8/20    Been a long time since I work on C/C++.  Can anyone help make
        sense of this message?

        main.o: file not recognized: File truncated
        \_ Maybe the .o was originally compiled for a different architecture?
           \_ Hmm...no, I am doing a clean build.
              \_ problem with the compile options and compile line?  What is
                 it?
              \_ Are you building on a nfs mounted volume? (perhaps on
                 Linux using v2?)
                 Linux using nfs v2?)
        \_ filesystem full or hit quota?

9/13    Thanks to Jordan, our disk server is no longer virtualized. Our long
        nightmare of poor IO performance should hopefully be over. Prepare for
        another long nightmare of poor hardware reliability!

        Just kidding! (I hope)

4/28    Win 3.1 was more widely adopted than Win 3.0.  Win XP (5.1) was more
        widely adopted than Win 2k (5.0).  Now it looks like Win 7 (6.1) is
        going to be more widely adopted than Vista (6.0).  Is this a trend on
        Microsoft x.0 versions being bad?
        \_ duh.

3/8     I have a mod_rewrite question that I think should be straight-
        forward but I think I'm not getting something.
        I have a virtual server with some root, say /home/user/public_html/
        and in there I have two subdirs, say /app1/ and /app2/
        and i want the following:

2/26    If I want to rsync a perforce or svn directory while users
        are checking things in, could I wind up with a corrupted copy?
        \_ sure why not.  if you are really cool, your copy of the svn
           repo is on LVM, and you snap the LVM to copy it.
           \_ It'll seem less cool when you realize you've taken a snapshot
              of a block level device, which only guarantees that this set of

11/29   I'm experimenting with virtualization, and as a poor college student
        I'm wondering what the best alternatives for virtualization are, and
        how best to cut my teeth on messing with non-linux platforms (or I
        guess interesting stuff on Linux would work too). Right now I've got
        FreeBSD7 running on KVM on my home computer (on a Core 2 Quad), and am
        somewhat at a loss as to how to use it. (More details: bridged

8/27    I have a rather large linux partition.  I just got a new laptop
        and want to move all my settings and customization to that new
        computer.  how to do this?  I tried remastersys but it seems that it
        get stuck somewhere, and I am hoping it is not really trying to create
        a 26GB iso file.
        any ideas?  is there anyway i can back up my debian package database

5/5     Any recommendations for data recovery software for NTFS partitions?
        I have an NTFS partition that produces this error in linux:
          "ntfs_read_inode_mount(): Couldn't find first extent of $DATA attribute
           in attribute list. $MFT is corrupt. Run chkdsk"
        \_ Eh... I'd try it with a real windows box before assuming the
           partition is bad.  NTFS itself is pretty solid.  How old is the

        \_ This article is crap.  While yes, 99.9% of all websites don't
           need any serious scalability plans, if any of them become worth
           anything they will need to scale.  If you write a web application
