    Re: Beginners Programming Challenge 16

    Can we presume that the length of the file will be (or should be) the exact right length? Because if so we needn't really take the length of the side, surely. Or might the input file be longer than...
  2. Re: Rythmbox+Ubuntu: Never seen anything like it before!

    This freaked me out before I knew about it because my laptop would start playing random bits of music for no apparent reason.

    But yeah, cool functionality.

    Poll: Re: Evolution or Thunderbird?

    Can I get anyone's opinion what how Evolution compares with Thunderbird+Lightning as an integrated email client and calendar? I used to not pay much attention to calendars but when I worked in a firm...
  5. Poll: Re: Diaspora coming next month -- anyone planning on jumping ship from Facebook?

    I wondered why they called it Diaspora. I presumed it was because old friends/relatives could use it to catch up with each other from around the world. To me (being Irish) it brings to mind the Irish...

  7. Poll: Re: Diaspora coming next month -- anyone planning on jumping ship from Facebook?

    It's a great idea but unfortunately I can't see any reason to set up an account. All my friends are on Facebook, and they're very unlikely to move to Diaspora en masse (for the simple fact that all...

    Re: Linux users and bad GUI's?

    I have two bars, and I play around with auto-hiding them. Generally if I'm only working in one program I'll fullscreen it anyway.

    Re: linux/windows: the fundamental difference?

    I disagree. They are both operating systems, so for the end user they are both trying to fulfill the same role (or similar roles). It's silly to say the two can't be compared or contrasted, they're...

    Re: Have you seen the programmer hierarchy?

    I was actually toying with the idea of trying some Lisp once I become competent at Python. Straight to the top!
  11. Re: How difficult would it be to build my own computer?

    Hi I'm just wondering, are there major cost savings to be made in building a non-top-of-the-line PC? Like, I know that by building yourself you can often get a really high-spec PC for less money than...

    Re: Linux users and bad GUI's?

    Re: Have you seen the programmer hierarchy?

    I don't know Java. I'm learning Python (and FWIW I'm also surprised that Python is so high up in the list).
