As much as I couldn't stand Duh-bya and Darth Cheney I never threatened either one; OK, I might have said something like they proved there was no God - because if there were, they'd have been blasted into ash by coordinated lightning strikes for their crimes against humanity. But that's different than a death threat, or even telling someone to go kill himself.
Given the circumstances, I'm pretty comfortable saying that anyone telling President Obama to go kill himself is probably a racist piece of shit.
So - if Microsoft's offerings don't thrill you and you either don't like the free alternatives (Open/LibreOffice, Google Docs) or find them lacking - have a look at SoftMaker Office. They've also got versions for Linux, Android, etc.
I'm not aware off the top of my head of any other covers of this nature - there are a lot more examples of artists noted for rock doing a disco or disco-flavored song - Blondie's "Heart of Glass" being a personal favorite example. ;)
It does have quirks - they didn't machine the bottom so the rubbery footpad would be flat, which means it tends to "walk" from bass thumps. I haven't actually used the Bluetooth portion of it so I can't attest to that, but to my ears it sounded great when hooked up via the AUX port. (I tested with Hiroshima's "One World" - a track that has some very powerful, booming bass taiko drums in it as well as some sparkling treble from the koto.) There's a bass reflex port on the back which probably helps in reproducing the low end. One surprise when changing mode between BT and AUX - it speaks, and the voice has distinctly accented English. But hey, with the discount code it's $20. ;)
I have to admit I was expecting something around the size of my Soundmatters FoxL - and this is considerably bigger than that: about 7.5" wide, to give you an idea of its scale. It also claims a 4000mAh internal battery; obviously I haven't had time to check their claims of run time but if that's accurate it should run a good while. It comes with a carry bag, 3.5mm audio cable, USB charging cable (which was able to move 1.2A of current) and an instruction manual (English, German, French, Spanish and Japanese). While I noticed some slightly odd usage it's entirely readable, not the impenetrable "Engrish" I've seen in some such manuals.
So... if you're in need of this kind of speaker, have a look; Amazon hasn't said how long the discount code will be good for, so don't procrastinate.
I don't know how much was the presumably slow train and how much the pointless bureaucracy - but it took just two days shy of a MONTH from the time I ordered to the time PostNord claims they sent it on. (Note that they had it for 12 days - so the Swedes aren't breaking any bureaucratic land speed records here either.)
Now, given my past mention of discontent with DX ... you may reasonably be wondering why I'm putting myself through this. Partly due to the fact I had some store credit to burn up, and partly because they happened to have two different items in a category I'm interested in and it just seemed more efficient to get them from one source. I just hope my parcel arrives so I have a chance to evaluate the two models and decide which - if either - I want more of before the last of my "gift cards" expires - silly me didn't realize that I could only use one per order and I couldn't cash out all my reward points into a single one, so....
Ah well, first world problems. ;)
There's a huge number of the type of Android app I'm looking for on the Play store - that's what's making this difficult.
I'm looking for a program to scroll a message across the screen - many of the ones I've seen simulate an LED matrix sign, but that's not a requirement. What IS a requirement is the ability for the program to read the text to display from something outside itself - preferably something as simple as a text file, but I might be able to deal with formatting the data as an RSS feed. All the examples I've found so far want me to type the text directly into the program, and that's just not what I need. (If you're curious, I want to set up a tablet to display the currently-playing song in a playlist, so the data would have to be able to be updated rather frequently from the computer playing the music.)
Anyone know of something that might work? I'd really rather not have to learn how to write an Android application if I don't really have to...
And in case anyone's wondering why not an actual LED matrix sign - for one thing, I already have the tablet, and believe it or not a decent 16x96 monochrome LED matrix sign can cost more than a basic 7" tablet. :)
John Oliver's been doing some awesome things with his show - not to mention officially posting the core segment of his show to YouTube.
None of the people on the relevant committee you'll hear about in this piece are my congressperson - so I'm doing my best to help by getting the word out.
That's because they were fighting on the same side! Both clubs have gold and black as main colors in their patches, and the historical link between the terms "cossack" and "scimitar" strongly suggests these are allied clubs. Yeah, things like that matter in cases like this!
There are other ideas that might be relevant here - the concept of a "support club" for instance - but I'm not going to turn this into Outlaw Biker 101. ;)
