Now On Video: GCHQ Destroying Laptop Full of Snowden Disclosures

zdzichu Re:Motherboards (237 comments)

NSA certainly bugs ethernet sockets – see .
The amount of destruction on motherboard teaches us a thing: GCHQ destroyed elements they KNOW could be used for storing data/snooping. So we say ”morons”, but they actually are ahead of us in spying. And they expect other intelligences to have similar capacities as NSA/GCHQ.

GNOME 3.8 To Scrap Fallback Mode

zdzichu Re:If they drop non-accelerated support... (378 comments)

It's adequate for big-three (Intel, nVidia, AMD) which solves 95% desktop problems. It's passable for ARM-based platforms. So fallback is needed for 1% of real hardware and some percent of virtual machines. Most virtualisation platforms support 3D accel for Linux.
Besides, how much power do you need to display few textured rectangles?

Kazdy wie jak wyglada liczydlo. To takie prety, na ktorych znajduja sie kulki, sluzace do liczenia. Kulki sa w dwoch kolorach. Dlaczego? Bo czarne sa do rzeczywistych, a czerwone do urojonych ;)


boje sie

zdzichu zdzichu writes  |  more than 11 years ago Tak sobie czytalem Zone Admina... Posmialem sie, posmialem, ale nagle.... ,,wlasnie cos do mnie dotarlo''. NIE CHCE!
Monisia powiedziala, ze dla mnie moze sluchac o tych komputerach (,,Wiec na porcie 25 jest SMTP''). Ale boje sie. Ogarnia mnie strach na mysl o tym, ze moglbym sie z Nia porozumiewac ircujac z komputera w innym pokoju. Ze zamiast widziec Jej promienny usmiech dostawalbym <Monika> :-).
Ze rozmowy z kimkolwiek kto przyszedlby do nas w odwiedziny toczyly by sie sprzed ekranu monitora.
Moge tak dyskutowac z LCFem, msgujac go zamiast przez otwarte drzwi powiedziec o co mi chodzi. Ale nie z Monika!
Monika and computers don't mix.

Blah. I was thinking about starting weblog. Something more ambitious than "I'm completly down", like most of weblogs look like. But - no time. Maybe in summertime I'll write something.

BTW, I've started thinking, that mplayer's guys are good, old hackers.
