Well played, professor! Well Played indeed!
To Richard Chirgwin, for working in the link to the Smithsonian article. I just spent a very fruitful 25 mins on the intertubes.
App 2 SD does not offer a choice when clearing the cache. It just sweeps away the entire cache. App Cache Cleaner actually provides a list of apps using the cache and you can pick and choose which apps' cache should be cleared. Slightly better functionality, in my opinion.
I discovered Llama when I was looking for a Profile Manager to replicate the profiles I had on my Nokia E61i. Turned out to be quite a successful discovery, at least for me. I use Llama for managing my Bluetooth and WiFi when I am at home and office. Works like a charm.
Of course, it struggles when I am in a different city and it is daytime. But it could just be that I am a lousy teacher.
for your inputs on Serviio. Installed it on the Home PC yesterday (Windows XP) and my LG TV found it in a jiffy. Everything running smoothly now.
Nokia, Samsung and other major manufacturers have several dual SIM models available in India. As for no-name chinese ones, the models available here go upto 4 (four) SIMs. You probably have been shopping in the wrong markets.
HOWTO Reinstall all of your current packages if you do a fresh Ubuntu install
Please also ensure the point made by pepemosca in post #13 on Page 2:
I might add that you need to check on the bottom: "Save full state, not only changes"
Well played, Sir. Well played!
For non-fillable PDFs there are several free solutions available (NitroPDF is one example) that allow you to add text boxes to any PDF. You can even save the PDF with your data in it.
And then there's the biggest Indian conglomerate of Reliance - unfortunately split into two conglomerates by the brothers. They too make nearly everything, except cars and other vehicles.
The situation is similar to continentatl Europe in that diesel is markedly cheaper than petrol. At one point in the past, diesel was priced at 50% of petrol.
Milk is cheaper than petrol, but not as much compared to diesel.
In India we already run a lot of our cars and buses on LPG / CNG. The infrastructure for that is available, at least in our cities. Makes for much cleaner air as compared to petrol / diesel engines. And much cheaper than petrol.
Oh! And you don't have to modify the engine to make it run on LPG / CNG.
"passing handfuls of used notes to match-fixers"
I always thought a white envelope handed over in the parking lot was the standard procedure?
and at the same time too!
Less laptops, very little spread of the internet, thus less time spent cooking your spuds.
Oh yes, that also means more time spent doing the right things!
This is precisely what India needs. More laptops!
Got to get that 1 billion under control. Less babies. Yes!
Sorry. Time for my medication, I think.
Just offering a thought that Kabbaddi is actually quite popular in India as well. Calling it a Pakistani sport would be bracketing it too narrowly.
On the other hand, the image of middle-aged men playing kabbaddi made me run for my mind-bleach.
I, for one, welcome our kabbaddi playing, chairman hailing, ITU permanent representative overlords.
Yes, very specific target audience, size of one billion only.
I, for one, welcome our Bollywood watching, industry and country judging overlords.
to gargle at the fountain of entertainment, one must drink deeply. That would cause one to lose all objectivity and start enjoying the happenings on screen.
You actually boil an egg? I buy mine that way.
Next you would be asking if we can make an omelet?
He could take the bus, or even the train.
India has aeroplanes too, just in case you hadn't noticed.
That line really made my Friday morning.
to read this with a wooden face!
welcome our emergency shortlited varified problem stupidiously retrieving overlords!
When stuff is turned up to 11.
Pity about the smoke though.
Indian civil servants are not savvy enough to leave USB keys / laptops on trains. Hence all this effort to infiltrate networks.
I, for one, welcome our Network Infiltrating, espionaging, shadowy overlords.
Good Work. I especially liked the computer generated proofs!
As TeeCee said, be careful what you joke about.
I, for one, welcome our common editorial producing, "new authoritarian", copy tailoring software overlords.
Enjoying El Reg's view on 1st April.
"Tinfoilclad doom prophets around the world - fearing some kind of planet-imploding black hole mishap, planetary soupening or custardisation event etc - no doubt found it a trouser-moistening moment"
All of this goodness, packed into a single sentence.
Give this man a beer, or two!
I think the word you are looking for is numb-arse!
"...that you can crack on an abacus"
You Sir, owe me a new abacus!
Imagine the same scenario at some highway stop in India.
You ask for directions to the toilet and the desk (?) points you to the wide open fields behind. What do you lock? How do you protect?
Welcome our electron-wielding, super-hot car driving nano-memory overlords.
The current one? Or the one mentioned last month:
73% of Brits too shagged for a shag (10 August 2009)
What this means that only 27% of Brits are shagging each other and that amounts to 2.8m? Serious chances of in-breeding there.
In India, Bourbon is a chocolate cream biscuit marketed by Britannia. Ties in very nicely with this article.
OTOH, I do agree with Phil Underwood. Never too early to start on the real bourbon.
"We need to find a better transportation energy platform...one that does not depend on magic liquids bubbling up from the bottom of our oceans and spews the carbon so neatly stored in the ground back into the atmosphere."
Thus, we conclude that we now have a magical way of obtaining electricity for charging those swapped out batteries that does not depend on magical carbon storing liquids or solids. Or without even inundating vast tracts of land under water.
Certainly, this would clean up the air in the cities. But I disagree with the founder's sentiment there.
India's national ID database running on Windows servers?
Nothing could possibly go wrong there!
Any chance of this getting outsourced, then?
Like, I mean, to India or China? Very little duff man juice over here.
For the love of all that is holy!
Please nuke the site from orbit. That's the only way to be sure.
Pub time already.
Like that! That is so true.
The number of people without any valid identification in India is truly astonishing.
No birth certificate. No schooling, thus no records. No recollection of date of birth, or even of place of birth.
Plus, the issue of having identical names - how do you tell one Babulal from another?
Sadly, inflation has caught up with this part of the world as well. A handful of rupees no longer provides any relief.
From what I read on this site about your former Home Secretary, we might end up sending her to our neighbouring country. Much better for everybody.
I, for one, welcome our bureaucratic, ID card bearing overlords.
the Apple fanbois say that the iPod is hot!
But I had no idea it was this hot.
Don't need my coat. 'Tis warm enough in India - and raining.
Errr, in this case, considering she's 45, I think we should pass.
But the logo does not seem to match any ancient symbols for truth.
And how is this different than Sarah Palin or Jack Straw having their accounts compromised? Wouldn't that mean that Americans and British people are also not very secure?
I would think that this makes a point about the kind of people we get as politicians all over the world.
A pea sized piece of lead, traveling at about the speed of sound, leaves people dead.
And this one, traveling at 30,000 mph, leaves only a nasty gash?
Or did I miss something?
Totally agree with you. All the fuss seems to be from way across the seven seas.
Have not heard any protests here in India. In fact, we have ads for the game on kids' channels. And yes, from what I have seen in the ads, the game certainly could do with a lot of improvement. Looks like a game for kids, by kids. Expected much more from Sony.
I could understand almost the whole of his post.
Or maybe I need to adjust my dosage.
welcome our protuberance encumbered overlordesses!

Has a nice ring to it.
