Guitar Hero World Tour Won't Allow Copyright Infringement

Synonymous Bosch Re:My impression about what is so cool... (92 comments)

Need the right hardwareand/or the right coniguration of the software, it sounds like.

I've got a fatality platinum (the input is just too handy, and the price was right) and have no noticeable latency whatsoever; it's good enough to play live with other musicians.

The default settings were completely inadequate and my latency was terrible, but a little googling showed me where i was going wrong and now i'm pretty happy.

only gotcha is ive got vista x64 (4GB ram, still have free slots) and there's STILL not drivers for the Kontrol (I bought the HW version) after more than a year of promises from NI.

It's still fine to use the software side, I just get no floor unit to interact with my presets (bummer).

So there's my only complaint - Native Instruments completely inadequate development cycle/support.

Synonymous Bosch writes "According to news.com.au, The Northern Territory Department of Education, Employment and Training will be trialling OLPC devices early this year. The Department has previously rolled out a Redhat Enterprise Linux based network with 200 servers, using OpenLDAP, SAMBA, Squid and PostFix to provide directory, file, internet and mail services to all students and teachers in the State.

The Northern Territory covers an area the size of Texas, with a population of 200,000 people, 40,000 of them students. Many of the 192 schools in the state are only accessible by air, making support of hardware at remote schools an expensive and complicated endeavour.

Many of the states schools cater to small, underprivileged indigenous communities where Television and Electricity are valuable commodities, let alone Computers. Historically, these communities have been all but ignored — perhaps now students can be exposed to opportunities taken for granted in larger population centres. It makes a good, but unusual, case for the use of OLPC devices in developed nations."
