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.
So are a lot of other chemicals which are added to or sprayed on foods. If we knew every effect of every chemical we put in our bodies, we'd likely be able to avoid a lot of illness and prolong our lives So really, drugs aren't any different than anything else. Other than the fact that, most of the time, we have a trackable supply chain with legally produced goods, and thus can make more informed decisions about them. But there's no guarantee that all legally produced...
As with anything, the experience you get from LSD will largely depend on your outlook on life, and the context in which you do it. I've genuinely felt that, in some situations, it's helped me come to understand parts of the human experience which I wasn't aware of before (awareness of the subtleties of human interaction and emotion, etc). Everyone has a particular way they interact with the world based on which parts of it they focus on, and in my experience, LSD helps...
