They really be more open on how much donations they are getting and how much the hosting actually costs. I really cannot support such projects that have vague donation'o'meter and I really can't judge if my money is spent running the infrastucture or to buy beers for the developers (which is just fine as long as I am told that part of my money is used this way).

Comment Re:legalism is a crap philosophy. (Score 1) 582

I am not aware of any such European wide laws. Recording on any public place is ok, there might be issues if you publish said recordings and you can identify people from said clips (though often this is ok too), if you collect the register plate numbers, you might be creating a database that needs to be registered.

Comment Re:Seems reasonable (Score 1) 197

Though if you live in a civilized country, the government wouldn't help you to enforce a contract if it is unreasonable. When you rent an apartment to someone, you cannot tell them how to use that property. They do have to compensate you if they damage it, but it is none of your business if they sublet it or give it their friend and allow her to live there for free.

Comment Re:Eat less than you burn (Score 1) 496

I've been on low carb diet for just under a year and lost 112lbs and haven't had to do anything else yet, just avoid sugars and carbs. Just get results from the lab and all the tests they took look fine, so the diet is fine that way too. I don't think there is anything that special about eating low carb, it just is fairly difficult to get too many calories per day without carbs.
