8/26    Can anybody else here clarify what this boinc quote means?
        "We fixed the bogus URL bug and all servers are back up. If your
         cache is empty of all valid workunits and you have any of the
         bogus workunits, then reset the project."
        How does one "reset the project"?
        \_ It sounds like some internal company lingo.  Good luck!
        \_ not that i've ever used boinc, but based on hearing that it
           allows other projects besides seti@home, i'd assume it means
           zapping the data files or whatnot for whatever project you happen
           to be running.

10/27   I just read an article that Facebook had moved their database
        to all SSD to speed throughput, but now I can't find it. Has
        anyone else seen this? Any experience with doing this? -ausman
        \_ I hope you're not running mission critical data:

8/18    trying to write an intentionally slow regex.
        what is your worst regex ever?
        this is using MySQL regexp but I'll also accept
        perl format         --brain
        \_ you need to know how regex is implemented internally in order to
           have a worst regex in terms of running time. Something that uses

12/18   I'm loving the Privacy Browsing feature on Safari. I turn it
        on, browse porn, then turn it off, and no one using my
        computer would ever know that I browsed porn (no history,
        no cache, nada). Loving it man.
        \_ The guy with the backdoor knows. Also, the shadow knows.
           \_ That may be the case and I don't really care about the

11/14   I have a bunch of pictures and I find that thumbs.db on
        Windows XP to be very useful, especially when you're on NAS
        and the network is slow. Having that said, my Win XP has
        stopped generating thumbs.db even though I've set it to generate
        thumbs.db (Properties->View->Uncheck "Do not cache thumbnails.").
        How do I force Windows to generate Thumbs.db? Googling seems

9/4     Someone asked yesterday about the Obama/Ayers link.  It took me a while
        to find a link I was happy with, this one is ok.  This guy goes into
        excruciating detail about the Annenberg Challenge and CAC over a
        number of blog posts.  The full Annenberg documents were only recently
        released, and this post predates the release.  The documents are still
        being digested, so this is far from the final word.

9/4     Regarding the Firefox 3 memory usage question that I asked on 8/29,
        here are some new numbers (VM Size in MB reported by Task Manager):

7/19    Why is OpenDNS popular? It still forwards me to ads when I go
        to an invalid domain. That is really annoying.
        \_ For one thing, they were never vulnerable to the latest round of DNS
           \_ i think the latest round of dns spoofing attack was overblown.
              yes there was a security hole... but no one ever exploited it.
