If net neutrality is destroyed then it's all over, this affects North America and the rest of the world. To everyone who says "I live in Europe so this doesn't affect me" most web servers are hosted in the US so it affects you just as much in this aspect, it would most likely affect Canada first in the full aspect before anything then has a high potential to spread to the rest of the world, America is all about money, corruption and power, why do you think the US government sends troops to steal resources from other countries? The list goes on forever, imagine how clueless we'd be without Snowden. In short, what will happen if net neutrality is shot down is that ISPs like Comcast/Verizon/Time Warner Cable/AT&T will make you buy bundled website packages for the websites you use (ex. $10 for Google/YouTube/Gmail/Google Maps/Google Play, $10 for Amazon/eBay, $10 for Wikipedia/Bing/Yahoo/aol/MSN, $20 for Steam/PSN/XBL/WoW, $20 for Netflix/Hulu, etc.), all website owners will have to pay a fee that only major corporations will be able to afford (there will never be a new YouTube, new Netflix, new Google, new deviantART, new Amazon, new Facebook, etc.), your internet will become slow and your bill will skyrocket, small websites will be deleted and the internet will become restricted, we may have to pay high taxes just for schools/colleges/hospitals to use internet which would still be throttled, wifi hotspots will no longer exist, this is the government trying to censor what everyone says like they do on TV, the reason you don't hear about net neutrality on TV is because the government has full control over what people say on TV and they want the internet to be the same way where we can't upload videos or post how we feel about topics because the government is afraid of people knowing the truth, it'll get worse as time passes, this is our only one chance to prevent the internet from becoming a stone-aged dystopia, the only people who are benefited by this are the CEOs of Comcast/Verizon/etc.. This is worse than SOPA so one of the most important things we'll ever do is making sure that net neutrality isn't killed. The only way to restore net neutrality is to write this exact sentence somewhere on the FCC form's comment box (copy and paste it): I'm requesting that the FCC reclassifies Internet Service Providers As Title II Common Carriers.

Bullet; Red Watch the video (DO EXACTLY WHAT IT SAYS OR ALL OF THIS WILL BE FOR NOTHING. IT'S SHORT AND EASY TO FOLLOW.)

Bullet; Red The Official FCC Form with a short and simple tutorial on how to complete it: gizmodo.com/how-to-yell-at-the… COPY AND PASTE THE COMMENT YOU WRITE ON THIS FORM INTO NOTEPAD INCASE IT GIVES YOU AN ERROR THE FIRST TIME, do not use profanity and do not say anything immature, make 100% sure it gives you a Confirmation Number when you click Continue, sometimes you won't get it the first time, if that happens do it again and it'll work, make sure you're doing the Standard form and not the Express form (this link takes you to the Standard form), and MOST IMPORTANTLY! MAKE 100% SURE YOU WRITE THIS SOMEWHERE IN THE COMMENT BOX WHEN YOU'RE DOING THE FORM! IF YOU DON'T WRITE THIS WORD FOR WORD IT WILL NOT WORK! I REPEAT,
MAKE 100% SURE YOU WRITE THIS SOMEWHERE IN THE COMMENT BOX WHEN YOU'RE DOING THE FORM. IF YOU DON'T WRITE THIS SENTENCE DOWN WORD FOR WORD (OR JUST COPY AND PASTE IT) IT WILL NOT WORK: I'm requesting that the FCC reclassifies Internet Service Providers As Title II Common Carriers. <- THAT'S THE SENTENCE YOU NEED TO WRITE IN THE COMMENT BOX WHEN YOU'RE DOING THE FORM, IF YOU DON'T WRITE THAT EXACT SENTENCE WORD FOR WORD THEN IT WILL NOT WORK, I REPEAT, IT WILL NOT WORK IF YOU DO NOT COPY AND PASTE THAT EXACT SENTENCE I WROTE. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME THEN WATCH THE VIDEO, IT'S SHORT AND SIMPLE BUT IT EXPLAINS EVERTHING.

