Since when has blocking some pirate sites been the same as censoring the content? Hysterical, much?
I'm no advocate of piracy, but the principle of allowing government-controlled selective blocking of information (for *any* reason, to start with) sets a dangerous precedent.
Don't you guys care at all?
I'm in the UK, I've read 1984 and I do care. And, like many of us, I didn't vote for this stupid government.
As for ISP's, on Plus Net currently, but I'm all ready to switch to Andrews & Arnold at the drop of a hat if any of this crap gets in the way of my internet use (or possibly when I actually need IPV6, whichever happens first) Incidentally, Cameron is quite likely pleased about the Eu threat to make internet censorship illegal. He'll play the "think of the children" card for all it's worth in the hope of getting public support for his plan to getting us out of Europe, which would suit him fine.
Emigration is starting to look like a serious option. Either that or getting quite unpleasantly noisy and political, and encouraging others to do the same.
I think you missed the big one: lots of people might actually start using Google+.
I might start using Google+, because the new system WILL allow me to use my real name at last.
I didn't care for jumping though all the certification hoops required to prove that my usual (single) name is, in fact, real.
Doesn't really tell us anything and certainly doesn't deny any of what Julie has alleged.
It doesn't deny it, but it does suggest that the problem is restricted to one or two people and not represent GitHub's office culture generally. It may not be quite as simple as that, of course, if the claims of chatroom spying turn out to be true.
I've used Avidemux for a long time, tried KDEnlive before and it was hard to understand and kept crashing - but a recent version of KDEnlive is quite different - easy to use, reasonably stable, does more than I want and will use all six cores of my CPU for rendering if I ask it to. I don't know about Pitivi, but you'd have to work very hard to convince me to throw development money at that when KDEnlive is apparently so far ahead.
As mentioned above there's also Cinelerra. I found that hard work to understand but I suspect it's very powerful.
Getting Ardour and other music/video software installed and configured to work properly and with low latency isn't easy though, and you are best off with a distribution that's been designed for that purpose from the start. AV Linux is my choice, though I've heard good things said about KXStudio and Dream Studio too.
And yes, at least with FAT there are volume size implications in the choice of FAT12 vs FAT16 vs FAT32.
So the Patent discussion is applicable to all three FAT sizes, because they all use the same mechanism for long names.
Why not say all OSes got 64-bit. Do they expect us to read the article or something? Honestly..
If I remember correctly, for a long time there have been 32 bit and 64 bit flash plugins for Windows while Linux only had 32 bit versions; you needed a special software wrapper to use the 32 bit plugin on 64 bit Linux, and it didn't work too well for everybody.
So Linux getting a 64 bit plugin along with the other platforms IS newsworthy.
