  1. is wishing he had spent more time posting on this site in the past.

  2. is hating how certifcations have a "must be done this way" attitude.

  3. ohai And yes, the more people you can bring kicking and screaming back, the better.
  4. The whole app store concept might work for the iPhone, but doesn't anybody else find the level of control that Apple has with this device downright scary? You are buying a device that is supposed to be a tablet "computer", but you technically cannot run a single app on it unless Apples says you can. On top of that it's an underpowered, overpriced, non multitasking piece of marketing. A netbook for $200 less has TONS more functionality. It's not a horrible device, but people are making it out to be far more powerful/revolutionary/amazing than it actually is.
  5. As "fun" as it can be to be somewhere you do not belong, there are some things and places that should have a enormous "STAY THE HELL OUT" mental note in your head. A senator's office should have such a note.
  6. I think you stated it correctly in that they really aren't trying. If they did, somebody with a "valid" key would be complaining about how much "Microsoft sucks" because their copy of MS Office isn't working anymore. I see this a lot on volume license keys that get overused by pc repair folks.
  7. Release it please! I haven't listened to that show in forever.
  8. Thanks again for the awesome show! ...so when is episode 201 coming out ;-)
  9. Can't believe I forgot to mention this before, but Crutchfield.com is a good site to look into what fits, etc etc.
  10. Good idea, I think I'll go to the store and buy a short cheap premade cable in this case to use as a comparison point. There's a program called iperf which seems to be a good tool to test throughput and link quality. Isn't cat5 capable of gigabit speeds? I'd venture to say that your cat6 should perform flawlessly, but I'm pretty much a n00b when it comes to cabling. cat5 doesn't, but cat5e does. I've heard cat6 was better shielded, and maybe also more twisted, and can be used for longer distances than cat5e. Gotcha. I've heard something before about the amount of twists affecting range. Anywho, I remember reading this artice on Tom's Hardware a little while ago... http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gigabit-ethernet-bandwidth,2321-2.html I'm not sure what your setup is, but I'd be curious to hear what kind of results you get.

  12. Just to clarify that in case you are not sure, anywhere on the body of the car will ground it. And like PurpleJesus said, An inline fuse setup is your best bet. That way you can run your power cable directly to the battery.
  13. I'd have to double check, but I think Ubuntu 8.04 LTS supports GMA 500 (Intel/PowerVR, grr). It's what's in the fitpc2, which supports Linux. Why new versions don't support it is beyond me. UNR's interface requires something other than VESA to worp properly, so it is gonna suck unless you get a video driver working. I have an Everex Cloudbook that refuses to run any mainstream distro without major problems, so I feel your pain.
  14. Quality... pure quality... :-)