Bullet; Red Put the link to this journal in your subcomment (the faded text that appears below all of your comments), if you don't know how: Settings > Comment Signature > Paste this link in the box fav.me/d7inefr , if you still don't understand then click this link, it's a short YouTube video I made showing you how to put this link in your subcomment. bit.ly/1msmfIl

From PfaccioxxThe internet is in danger! Save Net Neutrality!

The ISP is planing to do away with Net Neutrality, allowing big name sites to pay to have their sites load faster wile slowing down smaller sites. This goes against the idea of the free and open internet and will hurt everyone except for the most rich and powerful people on earth. Don't believe me? Here are some video links to explain what killing Net Neutrality would do.




and here are some links to some text based explanations:
gothamist.com/2014/04/24/net_n…

Want to fight back? To start here are some petitions you can sign:

act.freepress.net/sign/interne…

Once you've signed the petitions find out what else you can do to ensure the internet remains free and open. Go to www.savetheinternet.com/what-c… to find out more ways you can help save Net Neutrality, re-post this journal and spreed the word about this as much as you can

[Also there will be a public rally on May 15th to save the net, if you want to take part in a you can find more info and RSVP at: act.freepress.net/survey/DC_Ma… ]

ntim007 dakoder simobortolo Started on a new HTML5/JS desktop today, hopefully it won't be discontinued in one week like virtually all of my other projects... I'm aiming not for it to be like Galaxy html OS - but more like a platform for other people to build on. So the first thing I might do is make it run CloudDesk apps! (Remember I was going to do that with some Galaxy OS version?... but then abandoned it) Anyway, here's a first look: sta.sh/0i91dwekvqa

Maybe you could let CloudDesk users choose a desktop environment, like in Linux??? As in, downloads from the CloudDesk app store. (Examples of Linux desktop environments - Google SmartSearch them - GNOME 3, LXDE, KDE etc.) Just an idea, anyway.

Looks nice ! Sorry I didn't notice the mention earlier (I recommend sending notes, it's more noticeable).

Anyways, in case you wanna make running CloudDesk apps possible. You should limit which apps can be used. Only a limited set of apps will be allowed (copyright issues otherwise).

Well, choosing a desktop environment would require lots of maintenance works. Besides, symbiose web OS already does that.

Wow Symbiose is awesome! I've used the GNOME desktop and Elementary OS before in Linux distros, the online attempts to re-create them are pretty good! (Not quite up-to-date though in terms of GNOME...) Are the task manager and browser OK? (i.e. ones that you made)

Sure, but add an info icon in the titlebar buttons showing app info (author, source, ...)

I see what I can do;) I can give you the files to Google Search and Maps 2.0 and 2.0.1 (though there are some bugs that I have no desire to fix) and my app Unit Converter and Calculator (where the Unit Converter has been done in collaboration Ntim007 and there is a bug in the temperature conversion) and if you want i can give you the files of the plan for collection of sounds.

I don't get what it's for, the current 'pressed' effects (Webkit) are different to this (in look, as well as css).

:iconntim007:
ntim007 Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2013
Well, it's for Firefox support, but I agree the contrast effect looks ugly, but you could just use the drop shadow effect.

There were some problems with positioning with things, so I just made sure it looks good on my Chromium, not other browsers (see my other comment)

ntim007 Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2013
I don't know why you had to drop support for non webkit browsers just for the reflection thing. I mean the reflection is using a non standard CSS property that shouldn't be used. You could just drop reflection support for non-webkit browsers. I mean that's what i hate the most about webkit, they implement something awesome, pretend it's CSS 3, then get users out of that.

:icondevilishdb:
DevilishDB Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2013
Nah, I think you can do it with Firefox too actually.

:iconntim007:
ntim007 Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2013
For your mac online dock, you could make the pressed effect work on Firefox. Just search for "filters MDN".

:icondevilishdb:
DevilishDB Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2013
I dropped support for non-Webkit browsers since things like reflection only work on new Webkit browsers (correct me if I'm wrong, BTW I could do it as another element with opacity but that would require much more code). I guess I could do the pressed thing, maybe not everything like reflection.

One element reflection for Firefox : jsfiddle.net/mtorromeo/eUmR9/
You can achieve something similar with IE or Old Opera.

Firefox is staying default in Ubuntu 13.10 ! But Chromium might by default in 14.04... :(
