This is the most retarded 'advisory' I've ever seen. There were half a dozen Visual Basic programs out there that exploited this by the mid 90s, and it's never been considered an issue of any severity. This is not news!! [link]

If they are, then our Universe is curved like a Pringle, shaped like a horn, and named after a Star Trek character. You could not make it up. [link]

The most useful fast-access information tool I've discovered lately is a Wikipedia shortcut in Mozilla. File a bookmark with location "" and keyword "w". Then you can jump to any Wikipedia article by typing "w articlename" in the URL bar. It even works with spaces.

dennis, that article about space being bluish was debunked. it's actually a boring beige color. just like my soul.

I can't find enough information on how to create a bootable OpenBSD floppy system which loads into a ramdisk. Poor me. Anyone knows more? Thanks.

so some enthusiasts over at almost have the ipaq h22xx port working -- well enough for my involvement anyways. *sigh* is it really time for a new palmtop already? [link]

Now on the internet the company that brought you low-cost PCB fabs will sell you a truly sexy system on a chip (an ARM on a "DIL40" package, just like an 8051!) [link]

Most important formatting tip: identical categories of info should start at identical parts of the page. Right now only username works this way: text and timestamp all run together.

This formatting sucks. Not very readable at all. Most attention is drawn to the username of the poster which is not significant. Long, thin rows tend to blend with one another when scanning the page. Suggestions: One column per topic; text in a colored box, meta-info in smaller font outside box.

The "Geekstuff" category is for articles relating to technology, like commentary on a new software release or the SCO trial.
