  1. For my kindle 4, PDFs are not displayed clear, so I decided to use Calibre to convert them to .mobi They usually turn out good now. If anyone has a better method, please let me know.
  2. BBC http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-17894176 Slashdot http://yro.slashdot.org/story/12/04/30/1524216/uk-isps-ordered-to-block-pirate-bay?utm_source=feedburnerGoogle+Reader&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Slashdot%2Fslashdot+%28Slashdot%29&utm_content=Google+Reader
  3. Getting mine at the end of April. :)
  4. I got up in time for the launch at 6am, but only got 'express an interest' on RS Components. Farnell's site died, but they sorted it out later during the day and I managed to express my interest on their site too.
  5. What does everyone think of this? Lulz Security hackers target Sun website: http://tinyurl.com/3slvlju A group of computer hackers has tampered with the website of News International-owned The Sun's website.
  6. Temporary. (I'm still trying to figure out window tiling..)
  7. This is bloody fantastic, thanks!
  8. Whatever language you decide to learn, the best thing to do will be to stick to it. I've been trying to learn how to program in C++ and C for over ten years, but stop after a while due to other priorities. I now regret not putting programming at the top of my priorities..
  9. ^ Some owners of said cars don't even pay taxes, so I would rule out charity donations altogether..
  10. I know its not May in some countries yet, but it is in the UK. 02:30 :P
  11. I'm attempting to upgrade my 10.10 powerpc to 11.04, and hoping for the best. I haven't ever used upgrade before, but I backed everything up.. Just in case. I'll have to stick to 'Ubuntu Classic,' as I don't think the new Unity interface will work on an old G4 processor.. Also, you should rename this topic to Ubuntu 11.04 + PSN Hack. Just a thought.. [Edit] Yup, had to switch to Ubuntu Classic, but the upgrade went well. [Edit 2] Uh oh, it won't restart and freezes..
  12. What does everyone think of the second episode?
  13. My one is in a bit of a mess this month..
  14. Anyone know a decent feed aggregator? I'm running Ubuntu powerpc on an old mac mini. Thanks. [Edit] Having issues with Rnews, install works. Error page on creating a new user. [Edit 2] Well, I managed to figure it out myself (that's a big achievement for me ) I've set up Tiny Tiny RSS Had some permission problems, but managed to sort it out with these: chmod -R 777 icons chmod -R 777 lib/htmlpurifier/library/HTMLPurifier/DefinitionCache/Serializer

    ^ Trip has made a good point. Practice practice practice. Make sure you have lots of time, and don't fart arse around, (like me) or you will not get anything done.
  16. http://tinyurl.com/67xmzat This is all I know about 4g in the UK. It will start after the digital switchover is complete (when analogue tv will no longer exist :( )

  18. I want one :) ..I don't have an iphone, though..
