    Re: Permission Denied

    Have you got the correct permissions to run foo?

    Do this:

    ls -l /media/Projects/C/foo/foo/bin/Debug/foo

    The output will show something like -rwxrwxr-x. If you see no x anywhere in that...

    Re: GUI in Python

    That is misinformation.

    Re: Directx

    Why not join the Wine project and help them implement DirectX? Plenty of things to do there: http://wiki.winehq.org/DirectX-ToDo

    Re: Could somebody explain linked lists to me?

    Each node points to another node. That is all.

    In the simplest terms, a node consists of two values: one is the value carried by the node, and the other is the value of the location of the next...

    The nature of information that can be transmitted on the Internet is different from the information that can be transmitted via print or film media.

    Oh, Karel! I remember that. At the time, our teacher likened Karel to a cockroach, and how we should pretend we're telling a cockroach where to move. :p

    GW-BASIC was the first. Back in the days when floppy disks were actually "floppy". ;)

    Re: Python 2.7 (win) and threads

    You probably don't need threads, and it's not likely to help you very much since the bottleneck (establishing connection) is actually outside your code. Also, Python doesn't have native threads, so...

    Re: Go-oo Dead?

    It makes sense. The two projects were created for pretty much identical reasons, so it's only natural for them to join forces.

    I think it'll be great for FOSS office software! :)

    Re: Royal Navy Website Hacked, Passwords Release

    Not to those who know what they're doing. ANY computer system, Linux or otherwise, is hackable. Also, this was an application-level intrusion, so the operating system had very little to do with it.
  15. Re: What does MS Office actually do that openoffice does not?

    In your case, MS Office won't be worth the pricetag.

    For other users, such as myself, it is worth it.

    Lots of issues for me on that front. Even relatively simple tables and bullets are out of...

    Re: Lightest & fastest version of Linux?

    Definitely a +1 for Crunchbang. My system was only about 200MB at boot-up, and that was with compiz enabled. Most other distros clock up about 290MB at least.

    And because it has a Debian base,...

    Man is adaptable: true.

    But people like the Inuits have adapted over many many generations, and even evolved to a degree to cope with their environment. Furthermore, they live in fairly organised...
  21. Re: Professors urge one-way Martian colonization missions

    Mars' gravity is only 38% of Earth's, so the fuel savings would actually be more than your estimate. :)

    Terraforming seems a little too ambitious though. We could certainly build a base there, if...
  22. Re: Need to add scripting language to my skill set, but which one?

    Python or Ruby.

    Both are available on Windows and Linux (and both are pre-installed on MacOS). Both have mature implementations on .NET (IronPython and IronRuby) and Java (Jython and JRuby) as...

    Saturn IV was a freak project. Unfortunately, if you don't keep up projects like that, you lose the intellectual investment. People with the knowledge and skill die/retire due to old age, etc.
  25. Re: Professors urge one-way Martian colonization missions

    I'm less concerned about nice scenery, and more concerned at what seems to be a very "dead" spirit of enterprise and progress -- both generally as well as on these forums.
