Ooh, it finally just came to me -- XIRCOM Parallel-to-Ethernet adapter. Forgot about those puppies... they were badass back in the day.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
LapLink over parallel.
Or a PCMCIA Ethernet card.
Or a PCMCIA Compact Flash reader.
So many ways
Used IT gear has been sold professionally for as long as there's been IT gear.
This is just a crappy ad for another Johnny-come-lately vendor.
That makes an AirPort Extreme seem like a bargain
(I do own one though!)
Some of the most successful IT shops I've ever worked in have been 'build' vs. 'buy' shops. They get tremendous cost advantage from having internally-developed tools that exactly meet the needs of their business.
Done right, it works very, very well.
Depends on your definition of proximity.
RF fingerprinting requires the phone to be somewhere cellular coverage is available.
Not too many places outside Antarctica (and not even there) where that's not the case.
Cell phones have been identifiable by RF fingerprinting for many, many years.
Was a common anti-fraud technique in the analog cellular days.
Replying to myself, but just to prove the theory
Forget maintaining / rolling your own. Doesn't make ANY sense, especially when this thing got dropped in your lap.
Salesforce.com for CRM.
Workday for ERP.
Sleep at night. Priceless.
You are so wrong it isn't even funny.
We're running app stacks at full line rate on 40GbE using today's hardware. A dual-socket sandy bridge server (I.e. HP DL380) has no problem driving that kind of bandwidth. Look up Intel DPDK or 6Windgate if you want to learn a thing or two.
It's real, it works, and we're getting ready to start 100GbE testing.
None of this would be necessary if you just used HP-UX!
The Moto Droid is not even 3 years old yet
The iPhone 3GS is older (coming up on 3 1/2 years) and is still very much usable. In fact, it even supports the latest release of the operating system.
But Apple's the evil, money-grubbing one, right?
Our friends at Unicomp also have a Mac version of their keyboard - the Spacesaver M. Freakin' awesome.... feels like '92 all over again.
This post was brought to you by the Unicomp Spacesaver M.
Does it come with Reference USB Keys?
Sadly, I don't think anyone else reading slashdot was alive during the Micro-Channel era, let alone gets the joke
It's absolutely accepted - and encouraged - to use our company-issued vehicles for personal use, including vacations.
Not all policies are completely draconian.
Now, having said that, modifying the vehicle (i.e. adding a remote starter, changing the radio, installing NOx) is strictly forbidden.
The person who posted this "question" really just needs to buy his own laptop. A MacBook Air would work well for travel. Even at home, I do the same -- work on one machine, personal on the other. Point, set, match.
