Did somebody find the button to IRC-chat, or is this a subtle way to say, stay out of IRC-chat BongoWongo

latest alpha :-)

Wow really looks nice.
Which CMS did you use? Or did you code this all yourself?

Took a peek at the source code, and say it is joomla
Does anybody know if there is also a plugin for Drupal which does the slide things with pictures?

We all have our full blown projects :)

hehe, that is a really good one. What a pity that you've deleted your account Timothy. I still have some popcorn left..

Looks like my main contribution so far (and Timmy's) was to provide some light relief for the developers ;D

Anyhow, shall we start a sweep stake on how long it will be before he's back under a different name? I'll put a Euro on a week.... Can you set up a scan on IP address to check??? <VBG> (New way to raise venture capital perhaps?)

Look he is obviously frustrated, by himself or by your reaction, does not matter. But he raised some good points.
Also can wierbeard65 keep is sexlive private, what you do with the devs, can stay in #dev ;)

This is not a constructive discussion
I see two people who do not want to step off from their standpoints
Agree that you disagree.

Why not set up a framework of management, it is open source.
I will apply for CEO or CFO with bonus ;)

Thom and Andrew,

I'm still not going to get personal on you, but since you have on me, I can't help but defend your attack on me and my credibility.

a) I don't see dollar signs.  But a number of people have suggested that some funding (no matter how small) may help get peripherals certified, build development beds, etc.  That's in everyone's interest.  I was, until recently, prepared to make an investment of cash into the project myself.  No one in their right mind would do that without understanding where it would go and that it would be well invested.

b) I have proven I can lead.  Maybe not to you, but are you going to vet and interview everyone who tries to contribute before they are given the opportunity?  I have successfully started, and sold, a successful company that used open source software for about 60% of the code base.  The software won a number of national awards, and is still a market leader in its niche.  And yes, I've been involved in open source since 1991/2 when I was involved in writing Ethernet drivers for an early linux kernel.  But I don't code any more (it takes up too much time, and I have a family that comes first).  I help develop strategies for top brands at a global consulting firm, especially within telecom and media.  I'm not going to post a resume on a public forum.  But neither am I trying to lead anything here, so I don't feel compelled to.  I'm asking that there BE leadership and consensus, and not dictatorship.  I don't care who leads, just so long as anyone can be involved and that their time is not wasted.

c) PR is about being proactive as well as reactive.

d) Management and strategy should never be an afterthought.  It is never to early to consider which way to go and how to get there.  You've obviously had some bad experiences with top-heavy management, but that's no excuse for lack of management.

e) If there are enough resources, stop winging that there aren't.  You started this thread.  A number of people stepped up, and you pushed most of them away.  Nice job.

I've wasted enough time already, so I'm going to leave it at that.

All very valid points, worth thinking constructively about.
Cannot see why everybody is trying to bite his ankles, other than he has a bad rep??
Funny to see how you will validate my 2 cents then.

On a clean linuxmce 0810 intallation.
Plug in Cardreader + 32mb SD card with pictures
Gets recognised and save to public
But cannot find if I browse for pictures.
The same thing happens with external HD
Gets recognised, asks where to save etc etc
But cannot see any movies.

I did a resync media through webadmin, but to no avail.

I think I am doing something very basic wrong, but what.

The Asus EEE pc 206, you can also mount to the back of your monitor, the correct mount is also supplied by this product.
I think with some inventinuity it is also possble to use a monitor, vesa mount and the eee box and hang it all to the wall.

I sense great anger and frustration, so I will accept that you talk in such a stern matter and put that in perspective.
To reply to you remarks concering "Between the users who refuse to listen to what the people who actually know what they're doing..."
This can be a communication problem, and with every communication problem it is from both sides.

Well as an outsider, I can give you my 2 cents (eurocents).

I can remember my X10 chat with somebody in IRC, where I was advised/ordered to get Zwave.
My "but" was put down in a harsh manner, but ok I accept I am the new guy........but I do not want Zwave for my own reasons, I kicked a little
but then I hushed, but I am still stubborn, so getting PLCbus now :P.
It is all about communication and I sense this is a different league of communication, because a lot of hardcore coders make and break the project here.
That is ok..........but there are also consumer idiots like me....
In normal companies it works like this:
Inventors/Developers -> Marketing -> Consumer
Consumer -> Marketing -> Inventors/Developers
You know why these steps excist........because they all speak a different language......
e.g. Philips (great ideas, bad marketing)

I think you can see also LinuxMCE like this, I am a consumer, I have nothing to really add, except user experience, tedious comments and stupid questions, but they should be respected.
Also deleting posts is always bad, because you take away a voice, people tend to get angry then, it is better to explain in a nice open manner why they should try a different approach.
I hope this little view of life is read with less emotion and a Dutch beer in the hand.

Thanks, now I know what I am going to eat tonight
