comment What is ECC ram and why is it better?
I disagree with the article. I think everyone should be using ECC. I wasn't going to give in but I wanted a new Core I7 enough that I finally did. However, I am sure my 6GB of RAM are picking up errors all over the place.

A bit error in a number anywhere, including someone's small business finance package can be very small or very large. It all depends on what bit.

I consider any Java software that won't run on the very newest 1.6 JVM in both 32 and 64 bit mode to be horribly broken.

comment Windows 7 RC Optimizations for Netbook
I thought that Shadow Copy existed in all versions of Vista and Win7 (used by the OS for restore points, forex), it just isn't available for use by user except in some versions.

In all fairness to the customer Kara, they do have a point. The way your software is written no doubt assumed "Latency is zero", which I see in almost all DB access software.

Debian is even barer than Ubuntu for server installs though.

comment Using Linux IPTables, How to block torrents or any P2P protocols?
One other step involved in that is using Group Policy to push a trusted root certificate for the SSL proxy so it can forge trusted certs.

@packs: More and more BitTorrent clients offer full encryption and even camouflage as other protocols because of ISPs doing packet inspection.

comment Ideal specs for a developer workstations?
Voted this up because it's just too cool, but I'd say that system is more for movie editing than programming.
