This is what happened.

When Friends and Big Bang cast members decide to unite for higher paychecks, the executives cave. A few years ago, some of the minor stars on CSI tried to do the same and were canned immediately.

I think they were trying to set a precedent for 2nd/3rd tiet actors/participants in a show that such actions will result in a 100% paycut. I can't totally blame them either.

Do a web search for Gameboy in Iraq. You'll turn up a fully-functioning gameboy that survived mortars(bombs?) hitting a base. The thing is mostly black and has some of the plastic melting, but it still plays tetris and is on display in a museum.

I live in New York City and I can vouch for this. It's in the Nintendo World Store in Rockefeller Center. It's not technically a "museum," but it's in a display case on the 2nd floor with some special/vintage Nintendo products. It is half-melted as ausekills says. They have it auto-playing the original Tetris.

As a small business owner, I just wish they would collect sales tax. I know that sounds crazy, but to be able to write off expenses and proved you pay sales tax, its far easier to go to Amazon now. Otherwise, I have to pay the sales tax to the state by check at a later time which is a PITA.

If you have some bare-metal lying around, I would recommend XenServer (http://www.xenserver.org/). I used to be a VMWare proponent for SMB's, until I saw that product. If you need a virtual container on an existing workstation, VirtualBox is really the only player in town. I used to use VMWare Server, but Vmware doesn't support it anymore. Its a shame, it was a great product and I'm still running a few VM's on my beefy workstation for testing.

+ - Is the OCSP Necessary?

The certificate was installed without any problems, but a few minutes later all of our Firefox users could not connect to our secure side. Come to find out, that Firefox has this OCSP SSL (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Online_Certificate_Status_Protocol) check on by default, whereas none of the other browsers (IE/Chrome/Safari) do. My question is doesn't OCSP break the internet? The certificate on our server was completely valid and working fine, but Firefox decided not to trust it."

How many NASA managers does it take to screw in a lightbulb? "That's a known problem... don't worry about it."
