Living Room / Re: The conflict of interest that is Google

I'm not sure what you're asking here. AdWords is where Google makes it's big money.
Wasn't it the combination of AdSense and Analytics (which is actually not even legal in some countries but no-one really cares)?

Now daSHiZZLE has an interesting view on us, I guess.  :) ;D

He's very resistant to criticism, even when it's intended to be constructive, because he has his own vision of what his program should be, and won't be swayed from it.

Which is not actually bad, as it avoids XY to become bloatware. So that's why we have the choice when it comes to file managers, right?

Depends. You can disable it.  :D

Why should you need that?

What exactly do you want to refresh?

Morning Coffee seems to have some bugs, the "only on certain weekdays" functionality does not actually work for me.

The funny thing in his letter to Adobe is that you can replace Adobe with Apple and it still works.

Apple's products are 100% proprietary. They are only available from Apple, and Apple has sole authority as to their future enhancement, pricing, etc. While Apple's products are widely available, this does not mean they are open, since they are controlled entirely by Apple and available only from Apple. By almost any definition, OSX is a closed system.

Well...  :D

Thank you. Now that was what I was looking for three days ago. Damn.  :)

There's also RssTools. :)

Btw. I've created a wiki for Proto (it's coming slowly...)
... with a shortcut guide. I love you.  :-* (Not literally, but... alright.)

ac'tivAid has a built-in, system-wide hotkey manager, too.  :)

Hi, Miechu.  :D Fine to see you here.
I'm glad that you, at least, think about a written documentation.


And thanks for your explanation of the actual approach. It might be easier to understand now.  :)

privacy is illusion
Only if you let it happen.

I still feel I've nothing to hide.
Do you leave your doors open at night?

I never had to.

C++ might have some difficulties Java does not have; but it all depends on how you are going to work later. Most Java "programmers" don't actually program, they only complete already existing code bases. See, it is also a question of idealism. To me, people who let their IDE generate the boilerplates are, maybe, "developers", but programming is something quite different.

Sure, getting into the finesses is harder in C++. But once you understood why something does what, you are able to work with it. That's what it is all about, right?

If hulkbuster wants to learn how to be a programmer, IDE-driven languages like Java are not the way to go IMO.
(Yep, sure, all Java programmers on DC code with pure Notepad and cmd. Well then. ;-))

it's easy to get lost in language technicalities instead of actually learning programming
Yep, with Java it is easier to "learn programming". There is a library for everything, so basically it is just C&P.
Sooo much better than C++ where you actually have to understand how to code.

(Sarcasm, anyone?)

Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: crack tracker
« on: April 14, 2010, 12:44 PM »
Hehe, yep. I was on the page multiple times when I already had a license, just to check something there.

Concerning the crack tracker:
For pirates this software is not of any interest. I tried to find some software with it, and I noticed that, while it kept reloading, I would already have had the software for a while if I had used eMule instead.

Hmm, Windows is great, so much undocumented stuff left to discover.  :-*

If you are willing to add features and stuff to it, I think it could do everything we're asking for here.
Yep!  :-*

The topic's quote is the reason why all of my browsers are filtering any Google content...

Vista 32-bit on this machine, Debian Linux in a VBox (which would never have a Circle Dock anyway because I don't want my Linux to be a Windows clone), XP 32-bit on the family PC.

Tell us about your experiences then. :)
