  • "Comments have been closed since this content was published more than 30 days ago..."

    Unlike "Coffeehouse" and "Tech Off" forum where when someone is leaving comment, the thread will bump up, posting spam at those older videos will not be visible to frequent visitors here, and therefore could make them viable targets.

    Maybe the moderators can create query for moderate comments made on video threads more than 30 days ago?

  • THANK YOU MICROSOFT (this deserves a separate thread)

    @Bass: Yes, I prefer C# over Java for this reason. When Microsoft says something is open standard, it IS open standard. Microsoft has no record to sell away patent that it owns, or to charge something when she had declared you can use it for free, before. The lawsuit for Oracle again Google is just... ugly.

  • European Parliament to Google: We can haz ur search plz

    @magicalclick: This will only affect Goggle search operations in Europe only, if your friend's main search interest is in U.S., this will not have any effect for him.

  • Google is trolling me.

    @elmer: Yup. That happens to my friend too. He has a website (if you can say something with single page content, some images and music can be a website) hosted on some shared web hosting server.

    Despite of the simple nature of his website ( and no, he's not hosting any Ad there ), Google still think his site could be harmful. Possibly like what you say - some other site on the hosting server is hosting something suspicious.

    I'd believe you could try to report the issue to Google, as there should be some sort of setting to exempt the web hosting service. Otherwise sites like WordPress will never be able to get away from this kind of warnings.


  • Finally ordered my Surface Pro 3

    @PeterF: It's good to know that.

    Btw, the "gift" that I mentioned above is this:


    As I don't have any display that use HDMI at home, I'll bring that to work and see if it can find somewhere that fits it there.

    P.S.: I'll add comment that found it's quite satisfactory to find out the Surface Pro 3 can operate about 2.5 hours on battery despite I try to drain it's power by playing some CPU demanding game. I know i7 can be pretty hungry on power.

  • Finally ordered my Surface Pro 3

    There's one more thing... for some unknown reasons, when I tried to switch the on screen keyboard to MS Quick, the keyboard changed to bopomofo instead. I don't mind if they keep the English layout, but since the Bopomofo pinyin symbols are learnt by Taiwanese only, they don't make any sense to me when typing...

    And unlike on winphone, the textbox on focus don't push itself half screen up when typing, so I don't know whether I typed something wrong unless I hide the keyboard.

    Btw it's much quieter now when I'm using it normally.

  • Finally ordered my Surface Pro 3

    Just installed Visual Studio 2013, the installation takes some time.

    The fan is a bit loud when it's operating. Other then that no complaint so far. :)

  • THANK YOU MICROSOFT (this deserves a separate thread)

    Although it's very unlikely to happen, I'm still waiting for the day that we can write code in .NET (specifically, C#) once then run on everywhere... even on Mac and iOS devices (Something that not even Java is able to do).

    Why won't developers at Apple appreciate the beauty of C# is beyond me. C# is an ECMA standard that even if they don't want to work with Microsoft, they can build their own.

  • Net Neutrality has a new champion

    FYI, the IP protocol does specify that if a packet that's larger then the MTU size limit assigned by any routers/switches on the way, it can "fragment" the packet (i.e.: break it down into multiple pieces).

    If you use TCP as transportation protocol, it'll handle the part to put things together.

    If you use UDP, the packet in most cases will simply by dropped on the receiving side.

    Therefore, I think it's fair to say dropping packet is a "by design" behavior of network.

    Btw, before the use of CAT5 cables, you can have medium packet loss even on intranet. That's why in the beginning days when TCP/IP was announced, people still prefer IPX/SPX over it since it has a smaller header size (of course, most system was already using IPX/SPX is the major factor).

    You just have to agree that the quality of network infrastructure has been significantly improved over time that what once was normal (high packet drop rate) has been seen as weird now.
