I, Anthony Carapetis, beta tested Defcon (sorta kinda - a patch) and Multiwinia. Put me on yonder list, and nothing else, or forever burn on a stake of malice.

Can it? I was under the impression that even we are running low on fossil fuels. But even so, we also have a huge natural resource in the form of readily fissile fuel - probably the world's biggest. Surely that is a resource we should be exploiting. I think one of the issues with coal (as opposed to...

I hate to bandwagon, but elexis really looks like the best candidate at this point - his quantity of wordage is a significant statistical outlier. If I wake up before the day ends, I'll review the day's votes and might reconsider. Also, I notice a severe lack of storytellin' in this here TWG. Damn w...

I have no figures, but I'm fairly sure the reductions needed are huge if we want to noticeably reduce our impact. The 5-20% figures being proposed by politicians are insignificant, almost pointless. Obviously, some change is better than none, but ultimately that kind of effort is just going to slow ...

So, "Earth Hour". Stupid stunt. I think it has an overall negative effect - sure, it raises awareness of our environmental issues (just in case someone hadn't noticed), but it also spreads misinformation about the best way to fix it... power consumption is not the issue, power generation i...

Low bandwidth connections are simply disappearing from the market. In Europe and affluent Asia, maybe. The most I can get for a reasonable cost is 1.5mbps, and even if we paid the extra to go to cable (20mbps if you're lucky) we'd then be stuck with hideous (<15GB/month) data limits. Or maybe it's ...

Yeah, latency is a big issue... even with servers located in my city, I see a minimum of 20ms ping... that may be undetectable when it's just the netcode, but that's on the edge of having noticeable control lag if you are streaming the graphics. And yeah, bandwidth's a big issue: unless you want art...

There was certainly some kerfuffle about defcon on a "mobile" platform, but I don't think anything ended up coming of it... and personally I doubt anything will, considering IV have two (three?) games to work on once Darwinia+ is out the door.

Try running nm-applet from a terminal... if it claims it doesn't exist, it's probably been actually removed from the system... in which case you should searc hfor it in whatever suse uses as the package manager nowadays.
