Bleh: A NICE XP Feature

Just discovered this neat bit: on Windows XP you can use netstat -ab to list all active ports on your network stack, and the -b function will list all the apps/dlls that are using those ports. This is a godsend when you're trying to figure out what the heck is holding that port open. May I add that iTunes has way too many open ports. Ponderings

One of my favorite parts of 2.0RC1 is the way it handles timed backups. OOo 1.x saved the actual file every time. That was troublesome for me because I would often edit old files to create new ones in the same format. As soon as an auto-save occurred, the original file would be overwritten. OOo 2.0 saves the file in a temporary location in case of a crash, but does not overwrite the original file. No more accidentally overwriting old files for me! I know it's a small thing, but when you use a program daily like I do, that small thing becomes a big deal.

Quake IV Linux FAQ

id's Timothee "TTimo" Besset has posted a Quake IV in Linux FAQ. Right now the binaries are not available. I'm hoping that they whip up a Linux demo so I can see if this bad boy will actually run on my box or not. Thanks Linux Games.

NFL Week #6 Final

As I predicted, Eeyore and I finished tied at 10-4. Year-to-date we remain tied at 53-35 (.602). At least we're back over .600. My fantasy team won too, which is a bonus. I lead our league in points against.


You know what would be nice? If I could actual use test cases that worked when writing new code. What an awful morning I am having.

It's probably a good thing I can't start throwing things at work.

Update! That's right. I just made the same stupid coding mistake. Not once, or twice. FOUR times. *Cuss* *Swear* GRAWRARWRWR!!!

A.T. Hun comments: We don't call him Teh Mastar for nothing!
