sarcasticone: gotta love the forms lol
sarcasticone: "But what would you expect a Novell fanboy?"
sarcasticone: "I work as IT ingeenir in one of the biggest high schools of the state and Ive been using Linux since circa 1987 "
sarcasticone: yeah I've been using linux since around 1987 too
sarcasticone: before it was writen
sarcasticone: spellings even worse than mine on that
mikeplus64: Nah it's possible.
mikeplus64: DeLoreans were around then.
nyxkn: hmm, if they actually do linux steam, will the linux version (if any) of the games you already bought be available for you for free?
Ivanovic: nyxkn: yes
Ivanovic: nyxkn: at least that is what happened so far with all "steamplay" games for mac users
Ivanovic: you buy one version via steam and if the game is available on X platforms, you can use it on those X platforms
nyxkn: i see
nyxkn: i'm tempted to get the unreal deal pack :)
asraniel: nyxkn: remember that not all games will be ported (IF there will be a linux version, which is not very probably anyway after the ps3 release). for example all ID games are on steam, but have no mac version
Ivanovic: nyxkn: the studio behind the game has to manually add the linux version!
Ivanovic: nyxkn: if the publisher does eg not update stuff, you won't get linux support
nyxkn: oh, but the unreal series does have the linux version, doesn't it?
nyxkn: except maybe ut3
mikeplus64: I really can't get over how broken the headline for http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=ODM1OA is.
FliPPeh_: oh crap
FliPPeh_: My mouse just died on my
FliPPeh_: Buy a new one or keep using old ones lying around here.. hmmm
FliPPeh_: My mouse is gettings disconnected whenever I lift it up and the laser doesn't scan anything, heh
kbios: FliPPeh_: What brand is it?
FliPPeh_: I like it :)
CME: maybe usb autosuspend
FliPPeh_: I didn't change anything
FliPPeh_: And my other mouse works fine
FliPPeh_: But that's a notebook mouse, too small for a big desktop and WAY too small for gaming
kbios: By "lift up" you mean taking it in the air?
kbios: If so, there may be a protection
kbios: Lasers can be dangerous
FliPPeh_: I have had that mouse for about a year
FliPPeh_: It never did that
kbios: Ah, ok
FliPPeh_: And it started disconnecting even without lifting
FliPPeh_: Now it just does it when lifted. The power is completely cut off
FliPPeh_: Normally there's a light that displays it's current DPI settings. It flickers and goes out, always a bad sign
kbios: If you disconnect it completely and then reconnect it?
FliPPeh_: Also changed USB ports
kbios: So it's dying out
FliPPeh_: It's pretty unstable overall, sometimes when I shake it a bit it goes out, too
FliPPeh_: Something's loose in there I suppose
kbios: Screwdriver? :-)
FliPPeh_: Can't find screws :x
kbios: So the window is the only option
kbios: Yes, throw it out :D
FliPPeh_: Oh yes!
FliPPeh_: But I like keeping old things, you know
FliPPeh_: My shelves are full
FliPPeh_: and the drawers :D
kbios: They may always be useful after all
FliPPeh_: I'll keep it.
FliPPeh_: You never know when someone rings the door and asks for a broken Sharkoon Fireglider
kbios: LOL!!! XD :)
kbios: I have full of old ball-based ps/2 mouses, if you want
kbios: They always give me one with new computers
kbios: Going and trying nouveau 3d now.
kbios: Expect disconnect soon (crash)
kbios: Back from nouveau testing, bug filed: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=28756

bluekoala: Is it you who wrote the review?
Nevtus: hmm, I'm currently looking at buying a sat nav device and most of what I've read on google seems to say that managing one without using Windows or Mac is hard/impossible. Anyone got first hand experience of this?
