btw, you could sugest microsoft to add the features to their suitcase so
it
does what you want ;-P

Heh... Microsoft already does provide it, sorta. It's called DFS, and you have to pay an absurd amount of money for it. I'll stick with other solutions for now.

Fair enough. Does anybody actually do that though?

Yes. Think "outsourcing" and the picture becomes clearer.

I have a new problem.
I have a laptop, I just replaced the hard drive, and now I notice is has no cd rom drive with which to install new OS.
What to do?
I don't have an external cd rom drive. I don't have a usb drive, and this laptop probably wouln't boot it anyway. Suggestions?

Does Slackware still support install via FTP?

no, no floppy drive. It's got an ethernet port and a usb port.
I thin I can use my treo as a usb drive, but I don't think I can install a boot image on it.

Subject: New ICANN TLDs May Cause Internet Land Rush
wiryd writes "A new ICANN proposal would allow applications for
almost any TLD. From the article: 'Tourists might find information

about the Liberty Bell, for example, at a site ending in .philly. A

rapper might apply for a Web address ending in .hiphop. "Whatever is

open to the imagination can be applied for," says Paul Levins,
ICANN's vice president of corporate affairs. "It could translate into

one of the largest marketing and branding opportunities in
history."'"



Finally

Finally?

Fuck that.

Do you know what sort of problems this is going to cause? Do you know how many lawsuits this is going to open up?

Do you know what kind of marketplace confusion will happen?

Wait until there are clones of your own site in foreign nations with a different TLD, and there isn't a damn thing you can do about it.

I don't see any good coming out of this at all.

hmmm, yeah.... sounds bad to me.

I'm still for the .cum TLD for porn sites.

There's definitely going to be a lot of confusion. However, it could be argued that it is not DNS's job to enforce policy or create artificial scarcities in order to police abuse.

I don't see how adding one of 5 three letter extensions to a dns name does anything more than make peopel type more.
why can't mcdonalds own .mcdonalds any more or less than they own mcdonalds.com?

It's the same exact thing but less stupid.

Can you boot from a network device?

So I borrowed an external USB cd rom drive.
Funny thing is windows 2000 install boots up but gets a blue screen of death because it can't find the boot drive.
XP gets it right. Haven't tried linux yet.
Thanks all.

Most Linuxes will install from bootable USB media if your computer supports it, no problem.

It would seem that if a webmaster is aware of a need to make their URL's short ... they would fix the problem not by building in a meta aliasing framework, but rather by simply *making* *them* *short* to begin with.

yeah.
And moaning... lets see... why aren't they whining about phone numbers? Phone numbers have been around a lot longer than urls, and whereas they used to be useful, when they included letters for location, the all number 10 digit sequence is pretty tinyurlish.

yes, I'm pretty happy to remember my own phone number plus some of the old style short ones still arround...but thats it.

I used to remember around 20 phonenumbers I frequently used before the ISDN times. (well... my parents just had a pulse dial phone, no way to store numbers ;-)

Everyone's got speed dial now, and a lot of people change phone numbers frequently enough that they're not worth remembering.

It's possible that in the future, phone numbers could go away completely and be replaced by SIP addresses, which look a lot like email addresses.

Are you ready for SPIT? (SPam over Internet Telephony)
