Yeah, if you're really observant, you can see where it updates sections of the screen at a time, and how there's a little ghosting left behind when they do that.

I like my Kindle. It does exactly what it's designed to do pretty well.
I wouldn't push it beyond that, though.

PC3-17600 DDR3-SDRAM (triple channel 192-bit) memory clocking in at

Although it's not triple chan, you can get 4 GB of PC3 17600 at Newegg for $190 shipped.

8 GB in Quad Channel (which I would think would be faster than triple channel) is $400 + shipping.

and... NT4 definitely was superior to OS/2. I've worked with it, and
coded for it. It definitely was no fun.

I realize you're just baiting me, but I haven't had this flamewar in a long time, let's see how rusty my os/2 has gotten.
Explain to me any meaningful way in which ny4 was superior to os/2.
os/2 separated the gui layer from the kernel layer. some would say this makes nt superior because it's faster, but from a 'right way to do things' os/2 did it the better way.
you'll also notice no gui in the linux kernel.

That was just a warm up. bring it on boy.

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.

Well...mine is old enough that it has a pata interface.  The ssd are either too small or outrageously expensive. Sooo....I'm kinda outta luck.  My job situation is such that it would be unwise to spend any money on new equipment at this time.  The laptop is just a luxury anyways.

Instead of having to visit every box, you just manage everything in one place.  Seems okay to me.

I've preferred it, myself.

Damn... we should start giving our product away, so I don't need to be concerned that it works anymore.

You could give the product to the customers, but then charge them for the fixes. Or tie it to a particular brand of hardware, and buy shares in the brand.

I see it from a different point of view.. if I am going to pay a kazillion dollars for a database and people to run it, it damn well better have referential integrity. That is one of the MAJOR selling points of these systems isn't it???

This, of course, is most of the impetus behind the free software movement: get rid of all those pesky customers ;)

For all the ways I theoretically like VMs, I can't convince myself to
run it on anything more then shared servers. I've found I have nearly
no reason whatsoever to run an alternative OS other then video games,
and VMWare does worse on games for me then WINE does.

The problem is that the database has become the tail wagging the dog.

cellofellow: My old laptop, an IBM ThinkPad 360PE, would sometimes not resume after suspend, either. I had to reset the system using the reset button on the bottom of the laptop. You might want to check to see if your system has a reset switch and try that.

Has anybody here dealt with LightintheBox?  I'd be a little sqeemish about dealing with a foreign exporter.  You're right though...I am tempted.

Transparent aluminum... duh!


Not just an obscure geek reference to a Star Trek movie.

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...

Depends on how old your laptop is. Mine's too old for anybody to have made a flash drive for whatever goofy interface it has, but apparently newer laptops are whatever standard and you can drop 2.5 inch drives in.
