It probably has something to do with the fact that Windows tends to get cranky when you try to backup open files.

How about you just thread the cord down the inside of your shirt next


Not a bad idea, but the cord is really long, and there's lots more cord laying around. I guess I could tie it up. How mundane.
Technology should solve the problem it created...

but I see your point. :-)

I dunno.. in my opinion, the iPad doesn't make the greatest skateboard

in the world. Seems a little too small for the job.

Somehow I don't think that is a Steve Jobs approved use of an iPad. Conformance officers will be deployed to the scene.

PS: I used to have a Toshiba Tecra 8100, it was the first one I got
when I moved to NYC and it was awesome. I would definitely consider
another Toshiba.

Their screens are just awesome. If I ever buy an LCD television, I'll probably go with Toshi for that as well. They've got some nice ones.

(For now, though, the 32" CRT will continue to do just fine.)

oh, so they get the source to the latest version of the OS then fix all the things that won't run on the older phone? I guess that isn't so bad.

ford, your local git copy contains _ALL_ information of the repository.

you can do blame or log without connecting to the server, your local working copy contains all the data.

plus, a SVN workingcopy is _BIGGER_ than a Git workingcopy.


On the branching/forking thing...

GIT doesn't have linear revisions. you can commit to your local copy and start some weird vodoo not everybody might like plus stay synced with the main development tree.

You can work on something until its ready to be committed upstream. Or you could add features, which upstream doesn't like without having to worry that new features / bugfixes upstream does won't fix in easily. Git also offers upstream a very compfortable way to accept and integrate patches from "forkers"; Think of the problems the linux kernel has; git takes care of them and aids the maintainers without being in the way.

git to svn is like what one might think of 3d to 2d.

as long as you're in 2d you might find everything easy to use and live with, once you come to know 3d you don't want to miss it anymore...

Hmm, I dunno. When I first started programming for a living I did a ton of coding with btrieve.. both the earlier version with no transactions and the later one with transactions... and it worked quite well for some pretty database-heavy applications. We thought it was great at the time and I often still kinda miss it. Sure you can do some great things with SQL that would take quite a lot of effort to code with a record manager. But MOST of the stuff is not actually that hard to do with a record manager. Sometimes I wonder if, by the time you are done learning the sql database system, managing it, maintaining it, paying for it, dealing with its problems, trying to understand why it doesn't always do what you expect it to do, optimizing your shit that used to work the way it was... Etc. Whether it is necessarily the best solution for a lot of things. The place I am working now, they are actually moving a lot of shit to a homegrown record manager and they do a lot of flat file stuff too.. because they aren't getting the performance they need from Oracle on the multi-million record stuff they do, and to expand Oracle to handle it.. multiple multi-cpu licence, replication, disk arrays and all that shit, plus more DBA's.. it is crazy expensive and would probably STILL be slower.

PS: About the PDU (power distribution unit).. it is not a UPS, it is just a heavy duty rack mount power strip with 12 outlets on it. So it's a bit heavy for a power strip but nowhere near as heavy as the actual UPS. Anyway, it turns out that they were getting rid of 5 more of them and I took them all.. and these all have the brackets. So I am good to go :)

rudolf: If you're using Windows, you can also generate accented letters by holding down the Alt key and typing in that character's code. For example, an e with a grave accent, can be generated by typing in Alt+0233.

The Windows Character Map utility in Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools will show you the codes. Just click on a letter in the map.

Where the customer loses.

Of course, I am likely to have a patent in my name (for all the good it'll do me) soon. It might be a resume-builder, and it might be 'good for business', but some of these patents are lousy for consumers.

I know they're supposed to protect the people who come up with original stuff, to give them a chance to recoup money for the time and effort in creating something nice that they've brought into the world. That's really nice and all that.

But something has happened in the world, to make patents somewhat outmoded for certain kinds of things. We probably need some form of patent reform to keep consumers from getting screwed.

My Toshiba M4 had an issue with the system board that occurred within a few months of getting it, but Toshiba happily replaced it and I haven't had any trouble with it since. I've had it for at least four years now.

I used the eee 701 before and own now a ACER aspire one pro with 250GB HD, 2 GB RAM, bluetooth and UMTS modem. The 701 was nice to have but due to the small display and keyboard you couldn't really use it. The aspire one is great. It's fine for browsing, writing and even drawing. But I haven't tested any CPU intensive workloads, like VM or gaming. By now the aspire has replaced my old 1.5 GHz Centrino notebook (15").

These days I would probably choose a  netbook with AMD C-XX APU (e.g. aspire one 522): quite powerful GPU and up to 10 hours battery life.
