I'm currently working as C# developer for a small company in Germany. I enjoy programming and highly value improving my skills and my code.

Feel free to visit my blog, where I (besides programming) mainly write about the ancient board game Go.

comment Is there a way to tell the runtime of a RAM module?
@HåkanLindqvist That is what I was getting at. The BIOS can read the correct timing settings for any RAM module from the module itself without the need of manual input (as was the case when I was younger). But since you suggest the required data are not present in there, it seems I'm mostly out of luck. Similarly, Lifeboy gave a good explanation of why my initial idea of an access counter was stupid.

comment How to sleep in a batch file?
@Massimo Alright! I guess we just have different views. If you don't mind I'll still leave this answer up since it seems to be better than pinging localhost n times as is most often described.

comment How to sleep in a batch file?
@Massimo It's most likely not what it was intended to do :) But I think it's a good solution still - it does work better than timeout in some scenarios (in particular higher resolution). Also, it's become quite well known, so most people would not be very surprised (i.e. confused) when they see it in your batch file.

comment Is there a way to manually provide virtual memory?
@gparent: No, its an unsupported legacy app (even though it has thousands of users). And honestly, it behaves pretty well considering the hard limit of only 1 GB system RAM.

comment Is there a way to manually provide virtual memory?
@gparent: It pretty much does precisely that. It just sits there and happily consumes memory :)

@Dan: I don't know how it's done technically, but the page file is disabled and it's not possible to turn it on.

comment Is there a way to manually provide virtual memory?
@Dan: I can log in, I just can reliably run the application. What I'm looking for is something like a reverse RAM disk - but I'm not sure it's technically possible - or a workaround.

comment Is there a way to manually provide virtual memory?
@ChrisS: I wish I could - they already declined my inquiry. Rewriting the program is impossible, too. Only option left would be to pay for more RAM.

Because I have no control over the page file, the hoster does.

Is the htpasswd/authz format used by all Svn servers, or is it specific to VisualSVN?
