This is the point I've been making above and I've been getting non-answers like "it'll do X backwards compatibility" or "you can do remote desktops". I've never received an answer to this basic question of if a single application can be displayed on another machine.
That's for X apps. I'm talking about Wayland apps. Can native Wayland apps be remoted? I don't want to have a situation where I'm given a native Wayland app to control something and that something is on a remote machine. I don't want to have a situation of "Well, it's native Wayland. You have to be on the system's console to see that." Further, I don't want to have to fire up an entire desktop session to watch a window that takes up a tiny fraction of the screen.
Okay, I see now. Some other observations: 1) It sounds like Wayland doesn't do remoting yet. 2) The way they're talking about it suggests it's desktop-only -- no starting an application on some other machine and displaying it on the local machine.
#1 isn't too bad -- they're working on it. #2 has me more concerned. Are they planning on having it be able to export individual applications rather than just the entire deskstop?
Not supporting remoting is a misconception about Wayland? I certainly didn't see any discussion about that in the article. Would someone please point out a web page that discusses Wayland's remote capabilities?
A lot of these hot supermassive gas giants seem to be extremely young. I wonder what that says about planetary development. Do they lose mass after a billion or two years?
Slightly related, here are a few threads about radio-based baby monitors causing trouble in the ham bands:
The first and second one are about hams tracking down the problems. The second goes into great detail on how the user of the monitor was busted by the FCC. The third is from a user of a baby monitor going full-retard.
I spent some time as a poll official. As part of that job, I had to help people vote paper ballots with fill-bubbles who couldn't figure it out for themselves. Of course, I was forbidden from telling people who or what to vote for, or from offering any comments. The marks also had to be made by the voter's hand. Most of the people with trouble constantly made illegible squiggly marks all over the ballot instead of bubbling in neatly. People who did manage to vote by themselves also had problems. I was able to see their voted ballots because they ignored the instructions to keep the ballot concealed in the provided folder. Instead they waved the ballots over their heads for everyone to see. These too were often marked illegibly. The poll-watchers could only shrug sympathetically to me when this sort of thing happened. Voters have three tries to do it right and after that, too bad. A few people managed to get past the official guarding the ballot box and dumped their illegible ballot in before the official could react. There's another source of bad ballots.
I think New York might be trying to solve problems like these.
Other problems we had were cases of the adult child, who could barely speak or read English, was helping an elderly parent who couldn't speak or read English at all, and so I had to help. I very clearly caught many of these sons pointing to particular candidates or measures saying "Mark here". They were warned several times about this, but ultimately I couldn't do anything besides accept the ballot. Again the poll watchers just shrugged.
Wayland working on Pi is nice, but it's still a non-starter as long as it lacks networking.
Mini-ATX or Mini-ITX will do fine. I just haven't seen any that have the kinds of things you take for granted on x86 boards. I want an ARM board with SATA ports, PCIe slots, and DIMM (or SODIMM) slots. Is that too hard to produce? I don't see anything like this anywhere.
Hopefully this means we should start seeing ARM-using motherboards in an ATX form-factor. The Pi and Beaglebone are nice, but I want something that's eassentially just like a commodity x86 motherboard except it uses ARM.
The management of First & Only Bank would like to let everyone know that all the money has been piled on the front lawn, and also that they're very upset that it has been disappearing.
So if you are a robber, please don't the take the money. It's very rude.
The money has been placed on the front lawn to get it out of the way while the vault is being repaired.
How about this radical idea: strict adherence to the entire Constitution, not just little bits and pieces.
If you like LaTeX and want to produce EPUBs, I suggest you take a look at Pandoc ( http://johnmacfarlane.net/pandoc/ and http://github.com/jgm/pandoc.git ). It's a sort of swiss-army-knife of document conversion. It'll convert LaTeX to EPUB with a decent degree of accuracy. Lately it has been getting a lot of LaTeX-related enhancements, but it's still missing some staples like honoring \newpage and centered text. There's another package called tex4ebook ( http://github.com/michal-h21/tex4ebook.git) that's more LaTeX-specific. It could potentially be better than Pandoc, but is quite a bit behind in maturity.
Becaused centralized government sucks.
Here's a Steam installer for Wheezy: https://gist.github.com/grindars/4231563. It only installs per user, not for the whole system, but so far, it works.
