Restrictions to protect wild life
You can walk up along the rails and on to the summit - no problem.
But that same person making half way up by the train can't :-/
Also, that rule doesn't allow paragliders and hanggliders use the train to get up and take off from the top station. And these guys won't even touch the nature after they take off.
What's that in pixels? Don't puzzle us with buzzwords, puh-leeeeaseee!
What is that Outlook.com anyway?
is anybody using *that*?
No more Seagate for me
Being used to decent drives, I haven't RAIDed the family photo collection, and now it's 0xDEAD
Now WD NAS keeps everything, but it's a little too late :-/
Though that's what they do to a percentage of passengers flying westbound across the Atlantic.
Happened to me in the UK.
Looks like nothing to do with France, it's the US that requests this measure.

Wish my N5 stayed at 4.4.4
- new bug in Canvas text rendering
- Contacts/People thing is trying to be too clever and does things I wish it didn't - recents/favourites/etc
- Phone calls sometimes don't light up the screen, requiring you to unlock it with your method of choice before you can answer the call
I can live with the updated gmail client, that's not a problem
Totally against kiddie porn, but...
Paedophobia in the UK has gone way to far, in my opinion. People get scared of the most innocent things - like taking someone else's child in the car out of rain, unless a parent/guardian has authorised it. In writing. And you must have TheDisclosure. Or going round every parent in an archery club, asking consent for taking photos of targets in a building where children are present. Fook sake people, stop weing wackos, not everyone is a paedo.
Speaking of paedos, wasn't a paediatrician killed by an angry mob in Wales for being a paedo... atrician?
IMO govt needs a scary spaghetti monster to channel your hates and worries away from itself and it's own actions, so paedos are a handy target. Not saying they are unreal or forgivable, but they certainly get too much attention, and public agitated by hysterical media bends the rules of living way out of proportion.
if 43% of software is pirated, and the other half(?) is freeware/GNU/Linux/Mac, WTF do the BSA sponsors sell to pay for their surveys?
...sent for a M$-free machine, as always ;o)
Re: Powershell Terminals
Oooh, didn't realise the author was trying to use a shell without an OS, just in a game launcher
Raise the stakes, lift the 60-day limit - and people will start building drones with an IR cam to track the suspect from laser beam detection until reaching proximity, and a regular flash-equipped cam to take the the bastards' picture. And these would obviously fly below 200', and well clear of runway extended centerline.
you should have seen my un-stabilized hanggliding helmet-cam at 30x speed - sickening!
Lack of native BB apps
is probably their own fault entirely.
Tried to register as a dev on their website, so I could port and upload the apps I have written for Android.
So many personal questions, that after umpteen screens and 2 days I just gave up and developed a bit of paranoia for a month.
Shame, as it's a lovely OS and a joy to develop on.
Using our tax to buy windows?
Serves them right...

So, when do we get a decent ARM-based linux laptop with a usable size screen?
Samsung chromebook could be close, but resolution isn't great, and neither is native linux support...
...suffered an Atom-based netbook for a while - oh joy...
Want a quad core 1.7 GHz ARM with 4G RAM and 1600x1080 screen please!
It's been GPL for years, and ended up in a bunch of fantastic OSes. Where's doom and gloom?
ARM's fine, now it needs a full OS
I'd choose quad-core ARM over any Atom flavour - better performance per watts or dollars.
It's easy to build software or install it from repos, unless one wants to download some funny binary stuff.
But the thing should have GCC toolchain installed, mature Linux distro with all bits and bobs, and enough RAM/HDD space to make use of that all!
Re: burning a coaster while running Quake3
Baby Gates runs up to Bill:
- Daddy, daddy, what's multitasking?
- Hold on a minute dear, I'll show you once the floppy has finished formatting
OMG not again
Used to waste a hundred hours each month on CStrike - coz Steam worked in WINE. And CStrike ran better than on everybody else's windows ;)
Then Steam gradually evolved to work sh!te in WINE, and I eventually got free! No sleep deprivation, no spinal problems, no red eyes. The sprog grows up and becomes interesting in Quake3...
And now they are after me again! GRRRR!!!
What did you expect from a mutated CP/M ?
Would I be the first to spot a car reflection at 1:56?
Tried Unity for half a year
I can work it, but it's association of running apps and launcher icons still drives me crazy sometimes. I don't want to switch to Term on Workspace2, I want a new one in the current Workspace3 !!!
And how do I switch Term tabs without reaching for the mouse?
And 4 workspaces aren't enough, clearly
And they want to move away from synaptic, replacing it with whatever "software manager" thing. Back to apt-get times?! okay, can do apt-get too...
I'd be really pleased if they concentrated on adding new stuff rather than replacing things that worked perfectly
He sustains flight, i.e. speed and altitude, for considerable time
Crossing the Channel with a hangglider has been done way before Rossy, and landed without a parachute
