20eur or more).
You sir win many Internets
Re: What about her Passport
You only need a valid ID document. A passport is not required.
