Vote 1 Ubuntu Studio. Works great. Rosegarden works fine with it too (not loaded by default, post-install it).
I have, and their skin is super tough. Try stitching a dog up with a needle and thread - their skin is like old boot leather.
In further news, innovative company plans to deliver the Internet via drone... Books by drone, c'mon - back, to the future!!!!
I'd believe it. I've seen some old (not ancient) charcoal drawings in a limestone cave on Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands. The drawings were mainly of head hunting boats and war axes from the Western Province (from a different area the cave is in). The cave is hidden a couple of miles inland from the coast. The scenario would likely be that the war canoes turn up, the men stay to defend and the women and children run inland to the safety of the cave, then draw what they have seen on the cave walls. My other scenario is a mother yelling "would you kids stop drawing on the cave walls!!!!". If it's like my house, that would be much more like it.
Spam in a can! I had to make that joke. This guy was a serious legend for me - it was one of those names I memorized as a space geeky ten year old in the early seventies. Vale sir.
Any light aircraft, when trimmed correctly, will continue to fly quite well if you leave it alone. Line it up on the runway (yes, it sort of steers like a car), and gently pull the power back (eyes to the end of the runway
:-). With plenty of runway, it will land itself. Example - Lady Be Good http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lady_Be_Good_(aircraft)
I got so sick of having twenty roaches scuttling for cover when I turned the kitchen light on that I just used to smack them with my hands (used to live near the ocean in Sydney - 365 day a year roaches).
Hey, - there's some cop trying to get my attention - gotta go - Sent from my iPhone
I first used VMS in Computing 122, programming in Fortran 77, at uni in 1984. Vale VMS...
Sorry, no-one in Australia drinks Fosters anymore. We're all boutique these days - except for Queenslanders, who only drink Fourex (XXXX) - and the reason it's called XXXX is because they can't spell 'beer'.
In the Solomon Islands, we're happy to have two soup cans joined by a piece of string. Fibre and wireless are becoming more dominant though.
What would be nice would be to have lockers at airports. I live out in the Pacific and it would be convenient to have stuff sent to a locker at say Brisbane airport, where I pick it up for my last leg home.
How can you tell when you've had a Vietnamese burgle your house? Your VCR is gone, but your homework is done...
LibreOffice can't disrupt MS Office because if something is free then there must be something wrong with it (that's how they think out in the Pacific). If LibreOffice had a $400 price tag it would be way more popular than it is. (Stolen watermelon always tastes better). That's why people pirate Windows rather then use Linux - free? what's wrong with it? I'm not getting a 'professional' pirated experience if I don't use Windows.
Not just a piracy problem - even when offered open source software people in developing countries will go for pirated software because it is 'worth something' - if the software is free (as in you don't have to pay a license for it) then there must be something wrong with it. They would much rather use free stolen software than free free software. Also, due to lower connectivity rates, memory sticks get passed around (music, movies) - I'm not sure about now, but a few years ago here in the Solomon Islands I used to get 100% success rate on finding malware on memory sticks I tested. Another factor is the cost of bandwidth - Solomon Islands, 7 cents US per megabyte is costly for most locals, so memory stick malware passing is still rife.
