Which is just another way of saying that the onsite guy will get assigned more of the shit work. One more incentive to stop being the onsite guy.
The democrats had the internet turned down in the redneck states? Just to keep things quiet in for the inauguration?
Didn't fastixx notice a drop in ticket sales for monster truck races ?
Sometimes the unavailability of one item limits the uptake of the other. When Pentiums first started shipping, there were relatively few motherboards available for them. (Compared to the 386 stuff.) I can't verify the statement, but something like 90% of the Pentium chips were going onto Intel boards.
Availability of mice had a similar limiting affect on uptake of Windows. Likely explains the Microsoft mouse.
If desktop boards are no longer strategic for Intel, I can see why they'd want to focus their energies elsewhere.
You sure that wasn't 60MB? 20-ish years ago, 60GB would've been a pretty sweet capacity.
There were no tapes on the Enterprise. Most of the time they used something like a color coded compact flash. It appeared to be inductively connected though, as there were no features on it that looked like a connector.
I've been into Powells Technical book store about 5 times in the last year. And all 5 times, a book that the catalog indicated as (possibly) being on the shelf and in stock, wasn't.
Just about anywhere you go, the sales person will typically mumble something like "We can order that for you." Why reward a store that doesn't keep books in stock? I can order it myself on Amazon, and reward them (or the associate store actually selling the book) for keeping copies in stock.
After a while, it just gets easier to look to Amazon first.
I live in the US, and I can sometimes buy new (but advertised as used) technical books from Amazon out of places like India for less than I can buy them here. Because they're priced at what the Indian market will bear, even with the freight charge, they're still cheaper than here. Modern Operating Systems by Andrew S. Tanenbaum sells for Rs. 450.00 over there for example.
