For the sake of non-Australian readers, surely the opening paragraph should be prefixed with:
"The Australian telecoms giant ..."
Ask yourself, Sir El Reg Australian Editor, what percentage of your readership would have a clue who Telstra are or why they should / should not give a toss about them?
Or one browser with multiple profiles
firefox -ProfileManager -no-remote
It's definitely Panasonic Vieracast, not Samsung. The URLs in the linked-to article make this a certainty.
Beer, coz it's now Friday evening.
Do you mean the AC at 2259hrs above your post or below it?

tar preserves metadata by default...
Whether the Samba client can do a good enough job of preserving permissions when talking to a Windows host is perhaps another matter...
Downvoted because free software is never hard to get your hands on.

Java? Applet? Winamp?

Can't stand Windo$e and kudos to those experimenting with dual boot. Just remember to blow away the NTFS partition when you're finished ;-)
However I do remember back in the day I used %TEMP% to locate the temp directory. That would simplify the instructions on page #1 somewhat, don't you think El Reg?
Will Wright must be clutching at straws if that's the latest addition to the series.
But I guess it still sounds more enjoyable than Farmville. Though in all likelihood most of the game would be spent controlling your Sim who is playing Farmville on Telstra time...
5%?! More like 50!
According to digital spy Freeview HD coverage has reached 50%:
I guess you guessed wrong :-)
