Linux "Today I pushed out a new ISO of my Wayland Live CD project, which is named for my favorite celebrity. For this new Wayland CD, I wrote a new login manager with Bash and Zenity and Expect (and Script) that fully runs on a Wayland server (weston). Now X is no longer involved in the boot process, and X does not start, (unless you use an X application with xwayland), because I replaced LightDM with the new loginmanager."

RE[5]: No Torrent?

Well there isn't any. I would need to move. There is no cable anywhere near here, we only get ADSL (pppoa!). Currently I only have 3 Mbps down stream. The maximum that I could have in the area where I live is 8 Mbps. Changing the provider would not help, because if there aren't better lines in the ground, well there aren't any better lines in the ground.

Only 3 Mbps? Luxury, luxury! Oh, we used to dream of a connection that fast! In my day, we connected our web servers with nothing but a rotary phone and an accoustic coupler modem... over a party line!

Seriously though, my sister lives in a semi-rural area & the fastest connection available there is 1.5 Mbps down/0.5 Mbps up (WiMax) - with the only alternatives being satellite (slower and more expensive), 2G (MUCH slower and more expensive), or dial-up.
