Looks like those names were invented at SAIL, the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Lab: http://www.catb.org/~esr/jargon/html/B/bucky-bits.html If your keyboard has SEVEN shift keys, you gotta come up with some kind of names for them all... http://www.catb.org/~esr/jargon/html/S/space-cadet-keyboard....

Address based virtual hosts. Hmmmm. That sounds about right.

The only real goal, of course, is to mess around. Learn about managing networks and name serving and certificates and address resolution and all that good stuff, but without having to buy a whole farm of computers.

that is actually 2 different questions if I'm following you correctly .. as far as setting up multiple web servers yes just do what you already did which is virtual hosts. As far as setting up a LAN in a box you can do that via vmware's free version of vmware server. I'm pretty sure the virtual hos...

Potentially super-basic C question

I'm thinking about possibly considering thinking about designing a navigation program. My company uses a proprietary Windows one, but I think that in my mind, I could make a better one, more suited to our needs. So what a navigation program does is read in 3 basic things: position, heading, and pitc...

[offtopic]Regarding that, I once set up Apache so that I could run a webserver from my computer. Using virtual hosts, I was able to actually create like 4 different web addresses that could all be accessed from the browser by name. For example, I created a duplicate of my site at www.triple-bypass.n...

You pick up something here, you pick up something there, you read a Wikipedia article that sounds interesting, you Google about a command flag you don't understand. Learning what you need to know is not that big a deal. Sounds like your main problem is going to be convincing people that you are "eli...

The Microsoft Way (R) would be to list exactly what the infractions are right on the summons, but give away no hints or warnings beforehand. Whether that's legal or ethical is not really their concern.

If the house burns down I don't really have any off-site storage so the rsync site you mention might be a good idea. This brings up a good point. My dad goes crazy about backups. He has 2 USB hard drives that he keeps his work stuff on, and he keeps one at the office and one at home. Now he wants t...

Nice idea, but that would mean that our favorite multi-billion dollar $oftware company would have to open all but like 6 lines of their newest proprietary operating system.

Although the ends are great, the means are kinda iffy. I suspect Sun is not opening Java because they want to share their work with the community and foster better development. Rather, they've squeezed all the proprietary applications they can out of it, and don't want to shovel any more cash into d...

Although the title of the ephpod homepage claims it is "for Windows (and Linux)", Linux isn't mentioned anywhere on the site at all. Additionally, the program is kinda unstable and doesn't completely support the 5thGen iPods. Sorry, but this is not a program I would install. gtkpod is free and runs ...

I can help you out with awk. But I'm not sure why you would need it. Shouldn't it warn you of dependencies, and then download them for you? Personally, I recommend a package manager. Smart worked well for me, and it can deal with yum and apt formats in the same program. By choosing to install one pa...
