Ghostin' The Shell... (geddit hehe) http://jay.mbz.org/tech/ghostshell.html - Making Norton Ghost Shells with Norton Ghost for backup purposes. Hmm. Great. ;)

Yet another good reason NOT TO USE AOL. Why? Oh yeah, well, nothing much really EXCEPT THEY SUCK AT EVERYTHING! Including letting you send plain-text emails to usenet groups... Click here for the horror story.

What Not To Do With A Custom-Made Mercedes E420: drive it through a rock storm.

Oh hey, here's the E420 being made. Nice numberplate :) http://jay.mbz.org/e420/factory.html

A little old, but still read-worthy. The Grey Ribbon Campaign For ICANN.

I have no idea who this guy is. But check out the Last Updated date... 1996! hehe http://www.isi.edu/div7/people/postel.home/pictures.html
(found on http://www.domainhandbook.com/icann.html)

Sniff sniff outta date! yay http://www.usc.edu/dept/IPC/ (check out the links - none of them work now but the frameset page is still there. Great. I love finding abandoned web sites on the web :)

Artificial Intelligence? oooOOOOooo.... http://www.isi.edu/


Ok, on further inspection John Postel appears to have been THE main man in terms of editing the RFC documents for the ARPANET all those long years ago... I tip my cap to the man. http://www.postel.org/remembrances/">Tribute page here.
rfc-editor.org


Hurrah - an alternative to BIND! yay (BIND is software used by thousands upon thousands upon thousands of people on the Web to run DNS servers.)... It's called djbdns - not as catchy a nickname but hey it works. :) http://cr.yp.to/djbdns.html

Open Root Server Confederation. http://www.open-rsc.org/about/
Sounds almost as spooky as the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers - and YES it does exist hahahahaha :)


Man I love this programme. HeavyK's Advanced Nick Changer - http://users.pandora.be/heavyk/software/advnickchanger.htm - because I, like HeavyK, don't like the idea of censorship on the Web. I think I have the right to choose whether I use words like ftp, employ, or www in my MSN nickname. :P (sorta-quoted-and-adapted from his site)

HardwareCentral (yay) - a firm favourite with me.



Tis all for now, bed time for me in a second - and I have to figure out what to say to about, uhm, 3 teachers for not either bringing in homework, coursework or textbooks... But oh well SLEEEEEEEEEEEP :D

l8rz,
Christopher.

I'd just like to inform y'all that I don't use SETIDriver, in fact I use SETIStash. Oops - a mistake on my part. SETIStash is the more reliable (and useful) SETI@Home Helper programme I think imho - it can download up to 10 packets of data to be processed at once then goes through them one by one, showing a small status window. You can make it hide itself in the system tray, and you can also make it hide the SETI@Home client too - kinda neat. I run it all the time :)

Well, I just got back from fun fun Shropshire - where some of our friends live (they used to be our neighbours when myself and my parents lived in Altrincham, in the Manchester suburbs, back in the 80s - I was about 5 though so don't ask me what it looks like. ;)

Anyhoo, I was well chuffed to find my computer still running perfectly on its new installation of Windows 2000. Damn I love Windows 2000.

I'd also left SETIStash going - it downloads 10 lots of SETI@Home packets in one go then processes them one after the other and only dials up to send the results when it's finished all 10. Excellent idea for people still stuck on modems - just like me. It also uses the DOS SET@Home client, which runs a lot faster than the Windows screensaver client - the Windows screensaver client uses 60% of your CPU time to just dislay the graphics. ST0000pid, especially if you wanna use all your available CPU time for crunching data, not looking at pictures.


Anyway, here's some nice linkies.

The SETI@Home processing utility I use the most is SETIStash, http://www.hereintown.net/~wink/setistash.html. It's the SETI@Home Helper programme I love the most - it processes up to 10 units at once without having to dial up for each one by downloading up to 10 units at once then processing them one by one. It's also a good excuse to whack a second processor in your rig - it can process two packets at once if you have 2 CPUs in your system. Yay :D


SETIDriver - another cool programme - it has its own information panel for showing various bits and pieces of info. Using this (or any of the mentioned programmes in this blog) I can process units in a third of the time it used to take me to process them beforehand when I used to use the Windows screensaver client. (Mine take 10 hours now instead of 30 - yay!)
To go to the SETIDriver site click here... http://www.wakeassoc.com/setidriver/Download_and_Installation.htm

SETISpy shows you a crapload of extra information - you can even see a Star Map of where your packet has come from, extensive stats on how fast your puter's processing the data, and a helluva lot of other info. It's as fast as SETIDriver too, because they both use the DOS command-line-interface (or CLI) SETI@Home programme instead of the Windows client. YOu can download that from the SETI@Home site or you can find links on all of the sites which I've mentioned here.To go to the SETISpy site click here... http://pages.tca.net/roelof/setispy/

Oh, and please don't use patches for the SETI@Home client - they may speed up your processing time but they compromise the integrity of the scientific project and some can corrupt the data, giving back false readings. That's just lame.


Ah crap, it just started to rain again. And now the phone's ringing, so I can't go online. Bugger.


