Marshmud: Brainking sold as planned? Has that happened? Today is my first day back :D I was pretty busy with a few life changing developments, and made a conscious effort to not visit BK last year. Couldn't keep away forever though ;)
MadMonkey: Matthew (mctrivia) hasn't been around in years. Remember his game site he developed and we played together at?. I believe it was called AI....stood for artificial intelligence if I'm correct. He lived in Canada and was a great guy. Smart as well.
Any programmers here that is familiar with BK? Those that I knew that could of been of assistance, like toedder, mctrivia & hexkid are no longer here at BK. I have some questions and maybe a deal that I could offer you if BK is sold as planned. Nothing etched in stone but I would like to know if anyone is interested in technical support.
ketchuplover: Thought a while aout that and am still not sure what to think. Because it feels right what you say, but I am asking myself how to handle for example books. Lets say you sold a book about chess strategy one day and twenty years later you do not agree with yourself any more. Do you have the right to make all owners of your book put it into the dustbin?
What is with newspapers and any printed item in the worlds archives?
diogenysos: I upgraded internet explorer a few months ago and I suspect that is the cause. I have gone into some sites and they state that they don't recognise internet explorer. In this site I cannot use the smileys in rich text.
ketchuplover: I've had no problems with it. I think the "secret" is to uncheck that box that was there before completing the download. (I don't remember now what it was about). At POGO, the forums suggested unchecking that box, for less problems. I did uncheck it, and I've had zero issues. Possibly coincidence, though, I suppose. For some reason I practically never experience problems when other people do.
WellyWales: Yes, but is it specifically an ipad you want, or any good tablet, e.g Samsung, Sony, Nexus tablet. Should it run iOS, Windows8 or Android. What are the main things you want to get out of it ?
WellyWales: Actually there are only a few ipads to choose from, only nice thing about Apple, that you are not blinded by choice. However, if you are looking at tablets generally the choice really explodes. Is it specifically an iPad you want?
The Linux Foundation is funding three Linux kernel internships through the Outreach Program for Women administered by the GNOME Foundation. These internships have a $5,000 stipend and come with a $500 travel grant to attend and speak at LinuxCon this fall. This is a great opportunity to work with a mentor and get started with kernel development, which as many articles report, is a great way to land a high-paying job.
alexlee: That looks like a Chinese, Japanese or similar language version with charset that is not installed no his computer. Clicking the small English flag at the right column (and confirming) should help.
