OT slightly: Non standard size PDF with Acrobat Distiller
I need a sheet that is atleast 21" in any direction but I can't figure out
how to make Acrobat Distiller do this. I am printing a decal that we are
going to have made at Kinko's for prototype. Anyway I would prefer to give
them a 1 to 1 PDF of it. Unfortunately it is in AutoCAD and won't print too
well from SW.
Click on "settings/job-options" select the advanced tab
and change the deault page size

db_cache_size = 3600M
db_cache_size = 600M
db_8k_cache_size = 3000M
Will there be a difference in performance in the above cases?
On what basis, the DBA has to decide whether to use Standard 4K block
size or to have non-standard block sizes also for the Database?

What's your favorite app that didn't come with your distribution?
I'm curious about the range of software out there and want to know
what other people like.
I'll go first: feh, an image viewer from http://www.linuxbrit.co.uk/feh/
Things I really like about feh that I haven't seen in other image viewers:
it has both the ability to load images from http:// urls and the ability
to reload after a delay. This allows me to view images I see linked to in
usenet without needing to fire up my browser. And the delay reload is
handy for webcams and related updating images. In the 20...OT: Standard mail app
can anyone tell me how to find out which is the standard mail programm
and how to change it. I think it is stored anywhere in the registry.
Sorry.. I assume this is a non VO question.
Mostly the apps will ask if you want them to be but the easiest way is to
look up file associations and see what app opens .eml files.You can also do
this with APIs . Look up SHGetFileInfo() in the online help.

Well, one of the trolls mentioned text-based MUDS, and acted like that
was a bad thing :)
Is a LPMud, that has been around since the early 90's, probably a bit
longer than linux, and has been a collaborative coding effort for more
than a decade.
Players can graduate to become Wizards, and then code their own
areas/equipment. It keeps on growing, but with the emergence of a lot of
the Graphical MMORPG's, it has started to wane, lots of the old players
are coming back, but we could use some fresh blood.
So anyone who still plays MUDS (they sell Zmu...OT - OT - OT

I am attempting to build an application that can run with just a command
line interface, but also display a gui when an X Server is available.
However, even when I leave OnInit completely empty I still get an error
message that gtk can not open the display. Is there anyway to start up
without trying to contact the display?
The point fot this is, that the wxWidgets system runs at this time. I
would suggest this:

...Reading non-standard variable sizes
I'm attempting to read values from a binary file with some strange variable formats. Specifically, I have a field of data that uses 9 bytes. No IDL data format has 9 bytes. I can do the following:
data = bytarr(9)
ReadU, lun, data
And lun will be ready to read the next variable, but how do I convert the 9 byte variable into a single 8-byte double number?
Unfortunately, I can't change the format of this data because its a standard. Thanks for your interest.

I want to use a non-standard paper size with the memoir class (24cm x
16.5cm). I used the paper size commands provided by memoir (short
example included below). I use pdflatex.
I have two problems:
1) It appears the paper size is not correctly set in the pdf document,
that is, the PDF viewer show Letter (or A4) pages. The text, however, is
of the correct size (resulting in huge lower and right margins).
2) The width of the header and footer appears to be too small. The rule
below the header stops about 4 characters to the left of the right
margin, and also the page number is ...How to make modal dialog non-modal or how to make non-modal dialog modal from code

Your class doesn't need to be POD to use sizeof.
The only limitations on what you can pass to sizeof are as follows fro
