It works just fine for me in Opera 12.15 for Debian 7.0. And this is my "give google as few permissions as possible" browser!
If it was anybody but google, they'd sell me the glasses and keep the fuck out of my brain (maybe; can't be too sure anymore). Because it's google, they're going to charge me somewhere between $100-$500 for the hardware, tie what I'm looking at to the google+ account I'm obliged to have at work, and then pump ads I don't want straight into my eyeballs. No thanks.
Re: Smut alert!
That domain is in use, and totally SFW. I'll leave the contents to someone brave enough to load it up :)
Re: Web fads and video games
My introduction to The Designer's Republic was the cover of Pop Will Eat Itself's "This Is The Day..." album, so when I saw that they also did some work on Wipeout I had to get it.
If something isn't done about the amount of trolling on teh intertubes I'm going to blow this website sky high!
You make it sound like a King's Quest.
Re: Jobs deserved an actor
Adam Sandler as Jobs, Seth Rogan as Wozniak. Brilliant!
Re: The Bridge on the River Kwai
LoA is the wrong aspect ratio for this TV. Although I would hope if you
're stupid enough have refined enough taste to purchase one of these TVs, you would appreciate the letterboxing on such a title.
Damn you, I had forgotten about that program. I bought an ST just to be able to run it. My favorite sequencer ever, and I'm still pretty upset that my basement studio decided to let in all that water the weekend I was out of town :(
Infogrames bought them a number of years ago and took on the name. Nolan Bushnell, on the other hand, has slightly more money than god after starting and selling off both Atari and Chuck E. Cheese. He may not be involved in video games anymore, but he's got a bit more clout than whoever this Pete Foster guy is does.
Re: Why not...
I would pay good money to see Star Wars VII with (current) Carrie Fisher in that metal bikini.
So you're throwing poor Dave under the bus(t), eh?
Re: I'll switch to OSX
And have the Beatles record an album to go along with it.
I'd suggest calling it Revolver Ocelot.

Did you all really miss the trollface?
Re: Car crash?
"I firmly believe Microsoft have something that could really shake things up and give us a viable alternative to Android/Apple."
What makes you think that? 0% of the software you've already bought will work on this device, *and* it's as expensive as the tablet that everyone wants anyway -- I mean, I gave up on Apple when they killed the Newton; I don't think I've ever heard anyone expressing an interest in a non-Apple tablet (except you, just now). If you're starting all over buying stuff for it anyway, are you just going with the devil you know?
If you're one of the (let's be generous) 1.5 million people living in one tiny area of the USA, and you ask your wireless provider, they'll let you connect your phone to their network. I don't think that makes *anything* said about their network outdated.
1) Sell headquarters to non-finanacially-linked subsidiary
2) Charge 1 BEELION DOLLARS/mo rent
3) Pay rent in IOUs
Nokia proper ends up paying nothing, subsidiary has ridiculous income rolling in, everyone wins.
An answer to the Jesus Fish
Saw this on a car in town the other day:
I prefer my own car with as few stick-on bits as possible, but I Approve.
You keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means.
I'd hate to be the backup guy, having to swap out 2cm^2 disks that hold 40MB a piece.
I'm more impressed that you get what you pay for than anything else.

"A Megadrive & SNES in the same box with hundreds of Roms available on line means there's already a massive back catalogue albeit of questionable legality."
There's nothing questionable about the legality of most of those ROMs on the internet.
"First, the old entry server configuration – which had only 256MB of virtual memory and 10GB of disk and which cost 1.5 cents per hour – has joined the choir eternal. Engates says that it didn't run Windows and didn't really have enough oomph to run Linux very well, either. The new low point is a 512MB virtual server with 20GB of disk, which has had a price cut from 3 cents per hour down to 2.2 cents per hour (that's a 27 per cent price cut)."
No, that's the entry level server getting a 50% price hike.
Re: Tweets provide better comentary...
"Worst of all is the Australian coverage, with consists of the presenters masturbating furiously when an Australian wins a medal.
If no one is winning a medal, they cut back to past Olympics of the same event, where they did win a medal, and start jacking it all over again"
Are they *cute* presenters?
Remember, my fellow sysadmins, "Non ex transverso sed deorsum"
Looking forward to the shoops
Oh the Photoshop potential of Balmer with a box on his head.
Re: I wonder...
