Blender 2.66 Released

Nermal6693 Re:Usability (158 comments)

I tried Blender for the first time a couple of weeks ago (version 2.65) and I found the UI horrendous. Multiple menu bars, non-standard file browsers, not to mention having to press X instead of Delete to remove objects. I shudder to think what the old UI was like if this is a "new and improved" one.

Microsoft Killed the Start Menu Because No One Uses It

Nermal6693 Re:Completely agree! Have been using Windows 8 als (862 comments)

Legacy apps still went into the Start menu. I'm certain of that.

As for some apps not going in there, it's possible that some legacy apps' installers tried to write directly to the .grp file instead of using the normal API. That'd probably cause problems.

In my time zone it appeared 10 hours after the day ended. So my first thought was also about "why on April Fools' day?"

Nermal6693 Re:My credit card doesn't run out of batteries (124 comments)

Indeed. My first thought when reading the summary was "how is this any different from swiping an EFTPOS card?". Obviously it's using a phone instead of a card, but the net result is the same.

Rogers Shrinks Download Limits As Netflix Arrives

Nermal6693 Re:Two plans changed (281 comments)

Thanks for linking to the plans; it allows all of the different options to be put in perspective. It also shows that if I lived in Canada, I'd get 125 GB for about what I'm paying here in New Zealand for 40 GB (although Rogers' overage charges are far more expensive). So, I'm afraid that I have very little pity when the Rogers rates are comparatively low.

A GSM-only phone will not work on Telus/Bell. The new network is WCDMA/UMTS-based and does not have a 2G GSM component.

Because a tower is a tower. If you make it tall enough, then you can put multiple sets of equipment up there.
