US College Students Still Aren't All That Interested In Computer Science

Isaac-Lew Re:Computer Science is not IT and at times not cod (306 comments)

I would think that a lot of the required classes for a Network Systems Administration degree would be the same for a CS degree...why not look into what it would take to obtain a CS degree?

Shuttleworth: Apple Will Merge Mac and iPhone

Isaac-Lew Re:idiots (414 comments)

At some point, the CPU's built into phones will be powerful enough to handle most desktop applications for businesses without a noticeable performance hit. We're not quite there yet, though. Maybe in three or four more years, perhaps.

The application doesn't necessarily have to be installed locally on the device (think Google Apps or Office 365).

Microsoft Files Dispute Against Current Owner of XboxOne.com

Isaac-Lew Re:What's there to dispute? (381 comments)

I have had domains for private services such as databases(accepts request only from a list of IP's), file servers, and messaging services. I also use them for dynamic addresses.

My general rule of thumb as far as user id's: If your id is higher then mine I will give you toss it up to the member being young and ignorant about a topic when they overlook something simple. If there id is lower then mine they should be at least my age, and have a decent background on technology and its history as they lived it.

Why didn't you use subdomains (for example, database.yourdomain.com) as an alternative to purchasing & registering a full domain?

Military Dolphins Discover 1800s Torpedo

Isaac-Lew Re:Missing H-bomb (112 comments)

I would think that the detonators would have been long corroded by now, & that a bigger issue would be radiation leaking from the bomb.

Ask Slashdot: New To Linux; Which Distro?

Isaac-Lew Virtual machines (573 comments)

My recommendation would be to try several different distros in virtual machines until you come across one you like, then do a clean install (or a v2p if you're well versed in virtualization). Even after picking a primary distro, you'll probably want to keep a couple of vm's with different Linux flavors around in case you apply for a job where they use a different distro from what you're running at home.
