It didn't preserve my tabs. Also, prefer only one pane, and now there's two. Any way to have only a single pane?

Just discovered that the following statement:

"Microsoft's .Net is cross-platform by design."

meets the requirements of a Zen Koan. It just so happens to be similar in nature to the question, "What is the sound of one platform clapping?"

Fluffy Long hours - no good... If nothing else, this sparks a meaningful and timely discussion. I don't maintain that there's any correct answer here. Seems reasoning can only take us so far with these issues, then we bump into the "I just don't like it." I don't see anything ultimately wrong with t...

<ContinueRantThread> Citing the creator's motivation, or who he works with, is a species of informal fallacy called "style over substance," its genus being "changing the subject." These factors just aren't relevant to the argument, but are a distraction, at best. An appeal to the History Channel's o...

Hmm... How ethically numb must one be to need such an experiential simulation to awaken any sense of tragedy toward this horrific event? This 'game,' with a sloughing veneer of good intent, seems profoundly infused by exploitation. Am not questioning an inherent freedom of choice to 'play' such a 'g...

Hi Chris!

A significant implication here is that all apps would be 'portable' if executed from within this virtualized environment, so no code adjustments for portability would be necessary.

Will share my findings...

Virtualization Hits USB Drives

Interesting, this: "Virtualization software leader VMware Inc. is testing a desktop virtualization program that can be stored on a USB drive and moved from one computer to another."

Downloaded and ran this Web server. Looks quite good! Initially, Apache's configured to listen on port 8080, but this is easily changed to port 80 (if you want), so http://localhost works without specifying a port. When initially getting info about the server, it shows warnings that the MySQL admin ...

Hi All! This looked good, even if it saved minimal window info to the registry, but was unable to get it to work. Did a port scan against a few servers, and it saw nothing, even saying the hosts were not up. Tried again after disabling my firewall, but it's still not working. Anyone have different r...
