Technology, Science & Alt Science / Cheap VPS
« on: December 08, 2010, 08:47:45 PM »
If anyone wants a cheap VPS or unix shell for that matter I know a good offer for 1 dollar a month, 30 gbs of space and lots of bandwidth. 300 mhz processor 256 meg ram. linux only no bsd. You can upgrade the specs but it is still dirt cheap

pm me

just a psa

Why would you switch to linux if you have a Macbook? Macbooks are still pretty fast? OS X >> Linux because stuff just works. I can ssh into linux if I want a headache.

North is Hubwards, South is Rimwards, East is Turnwise, and West is Widdershins.

What is the meaning and etymology of "Widdershins"?
For a detailed definition and etymology please follow this link

Come on, show-show. Don't be ashamed.
But my software is non-free. I can't just share the source-code like that, because that would make it closer to free software.
No it doesn't

Tom's entries in the FE wiki are some of the most accurate contemporary writings about the flat earth. I don't see anything factually incorrect in any of his fine entries.

I think the only solution to this problem is to get rid of RM.

I don't use any other SMF sites other than this one, so it's probable that they would break also.

Just did a phone interview with Google. Scary but fun. No idea what to expect, but I think it went well.

The ironic thing is that Windows 7 is basically a rip off of of KDE's DE.

1)  My version of OpenOffice can directly open .docx files with no modification.  Also, although the standard is technically open, Microsoft deliberately incorporated non-open standards into their version of the .docx format.  They use that as a strategy in order to make their version of .docx files partly incompatible with other word processors in order to help secure their large market share.
Incorrect.

Which part is incorrect?  Or are you stating my whole claim in incorrect?
The part where you say OpenOffice can open .docx files is misleading, because OO butchers a lot of things, especially macros. And microsoft does not incorporate non standards into a standardized format.

Opens and Opens with perfection are not the same thing.  Most docx documents will open correctly in OO.  It's when you have very complex documents that it has difficulty.
Vim opens all .docx files, but it doesn't display them correctly... If it doesn't open it correctly; it doesn't count.

OpenOffice cannot open Office Open XML files, because Open Office is a POS.

Either of these statements, by itself, would be true. However, you have used the wrong conjunction -- "because" should be "and". Also, this does nothing to change the fact that your previous post contained deliberate misinformation.

They have the exact standards of Office Open XML, which is the document formatting that everyone uses now. Open Office can't even open "open" documents. Open source projects are fail.

Why do you even post here any more? Every one of your posts is deliberate misinformation.

If OpenOffice doesn't have the exact standards of .doc, how can they be expected to accurately adhere to them?

My thoughts exactly.  Fucking penguins.

I would like to know why Microsoft only gave examples of formatting errors when the openoffice documents were converted into a different format, as opposed to how Microsoft Office handles the formatting of the native open format of openoffice.

If OpenOffice doesn't have the exact standards of .doc, how can they be expected to accurately adhere to them?

Because propaganda. Most people don't understand what's being said well enough to notice these things.
Anyone who has used OpenOffice to open office 2007 documents knows Openoffice doesn't cut it.

Also, Gnome office sucks.

Anyone who has used Office 2007 to open OpenOffice documents knows Office 2007 doesn't cut it.

It doesn't even recognise the file.
Wrong. Office 2007 opens and exports ODF files.

So does 2010/2011
