I would like too find an assortment of top-end Linux forum-packages, free and costies, that are supported by a base forum creator, ready to install from Yumex availables... It's obvious to a few by now that I'm an extreme thinker.. and that I process thought way beyond "off the wall", way beyond most folks capacity to understand... It's because I removed my "ceilings to thought processing"...

I've been bouncing around the Net, in and out of forums that treat visitors badly all-ways at any op.. It's as if each forum has its "demonic guard-dog spiders" who attack and Sting everything too new for them to grasp, by attacking the poster personally, in all the ways that would hurt their own feelings... Seems I needs my own forum, or to become a member of a forum that is conducive to deep thinkers ways and output.. A forum that doesn't need my PC's resources to operate, because my towers are bottom-barrel low resource antiques which couldn't even begin to handle a forum's requirements, is the why, that there are freebie forum packages available over the Net... There should be all the available forum packages in Yumex, given that RedHat's Fedora will eventually dominate the computer world scene, setting all other OS's back to coal-burning, horse and buggy, and the steam engine, and right into the big bad "B".."bankruptcy", Oooo!..

I've got in mind, top-end think-tank forums, where ever the h they are hiding..?? and "a closed-door thinkers "coffee-houseish off the wall forum" where geniuses can talk honest-real, and dirty, and speculative state of the art reality, without a pretend "god mod street parent gooey doilyied priestess" coming down on them with the Insane's M.A.D., and anti-xxx, and anti-love, godly style rules, to protect their and the boxed, masses mindless simian-class offspring, from the real-peoples realities... Leave the critters in their cages, and keep them out of our honest reality.. They couldn't handle any of it any-ways.. Touching our reality would only make them scream and mess themselves, and "bleed new wounds", and them finding their needs to try to hurt us, to silence truth... The thing is, it's our extreme, sometimes "off the wall" thinker reality that powers and empowers their lives and world.. The masses fight against the good base, while they respect the powerful evils, from their no-base.. It's That!, which we wants to keep out of our thinkers forums... Letting a few of them non-thinkers into thinkers forums, is like "cutting loose an "itchy-bum monkey-troop" in a china shop".. is why there is a great-need for a super Linux forum-package.. One that can't be hacked and cracked by the mindless g'rilla-class...

Itunes

I much prefer Gpodder and gtkpod if it works for you.

I wouldn't have spyware bloatware itunes on my machines. Windoze or BSD.

It's not a subject to get into on this forum.

Do a search on .torrent files
File sharing over the internet
Applications like transmission, ktorrent, vuse, utorrent

Websites like the pirate bay, monova, demonoid

And you'll have your answer.

Be advised that there are risks associated with downloading copyrighted material for free.

I haven't read all the gtkpod docs yet, but it sounds like it requires you to jailbreak your iPhone before gtkpod can work with it. Is there another Linux solution that works with stock iPhones?

To me, as a 4-year user/admin of Linux servers and Desktops, it is obvious that you have little to no knowledge and experience in Linux. If you did, you would know that there will always be large number of different distributions, that if your PC's are too old you need to pay for hosting and your own domain, and that there are several dozens of excellent forum software packages for you to choose, all with their own advantages and disadvantages. If you use Google, or even check the forums you like visually and functionally, you will very soon find what you like.

As for your free-thinking hype, from your post one can only THINK that you are on heavy drugs. I happen to be member of MENSA with IQ in upper 1% of worlds population, but I firmly believe, and my 10-years of experience on various forums thought me, that there MUST be order and structure in communication with others. Ultimate freedom yields ultimate chaos. Same goes for thinking process without structure. If you constantly jump from one thinking topic to another you will never complete whole assessment process and reach right conclusion and decision.

I hate to be told what I can not do, but I fully understand that compromises must be made so you can live with others, even if you and one more person would live on the deserted island.

Forum you desire would be full of hateful remarks and private wars, and not having moderators to keep order you would very soon have just a bunch of meaningless posts not relevant or even not related to Linux, since Linux is all about communication and cooperation.

I know that you will perceive this as an personal attack, but please think about what I said and please do not post in this tread again since you are WAY OFF the topic.

Quoting: "it is obvious that you have little to no knowledge and experience in Linux."

