  1. Re: HOWTO: Install Debian onto your Nexus One using Ubuntu

    I did write that this howto is based on guides by others, and I do already provide a link directly to your guide Charansingh, but I will edit the post to be more explicit.

    Re: What's going on?

    Also again (and presumably for the last time), the two posts in question did not attack or harass a forum member (or anyone else), call anyone names, and were not condescending.

    To be clearer: none of you could point out a rule that justified the action by being violated.

    I wasn't questioning whether it was "allowed" (because the site owner and his representatives decide...

    Re: What's going on?

    That's not what happened.

    I quoted a harmless comment that was removed because it referred to a third post that was removed for CoC violations.

    There isn't a hard and fast rule that says quotes of deleted posts must edited out (I've even reported quotes of deleted posts and seen nothing happen).

    Why was the post I quoted deleted?

    It also did not violate the CoC.

    That's not right. Backups of stuff you legally own is covered by fair use, you don't need authorization.

    Re: Ripping a DVD to a computer illegal?

    Depends what country you live in.

    If you're in the US, making a personal backup is ok, but on the other hand DCMA makes breaking the encryption needed to do this illegal! So there's a conflict...

    Re: 32 bit vs 64 bit

    It doesn't "go both ways". There are no advantages to 32 bit over 64 bit, provided you have enough RAM that the larger pointers don't fill it up, and assuming those same larger pointers don't lower...
