Re: Nokia signs brand and intellectual property licensing agreement with HMD global

Nokia logo on a new phone? I'm sure that would be like a Polaroid logo on a new camera (http://www.polaroid.com/products/polaroid-snap-camera). (Or tablet...

Re: Recovering an AP password already in use on N900

Technically, you don't event need a command line. Just do this:

Turn on on-screen keyboard (set to on when slider closed)
Open slider and edit wifi connection
Select password field

Re: [Pre-Pre-Pre Announce]Black Aluminium replacement body & backcover for N900

Which is precisely why I did not put my name in the hat. Even with two of the members being viable candidates (IMHO) for work done outside of council, the perception of impropriety was enough that I...

Re: [Council] Referendum 2015

I've seen that, but I'm still not seeing where Council can take on responsibility for things they demand done. There are plenty of things that are legal to do that can still have consequences. For...

Re: [Council] Referendum 2015

I was one such vote. I did so because I've seen what trying to integrate Council into a legal body can do from my experience with HiFo. I still believe that nothing good can come from mingling a...

Thumbs down Like a Kickstarter gone bad...

I don't think a bump will help at this point.



As time moves on, this prediction (from 14+ months ago) seems to be inching closer and closer toward being a sad reality.

Re: The [Almost-Completely :D] Pain-Free Maemo Development OS for Ages 9 to 99

You may want to check what file system you're putting them on. FAT based systems (default for MyDocs on an N900) can only handle files up to ~2G. These ISO need to be stored on a non-FAT storage...

Re: [Announcement] Fundraiser for "Maemo" Trademark registration

Nobody is saying we should renew trademarks for everything on the planet. The only things being discussed are the existing TM rights transferred to us from Nokia, and if/how we should handle renewing...

Re: [Announcement] Fundraiser for "Maemo" Trademark registration

Sorry, but that's not how that works. There's no guarantee that we'll get $250K for anything. The real worst case is our trademarks expire, we fail to renew at all, and a company (like MS) comes...

Re: [Announcement] Fundraiser for "Maemo" Trademark registration

I don't think we care if there's a Chinese toy with the same name. In fact, given the TM limitations we already have, such a toy could co-exist already with no issues. The concern is (IMHO) that said...

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

Ah. Thanks. I think I see where the issue is now?

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

I'm saying anyone who blindly takes on legal liability, while giving over the right to control that liability, is not someone you want in the role of Board member.

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

There-in lies the root of the problem. Just as Watts=Volts*Amps, Power = Choice/Liability. To have separation of (or sharing of) power, one must also have separation/sharing of liability. That...

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

Not quite true. If there were an overwhelming desire for HiFo to remain, there is a way to make that happen. It would be very inefficient, and eat about half the funding we have, and would require...

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.
