If 0.999... != 1, then there exists a number which is greater than 0.999... and less than 1. What is this number?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
If I'm programming in Python, then I'm not programming in Perl.
Bullshit. If you only have room in your brain for one language, then you're a shit programmer and no one cares what you think.
Rolsky used to think of Mason + mod_perl as providing the whole stack. He doesn't anymore. But he still works on Mason, and still uses it -- as a frontend to other frameworks. So you're absolutely right
SDL/GL is available on Wii Linux, but running a game under Wii Linux means mediocre performance and only running on "hacked" Wiis. Going the "official" route would require a much more thorough port of BBGL into Nintendo-approved bits. And lots of direct cooperation from Bit-Blot. And a few grand and some legal hassles.
Until a recent (late last year?) update you couldn't *do* anything useful with the SD card. You could put music or pictures on it, and you could put games on it if you didn't want to play them. Anything you actually wanted to run had to be moved back into main storage (moved, not copied, due to piracy paranoia), and then moved back when you were done with it (it couldn't just be quickly deleted because you had to move it the first time, due to piracy paranoia). So the existence of more than one app over 150MB would have completely crippled users' ability to enjoy the system.
Why they haven't changed the limits since then? Meh. Nintendo has never really made intelligent decisions.
Right where I put it. Also, there's no DRM on homemade recordings; that doesn't benefit major studios...
I barely got passed "486MHz CPU, 28 MB of RAM"
Who passed it to you?
Older than it needs to be. I ran Slackware 4 (just about contemporary with Redhat 6.0) on a laptop with lower specs than that, no problem.
Damn Small Linux and Tiny Core Linux being some of the obvious choices. Your real problem is getting things booted in the first place. I wonder whether gPXE is able to see your PCMCIA network card. If it did, you could just boot that off of a floppy and from there it would be a pretty simple task to netinstatll something; if not, well I'm pretty sure DSL has a set of floppies still. You could also try installing Slackware 9, which I think was the last version to ship a floppy set -- just install the very base system from there and then once you're booted you can try an in-place upgrade over the network.
I was hoping for a review of Churchill's memoirs.
Of course, we are willing to defend your right to have that opinion
You may be, but your coworkers took the job mostly because they figured getting paid to drive around in a jeep with a bunch of buddies and shoot shit sounded like a good time.
I prefer Chihuahua Del Este.
Microsoft is the new Tupperware?
All that's required to set up netboot.me is a spare writable CD, USB key, or floppy disk to write a small (less than 1MB) disk image to. Alternately, determined geeks can change their DHCP server to allow computers to netboot directly. Once you've done that, booting off the device on any computer with wired ethernet (wifi is a work in progress) will automatically cause the bootloader to download the current version of the menu from netboot.me, which you can then find the boot image you want to boot from. Selecting it causes the boot image to be downloaded and booted immediately.
Best of all, netboot.me lets you add your own boot configurations; once you've tested them, and if they're of general interest, you can file a bug to have them included in the menu system. netboot.me is capable of booting any linux kernel and any other standard boot image, as well as disk images and CD images, thanks to syslinux's memdisk.
The getting started and help pages have many more details on how to use netboot.me, and how to contribute to it. The more boot images in the system the better, so contributions are much appreciated."
