Sure, it can recreate an ancient villa, but can it run Crysis?

Ask Slashdot: Easy, Open Source Desktop-Sharing Software?

ftldelay ShowMyPC.com (116 comments)

For helping friends/family, I like ShowMyPC.com. Both of you go there and download/run an EXE. Once it launches, they click to generate a code that they give to you and you connect using it. It's VNC-based and nothing to install.

ftldelay Samba 4 (268 comments)

I doubt this study even figured in the cost savings they could get now by using Samba 4 instead of paying for Windows AD servers...

MS Won't Release Study Disputing Munich's Linux-Switch Savings

ftldelay Re:What did you expect? (268 comments)

Unwillingness to release it is a sure sign they've got something to hide IMO. If it's true, than what would they be afraid of? Surely it would hold up to scrutiny, right?

The Geek Art Movement

ftldelay Art from old electronics (89 comments)

I stumbled onto this artist years ago who makes people from old TVs/VCRs etc. I've purchased a few of them over the years. At one point, I mailed him a box of parts that I had un-soldered from some old junk and he sent me some free capacitor guys... http://www.obviousfront.com

Is Obtaining a Windows Refund Still Difficult?

ftldelay Enterprise Agreement (548 comments)

When we buy new computers at my work, my Dell rep said that they must come with Windows XP Pro. We corporately have an EA agreement, so on top of paying for Windows with the machine, we end up paying close to $700 for each machine's EA license (OS/Office/CALs). Why should we pay twice for Windows?
