How much effort would it take to create a plug-in for FF and/or i.e. that contained the dart vm?
Would it get you anything? What would the issues be?
'shake' flashlights are great. No need to wonder if you have a charge, just shake the thing. Great for when you just need the occasional minute of light, like at the cottage when you need to find the outhouse in the middle of the night. Batteries are always dead when you need them most.
I've used different ones and some are definitely better quality than others.

It's pretty clear that this case isn't so much about the three defendants as it is about the vultures circling wanting what is left of the Nortel carcass for themselves. To gorge on that carrion someone has to be shown to be guilty. The problem is even the judge is having problems seeing guilt when the accounting practices were accepted by the auditors.
What isn't clear to me, is how all this might affect the pensioners and former employees claims. They are the ones who really got screwed by this whole mess.
I couldn't agree with this more.
I just bought a Samsung 'smart' tv. I own a cable hd box. While trying to get things to work I discovered by accident that both of these pieces of equipment have oss pieces, which has led me down a rabbit hole of investigating licenses, checking firmware releases and jailbreaking tutorials.
These boxes should be able to talk to each other. Easily. I can see their ip addresses. I am not an expert but I don't want to have to buy a seperate device for each piece of functionality I'd like.
Making equipment inaccessible by doing end runs around the GPL is just making me want to support the GPL more (and these companies less), but I need more 'middle ground' info from the great people who have provided open software.
i.e. it is disheartening that slashdot spends more time debating licenses these days than tech, but it has become nescessary. I'd like to see more discussions about how to enable the equipment we own. I didn't even appreciate that this is what jailbreaking is. I think.
While I agree with your comment, I still think it will happen. Automated systems will make these price calculations and _eventually_ dissatisfied customers will leave, but it will take time and the cause&effect won't be clear. The results will eventually speak for themselves.
Forgot he wrote those. I gained my love of reading from them. I know the Martians are still hiding out there.
When my daughter was in senior kindergartern here in Canada she had a great teacher who emailed us everyday. Just a one liner of what the kids did that day - coloring, sang a song, whatever. It was fantastic. I know some of the kids were recent immigrants and I'm going to assume some of the families were poor, but the email list seemed to have all the families names on it. Having your name on the list was optional.
So it can be done, and I don't think it needs much infrastructure or effort for a simple system.
Now, the next year, when my daughter changed schools and teachers I mentioned this to the new teacher at the first parent-teacher meeting. She said: 'I've heard about that teacher. I won't promise anything.' She implied that she would take it up with the union as to whether it was a requirement of her job.
I am now getting more and more familiar with the educational bureacracy, but there are good teachers out there, and simple, appropriate solutions that help.
Why c# over python? I usually hear positives about c# but python just lets me 'get things done'.
I haven't used c# but on occasion have to wrangle java, and it is painful after the freedom of python. No boilerplate. Based on c#'s lineage I find it hard to imagine that there isn't a fair amount of boilerplate involved with using it.
