Prepping For The 360

haggar Re:Xbox360 and Slashdot (409 comments)

We saw the same thing happen with Xbox, PS2, and Gamecube. It's probably more of a valid argument to say that /. covers too much next-gen consoles in general, but I don't think they're being a blatant commercial for Microsoft.

WAIT a second there! Where and when did I say that Slashdot is "being a blatant commercial for Microsoft"? If you're going to throw mud at me, have the decency of supporting your stance.

Otherwise, I have to conclude that you have managed to missunderstand a fairly simple and short writing, and I don't know how you could do that.

The Novell Journal!

haggar haggar writes  |  more than 11 years ago

Dear friends and others,

if you are a Novell fan, let your voice be heard - in this thread! I want to know how many Slashdot readers have a Novell background (and loving it) like myself.

I worked for years with NetWare and then certified as CNI, also got a MCNE etc. I still think Novell has the top technologies in fields like directory services, netrwork management, protocol stack, file access and caching and storage tech.

What the hello is going on with Slashdot?

haggar haggar writes  |  more than 11 years ago

Is it me, or is Slashdot become a pile of hibernated molasse, i.e. did it really slow down to a crawl? It sure feels terribly slow in the past few days.

I don't see or didn't see any announcement that they would be doing changes to the infrastructure/servers and that we can expect problems.

It almost looks as if Slashdot had Slashdotted itself.

EDIT: december 24th (2002), by now most of the quirks have ended, but not all and not all of the time. I still get a timeout on Slashdot, from time to time, but very seldom. I still wish I knew what has been going on.

Crazy idea, but is it doable?

haggar haggar writes  |  more than 11 years ago

I got a Thinkpad 600X, which I truly like. It's an outstandingly well engineered computer, taking usability into consideration. I like the keyboard, the TrackPoint, the build quality and the looks.

Now, I use this computer basically only at home. It's connected to a VGA CRT display 99% of the time, and the TFT display is just in the way. So, I thought I would remove it, and use it just to cover the keyboard from time to time. Note that at the moment, the TFT is under the CRT (the ThinkPad is on a scrolling keyboard holder) gathering dust.

But I wonder if anyone has had any experience trying to remove the TFT/LCD display from their Thinkpads, possibly non-destructively?

thanks in advance. If noone did, eventually I'll figure it out myself, but it's much, much better to learn from others.

Let's start using the journal

haggar haggar writes  |  more than 11 years ago

This is my first journal entry. I have a few ideas on how to use it, but I hope to get more and more as I go.

BTW, does anyone know if the contents of a journal expire with time, or with number of entries?
