I have fond memories of dual booting Warp with Slackware.
So *you* were the other one. Nice to meet you finally.
Another one here actually, running a mix of Warp and Slack. Interesting, we all have UID:s below 10k.
Forgive my ignorance, but what do you mean, exactly? How does using VNC help this as opposed to using x-forwarding?
It's probably something like this: Open VNC session, start application on remote, close session. Open VNC session, the app is still there as you left it. I'm not 100% sure if that's possible to do with X11.
The real problem is that the poorly handled introduction of KDE4 sent a lot of long-time KDE users to another desktop. Now there is a significant amount of inertia to overcome to get any us back since we've gotten used to something else and our current choice has not pissed us off. KDE-technowhiz alone won't do it.
Honestly the stupidity of people never ceases to amaze me. The 4.0 release had big, huge, honking warning labels telling everyone that this was the first release in the 4.x series and that the API was stable — and that you should avoid it at any costs if you were a regular user. Seriously, the only way the KDE people could have made the message even more clear, would involve replacing the zero in 4.0 with the goatse guy.
And there's a tip for everyone working on Gnome 3.0...
Thats the thing though, Milk is great for Vitamin D - and Chocolate Milk is a favourite amongst gamers.
However, just having the D in your system doesn't get it to work, something in the sunlight "activates" it. I heard it from a girl one time.
You actually TALKED to a girl? Wow. That's just incredible
There's no pass by reference in Java, it's all pass by value. Yes, I'm a pedantic Coward
That can't be right. Passing everything by value would mean that an object modified simultaneously in two threads would get out of sync immediately. Also, a quick Google search shows that Java actually passes objects by reference. So much for pedantic cowards...
PS3s are big endian machines. Xbox 360s are little endian.
Q.E.D They can't talk to each other.
Oh, right, that's why all of those PowerPC equipped Macs couldn't connect to networks and exchange information with my x86 Linux server: they had different endians.
No, actually, that's bullshit. There is absolutely no reason at all why the endian should matter. If a piece of software can't communicate with another because of different endians, the programmers should be dragged out into the woods and be shot.
Network byte order. Look it up.
and you're restricted from hosting content that they consider "obscene, vulgar, hateful, threatening, or that violates any laws"
Dude... You're talking about a company residing in Norway. The third largest export after oil and salmon is Black Metal. Which is kind of bizarre, as Norwegian is probably one of the most cheerful languages there is.
I think you're drawing the wrong conclusion. If a third-party publisher would create a game with the same high standards of Super Mario Galaxy or Metroid Prime 3, instead of bad PS2 ports or quick hackjobs... Don't you think they would sell tons and tons of them? The Wii is perfect for FPS games, moving from the clunky and worthless dual-analog control to a mouse+WASD compatible scheme. Despite that, noone has really bothered with doing anything for it other than Conduit.
Strange. I seem to recall the GNOME project being started because of KDE using the Qt toolkit, and then trying to catch up with KIOSlaves, DCOP, KParts and other superior technologies in the KDE camp.
