iBook internal modem unreliable using v.92 or v.90
I can't get a reliable dial-up connection using my iBook's (running OS X
10.2.8)internal modem using v.92 or v.90 - I have to use v.34, which
limits my speeds to around 31.2 kbps. My desktop performa 6400 (running
OS 9.1) connects fine at higher speeds (up to about 50 kbps) using it's
internal 56K modem - it's frustrating when your 8 year old computer
connects faster than your 1 year old computer. Any ideas for improving
my performance over dial-up? Would an external modem work better?
...v.92 speed drops to v.34
For years I used external Kflex and v.90 modems on an old Mac. It
normally connected around 52k although the exact speed would vary. While
I was online the speed would sometimes drop back 5 or 10%.
Now I have a PPC Mini with an internal v.92 modem. Internet Connect
almost always says it connects at 52k. I don't understand the lack of
variation, but downloads are pretty consistently 5.86kB/s.
If it drops back, it drops 39% to 3.6kB/s. This happens whether I use
the v.92 or the v.90 script.
Could it be the modem?
The modem driver?
ISPs? (A form or rationing when there's a lot of traffic?)

Modems "retrain" periodically. All modems do, ...v.92 in Mac Mini
For years I had a computer with a V.90 external modem. I could usually
download at 5.5kB/s or so, and in time the speed might be renegotiated
down to 4.8 or so.
Now I have a G4 Mini with v.92. It usually starts out downloading at
5.86kB/s. That may hold up for hours or minutes. When it renegotiates,
it goes straight to 3.66. That's a lot less tolerable than 4.8.
Do they all do that? Is it a problem with v.92 or a problem with Apple?

Has anyone had any experience with this modem using Warp?
Particularly of concern is compatibility with existing apps such as
InJoy v2.30 and FaxWorks Pro v3.00.01.
What issues or additional needs, if any, are required to simply
replace my USR v.everything?
If there are any OS/2 specific issues that are not resolved, can
anyone recommend another brand that works better?

USR doesn't want you to upgrade, they want you to buy a new modem!
They also fear the load of modems that will come back that fail to
upgrade due to user error or ones that were interrupted during the
upgrade. This always happens and it is probably on the bottom of their

It has been less than a month since I switched to OS X and I already
miss my old Beige G3. I had to give it up for OS X. Which means that I
also had to give up the A/V capability. That's the part that hurts.
That was a great machine. Is there a newer A/V Mac that will run OS X?
I thought one of the old gray and white G4s would. Which one was that?
My preference would be to have one that boots in either OS X or OS 9.

I love the typing assist I get when using C# in VS2005 to write COM clients.
I need to write a program to automate some tasks in outlook. Givin that the
typing assist feature is very important to me, what would be the best
combination of IDE and language for COM scripting?
I was experimenting with Groovy and Eclipse and was extremely pleased to
discover that I get the typing assist with that combination. However, I'm
getting an accvio with a minimal outlook COM client. I hear great things
about Iron Python: is there a good IDE for it that has a typing assist?

...license v license v /license/
(Why License Agreements Do Not Control Copy Ownership: First Sales and
I especially like this part:
"When "license" is used as a noun in the copyright context, it means
something like, "a grant by the holder of a copyright to another of any
of the rights embodied in the copyright short of an assignment of all
rights" as in "The agreement contained a license to reproduce 20 copies
of the photograph."
When "license" is used as a verb it typically means "to give permission
or consent" as in "The author licensed her publication right to the
nation's largest distributor."
These uses of the word relate only to the intangible copyright.
The word "license" is also, unfortunately, used in conjunction with
tangible things. First, as a noun it is often used synonymously with the
terms "agreement" or "contract" when that underlying agreement contains
grants of copyright permissions, as in "Did she sign the license?" This
usage seems to lead to confusion less often and I will not address it
However, particularly in the software context, the word "license" is
used as a verb in yet another way that I wish to focus on. Software
distributors often say, "We only license our software. We do not sell
it." T...110 V outlet to 220 V
My wife brought several 220 V kitchen appliances when she moved from Europe
to Canada. In our kitchen, there is an outlet which goes directly into the
electric panel with its own breaker. I wonder whether I could change this
outlet to become 220 V and if so, is it just a question of changing the
breaker? Is it advisable to do so? I am aware of the risk to connect a
standard 110 V appliance in this outlet.
Thanks for the advice.
Hire an electrician to install a 220 volt outlet. You cannot simply
rewire a 120 volt outlet to 220 volt. When the proper receptacle

I am trying to write a very brief comparison of the Date and Math objects in
terms of instance v static objects. What I have below is my best so far. Any
criticisms or suggestions are most welcome!
Date is an instance object.
You use Date by creating instances of it
- you call methods on those instances.
- you change data to do with each instance.
Instance objects store state
- meaning they hold data that may change over time.
Math is a static object.
You never create instances of it
- you call methods on Math directly.
- it never stores data for you: each method performs some mathematical
computation and returns a result. It is up to you to store required data.
Static objects can store state - but Math does not.

The resetlogs_change# number you see is a system change number. Every
transaction has it's own SCN. The SCNs are stored in redolog files,
each redolog file has it's own *sequence number* which is incremented
