Ask Slashdot: Life After N900?

Lispy Get a Pre 3 (303 comments)

It's got a hardware keyboard, Linux underneath, homebrew scene going strong and a bunch of apps that you might find useful, ymmv. Battery life is 3 days with powersaver and data switching on/off on demand. Really everything you could ask for if you want a decent specced/priced smartphone which is a bit newer than your n900, sports a great capacitive touchscreen and since obsolete ecosystems seem to be your thing, welcome on board: www.http://webosnation.com

Lispy Re:OpenWebOS is still around... (207 comments)

I wish I had modpoints. Kids today seem to forget about it and it could sure use some manpower.

It's posts like that, that make me feel like an utterly completely useless techguy. I know nothing about the modern web and I don't even know it.

Why PC Sales Are Declining

Lispy Re:It's worse than that (564 comments)

Not to mention you lose a lot of ports if you go the shiny Ultrabook road. You might gain the odd USB 3.0 port but you lose VGA, RJ45, serial, HDMI, Firewire, DVD Drive for watchting movies and so on.

Why PC Sales Are Declining

Lispy Re:My computers always lasted a long time... (564 comments)

My Dell is a M1330 with a Core 2Duo. No upgrade needed, everything works fine. No dead pixels, even the DVD slotdrive is fine. Just saying, Dell ain't THAT bad.

GNOME 3.8 Released Featuring New "Classic" Mode

Lispy Elementary OS... (267 comments)

...no need for Gnome 3.8 now that Elementary OS is coming along so nicely. It tends to be forgotten around here as an alternative, so I thought I'd mention it.

Startup Offers Pay-Per-Page E-Books

Lispy This will lead to terrible books... (81 comments)

....that just try to keep you turning pages just like soap operas. All the drama will be lost by an effectdriven style that resembles "keep tuned for the next page where he will get the girl....no really just read on a weee bit more."

Ask Slashdot: Easiest Way To Consolidate Household Media?

Lispy Re:ownCloud (272 comments)

Owncloud is really great. I'd put it on a webhoster so you can reach it from everywhere.
For my home I use a NAS, an old one actually (Siemens AMS150). If you have already decent hardware (lots of drives and a PC) you could try FreeNAS, it does everything a dedicated NAS does and more but of course you won't get the great powersavings of the custom built ones. Setup is trivial and it comes with a HTML-based GUI.

Sweet Times For Cows As Gummy Worms Replace Corn Feed

Lispy Gummyworms = Gelatin = meat byproducts (432 comments)

Just noting that gummy worms are made out of gelatin wich is according to wikipedia.org: "...a mixture of peptides and proteins produced by partial hydrolysis of collagen extracted from the skin, boiled crushed horn, hoof and bones, connective tissues, organs and some intestines of animals such as domesticated cattle, chicken, horses, and pigs." So basically we're feeding them cows/meat by products, and this was, iirc one of the reasons for mad cow disease back in the day....

Can NASA Warm Cold Fusion?

Lispy Re:Answer, in brief: (556 comments)

So I was a bit disappointed when the whole thing became a polarized mess, rather than a good start into proper scientific research. Almost any scientist who investigated cold-fusion was considered a quack immediately.

Isnt any other Battery a "polarized mess" from the very beginning?

Skilled Readers Recognize Words By Shape

Lispy This is news? (420 comments)

Interesting. I was under the impression that this is common sense. Maybe I should have spoken it out aloud in order to get all the praise. ;) Pretty interesting still to know that this is scientifically proven now. I wonder if this could be used for learning another language.

What's the cheapest elegant DLNA/UPNP Client?

Lispy Lispy writes  |  about 2 years ago

Lispy (136512) writes "I'm looking for a cheap DLNA/UPNP single-purpose solution that can stream audio from my NAS to my Hifi in the living room. I used to have an old G5 Mac with XBMC which died on me and now I am using my laptop to achieve this wich is less than elegant. Since there are no UPNP-Client applications for WebOS I can't use my phone to stream the audio. I would love to get a dirtcheap Android that can handle this or even an aging Palm Treo or anything. All it needs is Wifi and UPNP compatibility. How would the slashdot crowd tackle this? I do not want to use an old laptop, it should be really tiny, cheap and reasonaly easy to use."

Lispy writes "Just wanted to inform the /. crowd that the latest Ubuntu Dapper xserver-core update breaks Ubuntus X-Server. There is a note on ubuntuforums.org that explains how to fix this (its not that bad if you arent scared of a shell).
But the main question is why this escaped them in the first place. Breaking a lot of fresh converts X-Servers is pretty much telling them that Linux is even worse than what they were using before. I think that things like this could really harm the image of this great distro especially for commercial roll-outs. What do you think?"
