I think this particular use of "Delicious" means, "Just like Mum used to make".

(Or Dad, in fact Saturday morning bacon was definitely my Dad's thing, and still is.)

so lets see what the sales results for Q3 show before declaring WP dead on the basis of the Q2 results.

It was probably just pining for the fjords, the Lumia prefers kipping on it's back. Lovely plumage.

CDC: Ebola Cases Could Reach 1.4 Million In 4 Months

H0p313ss Re:Meanwhile (280 comments)

Plus, every new infection means more chances for Ebola to mutate, possibly into an airborne form.

But then we could start using fuel-air bombs on civilians! Hours of fun for the whole family.

Why Atheists Need Captain Kirk

H0p313ss Re:Christopher Hitchens said it best (937 comments)

If you want to be awe inspired:

Sorry, nothing inspiring there, just a rather sad and bitter man using highly selective evidence to attack a straw man.

But at least it shows that Atheists do actively attack religion, despite the many claims to the contrary that have appeared in this discussion.

You must have watched a different video to me, you don't find the Hubble deep field images to be awesome?

I think that if I were delusional enough to believe in a higher power then I would be awe-struck and inspired by the evidence of his great works in those photos. Forget the "world was created in seven days" bit, the observable Universe is an awesome place and if it doesn't strike a cord in your cold-cold heart then I truly feel sorry for you.

Why Atheists Need Captain Kirk

H0p313ss Re: illogical captain (937 comments)

Europe has had 2000 years of that kind of indoctrination. It's a wonder the entire continent isn't a backwards idiot ridden Sodom and Gamorrah.

I'm guessing you've never been to Manchester.

CDC: Ebola Cases Could Reach 1.4 Million In 4 Months

H0p313ss Re:Meanwhile (280 comments)

Instead of quarantines, we need to treat it at a regular hospital and treat the people with respect.

There's a great idea, let's put a highly infectious virus with a 50% kill rate into a hospital and not quarantine those known to be infected.

That's simply insane.

Yes, the whole situation on the ground is fucked up, but not recognizing that the ONLY way to contain Ebola is by quarantine is going to make things worse not better.

Scotland Votes No To Independence

H0p313ss Re:The over-65's swung it for No (474 comments)

I'm English, but I was pleasantly surprised to find most of the 16-17 year olds giving well reasoned opinions on why they were voting Yes or No.

I spent a good part of last evening listening to BBC Scotland Radio 1, I was very impressed with how civilized and informed everyone was behaving.

But perhaps I'm comparing it with Quebec.

Tim Cook Says Apple Can't Read Users' Emails, That iCloud Wasn't Hacked

H0p313ss Re:Not really a lie (191 comments) addresses are required for most of iCloud's services. Without iCloud loses a lot of functionality.

Guess what I don't have

Not true, you can register with iCloud with another email address, however it will then automatically allocate an address for you, but you don't have to use it nor does it limit the functionality. (This is what I do...)

Ask Slashdot: Any Place For Liberal Arts Degrees In Tech?

H0p313ss Get the best of both worlds (392 comments)

Having a STEM degree and no communication skills is limiting. Having communication skills and no tech background is limiting in another dimension.

This is why my daughter, bless her crazy little cotton socks, has been doing a double major of Liberal Arts and Civil Engineering. She completed the arts degree this spring and will finish her B.Eng. next fall.

Sci-Fi Authors and Scientists Predict an Optimistic Future

The perception of reality seems to change over time. Not surprisingly, BSG was a product of the Bush years.

Note that the Bush-era series is a reboot of the series from the 70's (Jimmy Carter era).

BBC: ISPs Should Assume VPN Users Are Pirates

H0p313ss Re:You, too? (363 comments)

So offer me one. Give me a internet license for BBC online and let me stream it from whereever I am on the planet. If you want you can do it by creating your own VPN and renting that to me.

Isn't that what iplayer is?

Why Women Have No Time For Wikipedia

H0p313ss Re:demography & culture (579 comments)

My theory is they don't go into STEM because of asshats like you. When they do, they go into fields where asshats like you aren't welcome. For example, my workplace has a firm "no asshats" policy, and, guess what, lots of STEM women.

Exactly, I work in a similar environment and I'd say that on average the women actually out-perform the men.

From my 70 year old mother who still designs railways for a living: "Of course we're better, we had to be just to get through school and stay in the game."

Why Women Have No Time For Wikipedia

H0p313ss Re:Obvious Reason (579 comments)

I mean, face it, men are just more willing to be the trolls and make life miserable for each other.

WAT?! You ever see what happens when you get a group of women together?

Sheesh. Asking a slashdotter for his insights about women is like asking a Mormon about his favorite microbrews.

Clearly the irony of your own observations is lost on you.

Android port for the Neo FreeRunner in progress

H0p313ss H0p313ss writes  |  more than 5 years ago

H0p313ss (811249) writes "Koolu has announced public access to their git repository for their port of Android to the Openmoko Neo FreeRunner smartphone.

Koolu is providing the patches necessary to take Google's Android Platform source code to run on the Openmoko FreeRunner phone, the steps to create a tool chain to build that code, and the instructions on how to build the binary images so more people who have FreeRunners (or want to purchase FreeRunners) can help with finishing the port.

Sean McNeal has been providing test images for a few weeks and there are a couple of YouTube videos demonstrating basic functionality."

While the initial platform delivery consists of the traditional SDK which includes the basic Java IDE and the Plugin Development Environment, over the coming weeks some 23 components will release for Eclipse 3.4 ranging from Modeling Tools to a complete C++ IDE.

Friends of Eclipse have early access to the mirrors"
