Australia OKs Dumping Dredge Waste In Barrier Reef

zeigerpuppy Re: By reef... (277 comments)

Actually, dredge spoil contains fine particles that form a suspension in the water column. They can move a great distance. The main issue here however is the impact of facilitating the burning of more coal. Ocean acidification (from carbon dioxide dissolved/converted to carbonic acid) is a major threat to the reef as coral cannot lay down limestone in acidic waters. The coral has also experienced massive dieback since the 1960s due to rising water temperature, high nutrient sediment from local cane fields and the impact of crown of thorns star fish. Many marine biologists argue that it is already beyond tipping point. Our blind, stupid, climate denying government doesn't seem to believe in the ample evidence. Short sighted politics and crony capitalism is destroying the very resources that our future prosperity is based upon, not very rational economics.

Revolutionary Scuba Mask Creates Breathable Oxygen Underwater On Its Own

zeigerpuppy concept not engineered device (375 comments)

just in case you were wondering, this is not a real device. Interesting concept but this would need to be considerably more bulky to drive enough water through the filters. About 200litres of water needs to be flowed through the device per minute. For a working prototype for comparison see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D23HLDZvX2w which works with a compressor. The poster should make it clear that the device mentioned is not an actual device, nor likely to be feasible without a relatively large pump and power supply.

Tomato is awesome. Open-WRT is also excellent. Check compatability on their sites before buying any router.

Bill Nye To Debate Creationist Museum Founder Ken Ham

zeigerpuppy Re: Excercise in Futility (611 comments)

Indeed, having debated the truth of scripture at length with Christians, I found the "agree until they see the flaws themselves" approach very effective. Releasing people from the chains of these repressive idiologies is possible and worthwhile but don't expect success to begin with!

Bill Nye To Debate Creationist Museum Founder Ken Ham

zeigerpuppy Re: Waste of Time (611 comments)

Not really convinced by the religion doing more good argument either. Lot of wars and division based on religion. And even more hiding their heads in the sand and allowing corrupt leaders to subvert them.

zeigerpuppy Re: Waste of Time (611 comments)

I'm certainly not religious but I do find it interesting that Genesis is actually a pretty good description of creation I you take the days as epochs.

Bill Nye To Debate Creationist Museum Founder Ken Ham

zeigerpuppy Re: Bad call (611 comments)

You ate creating straw men on both sides, resulting in a false dichotomy. An idea of God may be compatible with evolution, it's just that a church preaching incompatibility has painted themselves into a corner. Many scientists believe in a mysterious, unexplained order to the universe, some even call it God. But denying the evidence that is right in front of you is narrow minded to say the least. Don't get dragged into us vs them arguments, the truth will set you free.

Just to clarify, Kune is very open with their code, it's Rizzoma who do not publish theirs, my article was a little unclear on this.

Yeah, it's not great they they are claiming open source and not providing code, let alone an installable version.

So is Rizzoma just a spinoff of Kune?

That's true, my users are relatively computer illiterate. They don't want to learn syntax as much as I do.

zeigerpuppy Re:I'm 40 and what is this? (112 comments)

A good summary of the strengths, thanks for laying out these issues for other readers. I really liked these aspects too. Although I think marketing was not why it got axed. I don't think a federated service fitted with google's philosophy on data, i.e. they want it all going through their serrvers.

zeigerpuppy Re:not dead (112 comments)

Sorry, didn't mean to announce a premature demise, I must admit that I was hoping that wave in a box would be a little more mature by now. (although I have no right to complain, not having contributed any code myself!). As a side note, I guess this is the best spot to try out the code: https://github.com/apache/wave

zeigerpuppy Re:I liked it (112 comments)

I never bought the "lack of uptake" angle that google pushed when they axed it. I think that a federated network is the opposite of what google wants. They want all the juicy bits passing through their servers and the federated model of wave was not good for this. I guess I at least need to thank them for opensourcing etherpad after they acquired that code.

zeigerpuppy Re:Out of curiosity (112 comments)

The major features I am interested in are: real-time collaborative editing, discussion workflow and easy documentation/media integration. As the group's discussions are private, it needs to be self hosted. I prefer open source. Wave ticks the boxes. The closest I have found (and tried installing) is a version of etherpad. I was excited by Rizzoma as it looked like a more general purpose solution but doesn't look very open, unfortunately. I am more of a sysadmin than a developer and will certainly poke my head in to development of projects but I usually need something that has at least the minimal functionality out of the box for my users.

Ask Slashdot: Best way to implement Wave protocol self hosted?

zeigerpuppy zeigerpuppy writes  |  about 4 months ago

zeigerpuppy (607730) writes "It's time to revisit Wave, or is it? I have been looking to implement a Wave installation on my server for private group collaboration. However, all evolutions of Wave seem to be closed-source or experiencing minimal development. I was excited about Kune, but its development looks stalled and despite Rizzoma claiming to be Open-Source, their code is nowhere to be found! Wave-in-a-box looks dead. So Slashdotters, do any of you have a working self-hosted wave implementation?"
