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.

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.

You can use emacs for Java too, but that doesn't make it optimal.

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...

Now I'm watching a parade of dots as VMware ESXi loads from a virtual CD mapped from a remote machine onto an HP blade server. I've seen programs load faster than this from cassette tape.

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. :)

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:

http://www.google.com/images?q=talent+db&hl=de&client=iceweasel-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:unofficial&prmd=ivns&source=lnms&tbs=isch:1&ei=zapATaz0B4aKlweQ5OWoAw&sa=X&oi=mode_link&ct=mode&cd=2&ved=0CA4Q_AUoAQ&biw=1020&bih=471

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? :)
