Google SideWiki Brings Comments To Everyone

IvyMike I've been using this since NCSA httpd 0.4 in 1993. (221 comments)

The NCSA httpd 0.4 release in 1993 announced support for Group Annotations, which was basically this. So all of you "I had this idea four years ago" people need to get in line behind Marc Andreesen, who had this idea, dear god, 16 years ago.

It never really took off--I think even though httpd supported annotations, I don't think Mosaic itself ever really did.

Behind the 4GB Memory Limit In 32-Bit Windows

IvyMike Re:The loss is all microsoft's (756 comments)

I too use the Cisco VPN software. It's not too bad to work around if you have a spare copy of XP.

Install VirtualPC on the 64-bit OS, and then install a spare copy of 32-bit XP into a virtual machine. Install the Cisco VPN software on that. Works like a charm, and I kind of like the fact that I've got another firewall between my home machine and the company network.
