spaceweather.com is still not working. Here is an updated Google Cache of the site:
Since spaceweather was a smolering pile of silicon by the time i heard about it, here is the Google cache of the site:
Directory Opus. Five major releases on the Amiga; now at release 10.x on Windows.
If you have to use a PC running Microsoft Windows; it is at least nice to have the Linus blanket of a *working*, highly multi-threaded, File Manager written by a competent programmer!
FWIW. This place is dusty and needs a new coat of paint.
I couldn't pass this one up... Remember when Mr Data played Kolrami, the galaxy's greatest Stratgema player... and how instead of seeking to win, sought to keep the game going indefinitely?

"He busted him up!"
I could see lawsuits (class-action) if they try to outright ban homeowners from installing DC power systems in their homes. I doubt they could ever do that.
Making a direct back-feed connection to the Grid illegal? They can most likely pull that off... for a time. An act of Congress could be forthcoming to change that, too. (Remember the old Ma Bell, where you couldn't connect ANYTHING user-owned to their network?)
Curious... how much does a "typical" home installation cost there? (Assuming a family of 4, average house around 2,000 SF)
It matters to the Utility, because of the watts are flowing OUT, then they have to PAY YOU for that power. They don't want to do this.
It all boils down to this simple axiom: "Follow the money."
OK, how long will it take until the DRM running on the "cloud" OCR provider recognizes what's going on, and puts a stop to this? The Mac should be capable of running a local OCR. What happens at home stays at home... what happens "in the cloud" is everyone's business.
Overall, this would be a cool thing to set up... start it, go to work, then come home and have the whole book on your laptop. Just get rid of the "cloud middleman".
This post was voted "troll"? Good grief, all I did was ask an honest question! I did NOT intend this as a troll.
My definition of "server" in the context of this post was a WWW server that would be hosting multiple page sites, possibly even leasing space to others. Obviously, that definition is different than some people's.
The idea of it being a completely PRIVATE "server" where one logs in to control devices in their homes didn't occur to me.
So, if that was worth wasting Mod points to vote "troll" so be it. They're YOUR Mod points. Waste them if you wish.
Why run a WWW server at home, when you can use a hosting service for as little as $4 per month? Why not let someone else worry about installing patches to the OS, and keeping the hackers/bots at bay 24/7? I have several sites on several domains, and it's only $100 a year. IMHO, that's far more worthwhile than having to keep constant vigilance over my own hardware.
Sense is much deeper than the launcher. It's like a cancer that spreads into all the menus and built in systems. I absolutely despise it and I just returned a One X because of it.
I'm sorry, I realize that somebody spent a lot of effort and thought they were doing something really cool; however I have to give the mobile site a "fail".
Its page loading and scrolling performance is not acceptable in any of the Browsers on my dual-core phone: Opera, Dolphin, FireFox, Chrome--it feels high-latency: bloated and clunky. [...sort of like the type of user interaction expectations I would have from a Word Processor written in VisualAda.NET!]
New COKE, New Slashdot--back to "Classic".
