Well of course that goes without saying !
the very idea of owning movies which I haven't paid for;
or even converting DVD's so they are playable outside of brain-dead DVD
(which mostly also seem incapable of playing them);
is abhorrent to my higher moral self.!
I even believe there are some who have copies of that other OS what was
it called .....;
anyway they have not paid for it apparently.
There seems to exist a whole category of software ..shareware ?
where such behaviour is rife.
This software philosophy, what's it called 'open-source' ?;
why it's just encourages such an attitude !
Oh Andrew; how I concur with you regarding the wickedness of the world !

Labor opposing East West Link - good news, at least for me.
There is no contract signed yet - so all uncertainty claims are quite
strange. It is up to the government in power to create certainty - by
waiting with the contracts until after the election.
The process is before the courts because the link did not go through a
proper planning, assessment and consultation process yet. The lack of
process created the uncertainty.
So the government can correct it by honouring process. This would make it
a decision made by a government which asked for a mandate from the
Below my letter to Terry Mulder (terence.mulder(a)parliament.vic.gov.au).
Maybe you would like to contact him too?
the Labor decision to dump the East West Link is a good one for us in
Please cancel the project if you care for Victoria. It may save hundred of
millions or billions of dollars of claims when the project finally ends in
the bin, as it should.
The East West Link is not a properly planned project. I contacted you before
about my concerns. Some of the events and claims are truly bizarre if you
are familiar with the area as I am.
I work in Kensington. I frequently use the bike track along the Mooney Ponds
Creek you want to overshadow with another bunch of lanes. I also spend a lot
of time waiting for and in trains from and to Craigieburn and Upfield which
never go on time.
It is not a surprise that the whole case is before the courts. The rush to
lock it in resulted in a shoddy process which defies logic and did never
satisfy requirements of proper consulting with the public. Even now, the
design is still work in progress, and some of the "corrections" over time
looked as professional as me designing a model train with my son. How can
this being assessed? How can the community have a sufficient input in this
How can you sign contracts with this uncertainty? It will be a liability for
any future government and all Victorians.
A tender process where you continue with one bidder only is another detail
not making sense. I never do that if I want a good deal.
You were elected with the Liberals claiming support for the Metro Rail Link.
You did not advance the project. Instead it became another train wreck of
"planning on the run".
Please bring that back into action instead of tinkering with the East West
Link if you want to do something for Victoria.
I have a friend I assist as best I can, who has a Samsung Galaxy Tab S
that he wishes to print photos from. I think I found an app in the
Google Play store, by Googling from my notebook on a dial up connection,
but not quite sure of requirements and limitations. While it is probably
possible to print direct to a wi-fi network colour laser, I have in mind
a Brother HL-3045CN and attaching it to some switch or router with both
wired and wi-fi support. Any information from experience and comments
would be appreciated.
I am still looking for information on CUPS and printing from Debian 7.8
to a Canon LBP-5050N, the error message relates to a "Broken pipe" and I
continue to nose around CUPS and the configuration and scratch my head
and get splinters.
my phone only rings about 3 times before diverting to voicemail,
so if (as is usual) my phone is in another room plugged in to the
charger, it gets diverted to voicemail just as i'm picking it up to
answer it. this is very annoying.
anyone know of an android app that works like an old fashioned
land-line answering machine, i.e.
1. answers the call after X rings
2. plays a short message, that I can record like "leave a message after
3. starts recording, saving to sdcard AND playing on the phone's speaker
and, most importantly:
4. allows me to pick up the call during the recording. i don't really
care if it continues to record the conversation from this point or
a search on the google play store for 'call screening' or 'answering
machine' just gets a shitload of garbage.
