Re: Rostelecom investment in Jolla

Oh dear. It seems I may have offended a sentiment or two. But then, I did not like Interstellar (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interstellar_(film)) either, despite glowing reviews and endorsements ;)

Re: Rostelecom investment in Jolla

No, thanks. The first book was good, but it was written as a one-off, not the first in a series. I would only be disappointed.

The film was OK-ish, or would have been if I had seen it in 1985....

Re: Rostelecom investment in Jolla

Four+ books? I'm totally behind, I've only read the one :) Good one it was too. The film they made out of it was a complete rubbish. Just like Space Odyssey.

Not that a company support is the panacea.

Ahh, but that's how it all started. By the assertion that "freedom" is an illusion, borne from implicit and explicit, known and unknown limitations.

Besides, I was replying to one specific...

Yes. Back to the topic.

That's not what my Marxism-Leninism teachers told me. They said that freedom is the recognition of necessity. I kinda agree with that. As I do with another quote, completely different, politics is...

Re: [Giveaway] Intex Aqua Fish (ended)

I don't understand why it is so difficult to get across. I thought it was obvious but apparently not. Unless some people are being obtuse on purpose. Or indoctrinated.

Of course not! (I was wrong, BTW, it's only 7 years (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motorola_Xoom) old.)

Such as Sailfish :D

I would never have expected to agree with any Dave's post with the s-word in it, but that is precisely what I do now. This whole thing smells dodgy. Approach with caution.
