Re: [Announce] modRana: a flexible GPS navigation system

I thought that was the case already. Or has it been removed at some point? I admit I have not used modRana for a while and do not have it currently installed for a quick check.

Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

When I were a wee lad, my parents used to take us on long hikes. My little sister would get tired/bored quickly and would always ask how far did we still have to go. My parents' answer was always the...

Middle names are not very common where I come from but if they were, "Cynical" would fit me quite well :D

Re: The new QWERTY device project

Yes. Another reason for pushing them to the customers. As big as possible and as thin as possible. The more the customers break the more they have to come back for new ones.

Re: The new QWERTY device project

That objection is purely emotional and not based on anything rational.
Making a screen is cheaper than making a keyboard. That's why manufacturers push large screens down your throat.

Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

Much as I prefer Maemo over Sailfish any day and much as I consider Sailfish a step back from Maemo rather than forward, even I have to concede that targeting Sailfish is the way to go. Maemo is -...

Re: The new QWERTY device project

Some like the vicar, others like his maid. For me, the main advantage of a physical keyboard is not that it is separate from the screen. It is that you can feel the keys before you press them. A...

It sounds to me like what they are really mining for is your personal data.

Re: Retiring from Sailfish OS (For now)

A silly question but sometimes one has to ask the obvious: did you mean,"It only happens on Aquafish with the same SIM card"?
As in, "I have moved the SIM card to another phone, sent an SMS to it...

I am inclined to side with juiceme and blame your provider.

Re: Sailfish API for camera

I had a similar problem once. Not about the camera but that does not matter. The only documentation I found was waaaaaay too high level for my needs. I ended up giving up. Life is too short.

Re: "Unable to perform operation. Try again."

That reminds me of a reader's letter to some IT magazine I read years ago.

The sender was describing how the management at their company were deciding on the name for the new bug tracking system....

Re: DOSBox 0.65 ... ftw

Thanks for your reply. I thought I had fixed it at least once by the battery out trick as you say but until you said it, I was not sure I was not imagining it.

Now it is very much permanent. I...

Re: DOSBox 0.65 ... ftw

Yeah, I am suspecting a corruption due to an unexpected reboot, which was only indirectly related to DOSBox (when I had to reboot due to unresponsiveness).

How did you fix it? I would rather not...

Re: Idea: Split Keyboard Bluetooth Attachment

You keep just the phone in the pocket. The keyboard it clips into can be in the bag and used only when required and convenient.

Neither do I. But anything that snaps to the unit properly is better than magnets.
