Map a share on a Win9x box to drive X: on an NT box.
At the NT command prompt, type
Crashes the Win9x box in 17 characters. In WinME they half-fixed it: the machine reports on a blue screen that the server service has crashed and offers to restart it. My suspicion is that the file name matches neither the pattern for the shortname or the longname, and so falls out the bottom of a test that was not designed to ever fail.
Of course that's all ancient history now, and I expect Google may actually fix the problem eventually, unlike Microsoft who ignored the bug report.
While I can't speak for "most", the limited experience I have had with IP cameras is that the stream coming off many of them is a bone-standard MJPEG stream. That is simply a stream of JPEG images, and any app that can interpret them should be fine. Microsoft has actually published a very small demo program, based on dotNet 4, that displays the output from a webcam.
Rosewill's webcam, by the way, uses a Java applet normally to show what's coming off the camera. I don't believe they use DirectX, or ActiveX, as the image output shows up fine on Firefox.
I discovered that when I tried to sleep the eight that was supposedly required, I would either wake up at 0300 and not be able to get back to sleep for an hour and a half, or I'd sleepwalk. I read a book a few decades back that suggested that by gradually decreasing your nightly sleeping time, you could find the amount of sleep you really needed (it was some decades back, sorry I can't remember the title now) and I tried what it suggested. Found that I'd wake up decently rested at 7 if I went to bed at 2.
On weekends, I wake up at 8 without the alarm clock. Weekdays, even holidays and when I forget the alarm clock, I'm up at 7. Habit.
My wife hates it.
host with someone different from where you register your domain. That way if you find the hosting isn't to your liking, you can repoint your DNS and won't get held to ransom. What I'm doing at present is registering with MyDomain and then hosting on GoDaddy, which is fine for low-volume sites.
For my Canadian sites, I register with webnames.ca, use MyDomain's DNS service, and host on whatever's cheap.
iPhone not mentioned in this summary, though it has been mentioned in the past that Siri was enough to get iPhones banned from secure locations.
As a US citizen living abroad, I am not allowed to vote, and yet I still have to pay taxes. Wasn't that a large part of why the US rebelled against England?
Exactly. There are very real benefits to this program, and if I felt that I could trust the people putting it together to keep the information private, I'd be all for it. The thing is, there is nobody I can trust with this sort of information about my children except me and their mother.
Annoyingly, I found out a couple of years ago that despite being a Canadian citizen and filing Canadian taxes every year, the US still considers me a US citizen for tax purposes, and so I have to file US taxes as well. Particularly annoyingly, one of the Canadian tax-deferral vehicles, the TFSA, is not recognized by the US, so I have this big complicated additional form to fill out for something it calls a trust. Plus I am CEO of a company I partly own (my consulting business), so I have to file financial paperwork for that as well. I hire an accountant, it's the only way to make sense of it all, and the US idiocy means that I'm out of pocket an additional $400 every year.
given that what I have would be characterized as a "piling" system... but in fact it ends up being a merge sort generally, with individual stores sorted by bubble sort before the merge.
I have a largely unique last name. If I Google firstname lastname, I get two about me on the front page, one bio from my current prime client and a thing I helped write decades ago about connecting modems to hotel telephone lines; then pages and pages about my brother the writer and my father the (late) senior scientist.
Despite the ranges specified in the survey, I'm getting 87ms ping in North America. I'm thinking this one is on Telus, though... or savvis, who I don't much trust anyway. Why the heck are they routing my packets to
