5/10    "Tech researcher Gartner recently forecast that by December more than
        80 percent of multinationals will use IT outsourcing to save money,
        overcome skills shortages or increase flexibility.

        Without a doubt, much of that work is headed to India."

        \_ Americans are fat, lazy, and stupid.
           \_ Agreed.  I came to this country 13 years ago.  While I haven't
              gotten any fatter, I sure have become lazier and more stupid than
              before.
        \_ Uh, dude this the Gartner group.  They'll make a study that says
           anything if you pay them $$.

5/10    I've noticed that i've been getting a max 60KB/sec download on my

5/10    http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?cid=3499732&sid=32423 proving that
        open source = racist.
        \_ I'm pretty sure that guy thinks himself funny.  This is a common
           delusion.  Youi, however, have no excuse.
           \_ I'm not Youi!
           \_ It wasn't a humor piece.  It's all true.  Why the blinders?

5/11    Netrek featured on Slashdot?
        \_ yes?
        \_ what is the differences between Netrek and the xtrek?
          \_ netrek used X protocol to display as an X client from the
          \_ xtrek used X protocol to display as an X client from the
             server to your display (workstation).  Needless to say since X
             protocol uses TCP and is pretty bandwidth hungry, it doesn't
             perform as well.  Netrek overcame this by doing all the X protocol
             graphics in a 'local' client program, and optimized all the
             network traffic in a really efficient combination of UDP packets
             and TCP sessions.  This enabled netrek to be played over great
             distances, and with fairly large network lag levels. -ERic
             \_ Thanks!  I remember eons ago I used to *HATE* people who
                play xtrek because they taken up all the resources while
                I was trying to do homework :)  --non-CS major geek
                \_ It is unlikely you're talking about xtrek.  No one's
                   played xtrek since 1988.  -tom
                   \_ oh right.  noone has been around longer or done
                      anything around here earlier than tom has.  all
                      bow to tom's 10cm ego.
                      \_ You're mad because he's right.  And tom's ego is huge.
                         \_ did tom ever graduate?
