  1. Please Michael be careful with your words, your Opera account I mean. I wouldn't like it be stopped suddenly.Their eyes are on you now, now more than ever it´s my suppose. I cannot tell your account couldn't be banned. If they were really smart they would filter… an … annoying… [Weather] solicitor. If they were…

  2. I have posted my complaints to Opera. They have an habit of accidentally deleting accounts intermittently so nobody is safe.I imagine I would get asked to remove offensive material but if they did ask me that, how would they phrase it?"We have a problem but we are working on it; until then can you…. "?I don't think so.I am looking into another site to post my pictures to. They are the most important part of all my work online and I have them on a hard drive so far. Plus I now know where to get reanalysis.

  3. I was just looking at anything I found to see if it would let me load more than one at a time.Without falling off the stage screeching.(High pitched women CAN NOT SING, I don't care who or what they are called nor how famous they are.)

  4. Use picasa for photos. just resize to a smaller size and you get a bunch in the 2gb capall the browser bite, and opera as of late … is just jiggy.

  5. I had thought you had to pay for cloud space. How many pics is 5GB?That reminds me you can have unlimited numbers of Google email addresses. I could just send myself a load of mail with attachments.Thanks for that idea though. I will pop over and have a look.Any idea what a cloud is, if it isn't what Google office and email is already. I mean it can't just mean access to their servers can it?E-mail storage has been doing that for years.

    No. But I do have a couple of groups on there and some documents on their office system.

  7. I've just been using Usenet up to now. I couldn't even be bothered to set up a web site. I have a couple of Google sites but I just never had any interest in them at all.When I looked at Opera it was just to do much the same I think. I never even bothered to checkout Unite.Sometimes I am a little bit slow.Ireally am annoyed with the local library services in my town. The block most of Opera, in fact they only got around to allowing some access because I kept badgering them.To think they could be offering this service instead of Facebook and all the other malware they do support.

    This seems to be exactly what MyOpera community offers to me.I can see it also offers broader scope to businesses, allowing them to use a community in the same way we community members do.There is a facility to house all a company's business throughout the city or county or region or country and around the whole globe. They would have their own product on a world wide web.Isn't that what ARPANET was intended for in the first place?

    CharacteristicsCloud computing exhibits the following key characteristics:Empowerment of end-users of computing resources by putting the provisioning of those resources in their own control, as opposed to the control of a centralized IT service (for example)Agility improves with users' ability to re-provision technological infrastructure resources.Application programming interface (API) accessibility to software that enables machines to interact with cloud software in the same way the user interface facilitates interaction between humans and computers. Cloud computing systems typically use REST-based APIs.Cost is claimed to be reduced and in a public cloud delivery model capital expenditure is converted to operational expenditure.This is purported to lower barriers to entry, as infrastructure is typically provided by a third-party and does not need to be purchased for one-time or infrequent intensive computing tasks.Pricing on a utility computing basis is fine-grained with usage-based options and fewer IT skills are required for implementation (in-house).Device and location independence enable users to access systems using a web browser regardless of their location or what device they are using (e.g., PC, mobile phone).As infrastructure is off-site (typically provided by a third-party) and accessed via the Internet, users can connect from anywhere.Multi-tenancy enables sharing of resources and costs across a large pool of users thus allowing for:Centralization of infrastructure in locations with lower costs (such as real estate, electricity, etc.)Peak-load capacity increases (users need not engineer for highest possible load-levels)Utilisation and efficiency improvements for systems that are often only 10–20% utilised.Reliability is improved if multiple redundant sites are used, which makes well-designed cloud computing suitable for business continuity and disaster recovery.Scalability and Elasticity via dynamic ("on-demand") provisioning of resources on a fine-grained, self-service basis near real-time, without users having to engineer for peak loads.Performance is monitored, and consistent and loosely coupled architectures are constructed using web services as the system interface.Security could improve due to centralization of data, increased security-focused resources, etc., but concerns can persist about loss of control over certain sensitive data, and the lack of security for stored kernels.Security is often as good as or better than other traditional systems, in part because providers are able to devote resources to solving security issues that many customers cannot afford.However, the complexity of security is greatly increased when data is distributed over a wider area or greater number of devices and in multi-tenant systems that are being shared by unrelated users.In addition, user access to security audit logs may be difficult or impossible. Private cloud installations are in part motivated by users' desire to retain control over the infrastructure and avoid losing control of information security.Maintenance of cloud computing applications is easier, because they do not need to be installed on each user's computer.

