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...

whats mplayer missing appart from vlc? it knows howto stream meanwhile..
If you like VMWare, you'd love Sun Microsystems VirtualBox.
same thing, better support, better extensions, FREE, no need for liscensing, does everything VMWare does, FREE,... and works on most OS's and runs most OS's.. i havent found 1 OS it cant run... yet...
It's been nearly ten years now, but I mostly remember it being a headache every time a system moved from one location to another (whether the user was moving, or the box was re-purposed, or whatever). Different teams had jurisdiction over different subnets; moving from one to another was a non-trivial task. I can only guess there was some perceived security benefit.
I think that's a pretty ridiculous comparison. You can hire people and measure their performance by whatever you want to. Performance might be one of those. However the fact of the matter is that in a typical organization, NOBODY's performance is measured by software performance. Software performance is a team metric, not an individual metric, as you know perfectly well. While I'm on the subject: just rapid prototype on HSQL, and deploy to whatever you want. There is more than one way to skin a cat, and you don't have to wait for your DBA's at every step of the way (not that it's really such a hindrance even if you did.)
That having been said, I'm pretty sure Level 3 offers white label dialup service. Probably out of your price range though.
I hear it every day when my kids turn on the Nintendo Wii. :)
get a xyplex, hook up modems to it, connect it to a box via tcp...

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.
ah. these are rather unusual in germany / europe. most tracks have overhead contact lines. just some rather rural lanes or where there are tunnels with not enough space are operated with these diesel electric trains:
they replaced systems with heavy pure diesel engines with big torque converters (better hold your ears when they start off next to you...) in the late 90'ies.
btw, there are even diesel ones with direct shifting transmissions in the trains on the pictures above...
so... since current frequency, ac/dc, or the legal issues which color the needle of the tachometer or its background has to have in .de/.fr/.at its rather usual to call these hybrid if they may pass the border legally plus are still operational with the current...
so... it might happen that the rider has to switch the display over to .at mode when he passes the border, though the operator is still the same ;-)
I've been trying to convert my retail version of Windows XP Pro SP2 into an OEM version for my father-in-law's computer (long story). Normally, I would've burned an actual CD to try out, but sometime during the process of research, it occurred to me, "Self, why don't you try VMWare or some other virtual machine thing-a-ma-bob?"
If I had stuck to my plan of burning CDs, I'd have gone through at least three blanks by now, and it would've taken at least twice as long. Instead of burning to disc, I just tell Nero to create a bootable ISO file, then tell VMWare Player to create a virtual machine based off that ISO, and I'm good to go! It's already saved me a lot of time and frustration, and it's all pretty slick and runs very well on my host system running Windows XP Pro SP3.
I have seen the light my VM brothers and sisters and will be doing the good work spreading the news!
Can you tell I'm a just a little enthusiastic about this? :)
