Website Simulates Amiga OS

eyeoftheidol This is A Good Thing (45 comments)

Anything that gets AmigaOS in the public eye is a Good Thing, in my book. My main computer is an X1000 running AmigaOS 4.1 and - with a little help from AmiCygnix - does everything I need. The website isn't a new idea, but it's still cool.

Mendeley Acquired By Elsevier

eyeoftheidol Re:Zotero is good (87 comments)

There's now a Word plug-in for Zotero. I use it for my PhD and find it extremely flexible. I have looked at Mendeley but their user support is pretty poor (maybe it is better if you upgrade to a paid account?) and unless you're running a mainstream OS, you are basically s*rewed.

Timberwolf (Firefox) Beta For AmigaOS

eyeoftheidol Alternative approach (96 comments)

Timberwolf on the X1000 can't compare (yet) with Firefox on Wintel, but it's fun (and other browsers are available on the Amiga, including those running under AmiCygnix [YouTube]). And this is a work in development. The more alternatives there are to the mainstream OSes, the better!

Ancient Puzzle Gets New Lease on 'Geomagical' Life

eyeoftheidol Re:New Scientist = odd number fail (73 comments)

Yes, but they want to express it as 3.3^3 to bring out the relationship with a 3.3 shape (ie, a square). (You are reading "3.3" as "3 multiplied by 3", aren't you?)

New UK Initiative - Make Science Easier

eyeoftheidol Re:Test isn't just easy: it's wrong (423 comments)

Mmmm, the answer to 39 in the article is "A".
But like the parent post, I'd got the answer to 34 wrong. I think you're right that the graph is meant to indicate the core starts at around 2800km but it's hardly obvious. What surprised me more was that 1274s wasn't one of the options as I would happily have picked that!

eyeoftheidol eyeoftheidol writes  |  more than 3 years ago

eyeoftheidol writes "A judge in the UK has ordered the ISP BT to block access to filesharing site Newzbin2 within 14 days. From the article: "Wednesday's court order also allows for the blocking of any other IP or internet address that the operators of the Newzbin2 site might look to use to continue to offer copyrighted content to users. In addition the court said BT must foot the bill for the cost of implementing the web block on Newzbin2.""
