Agreed: that's subtle, but that's a wise distinction to make.
hehehe, that's what I get for not RTFing entire A, I didn't see they'd inlined the entire thing in it. Derp!
Found this, seems legit:
Don't forget your rations. Make sure you bring iron ones--and a lot of 'em, especially for wilderness adventures.
Agreed. Google have turned into major scumbags on this.
It's a testament to the power of corporate brainwashing ("Do no evil! Lol") that most "geeks" give them a pass on this and the rest of their shenanigans.
But I'm seeing two benefits:
1) If Canonical can get traction with the OEMs, maybe there will be more diversity in the type of hardware available. Might open up the "mobile OS hacking" subculture even further, allowing people to come up with novel, mobile GNU/Linux distributions.
2) Allowing devs to write/ship mobile applications in something other than ObjC (iOS) and Java (Android). I don't think it's possible or viable today, for example, to write a full Python mobile application and ship it. Sure, there are some pet projects out there that will, with some effort, let you kindasorta run things like Perl or Python on Android, but anything other than ObjC/Java are second-class citizens, currently.
Perhaps having Ubuntu begin to carve out even a little space here might help open the market a bit to more interesting and useful approaches to mobile operating systems?
I'm also a full xmonad convert. I don't know how I ever got along without it, really.
Now you have me wondering how different life would be on a VHRD? Maybe it's time for a better monitor...
Same here--that's when I usually go and hang out, maybe near the border of our province.
Baldrson made the front page.
Jim Bowery is a racist piece of crap. This is where my journey with this website ends.
Surely there's enough blame to go around?
We can and should blame the MPs for doing unethical things, bringing in bad laws and generally behaving like arseholes.
We can also blame the public for being complacent and not voting for AVC or whatever it was. In fact this latter blame apportioning appeals to me a lot because I left the country for several years, and when I came back I found out that the great unwashed had voted to continue being ignored. Morons!
Which goes to show that it has zero support, surely?
Always the way.
The last big one I remember was ID cards, which was also very skewed, but at the last minute the government decided that any results collected from the internet were unrepresentative and to be ignored.
It's almost as if your opinion doesn't count if collected electronically, because it's too easy or something. Never mind that it brings down the barriers and allows people to participate just that little bit more in democracy, no citizen, you didn't try hard enough so even though we heard you we feel safe ignoring you.
And they are safe, frankly. We never vote the bastards out because of this stuff.
Actually a number of them are potentially trying to bring the aircraft.
See 'chemtrails' for a conspiracy community of whackos who think that airliners are trying to poison them, and that bringing them down would be just awesome.
I don't agree either, because these provisions are usually more about what you are allowed to do with what you've bought than they are about hacking other people's systems.
Breaking DRM should be legal and applauded, not criminalised.
