Oddly, there is nothing about a ½" pipe that is ½", be it copper, iron, or PVC. Nice tables with the internal and external dimensions of pipe of various materials.
A really enjoyable story about the demise of the Weekly World News that I read in the N&O; today. I'm pig-biting mad! I only read the cover while waiting in line at the grocery store but I remember laughing out loud at the clever headlines they'd have. So much better than the celebrity crap I see now...
The WiiCade Wii Remote API is a software interface that provides Flash programs with the ability to read and access the features of the Nintendo Wii Remote controller when they are run on the Internet Channel web browser.

I've been riding the OPT/TTA bus (TTA route 420) from Hillsborough to Chapel Hill (and back) for about 20 months and I love it. The benefits include saving the environment, saving money on parking (more than $1000/year) and gas (about $1400/year), avoiding the bother of driving, and fellowship with a friendly community of people. The University kindly picks up the tab through the Commuter Alternatives Program . I'm blogging about it in hopes more people will learn about this poorly advertised service.
The fit-PC looks like a very interesting platform for ET projects. It is cheap ($285), small (4.7x4.6x1.6 inches), low power (3 to 5 watts) and very capable:
Our web pages are in AFS space, which would be great but AFS is a pain. The security policy requires me to login with a password in order to get a token in order to access an ACL protected directory. I decided to see if I could get the emacs package
to help me with this. Tramp will use scp to retrieve remote files and to write them on save. How can I get it work with AFS?
Good but I didn't like it as much as the strawberry.
Here is what I had to do to get rdesktop to connect to XP Professional installed on VMware Workstation 6 running on Feisty.
Lots of pages out there address problems people have getting sound to work with VMware running on Linux hosting Windows but none of those solutions did it for me. VMware Workstation 6 insists on using /dev/dsp which for some strange reason I didn't have. I noticed I had /dev/dsp1 through /dev/dsp5 but no plain /dev/dsp. A few minutes fooling with Audacity showed me where each of those played, and /dev/dsp3 seems to play through the speakers on my Audigy 2 so I knew that was the one I wanted it to use. I simply did:
sudo ln -s /dev/dsp3 /dev/dsp
and that seemed to do the trick.
