Ouya Teams Up With XBMC
I have two questions for the XBMC Android folks:
1. Where can I donate? XBMC rocks and I'm long overdue :)
2. Where can I get fresh builds of the Android port? I can't wait to fire it up on my Google TV!
XBMC Gets a Dedicated Remote
I'll buy one. Would really appreciate it if it had an "Info" button though - that screen is such a pain to get to with most remotes.
Some Early Adopters Stung By Ubuntu's Karmic Koala
I run Ubuntu on 4 computers in my house, and on my laptop at work. I did a fresh install on my main workstation of Ubuntu Studio 9.10 x64.
I've had several serious issues, and I'm considering downgrading to 9.04. Occasionally nautilus will switch from clearlooks to what looks like a default theme, with larger fonts. It's distracting to say the least. When I reboot, my dual monitor setup reverts to single monitor mode.
While those are pretty minor problems, I'm concerned that there might be more issues under the hood.
Ubuntu 9.10 Officially Released
Anyone know where to get a torrent for Ubuntu Studio 64? The Ubuntu Studio site only links to the cdimage server.
Nokia's Maemo Switching To Qt
I'm an n800 owner and this is the first I've heard of Mer... What exactly is it? Is it a replacement OS? It looks like it's somehow related to Ubuntu MID. Is it stable enough that I should install it? Is it backwards-compatible with Maemo apps?
Sorry about all the questions, but I've been anxiously awaiting some cool activity in Maemo-land!
Linux Boxee Users Get Hulu Relief
Any word on a 64-bit version for Linux? I followed instructions from a boxee forum post to get it working on my Ubuntu Studio 64 box and never really got it to work...
Apparently you can't just compile the source because there are some closed-source components.
Ubuntu 9.04 Released
I just installed the RC the other day, and unfortunately I've seen several crashes and freezes - mainly when switching users and when trying to run Boxee and Sauerbraten.
XP Reprieve, Downgrade May Continue After Win7
I just ordered a 64-bit system from Dell and they wouldn't offer it with XP (probably because it would never recognize the full 8G of RAM that I installed on it).
But now I'm stuck - I need to get a copy of XP Pro 32bit (I'll run a 64-bit linux on the machine as well). Google Products lists XP Pro for as low as $24. Is it safe to buy a copy of XP from any vendor? Or should I just buy from Dell?
Recession Pushes IT To Find New Value In Old Gear
I'd love to find a place to get LCD panels with dead pixels on the cheap - perfect for a server-in-the-closet...
Discuss the US Presidential Election & the War
I caught a piece on NPR this morning stating that there had been a McCain in every American war. They said that McCain had a very real understanding of how war affects Americans.
I would take that a step further - I think McCain has a distorted view of the American military. He has been raised to believe that everyone should be prepared to sacrifice their lives for whatever political issue leads us to war. That's way out of step with most of my friends. I believe that the government should use military force only when absolutely necessary.
I also believe that mankind has evolved enough that we can (mostly) end war. You might think that this sounds naive, but I have faith in the goodness of humanity and the power of the human mind. I don't dispute that there are still times when force is necessary, but I aboslutely believe that an immediate and significant reduction of armed conflict can be achieved in the very near future.
