How good is MacBook?
I am considering buying a laptop. I come from a windows background. I
have never used mac computers before. I heard that I can install
Windows and Linux in MacBook. Is that true?
I need a laptop for graphics and web design (Photoshop, dreamweaver,
flash) and programming (especially PHP). Will Macbook be able to
support windows versions of all the above?
Am I better off buying a macbook or a PC? What is so special about

I'm new in FPGA field, so i have a problem....
I need a low cost FPGA able to drive a sensor with
5 LVDS DDR data sensor->FPGA
1 LVDS Clock at 300MHz sensor->FPGA
1 LVDS Clock at 300Mhz FPGA->sensor
in sensor evaluation board, a Virtex5 XC5VLX50T-1FFG1136C is used. I
need a low cost fpga, so i thought about Spartan6 family (for example
XC6SLX150T-3FGG676C). What do you think? Is it possible to obtain a
300MHz clock output from a differential IO? Any suggestion?
Thanks in advance

...Efficiently splitting strings -- substring class?
Is there any standard practice for efficiently
splitting strings into tokens (and then further
processing those tokens)?
Specifically, I have a function that takes a
std::string, splits it into white-space-separated
(for example) tokens that it then returns in a
std::vector<std::string>. This obviously entails
some unnecessary copying and vector manipulations,
but is convenient, and was quick for prototyping.
A subset of these tokens are processed further, e.g.,
converted to numbers, checked for exact textual matches,
looked up as textual keys in associati...RE: [Maybe Spam] Re: Informix WGE with IBM DB2 Gold Bundle

I have an old 735/99 running on HP-UX 11.0. I know it's
officially not supported, but with an old enough 11.0
installation and (supposedly) staying away from SCSI
patches it runs quite fine. Now I want to apply the latest
11.0 Quality Pack patch bundle to keep it all a bit up to
data again. But which patches of the bundle do I have to
skip in order not to screw up. Is it only the 'SCSI IO
subsystem cumulative patch', or are there more that I
should avoid? Trial and error is no option for me as I do
remote administration. The machine is physically far away

...wxMac: Loading a wx-based bundle from a wx app: how to pass the wx globals over?
Two years ago I posted about how I needed to load a wx-based bundle
from a regular app. I got that to work fine, but now I have a
different problem. I have a wx-based app and I need to load a wx-based
bundle. The problem is that I don't know how to pass the global wx
variables created by the app over to the bundle.
The reason for this setup is this: there's this massive app that
needs to load pieces from a bundle to get something done. Then, we're
building a smaller standalone app which also uses the same bundle.
Both main apps are wx-based and the bundle is ...Efficient insertion in a std::multimap

down a city block and shot bad guys. I thought the name of this final game
