+Jim Lynch you need to credit where you got your theme for gimp to look like photoshop. It's as if you've sanitised my name right out of existence, which is not fair on people who spend time and effort making things. http://www.itworld.com/software/412301/make-gimp-look-photoshop

It might be that his source didn't credit properly either. But journalism says I.

The future isn't those airwaves for exactly this reason. The networks online are and will continue to replace television broadcasting and the only hope for the future is to make sure the smart TVs and internet streaming boxes are not proprietary junk that will tie viewers into the same narrow minded jerks as the existing broadcasters.

Support the arts by supporting Free and Open Source software and hardware in your home today. Reject Apple, Netflix and many of the other new media corps who wish to control what you can watch, when and for how much.

OMG, A redirected flight to Leipzig today went through Charles DeGaul airport. That place is a hell. I had 1 hour 40 minutes to get from one terminal to another and I only just made the flight. I was demeaned by security searches and scanned twice and had to run so fast that I was wheezing by the time I sat down on the flight.

I shall be rather sticking rusty blades in my eyes than paying a visit to CDG airport again.

I'm unhappy about anti-gay CEOs, but no so much that I would use a proprietary web browser. Please don't use IE, Sarafi or Opera instead of Mozilla Firefox. Mozilla might be a pretty bad Free Desktop partner, but at least they're not actively trying to prevent freedom like Microsoft or Apple.

Just like there's a fair amount of "job discrimination" against nazis.
