You Got Your Windows In My Linux

jaminJay Re:What's wrong with Windows Server? (613 comments)

If you background the cp process like I'm now imagining we're suggesting systemd does, then I follow, otherwise you're describing expected behaviour.

You Got Your Windows In My Linux

jaminJay Re:What's wrong with Windows Server? (613 comments)

I thought it returned nothing if it succeeded and displayed a message for any other exit mode (just like a UNIX command should)?

Nintendo Posts Yet Another Loss, Despite Mario Kart 8

jaminJay Re:I owned a WiiU for 1 month..... (203 comments)

The quick start feature has been mentioned elsewhere, but you can now control the menu, as well as other apps that were restricted to the GamePad and Stylus such as eShop and Internet Browser, with Wii Remote or Pro Controllers.

Who controls the HVAC at work?

jaminJay Put a Damn Jumper On! (216 comments)

My primary peeve is people who get cold and turn the air conditioning off and I start sweating. You can rug up, I can't take my last layer of clothing off (even then, it probably wouldn't be enough)!

Nintendo Announces 2DS Handheld — Plays 3DS Games In 2-D

jaminJay Re:Nintendo's taking a lot of flak for this... (156 comments)

I did see that on some images when I was looking for it later. I was only this evening marvelling at how thoroughly the design team refine their products, such as the tripod mount point on the back of the GamePad.

Nintendo Announces 2DS Handheld — Plays 3DS Games In 2-D

jaminJay Re:Nintendo's taking a lot of flak for this... (156 comments)

If you include Zelda: The Phantom Hourglass, which requires you to close the clam-shell to continue past the first third of the game, it could be said that it does limit content...

Also Red Hat JBoss, Apache and Jenkins CI, etc. Quite a few pies, but I haven't noted many installations that use Crowd.

Australian Government Rejects Data Retention Law After Report

jaminJay Re: They already DO store all data (153 comments)

I wondered if I'd missed a meeting or two, until you said we gaol people for not voting. it's a small fine which would expire with the statute of limitations before SPAR would try to incarcerate you for it.

Google Security Expert Finds, Publicly Discloses Windows Kernel Bug

jaminJay Re: Target Microsoft (404 comments)

According to the Jargon File, it implies that you won't design software that no-one wants to use. Instead, you design software that everyone wants to use and then Spring Clean it away!

Google Security Expert Finds, Publicly Discloses Windows Kernel Bug

jaminJay Re: Seriously, (404 comments)

Agree. The level of computer support I provide family members does not vary between Linux, Mac, Windows, Android, iOS, etc. This is a tired trope that needs to die.

Wii Street U Uses Google Maps to Create 'An Immersive Experience' (Video)

jaminJay FUD and Desperation (84 comments)

It seems that a lot of people are generating FUD, again, because they want the system to fail.

The system is great, the games we have so far are fun, and that's probably about the same purchase rate as on the Wii. We have a PS3, but that is only used for watching movies, which I never thought would be the case. The games just aren't compelling.

The Wii U will do fine, and will sell many units when the 'big' Nintendo titles release.

Can the Wii U Survive Against the PS4 and Xbox One?

jaminJay Re:The market is speaking ... (335 comments)

The Wii did not play DVDs unless you modded it. The Wii U is now the only console that gets used in my house, and we still have all of the old ones hooked up and ready to go if desired. (Actually, the PS3 gets used for watching movies, but has been used for games only when trying the bundled games that one time). Also, the recent updates have fixed most of the other issues you complain of.

Raspberry Pi Computer on General Sale

jaminJay jaminJay writes  |  more than 2 years ago

jaminJay (1198469) writes "Over at BBC News, the Raspberry Pi (a credit card-sized PC for teaching children to program) has been announced as officially on sale.

[W]hile production remains overseas, deals with two distributors, Premier Farnell and RS Components, mean that production volumes will be able to grow much faster than previously thought.
Rather than the foundation having to fund production, distributors have agreed to handle orders and deal with manufacturers paying the foundation a royalty on sales.

BBC to Further Infuriate ISPs?

jaminJay jaminJay writes  |  more than 6 years ago

jaminJay (1198469) writes "After recently aggravating British ISPs by encouraging increased bandwidth usage through their iPlayer service, the BBC has announced that Wii owners will be able to access the service through a new channel on Nintendo's flagship product.

This comes only a month after the BBC launched a version of the iPlayer for Apple's iPhone. Speculation of Sony and Microsoft's chagrin are sure to abound."
