There is another post favoring duckduckgo over google search over at cybernetnews.

I like the back!

It depicts the outcome of unchecked capitalism, where people do not cooperate but work against each other for the eventual benefit of one: war and destruction.

There is Cloud 9 IDE which supposedly is a primary Javascript IDE.

Some of my hacker friends quite like it, I have only looked at it from afar, not actually used it. But it doesn't look too bad at all.

there is a setting
[copy or print]
browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick
, maybe it helps when you set it to false.

I have only encountered banshee to do this. None of the other media players I have tried changed files or directories 'behind my back'. I don't remember if you can turn this off.

OTOH if the collection is in really bad shape, a tool like this might actually help sorting the mess.
58  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What's your music player of choice? on: March 23, 2011, 04:22:10 AM
It probably was version 1.6 or 1.7.

Banshee was very delicate with external programs touching media files it had its hands on: deleting, moving, fixing tags, all made it crash but never when I wanted to demonstrate.

Banshee's tag editor had some nice features for mass editing. And you can write scripts that change its album organizing feature, at least one version I had let you do it.

I'd say give it a spin, even though is a bloody fat .net application.

Has anyone tried Banshee?

I have, and it has many features I like, many features that are nice. But it also used to crash suddenly, frequently enough to turn me to rhythmbox or mpd (I can't really decide).

Most of my extensions work, only a few releated to SSL checks did not - but they hadn't been updated in years anyway.

Most importantly, vimperator works flawlessly, as do adblock plus and noscript smiley

I think the GPL applies to a WORK, whatever that is.

And if the GPL doesn't apply, in most countries copyright law will apply which usually grants even less rights than GPL would.

too bad I don't have any equipment to take acceptable photos of the moon, not even a tripod.

Nice to look at other people's photos though smiley Even though some of them are HUGE! Wink

wraith808, you are right of course smiley

Also there are different kind of documentation used or demanded in software development; some of those are useless IMHO, so I applaud "the agile method" for trying to dispose of them.
65  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Firefox 4 RC in 64 bit for Linux on: March 20, 2011, 01:11:53 PM
The same approach should work for the final release. Which should be done RSN!
66  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Software Creators Create Their Own Problems (Vimeo) on: March 20, 2011, 11:23:13 AM
I wonder why agile means "no more documentation"?

[attachimg=1]


I wanted Firefox 4 in 64 bit, just like the rest of my system (except that bloody skype), so I dug and poked and found what I was looking for.

Basically I took the actual download URL and hoped the mirror server would let me browse its directory listings, where I then found the archive.

I didn't watch the youtube clip. I find O'reilly to be too offensive, it is unbearable for me to listen.

I received the kit a couple of years ago. I wonder where all the stickers went that I did not put on my laptop... I'll have to put the badge on a few of my hoodies though, that'll lighten them up (they are basic hacker apparel: black).

Here is the science behind the supermoon, again from scienceblogs.com. For people like me, knowing WHY does not make it any less beautiful, quite the opposite!

And while we are on the moon, there are more interesting facts, a little easier to read.

I was hoping that stuff would be recycled; there is gold in there after all. And lots of poisonous stuff too!

Some of the pictures look a little off though, they seem to lack the basic ingredient of abandonment: dust.

Still I am sucker for pictures of abandoned facilities or post-apocalyptic things; nice find!
75  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / blogpost: 25 Things I Hate About Google, Revisited 5 Years Later on: March 19, 2011, 06:55:50 AM

Five years ago, I wrote a story called “25 Things I Hate About Google.” (...) I thought it was worth revisiting that story on its five year anniversary, to see how many of those “hates” have been fixed.
(...)
In my story below, I’ll provide what I originally wrote and how the situation looks today. Each section will begin “Hate” if things haven’t changed, “Love” or “Like” if there’s been a fix, and there are some “Mixed” and “N/A” along the way.

This article reaffirms my general, vague dislike for google search. I have not really compared google to my favorite search engine duckduckgo. But DDG feels much better than google search.

It's quite an exhaustive revisit, but there is a scorecard at the end, so you don't have to read the whole thing smiley
