Comment Re:Time Mathematics and Microsoft (Score 1) 480 480

Unless things have changed, Im pretty certain Microsoft doesnt use posix or "unix" time...

Windows NT time is specified as the number of 100 nanosecond intervals since January 1, 1601. UNIX time is specified as the number of seconds since January 1, 1970. There are 134,774 days (or 11,644,473,600 seconds) between these dates.

Maybe things have changed since NT... but Id have my doubts.

Not that that changes your point. It doesnt. Just sayin.

If you set the value of this to "2", you will get what you're looking for. Sort of... This will cause Firefox's "awesome" bar to match "LIKE 'foo%'". However, it will still look at page titles, not strictly URL. Still, this is the closest Ive been able to come to replicating old behavior.

Submission + - NVIDIA Launches Lower Cost GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB

Spinnerbait writes: This week NVIDIA launched a significantly lower cost version of their powerful new GeForce 8800 series graphics cards, dubbed the GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB. As the branding suggests, these cards come equipped with only 320MB of on-board frame buffer memory. They're also clocked at 500MHz for the GPU core and 1600MHz DDR on their GDDR3 memory interface, versus the top-of-the-line GeForce 8800 GTX with its 575MHz core and 1800MHz memory respectively. All told, for a $299- $329 price range, these new cards offer up excellent performance in current games, at high resolutions, with all eye candy turned on and at a more attractive cost with future DX10 capabilities to boot.

Submission + - P = NP Finally Proved?

Yosi writes: Ashay Dharwadker claims to have proved that P = NP. In a paper he publishes on his website he claims to have found a polynomial algorithm for finding maximal independent sets in a graph and provides actual source code implementation of the proposed algorithm. If this is indeed true, I guess a lot of professors will start looking for a new job.

Do not underestimate the value of print statements for debugging.
