8/26    After I save a file in win95, I need to process it from DOS prompt
        (to use with sftp for putty for example). I find the file name to be
        "currupted" - it's shorter and contains strange characters like "~".
        I know this must be a feature from MS but how to get around it and
        access the file from DOS using the real file name?
        \_ try using cygwin
        \_ the win95 shell displays that because it's DOS and DOS doesn't
           do more than 8.1 filenames. Just use those shorter names
           (i believe they show up correctly in windows), use the long name
           with quotes around it (i think that works) or better yet
           upgrade to win 2000.
        \_ if you use the short file name with scp, you'll lose the long file
           name on the other side.  you need to double quote the LFN to do
           what you're talking about.  or as the above say use cygwin or w2k.
        \_ By "DOS prompt", do you mean the DOS window in Win95, restarting
           Win95 in DOS mode, or plain MS-DOS 6.xx?
        \_ Enclose your long/full name with double quotes.
        \_ Use double quotes.
        \_ I think double quotes will do the trick.

9/19    "No, A Severed Finger Will Not Be Able to Access a Stolen iPhone 5S"
        I'm sure the Apple QA department has tested extensively that a severed
        finger will not be able to access a stolen iPhone 5S.
        \_ It doesn't matter whether or not a severed finger can be used.  It
           matters whether or not a robber thinks that a severed finger can be

8/29    There was once a CSUA web page which runs an SSH client for logging
        on to soda.  Does that page still exist?  Can someone remind me of the
        URL please?  Thx.
        \_ what do you mean? instruction on how to ssh into soda?
           \_ No I think he means the ssh applet, which, iirc, was an applet
              that implemented an ssh v1 client.  I think this page went away

8/6     Amazon and Apple have lame security policies:
        "First you call Amazon and tell them you are the account holder, and
         want to add a credit card number to the account. All you need is the

         address. "

8/12    Ruby coders, do you mostly DIY your stuff or use the ruby libs out
        there?   How is their quality compared to other libs you have used
        for other langs?  Thx.
        \_ I use Ruby for hobby stuff, etc.  I use libraries for system stuff
           (web access, process, etc.) but that's about it.  Perl libraries are
           much better/more complete.  I assume because of the maturity and

2/20    There was a failure validating the SSL/TLS certificate for the server
        The reason for the failure was
                          self signed certificate in certificate chain (details)
        We have not verified the identity of your server. If you ignore this certificate validation

        Don't get overhyped on PS3 and Wii.  CNET reporter says that in his
        informal poll, 3 out of 6 people he knew who got an early Xbox 360
        had their hardware eventually fail.  The warranty is only 90 days,
        although after enough bad press MS is paying for all repairs for
        machines built before 2006.

        but what are things like "\\My Workgroup" or "\\MYCOMPANY"?

10/25   NT was supposed to be much more stable than Win3.x.  Then Win2k was
        supposed to be much more stable than NT.  And now XP is supposed to
        be much more stable than 2k.  Sigh.
        \_ Thing is, Win2k really is more stable than NT. Sure, it locks up
           occassionally, but not the seemingly hourly BSODs in NT

5/21    Is it worth buying a new wintel PC right now or should I wait until
        the Pentium4/Athlon prices drop more? I looking into buying a 1GHz
        Pentium3 or similar system, I just went and configured a Dell Dimension
        with 933MHz CPU, 256MB RAM (SDRAM) 32MB GeForce2. No monitor, with
        RedHat Linux, no windows. Came out at like $985

1/15    On NT/Win98, how do you add "notepad" for example in the
        "Send To" menu.  MS Help is useless.
        \_ C:\windows\SendTo
           It's not a trivial thing for a consumer to use, so it's not
           in MS Help.  God forbid consumers muck around in c:\windows\.
           \_ For NT/2000 SendTo is in the user's directory.  - mikeym

2/7     How come it takes NT several times longer than Win95 or DOS to copy
        a lot of small files to a floppy diskette?  Copying a few big files
        doesn't have this problem.  Thx.  -- yuen
        \_ does xcopy solve your problem?
           \_ I thought it would, but for some reason no.  Both xcopy and copy
              on NT are very slow when copying a lot of small files like 20KB

2/4     In C, how do I tell how much memory/CPU time used/stats/etc another
        process is using? Do I have to be a root process?
        \_ In unix it's OS dependent but usually found somewhere under
           the /proc filesystem.
                \_ /proc is for pansies
        \_ First off, the C language doesn't facilitate such things.

        'HIMEM.SYS is missing  Please make sure this file is in your windows
        directory' then the computer opens in DOS not windows 95 (which I
        went back to after all my win 98 problems).  Anyway, I've checked
        the wondows directory and the himem.sys file is there so I don't know
        what the problem is.  Any suggestions?
