Finally cries of countless developers who code on Intel 386 machines with 16Mb of RAM have been answered. There’s no more need to look with envy at those fancy 32bit OS-es – things like charts, gauges and grids (pictured below is a Windows 3.1 implementation of WebDataGrid with running totals and custom slider control) are available to everybody.

Infragistics is known for innovations and being on the cutting edge. Kudos for not forgetting what got us there.

Don’t code and drive

There is a new masterpiece for sale at Amazon

Using this amazing device you can place your laptop right on the steering wheel of your car. Just imagine playing “Grand Theft Auto” while driving a real car – what can compare to that? Also this not being a cell phone will never get you in trouble with the police.

As one of the avid fans put it: “What makes this product so wonderful is that now I can write letters while I drive! No more texting, no more tickets! I have been keeping up with all my friends and they appreciate how much more “personalized” my letters are than my texts. If there is any drawback, it’s on windy roads, because sometimes I make stray marks on the tighter curves, but it’s a small price to pay for staying within the law!”

‘Tis the season. Soon.

This tree now stands on the roof of parking lot at 700 Plaza Drive in Secaucus.

Hopefully there will be a parking spot big enough for the sleigh.

When evaluation period of Windows version that I ran on our home server expired, I decided to give Ubuntu a try. And I couldn’t be happier – everything from multimedia and file sharing to Remote Desktop over SSH (pictured below) is amazingly easy.

So, at least for now it stays. We will see.

Are you a real dope audiophil?

By , June 16, 2008 8:25 am sells this amazing 1.5 meters (59 inches) cable for $500. People who used it claim to have seen GOD. Here is one and not the most incredible story from a satisfied customer:

This cable literally saved my life. Someone broke into my house and they threatened me with a gun. When I said that I could prove that using better copper for a digital connection makes the audio sent over it sound better they didn’t beleive me.  I made a deal with them to spare my life if it was true.
