This is Jet (aka The Jetster, Jetski, Jetski Bibbles, or even just Bibbles). 'Walk' must be spelled around Miss Bibbles (we're pretty sure she's catching on to that as well  tellme), for fear of the destruction of the back door, and you daren't utter the words 'bye-bye car-car' unless you intend to take her out on the town (you can get away with B-B-C-C though).

She was rescued from the local shelter, and has the sweetest disposition you've ever seen in an animal. She enjoys pizza crusts, and liver treats (aka doggie-crack). Unfortunately, she belongs to the other half, but you can rest assured I'll be hanging around as long as she's here Wink

And now finally, the pics:

In order that you might avoid the same outdated language issue that you're currently effected by, might I suggest a more heavily used language than VB.NET? Developers are fleeing VB.NET in droves for the power, consistency and familiarity of C#.

Where code maintainability and longevity are of primary concern, it can be advantageous to go with the more... dare i say, popular, languages.

I just thought the rule was that no major new version was to be offered through auto-update just like one couldn't auto-update to v3 from v2, but v2.x upgrades were still offered to v2.x users.
Nope. See here.

Firefox 3.5 will not be offered via automatic update until Mozilla considers the browser and the update procedure to be very stable. Until then, the onus is on the user to manually update their Firefox installations.

A series of threads has been started on StackOverflow that I think every coding nerd/geek at heart would greatly enjoy reading. They're basically just a list of all the unusual and underused features of various languages for people to preuse. They exist for the following languages currently:

A few of my favorites:
C++[attachthumb=1][attachthumb=2]
C[attachthumb=3][attachthumb=4]
HTML[attachthumb=5][attachthumb=6]
JavaScript[attachthumb=7][attachthumb=8]
Perl[attachthumb=9][attachthumb=10]
PHP[attachthumb=11][attachthumb=12]
Warning: As someone who is familiar with almost all of these languages, I will warn you: you can spend a lot of time reading these. Also, keep in mind you have a daily vote limit of 30 embarassed

If they sold something that wasn't theirs to sell, then I'm not sure that anyone can say that it is wrong for the items to be 'returned' and the money paid back to them.
Utterly disgusting behavior from Amazon.

[rant]
On the other hand...anyone who bought into Kindle probably agreed to some outrageous TOS that they didn't read or understand and are now being bitten in arse by it. Maybe this will cause people to use some common sense before they buy their next gadget.

Git on Windows is still pretty rough around the edges. If you're going to be committing from Windows, I would recommending using a service that supports SVN.

Fair enough.

Really I'm not sure how the free email services manage to keep a viable business model going after enabling POP3/IMAP/SMTP. Is it possible to have your CompuServe email forwarded to your Gmail/Yahoo account?

CompuServe isn't exactly gone.  It's changed into another Webmail system, i.e. supply your own ISP instead of using CompuServe itself.  There's no option for POP3 that I can see, which is a pity as most of the alternatives I've tried do have POP3.
That's gone if you ask me, they're just letting everyone keep their email addresses (assuming someone somewhere still holds one).

Hey all,

I've been enjoying some random video blog posts that have been flying around work lately, and while I didn't enjoy any of them to the point where I'd watch them frequently (they were all one-time funnies) I quite liked the format.

So does anyone have any suggestions on some good video blogs? Naturally I'd be predisposed to enjoy the geekier/nerdier ones, but post anything you like in here for everyone to see smiley

Thanks guys, Ehtyar.

I can recommend nginx and mongoose. I've had more experience with nginx, and it's quite a widely used, but little known web sever. Let us know what you decide on and if you run into trouble.

Someone posted on YouTube that the artist who composed the background music for the HTC ads was bethurum. After having been through the samples for every one of his tracks (ugh) I think this might be correct as I can hear similarities, but alas I don't believe the track I'm after has been released.

Oh well, I'll keep my eye out.