Yup! That's me.. "Baddd me"... I compensate and excel in other ways...

Seems if I established a forum, it would be thht in no-time like you say.. unless it was very closed, and by invitation only, like the good ones are.. but that would require a full time operator(s).. and lots of funds, and even an office...

No offence taken from your professional style post, sir.. You sees it like it is, and says it like you sees it.. You should be proud of yourself...

Seems I need to hook up with a think-tank group which is conducive to my "off the wall" ways... In that light, it seems I'm never gonna find a suitable forum, to share bits of these 1400 untapped technologies, and my open-ceiling wisdoms...

I checked out a few so-called "think-tanks".. They turned out to be, like I was "the mummy-bird feeding a hundred starving, screaming, pooping, baby birds"... thht on that!.. None of the forum's members had any 'semblance of a functional mind.. All they did was pump and pump and pump for more and more new data.. then used it for their on the go manuscripts, and published my stuff as theirs, like "the minnow that got away with the bait from the hook"...

I tried Yahoo blogs, ("groups").. but someone vengeful got into one, somehow, and locked me out, so I copied, then deleted the whole dern thang...

I have a small Yahoo sorcery groups thingy running, but I maintain it closed to everything but readers, because it started getting silly viagra and such "catbird-adverts", cluttering up the thread...

I sees your points.. I don't see any way I could do up a forum on my own, without it self-destructing as you say... Thanks for your keen expert advice... But it ain't over.. I'll always be looking for a viable solution to this... But for now I'm a forced to go it solo and secret...

Can you offer a few links to reputable thinker forums..?

And maybe one day there will be a Linux solution to this need..?

I was tested at a state of the art biofeedback lab with a lot of weird electronics.. I was the highest in alpha and beta emissions and control, of the 23,000 they had tested... On occasion I do "hands-on healing"..

Congrats on your elite Mensa standing...

Thank you for the links (and yes, I have heard of Google). As with every procedure I've come across so far they either require you to jailbreak your phone *or* they only work with iOS 3.x (they don't actually work with iOS 4.x due to critical changes).

Apparently I'm being greedy by wanting something that works with my iPhone 3GS, which runs iOS 4.1, and not wanting to jailbreak it.

menucoder can convert swf to avi. There should be also GUI's for Menucoder.

Unhappy

I a serious electronic music producer and I would LOVE some more linux support. I use the usual mocosoft xp os and it doesnt give me probs, but I would love to be able to use my Host Applications and VST's in nice easily set linux distro. I have tried a few out there but none of me seem to be fully compatible with my essentials.

It would be amazing if there was a way to run Propellerhead Reason in linux. I know that it is possible with wine but I havent the time or patience to start that lil project. And I usualy find only support for "run-of-the-mill" hardware. Like onboard soundcards, but then again I haven't been looking.

I was pleased to see LMMS available on Windows (I think mac too) along with nix. But it doesnt work with my setup really. But thats a whole other topic

So yea, more music production support for commonly used hardware and software, that what I could go for. A big healthy serving of some open-source WHOMP-WHOMP!

oh yea, i know about the "focused" versions of ubuntu studio, which I had high hopes for, plus I've tried openMamba LiveStudio, 64Studio, puredyne, and fedora. Nothing comes easy, and when it does seem to work, it works like its moving sideways. I usually can get rid of the all the artifacts even with no sound playing. And I also seem to get channels appearing in the wrong slot. It seems to me to be a pulseaudio issue all around.

so yea, another software suggestions is one that makes setting up all your choices (like sound-systems for example) and then it doing the work. linux would be more accessable to the laymen like me if it were simplier to setup and change if it doesnt work right. i would love to be able to choose between pulse, alsa, oss, or esound with one simple program. i just tell it what i want, and it does the grunt work. hell, i dont even know which sound system is the base and which is on top of it. too confusing for us tarts i guess

oh one more thing, this is only me trying to get a home computer with on board audio to work, i wont even dare to think of the kaos if i tried this in the studio.

sry if i complain too much, but i need to vent about the past 3 months somewhere. I still do really enjoy learning and trying new things though. Keep it coming! Biggie ups all you devs out there! You are the backbone of the revolution
