No_47: Here's a question from a compatriot"what native application can I use in mac os 10 to do text editing with syntax highlighting (which has optionally an intergrated terminal)?I have a programming competition to go to and,.. well... they putting us on mac os 10"he's not allowed to install extra software.
Snug Tight: I hope some one can point me in the right direction. I received a PSP as a gift. I am trying to hook it up to my wireless router (linksys wrt54g) but I keep getting "A connection error has occurred. The attempt to obtain the IP address timed out." error. I have googled this, but nothing I try does any good. Thanks.
No_47: We just got some HP laptops in with Vista Business licenses.However, they also came with pre-activated XP Pro CDs, and a full set of XP drivers. Thanks HP!
FuturePastNow: And Microsoft will count them as Vista sales.
N. S. Radieaux: -- Is the Time Capsule worth the money if I'll only use it with one mac, and only use it for Time Machine?
FuturePastNow: Don't bother with a firewall, the one built into Windows is good enough. ZoneAlarm is a pain in the ass.
Snug Tight: I go back to Barnes-Jewish next Wed. and they have a unsecured network so I will try it there to see what happens.
Open_Mouth_Inert_Foot: or do ya think i should just go for the media center pc instead?
gayb: Open_Mouth_Inert_Foot: or do ya think i should just go for the media center pc instead?Yes. With a fanless video card that has DVI- or HDMI-out, you'll be able to make DVDs look and play as good it gets, plus you'll be ready to go to Blue Ray by putting in a BR optical drive whenever you get around to it (if you want to).I set up an home theatre PC last year, and suddenly our dvd player never got used again. Eventually we got rid of it, and have never looked back. And using VLC with a mouse (or rumble pad!!!) is a trillion googol times better than stumbling around with a DVD remote and laggy firmware.Found a good sound card which we coupled with a receiver to give us high definition sound. Love it.
FuturePastNow: I'd just build it myself. A 780G mobo would work well for this, HDMI out and no need for a separate video card (unless you want to play games on your HDTV).
FuturePastNow: gayb: By the way, can anyone actually recommend a good, especially quiet pc box? Regular ATX form factor, nothing small or shaped funny.The Antec Sonata is great, very quiet although to make it truly silent its fan and power supply would need to be replaced (you can buy scratch-and-dent cases without power supplies really cheap from Antec's online store).

tehhunter: I'm having a bit of a nuisance with some Java programming. There are some websites I'd like to be able to connect to to gather statistics and data with a program, but unfortunately they read my program as something like an email-crawler, or other bad program. I'm assuming its because I'm not sending any browser-specific headers along with my connection. Would anyone happen to know how to send those headers?I'm connecting by using an URL object in an URLConnection object that is read by an InputStreamReader which is utilized by a BufferedReader, but I think the only pertinent part is the URLConnection. Any ideas or advice given would be greatly appreciated, as this is a hole I've been stuck in for awhile. Thanks
AesopRock_00: anyone getting a lot of Gmail server errors lately?

FuturePastNow: The Antec Sonata is great...
Benny_Hill: The Sonata cases are very nice looking. The quietest case I own though is an Enermax Chakra. The 250mm fan moves a lot of air but is very quiet.
FuturePastNow: SD cards are better. Bigger, faster, more secure.
Snug Tight: Yes! The PSP works at hospital. Slow as shiat, but I am Farking.
TehNacho: Long story shorter though- the guide said that XML was the "wave of the future" and that all that we build would be XML soon. Is this the case or is there another language to be used now? PHP was getting popular for forum building when I finalized my site but I'm not sure if it's ever used for a regular site anymore. I know a lot of folks are designing sites mostly with Flash but I can't afford a copy and couldn't figure out how to get Swift (a flash copy) to work.Of course I'm working with Dreamweaver 2004...
Brodan: I'm actually not too bad at system repair, but this issue has me stumped. I mean really stumped. I can't use DVI mode on my computer anymore. Just VGA. How annoying.
trapped-in-CH: please ignore.
gayb: trapped-in-CH: please ignore.That's pretty much impossible. Test out this link.
