Ah yes, the <marquee> tag ... designed when the Internet Exploder team decided they had to one-up Netscape and build something even *more* obnoxious than the <blink> tag.

Subject: outsourced modem pipes?

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

Anyone know of a dialup modem service that just opens a tcpip socket to an IP address when it connects?

Wait... and convert the modem traffic to TCP/IP as a result?

Isn't that the old ppp or somesuch?  You could create something that does this with off-the-shelf stuff.

Or, you could just buy into AOL, if they're still around.

You could probably *buy AOL* for less than the cost of a bank of modems.

That having been said, I'm pretty sure Level 3 offers white label dialup service. Probably out of your price range though.

I maintain a dialup account through Budget Dialup.... $6 for a 10-hour
block of internets at a blazing fast 56k, expires in a year. Got it
hooked up on my Palm, since I don't feel like paying verizon for a data
plan or any more than the $15/mo I pay for cellular service.

interesting. I thought you could only tether the palm to a PC, you can use dialup and access the web via the dialup connection?

Yep.

Added a network using the "virtual modem" connection, username,
password, phone number... makes the call out and connects as a dialup
service... Slow but functional.

Other connections are bluetooth to macbook and cable/cradle.

I was mildly pleased and surprised when I found this.

I went over to Wikipedia to pull up their article on POP3 to figure out what the default TCP port POP3 servers listen to is. While browsing the page, I thought to myself, "I wonder if there's any mention of POP4."

Lo and behold, there's a paragraph in the History section about POP4 and a link to the POP4 website under the "External links" section.

Yet another UCG'er on Wikipedia!

Go Ford!

No shit. Hunh.
Well "pop4 proposal website" is at least one word more than "mostly harmless."

Hitler has a wiki page? Why doesn't it turn up as the first hit on pretty much *any* Google search?

Subject: errors on Citadel gentoo e-builds

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

I attempted to install and setup Citadel on Gentoo (Sabayon Linux 5.4 serverbase) , but encountered errors  in install process.

The download with "wget" and "tar" commands worked ok, even the "echo"commands.

However on both "emerge" commands - for "Citadel" and "Citadel Webcit" the system indicated "no ebuilds".

 

Can anyone help?

Dunno whether this is useful for anyone, but it seems that Google has a text-to-speech API that anyone can use.

You go http://translate.google.com/translate_tts?q=text (where 'text' is the phrase you want it to say) and you get back an MP3. It works with any string up to 100 characters.
