    Finding ports to upload torrents on behind uni switch

    Greetings, I used to have some real great upload speeds and connectivity through my uni provided internet, but it's being handled by another company now and it's essentially impossible for anyone to find me. Essentially I'm "not clever" by Oink's old standards. I know how to fix these...

    C++/make compiler error help

    I'm trying to compile a project that was sent to me using the included make file, but I'm getting a bunch of errors. The make file specifies g++-3.3 explicitly, but I commented that out to just use g++ and I'm using -4.0.1, I'm not sure if that's the cause of these problems but I'll mention...

    DDR800 ram in SD32g2?

    Like many of you guys here on the board, I've fell victim to one of the many great ram deals in the past month and bought some ballistix DDR 800, and was planning on building a SD32g2 or SK22g2. Finally decided for the SD, and as I was buying it I noticed someone claiming that their ddr800...

    Java, Unicode, and output to console

    So I'm doing some arabic processing using java, and I'm relying on extracting some arabic that's encoded in UTF-8 from an xml document. However, when I go to print (system.out) the text that I've extracted, all I see is question marks. Now I can process the same thing in ruby and have it print...

    Performance 2x120 vs 3x120 rad

    I was just curious if the performance benefit between a 2 and 3 120mm fan radiator is close to linear or if there were certain characteristics between these to make note of. For instance, if the fans are low rpm is there a significant difference in performance between them? I'm just playing...

    Basic C++ class problem

    I'm assuming this is a really simple question for experienced c++ people. So I defined my a Query class, it has its own .h and .cpp file, but I can't seem to use it in another file. I have another .cpp file that's just filled with methods and has a main at the bottom, and if I say Query q; in...

    Serializing STL objects

    Does anyone know how to do this without using the boost libraries? I eventually need to serialize a list of pairs of ints, but an example of how you would serialize any STL container would be helpful. And does anyone know if from a performance point of view, if I were to just write the...

    USB hardrive to increase laptop speed?

    I was thinking today while my laptop was really bogged down with HD access (my fault, I only have 512m ram in it), in addition to adding more ram, if I were to use a spare raptor as a USB drive and boot from there, would that alleviate the problem or does anyone out there do this for the sole...

    CPU usage problem with iTunes

    So I quit using iTunes a few months ago because whenever I opened it every once and a while my cpu usage would shoot to 100% for about a minute every ten minutes or so, even after I closed it.

    Where to buy: shuttle xpc motherboards

    Is there any place to get these? As my 75g2 is getting a little dated I want to upgrade but I want to use the same case (especially since I just paid $50 for the reflectix mirror face panel). I might use a reserator, so I don't have to worry about cooler compatability, if you were wondering.

    Timer-based torrents?
