there are programs designed specifically for moving installed software from one place to another.. can't remember names off hand but they do exist.  maybe someone else can think of some, otherwise i will try to remember.

having said that, it's always somewhat of a crapshoot, and you should give strong consideration to uninstall then reinstall in desired location.

For example, I just came back from training for a specific Electrical Engineering software called SKM (which I was really impressed with from a software standpoint, I'd write a review, but no one would care here!) and this software costs thousands of dollars.  Just imagine, if an open source program came out that was truly as good as this program, this entire company would be out of business...and quickly at that!


this is definitely getting off topic, but i'd just like to add that i disagree with this.

i'm learning more and more over time about the price that has to be put on TIME and SUPPORT.

it seems that companies who buy these thousand dollar software products are buying the support system associated with a company as much as they are buying the software itself.  maybe someone like sentinel who does enterprise level purchasing can jump in here, but it seems to me that a company would rather pay $5000 for some software and be confident that if they have a problem they will be able to pick up the phone and get some tech support, than pay $0 and then end up with no one to contact for help.

this is why youll see a lot of the open source business models that are basically all about suppot.  the software is free, but you can buy a support contract for major money..

i think i have found out the cause of the server problems.
just received this in the mail:

thanks for the screenshot koreth, at 12pt the Consolas really looks nice, but becomes a bit blurry as it gets smaller.

the main motivation for these bitmapped fonts is to make something that is monospaced and pixel-level tweaked for a very specific small point size.  so they aren't appropriate for tasks where you might want larger fonts.

seems the server is still having some troubles.. i've been working witht he tech support people for the last day, constantly, on the problems, which they seem to be having a very hard time identifying and fixing.

just wanted to let you know i am working hard on this and we will get it sorted. hopefully when it's over we will have an even faster and better tuned server.  thanks for your understanding.

26919  News and Reviews / Official Announcements / explanation about the Feb.21 server downtime (plus digg.com effect) on: February 22, 2006, 01:46:27 AM
jroad's thread comparing bitmapped fonts got mentioned on frontpage of digg.com on feb.21 and it threw the server into a tizzy..

ps.i thought we bought an expensive dedicated server account to be able to handle such cased  Cry


the server itself was mostly online throughout but it looks like a small problem that caused the /tmp directory to switch out of world readable mode caused a cascase of problems whenever the mysql database engine needed to make a temp file, which triggered a whole days worth of troubles until it was found.  whether this is all going to happen the next time we hit some real traffic is anyone's guess, but if anyone knows another good dedicated server company with good knowledgable tech support, please let me know.


thanks everyone for being so patient..  now back to your regularly scheduled programming..