Right then. Off to polish off my IT coursework then that's that ove with... Study leave in 2 weeks =) oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah (does Ricki-style hand movements)

T3 - 43.232 megabits per second (28 T1s)
OC3 - 155 megabits per second (100 T1s)
OC12 - 622 megabits per second (4 OC3s)
OC48 - 2.5 gigabits per seconds (4 OC12s)
OC192 - 9.6 gigabits per second (4 OC48s)

My parents were away for the weekend (one taking a grandparent back to Cumbria, a good 500 miles away from Wiltshire) and the other was working in York. Mum went to the ALL - Association for Language Learners - annual meeting and Dinner. It's all about networking. And thanks to her, I just got myself a useful contact in the future for web design - a freelance guy who runs a design agency but leases out work to other p33ps. He's done work for mum's employers, and they publish educational books for French and Spanish and German and Italian... This is big money.

Oh yeah, I finished designing appliedtraffic.co.uk and soon the money'll come through - yay NEW DECKS TIME :D. The company who also designed their parent site, appliedweighing.co.uk also went all Pete Tong and folded a short while back so they just emailed me and my MD - one of my mates hehe - and I agreed to redesign their other site for them too.


Aah, I love the smell of money in the morning.

c0000l.

http://www.daemon-tools.net/main.htm

Wanna remove the spyware from KaZaA? (Personally I don't give a shite what apps I'm running so long as my music's free, but hey - some people are paranoid.)
http://zdnet.com.com/2100-11-875278.html

Heh... I realised the other day I'd just gone and deleted the main page for my blog, leaving just this contents page (in case you didn't know this contents page was inserted into my main page via an iframe - it made adding buttons and stuff easier for me).

St00pid f00l I am... Well it's all re-uploaded now and working sw33t.

Oops, I've gone into ASCII.
Christopher.

Interesting. (lifted from the Jolt Forums)

"Let's say it's 6:15 p.m. and you're driving home (alone of course), after an unusually hard day on the job. You're really tired, upset and frustrated. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to radiate out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home; unfortunately you don't know if you'll be able to make it that far.

"What can you do? You've been trained in CPR but the guy that taught the course neglected to tell you how to perform it on yourself."

"HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, this article seemed to be in order. Without help, the person whose heart stops beating properly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness."

"However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. Deep breaths and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital."

"From Health Cares, Rochester General Hospital via Chapter 240s newsletter AND THE BEAT GOES ON ... (reprint from The Mended Hearts, Inc.publication, Heart Response).

BE A FRIEND AND PLEASE SEND THIS ARTICLE TO AS MANY FRIENDS AS POSSIBLE, IT COULD SAVE THEIR LIVES!"

S.T.U.M.P.E.D. (Welcome to the Sinister Thinkers Unleashing Multifarious Pernicious Evil Deeds)

heeheeheehee man this is odd, and dead funny too...
http://www.bbc.co.uk/h2g2/guide/A316658

"Villains for hire!


Yes, you heard correctly. As a public service to h2g2, STUMPED has a message board which would allow you to browse through all of the current villainous want-ads, select which villain(s) you wish to use, and give them the notorious task you wish us to commit! We'll plot, we'll steal, we'll even go as far as causing traffic jams by flooding the streets with thousands of empty cars! Yes, we'd even go as far as to send an endless supply of mimes to the dwelling place of your enemy if you wish3. Anyway, for all of your evil needs, come here."

Yes, mimes. hehe.

Googling for MySQL pops up some of the strangest results you'd ever imagine...

How about some Goa / hardcore Trance music coming from Cape Town, South Africa? I love it :)

http://ufrmsa1.uniforum.org.za/~kloppers - Silent Project by Cyber7 (aka Aubrey)

The Alternative CDFS.VXD file - lets you copy CD Audio files straight from your CD as WAV files instead of having to rip them. Kinda funky huh :)

Downloadable from http://www.maz-sound.com/cd-rippers.html (scroll right down to the bottom of the page to see it :)

And a nice little feature for Winamp... http://www.geocities.com/safai_ma/download.html - Album List For Winamp.

Nice site too - but the person's using Geocities and their page has no adverts on it? /me thinks they paid Geocities for the hosting... tsk tsk tsk :)


Oooh scuse me, Dad's just come upstairs with a nice mug of tea.

Here's a nice news page... I don't normally have start pages but this will become my start page for a month so I can give it a try out.

http://www.csmonitor.com/

Why have I chosen this page? It's clear, concise, very well-designed, and I like the "download the today's paper in PDF format free" feature and the feature where you can listen to today's news. That's kinda cool.

Rock on Christian Science Monitor! :)

As the number of available IP addresses rapidly decreases in the technology-saturated world we live in, we need a new format of IP address to allow for expansion.

IPv6 is this. Read up more on it at http://www.socks.nec.com/reference/translator.html - you can also download an IPv4 (the current version of IP address used today) to IPv6 translator and other texts about IPv6. Kinda nifty huh :)

Surf the net a lot? I know I do :D and many of the, if not all of the, DNS servers which parse your requests for web sites - just like this one - are most probably running on BIND.

"BIND? buh? whathefu's that?" you might say? Well, get more info on it here.

http://www.isc.org/products/BIND/

You can also read up on DNS at HowStuffWorks.com

Ta ta for now, research on barcodes and their formats beckons. :
