Living Room / Humble Ebook Bundle II with Little Brother!
« on: July 04, 2013, 01:24 AM »
Humble Ebook Bundle II with Little Brother!

It's time for another Humble Ebook Bundle (https://www.humblebundle.com/)! Once again, I was honored to serve as
volunteer curator of the Humble Ebook Bundle, a project from the Humble Indie Bundle people who've made Internet history by bundling
together awesome, DRM-free media and letting you name your price for it. We did the first Humble Ebook Bundle last fall (with my novel
Pirate Cinema) and made over $1.25 million in two weeks (!). The new Ebook Bundle is even cooler. Here's the lineup:

  • The Last Unicorn (deluxe edition), by Peter Beagle
  • Just a Geek, by Wil Wheaton
  • Little Brother, by Cory Doctorow
  • Boneshaker, by Cherie Priest
  • Spin, by Robert Charles Wilson
  • Shards of Honor, by Lois McMaster Bujold

As with all the bundles, there is a secret stash of releases in the wings for week two; if your payment is higher than the average at the
time you make it, you get them for free (and they are sweet!). Otherwise, you can always get them by topping up your payment. And as
always, there's charities involved -- you can earmark some or all of your payment for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Child's Play, and
the Science Fiction Writers of America Emergency Medical Fund.

Living Room / Can DDR2-PC6400 RAM replace DDR2-PC5300 RAM?
« on: December 12, 2012, 01:16 AM »
I've got to use an aging workstation (Intel® Pentium® Processor E2140 desktop) at work. I would like to add more RAM (currently 1GB DDR2 PC5300 333MHz).

My question is: Can DDR2 PC6400 RAM replace or be combined with DR2 PC5300 RAM?

Thank you.  :)

German lab downgrades Redmond after zero-day detection rates slide

Another security software testing organisation, Virus Bulletin, says Security Essentials’ performance is sufficient to justify its VB100 rating, which can only be attained by software that “prove[ s] it can detect 100% of malware samples listed as 'In the Wild' by the WildList Organization” without generating any false positives.

The desktop publishing software SpringPublisher has just been upgraded to version 3.0, and the team behind the product was nice enough to provide us with a review copy and ten software product keys for a give away. The program is offered as a free and professional version, with the free version limited to personal use and without some of the features of the pro version.

I prepared worksheet for a client using Excel 2007. I locked certain cells and protected the sheet using Review|Protect Sheet menu.

For compatibilty, I opened it in OpenOffice.org Calc (version 3.2.0) and found out that it canceled the Excel's sheet protection; all locked cell can be altered.

Is it a bug in Excel or in Calc?

Dear DC Forum Members,

I am an intermediate computer user. Currently I have the following e-mail setup at the office:

current_setup.gif

I use Thunderbird as my e-mail client. Today I see that Thunderbird cannot handle my large e-mail database (8 GB). To solve the problem a friend suggests that I setup a local IMAP server and use Thunderbird as an IMAP client. The scenario is as follows:

local_imap.gif

For the incoming mail:
  • The local IMAP server pulls e-mails via POP3 server
  • I access the e-mail on the local IMAP server using Thunderbird as IMAP client

For outgoing mail:
  • I compose e-mail on Thunderbird
  • I sent the mail through SMTP server via local IMAP server

My question are:
1. Is that IMAP setup possible on Windows XP Pro?
2. What IMAP server can be easily set up on Windows XP Pro that can handle such scenario?

Well, that's my questions. Thanks in advance!  :)
