flashplayer amd64 Debian squeeze

I switched to the official Debian contrib package that directly downloads the, now again available, 64bit flashplayer plugin.
flashplugin-nonfree 1:2.8.2
youtube works. imdb doesn't, but at least it doesn't freeze the browser/system any more.

Subscribe to! Flash sucks and I bet it will cause problems soon again.

Do a
sudo dpkg-reconfigure flashplugin-nonfree
or a
sudo update-flashplugin-nonfree --install

Maybe I'm just stereotyping (and please forgive me if I am), but I get the impression that many programmers are very...err...shall we say "negative" when it comes to the old "free will vs. determinism" thing, i.e. they tend to lean towards the latter...

To me this is perfectly understandable: if you're doing something like programming, you've got to have a very logical mindset, and I suppose that if you applied this mindset to life in general, it would tend to...

I want to archive this, before some moderator, doing his or her proper job, destroys removes the evidence in the name of harmony.

The only, and I mean only, help I have gotten here that actually worked was from "redazz". That's pretty pitiful

Doh, Didn't realize I needed at allocate at least 16MB of video memory to get 1440x900x16 bit display. After increasing memory to 16MB the new video modes are available:

# hwinfo --framebuffer|grep 1440
Mode 0x033c: 1440x900 (+1440), 8 bits
Mode 0x033d: 1440x900 (+2880), 16 bits
Mode 0x033e: 1440x900 (+4320), 24 bits
Mode 0x033f: 1440x900 (+5760), 24 bits
Mode 0x0361: 720x480 (+1440), 16 bits

Started writing the routines (as I have spare time) for the choreography of the computer controlled light strings on the Xmas tree. Everything from Kitt (the tv car) to just random display of lights. I have about twenty ideas so far but have only coded five or six. If I could have about forty would be optimum. Since I am using the parallel port to control the strings, lots of simple binary is involved. Still have to do all the soldering for the set up.

The last set of temp sensors...
