    Anyone any cool looking website they made?

    My open source project's website, only did the layout and the content. The other person who is working on the project made the site use the same color scheme as the icon.

The US also suffered from “ uniquely high” adolescent and adult syphilis infection rates, and adolescent abortion rates, the study suggested. Mr Paul said: “The study shows that England, despite the social ills it has, is actually performing a good deal better than the USA in most indicators, even though it is now a much less religious nation than America.” ... Interesting... Lack of sex education because the conservative christians don't want it to be taught in schools ?

    Can anyone help me install bash?

    Installing it should be pretty simple even if you don't have root access. Usually it's like this : cd into untarred directory ./configure make make install And to install it in your home directory : ./configure --prefix=/home/your_username/ make make install The bash executable will be installed in /home/your_username/bin Then run chsh and set your shell to /home/your_username/bin/bash Logout, and login and you should be using bash. There is nothing difficult about compiling stuff from source, the only real problems you might come across is that configure doesn't find something.

    The Latest in IE vs FireFox

    Quote:Original post by CoffeeMug Anyway, I don't have a problem with a browser not being secure. It's an OS' job. Stable yes. Fast yes. Compliant yes. Secure, ehh... I just have a problem with people claiming superior security with no factual basis for the claims whatsoever. /rant. The facts show FF is more secure then IE, just compare their pages at secunia : IE : Quote: Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.x with all vendor patches installed and all vendor workarounds applied, is currently affected by one or more Secunia advisories rated Highly critical This is based on the most severe Secunia advisory, which is marked as "Unpatched" in the Secunia database. Go to Unpatched/Patched list below for details. Currently, 19 out of 85 Secunia advisories, is marked as "Unpatched" in the Secunia database.

FF certainly isn't perfect, but security wise it still is better then IE.

    A Linux equivelent of StartUp and path

    Quote:Original post by yitzle Hi, I was wondering how I can get Linux to run specific programs (eg Gaim) when i log in. Additionally, I want to be able to run ~/bin/rar/unrar from any directory without having to type in the path. I can not put it in /bin as I do not have root access. Can I make my own 'local bin' or set the path somehow? Thanx! export PATH=$PATH:/home/yourname/bin/rar Put that in ~/.bash_profile If you leave Gaim in the system tray at exit, it should normally be reloaded (KDE does it this way, don't know about GNOME or other DE's)

    The Sunken City

    Quote:Original post by Lord Tydus Of course we won't get any aid from other countries. Despite the aid we give others every year. I say we focus on ourselves and stop spending billions helping poor countries that love our money, but would stab someone in the back if they had the chance. Poor countries have no money (that's why their poor). This is like asking a beggar you occasionally gave a dollar, to help repay for your burned down luxury villa.

    ATI - NVIDIA drivers in Linux

    Quote:Original post by tuita Have any of you guys ever had a problem with changing between an ATI and NVIDIA driver under Linux (specifically I'm under Fedora Core 4... not my choice... have to do it for work)? Anyway, my nightmare started when I tried to uninstall NVIDIA drivers and put in ATI drivers to do some benchmarking. Basically, some kind of remnants seemed to stay from NVIDIA so whenever any 3d hardware tried to startup, X would just crash out (that was under Fedore Core 3). So I bit the bullet and went to Fedora Core 4 and installed the ATI drivers and all was fine and dandy. Did the the benchmark and then went to go back to my usual GeForce based setup... This time the same problem occured. I installed the nvidia drivers, but X windows wouldn't boot. The error it gives me (which is the same as the error when converting from nvidia to ati) is: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset to peer) on X server ":0.0" after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining. I guess it would help if I actually new something about Linux (as I've always avoided it like plague) but even the 'Linux-People' at work here couldn't fix the problem. Have any of you guys had a problem like this and worked out how to solve it (besides 'convert to windows')? Edit: Note that x windows works fine if I start using generic software drivers... I am taking a guess here, but most likely the nvidia kernel module was probably still loaded when you tried to load the ati stuff. They probably don't play well together when loaded at the same time. lsmod should give you a list of modules currently loaded, you can remove any module using rmmod.

    How to legaly make a country of my own?

