Incorrect - the world has continued to warm. You need to update your knowledge, please see http://www.skepticalscience.co...
It'd help you to wander around that site - they're on top of recent developments and watch new papers as they come out.
In his case, when you look at the link, he's still wrong on a lot of areas. Dig around a bit more.
That would be the Richard Lindzen who has been consistently wrong about Global Warming?

I have a bunch of CDs that I've ordered, and the arrival rate is rather spotty over here in Oz....
Changing a user's session to that? That's just cruel. I used CDE for a while on Sun workstations back in the late 90s, but ended up using fvwm on Linux, Gnome 2, KDE, icewm and now I'm an xfce bigot.
Open Motif was opensourced quite a while ago, you find it as libmotif4 and mwm in most distros. CDE was opensourced last year - the sourceforge page is http://sourceforge.net/projects/cdesktopenv/
Well, I sat down & listened to the talk (which apparently a lot of commentors did not) and sex was really only peripheral to the whole thing. It was more about the state of mind that people in the hacking community have, and the stresses and dangers that it has as a result. It spoke about mitigating some of that damage.
Nope, not quite correct - all it takes is a belief that the end justifies the means. That way is the root of much evil.

I have one of these - 5 inch e-ink screen, with the supplied firmware replaced with the OpenInkPort (http://openinkpot.org) stuff. Works well. Reads just about every ebook format there is. All the source code is open and can be compiled by yourself using a the cross-platfor environment IPLinux. You can even ssh into it from the USB connection (no wireless). I have over 2000 books and short stories loaded into a 2GB SDHC card that came with it.
I also have a Merlin HYGE0109B, with a 6 inch screen, but that's still running proprietary firmware, which only supports TXT and PDF. It gets a bit flakey when you have more than 64 books loaded. There is an OpenInkPort port in progress to this device, which is not complete yet.
Both these devices can be managed by the Calibre ebook manager, which runs under Linux, OSX and Windows (and there's also a port to FreeBSD, and possibly others)
The wireless access and ability to buy DRM'd books from one book store are not things I'm particularly interested in. I am aware that there are cracks for DRM'd epub books from B&N, as well as those using the Adobe DRM, but still, there's a bunch of classics out there, as well as independent publishers such as Baen. Visit Gutenberg.org, Feedbooks, to mention a few, and you'll be pleasantly surprised.
I intend purchasing a unit with a 10 inch screen when they become more available at the end of this year, so I'm able to view PDFs without having to zoom in. This is a good size for textbooks and other puiblications utilising diagrams.
In a fortnight's time - I just bought a pair of cats who in total ended up costing something similar.. Sigh.
I'd be interested - I live in Canberra, so would have to have one shipped. Email is stephen.hocking at gmail.com. You're not the Michael Smith who was involved in XFree86 and who helped me get a copy of Dell SVR4 many years ago?
