The thing is, The Unix Way allows for improvement without throwing (decades?) of coding into a bin and starting from scratch.
Sounds a lot like Mesh networking ?
People who are weak can not tolerate many saunas and therefore avoid them. Healthy people don't have a problem with them and take more of them. Saunas didn't make them healthy, saunas just weeded out the unhealthy.
You obviously have not been into public sauna in Finland if you claim that only healthy people go there..
Consider that Finland has something like 5 million people and 3 million saunas. Virtually almost *everyone* can go to sauna almost any time of the day with flick of a switch and waiting for 20-30 minutes for sauna to heat up..
And ideas like that are the root cause why it sucks to be sysadmin.
I do understand your rationale but its just not valid in every case. Continuing with car analogy: if your rear mirror breaks or run out of gas, you wont just buy a new car because after a while, you don't have any more money left.. Your daily life revolves with so many admins jobs that its just bullshit to say that they are not part of equation for making things happen in the world.. Consider how many sysadmins work is even in your direct route when you made that post: Isp's, possibly your company's, how about those who maintained ordering system where net gear was purchased. Banks where money was transferred to buy those good, paying salaries.. Admins who keep
Admins are enablers for Your Work....
Check Boxee's twitter account & blog and you spot one atleast one person behind it thats happy about this
They even claimed that they had influence on fcc that ruling turned out like it did.
Qik & Bambuser are bound to be available for Android & Iphone
Nothing is automatically "shared" from boxee but the feature i really like is the "social feeds". Basicly, you get a list of what your friends have been sharing in twitter,facebook et al and then you get to watch those when you start boxee. For me this is actually pretty nice feature, for example: wikileaks sends a quite a lot of video links almost everyday and those are typically also rather long vids too so when i get home and fire up the telly, they are all there in my queue
And adroind ofcourse - forgot that its linux
This is exact same pr bullshit they have pushed already. Only names are changed to protect the "innocent". What was once linux, is now MeeGo.
OMG! Who's this guy putting himself on the pedestal and calling himself an Evangelist. Yeah! Im evangelist alrite! Such a big man, thats what i am! =)
Well, boxee software is a fork of xbmc
And software is freely available so there's no real reason to get their hardware unless you actually want it..
1) Actual porting of the game - if you read the article, the guy who did the port did not know the codebase from the start - you propably knew your codebase in and out ?
2) Multi format packaging - its not only about building debian rules or spec file and you are set - if you target multiple platforms and hardware architectures via proper packaging - you need to be checking a lot of build options with dependencies..
3) website changes
4) and testing
And last, possible promotion ?
Releasing stuff might not always be just about making the code compile and hoping it works..
I'd make a guess that eating "raw" fish atleast has been a long tradition of hunter/gatherer cultures. Atleast nordic/scandinavian societies have recipes which are considered as food that are typically consumed during holidays - they might not be raw in the same sense as sushi but drying and salted fish are still respected delicasies.
There is no submission that is not significant. Even if the feature is not significant by itself, im sure the project will see the meaning of patch submission..
