And I bet that within 5 mouse clicks you could get to Hitler's wiki
page from there. :)

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

The conundrum of data center operations:

Reliability requires redundancy.
Redundancy introduces complexity.

so, learned a little from that:

didn't even hear about conkeror or neo.

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.

Oneline servies worry me, I like that kind of stuff to be local, if the computer needs to talk to you it's probably better that it not have to wait for network or even rely on it, but that's me.
Playing with my g1 and reading some articles about it they're getting big into tts and voice recognition, the idea being you can just interact with your device.
The only reason it even half works well is because the sound recorder program is real snappy about getting the data to google. Google can of course churn on it within a second or two and only has to send back a few bytes of text.
Certainly it takes a lot of horsepower, but still would rather do it on my PC which has plenty of horses itself.

Right. It doesn't take a lot of computing power to do text-to-speech, which is why the phone does that on its own. Speech-to-text, however, is a big task, and one whose usability can be improved by having a large and growing corpus of data to work with, so they send that out to the cloud.

Having used my G1 in the car for navigation, I have to say that it's really nice to be able to talk to it instead of having to stop the car and type in a destination.

I never saw a g1 with android 1.5. Also I have a magic not a dream, so I have the less snappy of the two, but I find the response a bit too laggy to not be annoying.
Was it snappier with 1.5?
Makes me wanna go get the latest or at least a faster model, but I'd feel bad taking a brand new machine and hacking it up right away. And that would blow out my $50 budget. :-) So I'll keep playing with my slightly laggy magic.
I'm awaiting a 2gig sd card from my homeys in china and I'll try the swapper on it and see if it makes it worse or better.
I found the JIT made overall response worse, took me a while to realize I was better off without it.
If I could cache all that compiled stuff I'd be better off, but there's no memory on this thing, so it's worse than not having it.

My G1 had Android 1.6 when I got it, so I can't say how 1.5 performed. It was definitely snappier under 1.6 than it was under 2.2. It's a little sluggish under 2.2 but not so much that it's a problem.

so... austria has an engine making this sound while starting off:

seems as if its due to the power regulators.

That's cool. Is this a typical hybrid locomotive?

hybrid? between what?

its purely electric.

it probably might be able to cope with the different AC-frequencies, like 15 2/3 Hz in .de and probably 50 Hz in other european countries like .fr if you like to call that hybrid...

since its using wave cutting to control the amount of energy the engines get; thats what makes them howl that melody...

Does anyone here know anything about infrared motion detectors?  As in, do they wear out?  I just got back from another false alarm.  I can't find anything that would have set them off yet again.

most probably the lenses can become pale / dirty?

maybe you've got a cat hanging about? ;-)

No cats around here..I'd start sneezing if there were.  As for the dirty lens...that should make the sensor less sensitive.  I am wondering about transient voltage spikes or breakdown of the semi-conductors in the sensor.

 

Trust me, there is nothing more fun than getting up in the middle of the night to investigate an alarm at a remote location.

The cable company 'fixes' their routers overnight so if you have a voip phone that you're running your alarm service over, it will appear to be cut every once in a while.
this happens all the time over here, though I'm sure that's not what you're talking about.

Like a hybrid automobile. The typical design for a "diesel" locomotive is actually a diesel generator plus a bunch of electric motors, one on each wheel.
