Re: Maemo 5 Reveals its Features

Man, as long as it runs Python & pyGTK, has a nice high-resolution screen, couple-days battery life and fits in my pocket, I don't care if it runs by magical fairies.

All the docs under http://maemo.org/development/documentation/apis/3-x/python-maemo-3.x/ are gone.

The tables of content are still there, but if you click any of the links, you get a 404.

Yup. Sucks to be him! Tip for the future: "don't forget your password."

Honestly, I can't see how someone forgot their password for something as commonly used as a screen-lock. That's why I agree...

Re: Got cheated via paypal! Need help please

FYI, this is why you use a CREDIT card and not a DEBIT card. You're not protected against this stuff with a debit card, and it's a much steeper uphill battle. With a credit card, you're automatically...

Re: The Case for a Pocketable Server

I've got Solitaire... that pretty much satisfies my gaming interest on something as small as an N800.

Private message spam?

So I got a pointless new PM from someone that hasn't posted and just joined, and is little more than "HI" with a website address in the sig. It looks like spam. Anybody else getting this?

Re: can the '08 GUI be ANY crappier?

Re: can the '08 GUI be ANY crappier?

Thumbs down can the '08 GUI be ANY crappier?

Man, if I had looked at an N800 with this GUI, I would have left it on the shelf.

What's up with the menus you can view from the Google mapping satellites? Is there anything you can do to fix...

Re: Best gps Receiver(Nokia n800)
