Yes Geoffrey, please keep posting the Apps, very amusing and useful, although for the life of me I can't imagine why the world needs another FB or Twitter app, or twit.

Ok you asked for it, here's another one, Webcam to Gif

This one is a little strange as it don't save as gif by default, you need to name the complete file name.gif

But as you can see it works ok if you have a working webcam connected.

I guess to justify having the runtime installed there needs to be some applications that use it,
so I though I'd add some while I'm inspired to do so, have no idea if anyone wants them,
but there are a number of nice apps that seem very useful. any way while the thread is not so busy I'll keep plodding along if nobody minds.

It's been fairly quite, even on the new Saluki site.


Geoffrey

thanks for posting them. interesting didn't know there were such apps and now curious and will install the runtime and play a bit.

Pardon my absence for the last few days.

My day job has suddenly become a lot more busy and interesting. They are retraining me to do NetApp SAN installations and it's fairly hectic. It'll be a different city every week, sometimes every day. But it does move my career in a good direction - I may end up with a title something like Datacenter Design Consultant if I stick it out for a while. That would possibly set me up for a CTO position someday - but now I'm getting way ahead of myself. Wink

Obviously this will leave me less time and energy for Saluki, but really all the hard work is done already. I'm thinking saluki-023 will have xfce 4.10 but I'll hold off on the volume manager because it's not quite ready yet. I'm going to try to get 23 done over the weekend.

But I'm thinking I need to buy a new computer to continue development since I somehow whacked the partition table on my work laptop while working on 022, and since my work hard drive is encrypted, the partition table and all the data on the drive was irrecoverable. It had to be sent in to be re-imaged. Anyway the moral of the story is that I can't have that happening again, but my personal eeepc is annoyingly slow for compiling and woof builds. I'm thinking I'll buy a cheap tower with a fast processor. Suggestions? Maybe an AMD with an ATI card - since no one has been able to package the ATI proprietary driver.

Has anyone played with a PSP Vita yet? I'll be spending a lot of time traveling and it's certainly less annoying with something to do. I've got long flights to San Diego and Hawaii in the next few weeks (sadly the workdays can be long and they don't necessarily let me out of the datacenter much). Maybe I'll head over to gamestop today and trade in my PSP2. All the other consultants are buying iPads but I'm not sure that appeals to me.

Hi Jemimah, good to know that work evolves positively. You'll make an excellent CTO.

Given that the focus today is on mobile everything, I'd strongly encourage you to buy a laptop instead of a tower. Something with an Intel i5 maybe?

How about an Eeepad Transformer prime, great spec and on my wish list.

That way you will get immediate feedback regarding the impact of changes on the battery lifetime and all other sensitive laptop related issues.


Best regards

Oliverjames

My work laptop is an i5 and pretty awesome, but I'd like to be able to leave it booted to windows while I'm at home since it takes so long to boot all the antivirus, corporate management, and encryption stuff. Also, if I lose my job I'd have to send it back.

I'm looking to spend maybe $500 which won't buy much laptop.

As far as entertainment devices go - I need something that can't run any type of Unix/Linux and is not tempting to try and hack. One time-consuming obsession is enough!

All very reasonable points.

I just bought a second hand Aspire i5 in perfect condition from an auction site for the equivalent of $420. Bit of a risky road to take tho.

Hmmm... for what you are doing job-wise and such, you might look into a Google-Chromebook or a cheap laptop with a fairly fast processor and take a look at Joli OS and get used to the 'Cloud' as that's where your work will be taking you in the future... probably all Puppy builds also (in time). I know it's hard to adjust and such but I'm sure you noticed all the 'Tablets' carried by business people in your travels... It's the Future!!!!'

'Good Luck to you'

I definitely do not want to carry two laptops. I'm good in the surfing the internet dept. My work laptop is smallish and fast - good for surfing.

The portable entertainment device would be for gaming, and watching movies. The "cloud" is mostly not available on planes and honestly I get bored of it. Tablet gaming seems lame. The laptop form factor is unpleasant unless you have a desk or table.

The only downside to the Vita seems to be the battery life, proprietary media, and the inability to read pdfs. I think the battery issue can be worked around.

Why not stick with your current work Laptop and just plug in a fast external drive for all non-work related coding and stuff? That might be an alternative.

Subject description: Big or small
 

Always a big decision on the new hardware...I bought a new ASUS laptop i7...yes a few dollars more, but figured it would last many years. And I wanted a bigger screen for these old eyes. Next improvement was changing to a hybrid disk. SSD would have been a bit faster, and prices are now coming down. I/O - Input -Output is always the slowest part of any computer. Processors just sits most of the time, waiting for something to do. Faster disk speeds things up a lot. I also went to 12gb of memory.. cheap today.

Previously eighteen seconds for load of Streets and Trips, now six or less.

I have several desktops running around 3 Ghz or 3.5, older duel core, but run extremely well and very fast, especially with new hard drives that are buffered. You can pick up one or build one cheaply.

My suggestion... look for a fast processor, one or two cores, with smallest drive you can find. Then replace the drive with an SSD as soon as you can afford it. Will make your new system, either laptop or desktop sing! If you go SSD route remember not to defrag often. SSD only has so many read/write cycles. That will probably improve in the next few years as well as disk size.

I have three Hybrid drives and like them a lot. Regular drive with SSD front end for drive index, the drive gets faster as you use it more, "Learns".

Might check parts or cheap box at Fry's or order from Micro Center or New Egg.

Hope this helps. Easy to build a machine today.
