Jokes in English

Q: Why did OM cross the road?

A: To get to another toolkit :)

Q: How many OM devs does it take to change a lightbulb?

A: Well first we need to abandon the old lightbulb holder because at a later date we may not be able to plug a floodlight in, bring in a new lightbulb holder and adapt it to multiple floodlights, meanwhile the engineering team has realized that this will only run green floodlights and has started rewiring the whole house.. :) The burnt out lightbulb is due to be fixed at a later date :)

Q: What is the difference between a professional photographer and OM user?

A: The OM user has to flash more often :)

Q: Why did the OM newbie log onto #openmoko?

A: Because they had not read:

    1. the wiki, and
    2. the topic

As then they would know you slide your finder up on the keyboard to get the numbers to enter your sim pin.

Q: What's the difference between an iphone and a freerunner?

A: One works but takes away your freedom, the other is free but needs your work

 Knock, Knock

 A Neo User

Q: What did the Neo say to the insomniac?

A: At least when you go to sleep you know you'll wake up!

Ancient chinese proverb: "Neo owner is man carrying wall charger"

Q: What's the difference between a brick and a freerunner?

A: The brick is heavier... slightly.

A: The brick comes in different colors.

A: You can't de-brick the brick.

A: A brick doesn't have to be recharged every twelve hours

A: A brick will reliably perform it's intended function out of the box, no configuration required.

A: You don't have to constantly re-flash / update the software on a brick

A: The brick will not buzz

A: The brick won't stop working after a day or two

A: The brick is waterproof

A: Bricks are cheap, reliable, and widely available.

A: A brick isn't designed to make phone calls.

Q: And what's the similarity?

A: The probability they ever reliably will.

Q: How to switch off this phone?

A: You have to write program :)

Q What if somebody important calls?

Q. Why is top-posting prohibited on our mailing lists?
Q What is your new year resolution?
A 640x480.

E-mail quotes:

Hello,


Yesterday I accidentally put my OM phone near LCD TV (Samsung).

SW on OM is QT Extended and when I press power button (to wake up mobile) TV immediately turn off.

I tried again and TV changed channel. So, on my phone this behavioure is repeatable.

Is it normal behavioure?

Thanks in advance

Mile
