cool i didnt know about cranky geeks, that might be worth a new post by you with an image.

I think what may be more appropriate is a 'Tech Podcasts Review'  :D :Thmbsup: I listen to SO many..

*Gets typing*

Developer's Corner / How will Web 2.0 affect desktop applications?
« on: December 12, 2006, 12:42 AM »
We see, every day almost, new web applications spurting up in the so called 'Web 2.0' bubble/boom/phase/development. I just had a thought.. it's probably obvious to ask the question, but how, if at all, will this movement affect desktop software? Has it already?

I have to say I do look to web applications much more these days. But they cannot fulfil every purpose, I guess some desktop software has to stay as a desktop app. For instance ... jesus I'm finding it hard to think of one! Talking as I think now heh. Can anyone think of a desktop application that cannot be ported, now or in the future, to a web interface? I'm struggling! Totally switched opinions since starting this topic...  :mad: :P

I use my browser more than any other app now. Do you? Thoughts appreciated..

OK, it's been awhile since I've dated a 17-year old, but here's tried and true wisdom from an old goat to to a young buck.

What she says: I want a hug.
What she means: I want to know you are paying attention to what I find important and fulfilling and show it in a personal way without material attachments.
So get her something that reflects you have been paying attention to HER world and how you can fit into it, not distance yourself from it.
Example: Don't get her slippers if she constantly says her feet are cold and puts them on you to warm them up. She wants YOU, not some stand-in for your foot-warming capabilities. Definitely get her slippers if the cat piddled on her old favorites and she was very upset about it.

Make sure it's something that only YOU would know and should care about. Whatever you determine is the right gift, make sure her parents and friends don't have the same idea.

If she is always asking to borrow something, don't get her one for herself. Why do you think she borrows it from you?

Don't give her what she needs unless she specifically asks for it, and even then, don't make it her only gift, and worm yourself into it somehow.
Example: If she says she could really use a new coffee maker, get the machine, a couple bags of her favorite roast, a new grinder and scoop and TWO coffee mugs (hint, hint...)

Last but not least, give it with a tag attached that says "Contents: 1 Hug"

Hope this helps.

Wowza chiwowza  :D Thanks so much Edvard! Sound advice!

Printed off accordingly :) Now to hide it so she doesn't happen to come across it  ;D Seriously, thanks so much. Much appreciated DC credits on their way to you as soon as I recover from Christmas expenditure.  :up:

Yesterday the forums were in different orders... not sure if that was purposeful, or indeed the result of sleep deprivation on my part.

Either way I was confuzled  ;D

Living Room / Judgement Day
« on: December 11, 2006, 09:55 AM »
... and the punishment is worse than anything God has to throw at me  :P

Christmas, as I'm sure you are all too painfully aware, involves trawling through shopping centres until 7pm for a week straight, finding the one special person in your life her gift. Because, of course, getting a brown teddy bear has catastrophic results, easily avoided if you had thought to buy the PINK one instead. Idiot. Get out of my house. I don't want to see you again. BROWN? What were you thinking. Sexist pig. Oh, sorry, digressing here...

I need some advice for a new girlfriend  :D I am normally pixel-perfect with this kind of thing, but for *some* reason, it's tough this year. She's a typical young lady from middle England.. loves pink (reoccuring theme here) but all I have got is 'just give me a hug, that's all i want for xmas'.

Like I'm going to fall for THAT sucker again!

Any ideas that spring to mind? She's 17. Feel free to ask for advice for yourself in this thread, communal christmas therapy, if you will  :D

Ty all...

When I found that video on youtube, I considered posting about it but didn't. (got tired or something and really needed sleep)

I am really glad I didn't now, since your post was even better...went to the source of the goodies.

 :)

Glad you enjoy them, app  :) I want to go one day, but a) could never afford it. b) not smart enough to be invited  ;D

Living Room / TED Videos etc..
« on: December 08, 2006, 10:48 PM »
Just thought I would let everyone who isn't aware of it, that TED have a website.. Ted.com  :Thmbsup: (WhoodaGuessdit?) It features videos of many speakers, and there is a blog RSS feed that alerts you to new videos being posted.

For the uninitiated, TED is a conference for 1,000 people per year who are notoriously creative / intelligent. Lot's of technology related stuff there! Not just philosophy. In the way of tech, this video here is fantastic.

Enjoy!

Fantastic as always mouser  :D

Embarrassingly didn't know about the links page.. I do now  :Thmbsup: :tellme:
