Two patches needed

I have been telling Symantec til I'm blue in the face that patch KB960714 is also required to stop the temp IE reinfections.

Sun gives StarOffice ninth life

Credit where credit is due.

Folks often forget that it is SO that supports OO. Sun did not have to give code for OpenOffice from day one but they did and Sun deserves credit for their gifts to opensource. JMHO

Encryption containers

If you create an encrypted container inside another encrypted container then it is completely invisible.

Truecrypt is completely free and runs on multiple architectures. http://www.truecrypt.org/ But if you want a commercial license then go for Bestcrypt. http://www.jetico.com/

EMC CEO's ego has cost investors billions

Charles Richmond

Technology at EMC

I was a consultant at Conley Corp when we were purchased by EMC. Conley was responsible for the multipath SCSI concept that became 'PowerPath' at EMC, I know a number of the engineers at EMC and have the utmost respect for their competence and skills. None of which has much to do with the CEO/CTO/CIO/CXX levels.

Olympus µ1010 compact camera

Oly CPUs

My first digital SLR (not interchangeable lens) was the Oly 1400L. It had a Sparc processor and was running an embedded version of SunOS. As an oldtime kernel hacker I really liked that and really liked that the embedded timestamp was in UNIX epoch (secs since 8AM 01/01/1970) format. Wonder what they are using now.

The Revenge of the BlackBerry killers?

Why not add S.E. in the comparison

I wonder at the missing SE P1i comparison. I have the P990i and from reading the review, would suspect that it beats all your contenders hands down. How much better is the P1i? I do use the wifi capability quite a bit and use 'putty' for ssh/telnet connections to servers when troubleshooting them. I also have loaded PDF files, Word Docs, and Excel XLS files. I even created a spreadsheet for scheduling my engineers while sitting in a (yawn) tech briefing that was really a marketing session.
