To Ibrakalifa:

If you were being sarcastic it was cleverly disguised as quite plain language..
I accept that you were being sarcastic ...but please try to add something so it is plain and obvious for simple folk like me not to confuse




To sicelo:

Well thanks man...

It is ...or rather used to be our philosophy here ...eh?
I think we are getting soft around here...

It used to be ..
If there was something we wanted that others had...
we found methods of making them work for us...
or we found alternatives that worked,
or made said alternatives ourselves.

Nothing has changed in that regard except time ..and numbers of n900 users and developers in that time.

If anything...considering those two factors... and their impact on us...adoption and / or adaptation of new and / or old and / or different methods of reaching desired goals should also be considered.

for example:
If past "A" researched and applied method(s) did not work due to n900 hardware or software barriers or limitations which hit hurdles they couldn't cross over to their success....
that doesn't mean they are dead ends of development with no hope of success.

Perhaps past "A" researched and applied method(s) coupled with another (or others) past "B" researched and applied method will have the desired success.

Or

Perhaps a new development or unraveling of some code...which has already occurred ...or just newly done... in conjunction with "A" ...or with "A" and "B" ...or with "A", "B" and "C" ....etc... will allow that hurdle ..that barrier... to developmental success... to be no barrier at all.

All it takes is a keen eye and an open mind ...and the time to study a problem ...
and usually there is a solution...

It just takes motivation, will, desire, and creativity.

"Cool ***** .....don't make itself ..."
someone once said...(can't remember who though..)
