Among Servers, Apple's Mac Mini Quietly Gains Ground

p3bf Re:Overheat (367 comments)

For your Mac Mini Server running as a Desktop, try using iStat Menus with the (sensors) fan profile set to Max. Mine runs nicely around 42 degrees, a little higher under load.

Ask Slashdot: Syncing Files With Remote Server While On the Road?

p3bf Unison ! (239 comments)

I suggest you take a look at Unison File Synchronizer, which can be configured as a one way rather than two-way sync. http://www.cis.upenn.edu/~bcpierce/unison/ I've found it to be very good under poor & interrupted communication conditions.

How Can an Old-School Coder Regain His Chops?

p3bf Work backward (565 comments)

If you want to develop for the iPhone/iOS, then learn Objective C. Just figure out what you want to do, keep your focus narrow for now, and work backward from the requirements.

Happy System Administrator Appreciation Day

p3bf Re:Somebody remembered... (108 comments)

You trust eating food given to you by other people employed at your company? The IT staff at places where I've worked don't even leave their lunches in the company fridge. Perhaps they were overcautious, but all it takes is one vengeful person.

Information On Philips' "Coffee" Machine?

p3bf Interactive science slowly being eradicated (168 comments)

I loved that "coffee" machine. And all the interactive exhibits that are no longer there, everything from the huge logic gates to the parabolic microphones. At some point I think society switched from learning how to build things to just using them, and a lot of these kinds of changes reflect themselves in our "science" centres as well.

p3bf Why cut when you can all-you-can-eat? (93 comments)

Why not use http://www.alcohol-soft.com/ (or similar) and create an exact duplicate of the CD? Unless you're making one big wav file you may run into issues with cutting contiguous tracks (think crossfade with a track sep) that have silences removed for long-play albums (or is music so bad these days everyone only aggregates singles into an album?)
