What Do You Do When Printers Cost Less Than Ink?

huwr Average cost per page printed (970 comments)

I guess when buying a printer instead of only looking at the cost of the machine and/or its consumables, it might be worthwhile calculating what the average cost per page printed would be.

Australian ISP Argues For BitTorrent Users

huwr Sue the electricity companies too (207 comments)

It's important to consider that the studios are claiming that ISPs should be responsible for what their customers do with their service. That is, that "iiNet was responsible for customers downloading movies illegally and then burning them to DVD to sell or share with friends." To me, that's the much more interesting matter.

The studios should then sue the electricity companies for providing electricity to people's DVD burners.

Some Of Australia's Tubes Are About To Be Filtered

huwr Needs to pass Parliament first (339 comments)

For this to come into force properly, the Government will need to pass legislation through Parliament. While they can get it through the lower house easily, the Senate will be much harder. In the Senate the Government will need the support of either the Coalition or all the cross-benchers (Greens, Family First and Xenophon) in order to gain the majority. I know the Coalition intends to vote no and I can't see Greens supporting it, so it will fail to pass.

KDE Running on Mac OS X

huwr Good article (393 comments)

A neat article.

However, I can't think really why you'd want to be running KDE on Mac OS X when you already have such a neat (IMHO) interface. I suppose it's good for a laugh, too.
