Comment Re: Wireshark runs without X11 under MacOSX (Score 1) 79

Well with GTK+ being cross platform, Wireshark on MacOS still required using the X Windows interface. So will the move to Qt finally make it a native app?

Wireshark doesn't require X11, GTK2 does.
So when you've installed GTK2 via Macports like this
  gtk2 @2.24.21_0+no_x11+quartz+universal
then wireshark isn't using X11 and feels like a native MacOS-Application:
- Wireshark-Dockicon
- No X11 is started
- The menubar is on top, like in any other mac-applcation

I can absolutly recommend NewsBlur!!

It's better than GoogleReader and is OpenSource. You've 3 options:
- use the free account (up to 64 sites)
- pay 24$/year for unlimited sites + extra features (fair price if you ask me)
- geek option: set it up yourself (you have all features in that way) ->

Plus, it comes with free iOS and Android-Apps.

I've set it up myself last week and said goodbye to google reader.


Muslim Groups Attempt to Censor Wikipedia 1730

Nom du Keyboard writes "The New York Times is reporting that Muslim groups are attempting to censor Wikipedia because of images of Muhammad contained in the article about him. 'A Frequently Asked Questions page explains the site's polite but firm refusal to remove the images: "Since Wikipedia is an encyclopedia with the goal of representing all topics from a neutral point of view, Wikipedia is not censored for the benefit of any particular group." The notes left on [online petitions against the page] come from all over the world. "It's totally unacceptable to print the Prophet's picture," Saadia Bukhari from Pakistan wrote in a message. "It shows insensitivity towards Muslim feelings and should be removed immediately."'"
