Submission + - Vistaprint runs $10,000 programmer challenge

maiden_taiwan writes: Tech company Vistaprint (my employer) is running a programming contest with a $10,000 (US) prize. The challenge? Creatively compute a shipping box that best holds a set of products. Deadline is end of October. The contest is meant as a fun puzzle (vs. an enterprise-level solution).

Submission + - Simple versioning share drive for Windows? 1

maiden_taiwan writes: My company's documents are stored on a big Windows share drive. We'd like to install a simple versioning system to track document history and roll back to previous versions when needed. Unfortunately, our needs are too simple for the marketplace, which pushes Documentum, SharePoint, and other massive, expensive systems that want to "be in charge" and change everybody's work habits. All we want is a simple Windows share drive (CIFS, not WebDAV, which rules out Subversion with autoversioning) that automatically versions documents when saved or on request, scales internationally to thousands of users, and doesn't cost half a million dollars. Is there really nothing out there for Windows? What does your company use?
