> And at last why not using Subversion?!

Subversion is not a distributed version control system. It makes it very difficult for 3rd parties to take the Android platform and build products on top of it. With Subversion, or any other non-distributed version control system, non-committers are 2nd class citizens who don't have the same level of functionality as the blessed committers/maintainers of the project.

We very much want to make Android available for everyone to use, extend, and build on top of. Open source allows rapid innovation to occur, and to open up markets that didn't exist before. Distributed version control tools are the next great thing for open source, as it ensures these innovators are really free to access the code, modify it, and redistribute those modifications.

I think this is one of the best explanations of the advantages of git i've heard so far.

yes, all thats what you're searching.

the big problem is the 'noob workaround language' you need to backtrace.

some routers have an 'expert mode' that unveils such n00b unfriendly features.

I think my interest goes as far as seeing if I can still plug my voicemodem into the magic jack so I can still use my linux box as an answering machine and fwd my voice mails to my email.

Well that was easy. There's a phone number all over teh internets that is to be used for warranty claims. I called it and gave them the info on my receipt and they're going to send me a box in which to ship the machine back to a repair depot. The repair itself will have an additional 90 day warranty.

I bet people will take the price increase for tape as an excuse to upgrade.
Being in the digital video storage marketplace would probably be a good place to be right now.

Fr Jan 28 2011 12:25:36 EST von IGnatius T Foobar @ Uncensored Betreff: Re:
Our commuter railroads have either overhead power lines or a third rail. We use diesel for long distance rail, especially freight rail. Remember, we have much longer distances.

yea I know; since distances are shorter over here, there is less space so there isn't much dedicated freigt-rail in europe.

I guess the new highspeeed lanes are the first ones to make this distinction, next to the commuter rail systems in berlin that also have the 3rd rail power system..

unless you need to have something failsafe like the castor transport there is no need to have diesel freight lines...

most lines that have frequent traffic have overhead lines, so most freight railtraffic is also done with electric engines.

Motorola makes a stereo bluetooth headset that you may use for listening to music, or for talking on the phone. I think it's called the Rokr. It's about $100.

Remember how long it took to stabilize Citadel on top of Berkeley DB?

You can't say the API made development easier for us initially. SQL

My primary goal was (and still is) to have a database back end that could be linked in as a library instead of requiring DBA-like activities everywhere the software is installed.

Would I do it with Berkeley DB today? Probably not. Today we have things like SQLite available that would have given us a schema layer *and* embeddability.
It's not worth switching over at this point because we already did all of the heavy lifting, but if we were starting the project today, things would definitely be different.

I got into some superheated arguments with Mr.T about this. He wanted a totally decoupled store using an external RDBMS. He said it wasn't an issue.
I argued that requiring all of those extra steps for installation would limit the take-up of the platform. It's a decade or so later now and I still think we did the right thing.

I've still got an old-skool Ethernet-to-parallel (three parallel ports, actually) JetDirect. Works fine, but I'll probably never be able to upgrade it to support IPv6.

So let's say I'm sick of my landline, and I want a skype phone.
Does there exist any hardware that allows you to hook a real phone up

to the PC to use as a skype phone?

Mixed media not getting the job done for you anymore? I think the real trick for you is going to be getting your phone number ported out from under the FiOS without cancelling your service. And didn't you agree to a two year contract a few months ago?

Anyway, as Pulse mentioned there are several brands of Skype-to-POTS adapters available. Most of them seem to be USB attached, though, so it's likely you'll need a dedicated computer (or a VM with a USB connection passed through to it) for this purpose.

Does it have to be Skype? If you're just looking for any phone service, most other VoIP services will give you an Ethernet-attached adapter that you can plug directly into your local network.
Vonage is the best known one, but if you'd rather go with someone trustworthy and local, our friends at Ace Innovative offer an *excellent* SIP service.
I used it for years before I got FiOS.

And if you're looking to go super cheap, you should also check out Magic Jack.

In my experience, the problem is not databases, but rather DBA's. I don't know why, but they tend to be extremely rigid thinkers. Everything has to be done "by the book" even if empirical evidence shows that some other way yields better performance, shorter development time, or whatever.

(And then they'll do something stupid like put a "select * from *" on every screen.)

I love how I only got the first 80 characters of that URL but it contained everything needed to get me to the page.

I've often thought about how these RFID chips are unsafe. I'm carrying in my wallet 4 individual RFID enabled cards that someone could probably very easily steal just by brushing up against me. When I pay for stuff using the contactless payment system thing, it doesn't ask you to sign it, enter your PIN, or anything at all. It's just ....... Approved!

I don't care what the number itself is, but I think it's useful to note it's normal operating temperature number, and the high range of numbers so I can see when it's getting too high.
