DragToDisk vs DirectCD
I have been out of touch with recent development by Roxio.
I have been using Roxio v. 5.0. I also use DirectCD. It has some problems
but is very useful.
I like Direct CD to carry data between home and office.
Now, I got Roxio CD 6. Nowhere is seen Direct CD. It seems that
Drag-to-Disk (DTD) seems to be equivalent to Direct CD. Could someone tell
me whether DTD is identical to Direct CD. I have lots of CD with data on
Direct CD. Satoshi.

I m woking in Graph algorithms. I am facing some difficulties with
very big graphs.
when I am calling the recursive function with parameters the no. of
calling recursive functions are less than without parameters before
program is terminated with segmentation fault. what is the impact of
argument in recursive function. I am passing vector as my argument.
when I am doing this using my explicit stack by iterative loop it
takes much more time than recursive function for very big graph. is
there any big difference in terms of speed for recursion and

...C++ design/over desiging : stl style vs OOPS, OOAD
I am a bit confused about so many design approaches to even the
simplest of problems. I am not able work with all of them together. It
seems I have to pick one of these.
Mainly there seems a distinct choice between the two.
1. The new generic programming way. All this stl algorithms, range
functions, transforms, generates and function objects etc. (This is
my favourite for fun).
2. The object oriented, polymorphic, way. Say the trolltech QT
framework. You really wouldn;t be approaching with style1 if you were
to design something like QT. I guess.

Do most CMUCL users use Emacs with ILISP or are they still using Hemlock.
I kind of get the impression that Emacs with ILISP is the popular choice.
I've been using SBCL with Emacs/ILISP on Debian and find it works fine for
me. But, I see Hemlock in a lot of CMUCL archive messages. Does Hemlock
come closer to the Lisp Machine type of environment then Emacs/ILISP ? I'm
going to be installing CMUCL on a Solaris OS next week and was wondering if
it would be worth looking at. I know try it and see if you like it, but

I would like to have from the date-variable "Datum" the Year an Month.
It doesn't give the correct result with Year(datum) and Month(datum).
datum = bedrag + (INTCK('day','01jan1974'd,'31dec2013'd) - 1) ;

What do you think the correct result should be?
You are counting the number of days between two dates, adding some value
to it (bedrag), subtracting 1, and then treating the resulting value as a

I've got a question:
Is it possible to make Word XP, to look for files after choosing
File/Open... menu, the way it was in Word 97? I've got many files in one
folder and in word 97 i wrote part of the file name pressed Enter and only
matching files were shown. But in Word XP I don't have that option, I must
put my search string in * * e.g. *part_of_file_name* and in word 97 you
just typed part_of_file_name, without * *. Is it possible?
Thanks in advance
...Re: Explainability vs Predicatbility--What's the difference #2

of customers in those clusters or whatever the context is). There is no

...Borland vs. Microsoft C tools?
I need to do some DOS embedded programming and I'm interested in how
the Borland and Microsoft C/C++ compilers stack up (I'd be doing
straight C). I'm talking about the Borland 4.52 and 5.02 tools, and
the Microsoft 1.52 tools. I've looked around and not found any
comparisons between them.
So, are there any notable differences between the Borland and Microsoft
products that would make one or the other more suitable for embedded

I just spoke with Netgear tech support in an effort to determine the
difference between these two gigabit adapters. The tech support person
informed me that the 302 can achieve speeds of 2000mbps over copper wire,
while the 311 go up to only 1000mbps. My network has CAT5 and/or CAT5e
cabling, and I am upgrading to gigabit switches ad adapters. Question: isn't
all network cable made of copper? What does it mean when I am told that
'copper wire' can enable higher speeds? Should I buy new wire so that I can
double my speed from 1000->2000mbps?
...id == vs is
Are the following two expressions the same?
x is y

I ported some Java code to Python, and it was using Java's idea of

tests working using the second expression above, but I'm thinking
about switching to the first.
