1/6     I got a Gillete mach3 turbo shaver in the mail.  Why is Gillete
        giving it away for free?  Are they stupid?
        \_ Anyone tried using a straight razor? They do it in the movies
           and it looks so easy.
           \_ It looks so easy when they jump 10 feet up too.
        \_ They want you to love their product and spend the rest of your
           life buying replacement blades.
        \_ Did you try it? Is it any better than Gillete Sensor?
           \_ The regular Sensor razor is little better than a disposable
              Bic.  With Excel you get little rubber flaps that reduce
           \_ Sensor Excel is a smoother shave than the mach3, but it is
                more likely to cut you. it's not good for heads or legs or
                sensitive faces. the mach3 turbo doesnt seem to be any
                different than the mach3, but it is 50% more expensive. i got
                \_ I second everything you said, except I never tried it
                   on my head or legs.  - op
                \_ no way.  Mach3 is a much closer shave for me than the
                   Sensor Excel, and I have some serious facial hair. -aspo
                   \_ Oh I forgot.  The one thing I don't like about the
                      Mach3 vs. the Sensor Excel is that if I don't shave
                      for a few days the Mach3 hurts more when I shave (but
                      still is less likely to cut up my face.)  The Mach3
                      Turbo doesn't seems to be a bit better in this respect.
                        \_ does or doesnt?
                \_ yeah, I learned the hard way too that Sensor Excel is bad
                   for my sensitive face ..
                   \_ I have a suspicion that Gillette purposely lowered
                      the quality for sensor excel blades so people would
                      move to mach3.  It's a damn blade, how many years
                      do they need to perfect it?
                      \_ Mach3 sucked ass last time i used it.  i have no
                         troubles with the excel...
        \_ I think they sent me mach3 when I turned 18.  Yeah, it's basically
           to get you to buy their blades, but a lot of people, including
           myself like mach3.  Oh, and I've known quite a few girls that
           liked it for their legs.
           \_ Damn!  No wonder my ex-girlfriend refuses to return me my
              mach3, relegating me to my crappy old sensor excel.
              \_ brilliant! you've figured out how to get STD's from your
                 ex without sex.

1/7     SQL/DB Question: Is there any way to do a query and only return a
        certain set of results? Like the results between 20-30. Kinda like
        what Google does when you choose what subset of results you want
        to see. It seems like they don't do one query and cache it,
        they do it dynamically based on the parameters. And I can't use
        something like Scrollable ResultSets because my program has to
        be stateless and the query can be done at any time. Did that make

        \_ I don't go to Free Republic since they cut off my posting
           priviledges for being a "troll." So much for freedom of speech.
                \_ There is no freedom of speech in a private enterprise
                   you twit.  The 1st Amendment applies to government
                   coercion.  I'm glad they revoked your priviliges as
                   it eliminates the possibility of reading any garbage you
                   might type.
                   \_ Interesting. Neither of you can spell "privileges".
                   \_ Too bad you can't handle posts by anyone who
                      might upset you in the slightest. Conservatives
                      love to talk about freedom of speech, but when they

1/6   Has anyone here ever played with end-to-end (integrated) QoS?
      I'm trying to find out whether I can use it to force a client to
      throttle down its bandwidth (reserving a minimum as opposed to
      a maximum amount of throughput.)  If so, can I do this based on
      source/destination IP, as opposed to application-specific?  I.e. have
      the sum total bandwidth to a certain host not exceed x kbps.  No, the
      routing equipment doesn't do differential QoS.  -John
      \_ QoS has two parts, first is classification of traffic and second
         is what you want to do with the different classifications.  If
         you're using a cisco box, you can first setup ACLs to classify the
         traffic.  And then shape that traffic to a specific bandwidth.
         I don't understand your comments on routing equipment doesn't do
         differential QoS.  This has to be performed on a router.
        \_ You're asking for conflicting information.  You want to set a min
           or a max for this client?
           \_ Sorry, thought it was clear.  I want to set a max, and I
              don't care if it's on the client or server.  -John
         \_ RSVP can ignore components that don't support it.  I was trying
            to figure out whether integrated ("end-to-end") QoS would let
            me restrict bandwidth available to client X when trying to
            access server Y.  Unfortunately, I think it only lets you
            specify how much bandwidth a client is allowed to reserve, and
            allocates for guaranteed delivery within that amount of bandwidth,
            but does 'best-effort' for all traffic above and beyond that,
            instead of just restricting the total bandwidth the client is
            allowed to use.  -John
