What's the big deal about 32Gbs FC when infiniband is already operating at 100Gbs (EDR)?
Incidents like this make me long for them to be forced to open up their network to Virtual Network Operators. I do not want to switch to DSL or 3G because I find cable to be superior for high data rates and reliability, but since Telewest/Blueyonder was amalgamated into Virgin Media quality has gone downhill.
Is it possible to get them without hard disks and boot them using PXE?
I'm pretty sure your agreement with the site prevents you from sharing your credentials. If the company expects you to break that agreement, then they should not be surprised if you break your agreement with them (i.e. your contract of employment).
If the PDQs had bluetooth they could connect using a mobile phone in an emergency. An alternative for the business is an FCT (fixed cellular terminal) that would provide an FXS port to which they can connect the PDQ.
Cisco but not Samsung
I have had a V+ HD box installed in the last couple of months, and it is a Samsung not a Cisco box, so it won't be upgradable to Tivo. Hopefully they will offer a replacement free of charge.
A novel idea
Here is a novel idea - charge customers based upon the actual speed they get, so that those with slower access do not end up subsidising those with faster access. E.g. if it is £16 for "Up to 16mbs" and you actually get 1mbs, then you should only pay £1.
I now have 5 versions of the .Net Framework installed - 2.0 SP2, 3.0 SP2, 3.5 SP1, 4 Client Profile, 4 Extended. This is getting silly!
Give me folders any day. Unless you configure it otherwise, when download mail via imap, you get a new copy of the same message for every label applied to it, as well as a copy from the "All Mail" folder (and "Inbox" until the mail is archived).
That would be rather contrary to their claim in a recent newspaper advertisement - "infinitely reliable".
It would help if broadband access was charged fairly. For example, the Market Bosworth exchange only supports 576kbs. Given that Pipex charge £14.50 per month (plus vat) for "up to 8Mbs", it only seems far that someone on that exchange should pay £1 per month as they can only get 1/16 of the advertised speed.
I am an opponent of DRM in consumer hardware. In this case it appears to be working exactly as designed. The cinema was trying to make easy money by screening more copies than it was entitled to. It should have paid for the extra keys it needed.
CoreIX is still claiming on their website "The Coreix Premium Network has obtained 100% Network uptime over the last 4+ years." That does not tally up with their status page at http://status.coreix.net/ - which was pretty useless when they were down. If you have a status page you should make sure it is run on an entirely separate infrastructure and domain.
You can just as easily broadcast MPEG-4 with DVB-T. Denmark is doing exactly thatl since the big switch on November 1, most channels now use H.264/AAC, including DR HD, so you don't need a new box to get high definition on DTV (at least not until 2012 when Denmark will switch to DVB-T2).
At the start of this month Denmark begin broadcasting DR HD nationwide with the existing DVB-T standard. The signal is not due to change to DVB-T2 until 2012. However, to receive the HD channel you still need a tv or box capable of decoding MPEG-4 (H.264/AAC). Some of the older ones do not have this capability.
I don't like built-in receivers anyway; much rather have a separate unit - even better if it runs open source software so it's easy to add new features.
Sorry Reg, this does not allow someone to take over a blog, it merely allows the administrator password to be reset, which is just an annoyance. To take over the blog the attacker would also have to have control of the email account to which the password reset mail is sent.
If Microsoft is seriously committed to open source, this would seem like the perfect project to demonstrate its commitment with.
I don't get it. Servers usually have a NIC and HBA each because they tend to max them out. If you start sharing all your servers with just a couple of each, then performance is going to drop drastically, surely? Even if you attach the storage directly to the fabric, you have a lot more speed, and you are going to hit the NIC limitation even faster.

Docsis 3 and IPv6
Presumably the new rollout is based upon the new Docsis 3 standard of which IPv6 is a component. Hopefully this will mean that customers will be able to get a native v6 connection in the near future without resorting to 6to4, Teredo or a tunnel.
18Gb/s is pathetic by today's standards. Even 5 years ago it was possible to tx/rx at up to 32x 40Gb/s (1,280Gb/s) on a single pair with dwdm.
IceCat > IceWeasal
There are many suggestions that Ubuntu should switch to Iceweasel. If they truly want free software, they ought to use the GNU derivative, Icecat. Unlike Firefox and IceWeasel, it contains only free software, as well some privacy enhancements.
I have it on good authority that Level3 has been calling around Akamai customers offering hosting for 1/10 of what they are currently paying. I don't for one moment believe that Akamai cannot provide H.264 services.
7TB in 2U still does not compare to the 72TB you can get in 4U if you load up a Sun X4500 with the Seagate 1.5TB monsters! Even with "only" 1TB disks, you can still get a health 48TB. I wish more vendors would take the top-loading approach as it offers a much greater density than front-loading.
