Yeah, mine's lost half its battery life from that. I'm making the effort to run it on the battery as much as i can now. But the problem with doing that is that when you really need to run off battery, the battery's unlikely to be fully charged. That's a serious flaw in laptop battery systems - and one that there's probably no currently forseeable fix for.
Stop making excuses and learn how to do your job and you'll be happier too.
Too right! There's a lot of whining on slashdot about this sort of thing. As soon as you see it, you know the writer's just incompetent and blaming their tools.
That's how i feel too. However, i'm a computer nerd and have been for 35 years, and i suspect that makes me a bit different from average users. While Gnome 3 irritates me a lot (as do all other desktops, incidentally), i can see the point of it - and it's not aimed at you or me.
Not any more it's not. And it never was with anyone who had a clue. Flash based web sites always were and always will be shit.
Is it so wrong to believe in different languages for different things? It seems crazy to try and create one tool that does everything just so developers can be lazy or negligent.
It's wrong if you're lazy or not very smart - because you want a language that saves you having to actually do anything. You've only got to look at the shit that passes for web development on some sites to see that there's no shortage of those sorts of people working in the industry.
Frankly, the w3c standards are crap.
If you people put as much effort into learning how to use the tools you have as you do into making excuses about why you can't use them, you might actually get some useful work done.
If I am not mistaken you can do the same thing in Haxe, and that includes Flash development as well.
That would be useful if you had a time machine and wanted to work 10 years ago.
Flash? Seriously? are you suggesting the ability to produce the worst web sites ever is a selling point?

Brain? Fuck off! This is news for nerds, not news for retards.
A better idea is to get a red led bulb off ebay. Save electricty and sleep better.
It's the colour of the light, more than its brightness. Blue light inhibits melatonin production, increasing wakefulness. Red light's ok at night, blue light's not.
Small hint: writing like a troll just makes you look stupid.
All the bugs i've mentioned have already been reported. And, guess what... They only seem to affect people who don't use kde.
I think most people would agree that this world needs more love.
I agree. I also think we need less delusion.
However, i understand some people can't cope with the fact that life's completely pointless and that we totally cease to exist at the end of it, and if religion helps those people, then that's ok. I don't want to attack people's harmless delusions - unless they think it's ok to shove those delusions down other people's throats, or force their imaginary god's mythical will on other people that is. If they do, then i'll say what i think too.
I guess the upside of that is you won't be disappointed. No christian ever died and then realised they were wrong - because once your brain is dead, that's you finished. Forever.
At 37 I have been though the 18 barrier, the 21 barrier, and the 30 barrier. They have all felt like non-events. I expect 40 to be similarly anticlimactic.
50's the same. I'll be 60 in a bit over 3 years - i doubt that'll be much different really, either.
Yes, Digikam's good - so long as you use kde. I don't, but i put up with its annoying gnome incompatibilities because it's the best there is - and i've tried all the rest.
That doesn't make sense - "so long as you use kde" + "I don't".
How can it not make sense? Digikam's not good if you use Gnome. It's usable, but some functions don't work.
As for GNOME incompatabilities - can you expand on the "incompatabilities" and conflicts you have? Have you filed bug reports?
Some things don't work. I've recently upgraded Fedora and i haven't tried Digikam with the new version, so i don't know if the problems are the same. But previously, image "tool tips" (i.e., showing metadata etc when you hover the mouse pointer over a thumbnail) were blank, and the preview image was blank - which was rather annoying. No, i haven't filed bug reports as i haven't checked if they are bugs (by testing it with KDE) or just incompatibilities with Gnome. Digikam is a KDE application and it never claims to work with Gnome.
