Organized Online, Students Storm Gov't. Buildings In Moldova

b100dian Re:The riots of 2005 in France we're powered by bl (199 comments)

Several thousands moldovans it's like 50% of the country's young people atm. It's like millions in New York.

If you do that, you will lose the survivors too (they will move to Romania, Ucraina or other countries).

Again, if you do that, the elders will still replace you. And you will die in pain.

As spectator sports go, video games are no match for the football terraces or the racing stands. But Microsoft hopes to change that by giving its video games a "dynamic spectator mode", in which the footage is streamed to a third party who becomes a virtual observer but takes no part in the action.
Read the full dynamic spectator mode patent application.
Question: can you mention at least one existing game that already has this?"

Besides adding desktop icons, introducing Thunar (en lieu of xffm) and MousePad, applications that are as simple as effective, Terminal that has built-in support for desktop composition (which is supported by the window manager out-of-the-box), it also introduced (finally!!) shortcut for the pop-up menu (you can see in the tour that Ctrl-Esc is binded to this menu)!!.
Congratulations for the lightest and slickest window manager ever:)"
