    When did Paula post this one?

    The answer is like one screen up, without any loading...

    Did Paula went back in time or Twitter is really slow for the past 15 days?

    Luke is able to install on as many "physical hosts" as he likes, so long as none of them is a "Physical Server". I'm not sure why a Physical Server isn't a physical host, but there you are.

    Maybe it's from the same school of Chinese philosophy that asserts that "a white horse is not a horse".

    The important thing is that 0°N 0°E, which is more than 300 miles offshore, has 11mbit internet service for sale.

    It is truly a good thing that the Greenwich meridian happens to intersect the equator in the open sea. I bet there are nuclear missiles targeted there.

    Maybe you can install it on clients but not servers?

    Or desktops but not servers

    Who's got a dirty mind? I buttumed that meant "No Nooner", as in, no going home for lunch for a quickie.

    The Lloyds one isn't really a WTF is it? If some one has managed to get into your bank they cant transfer money out without having access to your phone...

    They hide the digits so as to stop unauthorised people getting hold of your number and using it as another way of carrying on their nefarious activities...

    Secondly, the being located off the west coast of africa is quite common if you get your long and lat the wrong way round, we spend a fun few days watching out fleet of company bin wagons pottering round in the sea when the company that supplied the trackers screwed up their data feed to us a few years back.

    You don't think censoring some of the digits of something that isn't a number isn't a bit of a WTF? Admittedly, a better solution doesn't spring to mind immediately.

    As shown by BBC and HomeDepot, TRWTF is using Windows for digital signage

  • Tsaukpaetra (disco) in reply to TimeBandit

    I've been trying to find alternatives for this for ages actually! What software do you recommend?

  • Tsaukpaetra (disco) in reply to JBert

    Good luck drawing with a keyboard though, amiright? :stuck_out_tongue:

  • TimeBandit (disco) in reply to Tsaukpaetra

    Depends on your requirements. What do you want to display ?

  • Tsaukpaetra (disco) in reply to TimeBandit

    Ideally an HTML5-based slideshow with websockets. I tried getting Chrome to work on Linux with the hardware I've been provided, but you can see the framerate drop to about 1 in 20 seconds once it finally loads up.

    ... My hardware isn't all that good, 1 GHz proc, 512Mb Ram, No PAE (It's an older x86 processor). Runs Windows 7 well enough, with complications...

  • Yamikuronue (disco) in reply to Tsaukpaetra

    ChromeOS? That'd be my crack at it.

  • Tsaukpaetra (disco) in reply to Yamikuronue

    ChromeOS usually isn't compiled for non-PAE CPUs though. :(

    What DM are you running on it ?

    With that limited hardware I would try running bare X window and loading only Chrome in kiosk mode.

    Let me know if you need help how to do that

    Ah, you're right. They forgot the "switch to manual SVG entry" button for the keyboardistas. :fa_keyboard_o:
  • Tsaukpaetra (disco) in reply to Yamikuronue

    I'll try that!

    I believe XFCE, though I'm not at my workbench so I don't recall what I last had.

    Actually, this is very close to what I had going on my experimental configuration for Raspberry Pi 1a. The major problem there is that Chrome's memory requirements would somehow get the network stack to die, and pages would only load part-way through.

    Of course, dev time ran out and we needed a solution now, so I ended up provisioning five of my IBM T42 laptops in Windows to do just that. Made a quick batch file, set it as shell, and Boom! Instant digital signage. Kinda. Apparently Chrome's "Website is offline, try to reload when possible" functionality doesn't work right at the moment in Kiosk mode :wtf:.

    If you want, I can easily build a Webkit-based fullscreen browser with Qt, and make it so that if the page fail to download, it will retry in a couple seconds.

    And since it's build with Qt, it can be compiled to run on Linux, OSX or even Windows. You could even run it on a Raspberry Pi.

    'quite common' depends on your location. Not so common if you live at >90deg east or west (as well as most other locations on the earth).
  • dkf (disco) in reply to mratt

    Being located off the coast of West Africa is quite common when your data is shit.
