Well that makes Snow Leopard a no-go for me given that I keep all of my work on an eSATA drive. Both the eSATA Expresscard I use in my MacBook Pro and the eSATA PCIe card I use in my Mac Pro are based around the Sil3132 chipset. Hopefully this is resolved soon...
So who do you think did worse by Latin America: Ernesto Guevara or the multitude of CIA-backed dictators like Augusto Pinochet?
Oh sure, I could develop using a Mac Mini just fine as well. However, if you work on large software projects, the extra time you spend recompiling with a slow computer on a daily basis is far more expensive than the extra cost of a faster computer.Bottom to top compile time for the current project I'm working on:2.0 GHz Mac Mini w/ 2 GB RAM: 15 minutes2 x 2.8 GHz Mac Pro w/ 4 GB RAM: 3 minutesThe Windows developers report similar speed differences between those with newer...
One thing Microsoft forgot to mention was that you're going to have a heck of a time trying to port the look and feel of your iPhone app over to WinMo. Sure the underlying functionality might be fairly straightforward to port, but you're probably going to have to redesign the entire work flow of the app to match whatever user interface elements are available on WinMo. That's no small task. The porting example I see on their website is for an application which has a...
Extra couple thousand? Dunno where you shop, but the last time I compared a Mac Pro to an equivalent PC, the price difference was a couple hundred dollars tops:Dell Precision T7500Mac Pro Looks like the same price to me. And you still have to buy Visual Studio for the PC. Even if you build a DIY PC, if you build it to those exact specs, you're only going to save about $750 (and have no tech support). Go ahead, price out the components on TigerDirect and see. Make sure...
I admit, that's a nice feature. However, if you want to share your Drobo filesystem over a network, then you need to also buy DroboShare. I get that for free with my Linux box (with support for all network sharing protocols: SMB, AFP, NFS, FTP, SFTP, UPnP, and whatever comes up in the future).
Guess you haven't heard of Wake-on-LAN?
Might as well join in on the fun...$ du -sh /filestore/*31M\t/filestore/documents835M\t/filestore/ebooks145G\t/filestore/karaoke87G\t/filestore/misc71G\t/filestore/music34G\t/filestore/photos48G\t/filestore/projects34G\t/filestore/software188G\t/filestore/videoYes, I like to keep things organized. Of course, that's all on a Linux box using a 2.25TB RAID-5 (4x750G) and shared over 2x1G Ethernet + Wi-Fi (Wireless N). Much more useful and upgradable than a specialty device...
Precisely. If there is a way to launch a catastrophic attack on cell towers from your phone, then simply banning apps isn't going to prevent it from happening.
I was on the verge of using that quote in one of my posts. Here's another good oneI never noticed the great synth sound in that ad before.
