I love my 6180DN at home. I would say I'd upgrade to the 6280DN when the 6180DN goes to the big printer heaver in the sky, but it'll probably be replaced with a newer model (6380?) long before the 6180 dies :).
Sure, it's not an $800 Epson photo printer, but for anything but photo work, the printer ROCKS and the printouts on thick cardstock look beautiful.
He writes a piece of public domain software, doesn't charge for the software, doesn't offer commercial support directly, etc. He makes *NOTHING* off of the software, yet he's offering $1000 of his own personal money, and that isn't enough for you? How many other FOSS projects do you know of that offer a similar award? Go away, troll.
Wake me up when Creative finally brings back A3D 3.0 in one of their cards...
"No, AC, Mac OS X isn't Linux. Mac OS X is fully certified BSD Unix - just like Solaris."
Actually, while Darwin & Solaris are both certified "UNIX"'s, Solaris hasn't been based on BSD since the old SunOS 4.x days. Solaris (eg, SunOS 5.x) is SysV-based.

None of it? Believe it or not, we can still work on alternative energy while we drill for oil. Not all of us have problems multi-tasking. Hell even Paris gets it!
@ Mike Richards
It doesn't matter how long it takes to get the oil or how much comes out in the end. The point is that banning drilling hurts us more than not banning it, PERIOD. Why is this such a hard concept?
&$#@ you, Creative!
I quit buying Creative products after they sued Aureal into bankruptcy, bought them, and then killed off their *MUCH BETTER* technology (eg, A3D 3.0).
XP x64 uses the Windows 2003 kernel. So SP2 for x64 is already "newer" than SP2 for "regular" XP. In other words, you're not missing out.
I haven't heard of any plans for a SP3 for 2003, but I'm not exactly in the know.
"How come the HD-DVD players (made by only one company, no less) are cheaper? Seriously - if blu-ray is really the winner, and multiple companies are making the players, then why are they so much more expensive? Kinda backwards - the single source item is cheaper (yes, Toshiba is probably losing their shirts on each player...) than the one we have a choice on?" -AC
The cheapo Toshiba player doesn't even have full 1080p support! By the time you buy the next model up that DOES have it, you're at the same price w/ a BluRay player that already does much more.
Buying a player that's basically an upcoverting DVD player w/ a HD sticker on it doesn't make it better :)
"The only way to put a tap/split on a fiber cable is to cut it...... U.S.A. have submarine(s) equipped for this type of mission." - AC
I would hope that somebody would notice the fiber going from up to down (when it was cut), to up (when it was tapped), to down again (when they were done). To see this happen on 3 links in that time frame would surely ring some alarms.
Put the tin foil down and slowly back away from the PC.
@ Dana W
Hang on. You're accusing El Reg of being biased for quoting a 3rd party?
They gave you the numbers. Does your (new) math add up? Can you make sense of it all? If you're so biased, what do you make of the whole thing?
Uh, no? If this was for "generally accepted accounting principles for revenue recognition", then why isn't THIS update $1.99, or even $1? $20 is a little high to be claiming "It's just because of SOX!".
"Rotman is a senior PHP engineer at Zend Technologies, the Cupertino, California-based creator and commercial maintainer of PHP."
Zend is NOT the creator of PHP. They simply make the Zend Script Engine that PHP 4 & 5 run on top of.
@Anon Kaspersky Basher
I'm not sure if you:
1) Are a Kaspersky competitor
2) Used a tampered BitTorrent copy
3) Used a really bad beta
But I've NEVER seen Kaspersky do what you say. In fact, I can safely say that on the machines I've used it on, I've never seen a false positive.
The fact that you posted anonymously points to the first option...
