Your wife's phone is rooted, that's what SuperSU is about.
That's what I came here to check. Would have been a useful bit of information to mention in the blurb.
Are you seriously advocating having people shooting guns into the airspace around an airport?
Of course not, you silly, it was sarcasm. Shooting drones down would be more fun than legislating them, though.
Regulation or banning would be ineffective, it's so easy to order parts online and build the things yourself. Or 3D-print them. A sniper or two with good rifles on airport grounds, though, would most likely work much better.
Many things in life were not originally designed for the tasks they were later used for. SpaceShipTwo and any future revisions may still yield useful tech or information. Dismissing it all just because it's not designed for deep space is short-sighted.
As much as it is off-topic, I do swing both ways.
Windows 8 is pretty much the same OS as 7 with a slightly worse UI.
I've been using Windows 8 with Start8 for well over a year now and I really don't have much to complain. I just simply disabled all the Metro-related hot corners with Start8, set the system to boot to desktop and changed the default apps from Metro-ones to the standard desktop-ones. Visually the only difference to Windows 7 is the lack of translucent window-borders -- something that I do not mind -- and it feels a tad faster in pretty much everything. I upgraded my boyfriend's PC and went and installed a similar Win8 - setup for him, too, and he hasn't been complaining about it, either, and he's just the kind of a person who tends to complain about even quite irrelevant things if they just happen to differ from what he's used to.
All this is to say: I feel Win8 is perfectly useable as long as you don't delve into Metro.
No, they're responsible for maintaining their packages in every repository they wish to add their package to, though. If they want to be part of the Ubuntu repo, rather than hosting their own repository, they play by Ubuntu's rules. Don't like it? Run your own repository.
They do: http://software.opensuse.org/d...
They're not the ones maintaining the packages in Ubuntu's repos, that's Ubuntu-folks' own doing.
They *DO* provide repos for multiple distros: http://software.opensuse.org/d...
Providing repos, however, does not fix this. If Ubuntu decides to carry packages for ownCloud on their on repos then keeping those packages up-to-date and secure is their responsibility.
Deliberately destroying equipment because it uses a fake component goes to a whole new level of nastiness.
I came here to also say that deliberately destroying property that doesn't belong to you is, as far as I know, illegal. If it was a private person doing that they'd probably land jailtime real fast, but companies tend to get mere slaps on their wrists, so we'll see..
No, it means you have questionable taste in Shadowrun games.
Considering that I have no previous experience with Shadowrun games at all I find my experience so far pretty good.
And what reason would I have to lie about it?
Anyone who contributes money to a Kickstarter project deserves what they get.
I didn't use Kickstarter, but I backed a game while the devs were still asking for funding on both Kickstarter and a few other places. I got a great, worthy game and didn't feel even the tiniest amount cheated out of my money: the game was Shadowrun Returns. Does that mean I deserve great, enjoyable games?
I referenced the following part: The anonabox has been developed and refined for the sole purpose of running the open source software Tor, considered the best and most secure way to access the Internet anonymously. All traffic coming out of or going into your computer or network is encrypted this way. The result is strong, secure anonymity.
Relating to the above, I asked exactly how can they make such claims when proper anonymity requires the users to also understand the concept and to actively avoid doing things that would compromise that anonymity, like e.g. logging to Facebook or checking e-mails. I did say that they are very specifically making it sound like the box can just magically make you anonymous even when you do your usual stuff over Tor and they should either rephrase their sales pitch or I'll assume they don't even want people to really understand the concept. My question has gone unanswered, so take what you will!
If you prefer Gnome to KDE, why?
Well, I just dropped KDE today after trying it briefly. I noticed my system slowing down to a crawl after a while and after digging into it I noticed kded4 eating nearly 14GB RAM due to some memory-leak. Googling for the issue it seems to be an issue that's been around since 2010 or something. The suggested workaround -- disable power-saving service called "Powerdevil" -- didn't work, and no one on KDE's IRC-channel even tried to assist with the issue, so yeah, I dropped it.
