Slashdot Anniversary: Brooklyn, NY, US

veggiespam Maybe... (9 comments)

Tuesday 23 October could be difficult with late meetings that always run over. And I wanted a T-shirt too. If I do show, I'll kick all of your collective asses at Satan's Hallow.

They usually have "meet the brewmaster" nights on a Tue or Thu once a month, would this day be one of them?

Ask Slashdot: Science Sights To See?

veggiespam Re:Geeky fun in D.C. this summer (363 comments)

If thirsty and heading through NJ, there is always the semi-famous "Barcade":

I'd recommend the Barcade in Brooklyn instead - same owners, but more games, more people, and better selection of beer. A word of warning though, show up before 8 or 9pm otherwise it gets too crowded.

While you're in Brooklyn, find the Way Station Bar, they have various Sci-Fi themes along with a Tardis WC (and yes, it is bigger on the inside).

Laptops with Big RAM?

veggiespam Interim Solution: Use a USB Flash drive as Swap (172 comments)

Buy yourself a fast USB flash drive with 8GB or so of ram. Then, plug it into to a fast USB port (some Dell laptops have one set of fast ports and another for slower devices, so YMMV). Run some sort of speed test, make sure the Flash really does transfer faster than the internal HD - you never know what your motherboard will do.

If it is faster by a big enough factor, then create a new or second swap disk in Windows (search MS's KBs). You can make this your primary disk and remove the C: swap to make sure you only go to the faster swap disk. Since reboots are required, you may have to make sure the drive is in the same port the machine each time you boot up.

I kept running out of ram and used this trick with XP and Linux. It worked for me and I hope it will for you. There is rumours that Vista will have the Flash-as-Swap(tm) ability built in.
