Ask Slashdot: How To Start With Linux In the Workplace?

Remind me, I stand on which leg and chant the name of which Polynesian deity while doing this?

I think the chant goes: DEVELOPERS, DEVELOPERS, DEVELOPERS

Can the ObamaCare Enrollment Numbers Be Believed?

H0p313ss Re:Really? (723 comments)

Wow, if you believe these numbers from the "administration" I really feel sorry for you. These folks lie, violate the US Constitution and coverup endless incompetence on daily basis.

I have three letter for you to contemplate.

WMD

IMHO, Bush and Chaney should be up on charges for crimes against humanity, but you can go on whining about "forced" health care if that somehow makes you feel more free.

Australia Declares Homeopathy Nonsense, Urges Doctors to Inform Patients

H0p313ss Re:If this were the US.... (408 comments)

Anecdotal but, there are 5 members of my immediate family who subscribe to all that bullshit. Three of them are Republicans. Of those three, one most certainly brings a thermos full of homeopathy and wears healing crystals when they go out unicorn hunting.

If I get my hands on the asshat who's been poaching my unicorns there'll be hell to pay.

Who will speak for the unicorn farmers?

Windows 8.1 Update Released, With Improvements For Non-Touch Hardware

H0p313ss Re:Why are you using the touch interface with a mo (294 comments)

I was pointing out the obtuseness of the basic, introductory way of performing a task. You know, the thing that should be the most intuitive, straightforward, process.

I agree completely.

As far as I'm concerned the Window 8 UI is a total clusterfuck for power users and novices alike, it's the worst of both worlds.

How do you shut down Windows 8 with a mouse?

1) Click on desktop
2) right click on the windows icon on the bottom left corner of the screen
3) In the menu that appears go to "Shut down or sign out" sub menu
4) Select "Shut down"
5) Bend over and kiss your work goodbye

Windows 8.1 Update Released, With Improvements For Non-Touch Hardware

H0p313ss Re:hoping that Windows 8 is like Vista,.... (294 comments)

I really liked the Pinball.

Pinball was the absolute best feature of NT 4.0, just like Solitaire was the best feature of Windows 3.1. (Now that I say that, the Win 8 Solitaire is pretty sweet on a retina display.)

Windows ain't done 'till Solitaire won't run.

Bunnie Huang's Novena Open Source Laptop Launches Via Crowd Supply

H0p313ss Re:Holy smoking wallets, Batman! (88 comments)

Think of it as a workstation with a processor as powerful as cell phone.

...for the price of a macbook pro.

I love the idea and the spirit of the project, but it's just not economically viable.

If you wanted an explanation, you could have asked for one.

Or he could have taken the 10 seconds to google it instead of being a dick, but the poor fool didn't realize he was wading into a gunfight with a pencil sharpener.

Michael Abrash Joins Oculus, Calls Facebook 'Final Piece of the Puzzle'

H0p313ss Re:Facebook is written in php (232 comments)

If only that were true, I can only conclude that you must be new here.

Your right of course that a shit ton of websites have been single platform / single browser over the years. But by and large the majority of the web has been cross-platform, and the situation today is better than its ever been.

I think the web has been a great leveler platform wise and the situation has improved enormously, but I think the majority being cross-platform is relatively recent. Between 2002 and 2008 or so IE had a stranglehold and there are TONS of IE specific applications out there.

Right now with XP support disappearing the companies that invested heavily in Microsofts platform specific technologies, that Microsoft have now basically abandoned themselves. These companies are now scrambling to either migrate off XP and either find (crazy) ways to support their legacy apps or replace them entirely. (Yes Lloyds, I'm looking at you, you and your silly banking friends.)

On the upside, the're a royal fuckton of money to be made helping them.

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."
