I've seen robocopy run, and I've seen rsync run. rsync *smokes* robocopy in terms of performance.

Well, by default robocopy retries one million times on failure and waits 30 seconds between retry. That could have something to do with it.

Even so, out of the box robocopy is the only way on Windows to copy files without bothering to rewrite existing ones -- Very useful for large interrupted file transfers.

It probably doesn't send binary differences, as rsync does.

It probably has something to do with the fact that Windows tends to get cranky when you try to backup open files.

There's the problem of having the other server to backup to.

Absolutely. Dolby Pro Logic II is *the* standard way to encode surround sound into formats that only supply two channels.

I hear it every day when my kids turn on the Nintendo Wii. :)

well one of its shortcommings: no digital audio out...else it would be a perfect dvd player. (hacked and with mplayer)

It is actually quite surprising that Nintendo chose not to include an HDMI output on the Wii. There is an optional component video cable that displays in 480p, but the audio is still Pro Logic II over an analog stereo pair.

yea, got one of those...it doesn't offer full hd though...

Opera makes a lot more sense with it though. (but webcit looks ugly in it :((( )

plain sp/diff as audio out would be prefered though.

The Netflix on the WII seems to do better over the same WIFI link - as compared to my wifes laptop doing streaming.  Not sure what they did on the WII version (both non-HD quality streams), but the WII seems to buffer better and have less artifacts in the picture.

Does Mario make a cameo appearance in every movie? (In my house that would be a feature, not a bug.)_

No, but you can get a big hand with a pointer finger if you sit on the wii remote.

I'd like to see someone hax a Wii console to change the pointer cursors to middle fingers. That would be hilarious.

That's possible to do with current hacks, though it's been
known to be a good way to brick your wii so I'm not too crazy about
them, plus I like the standard interface.

I can't find a specific example of the middle finger giving, but I know
for a fact it's been done.

As for netflix on wii, it seems to run really well for me too, even on
the sub par connection I deal with. It's nice where youtube and
silverlight netflix netflix wii succeeds, though I'm almost positive
that's because the wii is using higher compression that the pc doesn't
use in order to keep "quality up". I'm assuming they make a somewhat
fair assumption that you'll notice graphical artifacts alot better on a
high resolution display then you will on a standard definition tv, even
if the source content itself is standard definition.

Funny you should mention.  I noticed just last night on dr. horrible's sing-along blog that when there were large areas of flat surfaces that were dimly lit, there was a bit of pixelization (large blocks actually).  Still like it thoug as I am impatient and it is nice to have lots of options without having to mess around with a DVR.

I really wish I could develop and install arbitrary applications on the Wii.
It would be really useful to be able to use it as a home automation terminal, video conferencing station, etc.

depending on its age, there are hacks around where you just need to insert an prewritten SD-card.

my wii does mplayer and some other nice stuff.

I would be nice just to get vlc or something like that - since it is just hooked up to a tv, it would be perfect for pumping arbitrary video to it.
