dothebart: if you find there are problems with Java, I'm sure Oracle would welcome some patches from you :)

You know, like all of that HP-RISC assembler that you tend to find in stored procs. (?)

Berkeley DB Java Edition?

Not that one... last I checked, wasn't it JNI based? And besides just being a record manager with transaction support.

Yes, there are several. I'm using HyperSQL DB aka HSQL mostly for development/test purposes (still deploying to Oracle.) There are many others. Cloudbase/Derby being among the most prominent. I believe Derby was renamed and folded into JDK 6.0. (Continuing the tradition of bloat, I'm proud to say.)

Quick, question....

Are the solid state drives drop-in replacements for a standard hard drive?  (on my laptop).  That would probably rejuvenate and extend the life of my machine quite a bit.

A little trick I use on strange filters is to stab a hole with a phillips screw driver all the way thru the filter at the top and just twist it off.

Might as well be creative and implement a new replacement for the <blink> tag using JavaScript.

I haven't seen the actual list of patents they are trying to defend. It is probably stupid. But I still don't blame Apple for this, it is just the way the game is played these days, Apple was not the first and they won't be the last. If Apple had not patented that technology, then someone else would have patented it and sued Apple, thus hurting the market for the iPhone etc.
Let's say Apple didn't patent the key technologies in the iPhone.. someone else could have then patented them, and without doing any of the work to develop a product, could have then prevented Apple from introducing their product or shaken them down for a lot of money and or generated tons of bad publicity surrounding the release of the product. Plenty of Apples competitors would have enjoyed doing that. Apple has no choice but to secure as many patents as possible, nor do any other technology companies...

I mean the temperature iself is meaningless. Who cares if it runs at 90celcius or 200 celcius, like anybody cares what their car engine temp is, it only matters that it not overheat.

I bought a 1TB external disc for backup, but Steve Ballmer probably made me do that.

Right. It doesn't take a lot of computing power to do text-to-speech, which is why the phone does that on its own. Speech-to-text, however, is a big task, and one whose usability can be improved by having a large and growing corpus of data to work with, so they send that out to the cloud.

Having used my G1 in the car for navigation, I have to say that it's really nice to be able to talk to it instead of having to stop the car and type in a destination.

Thanks ig. That's why I want the netbook, so I have something to take with me different places when I am not necessarily planning on doing a lot of work.
I don't want to lug around my main computer and put it at risk anymore. And I will use the netbook for my audio jobs (remote control of the DSP) and for DJing. But I still want a laptop for my main computer, and even though I will be doing much less work away from home or office, I will still want to take the regular laptop with me places (even if just a coffee shop for change of pace) so I don't want something gargantuan. I think a 15 is the top size I would get.

So now we have a kindle, and I have to say the machine appears to be a piece of shit in a nice box, but it's good for what it was designed to do. IT's only a matter of time before they start asking it to do things it was not designed to do, then it will suck like everything else.
But... I like the screen.

I'm trying to figure out why it's got to flash black on every page refresh.
I know it's not lcd, it's some kind of electricly charged ink.
but it seems to me, with a little extra cpu use, you could figure out which pixels to toggle and just flip those rather than having to flash the whole page black.
For something that's supposed to be easy to read, the page flash is really annoying.

That's true too.  And easier to configure than the way I suggested.  :)

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.

Wait... and convert the modem traffic to TCP/IP as a result?

Isn't that the old ppp or somesuch?  You could create something that does this with off-the-shelf stuff.

Or, you could just buy into AOL, if they're still around.

Seems pretty obvious, but it's all true. Once you learn those commands you can quickly key them in forever.
