@Confuser: is clock a web development/marketing house? looks like an interesting group to work with.
Very. Been working on some very large News International websites using Nodejs.

Currently on a computer science degree. Just finished my 2nd year. Just started my placement for the year today actually with a company called clock as a software engineer. Currently running a minecraft network called Frostcast, average around 400+ players a night atm.

They are using a plugin called easing-slider. But I agree with Pinako, static for something like that would be better. No point using a blogging system for a simple jQuery based content slider, it's just overkill imo.

Basically Gradiente Eletronica had the trademark iphone 6 years before Apple, you can read more about it on the BBC article below.

Surely if you put your phone in silent mode the shutter sound isn't played?

It applies to everyone, regardless of what plan you are on.

The camera upload is permanent space. They have been doing that since they added the auto camera upload for their Android App.

The free space Mop is referring to is the offers that certain phone manufacturers are doing where you are given X gb for free for a year.

Me thinks they'll be too busy with this depending on the rumoured release in a few days time.

I'm running 2 mincraft servers off of 1 box, so yes there should be 2 jar processes. The only difference between the 2 is they are bound to different ip's (but same ports).

You're forgetting that MS Office has a massive share of the office processing market. It is the main software used by companies all over the world. They are also releasing a tablet which will have their new version of office on. Windows 8 is being released later this year which I have personally tried and is actually not too shabby even if it is just a developers release. With Windows 8, they will make money off of its apps, just like Apple does with its Macs. They are basically just doing what almost every other tech company is doing, using patents to make money. I don't see them going anywhere anytime soon. Apple on the other hand...  ::)

Its an ip address in hex format, which when converted to an IP address is 37.59.252.0 ;)

General Chat / Re: RIAA Vows to destroy Spotify
« on: July 21, 2012, 05:22:49 AM »
Yeah, but spotify isn't illegal. They pay royalties.

As I don't torrent much beyond the latest debian/ubuntu update, I'm not 100% familiar with them, but I was always under the impression that they were pretty unsecure if you seeded. (in a public tracker)
They are very insecure. Your IP address can be seen by anyone else downloading the torrent. How do you think people are caught? Grab a list of all the IP's downloading illegally, send it off to the ISP with a court order and they have evidence that you were downloading illegally.

Not sure about the US, but in the UK, according to our law, its not as simple as that as an IP address merely proves a location, not who. So for them to prosecute you, they would have to get computer forensics to look at your computer. So by the time they've done that, the time, cost and effort just isn't worth it for them.

Well JellyBean was announced yesterday, definitely giving iOS a run for its money.

Anyone know if a new nexus phone is coming out soon?

Technical Help & Server Administration / Ports

So I just moved over from a single dedicated server, to 2 dedicated servers for minecraft. The previous one had everything set up including multicraft.

These 2 didn't. So I installed apache, mysql, java (<- all using yum), and multicraft (includes FTP). Its running Centos 5.8 (Final) btw.

I also opened up the ports in iptables

However I'm getting binding errors if the server ever crashes and attempts to restart itself

22.06 12:47:50 [Server] WARNING The exception was: java.net.BindException: Address already in use

It works fine when I stop it and start manually though.

This is my iptables (pretty new to this but it seems to work)

I'm getting the problem on both servers so I'm assuming its something I've not done as I wasn't getting this problem on the previous one. Any ideas?
