depending on its age, there are hacks around where you just need to insert an prewritten SD-card.

my wii does mplayer and some other nice stuff.

same thing, better support, better extensions, FREE, no need for
liscensing, does everything VMWare does, FREE,... and works on most
OS's and runs most OS's.. i havent found 1 OS it cant run... yet...

Live migration? Support for parallel access filesystems (VMFS running on a SAN for example)? Automatic failover from one host system to another? Bare metal hypervisor? Total footprint of 32 MB or smaller?

I'm a dyed-in-the-wool open source fanatic, but you can have my VMware when you pry it from my cold dead fingers.

I know Vonage can port a land-line number as well. My parents have been using Vonage for at least two years now and they've been happy. They had a local land-line beforehand and their number didn't change.

Frankly, I didn't even know they'd switched to Vonage until they told me about four or five months after the fact.

Now that I think about it a little more, there's really no reason why

you couldn't build a "cheap, low-power home server" using a netbook

Or with an off the shelf wifi router (one with the storage port option) that's been reflashed with Linux.

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.

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

maybe jetsql would have been the next best alternative ;-P

I seem to recall reading somewhere that google doesn't have a big room full of batteries to power their data center until the generators come online after a power loss, each machine is built with its own battery inside. Turned out to be more economical.
People might soon find that running some of their own equipment and having on site staff and not relying on vendors for EVERYTHING might be a boon to their business.
I like those comments from the websites taking the hit "we're working as hard as we can to get the site back up."
You ARE? What, are you calling and harassing amazon support MORE than everybody else? Is that how you're helping?

Does the room get any outside light? if so the IR filter on the detector might be fading making it trigger on other wavelengths.

Yes, lots of light in the morning.  More likely, it's the overhead radiant heater.  The room is an entryway at the store where I work.  I think the radiant heater is creating a hot spot on the metal in the room.  When it's cold enough, it interpets the hot spot as motion....I think.  Nobody agrees with me, but they have no better answer.

I never saw a g1 with android 1.5. Also I have a magic not a dream, so I have the less snappy of the two, but I find the response a bit too laggy to not be annoying.
Was it snappier with 1.5?
Makes me wanna go get the latest or at least a faster model, but I'd feel bad taking a brand new machine and hacking it up right away. And that would blow out my $50 budget. :-) So I'll keep playing with my slightly laggy magic.
I'm awaiting a 2gig sd card from my homeys in china and I'll try the swapper on it and see if it makes it worse or better.
I found the JIT made overall response worse, took me a while to realize I was better off without it.
If I could cache all that compiled stuff I'd be better off, but there's no memory on this thing, so it's worse than not having it.

No, it's not the safety that's an issue. It's the programmer productivity issue. You take away a huge amount of flexibility when you take away SQL. Write code to manually maintain the non-primary-key indexes? No thanks. Totally rewrite code every time a data access path needs to be optimized for some query? No thanks. Take away the ability for a large population of technical end users to be able to write ad-hoc queries? No thanks. Entirely remove the industry standard representation of the relational calculus? No thanks. Hire some irresponsible programmer who always thinks that performance is king, neglects maintainability, neglects testability and quality, insists on writing everything himself when there are pre-made solutions available, just for the learning exercise, and does everything in the lowest-level tool available? Definitely no thanks. Real work is not about small scale toy/academic projects. But if you want to go shoot yourself in the foot with assembly language, be my guest. Just do it somewhere else.

your data quality will suffer in some ways, but you won't notice too

often. the only practical problem is that your data architect will hate

you. solve this by not hiring a data architect in the first place ;)

heh, use emacs for everything because emacs is better than eclipse.

yeah, he's just another stupid piece of shit posting on a website, but I've seen so many of these articles, and they're all wrong.
His 10 tips are good for him. Why is he so small as to assume that what is good for him must be good for everybody.
Hell, forget that we're all individually built humans, and lets just take the more obvious: the job tasks are different.
I write java programs. emacs is not superior to eclipse when writing java programs. Period, it just isn't.
Yet this is what he's pitching because he knows better.

Well at least to me it's obvious that he doesn't know better, he's not mature, or more importantly, not wise, does not see the error of his ways and as a result I can't imagine why anybody would listen to him.

Of course my dark side says he knows exactly what he's doing and the more people you get to follow that kind of bullshit the less people you have to compete with in the job market.

Well, you used to be able to use Free World Dialup as a proxy, but they don't have free accounts anymore.

As for the business model, it definitely depends on being able to work with razor-thin margins. They offer absolutely no support of any kind, and they probably already had all of the equipment already in place from whatever lines of business they were already conducting.

Haha, I usually call it a clit mouse. Anyway, yea ig it seems the Thinkpad era is over. I've had a 390X, T30, X60 and T42.. I'm using the T42 now, the X60 broke in a dozen ways, it was not as rugged as the others. So the 40 series is the end of the line for me and actually it is fast enough for most of what I do but the day of reckoning approaches. My friend got a Dell business model which has the trackpoint and it is a really nice machine but he says the trackpoint isn't quite as good as the IBM one. But I would consider Dell.
I haven't looked at Toshiba in a while. According to a study I recently read about, Asus is the most reliable laptop (least repairs over 3 years) followed by Toshiba. Asus laptops look good, I might go there. Sony Apple and Dell come next in the ranking. I don't want to pay for a Sony though.
I am also interested in Fujitsu which isn't in the study.

So yea, I do have the option of a trackpoint in there, but I will have to see. But for a netbook, its moot, none of them have it. And I want a netbook...

... and a number of their own (non-summer-of-code) projects as well. Google Collections. Etc.

What Java really need is a better memory model: the thing that slows java down is memory allocation, NOT the JVM these days. C# gets it right, sadly.

My G1 had Android 1.6 when I got it, so I can't say how 1.5 performed. It was definitely snappier under 1.6 than it was under 2.2. It's a little sluggish under 2.2 but not so much that it's a problem.

There's another problem with Japan.

Japan is the only place that makes tape media used by broadcasters, from what I understand.  That stuff just got very, very expensive.

Ekiga will definitely get the job done if you run it at the network edge and it can accept incoming SIP sessions.

Asterisk ... it's amazing and super powerful and super flexible but, as you've discovered there is a bit of a learning curve. For something as broad as a PBX it unfortunately has to be that way. There's an "easy" version called Trixbox but it ships as an appliance. You could run that in a VM but then you'd have to figure out how to route all of the SIP portsw from your network edge to Trixbox, which could be tough.

I've been running Asterisk on my home network for years now. It's great having my Ethernet-attached phones and the ability to do all sorts of custom features. I've got TWO numbers from IPKall. One is a number that, when called, behaves exactly like my POTS line; I use it when I call home from my cell phone, so if someone is on the phone it still rings in instead of producing a busy signal. The other is a number that goes straight to voice mail, every time. I have my cell phone configured to forward on busy or no answer to that number, effectively making my *home* voice mail system the one that is attached to my cell phone. I just didn't want another voice mail box to have to check.
