Anybody know if there's still an oracle personal edition available?
I need to do some development in oracle, and was looking for something free to play with.
Their website makes it seem like they rename all their products every version.

well. you get it for free, but it ain't free? Nobody whiping your ass for free? tell me more.

And... Once you caried truckloads of money to oracle to get their database, letting them educate you how to use it is about twice as expensive. And neither anybody from oracle will show up and get shit up and running as that article may sugest.

So I was on a call last night and I went to lean over to get something, and of course the wire for my cordless headset got caught on something, and... no more headset.
I go through quite a few of these.
So now I'm wondering if there's a (relatively cheap) wireless headset for my cordless phone. Seems kinda stupid, but I keep breaking them by getting the wire caught on something.
Anybody have any recomennded brands/models?

oh, and here's the thing that makes them hard to find. I like headsets with two earphones, not just one. thins the herd of available options quite a bit.

You snagged the cord on your cordless headset? I'm confused. Anyway, check out Plantronics headsets.. they are the makers of the original Starset and still make some really nice stuff.

Motorola makes a stereo bluetooth headset that you may use for listening to music, or for talking on the phone. I think it's called the Rokr. It's about $100.

I have a cordless phone. The cordless phones have an audio 2mm jack that most corded phones do not.
The headset is wired to the cordless phone so you can put the phone on your belt and walk around hands free talking.

The cord is long and inevitably gets wrapped around something so when I get up, it yanks on the cord and either breaks the jack recepticle in the phone or the headset itself. This time the headset ate it.

Bluetooth won't help me this, isn't for cell phones. I actually have a bluetooth earpiece and I don't like it very much. That and I don't want to burn very expensive cell minutes if I can use my free landline.

I'd suggest Bluetooth to a softphone on your computer, but you don't have a VoIP setup at home...

I got this free MSI motherboard with an Athlon 64 processor on it.

It works fine but when you turn it on it instantly starts making this high/low octave alarm and doesn't stop.

Thankfully I found the problem. There was this piezo electric buzzer soldered on the board. Now that I've broken that, everything is functioning normally.

Stupid and simple idea.

How about you just thread the cord down the inside of your shirt next time.

Hrm... my land-line phone also uses bluetooth (it's an AT&T phone).

I know you're a fairly cheap bastage (wink), but...Plantronics makes some nice cordless headsets that can be used with corded phones...add a handset lifter to the mix, and you can be completely hands free except for dialing.  They're not necessarily cheap, but they're not outrageously priced, either.

because if I did, I'd have no phone service right now.

Not a bad idea, but the cord is really long, and there's lots more cord laying around. I guess I could tie it up. How mundane.
Technology should solve the problem it created...

but I see your point. :-)

Or, you could just cut the cord to length and resolder it. I can't imagine it has more than two or three wires.

I'd say get used to having it in just one ear instead of two. There are headset-cordless phones out there.

So, Apple is suing HTC for 20 patent infringments, and is seeking an injuction against the sale of their phones.

Frankly, if you look at the patents, I think they're crap. For a good many of them, one might find prior art, or they're so ridiculously vague as to be indefensible.
