Anyone Besides Zune Owners With New Year's Crashes?

abaddononion Re:Time Mathematics and Microsoft (480 comments)

Unless things have changed, Im pretty certain Microsoft doesnt use posix or "unix" time...

Windows NT time is specified as the number of 100 nanosecond intervals since January 1, 1601. UNIX time is specified as the number of seconds since January 1, 1970. There are 134,774 days (or 11,644,473,600 seconds) between these dates.

Maybe things have changed since NT... but Id have my doubts.

Not that that changes your point. It doesnt. Just sayin.

Firefox Download Day To Start At 1 p.m. EST

abaddononion Re:I hate the awesome bar (1080 comments)

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Browser.urlbar.matchBehavior

If you set the value of this to "2", you will get what you're looking for. Sort of... This will cause Firefox's "awesome" bar to match "LIKE 'foo%'". However, it will still look at page titles, not strictly URL. Still, this is the closest Ive been able to come to replicating old behavior.

His primary resource was Apple's iTunes service, and he even invests in a Mac mini to gain better control over the content he's watching. From the article: "What happened after that was a bit surprising... Suddenly, our family was not sitting together in the living room watching television — except for the occasional DVD movie — but instead scattered around the house. My wife and I watched our shows on our office computers, and our kids watched theirs on a laptop in the kitchen. Within a few days, the diaspora driven by digital content already made the house seem, well, less homey.""
