Help! Need quick *nix advice :

I can't remember what file I need to create to make my Linux account forward a copy of all emails somewhere -

Is it .forward? In the root directory?

yeah, in your home directory.

nice idea.

use javascript to just blow IE out of the market because of users will have to wait on and on with ie6 (and even ie8 that calls itself 3 times faster)

I do that and I get yelled at because most people use ie so I have to optimize for ie.

Not to worry. YouTube is phasing out support for IE6. When IE6 users can't get onto YouTube anymore, they *will* upgrade. And then the rest of us can drop support for it as well.

Ford, you should sugest them to use a C64 to browse the web, its allmost as ancient.

I thought we had an electronics room...
I've got a mini jack plug, as in the female side.
I've got a male jack that plugs into it.
I'm wiring together an extension cord out of bits in my pile of crap.

Anyway, the male side has two wires coming out of it. Each wire has inside the insulation another insulated wire (which I assume is the hot lead or whatever you kids call it nowadays) and another wire between the inner-insulated wire and the outer insulation.
So there are 4 wires.

The female side has three contacts. I assume that on the male side, the in-the-middle wires are the ground/return/whatever you call it which can be wired together to the equivalent lead on the female side.
And the other two double insulated wires are left and right and go to one of the other two leads on the female side.
Now it's possible my female side is shorting somewhere, but for the life of me I can't wire it so it works correctly.
Does anybody know of a good exploded picture on the web of this scenario? I couldn't find any.

yeah, the bottom terminal (closest to the grip) goes to the outer shield
on both. Tip is generally the left channel, middle is right.

never buy hardware from these guys:

totally incompetent and hiding behind an ineffective support website.

Okay so I've almost convinced myself to spend a lot of money on a new machine.
A lot of money being $250.
So basically I'm looking for a new motherboard, chip and memory.
and at least 1 non sata controller so I don't have to buy drives too.
I go to tigerdirect and I'm overwhelmed by the information overload.
I decided to go with the tactic of pick the features that have the most options available.
So I want socket 775?
I want ddr3/ddr2 memory?
It's obvious but never occurred to me before that a 32 bit chip can only address 4 gig, so I'm going to post modern and get a 64 bit chip.
I figure I can get tons of memory and run a bunch of VMS of 32 bit oses if I need to, each one getting 4 gig.
Do I want an intel chipset? Do I want nvidia chipset?
And what the hell kind of chip do I want?
It's going to be running linux, so I imagine more cores is better?
After I pick intel chipset, there's options 945G, P45, Q35, G31 and x48.

It doesn't even give me a clue WHAT THESE OPTIONS ARE FOR...

But there's 12 options for p45 so I picked that.
Do I want asus, gigabyte? biostar? Didn't they go out of business?
This is all very confusing.

Nothing wrong with NVidia chipsets. Also nothing wrong with the older P/G35 chipsets if you don't need PCI Express 2.0 (and who does?)

Are you looking for discrete graphics or are you fine with integrated graphics?

Since I don't know what those are, I expect I'll be happy with either and would probably prefer the cheaper.
The most video intensive thing I'm ever going to do on this machine is watch a DVD in a VM window. And I'm probably never going to actually DO that.
What I'm more interested in is a lot of memory slots and large max memory possible.
Although from what I've seen, the biggest board I could find supports only 16 gig which admittedly I don't need right now, but most only support 8 and that's kinda sad to me.

I just noticed there's an amd64 install of ubuntuand an i386 but no mention of intel64bit.
Is there such thing?

ok, my bad, amd came up with it first so they get the name. heh, they win. :-)

no, intel had the itanic, which spoke (well... speaks? IG, how many of these are idling around in your customers racks?) IA64 which never realy took off, since windows won't run on them in an acceptable speed... (just if you boot them in "i386 emulation mode") so, AMD came up with something on their own, more compatible way, which then was called AMD64 which intel licensed and sells it as "em64t"

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

right, I had forgotten, but don't go all getting on Intel's case. THey build a genius architechture, they just didn't design it around windows, but it was fucking brilliant. The compatibility mode was so that it would run windows, so of course it sucked, but pointy haired bosses have no appreciation of good design just of what runs windows.
But things being what they are, I guess amd is the way.
Do they make linux build for ia64? That would kick ass.

Yes, you can run Linux natively on an Itanic. It runs about as well as it does on any other architecture, even though there's no compelling reason to actually buy one. Optimizing for Itanic requires special Intel compilers.

dothebart: since it's largely a colo facility, I wouldn't know if some customer somewhere has an Itanic or three stashed in their racks, but ... I personally have never seen one. Plenty of AMD and Intel, a bit of SPARC and the occasional POWER box, but no Itanic.

Ford: just buy a pre-built system. There isn't a lot of money to be saved by rolling your own anymore.
