It's claim to fame was that Myst used Strata 3D for the scenes. It had a good begining, on its way to become a known name like Maya is now. Then in about 1996 their new multiplatform version became an unmangeable mess with them trying to add too many features at once. Their bank forced them to release it uncomplete and they quickly got a reputaion for releasing buggy crap. Suprisingly they are still around, but after some research I found their company is registered to a humble residential home. The company may be only be a side project for its founder now.
Smartphone and tablets means greater Wi-Fi and VPN needs. We have replaced our managed wireless system twice in the last 4 years, and the last one was exponentially more expensive than the previous. Good thing devices are going to 5ghz, because we have 2.4 ghz maxed out, meaning adding more access points will not add anymore capacity for 2.4 Ghz devices. We now have 8 times the access points that we did 4 years ago.We probably are not typical though, we have about 300 employees in a smaller city with mostly 2G cell service, Verizon has spotty 3G service here, so everyone uses the Wi-Fi.
I always buy Class 6 SD cards, why because there slightly cheaper then Class 10 nearly always a smiler or identical card when from the same brand. Do I sound illogical? Study the specification, Class 10 has a less rigorous testing metric, they don't do any random access tests on Class 10 cards. So far I've had the best performance with Sanddisk Ultra class 6 cards. I admit I do push the random access on some of my uses, like using it has the system drive for a Nook Color, booting UBCD4win on a ISOSTICK. and as a system drive for a couple ARM Developer boards.
Face it all modern smartphones with their large glass screens are fragile. Older iPhones with their steel cases and smaller screens can take a little more abuse, but nothing like a rugged dumb phone. It not rocket science, you have to invest in a decent case and screen protector.
I have a Nexus 4, I envy nobody. I have a $30 a month plan and Wi-Fi almost everywhere I go, so lack of LTE is non-issue for me. I'm completely pleased with this phone, no disappointments.
Sorry about that, it was the best packaging I could find at the moment and I was a little peeved that the drive auctioned for so little.
I got the best plan 1 year ago. 1500 min or text, 30 MB Yes that is Megabytes, enough to receive email when away from wifi. And the important part I can put the SIM in any GSM phone. Even with tax only $32 a month
Sound like Microsoft will like this news as Windows 8's interface makes multitasking difficult.
You think 1930s Germany and Italy working together was bad. This totally freaks me out.
I think you can only learn by doing. I think I can empathise with struggling to learn programming. I only took the beginning programming class in collage only 4 times. Then I got a perfect score last time I took it, because I found an aid to help me get started coding. I very grateful for Nick Parlante, his lectures suck for beginners, but he made the free website codingbat.com were you can interactively get started on guided coding exercises. He only has it for Java and Python. I would recommend learning Python before other languages. Then I recommend to find a simple project that is interesting to you and keep going until you can figure out how to finish it.
Better late then never, I guess. They were only petitioned 6 years ago to do this.
Knowing other ways to communicate or approach things is very useful. My boss once questioned my interest in Linux was hindering my abilities in Windows. I pointed out that I was often figured out different approaches to solve a problem when my coworkers got stuck because of my knowledge of Linux. He didn't question my interest in Linux again. I'm sure diversity in doing things instead of single mindedness is nearly always valuable.
Opps, someone didn't do their home work. Sure there were not many USB devices until 98 and 99, but the USB wiki page says 1994. I remember buying my first motherboard with USB in 96.

I haven't heard about that ISP for long time, no they are building a Data Center! It's amazing some of the things the things I don't hear about.
