NetworkingThis article is an excerpt from the highly informative Navas Cable Modem/DSL Tuning Guide.

  View Printable Version

Read about it on The Register. There is also a piece on this at ZDNet News.

MicroDrive MP3 Player You Talk To

  View Printable Version 
HardwareThe e.Digital MXP 100 comes with a choice of 340MB, 512MB, and 1GB MicroDrives and is about 25% larger than a Rio 500 flash portable. That makes it small enough to conveniently fit in a pocket, something you can't do with a jukebox player like Creative's Nomad Jukebox. The Nomad is three times larger than the MXP 100 and quite a bit heavier.

Red Hat ext3 journaling file system

  View Printable Version 
WhitepapersIn Red Hat Linux 7.2, Red Hat provides its first officially supported journaling file system: ext3. The ext3 file system is a set of incremental enhancements to the robust ext2 file system that provide several advantages. This paper summarizes some of those advantages (first in general terms and then more specifically), explains what Red Hat has done to test the ext3 file system, and (for advanced users only) touches on tuning.

Other journaling file systems are being written for Linux; this paper does not address them in any way and is not intended to compare ext3 to any other journaling file system.

Wrong book - no flight

  View Printable Version 
NewsIf a sufficiently high number of airport security people are having a bad hair day, and your reading material looks remotely similar to anything Mohammed Atta might have read during the last 30 years, this can happen.

There's just no end to what "trained professionals" can get away with. At least in the land of the free (and hysterical).

Will that be sleeve or ball bearings?

  View Printable Version 
HardwareIs your box noisy? If so, the culprit is probably one of the fans inside. If you ever wondered if ball bearing fans make less noise than sleeve bearing ones, you can read this article at Comair Rotron's web site. These people make a living out of providing fans to the electronics industry, so you can rest assured they know NPEL from CFM from dB.

If you wonder what a ball bearing is, you probably shouldn't spend time wondering why it's noisy.
