Re: Same old, same old...
we use a QR code to allow quick access to our company wifi - scan the code on your device and voila - connected.
There are some other uses - like embeded vcards on the back of you buisness cards to allow quick digitisation of the contacts details.
Re: Wow - those serial numbers are tough to guess
website says serial is wrong when I try to submit the form, despite the ajax code detecting the serial I enter as being a eeppad / nexus 7 and propulating some of the form for me.
A bit of searching suggest the 16 digit hexadecimal code from the tablet menus is a CSSN, not a SSN which is required by ASUS and is on the sticker on the box.
I tried the CSN and it worked first time. The first 6 characters are letters - the 0 and O on the font used is very difficult to see a difference
No need to root the nexus 7 for flash
a quick search will give you the xda-developers thread where you sideload flash 188.8.131.52 which will work with firefox beta on the market or for a less buggy experience sideload Dolphin 8.5.1
Voila - iPlayer on the nexus 7.
Re: trust no one
mines the one with an hourly cron job script;
ccrypt -eRs ~/Dropbox/encrypted -K mysecretlongpassphrase1
to encrypt one folder of my dropbox stuff - safe in the knowledge that if I forget to re-encrypt after working on it the system sorts it out for my next hour
Re: Don't do it!!!
to counter this - the screen on my wildfire S stop responding to touch. A call to customer support went through a soft, then hard reset, then a UPS collection from my work and delivery of the fixed phone 4 days later to my home.
One of the best customer service departments I've ever dealt with.
assuming it has the same density as Earth? If it's 13.8 time less dense then the gravitational pull would be the same?
50% migration from Ubuntu to Mint here
my son likes Mint11 over Lucid due to the default colors - fine as reasons go if you are 11yo. My daughter prefers gnome3 so is on ubuntu 11.11 but will be the first to switch to Mint12 as the house guinea pig. My netbook will get Mint12 shortly after but desktop is staying at Lucid until LTS runs out.
cheap chinese android fondleslab for me
and nice HTC android phone
The phone does everything I need on the go and the FS does the same when I'm not - either at home trying to occupy myself with some video off the NAS drive whilst trying to avoid Eastenders/Corry/Farm thing that t'wife has on in the background or at uni when I need a light device for note taking in the cloud.
There are definitely weirdos out there that not only have use for a phone and FS but also choose not to buy fruit flavoured versions
my kids like unity....
and I think that says it all. I have unity on my small screened netbook and it fits a purpose. my desktop is gnome 2.
when my 10 and 11 year old kids saw unity they nagged me until i gave in to put it on each of their laptops and desktops - it's an interface they are used to coming from playing on their bliddy phones all the time and they like it. They don't need to be particularly productive.
horses for courses i suppose.
