identity of the machine you are connecting to changing.)"
this welcome message is what you get on openpower servers

chapter 10: Name Control

Yah i read that now (Thinking in C++, 2nd ed. Volume 1)

Removing in situ (in place) functions

"All definitions should be placed outside the class to keep the interface clean. If you want to optimize, use the inline keyword." What should i say ?: i agree with his POV , You can look at class and see in one shot it's functions - simple for eye


Feeling like thouse dogs who run after tail in circle.


I renew a ssl certificate and is the 10-th time i do it to get it right (organization field , unit) ,In a way i understand to identify with organization docs otherwise some phishers could buy trusted ssl certs and create some fake shops(See thouse ebay scams/spam) in another way i'm sick loosing time and even now i'm not shure


"Verifying the identity of your organization... If Starfield is unable to authenticate your organization based on the currently submitted information you will receive an e-mail notification prompting you to provide the necessary documentation via e-mail or fax."


Inlines & the compiler


"To understand when inlining is effective, it’s helpful to know what the compiler does when it encounters an inline."


almost at the end of chapter 9 ;)


"But for desktop software, or applications shared with other [DARK] forces, it makes sense for us to use Microsoft"


Yah Police story , or ms pr


I wonder if someone counts the beans spent on ms tax ...

you've now successfully flashed your new firmware your Microsoft device is now running Linux

Check this out : microsoft's router ! (done by asus in china) flashed with linux


"You've all heard of hacking the Linksys WRT54G routers.But what about some other routers. I thought I'd try my luck with a router some consider to be one of the worst on the market the Microsoft MN-700. This router runs a version of Windows CE by default but we'll see if we can change that."


And he did it

flat tyre on my mountain-bike

this morning i tried to jump over an sharp concrete edge and it worked only to hear "fsssssss" from front tyre, now need to get another one

"Casting away" constness

I'm at the end of Chapter 8 (Thinking in C++)


Funny name Castway.cpp

Boris apparently had a very traumatic experience with a 386 and a pile of slackware floppies a few years back... It scared away a lot of people for life.
Funny comment from this blog

_ Joi Ito installs Ubuntu on a ThinkPad:

"I bought a discounted IBM T42 ThinkPad and installed Ubuntu on it. I decided that I would try to get switched over to Linux (for now) before I headed off to OSCON later this week. It was amazingly easy to install and wifi, suspend and various hardware goodies seem to work. I still haven’t gotten my printer set up or my DVDs to play… Anyway, we’ll see if I’ll be able to make this trip without bringing my PowerBook."

I want 100kB/s from zapp Z010(CDMA)

We have an evdo modem but it works only at 30kB/s


when downloading from kernel.org and it should do 100kB/s


http://aisa.fi.muni.cz/~xpisar/cdma/source


"This modem is badly known due to its power bugs. But the significant bug is misreporting maximal size of USB packet. The device reports 64. That limits maximal transfer rate about 256 kbps."
