I'm faffing about with trying to get my music and podcasts onto my Nokia phone, but every podcast aggregator I've used seems to be unable to grab the last few episodes of Linux Outlaws. Gpodder, Rhythmbox, Banshee, Exaile and Amarok (1.4) all seem unable to find any episodes after number 128. Is anyone else having problems with this? Is it a faulty RSS feed?
What are people using to sync music and podcasts to their devices, by the way?
iTunes is also blind to episodes after 128.
:oops: Or so I've been told.
Well, I think the big issue is why we care about a crackpot book written by a flock of savages running around in the middle eastern country 2000 years ago...
Not to mention all the funny stuff that is going on in Revelation beside the number of the beast. Hopefully we would have already spotted the 7-headed dragon running around. :-)
unfortunately, the number of the beast is 616 ( there was a translation error ).
Both 666 and 616 appear in Greek manuscripts. To make a long story short, 666 is in the majority of manuscripts of the book of Revelation, whereas 616 is in an early papyrus manuscript (P115) and Codex C (which is regarded as a good witness to Revelation). For what its worth, Irenaeus (a fairly early Church Father) knew of both readings but affirmed 666. The cause of the variant is not clear: it could have been the result of an early copying error. Or if you presume that the number's meaning is rooted in numeric representations of Nero's name, then the language the name is "counted" in (Aramaic or Latin) will result in 666 or 616, respectively. At any rate, I think it is important for people to realize that this 666 v 616 is not an issue of translation per se (e.g. not an error translating from Greek to English) but a question of textual criticism (and an interesting one at that).
I understand the argument for monopoly, and I understand Microsoft's "anti-competitive" practices. What I don't get is why these concepts should relate to the internal configuration of their product. If the browser must be customer-selectable, why not other components? Don't like calc.exe? You can choose from competitors when you first boot. At what point do you reach the "bedrock" of the operating system product where MS should not have to be required to offer alternatives. It's just silly.
If the EU is worried about an MS monopoly, they should look at Microsoft's deals with OEMs (that's what causes the monopoly, after all), not at Internet Explorer. The concept of abusing their monopoly to unfairly promote IE is goofy.
Warning, this post contains pro-MS flamebait. ;-)
I think that anti-trust lawsuits against Microsoft over Internet Explorer are crap. :crap:
Is it really the abuse of a monopoly to ship a browser with your OS? Practically every other OS ships with a browser and offers no choice to the customer. Why should Microsoft get hammered for this?
