BDSM sex rocks Drupal world: Top dev banished for sci-fi hanky-panky


Re: @Paul

Just as a side note. The majority of prominent feminists in the Drupal community are on Larry's side on this one. Larry himself has done quite a bit to promote feminism and help women rise up the ranks. His private sexual life is kept quite separate from his work as a programmer.

Furious Stephen Fry blasts 'evil' Reg and 'TW*T' Orlowski


Re: He's very good...

He's got a degree from cambridge on english literature and has written some novels that I've been told are quite good from people who are into books. Also he did loads of megally change how sketch shows work (or so I'm told).

Meanwhile he is also one of the first people to own an apple computer which just makes him a massive tech fanboy. So on matters of tech he's just a normal person who is really interested in it.

" SaaS and open source eliminate the second component of this lock-in, but nothing can fix the first part."

Is that true?

Drupalgardens.com is a SaaS for very simple websites but doesn't have data lock-in as you can export your site, code, configuration, content and all and host it on your own set up if you need to. Even business logic stored in the way your site works can be exported.

Now... Drupalgardens is obviously a very basic example and high end enterprise systems are unlikely to go the way of drupalgardens + Drupal. But I dunno if its true that "nothing can fix the first part". If Salesforce were to opensource their whole thing and allow you to run salesforce on your own servers you could essentially get to a point where you could migrate a salesforce site between vendors or host it yourself.

Assange calls for help from … Quakers?


Re: Too much willy-waving all around

I actually was a conspiracy theorists who thought those 5 points. A kind of "Why not just say you aren't going to extradite him" but have been searching for answers like these for a while.

Do you have any sources of any kind?

HTC sues fans for premature unboxing


Man... with samsung phones owning like they are now HTC really can't afford to do this. I mainly go with HTC due to their general acceptance of the xda dev community. So its their attitude towards their fans I like (cause it causes the software to become awesome, or did in the win mob days).

Maybe I'll be going samsung next time...

Or even better motorola! I loved their phones except for the evil not letting you root them thing,

UPDATE: GAGA team hunts down grass-smoking ROBOT



At robotville there was a robot that used a Kinnect and lasers to map out where all the walls were in the room so that they could know where they were relative to their starting position. Don't know if that is overkill though.

Google breaks South African embargo on Dalai Lama


I'm confused... doesn't the final paragraph kind of make the whole point change completely? (I'm criticising the comments more then the article itself).

I mean if its true that he only submitted his visa application on the 20th of sep and its not been rejected only being processed... then the only thinng you can criticise the government on is having a slow beaurocracy....

Doesn't that last paragraph change the tone of the title from "Archbishop onces again fights for the liberty of his people" to "Idiot Archbiship makes a big deal about nothing... world sides with idiot"?

Despite the tone... this post is actually a question, I'm simply confused... Are we assuming the spokesperson in the last paragraph was lying?

Probably not...


Dunno where this will go but that blog suggests nowhere.

Lawyer wants WikiLeaker kept off suicide watch


This is sad

Know this just makes me sad, there is so much attention on Julian Assange whilst nothing for bradley manning.

There doesn't seem anything anyone can really do :(

Drupal 7 dives into machine-readable web

Thumb Up


http://dbpedia.org/About - Seems to use RDFa and I can almost imagine uses of that.

One guy who advises the W3C in the UK at the Drupal 7 launch party showed a website where he could blog about a book and it would automatically pull the front cover image from amazon.

Thumb Up


Go Drupal!!!!

I'm well looking forward to what could seeing what could be done with RDFa. A random google search: http://trends.builtwith.com/cms/TYPO3-Open-Source-CMS suggests drupal is used more then joomla. But I don't trust that site for some reason.

Google axes Jobsian codec in name of 'open'

Jobs Horns

Correct me if I'm wrong


"act is Google already pays other licensing fees for other technology they use within Chrome that is also patented so to say this is about licensing is non-sense."

My understanding is that the problem with H.264 being the codec that everyone uses would be that everyone would have to pay for licensing fees. Google can afford to pay licensing fees so if its only chrome that has to, its fine. But with H.264 I thought if I have a website in drupal that allows users to upload video and then manipulate it (lets say change the bitrate online for example) then I would also have to pay licensing fees just as someone who hosts a website (or distributes my drupal module)

'One-trick pony' Zuckerberg yet to prove CEO worth



It feels a bit wierd when a journalist says "X largely dismissed it as fiction". There are connotations there that it isn't fictitious and that mark is just trying to dismiss himself from it.

But the writer of the film also says its a fictitious account!

Apple threatens Java with death on the Mac

Jobs Horns

Don't understand why people are suprised...

I don't understand why so many (especially opensource) developers love apple so much! In the world of Drupal everyone is on a mac and it seems silly because Apple not only don't promise to "do no evil" this kind of thing like banning java is exactly what they have proven they will do.

Why did the developer spend so much time trying to convert people to mac?

An exceptional analysis again :P!

Wikileaks falls out with human rights groups


Ah crap

Man, it made me so much happier knowing there was a wikileaks in the world. Now they might be turning evil... :(

Thats sad
