To reply to myself: The commute is by train, not car. And I live 5 minutes walk from the station.
Agreed. I live in Germany, 15 km from one of the most expensive cities in the country. I live in a small town, 15 minute commute to the inner city (and 20 to my office). I own a large house, large garden, grow my own vegetables and have a much better quality of living than almost all of my colleagues. They all rent.
It's not brain surgery.
Give Oracle a break.
When Java was run as a totally open source thing by Sun it did not generate enough revenue and Sun, well, died. Went bankrupt. sold all their assets. Fired all their staff. Companies still need revenue and Sun's model did not work.
I am sure Oracle is not going to keep running Java the same way after that happened.
Thanks for that heads-up
MBP, last year. 13 Inch Retina with 1TB SSD, 16GM Ram
The test server under my desk has a i7 3550 with 32GB RAM and a couple of 3TB and 4TB disks and a boot SSD. It has a gigabyte mobo, and can run MacOS/X just fine. I seldomly use it though.
I also have about 10 arduinos,2 RaspPi model1 and 1 RaspPi model 2 for what it's worth.
>New idea - have a second run of conduit placed fairly high up. Suggested uses: Wall mount speakers, TVs, and such.
This. My entire house is wired up with Cat6 but this is something I can kick myself about.
It would have been rel useful for exactly that reason.
Also, don't think "no, I will never need an ethernet connection in the roof". Put it in while you can. Trust me, you will regret it
I want to put my Time Capsule there for security reasons. If someone breaks in I don't want my laptop AND my backup disk stolen.
More like attorocks but whatever.
And what much difference is there between a speeding bullet and a rock? The way you throw the rock might differ, but a rock is a rock.

The fundamental problem of liberalism. It is based on wishful thinking, not on facts.
Whe the Euro came said that they should have had 2 currencies. But that would have been politically incorrect since you now have a 'good' and a 'bad' currency.
Whether the liberals like it or not, things tick differently in the south of Europe. That does not mean the people are bad or that you are insulting when telling them that. But things are diffeent there for many historical, cultural and geographic reasons. Throwing everyone into the same pot was a bad idea.
No? Then it is useless for me.
The point about an advanced workstation is an advanced OS.
> For example, Sweden has to abide by most EU rules even though it isn't in the EU, because it wants a free trade agreement
Sweden certainly is in the EU. Norway ain't. Nor is Switzerland. I live next to the Swiss border and things are really, really expensive there (ever wanted to eat a not-very-good 15 Dollar burger???. Go to Basel.). they seem to do pretty well for themselves.
My dad seriously still uses a Xenix System in his shop. Occasionally with vi.
No modem though.
A few weeks ago I helped them use a Raspberry Pi as a terminal server because they could not boot their DOS terminals anymore. Why? No-one sells floppies anymore.
Have been using it since about 1992 or so. Linux 0.93. The first thing I install on any new system is joe. I sure won't use it for serious editing (Sublime Text r00lz!) but I do use it every single day for editing files on servers on and off.
joe's keyboard layout (^Kx and that stuff) is based on WordStar, a word processor back in the 80's.
I find the WS/joe idea of a modal selection where you explicity set the start end end of the block you want to work with very
I wrote a spreadsheet in 1988 that ran on DOS that had the same key combinations as joe. I really need to see if that thing still compiles.

Out of scientific interest, do you have any references for that ?
Start pirating his works. And publish them under your own name.
You had a great time in Siberia. Wow.
Hat off you you, sir.
