Build Server Dlls blocked?

This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer « jackal777

If you do a lot of work using a Build Server and your files get blocked by windows. This link is handy to have. Very annoying thing especially if you often take files from an other computer.

Like the idea: Nexus Q

I like the social streaming aspect of this little device. I hope they extend the usability of this outside of the Android eco-system. I want my friends with their iPhones, WP7's aso. to be able to control this just as well.  I'm confident that at least a web interface will be around somehow. Still, I would prefer a good native app. If I'll buy the Nexus 7, this sure will be a nice addition for the living room.

Google Nexus Tablet as Android Alarm

Google Nexus tablet reportedly shows its pre-rendered face, packing Android 4.1 and a $199 price -- Engadget
this would be really nice. Cheap enough to just buy as a toy. I really don't see a good reason for me to have a tablet. They just aren't useful enough at the moment. I'm sure that will change with time. I hope they offer a decent looking stand/docking station with it. Then I would have one use for it at least, as a fancy alarm clock. I do want to buy some internet radio/usb storage playing alarm anyways. (The iHome iC50 would be a nice alternative for that)

Why is Linux not competitive on desktop?

ah yes, that's slowly changing. Too slow for my taste. But if you want, you can buy PCs and Laptops preinstalled with Linux nowadays. Still far from going down the road to a computer shop and pick one up. We get there further down the road ...

Software isn’t Dead

DoctorMo's Blog » Blog Archive » Software isn’t Dead

he's got a good point there. I like the cathedral metaphor :). And it's interesting that Microsofts "Metro" UI makes programming simpler by making the UI simpler (=more mobile like). Less feature bloated, less to code. But also a lot needs to be reinvented for this "new" UI. From this point of view half of it feels like a step back to the 90s. Thank God they didn't reintroduce the commandline.

Linux & Games

Humble Indie Bundle is the single greatest thing to happen to Linux in years

The situation with games and Linux has steadily improved in recent years. A lot can be attributed to the Humble Indie Bundle. And I think the Steam for Linux will highly accelerate this trend. Furthermore, Steam will finally deliver AAA-Titles to Linux effortless for publishers. This will make Linux a much more viable target for them.

The Humble Indie Bundle V

The Humble Indie Bundle V (pay what you want and help charity)

Great to see this excellent bundle having such a epic success. Over 5 mil. USD with almost 600k bundles sold. This is quite a step up from previous bundles.
