Script Requests......

02 June 2011 - 10:26 AM

What's with the sudden surge of new users making script requests these past couple weeks?  I thought it was clear that this was a development forum, not a "give me completed work that does exactly what I want for free" forum.  At least no one's going out of their way to answer the request.

Your workstation

10 February 2011 - 11:35 PM

So, my new system from work puts me up to six monitors, normally across 3 systems running Fedora, XP, and Win 7, but I also have a Mac system and a Vista system I can bring into the mix for a total of 14 cores and 26 GB of RAM.  I'm told that it's overkill, but I'm sure that some of you guys have comparable or sweeter setups.  So let's hear about/see them.

Getting rid of cigarette smell from a computer

03 February 2011 - 01:18 AM

Work just sent me a computer that reeks of cigarette smoke.  I've wiped down everything that was safe to and blew out the rest, but it's still making my office smell.  Anyone ever have any luck getting rid of the smell? 

Google's got lots of suggestions to try various methods, but not much about people saying any of that actually works.

Do you know more passwords or phone numbers?

17 November 2009 - 01:48 PM

I realized today that I've memorized about twice as many passwords as I know phone numbers.  I'm wondering if that's just an IT thing, but with how young kids are getting cell phones and how many online services they use, I'm thinking it may be a more general population thing.

New version of the Internet is out

23 September 2009 - 10:09 AM

According to Newsweek, Web 2.5 has been out for 2 years now.  Has anyone tried this upgrade? 

I'm just really surprised that no one in the industry knew about this version and it would take a poorly written popular press article to bring it to light.
