It's a VM. Take a snapshot.

Good idea. Unfortuantely, I read this too late.
I'm rearrangeing lots of furniture and computers in my house right and and rather unintentionally, my main use machine rebooted.
the one with the XP vm in it.
And guess what it said upon reboot: Time to Activate!
So now what the hell do I do.
I ran all those hacks that swear it does away with the activation, yet, fucked I am.

Any suggestions?
Can I boot with a CD and run the hacks again? How to activate XP without actually activating XP?

I woulkd consider it except A) that OS at the moment has some somewhat important data on it.
B) as soon as another OS can do everything I want to do on XP I'd be happy to.
Although I still think the windows UI is snappier than any Ive ever seen on linux.
Maybe I just don't have the hardware.

The most notorious war criminal of all time has done it again.

At a technology conference where he was posing as a philanthropist, Bill Gates released a swarm of mosquitoes into the room. "Malaria is spread by mosquitoes. I brought some. Here, I'll let them roam around. There is no reason only poor people should be infected."

The mosquitoes were malaria-free, of course, but it just goes to show you that this idiot just can't stop releasing bugs into the world no matter where he goes.

heh, that's a pretty good stunt.
He probably lost some credibility though.

Wait'll they find out that the mosquitoes didn't have malaria but... oops!
They forgot to test the mosquitoes for West Nile Virus. I'd love it if someone filed a multizillion dollar lawsuit against Gates for reckless endangerment.

Many moons ago I wrote a program that bounces tcp connections around. very handy I use it for zillions of thins.
I used to have a version built for windows, but I cant' findit and I don't have an install of msvc anymore.
Certainly there must be something for windows that does this?

I think the second part of this article is the more interesting one:

Microsoft blames netbooks for 11% loss and the layoff of 5000 employes.

Would that be the same netbooks for which they claim 70% market share? Sucks to be a monopolist in a market that's rapidly commoditizing, doesn't it?

netcat just lets you input and send output, I need to bounce an entire bidirectional connection.
Or can you point two netcats to each other? I never tried that.

nc -l -p <port>

on the server side...

and nc serverip server port

on the clientside.

You can for example pipe a tar stream over the net:

nc -l -p 8888 |tar -xvf -

tar -cO ~/* |nc othebox 8888

:-]

That's not what I want to do.
I want to listening on incoming connections, and when it's accepted, I want to make a new connection out somewhere static and have the socket go back and forth, ie bounce the connection.

Mine was called 'packetbouncer' but I no longer possess a windows dev environment in which to build it.

So, out of curiosity (and because I can), I installed Windows 7 (Beta) on a virtual machine.

It's slower than Vista, from what I can tell. It's also crash-tastic. I couldn't bring up IE without having a ton of assertions (to the point where I told it to suppress them all). When I tried to go to our web site (with Flash on it), it installed Flash (more assertions), then blue-screened the operating system.

Yeah, let's put this out for the public to use.

It was amusing, though, that the initial background graphic is of a fish.
A 'beta' fish.

fleeb,

I can't say my experience has been bad with Windows 7. It loads quickly, runs quickly, and I've yet to crash it. I can't say those things for Vista, which has been nightmarish to use.

While I wouldn't switch from OSX to Windows 7, it hasn't been anywhere near as bad as I expected it to be.
