I've played ages ago. But that was then and now
bored of that. So just want things to work. Still like to play but more interested in other things now. For me Android showed me how it can be and since then I don't want to play with interfaces.
I don't customise my phone anymore, I don't even play games.
I don't know... just prefer more interesting projects now

Agriculture, specifically intensive farming is of course greater impact then this. That is true. So in that sense why bother with this?
Here's why. Its not good for our well being. If we treat animals with brutality then is it no surprise that our enemy in war shows no mercy?
With farming the whole thing is hidden from us from birth to packet. That doesn't make it OK but it does reduce the damage to us.
But critically it can be argued that WE are semi aquatic marine mammal and these animals are close relatives since we moved out of the sea... Taking in the psychology are they closer to us than apes - our fat distribution matches theirs not an apes. We have the dive reflex.
You can say dolphins are cute but isn't that for a reason? A conversation with a dolphin is easier than a cow. Our ease of compassion is due to them being similar to ourselves.
Really its best to observe the ratio of canines vs masticating teeth under your nose - eat meat appropriately - sometimes, not all the time.
Motivation for me in Europe, in order:
lack of city parking,
cost of fuel,
getting ripped off by garages on jobs too big for me to do myself,
hirecar cheapness in general,
I think also bigger cities are a factor. For anyone living in a city a car is more of a pain. It really divides people into countryside people and city folk.
As an aside... guys making the rules in the cities and capitals especially have absolutely no idea what it's like to wait for a bus in the countryside that never comes. Outside the city (which almost always are horrible places I don't like to be...) the car is nearly always completely indispensable. Suggestions of bicycles and non self maintainable batteries are so out of touch of non urban living.

wget, curl with cut, grep & awk
mplayer... with acsii output, transcode,
irc bots such as malware command and control interfaces - are there benign examples?
There are very few financial command line tools. It's strange but there doesn't seem to be a way to buy or sell securities, forex or futures.
Can anyone tell me why you can't |pipe| GUI programs....? Why can't you pipe audio live from
but let me finish that with stating the obvious, when obvious needs stating:
But what you don't do is whine about how ungrateful people are for the work you do when you've abused power. Can't really blame all on the NSA though - power will always be abused so it should not be given and instead processes to prevent it engineered.
This article is more at home on a financial site than a tech site. The radio tapping article is much more appropriate. With less comments in this article that's a good sign
I think I'll have to do the same if my wife makes me wear one of these to work again under my willy warmer
I bought last months LinuxFormat and it had really lost it's soul. The magazine seemed to have already died a few months before.
The main thing about LF 2-5 years ago was the humour. I think there was some kind of handover from AmigaFormat where you had guys like JonoBacon taking over. The big thing though was that it had a sense of humour. It was very funny, and in a British way too. That made it stand out from everything else, only Micromart sometimes had something a bit like this but that's been inconsistent.
Jono Bacon went on to Ubuntu as community manager and also wrote Art of the Community (which I'd like to point out is currently down from ~£40 to £4 on Amazon!). Kind of a shame the old crew aren't back together in entirety. I hope this new project can grab the attention.
I can see lots of people talking about the community donation aspect but for me the first thing that struck me was that this could have elements of the LinuxOutlaws style humour to it too. That would be great but it's no guarantee.
Having a community involvement in any way makes the whole thing that more interesting.
By the spirit of RMS I bless this project
Many might think "problem"...
I think "opportunity"!
I've written before how the archive can do a lot more than it presently does. For a start, it could be used as evidence. So how do we make money out of this? Well, the archive only goes so far in what it stores. If there is a page that we want to be stored for longer and more securely then we should be able to pay for that. More securely? How's about paying for it to be backed up to a p2p network, similar to SatoshiProof. You then charge a small fee extra for the service.
Of course, you could do the same for following or not following robots.txt but this is closer to messing with the integrity of archive.org
Just make sure this upper tier in the 2 tier system is genuine new functionality.
Stuck at "Loading kernel and hard drive image" for me under windows, online an offline, Chrome and IE.
I must be cursed.
I've been poor (but I was not), and I've been what I thought was rich. This is what I'd say about fear.
To answer this question one source of inspiration could be high stakes investment psychology. The more you have the more you fear to lose. The more you fear, the more you fear to lose. Arrogance blinds us to reality.
Fear of an easy life?
It's tough at the top.
So.... dream of a higher top.
Last I looked I think it was Globalstar who will be offering always on internet soon for portable phones, different from the dialup per minute. That might make basic mobile email a bit more usable. This isn't what you're looking for but I think that's the most use you're realistically going to get without a more exact location to research.
Even though internet is probably very poor and slow where you're going it's likely to be better than satellite.
Here's another option. Look into prepay and/or contract mobile phone data. In most countries in SA it's more expensive but still going to be better than satelite. If you want bandwidth you can chain them together - can someone explain how to do that on linux? I remember hearing about a kickstarter project that does it on Windows in a blackbox kind of way...
Also look into striking up deals with any place that has a decent connection and then using a VPN.
Yes I've heard that too, certainly for the UK and USA. To protect the airwaves. Not sure about the EU or other countries. The radio firmware would have to be supplied closed... any source code shouldn't be leaked...
Wait. Maybe we could make an exception for a fully open source, well code reviewed phone?
Oh, it doesn't exist does it.
OK, troll over. Just another opportunity to show that open source does have a unique selling point and it's not being capitalised on.
I have an old n900 at home. I'll be sitting this one out as I don't like resistive screens.
If you can show you're a developer with some projects under your belt who can help this project just send me a message and I'll send you my phone
