Linux game-time refined with latest Wine

bass daddy

Surely the point is..

that wine is a serious geek-out for developers.

I know codeweavers and others have made a business out of it but surely it is just the pinnacle of geekdom to work on this (apart from the kernel of course!!)

Knowing how flippin complicated this is I'm always surprised when an app works under wine.

Ubuntu v iTunes: the music playoff for Applephobes

bass daddy

Ubuntu One ...

this has been one big fail for me.

Didn't sync files properly and when I tried to buy some tunes threw up a 500 internal server error....and i got charged!!

If this is to go mainstream then these things must be fixed.

Still dropbox and Amazon for me until they can top the ease of use of these apps.

But this question should be asked

When was it ever a good idea to allow any government to censor what people read?

I don't know about you but I'm an adult and am involved enough with my kids to stop them accessing anything dodgy. I don't need our dear politicians holding my hand when it comes to that.

And please do your research about ID cards and terrorists.

Is filming someone in the street a breach of privacy?

Paris Hilton


If you point a camera at someone because of their weight and then use this in a documentary about fat people then OF COURSE this is an invasion of privacy if you don't gain permission first. How else can it not be? End of!!

Paris? Because she's got a mighty fine booty that should be filmed and included in any documentary about anything at anytime everywhere. Nuff said

Microsoft raises anti-piracy posse

bass daddy

I think not chaps

"Piracy rates for Windows XP are much higher than for Vista, which Microsoft credits to Vista's anti-piracy technology rather than its popularity"

Hmmmmm according to a friend (honest Gov) the latest cracks even allow you to brand your pirated copy of Vista, download the latest service pack and merrily carry on using your machine.

Back to drawing board,eh guys?!!
