 Hi!
 I was wondering - why are we not using forum for community?
 It's much  better to view, you can subscribe and unsubscribe to the
 topics you want and etc.
 The main
 Personally I don't like mailing list because it's not that comfortable
 and I can see no advatages of using mailing list instead of forum?
 Can anyone explain to me why we can't install

I very much dislike web forums. 

That aside, you can use your favorite newsreader and follow this list via
gmane, which is easily my preferred option. Kill the threads you're not
interested in, create filters and scoring rules...

 Sounds like you got stuck with the crappy US model contract. AFAIK it's only
 the USA (and now India) where you pay to *receive* calls as well as make
 them. Perhaps we're 'lucky' in Europe where inbound calls cost the callee
 nothing..

I just learned from an overseas friend about this pay for being called, and
it certainly feels outrageous to someone used to being called for free.

Alas, I guess it is a matter of time that this feature arrives over here...

 I thing gp is right, c might be better than c++ for small devices and

 Why whould plain C be better, what matters in the and is the binary that
 is spit out by the compiler. I don't see why a C++ compiler should produce
 a binary that is somehow less suitable for small devices.
 Theoretically two programs written it two totally different languages
 could still compile to identical binaries providing identical
 functionality. If your C program is indeed more suitable for small devices
 it just means your C++ compiler needs to be improved. You do realize that
 C++ was explicitly designed with embedded software in mind?

What I find surprising is that nobody has mentioned yet symbian s60. Its API
is C++, and loads of phones use it.

 Hey, that was very nifty indeed!
 Lets see if this is  a two-way gateway as well.

It is, but for some lists you must be member with the mail address you use
in the newsreader. I'm not sure about this one (even if I use it!)

gmane is really a wonderful service, I read all my lists through it.

There's already the possibility of reading the list as a NNTP group via the
gmane news servers... personally I don't like webbased forums.
