Re: EU votes and it very well will change the internet as we know it.

Fixed that for you! ;)

That depends on who "the state" is in this context.
If "the state" is a community of people then you're totally right, but if it's just some bureaucratic entity then it...

Re: EU votes and it very well will change the internet as we know it.

Good point!

Not sure, if "hash" is the right term here. If you have some checksum algorithm in mind (md5, sha), then you'll end up with a lot of false negatives and virtually no false positives,...

Re: EU votes and it very well will change the internet as we know it.

There is a statement on upload filters at openstreetmap.de [1] (in German) that mentions some sort of "Wikipedia exception".
I don't know what that's supposed to be, but I believe the EU parliament...

Re: Missing benchmark application for Sailfish os

This only benchmarks the ALU of a CPU, which might introduce a misleading bias.

For example, the first Atom CPUs, while having a comparibly low clock rate, were actually not bad when it came to...

Re: [Request] Need a FPS game(Non Emulated native)

Re: [WTS] Nokia N900 | EU Only

In my opinion, the most convincing feature of this particular N900 is the qwerty keymat with four cursor keys, which also seems to be in pretty good condition.

Too bad, the photo isn't focussed...

Re: Purism Librem Phone

Well, exactly that's the problem. This statement about reducing the desktop resolution for temperature reasons makes absolutely no sense.

Re: Purism Librem Phone

Re: Purism Librem Phone

The same is true for a 1:1 pixel ratio. So this doesn't count as an argument for the 2:1 ratio.

With all due respect, I believe that's a made-up argument that one of your tech guys mentioned as a...

Re: Purism Librem Phone

I wouldn't say that. At the native resolution, the Librem5's DPI is only slightly higher than that of the N900, but scaled by factor 2 it is much lower:N900 (3.5" 800x480): 266.56 PPI

720/2=360; 1440/2=720

Basically what they do is take a 2x2 square of hardware pixels and treat it like 1x1 pixel in software. It's like scaling up a picture in a picture viewer by x2 of if you...

Then why don't you just do that? Listen (read carefully)!

Re: Purism Librem Phone

I'm kind of scratching my head here. :confused:

So they build a device with almost twice the screen diagonal of the N900, (due to scaling) they still have a lower resolution, and on top of that...

This part is true ...
