I believe there are absolute limits to human ability, and that there are phenomena in the universe that are not susceptible to scientific investigation, however advanced our tools become.

If we set such goalpost at first while making any theory and then try to base our assumptions thereafter, then it doesn't become critical thinking theory but more of theory based on beliefs and the goal post always changes when any proof threatens the goalpost placed earlier. Such reviews then become biased rather than critical. If the root of any theory isn't challenged it becomes biased and more personal.

There is one series called otherland on amazon kindle. It has some interesting future-based scifi plot.

I am managing the email better with the outlook these days. I tried fastmail and older eudoramail and they were not bad compared to gmail.

1 year 6 months and counting, no firewall and anti-virus needed so far on ubuntu. I am using few windows apps via Crossover (got it from the last novembers giveaway. Tired of linux is not ready for desktop rants, tbh. If you are using computer mostly for browser and few stuff here and there, then I don't think switching to linux ( or mac) is that hard.

By the way dreamwidth.org and livejournal are free blog hosting sites too. They have same interface, hard to learn but once you learn it is easy to post on them.

I personally think tumblr is the most simple when it comes to website and blogging.

The one thing to keep in mind with tumblr, is that it's full of porn.  Why does that affect you?  If you don't have a custom URL, you'll be blocked some places just because you have a tumblr address.
Porn blogs are marked as nsfw, and can be fitlered from the stream inside the tumblr news and also never came across places where tumblr is blocked. Which are these places that blocks tumblr? I never knew tumblr porn was that bad. I guess i never come across hardcore stuff, due to my feed being bombarded with comics from "cyanide and happiness" and other comic strips.

I found weebly and wetpaint more complex than wordpress.

35  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Where Is Windows 8.1? on: May 14, 2013, 04:10:07 AM
I wonder if Windows 8.1 is going to rely more on cloud based services compared to previous operating system. Atleast on the tablet side, noticed few reviewers commenting about their restriction of limiting people to use app store for even free application installation.
36  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Some thoughts on the Project Wonderful Ad Network and web advertising in general on: May 14, 2013, 04:07:46 AM
I came across two ad networks that I think are much better than Adsense but they are CPM based (monthly banner sales type).

1) Passionfruit Ads
2) Carbon Ads ( you can see their ads on duckduckgo).

One question to mouser: As large percentage of the DC readers or surfers are likely to be ABP(ad block plus) users, have you noticed the difference in ad views vs traffic numbers? Or you see less number of ABP users?
37  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Ghost - a new "just blogging" platform now fully funded on Kickstarter on: May 03, 2013, 07:58:08 AM
Wordpress is good because the deployment on the server is easy and hosted platform is also free and easy to use. If the ghost can do that then well, it would be better. but if the ghost is built on something like rails or say node.js then I dont think there would be more takers.

Oh well, back to CPM ads cheesy

I think viglink or skimlinks are much better ads compared to Google ads. Atleast you get relevant ads compared to Google adsense. Also the viglink and skimlinks don't have the banner ads. See if that works here.

Purely your own personal opinion. And not a very well considered or provable one.
Since when opinion need to be provable? It's opinion for a reason, not a fact, we are talking about products with taste from consumers, not a meteor 12k light years away from earth that needs proof for it's existence. Besides that comment was for zen, for his comment -"Forget his desktop products, which I think are mostly silly.". If you think I should be giving proof for my opinion, I would love to have proof for products of canonical being silly.

Quote
Incorrect. If that is your interpretation of FOSS you're sadly mistaken. No matter which FOSS license (there are several BTW) you're misinterpreting here.
Not at all. Redhat and many other OSS software providers are using Open source for their own walled garden, many of the open source SAAS services are not available unless user purchase the subscription or license. FSF and GNU never took objection on that part of OSS but more on the SAAS nature of the OSS that restricts people form code. You can go to GNU for that article from stallman. There is a reason why stallman is against OSS. He doesn't oppose paywall, he opposes paywall that restricts the code distribution. If the canonical always distributed the code of their paywall and product behind paywall, on which point you are going to take objection? Community taste of not liking their products? that's just not rational at all.


Quote
Hard to say. You'll need to be much more specific as to what you're talking about him doing - as well as which license you're referring to - before this can be discussed with any degree of intelligence or rationality.
Canonical is not losing grounds on the GPL. They have a community that keeps eye on such things. I would be interested to see even stallman finding violation of GPL from canonical. All the ubuntu code is open, even unity, and few other commercial apps included.

Quote
Again, your own very personal opinion - and not a very well considered or provable one.
Same like my first answer.

1) Give me proof for Canonical violating GPL.
2) Give me proof for canonical products being silly. And also what qualifies for being silly and how one should not be silly, examples etc.
3) What needs to be proven in order to show you how the haters of canonical and unity, don't contribute positive to the growth of respective software other than the attacks on unity, ubuntu and canonical?

KDE spokesperson talking against ubuntu policies just because ubuntu's mobile product is in competition with their kde product, shows nothing but a piss poor attitude to drive away people from ubuntu. That's enough for me to say ubuntu or say canonical is pissing off hardcore community, that dont like design changes, money making model of any other FOSS company.

No. Ubuntu products arent bad its the people who dont like changes. The nature of free and open source license offers him to do that another walled garden. Is he violating gpl? No. Is he pissing off community that hates making money and changes to traditional thinking? Yes.
44  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: From Canonical's drink the kool-aid dept: Unity - sign on, or sign out on: March 07, 2013, 03:23:20 PM
well it's canonical and not FSF and gnu. He pays the bill for the work done at that place. why he should have the same vision like FSF and GNU? I am with him on that. If you can tolerate MS, Apple and others for their corporate stuff, what's wrong if another walled garden comes into this? If you like it use it or leave it.

So I can't sell code from one unit of my company in x country to Y country? I thought internal sales are part of the governments policies.

You need better quota and even 1 mbps is fine for the usage. I don't think we need more than 2 mbps. With unlimited quota, you can go cloud with your data and work and with limited quota, you're basically being frugal with the possibilities with internet.

They did tried to attract PHP developers with their support to WordPress and with Webmatrix program. I think they want web development business back but it seems not many new business are interested in azure and ASP.
