Programmers, Programmers, Programmers, ...
As Steve Balmer correctly stated, while making his monkey dance, it is
applications and hence programmers that make a platform. The fact though is
that if you want to do professional programming, then Linux is the platform
for you. I know that this statement will get the heckels up on a lot of
trolls in C.O.L.A, but I have a recent experience that proves this.
I am currently working for a Windows only house producing a system that

...The Right Way to Design a Programme
Hello. I'm starting university this year but as a summer project, I've
decided to develop quite a big system in Common Lisp. I'm using Common
Lisp Object System for all my OO needs. I've realised that if I try to
programme it without any previous planning, then I cannot keep
consistency. I want to ask of a few methods in engineering the system
to be programmed. I heard the Dijkstra said that one should not use
visual methods. I am asking this before starting university because I
am sure that they'll try to get me to use UML. What are _your_
preferred methods of design? Than...Right time at the right place.

If you want to discuss how IPC and pipes are implemented in the

...Z1300 Update: InkStop Does Right, but Are They Right?
Well, I hauled the nonfunctioning Lexmark 34/35 "compatibles" back to
InkStop this afternoon. Guess Kid Behind the Counter from Saturday
must be back in school. His BIg Sister, who sold me the original
pair, was back. Only today she was accompanied by Gramps, who I guess
runs the place. Both of them repeated Kid's suggestion that I trade
in their cartridges for a pair of OEMs, but to their credit and their
company's, they didn't hesitate to refund my money when I told them
I'd already bought OEMs elsewhere.
Anyway, Gramps says they get around 4 per cent ...The right criticisms for the right OS (and/or its users)
I'm sure everyone will agree that Windows 7 flat-out rocks. No?
Well, get a life, then. But yeah, Vista was the Windows Me of NT-
based OSes, and now they're quickly putting XP out to pasture, when
it's still the most widely used OS, and those are fair criticisms of
(Then again, in Vista's case, they would have at some point had to
release it - and it never would've gotten good enough until after it
was released. That's unfortunately part of the game they were
playing, but it was worth it to get past the initial rewrite, and
achieve Win7. The NT/2000/XP codebase was indeed too burdened to
build on, not that that implies anything about XP or its predecessors,
which were part of the gradual transition into modern computing.)
But to all the Unix geekwads (and no, that *isn't* a criticism of the
software *itself*) who want to attack MS over their OEM licensing
(among other ass-pulled-from stuff), just realize that you're wrong.
Why are nearly all competitively priced computers only sold with
Windows? Well, do you know *anything* about business, or do you just
assume that it must be Microsoft's alleged bullying?
The OEMs benefit from that licensing. It's called volume. They get
discounted, widely usable software, they churn out hundreds of
identical machines, people get a bargain - no doubt *cheaper* than
offering options would be, for the same hardware. If you don't want
the software, it's called formatting. W...Acorn Publisher / Acorn User / Qercus

it will take to get to all subscribers or to be available in the shops.

that some customers will receive duplicate copies of the magazine whilst
others will not receive one at all. We have been working hard to put right

Dear All Software Developers,
I am a hardcore programmer who treat programming as a hobby. Recently,
I have just created a website (http://www.sqlref.com) to share my
knowledge and programming experience and to record down any new tricks
that I learned. This website started with SQL info. becaue I think SQL
is the most basic but must know thing for all software developers.
Eventually, I will make this website covers other topics such as .NET,
SQL Server, Oracle, DB2 and so on. I will update it everyday.
I think all developers should be able to access the SQL reference /
Guide at any time, any place. Thus, I created this website for anybody
who need reference on SQL. While you are doing programming and stuck
with the SQL syntax, just open you web browser and type
to look for you answer. I guess sqlref.com is easy enought to remember.
No registration is required because I am not selling or marketing
anything. Just a website for programmers to refer.
I hope the website is useful to you all.

Well, I know about shift up-and-down:
shift-right ("red" or whatever) up and down on

cursor all the way to the beginning or the end.
shift-left ("white") on up and down scroll the

to scroll-down that FIRST time.)
What are some of the OTHER possibilities, ie with the

Oh, apparantely undocumented, I've found (via mistaken
key-pushes) that RIGHT-arrow will do a SWAP (on stack),
and that an UP-arrow gets you into HIST (that HIST is
*one nice feature*!)
Other tricks with those arrows?

I got a question, for those knowing more about that matter than myself,

d...SYS$SPECIFIC and SYS$COMMON not enough?
Basically, the idea is that stuff specific to a given node will be in
its SYS$SPECIFIC directory and stuff common to all nodes (satellites or
not) booting from the same system disk will be in SYS$COMMON. A good
idea as far as it goes, but does it go far enough?
In particular, there are two additional categories, which I'll give the
obvious names SYS$CLUSTER and SYS$WORLD. SYS$CLUSTER would include
stuff common to all nodes in a cluster, i.e. would differ from
SYS$COMMON if there is more than one system disk in the cluster. The
obvious place for this stuff is somewhere which is not on ANY system
disk. SYS$MANAGER:SYLOGICALS.TEMPLATE provides (at least in newer
versions of VMS, starting with 7.2 I believe) a list of at least the
most common candidates among VMS system files. Add to this procedures
to mount disks in a cluster, SYLOGIN.COM etc. (Obviously, I'm thinking
of a cluster where as much as possible is shared.) SYS$WORLD, on the
other hand, would include stuff which is common to ALL VMS system disks
in the world, e.g. the executables used by VMS itself. Obviously, this
should be on EVERY system disk.
Put another way, the current SYS$COMMON is a mixture of stuff common to
all nodes which boot from that disk, stuff common to all VMS systems in
the world and, if the stuff is not located somewhere else (pointed to by
logicals in the case of VMS system files), stuff common to all nodes in
the cluster (perhaps duplicated on more than one system...block the right port on the right ip

In order to share the same physical IP address, you gotta have a router
that supports NAT or some other protocol that will translate between public
