  1. Pi Zero - the $5 computer

    I've never heard of that before, but I guess that's not surprising as I've never used Twitter (and have no intention). Don't know why anyone would give you backlash over that though, entirely your choice.   Gumstix' Geppetto looks like it could be pretty neat tool for custom boards
  2. I'm not saying I disagree with your sentiment, I'm just telling it like it is...   You say you've already paid - but you've paid for the bus ticket to take you places, you haven't paid for the WiFi because you said the WiFi was "free" (presumably to bus customers), and that gets back to what "free" entails.   You're bothered about them reading all your data (rightly so), but you can always buy a 3G dongle and use mobile networks instead.   Bombarding them with nonsense will not "fix" the issue, if anything, they'll get fed up of the network abuse and revoke it, leaving you with no "free" wifi.   So yes, I agree with you on one hand, but you get what you pay for. Don't like it? shop somewhere else. If everyone only shopped in the good spots, the bad ones would wither and die. It's economics
  3. "What are they thinking?" and "Almost all companies are doing it nowadays"... well, they're thinking "We want to be the same". But sarcasm aside, you protect yourself by not using "free" public wifi spots. I don't know what else you'd expect from a "free" service... sure, if you paid a subscription and they did that, I could understand your frustration, but it's not.
  4. Pi Zero - the $5 computer

    Actually, you can't buy it for £4, it's out of stock - and at Element 14 it's ~£11.   Still, looks quite nice
  5. DevBoard to build kali Linux.

    Interesting, that looks a different board to this one. Does that price have VAT?
  6. Refugee Situation in Europe

    Not sure I agree with you here - about the "it's not what's in the book". Sure, there are muslims that don't listen to that bit, just as their are christians that don't listen to the old testament and other such atrocities. That does not negate their contents are present, nor their effects to the lunatics that believe the books as literal truth. Personally, I hold both books in the same contempt, and think the world would be a better place without them. I'm against organised religion as a principal, but I'm happy to let people be (unless they come knocking at my door, bloody Jehovah's Witlesses, I'm looking at you), but still, the books are present, and they contain nonsense of a bygone era.   This s**t scares me...  
  7. PuzzlePix Halloween

    I hope it didn't sound negative, I was trying to provide constructive feedback. I do always like your productions, so keep up the good work :)

      Time to call Bill Gates!
  9. Refugee Situation in Europe

    Sorry to hear that, glad you're okay though
  10. PuzzlePix Halloween

    I know, but I didn't play it as soon as I downloaded, so didn't have that reference to hand; and wanted to give you feedback from the perspective of when I played it. Take it as you will.
  11. PuzzlePix Halloween

    I completed it, but to be honest, I didn't actually know what I was doing and why I could only do tiles in a particular order, and I really didn't get what the crosses were for... Presentation was great, maybe something that explained the rules would have been nice though
  12. Refugee Situation in Europe

    I personally don't know what to make of it all. I'm not directly opposed to accepting refugees, but the economy isn't exactly brilliant in the UK (not sure it's much better in the rest of Europe either) with the scale of immigrants (and this may be harsh, but no, I don't think they're all refugees), I don't know what they'll do when they get here, apart from maybe completely break our failing system.   Either way, this is definately wrong...    
  13. Slow Pandora builds

    Well, loading and unloading your images every frame is going to be a massive burden. Also the Pandora's screen size is 800x480, not 800x600
  14. 2016 is the year of portable computers

      What? Desktops and laptops are gone? Don't be silly.
  15. Well, I'm not sure on the exact limit to my hosting space/database, so I will need some form of culling, but I guess we'll just have to play that by ear until I get a feel of how many dead accounts we get
