I say if you willingly hand your phone to a police officer, you should assume that he will snoop through it. But as long as it's just an option, and not required, then I don't mind the choice being there.

This is an ad for Android, but it's also a pretty good Animal Friends video:

eleman beat me to it. I have purchased apps on the Google Play store once and have been able to use the purchases on both my phone and my tablet simultaneously.
Just to be perfectly clear; does that mean that if I uninstall a utility purchased through the Google Play Store, either through the Play Store itself or via Settings, I can come back at some later date and reinstall it without further payment?

Yup, once you buy something on the Play Store, it's yours forever.

There are some possible exceptions: Consumable in-app purchases (IAPs) and subscriptions (which I believe also count as a form of IAP).

@Deo - like it even if it drifts dangerously close to hip-hop in places. She reminds me a little bit of Blossom Dearie with her vocal styling. Be fun to hear her with a real big band.  Thmbsup

Agreed. I'm not a fan of rap or hip-hop in general. That said, I'm occasionally OK with things that are close to it if mixed well with something else I enjoy. Though, to the best of my memory, "Back It Up" is the only song that has anything close to hip-hop on that album. (Though I've been told I have a poor idea of what exactly constitutes hip-hop.)

Here's another one from Caro Emerald:

Windows 10 for RPi 2 isn't what people think it will be. From what I've heard, it will essentially turn the device into an Arduino with an MS-DOS prompt. You wouldn't want to use it for anything other than development testing anyway.
33  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: wierd mouse click problem on: February 05, 2015, 01:08:28 PM
Sounds like a common problem I've experienced with Logitech mice. Eventually the clicker wears out and starts double-clicking occasionally when you only click once.

That was my first thought too, but I don't think it's just Logitech that is susceptible to this behavior. I've had several different brands of mice (granted mostly MS, but there were others), and all of them died the exact same - ^this - way.

I figured it probably wasn't unique to Logitech, but they're the only brand I've used for the past 15 years or so. That is, until I bought my most recent replacement last year. Now I'm using a barebones $7 Amazon Basics mouse. I decided that if this one fails after a short amount of time, it will be much easier to replace than my $60 mouse I was using before.

That said, you can buy replacement parts and solder them into your mouse. If you're up for that kind of thing. (c: You can buy a bundle of them for a few bucks on eBay.

How about some Caro Emerald?

She's got an interesting mix of 20s-40s swing, jazz, and big band(?), along with some modern elements. I'm personally not a fan of swing, and I especially don't care much for jazz, but I really like this stuff:

Sounds like a common problem I've experienced with Logitech mice. Eventually the clicker wears out and starts double-clicking occasionally when you only click once. Every Logitech mouse I've owned in the past 10-15 years has eventually experienced this issue. One mouse started exhibiting this kind of behavior after only a couple of weeks!

I'd love Logitech if their hardware didn't wear out in 1-3 years.  Angry

^ Ok, now that's hilarious!  Reminds me of the newlywed show episode where they were asked "Where have you wanted to make whoopie that you've not had the chance."  Of course, the answer was supposed to be a place... but one of the wives said "In the butt".  Hilarity ensued.

A little home render farm would be fantastic for 3D design and such ([...] especially if I made the farm portable!)

Or your own little render farm in the cloud. (c:

39  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Raspberry Pi's $35 Linux PC on: February 03, 2015, 10:24:43 PM
The Raspberry Pi isn't a tablet. It's a little credit card sized computer board (without a case). You have to provide your own keyboard, mouse, monitor, wifi, SD card, HDD, etc., if you want those things.

Also, the architecture (for Pi 2) is ARMv7, as opposed to x86 (or x86_64), which means you can't run Windows on it. And even though the Pi 2 will have some stripped down version of Windows 10 available for it, I suspect it won't be what you might think, (e.g., you probably won't be able to run any .exe file on it like you'd want to).

But if you were to install a flavor of Linux on something like the $35 ODROID-C1 (Quad core 1.5Ghz, 1GB RAM) you just might have a nice little portable computer replacement.

40  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: how do I disable FF Synch or whatever it is? on: February 03, 2015, 10:05:01 PM
I've found that Firefox Portable will still use the default Firefox profile location. Meaning it doesn't matter how many copies you make of it, they're all using the same profile on your computer. I found this out when I downloaded Firefox Developer Edition Portable and it wouldn't run while I had Firefox Portable also running, because "the profile was in use."

(see attachment in previous post)
The $35 credit card sized computer just got much faster

The article says it will be able to use a version of Windows 10 from Microsoft. Would this ruin it?

Just for reference, this was mentioned in this post:

Raspberry Pi 2 out now; includes support for Windows 10

The Windows 10 that runs on it will be very much stripped down. Not at all what regular folk are used to, methinks.

Arrgh, why can't I delete my own messages??  I obviously wanted to post only one message, the one right before this one.  I apparently hit some wrong button, and trying to deal with that only made it worse.   Sad

This ability was removed a few years ago when someone went on a binge deleting their messages to burn the earth when they left. 

Huh? huh

Thanks for that... I'm checking it out... but I think I'm all in. smiley

  Oh yeah, I'm ALL IN with the non-refundable $1000.  Now for the hard part, waiting for it to come off the assembly-line.....   cheesy

The only two things I still have to research are the maintenance/parts and acceleration.  If they're in high demand and your car needs a part... are you going to be able to get it?  Are there going to be mechanics certified to work on it, or how easy/hard is it to work on?  Especially with those exposed wheel mounts.  And they mention top speed... but not acceleration...

Anyone who paid/reserved for an Elio car... Have they given you any updates? 2014 came and went as AFAIK nobody has gotten an Elio 2014 model. Are they releasing this year for sure? Next year? Or is it vaporware?

Let’s get the good stuff out of the way above the fold. Raspberry Pi 2 is now on sale for $35 (the same price as the existing Model B+), featuring:
  • A 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU (~6x performance)
  • 1GB LPDDR2 SDRAM (2x memory)
  • Complete compatibility with Raspberry Pi 1

Because it has an ARMv7 processor, it can run the full range of ARM GNU/Linux distributions, including Snappy Ubuntu Core, as well as Microsoft Windows 10.

I couldn't get it to compile. Got an error about netdb.h not existing. On a relatively fresh/vanilla install of Mint 17.1 Cinnamon.

I ran "apt-get install build-essential" and then it compiled. Not vulnerable. Yay!

Thanks for the warning.

Aside: Maybe you should change the thread title to include "ghost" to make it easier to find in search results? (You can also change your "quote" tags to "code" tags for it to more accurately preserve code formatting in the ghost.c source.)

Both of them told me "This video has been removed because it is too long."

I guess you need to upload more (<10 minute) videos to have that restriction removed.

I don't see such an option. Maybe I still have an older version, but I think it updated today on Google Play.
