Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

I would refrain from commenting on the Neo as it would only set me off again.

But on the topic of Raspberry Pi and the like...

I never liked any DIY solutions based on Pi because they are all...

Re: Sailfish Devices in The United States

I thought that was to do with the hardware certification and the difficulties of entering the market dominated by carriers. To be honest, I was also baffled by the seemingly arbitrary limitation on...

Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

I studied computer science at the uni some 25-30 years ago and it was the sign of the times then already. Our course was split into two streams, hardware and software. I took the hardware path, but...

Just a small wake-up call, I received an email yesterday with one of my throwaway passwords in the subject. It said, "I am aware that this is your password, pay me $lots in bitcoin or I will do some...

Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

What I find amazing is that it can run a proper desktop UI on 512 MB while a certain unnamed OS is struggling with a crippled mobile UI with twice as much.

You are right and you are also right that people get confused about the distinction but (IMO) not quite in the way you think.

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

Yeah...about that contact thing. You might try cleaning the contacts. Simply take the card out and rub the contacts with a rubber eraser. I fixed quite a few PC cards that way back in the day.

There appears to be a pattern emerging. Both P@t and juiceme formatted the card elsewhere. Curious.

Happened again today. Twice. WhoGo is currently closed, yet flashing GPS icon in the status bar and trying to start a new instance shuts it down instantly.

Re: It's the final countdown!

Seconded! That is exactly why the most popular TV programme in our household is... Family Guy. No saving the world from aliens but about the same level of intellectual taxation.
