Comment Geeksphone consistently sold out (Score 1) 53 53

This seems a bit unnecessary since there's enough demand to keep Geeksphone sold out.

Maybe those aren't getting into the hands of developers, but given that the phones are definitely sub-par for someone who just wants the latest and greatest, I would expect most are going to the people they are intended for.

Comment Typical Phoronix (Score 1) 147 147

I gave up on reading Phoronix because they report on nothing but benchmarks when those are very uninteresting from a Linux perspective unless things fall way behind. There are plenty of non-Linux sites benchmarking hardware. What we need in a Linux review site is someone focuesed on compatibility, stability and ease of configuration.

You need to either make the filter whitelist of approved sites with a librarian able to add things on the fly, or don't even waste your time because the kids will be spending their days searching for porn sites that you haven't yet blocked.

If it's a computer lab dedicated to research and approved uses, then whitelist. If it's computers for general use, where they can check email, there's no excuse for blocking. Partly this is about the age of the students -- I'd expect younger kids to be on whitelist only, while in high school, they've already got live streaming hardcore porn on their smartphones.

If you didn't have to work so hard, you'd have more time to be depressed.
