I maintain a dialup account through Budget Dialup.... $6 for a 10-hour
block of internets at a blazing fast 56k, expires in a year. Got it
hooked up on my Palm, since I don't feel like paying verizon for a data
plan or any more than the $15/mo I pay for cellular service.

Most VoIP providers will let you port your landline number to them. Ace definitely will; I've done that with them before. You'll have to ask them if they have a way to port your number out from under a FiOS service without cancelling the service. I know they had a way to do that with DSL.

If you're moving, it might be easier to wait until then. Port your number to a new service, cancelling FiOS in the process, and then at your new location you can order service (either FiOS or Cable or whatever) and then bring your ATA along with you and plug it in -- poof, your old number is now at your new home.

Or move to my neighborhood and I'll share my bandwidth with you :)

in that case the hardware total needed at least equals my yearly income. (if not more)

And yes, another 30% do matter.

Yea, thats why everybody uses fancy frameworks to abstract SQL
(regardless which language he uses)

*sigh* You missed something critical in the midst of your rant: the fact that people are building frameworks around it doesn't mean that it's too high level. It means it's ***not high level enough***

Does Mario make a cameo appearance in every movie? (In my house that would be a feature, not a bug.)_

afaik they just have usual pata/sata interfaces. most probably sata interaces will be more common these days.

maybe a CF adaptor will suit your needs too?

But that's not what I wanted to talk about.
I recently reached a milestone in my life. Since I was about 23 or so I've never run less than 2 machines, one for my use and one fo the websites I run and mail and whatever else. Well finally I consolidated, and I have everything on one big ass machine.
There are many downsides, but this is the way it's going to be for a while, and I think my most pressing problem is that I have no online machine to back this machine up to.
I used to rsync back and forth between the two. Now there's nowhere to rsync to.
This machine has raid0 via linux so it's not completely at risk, but I'd still like somewhere else to go.
so I was thinking the memorystick angle. I see you can buy a 64gig stick on ebay for about $20-$30. Is this reasonable or is this crap from china that will write once read never?

Or does anybody have a better idea? I've got about 36gig to back up at the moment.
Sad my whole online life fits in 36gig.

Maybe nt 4 was split and win2k they merged them, I remmber there being a big hubub about putting the gui in the kernel process space or something like that.

That's a very good idea :) But, it does come down to more than that. The only models I can find with the higher screen resolution have fairly low battery life. Since I want this machine to be a take anywhere, use any time kind of machine for me, battery life matters to me. The Sony seems to be one of the better options since it has the resolution and the rated battery life is, while not the 14 hours (max) of the Asus, it is a pretty decent 6-7 hours.
The HP seems to be ruled out due to the battery life.. a dead netbook is a useless netbook, regardless of resolution. I tried to research the Lenovo, but I cannot find the netbook model with trackpoint. Only regular laptop models that are much more expensive. But I am fairly sure that the one I saw in J&R was a netbook... Have to research it a bit more.

which performs "realy well" *couch* as you can see if you ran firefox
for a while and its db backend fills up.

Specious. Nobody knows where Firefox is leaking its memory, least of all the firefox developers ;)

At the first corporate desktop support job I had, their entire network was done on an assigned basis; the desktops were configured for DHCP, but you always got the same address because the DHCP servers had a manual entry for every box on the network.  I still wonder if the perceived benefits outweighed the administrative headache.

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...

I'd suggest Bluetooth to a softphone on your computer, but you don't have a VoIP setup at home...