    Opera Unite reinvents the WebCloud computing and Web-based applications will never be the sameJune 16, 2009 — Oslo, Norway :doh: Opera today unveiled Opera Unite, a new technology that shakes up the old client-server computing model of the Web. Opera Unite turns any computer into both a client and a server, allowing it to interact with and serve content to other computers directly across the Web, without the need for third-party servers.Opera Unite makes serving data as simple and easy as browsing the Web. For consumers, Opera Unite services give greater control of private data and make it easy to share data with any device equipped with a modern Web browser.For Web developers, Opera Unite services are based on the same open Web standards as Web sites today. This dramatically simplifies the complexity of authoring cutting-edge Web services. With Opera Unite, creating a full Web service is now as easy as coding a Web page.Opera Unite is available in a special version of the Opera 10 desktop browser from Opera Labs. Opera Unite services run directly in the browser.It is easy to use Opera UniteDownload the Opera Unite build from http://labs.opera.com/.To start Opera Unite, click the Opera Unite logo in the lower left-hand corner of the browser and log in with your existing Opera ID — the same Opera ID used for other Opera services such as My Opera and Opera Link. Opera Unite will prompt you to register an Opera ID if you do not have one. Now you are ready to use Opera Unite. Simply access your Opera Unite services from the Opera Unite panel of the browser. New services can be installed from http://unite.opera.com/. Running a service will give you a direct Web address to the Opera Unite service on your device, for example: http://notebook.jondoe.operaunite.com/photo_sharing/, where “notebook” is the name of the local device serving content, “jondoe” is your username, and “photo_sharing” is the Web service being accessed. That link will also allow others to access the same Web service from your computer through their Web browser. You may also see which friends are using Opera Unite services on your My Opera Unite home page.Current Opera Unite services are as follows: File Sharing Securely share a file from your personal computer without waiting to upload it. First select the folder from which you would like to share files. Opera Unite then generates a direct URL to that folder. By giving that link to your friends, you can share files without routing through a third-party Web service. Web Server Run entire Web sites from your local computer with the Opera Unite Web Server. After selecting the folder containing your Web site, you can share and host it from the given Opera Unite URL. Opera Unite will automatically recognize index files and create the Web site as you designed it. Media Player Rock out wherever you are by accessing your MP3s and playlists from any machine. After selecting the folder containing your playlist, use the Opera Unite direct link to play your tracks directly in any modern Web browser. Photo Sharing Share your photos direct from your PC, without uploading them online. Once you select your photo folder, the photo-sharing service will create a thumbnail image gallery of your photos. Clicking the thumbnail will present the photo in its original resolution. The Lounge The Lounge is a self-contained chat service running on your computer. Your friends can access the chat room via the direct link, which will not require them to sign into any service. Depending on your privacy settings, you need only provide the generated password to your service in order for people to log in to your chatroom. Fridge Post a note on your friends’ virtual refrigerators. By sharing the direct link to your refrigerator, you and your friends, family or colleagues can exchange notes securely and privately in real time.

    So do I. Trying to understand how it works and its advantages also.

  11. Mine are from before Google+.I signed up to Google Groups thinking they were some sort of Usenet thing. It is very misleading.

  12. I've about had it with things a bit buggy.I'm going to get a decent hard drive, put Ubuntu Special Edition on it and then look for an early version of Opera.With Unite I should be able to send all my files to their server.Oh wait…All my files are on….:doh::rip: :bye:

    You're amazing!Thank you for trying Google Chrome!

    The message you get that Chrome has downloaded.There is nothing worse than a creep greasing your backside like that.

    The Linux equivalent of the first bit is nonexistent but the need for the second part is nonexistent.

  15. In May 2012 Slashdot announced that Facebook might be looking at buyiong Opera.The comments section rather debunks that: http://tech.slashdot.org/story/12/05/26/0634255/is-facebook-going-to-buy-opera(The comments that aren't opened are generally a waste of time to read.)You never know what is happening in business. But psychologically, the founder of Opera was not inclined to sell his love child.Certainly not to a ******* organisation for retards.Isn't it just typical of modern culture that a large corporation like FaceBook should challenge the best of the best performing good companies like Opera?Microsoft (which should have been cat-meat decades ago) has swallowed and ruined some really fine businesses in its time, for example. And if you looked, you would find hundreds more examples.The trick is not in how good your product is in this world, the way to greatness is to appeal to stupid…And have the funding.

Chrome/Chromium does not have one.*** And most likely your ISP monitors that and injects ads when you type a bad URL in.

Its not that hard to find.***The point was I can use autosuggest when I want to in firefox. When searching for something, I do like autosuggest (hell Google will get the complete search string anyway, why I should I not like autocomplete). But for everything else I prefer not sending google my keystrokes.

    Convincing?

    Rockmet uses Chromium. They simply added a couple of "plug-ins" to allow facebook, twitter integration. Best part, they managed to get $40 million in investment. Go figure. http://techcrunch.com/2011/12/19/rockmelt-vs-chrome/ [techcrunch.com]. As far as data collection, a small start-up, entering a cut-throat browser market, with facebook and twitter logins isn't going to collect anything?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RockMelt

    You mean Chrome looks like Opera plus Google integration?Every browser on the market today is an Opera ripoff, Opera was doing tabbed browsing for years before the open mozilla project, way before firefox and chrome came out.***Yeah, but Opera is basically Netscape with tabs.

    So it goes on…
