Sounds like you'll have a blast bud Have fun! (both of you! )
Ha! Have a great time over there mate!
And don't feel sorry about the weather, as I am in South Africa at that time
is this you endorsing Hyper-v or not? Have been looking to play around with it now that I have the MAPS pack from MS but I've a funny feeling that my hardwre is sadly lacking... ah well, I'm sure the world doesn't need an Agro who knows what he's barking on about.
Well said mate.
In The Netherlands we don't have such a thing yet, but there are rumors...
One advantage though, things like this makes you more aware of politics, and that never hurts. You might not be able to change the system, but you can inform yourself and make yourself heard.

I used it with my last phone - a htc touchscreen erm. spv.
I completely agree - it's by far the best mobile browser. It's actually pretty decent on our Wii too - although i think that's a different Wii specific version.
Been using it for ages, works great!
'tis on my much older brick, works a treat
I may put this on my nokia brick . And I think a mobile skin could be made during easter holidays
And I forgot to talk about the original topic... interoperability or "let ME choose what player I use to play MY movie, thanks".
Absolutely right. I *hope* we'll scoff at today's situation someday, but I'm not holding my breath.
It's infuriating how DRM harms the most exactly the wrong people: those who have actually paid for the product.
Back in the day, when I used to buy music CD's, I made the decision never to buy a copy-protected CD, even if I loved the band in question. In part because the copy protection systems actually work, for people without much clue about how to circumvent them (ie: those of us trying to make a fair use of our discs) and I've always played my music from a computer, not a CD player. And in part because I felt somewhat insulted: I could just download a bunch of mp3 files but instead went to the store, just to find out that the people I was about to give my money to considered me potentially guilty of theft? OK thanks, I'll save my money for blank CD-Rs or a new hard drive and you just lost a loyal fan.
As for movies today, I used to buy DVDs but now I just feel that any physical form of content distribution is doomed to obsolescence. I look at my DVDs and I know I won't be buying any more of them just as I'm not buying any more VHS tapes. But I'm not even planning to get a blu-ray player. I have an HD-capable media player that can stream video off my local network or read it from USB hard drives. And for the time being, I'm downloading anything I don't care to watch in a theater. Yes, for free.
The day I find some service that lets me download a movie for a reasonable fee and doesn't try to regulate how many times or with how many players do I watch it, or whether I lend the movie to a friend, I'll be happy to pay again for watching movies at home.
What I don't understand is how media companies still don't realize that those unwilling (or unable) to pay will not pay, no matter how strong the DRM. And that many are willing to pay if the process is simple and more or less cheap. iTunes, Steam and others have already proven that if the cost is reasonable, many prefer to pay over the hassle of searching for a torrent or elink download with uncertain results.
Wow, long post. I should be heading to bed.
I did have a linux css server up on a VirtualBox VM for a while which was working properly except for the virtualbox ports and firewall rules which I couldn't work out so it remained rather isolated.

The price was ok for me as I read it on the author's website for free
Check it out here, In the Beginning was the Command Line
BTW if you're interested in the Unix philosophy a good read is The Art of Unix Programming by Eric S. Raymond. It's more of a guide of why things are done in a certain way, than the typical programming book with source code examples and reference that get outdated in a couple of years.
As for starting with Linux, maybe you should try giving it a go inside a virtual machine; that way you can never harm anything important and even rollback when things get out of control. Both VMWare and Virtualbox have been able to "take snapshots" of the vm for a long time).
Interesting read. I couldn't agree more. I'm certain we'll look back on these last few years and scoff at the idiotic DRM we've all endured.
It's preposterous that a film format should be operating system specific. It's a great shame that this happenned again, after the experience of Betamax vs VHS - I don't think for one minute the competition improved either format - just caused consumer grief since it seems we're the ones who take the risk when buying new tech.
lol - typical bug fix session then - MS turns out at fault
He doesn't sell them online but here is the website. There are contact details on the site. Some of them I think are excellent but Im probably biased and lucky enough to see him work when I get back to oz.
He retired and one day woke up and had a compulsion to draw fish, after a while it morphed into the wall sculpture he does now.
I take it the art work is the fishies on the wall? If I were to want to get one of them where would I have to go? He got a gallery on-line or at a physical location?
Looking forward to it
I'd agree - from my experience 'life blogging' with AudioBoo - it was a good way to document stuff - helped me alot - blogging is definitely not just about writing or producing media for others - it can be cathartic and useful.
That said - yours sounds like i'm going to enjoy reading it, being a sucker for anything in tech
Sounds like an interesting film. I love John Hurt too Will keep an aye out.
