Message is gone, just like SCOX

Yep! It's a goner!

On the other hand, that's most intelligent thing Hunsaker has mumbled yet! Now I see why he makes the big bucks, I mean USED to make the big bucks.

Too many typos, Are you guys journalists?

It appears you're attempting to use SSC as an acronym for Shelby Super Cars. If so, you've incorrectly used SCC (which means...?) instead of SSC. Is there an editor there? Is he asleep? Proof read your work!

Microsoft slings Windows Home Server in OEM bargain bin

me
Thumb Up

Works for me

Have WHS for over 1 year now and no troubles with it. This is the best M$ product I have used so far (not saying much, considering its company). Does all it is suppose to do and does it well. I have used the restore capability at least 4 times and it worked 100% each time. I currently have 4.5TB of storage in it, mostly loaded with videos (mpeg rips of dvds) as well as music and photos, all setup on duplicated folders. I just bought an IstarHD to connect between the server and the HDTV. It's call V-O-D, video on demand.

As much as I despise M$ crapware, this is an exception.

Is it 64 bit???

Will it be 64 bit only? Will it include 32 bit as well? Will there be really good driver and software app support for 64 bit??

Or are we all gonna stay in the past and forget about progress?

The pope is not the anti-christ! He is, however, an excellent candidate for the false prophet, ie, the #2 spot.

Bluetooth finally reaches ten (years, not users)

me
Paris Hilton

I remember when...

bluetooth first came out. USB was also fairly new. I was tasked with investigating USB as a replacement for the soon to be obsolete RS232, used on engine control modules. After I completed the USB research, I was asked to look at bluetooth. Boy, I thought USB was a lot of spec to cover at some 300+ pages, but when I saw the bluetooth spec at just over 1000 pages, whew! I attempted to read it, but the caffeine just wasn't enough. I told my boss I wasn't gonna do amphetamines to get thru the spec.

Paris-cause she wants to know how you can get blue teeth!

I like torture

I just love to reinstall WHS and the accompanying 600GB of data. Hey, at least with WHS, I HAVE to have a "backup of the backup", thereby doubling the HW cost of my data storage. But no problem, I have it backed up.

Paris-cause I like torture too!

Windows XP SP3 blame game begins

me
Paris Hilton

will it work on AMD after slipstream?

I slipstreamed SP3 into WinXP by downloading the .exe file. I then installed WinXP-SP3 using VMware 5.5. Ran fine. I'm wondering if it will work if installed as the real OS (no vm). (I have an AMD X4)

Paris-cause anything with "service" in it's title has to be sexy!

I still play Doom I/II, Heretic and Hexen (all derivatives of the Doom engine). It plays very well under Win XP using Zdoom, including networking! DOS LIVES! Viva DOS! (I didn't say that, did I?)

Paris, cause it's so hard to choose.

Is it this bad in jolly ol' england? Seems likes you brits always play "follow the leader". Well, Bush is no leader! Don't follow him! I wonder anymore, seems like Russia may be more of a free country than the current USA. Well, I have to go now, the FBI/DHS/CIA/NSA is here to take me away for treason.

Boffins: Antimatter comes from black holes, neutron stars

me
Stop

ignore it

"We expected something unexpected, but we did not expect this" This is redundant: "did not expect this" implies, actually demands, that "this" is unexpected. But the statement opened with "we expected something unexpected". So the statement reduces to "We expected something unexpected, but this is unexpected"! So I guess they got what they expected?

Toshiba pitches HD DVD players as... DVD machines

me
Happy

I have the Toshiba HD-XA2

It "upscales" beautifully! My SD DVD's are indistinguishable from their HD counterparts. I can rent SD DVDs from Netflix and watch a "flawless" movie on my DLP HDTV. (Acronyms, anyone?) Yes, I bought early and will probably regret it. But I don't look back with any regrets, because I have near HD-DVD quality with all my old DVDs. So it's not a total loss.

I suspect that by the time BD becomes the clear winner and begins to get accepted in the market and broadly seen as the replacement to DVD, it won't matter anymore. Look for subscription based internet distribution of movies like Netflix and Apple (surely others, too) are working on right now. Meanwhile, I'll just keep watching my "near HD-DVD" quality SD DVDs.
