Unless you're surrounded by a monopoly, or other 'choices' that are vastly substandard. Such as 56k or very-slow adsl, versus high-speed, low-latency cable. 'Choices' -- I'd have to move to get another choice. Hogwash to that point, I say.
Sorry..I clicked "submit" instead of "preview." I had to clarify this a little bit because there was some redundancy . Also, "HTML Formatting" was selected instead of Plain old text. I replied again below which is more readable. =)
This is database architecture and IS used.
It works like this: You tier where your data is stored based on how often it is read.
Depending on your database load, you could use a tier similar to..
1+ reads per second
1+ reads per day
1+ reads per month
1+ reads per 6 months
1+ reads per year (this is your archive/old data level)
Based on your needs, you make data more available; data that isn't used is eventually shelved further back. Eventually unused data migrates toward 'old data' and takes increasingly more time/energy to read, but is still available when needed. Whereas your frequently accessed data is available immediately.
I've posted on the forums a total of maybe 3 times...ever.
If you don't want to show your real name, then just don't use the forums. You can get support in-game or over the phone.
And parents that want to protect their children: Disable realid (forum) access in the parental controls panel.
It depends. I had an atheros card with madwifi and I spawned multiple virtual devices, and I could connect to multiple networks at a time. As well as connect to a network and host an AP at the same time. Was pretty easy. (on Debian)
Indeed. I am actually excited about their research in managed operating systems. Which I think will come before 128bit. That's for sure.
But damn, Linq to everything else fucking rocks faces, and anyone who says otherwise seriously needs to buy a linq book and actually use the shit. Linq to XML/collections
Yeah, linq is handy with Entities, but you run into a whole messuh problems if you don't be careful with it. (And people who don't understand relational databases should stay away from it.)
At least, that is my opinion...but don't take it too seriously
I beat it once by saving them, then out of curiosity I went in and "extracted the worm" from them (AKA KILLED THEM)
I may be desensitized, I couldn't kill them the first time around...but the second time was easy ; )
