Comment: Both digital AND film cameras (Score 1) 316

by cyberpunkrocker (#42769743) Attached to: Current favorite still-image camera type:
I went digital quite a long time ago, and my current main camera is a Micro Four Thirds Olympus, but lately I've been rediscovering the joys of film photography with my Dad's old Yashicaflex C (1955, 60mm film) and Miranda Fv (1967, 35mm film). I'm even thinking of starting to develop the black-and-white films for myself.

Comment: No icons here, they are for the n00bs (Score 5, Insightful) 384

I've always hated the "Icons-On-A-Desktop"-design priciple. Back then when I still used Windows(TM) (That's almost 10 years ago...); I went to great lengths to remove every icon from my desktop - even the trashcan. Now as a Linux user, I use desktop environments / window managers which either does not support icons on desktop at all, or allow to turn them off.

A few years back I was very surprised to find that there wasn't any 'Tape Calculator Emulators' for Linux. I seem to have missed this; thanks for bringing this to attention! (Although it seems to be more-or-less abandoned project... I wonder whether it compiles on modern Gentoo?).

The tape calculator I have used for some time is SuperbCalc: It is java-based, so it will run on all OS'es.

The solution of this problem is trivial and is left as an exercise for the reader.
