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.)

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.

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. :)

hybrid? between what?

its purely electric.

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 ;-)

Well that's exactly it - suppose ... perhaps emacs *is* the perfect environment for writing LISP code. Does the text editor suit the developer, or the language being used? Eclipse for Java, emacs for LISP, and vi for C? ;)

I have seen the god-dammed frakkin' light of VMWare, and I'm butt-naked basking in it!!!

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?"

Holy crap!

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? :)

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

Or, you could just cut the cord to length and resolder it. I can't imagine it has more than two or three wires.

depends on the number of users you're trying to address. at some
scale it does matter if you need the double number of computing

To this end I like to point out that google isn't written in java.

no problems apart from that its an interpreted language where
everybody wants to talk away the fact that this will be slower than
native code.

just because of you store a pre-parsed copy of the interpreted code,
thats no compiler. No body would call the zend-cache a JIT

zero clue, too.

you also missed the fact that nobody cares. programmers are more expensive than hardware.

So to end the saga (for now). Woot had a refurb 12 inch Asus netbook for $240 with $5 shipping. So I went for it. The specs are somewhat weak compared to what I was looking at, but it has the screen resolution. I had tried one of the most important programs I am going to be running on there, which is the remote control for the DSP in my sound system.. I brought the resolution on my laptop down to 600 high.. and it was really a too tight fit and would not work out, important controls off the screen. And I am trying to watch my money right now because I am making some major investments in my sound system.. investments that are going to earn themselves mostly back in the next month, but nevertheless it is a lot of money. So I decided that I would prefer to get more of a bargain now, and later on splash for one of the really nice high resolution 10 inch models and sell this one or give it to my girlfriend.

"Finally, I put heatshrink over the LED connections..."

That's funny because it ends up being the way that kind of build usually goes. Finish the soldering, then realize that you forgot to put the heat shrink tubing on ahead of time, then cut or desolder your connections, put the heat shrink tubing on, and solder it again. :)

"Is there a name for using dhcp to serve static ip addresses?"

On my router, you go to the DHCP tab and enter what they label a 'static entry'.  It maps a MAC address to an IP address and a name (not sure how the name is used, honestly).

I'm using a Linksys RV082 router, which is kinda pricey, but works reasonably well.

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!

Something like that ... they *are* upwardly compatible; you can, for example, put an x1 card in an x2, x4, x8, x16, or x32 slot. The only difference is the number of I/O channels (or "lanes" as they call them) supported by the slot. Simple adapters like serial and ethernet ports will typically be x1 cards, and high bit rate stuff like video cards will usually be x16.
