GPL'd Driver and Linux Support For New H.264 Capture Card

Vuojo Re:Software / Firmware (119 comments)

From the site: Update: June 7th, 2011 - Several important things to note, the BC-H series H.264 cards do not have at traditional firmware that is loaded. Everything is accessed directly from the driver / user space applications. Secondly, we report sales of each encoder to MPEGLA and pay any necessary patent fees for the sale of each encoder, meaning that any cards purchased from Bluecherry already have the patent protection from MPEGLA for the device level encoder.

I mailed / filed my tax return form ...

Vuojo Re:Non-American Tax Days? (432 comments)

The Finnish system is almost the same as the Swedish one. If your pre-filled tax return looks OK you don't have to do anything. Even the dead line is in May, but it's either 11th or 18th.

Climatic Research Unit Hacked, Files Leaked

Vuojo They flipped Finnish data upside down (882 comments)

There was a documentary about climate change hoax on Finnish YLE channel (it's like BBC of Finland) couple of weeks ago. It basically told that the climate data collected from Finland was turned upside down so that it would show warming instead of cooling etc. People who understand Finnish can check it out from Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1gmJiZfyDPE People who don't understand Finnish can just check these few seconds where they show how they flipped Finnish data: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=suySkDny-zk#t=7m00s

New XBMC Port Promises ARM-Powered HD In the Palm of Your Hand

Vuojo Re:Cheapest (123 comments)

I have never had dropped frames with my box. It has 4GB of memory and I'm using XBMC Live installed on a flash card so there aren't any extra processes wasting CPU time. It would be nice to hear if those who are experiencing dropped frames are using stock Ubuntu installs or XBMC Live installs.

Students Settle With TurnItIn In Copyright Case

Vuojo Re:Who is really hurt by such services? (208 comments)

"Ok, just file a complaint. I'm sure that semi-literate guy did something wrong enough to slap them down."

I love how the Americans think that suing everybody is the best solution for every problem.

Amarok wants to collaborate with rejected Palm Pre

Vuojo Amarok is awesome (1 comments)

Even though 2.1 still misses some of the features that were in 1.4 series of Amarok it is simply the best music player on Linux. I really hope that the new multi platform approach works and people on Windows and Mac will try it out.

Standalone GPS Receivers Going the Way of the Dodo

Vuojo Re:I guess I should prepare for extinction then (422 comments)

I think my Nokia E71 uses the GSM network or something to acquire the lock in a few seconds. Nokias navigation application sucks but the GPS implementation is really good in my opinion.

Wind Could Provide 100% of World Energy Needs

Vuojo Wind Could NOT Provide 100% of World Energy Needs (867 comments)

It just couldn't simply because there isn't wind all the time and we don't have any realistic way to store energy for calm days. Wind could be useful as a part of the energy production but with current technology there is no way wind could be used as the only energy source.

New Exploit Uses JavaScript To Compromise Intranets, VPNs

Vuojo Re:IPv6? (87 comments)

I would think so. It seems like everyone is using either or subnets and once in a while somebody has set up subnet so your internal addresses wouldn't be that hard to guess. With IPv6 we could forget all this NAT crap and use "real" IP addresses.

Acer To Launch 3D Notebook In October?

Vuojo Re:"convert regular 2D movies to 3D" (135 comments)

Exactly. These "3D" systems have been coming for decades and in the end they have been total crap. I believe when I see one with my own eyes.
