For a SVN server solution, the free version of VisualSVN would do nicely if you have a local PC running some kind of Windows NT based OS (XP and up would suffice), and is probably a lot faster too. Not necessarily safer though.

check out the files it produces (in the root of the drive or in dir00001 style directories)
where do I find the files?

Try a chkdsk like operation, and check out the files it produces (in the root of the drive or in dir00001 style directories), sometimes you can find pieces of sourcecode there.

DirectX is usually faster than OpenGL because most hardware manufacturers only develop decently optimized drivers for DirectX and not (or at least much less optimized) for OpenGL, as most games support/expect/require DirectX. And .NET graphics' subsystem is optimized for DirectX as well (WPF only shines/performs well on video chips with Direct9c+ hardware support with the correct drivers installed).

Open standards are indeed better because they are open, not technically better in all cases. undecided
1606  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Intel Xeon E3-1275 compatibility. on: May 14, 2011, 08:52:17 AM
Long answer: Going straight to the sources here (Asus) and here (Intel) give you all the specs.
Starting with the most important one, the socket LGA1155, they seem to at least physically match.
Next check is looking for what CPU's the manufacturer made the board for. There's no mention of this Xeon there, so I'm quite sure it's not going to work as you would like ohmy
Then try to find the matching Core ix processor, which looks like a Core i7 2600(K) would match closest.
Then look at the price of both Xeon $339,-; Core i7 2600 $294,-; Core i7 2600K $317,-
I'd ask: Why would you?

Short answer: No. Unless... (you can get your hands on both and just try without obligations)

This Tom's Hardware article explains why you'd want a real server-chipset for that CPU.

We can go to higher dpi's if anyone needs that: http://www.diginfo.tv/2011/05/13/11-0097-r-en.php (4.8" @ Full-HD + 3D)

Just upgraded my Chrome from 12.something dev to 13.0.761.0 dev-m and I can confirm it is blazingly fast, WOW!

Just have to check if the some of the quirks, like password storage and listbox behavior, finally are unbroken (they've been broken IMHO since at least 9.x), so I can re-instate it as my default browser for all the Jira stuff I do in my daily work. smiley

Oh, and then there's the matter of cost tellme
1610  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: tablet screens to go blind for on: May 13, 2011, 03:07:17 PM
Probably the combination of the resolution more usual for a 30" monitor, combined with the 10.1" form factor of this display undecided

I suspect that Apple asked Samsung to make a 9.7" version with this resolution, but they couldn't produce them (yet), or didn't want to, to get an angle on the iPad with their own tablet. (But that didn't stop them before, AFAICS)

The iPhone 4 display is 330 dpi, higher then the first generation of laser printers @ 300 dpi...

You could contact your ISP and explain your problem? Can be a network issue on their side.

Have not seen this issue, neither with FF3 nor FF4. Haven't tried with other browsers, I try to avoid them.

Is there some way to stop this (only does it with heuristics turned on)?
Upload to VirusTotal and/or Jotti, and report the results to Kaspersky, so they can fix this false positive.

One piece of software I would love to find is  a meter and syllable counter for help me with keeping my poetry in check.
I haven't seen that feature with the suggested apps so far, but I could have overlooked, so it could probably be a nice improvement suggestion to both WriteMonkey and ImmersEd.

FWIW, I'd leave Q10 alone, WriteMonkey has the same and better features, and is actively developed.
1618  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Pointers to nullable types (C#) on: May 08, 2011, 05:30:06 AM
@wraith808: That all makes perfectly good sense.

so again, why is it special?
A few more thoughts:
  • They (MS) explicitly don't want you to do this
  • You could exchange the int? by Int32 and get a pointer to that
1619  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Software recommendations for writers on: May 07, 2011, 03:47:20 PM
@cthorpe : That site is, though a bit full, very clear in it's intentions, a relief to read it, thanks for the pointer! Oh, and a useful writers tool indeed smiley

Read another software tip in a magazine today: ImmersEd from www.tajuta.com, that seems to extend the uncluttered writing environment with a few nifty gadgets, that can be helpful when writing, gotta start testing though.

Like 40hz said, there are tons of tools...
1620  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Windows equivalent to GNOME's typing break? on: May 07, 2011, 03:29:47 PM
Well, besides Workrave, that's rather configurable IMHO, so can be as lightweight as you want, there's the commercial Workpace, and it also has a few nifty features like counting the number of keyboard- and mouse-clicks, and is as configurable as Workrave. (I've used both in the past, but stopped using tools like that; just listen better to what the old body says, and take more breaks/stops).

But Instant Boss, by our 'own' App103, sounds just as what you need, indeed, +1

1622  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Pointers to nullable types (C#) on: May 07, 2011, 09:27:02 AM
And finally, a Stack Overflow article on the subject, showing a nice extension method that might come in useful
1623  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Pointers to nullable types (C#) on: May 07, 2011, 09:12:03 AM
There's this blog article from around when nullable types where introduced (.NET 2.0), that has some more interesting info

And also this blog post that puts a claim around my original assumption... (I did not check these claims/examples though)
1624  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Pointers to nullable types (C#) on: May 07, 2011, 08:59:14 AM
I've done no research on the subject, though I've done some stuff, including nullable types, in C#. But not in this direction. Nevertheless...

I kind of assume you read this msdn subject explaining nullable types?
It states:
Quote
T can be any value type including struct; it cannot be a reference type

This makes me suspect the actual implementation is something handled at compile-time, so pointers for getting at it won't exist during runtime?