Did you see that roadmap? Power8 will obviously be running Commodore64 BASIC.
Re: Boot Loader Locking
"There is nothing to stop you going into the UEFI and turning off secure boot. MS have only said that it can't be turned off for ARM devices."
There is nothing to stop you going into the UEFI and turning off secure boot. MS have only said you can't go into the UEFI and turn off secure boot.
"There isn't a person in the world who does any *REAL* work that can get by with nothing but a phone or ipad."
Ah, but there are many people for whom the phone/pad does as much computing as they need.
Re: A cabinet full of 2TB drives is a petabyte.
1) Digitize the holograms
2) Store the digitized copies on hard drives
3) there's no step three!
I guess it doesn't matter I missed out on the Ultrabooks
I was really holding out for a Samsung Series 9 but that wasn't all the computer I needed anyway.
I (my employer, anyway) ended up buying an Asus N53SV last November. quad-core i7 2630QM@2GHz, 16GB RAM, 1920x1080 15.6" display. I frequently have six or seven VMs running under VirtualBox and everything runs fine.
Sure, it's almost 10lbs, and the optimus graphics aren't accelerated under Linux, but it's the right machine for me. If I want to game, well, that's what the Windows partition is for :)
Backups to RAID0=Heartbreak
For the people who need to buy one of these devices because they're "technically illiterate" (the *vast majority* of computer users are in this group, guys), suggesting they back up to a device running in RAID0 is asking for trouble. A failure of either drive means they lose all their data! You're much better off with RAID1 and half the usable space than RAID0.
How is this different from Google?
My own personal experience:
Downloading legitimate KDE addons from MU: yep
Downloading pirated apps from MU: yep
Now for the part I usually hate ("butbutbut *they're doing something worse!*"):
Google has a copy of every page they've ever seen, and they'll hand it over to anyone who asks for it. If you want that behavior to stop, all you have to do, as the owner of the data in question, is tell them you don't want that particular page cached anymore (find it on their site, and click the DMCA link). Just like MU.
HOW DOES THIS MAKE ANY SENSE????
Ads turn my stomach
but they pay for a lot of Pepto(r)(TM)(visit us at fuckyeahpeptobismol.tumblr.com!) so it's all okay, then.
Internet service is like water/gas/electric etc.
Your water service doesn't advertise up to 600 gallons/s..
Your gas service doesn't sell based on rate, either. Neither does the electric company.
No other service sells their product based on (up to! ha) how much of it they'll shove down your pipe at once. They all charge based on how much the service is used. If ISPs did that as well, that would probably get rid of most of the piracy they claim is causing so much stress on their poor overworked infrastructure.
Of course, it's all bullshit and they wouldn't dare, because they're probably making money hand-over-fist on people paying for connection speeds they not only aren't getting, but wouldn't actually use anyway.
Could be worse...
You could have paid for the PSP version.
Re: Any Potential Boost Remains to be Seen
"Google and other search engines aim to deliver the most relevant query results..."
...that produce top $ for Google. Always remember that. Even you, Domain Name Solution Guy -- http://www.fairwindspartners.com/.
There's nothing wrong with that, but remember Google is an ad broker (AKA professional sophist) that started out as a really good search engine, and is still pretending to be one.
Surely it's not the consumer's fault
The publishers have been playing both sides of the fence forever. "We're selling you a license to play this game" versus "We're selling you a disc full of bits arranged a certain way" (ignore the fact that I'm buying a game and I will play it as I damn well please) and using whichever argument makes them the most money at the moment ("we'll sell you another license at $retail price" vs. "we'll sell you another disc full of bits at $retail price")
The way I see it, the first video game system developer that makes a standard, licensable spec for games machines (e.g., the controllers plug in *here* and the graphics system is *this* and the media is formatted *this way*, etc., 3do was the last spec produced like this) wins. The PC is the closest we have right now and it's a clusterfuck as to whether or not any particular game works on any given machine.
I just hope the "Steambox" rumors are true. Valve are the one company I trust at this point to produce a non-fucked spec for something like this.
Are you one of the lucky few for whom the official xbmc android remote doesn't have the sticky buttons? Or are you using some other remote?
No, really, I have XBMC and an Android, I'd really like to know. Of course, I'd *really* like for my DirecTV HR24/500 to be able to Media Play from mediatomb, but I haven't quite figured it out yet.