    You need some kind of derelict structure in the sea, some guy did this and called his country Sealand. They even had a civil war : Quote:From wikipedia On September 2, 1967, the fort was occupied by Paddy Roy Bates, a British subject and pirate-radio broadcaster, who ejected a competing group of pirate broadcasters and claimed sovereignty on the basis of his interpretation of international law (see Legal status). In 1968, Michael Bates (Roy's son) was summoned to court as a result of an incident during which shots were fired at a British navy vessel in the vicinity of Sealand. According to some reports the vessel's occupants were intending to evict Bates from the fortress, while others state that they were simply attempting to repair a nearby navigation buoy. In delivering its decision on November 25, 1968, the court stated that because the incident occurred outside British territorial waters, the court possessed no jurisdiction to rule on the matter. In 1978, while Bates was away, the "Prime Minister" he had appointed, Professor Alexander G. Achenbach, and several Dutch citizens staged a forcible takeover of Roughs Tower, holding Bates' son Michael captive, before releasing him several days later in the Netherlands. Bates thereupon enlisted armed assistance and, in a helicopter assault, retook the fortress. He then held the invaders captive, claiming them as prisoners of war. The Dutch participants in the invasion were repatriated at the cessation of the "war"; in contrast, Achenbach, a German citizen, was charged with treason against Sealand and imprisoned indefinitely. The governments of the Netherlands and Germany petitioned the British government for his release, but the United Kingdom disavowed all responsibility, citing the 1968 court decision. Germany then sent a diplomat to Roughs Tower to negotiate for Achenbach's release, and after several weeks Roy Bates relented, subsequently claiming that the diplomat's visit constituted de facto recognition of Sealand by Germany. (Germany has not confirmed this interpretation.) Following his repatriation Professor Achenbach established an "exile government" in Germany, in opposition to Roy Bates, assuming the title of "Chairman of the Privy Council". Upon Achenbach's resignation for health reasons in August 1989, the rebel government's "Minister for Economic Co-operation", Johannes Seiger, assumed control, with the position of "Prime Minister and Chairman of the Privy Council". Seiger continues to claim that he is Sealand's legitimate ruling authority.

    Becoming a longshoreman?

    Antwerp and Rotterdam are the biggest ports in Europe, you will find plenty of ships there to unload. A lot of people understand English in Belgium and the Netherlands so you should be able to find lots of people to tell salty tales to.

    Quake 3 Source to be Released

    Quote:Original post by Sneftel Quote:Original post by George2 The game content is not derived from the game code, there is no C++ code in music files, image files, game models, levels, ... How can it possibly be a derivative work of the code ? It is another work not based on the Program and therefore the GPL doesn't apply. For the same reason that source files which are added to a GPLed project to support changes made to the original source must themselves be GPLed. In the case of game content, the content has been prepared specifically to match up to "hooks" established in the game engine, and to invoke its functionality. For more information on this, see the GPL FAQ; it explains in detail where the "mere aggregation" clause applies. This isn't a cut-and-dried situation of a derivative work, of course, but it's ambiguous enough to make any resultant settlement quite significant. The courts have historically been very broad in classifying things as "derivative works". Quote:GPL FAQ What is the difference between "mere aggregation" and "combining two modules into one program"? Mere aggregation of two programs means putting them side by side on the same CD-ROM or hard disk. We use this term in the case where they are separate programs, not parts of a single program. In this case, if one of the programs is covered by the GPL, it has no effect on the other program. Combining two modules means connecting them together so that they form a single larger program. If either part is covered by the GPL, the whole combination must also be released under the GPL--if you can't, or won't, do that, you may not combine them. What constitutes combining two parts into one program? This is a legal question, which ultimately judges will decide. We believe that a proper criterion depends both on the mechanism of communication (exec, pipes, rpc, function calls within a shared address space, etc.) and the semantics of the communication (what kinds of information are interchanged). If the modules are included in the same executable file, they are definitely combined in one program. If modules are designed to run linked together in a shared address space, that almost surely means combining them into one program. By contrast, pipes, sockets and command-line arguments are communication mechanisms normally used between two separate programs. So when they are used for communication, the modules normally are separate programs. But if the semantics of the communication are intimate enough, exchanging complex internal data structures, that too could be a basis to consider the two parts as combined into a larger program. The GPL FAQ only talks about programs and libraries, not about content. Game content and code are separate works put side by side on the same CD-ROM which seems to me is "mere aggregation". I guess if you would include all the game content in the binary then your clause probably applies. Just because the content is loaded by a GPL'ed program, doesn't make it derivative.
