8/8     What's the difference between Visual Studio and Windows NT SDK?  Do
        I need both to write code for NT target platform?
        \_ Yes.  What you want is the Microsoft Platform SDK, all 400 or 500
           megs worth.  You'll also need the latest visual studio service
           pack (I believe it's pack 5).

12/5    I suggest CSUA buy a Mac and run MacOS on it. Maybe run Linux in
        a VM, too. I think students will get more bang for their buck
        trying to run services on MacOS than with "Just Another Linux Box".
        \_ On what basis? We do have an AppleTV, which we've yet to hack
           so it runs full OS X, but as a OS X user myself, I don't see the
           OS being useful for useful services except if we get OS X server

4/13    I use IE7 to browse a web site, and the server says the UserAgent
        string is
        "UserAgent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.2; .NET
        CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.04506.30)"
        Is MS bowing to the Mozilla community?

6/27    For anyone who's owned a G5 running OS X (10.3 or 10.4), how often do
        you need to reboot if it's being used as a workstation?
        \_ Occasionally you will run into the Windows NT syndrome of the system
           needing a reboot for a system software patch - I'd say about once
           every couple of months on a stable release, and once or twice a
           month on a new one.  Other than that, I have never seen a piece of

6/2     In the 'official' part of the motd it says ssh1 would be shut off,
        weeks ago no less, and yet it still seems to be on.  What up with that?
        \_ Whoever did the change neglected to restart sshd.  Fixed.  -jvarga
           \_ I just tried ssh from a Solaris machine to soda and I got "ssh:
              connect to host http://soda.csua.berkeley.edu port 22: Connection
              refused".  I tried both with and without the "-2" option.  Now if

9/24    I have a directory with a bunch of image files names DSCNxxxx.jpg.
        What's the quickest way to rename them all to Dscnxxxx.jpg? (just
        changing the capitalization of the first 4 letters).
        \_ foreach i (*.jpg)
           mv $i `echo $i | sed -e s/DSCN/Dscn/`

        "Continuing security problems have eroded Internet Explorer's
        popularity; the market share for Explorer has dropped by more than a
        percentage point from 95.48 percent to 94.42 percent..."
        Gee that's gotta hurt! Poor MS.

2/13    In NT or XP, is there a way to display the IP address of a remote
        machine when the remote machine is pinging my machine?  Thanks.
        \_ netstat?
              \- netstat is ridiculous for this. hammer. nail. bad. wrong.
                 i believe tcpdump runs on msftware:

12/15   My laptop doesn't have the "windows" key and I run WinXP. How can I
        lock the desktop quickly since I can't do WINKEY-L ?
        \_ Winkey = Ctrl-Esc
           \_ Not exactly.  You can't chord with ctrl-esc.

12/9    Can someone recommend a way to read the contents of a FreeBSD
        partition with UFS filesystems from a Windows box?  It's a laptop
        disk which won't boot properly by itself, FreeBSD doesn't like the
        USB case I've put it in very much, and I don't have a Mac handy. -John
        \_ You need an NT (I'm assumming you are running NT version of Windows)
           filesystem driver for UFS. Once that is installed you should be able

              It seems to work incredibly well.
