Are Code Reviews Worth It?

XMyth Re:Are they worth it? (345 comments)

That's twice you've mentioned being paid for masturbating.

Just an observation.

Bluetooth Versus Wireless Mice

XMyth Re:VX Nano (519 comments)

It has a middle button. It's behind the scroll wheel. Clicking the scroll wheel changes the gear behavior so they couldn't make that the middle button like normal. But there is a functioning middle button on this mouse.

You just have to tell the logitech software to use it as such is all.

The mouse is awesome.

Bluetooth Versus Wireless Mice

XMyth Re:VX Nano (519 comments)

I've got a VX Nano for work and a v550 for home. I prefer the nano because of the back/forward buttons...other than that, these mice are practically identical (which is to say AWESOME).

I'll never buy another mouse without a MicroGear scroll wheel again.

Head First Rails

XMyth Re:Rails? (57 comments)

Can you provide a reference for that? I thought the two projects were merging, not that Rails would just "use Merb's code base".

Thanks

No, but apparently you are the only person who doesn't believe in improving things.

What Features Should Be Included With iPhone 3.0?

XMyth Re:Multitasking (606 comments)

They will probably be adding background notifications so that IM apps and the like can send notifications to your phone while they're closed. This is probably ideal for that type of operation anyways.

There are definitely other things that should be able to run in the background though (Pandora for one).

Also, you can already change the current song (if you're playing it through the iPod) without closing an app.

In your settings, assign double Home to Music Controls. Then while in another app, double tap home and you'll get a pop-up with prev, play/pause, and next.

Lastly, if your phone is jailbroken, you should check out iRealQuickSMS for replying to text messages while you're using another app. Really great utility. It is ~$5, but definitely worth it to me and I don't even text very often.

XMyth Re:huh? (606 comments)

You do know that you can use a shared iTunes account on multiple phones and you won't have to purchase apps twice, right?

What Features Should Be Included With iPhone 3.0?

XMyth Re:Working Exchange support (606 comments)

Exchange support seems to work great if your exchange server is setup to support it. Everyone I know who has an iPhone plus Exchange (including myself) never complains about it except for one friend who can't sync at all....but it's a server configuration issue for his company...not an iPhone issue.

The Best Gaming PC Money Can Buy

XMyth Re:GPU: 2x2GB 4870 = No 32 bit XP? (360 comments)

I'm curious why you think that "for software which supports 64bits it should be faster than it's 32bit equivalent" ?

How to Search Today's Usenet For Programming Information?

XMyth Re:Unfortunately... (230 comments)

There is of course StackOverflow as well. After not too long, it should surpass Expert Sex Change as the best source for programming information.
