now... I'd call that a cool thing.

<this page requires google chrome to be displayed. please install the google chrome plugin>

use the IE shell, but replace all the rest.

Hmmmm ... interesting, but if someone's willing to install that, wouldn't they be willing to simply install the Chrome browser?

It's almost like a "remove brokenness plugin"

its often quoted that companies have intranet applications which require an old (broken) version of IE

since you don't replace the renderengine totaly but just optional per frame, I think its better.

You also don't have to sync two sets of bookmarks/passvoids/... since it just displays using the chrome render engine, but the http client should still be m$

so be carefull exposing your webservice if you use SVN to manage your content... (hint: this probably is also true for CVS)

who on earth checks out anything from their source control system right into production?
Does nobody have a staging area?

The problem is not that they go directly from svn to production, but that they use the checked out working copy *as* the production system.

For a traditional piece of software, the local equivalent of "make install" would bring over only the required files from the working copy to the production system directory. And of course there's nothing wrong with saying "r12345 has been fully tested; install it into production." Staging would be the same thing, except there's no need to move the actual files directly from the staging system to the production system.

For a "web app" written in an interpreted language designed for the web ... yes, I suppose there would be a very strong temptation to make the working copy and the production system's directory one and the same. If you do this and don't take measures to prevent the web server from serving up version control metadata, then you deserve to lose.

systems like Perforce don't *have* client-side version control metadata, so there's that. I don't see a big problem with managing e.g. PHP apps via SCM systems.

For strict QA management of compiled software, I don't agree with managing one's QA process solely via SCM. If possible, if there aren't too many platforms to support, it's better to build RPMs or whatever and test the RPMs. Then you are more completely insulated from compiler bugs, environment discrepancies, or other human errors that might cause the build process to fail.

My graphics card is acting quite strangely.

I have an nVidia GeForce 9800 GTX graphics card.  It's supposed to be a fairly powerful card, and in fact, it can give me some truly beautiful graphics.

But, lately, since updating the drivers, and clearing out any dust in the computer, the thing has been freezing up, and blue-screening my computer.  I think it has been overheating, too.

I hate the idea of having to buy another graphics card, but I'm guessing it's the only thing I can do right now.

Try reseating the card and any cables.  Make sure you have plugged in the extra power connector to the video card if you need it.  I made that mistake once.

downgrade the drivers to what they were before?

checked the nvidia control panel for the hardware monitoring? (I believe that all nvidia products have a temperature monitor. this used to be exposed by default in the nvidia control panel, but nowadays it's hidden and you have to enable it with a registry hack (google "coolbits registry tweak") or one of the various third party nvidia overclocking tools.)

fyi, the ATI 5850/5870 are newly available and MUCH faster than the 9800 gtx. even the ATI 4770 might be a reasonable choice (smaller card, but built on a 40nm process and should be very efficient)

I tried removing the card, removing the 'shroud' around the card, and blowing out any possible dust therein... but the card still overheated.

So, I bought an eVGA GeForce GTX 275 card, figuring if it didn't address the problem, it would at least be an upgrade.

It overheats, too.

The driver apparently leads to overheating.

The card does come with a small cord that you plug into a GPIO header on the motherboard... if I could find such a thing on the motherboard, it might help.  I think it is used to help regulate the fan on the graphics card, making the fan blow harder when the card is used for gaming.

Never clean the dust out of a computer. It's like the muck in the car engine, you clean it out and it stops working.

That might be the lesson to learn here, but in this case it was more a matter of updating the drivers that got me in trouble, I believe.

Oh, yeah, and RivaTuner is the tool that helps tune the video card.  I am currently working with the assumption that the 'auto' settings for the card's fan got fucked up with the upgrade, and have retuned them.  We'll see how well that works.
