Google Just Made It Easier To Run Linux On Your Chromebook

DECTerm Google's bullshit (169 comments)

The best way to boot and INSTALL linux on chromebooks -mainly some older models - is to install the coreboot/seabios, wipe their shite OS and install something more functional.

eBay Compromised

DECTerm people at eBay are losers... (193 comments)

Seems the people at eBay are completely losers, thanx to slashdot I just had a chat with the support at the UK eBay, they confirmed that I should change my password for my own safety, but NO fucking reply why there is no announcement on the local (ie. UK) site. They just only know well to milk their customers (Paypal) too with their fees.

Is It Possible To Erase Yourself From the Internet?

DECTerm forums + lists.. (295 comments)

While you can "easily" remove your account from Google/Facebook etc, its impossible to remove your account from Forums, I am registered at the past on forums that I don't use anymore, there is no effing way to delete your account, I bet this is intentionally, as *if* you could remove your account (and *if* possible your posts) there would be a mess on the forums. Also another big shit on the internet, is the mail lists that their archives are visible, so even you are off from one list, your posts and email are still there...

OpenSUSE Team Reworking Dev Model, Delays 12.2 Release

DECTerm Re:Suits me (38 comments)

Suits me too! I recently tried fedora 17... I spend almost one afternoon to understand why the heck the xsane on the F17 could not recognize the scanner part of my multifunction laser/scanner (samsung scx-3200) , (on OpenSUSE and Kubuntu, it was a 5min task to edit a file into the /etc/sane.d/ ) then I finally re-complied the 3.4 kernel and 'played' with the /proc/bus/usb access properties. then EVERYTIME I booted the darn system I got errors from this abomination called SELinux, which finally deactivated it, then I installed the beta OpenSUSE 12.2 , runs without any problem now..(even ITS a beta)

First Steps With the Raspberry Pi

DECTerm Re:I profited from the shortage (241 comments)

First Steps With the Raspberry Pi

DECTerm 25 USD .... oh yea (241 comments)

the $25 price for the RPI is mainly a marketing trick, as it was the (probably) the (initial) production cost.# The UK sale is around 29 GBP ---> 44 USD , ok Element14 said that the price included the postage (2nd class Royal mail, cost for this package is around 1.10£) so the remaining 27.9 £ --> around 42.8 USD definitely MORE than the 'advertised' 25 USD
