HTC EVO 4G front-facing camera test: good, but it records a mirror image

,----[ Quote ]
| Food for thought when you’re using that HTC 
| EVO 4G front-facing camera: it records 
| everything backwards. I first noticed 
| someone mention that the camera recorded 
| “backwards” but I thought they were just 
| experiencing an error because of the Qik 
| app. Then today I discovered that the 
| “problem” is indeed the 1.3 megapixel camera 
| at the front of the phone. Take a look at 
| this test video I shot using the EVO.

New WAN: 3 Sites, MPLS Cisco 1841's
Hi, new here, hoping to solicite some opinions: We have decided to move from an VPN based WAN over the Internet, to an MPLS solution from Verizon. Driving factors? Performance (high bandwidth apps, VOIP etc.) Reliability (no upstream provider who doesnt care about us). Here is the quetion: The network is comprised of three sites, a datacenter and two remote offices. Each site will be equiped with a Cisco 1841. All internet traffic will flow through the datacenter. Should we use BGP or static routing? The network will likely grow to additional sites, but not more than one / year or two at mo...

Who said it 3
Another round of "who said it": We control the specifications for creating Linux software. We work with vendors, software developers and the open source community on projects that help define standards that balance consistency and innovation. We use a rapid test-and-deployment model, online collaboration tools, and a framework for writing specifications and developing tests [that results in a stable new release every two or three months]. It achieves consistency and works very well. No fair Googling! Any guesses? -- I know how a jam jar feels... ...

Re: Another Excel Libname Question #3
