So thrilled at this
"Going for Coffee" has a new definition with you two.
Thank you so much I think you just figured out for me what's been going on since Feb. I have a HIP (something test) on 6 June, but what you have described sounds like what's going on. Your blog has made we feel so much better and not as scared about it all. Thank you, thank you.
Thanks for pointing out this book, which I had heard of, but never thought to look up on Island Lives. I live just down the hill from the late Bill's house, so can identify with his starting location, and will continue to read the rest of his trip account with interest!
Thanks for the blog post. I will probably sign up for a proxy and try out what they watch south of the border. Does your experience extend to network television feeds? I have heard that some episodes are available within days of airing on network TV, like say, NCIS or Grey's Anatomy?
Lastly, I urge you to give Torchwood a try, but if you are not a Dr Who fan it might not be up your alley. Hell on Wheels is also quite good, I watched it on AMC.
I hope you get this message. I have the same symptoms. My ultrasound and blood work came back normal. No gallstones. I had a HIDA scan yesterday and I am waiting on the results. I have put myself on a strict diet for the last 4 years. When I indulge in fatty foods, I get Ill for at ast a week. Same pain you describe.
If you have been successfully treated, please let me know what treatments helped you. I don't mind the healthy whole foods diet. I miss eating an occasional ribeye steak and a homemade hamburger. But if I give in and eat fatty meat, I get Sick.
I've never heard of this! I need to read it.
Peter, we're just the men to recreate this journey and transcribe it by radio and by blog. I am only a little bit joking.
Great summary of Poppy's book, Peter. It's been awhile since I read it last, and this reminds me I should dust off my copy now that it's canoe/kayak season again.
You have to run |adb remount| before pushing to remount the /system partition in read-write mode.
Unfortunately, yes and no. The file can be found in
you can adb pull it, change, but you can't push it back, because it's a read only system. chmod won't work either.
I use the 747 bus in YUL all the time Peter - it is excellent and has a 20 minute gap so there is always a bus. Even in the rush hour it makes good time too. The bus that I thn take to Knowlton, Limocar, is also a winner. Especially if I leave in the rush hours - buses in MTL have a special bus route onto the bridge that avoids the jam. So they are able to keep to schedule. The Mega bus MTL to Tor - takes 5 hours and can cost less than a tank of gas.
Buses get better all the time
Since it's all HTML/CSS/JS: shouldn't it suffice to transfer the browser zip file to your desktop computer, unzip it, modify browser.js, re-zip it, and put it back in place? Rebuilding and flashing complete gaia seems like huge overhead to me.
Thanks, that's helpful!
The Peak is 13.5 cm x 6.5 cm x 0.8 cm. I don't have a way of checking the weight, but I can tell you that it seems to be about 3/4 of the weight of my Nokia Lumia 800 if that means anything to you.
If you get a chance, I'd be interested in the dimensions and weight (rough is fine). I haven't seen these numbers listed anywhere.
As the first devices being shipped with Firefox OS are all in the same lineage as the Keon, the larger screen of the Peak right now isn't tested very well - and in the first version of Firefox OS, some corners have definitely been cut to manage to get something deliverable to the low-end market within the set timelines.
Also, it seems like because of the Peak not being in the v1 target lineage, Geeksphone did some creative hacking to get the builds for it up and running (which can be the source of crashes/reboots), and I hope they'll clean that up in future updates. They're a pretty tiny company so some things there might take a while.
That set, all the code is open, the phone is flashable and our people at Mozilla surely would be more than happy about you getting up a build of the current development versions and getting in some pull requests on fixes e.g. in the UI ("Gaia"). :)
Are you sure that wasn't last year? I am old.
In the meantime, this responsive.css file will help: it adjusts the sizes of UI elements, and is used by the Gaia apps (like SMS) to ensure that they are rendered in usable size.
> there’s an issue with it not being detected as a mobile browser by sites offering a mobile version
Looks like it's time to stop assuming the only mobile browsers are WebKit-based.
Ah how time flies
These bike racks are convenient on Toronto routes. I'm glad that Charlottetown has at least one bus so equipped!
nice project! Im trying to replicate it, however I am having hard time to get python up and running (this is quite new for me).
But my first question: dont you need Ethernet shield for arduino to run this? In Cosm it sort of says you do...
Thanks for reply
Soooo very cool!
Thanks so much , I was on the verge of crying today on the phone with bell mobility trying to find a local who understands but all I got was some guys out of mombai I'm sure ready and eager to sell me a plan...so when I goofled pei bell you're article came up.
Hi Peter: You’ve “sparked” some interest here.
I’m happy to say that a solution is on the way, at least for Canadian books. Have a look at www.deslibris.ca. And more specifically at http://www.deslibris.ca/en-us/resources/libraries/universalloan.aspx
As we say, this solution will not necessarily work for the larger publishers. But we think it will dramatically improve the degree of exposure and (hopefully, by extension) the revenue finding its way to Canadian publishers and their authors. It will also build stronger collections of Canadian works in Canadian libraries.
For example, look at the PEI Overdrive site to find books from Canadian publishers. Take Dundurn (one of the larger Canadian-owned publishers) as an example.
Try doing an Advanced Search on this site for Dundurn. You’ll get a grand total of 3 titles which have been licensed by Overdrive to the PEI Library System. (And only 200 in the print catalogue.)
Dundurn has released over 1400 titles in ebook form. If (when?) the PEI system subscribes to desLibris, their readers will suddenly have access to all 1400 titles, which will all be available for Universal Loan.(Every book available to every reader all the time.)
Dundurn management, being a progressive group, are delighted with this new approach; they want people to read their books, and they know that a book that can't be found can’t be read.
In agreeing to participate in the Universal Loan model, publishers need to make a small leap of faith, trading revenue today from the sale of a few books for continuing exposure of all books.
Libraries likewise need to make that leap, trading their traditional method (buy the book and put it on the shelf) for a new one (rent all the books.)
desLibris is being formally introduced to libraries and publishers at the library conferences coming up this month (including the APLA conference next week in Charlottetown.) We hope it too will spark some interest.
