Re: Kinect isn't the important bit here...
I ended up borrowing a Kinect for a few days and got it hooked up with Pd (open source Max/MSP) via a little OSC magic in no time - there are a couple of good libraries available.
This dude sure looks impressive on stage, but it looks like this piece has been basically pre-determined, sequenced really, with the role of the gestures changing as the piece trundles on. Pushing through a few instructions via MIDI on demand, when one has already decided it's going to be, say, a block of A minor on diapason, principal and 2', is trivial.
Meh. Move along.
I had a mere 220k emails dating back to 2004 on my GMail account whereupon about a year and a half ago, having suffered a day-long outage, I eventually jumped the bandwagon and started using my own server instead.
Ironically I'd been running a mail hosting company for a couple of years by then but hadn't trusted myself with it for my own mails. Haven't looked back since.
Going back to the joy of deleting emails is undescribable - I pity those stuck in swamps of useless emails, kept 'in case they're ever needed' - pah.
As to why I ever thought not deleting my emails would be a good idea, I don't know.
Read before you click
Yes, there's the option to 'Leave messages on the server' - but learn to read.
However as Ken rightly said, there's no easy way of restoring the mails if deleted from the server, unless you've got some way of untar'ing your maildir mails (*having converted them from Thunderbird's native implementation of mbox, for example) straight onto your mail root.
Visible? Yes, that they are.
Consider if two APs have the same SSID (happens fequently) - computer's got to know which one it's communicating with, right? :)
And as for the United Faildom?
Forgive me for sounding ignorant - but does this mean it is already the case in the UK that they've built up a DB of the WiFi MAC codes as they've been trundling around?
I wouldn't, of course, be in the least surprised. Though I'll be a-shooting them a letter if it's indeed the case.
