Upscale vrs HD-DVD
I wonder if it will upscale regular DVD's as well as my HD-DVD player (which I got for nothing when Toshiba dumped the format - cheaper than a decent DVD player)?

"We might conceive of a mini-QuickSilver product being built with two SVCs, to protect against a single SVC failure."
So the redundancy already built into the SVC node pair isn't enough? It's pretty tough to kill a node pair, unless you REALLY try, or let the BOFH get involved...
Regarding the last comment, the ESX provides a common set of drivers so each OS/application doesn't need to worry about them. And it handles the multitasking, so the applicatoin/OS doesn't have to.
Geez - sounds like the original reason Microsoft pitched Windows to begin with. Talk about taking a page from Microsoft's playbook!
So sitting on the ground at LaGuardia for an extra 2 hours because there are too many planes around isn't enough, now I can sit there because the drones need to come in for fuel?
"Uh, we're sorry folks, but we'll be delayed another hour or so, as the runway is in use to land the drones. No, not a Northwest flight (sorry - old joke), but the ones to protect you and make sure your flight isn't interrupted."
If you can find the capacity of LTO4 tapes, why can't you find the performance spec? I often see LTO4 drives drop out of streaming mode because the disk can't feed the data fast enough. And retrieving a single object from tape is pretty fast as well - it's when you have multiple requests to the same piece of media that things get ugly. As stated, it's archive data, instant access is assumed to be unnecessary, and heavy access should also be assumed to be a non-issue. Otherwise, why are you archiving it???
I just wish the LTO specs were to read all previous generations, rather than just 2 back. No reason I can think of not to have this, and it would make the generation jump a lot easier.
Without a dose of BOFH? Seriously - how many of us out there actually look forward to Friday, not as the last day of the week (as it's therefore the day the most stuff gets dumped onto us, at the last minute, by people who for some reason waited until Friday to realize...), but because we get a dosage of BOFH. By Friday morning, I'm so ready for the weekend it's scary, but I can get up, get out of bed, get ready for work, all because of the BOFH and his PFY.
...is that they're selling some pretty high end kit (well, for 2005 at least). For Joe Average home user to do email/internet, have the kids do some homework, maybe play a few games, a HP xw9300 Workstation is, frankly, overkill. $94.99 for 52 weeks = $4939.38 - I bet HP would love to sell a few for that!
Since when is it illegal to record a TV show? Would then owning a VCR be illegal? Is there a list of DVD recorder owners out there, with someone sneaking into their homes nightly to see what they recorded???
If DVR's are illegal as well, I'll take Time Warner down with me!
So now I should be able to get HD-DVD's for less than regular DVD's, see TONS of them in the used disc stores, wait for BR to come down in price to something reasonable (will it with no competition???), then get a BR player, get the High-Def stuff on it, and have the Toshiba for the regular DVD upscaling.
Oh, and the BR drive will probably be in a PS3 - I can try to use the death of HD-DVD as an excuse to "need" the PS3 to my wife!
There's a LOT of code "owned" by M$ in OS/2. I know the HPFS386 filesystem, shipped with the OS/2 Server versions, was almost exclusively theirs, so it didn't come with the "regular" versions.
I can remember running multiple Win3.1 apps, each in their own Windows shell, having one crash (as they often did), and NOT bring down the others. "A better Windows than Windows" was right on!
