My problem was establishing an sftp connection and transferring files over it, but this has fixed my problem good and proper.
- The bigger the hat, the smaller the farm.
- The shorter the nickname, the more they like you.
- Whether it's the opening of Parliament, or the launch of a new art gallery, there is no Australian event that cannot be improved by a sausage sizzle.
- If the guy next to you is drinking and swearing like a wharfie he's probably a media billionaire. Or on the other hand, he may be a wharfie.
- There is no food that cannot be improved by the application of tomato sauce.
- On the beach, all Australians hide their keys and wallets by placing them inside their sandshoes. No thief has ever worked this out.
- Industrial design knows of no article more useful than the plastic milk crate.
- All our best heroes are losers.
- The alpha male in any group is he who takes the barbecue tongs from the hands of the host and blithely begins turning the snags.
- It's not summer until the steering wheel is too hot to hold.
- A thong is not a piece of scanty swimwear, as in America, but a fine example of Australian footwear. A group of Aussie sheilas wearing black rubber thongs may not be as exciting as one had hoped.
- It is proper to refer to your best friend as "a bastard". By contrast, your worst enemy is "a real bastard".
- Historians believe the widespread use of the word "mate" can be traced to the harsh conditions on the Australian frontier in the 1890s, and the development of a code of mutual aid, or "mateship". Alternatively, Australians may just be really hopeless with names.
- The wise man chooses a partner who is attractive not only to himself, but to mosquitoes.
- If it can't be fixed with pantyhose and fencing wire, it's not worth fixing.
- It's considered better to be down on your luck than up yourself.
- If invited to a party, you should take cheap red wine and then spend all night drinking the host's beer. (Don't worry, he'll have catered for it).
- If there's any sort of free event or party within 50 kilometres, you'd be a mug not to go.
- On picnics, the Esky is always too small, creating a food versus grog dilemma that can only ever be solved by leaving the food behind.
- The phrase "a simple picnic" is not known. You should take everything you own. If you don't need to make three trips back to the car, you're not trying.
- Unless ethnic or a Pom, you are not permitted to sit down in your front yard, or on your front porch. Pottering about, gardening or leaning on the fence is acceptable. Just don't sit. That's what backyards are for.
- The tarred road always ends just after the house of the local mayor.
I said click, sucka.
My latest problem was getting the Adobe Flex Builder 2 Alpha for linux to work on my 64bit, fedora 8 notebook. To get it to work, I need to install a bunch of 32bit apps.. Including the Java runtime.
This almost put me off doing it, but I thought I'd have a quick google and see whats shakin'. Well, I found this link and although its for Fedora Core 7 officially, it worked beautifully with Fedora 8.
I am now a slight bit further forward on my flex building crusade.
While reading over the Mozilla Developer Centre tonight I noticed some nice CSS changes for Firefox 3.
To think that maybe one day we can develop for all browers without duplicating code or making special requirements. Ahhh...
Anyway... back to reality.
This bloke is very funnny. His name is Rhod Gilbert.
Zotero is basically a research manager. You can add research to it for uni and have it keep track of notes and all sorts of things. It looks awesome. I havent played with it properly yet, but keeping track of things like research (or anything really) is not one of my strong points and with my next uni subject starting in 2 weeks, this could be a god send!
Zotero: The Next-Generation Research Tool
On a recent time-wasting expedition from my Uni Assignment, I stumbled across a very nice list of commonly used applications and their open source equivalents.
Its well worth a look. Especially, if like me, you hate Microsoft, Globalisation and Corporationism.
