so as a goof I hooked up ekiga to an ipkall number and in about 3 minutes is was working.
I played with asterisk for a few minutes when I realized how not trivial it is to set up and then thought about what I needed it for and realized it wasn't worth it.
I'll keep the ekiga thing around (hey it's free and easy) but what I really want is cheap phone and my 948 number so I'm going to see if the magic jack thing pans out.

Funny you should mention.  I noticed just last night on dr. horrible's sing-along blog that when there were large areas of flat surfaces that were dimly lit, there was a bit of pixelization (large blocks actually).  Still like it thoug as I am impatient and it is nice to have lots of options without having to mess around with a DVR.

My thinkpad X31 is pretty rockin. It's really small and light and the battery lasts hours and hours and hours. It has no cd/dvd drive so you need some external drive to install the OS, but it runs xp swimmingly. It's my work-from-home-away-from-home machine. The screen is like 1024x768 and it's got a squished keyboard, but I've done devlopment on it, andit's quite useable.
I imagine you can pick up a used one pretty cheap nowadays.

do hex editors read from block devices directly, as if I wanted to edit the MBR myself.
or are you saying mount the device as a file and do it that way...

Dunno whether this is useful for anyone, but it seems that Google has a text-to-speech API that anyone can use.

You go (where 'text' is the phrase you want it to say) and you get back an MP3. It works with any string up to 100 characters.

I am just so used to the touchpoint now that I have no desire for a regular mouse. I do have a mac mini in the house with a regular mouse and I don't mind using the mouse at all.. but on a laptop the touchpoint feels so much better.

oh, and here's the thing that makes them hard to find. I like headsets with two earphones, not just one. thins the herd of available options quite a bit.

down-translating everything to ASCII and wrapping several layers of escaping around it seems to be a clear advance then!

there rather should be something like a corba interface to it instead, so you can query it using the commandline but can also work fast with it.

without all that wrap in/ out back and forth!

The screen is b0rken on my beloved Toshiba 17" laptop. :(

The good news: I have a three year warranty on it, which is actually still in effect for another couple of weeks!

The bad news: I bought the laptop at CompUSA.

A little Googling reveals that the warranty is still going to be honored, but I'm expecting this is going to be one hell of a bumpy ride getting my laptop fixed.

Anybody know of any other cheap options? The thing is I almost never use the phone but when I do it can be for a long time, so I really want an all I can eat plan for really really cheap. :-)

it's a pretty good thing. a couple of quirks here and there, but in general it rivals the quality of the hanset vendor's own build, and you didn't have to buy this year's phone to get this year's operating system.

android is very good at the write once run anywhere thing, though. its apps really do run on a wide array of very different handsets.

I'd love to see a laptop with a normal (or multitouch, doesn't matter) folding screen, and instead of a keyboard and touchpad on the main body, a multitouch screen for the keyboard and touchpad, or just whatever else you could possibly want. I know
the technology exists to do this, I just haven't seen anyone actually do it yet.

Exactly. I once used a hex editor to reconstruct, partition by partition, a Sun disklabel that had been maliciously wiped out by an unauthorized user.
All it takes is a bootable CD with a hex editor loaded, and a knowledge of the device you're trying to reconstruct.

This is of course assuming that the device is not physically malfunctioning.

no problems apart from that its an interpreted language where
everybody wants to talk away the fact that this will be slower than
native code.

just because of you store a pre-parsed copy of the interpreted code,
thats no compiler. No body would call the zend-cache a JIT

zero clue, too.

you also missed the fact that nobody cares. programmers are more expensive than hardware.

depends on the number of users you're trying to address. at some scale it does matter if you need the double number of computing power.

In that case/scale i'm talking about, it probably is, since the nginx thing will work without db interaction.
