I ordered a pint of Worthington's the other weekend, the barman returned with a pint of Fosters. Thankfully he too realised his mistake and promptly supplied the aforementioned pint of bitter.
I wouldn't have thought this would be something The Reg would like to report on, but now I'm not so sure.
I'm going to quote Michael Wright up there as his comment was the most succinct and I feel is getting lost amongst all the posts moaning about lossless compression codecs...
"Dynamic range compression is real, a pain in the ears, and it happens on CDs, so Apple have got bugger all to do with it."
Go ahead encode with FLAC if you feel like it, but the fact is the vast majority of CD's these days already have shockingly bad dynamic range.
Have a read of George Graham's rant on the subject.
Firstly, this is the third beta they've released. The article doesn't make that clear.
Secondly, it does not have "built in virus checking" it makes a call for whatever anti-virus software you have installed to initiate a scan on your downloaded files (other browsers already do this). They know there's problems with this however, hey it's a beta, and there will be the option to disable it.
Thirdly, @Alex Read so you're having a go at them now because they have beta releases? Doesn't all software? By its very nature open source software is developed by the community, it's nothing new that beta releases are available.
I use the latest Firefox 3 nightlies as my daily browser now and have done for some time. There are bugs, there's are things that aren't in there yet, and sometimes it's just plain broken. That's why it's BETA. Expect another beta before we start with the release candidates.
"this creature is able to "see" through walls of dense water obscured by silt and sand... Lobsters have limited image resolution, but possess high sensitivity and the ability to detect fast movement and the polarisation of light."
So how exactly would being able to detect fast movement through water help to detect "hidden contraband" beneath a steel floor for example? It's not April the 1st again already is it?
I'm guessing I maybe had the same problem as the author with my Dell Laptop.
My 7.04 xorg.conf worked fine... but not when I upgraded to 7.10. I could use the "nv" driver but when using the "nvidia" restricted driver (needed for compiz to work), I was just getting a blank screen no matter what I tried in my xorg.conf.
Looking through the startup logs it was detecting two DFP's (the built in laptop screen and DVI connected monitor)... but no matter what I put in the config it was saying the settings for my external monitor weren't valid and instead it "auto-detected" a resolution of 1920x1200... Which is fine for the laptop screen, but too high for my external monitor to display. The only way I managed to fix it was to add...
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT"
...into my xorg.conf, that tells the Nvidia driver to only look for "CRT" monitors. If I then plugged the external LCD in via the 15pin VGA cable it worked perfectly.
I'm still a linux noob but I tried all sorts and no matter what I did it still reckoned the settings for the external monitor were invalid and auto-detected for the laptop screen.
