Downtime

Sorry about the downtime everyone.  Yesterday was the last day of school, and today I moved back home.  My webpage is running on my Ubuntu server running in VMWare Fusion on my MacPro.  Soon as I get enough money I’ll move it to it’s own little Mac Mini that won’t travel with me. 

Mac OS X’s Magical Undecillion

I was curios how well OS X can say number magnitudes, and while doing so found out something very interesting. If you go to the terminal and type “say 1000000000000000000000000000000000000” (which is one undecillion), you get a buss error. If you go to textedit, enter that number, and tell it to speak it (under the Edit > Speech menu), it will crash. If you do one number less or one number more it will work–just doesn’t like that number. Note: adding any number of zeros at the end and it will continue to crash–but mix zero with any number and it will work.

Yeah, I’m a nerd…

I got a little bored this evening so I decided to check out my Google history trends.  All I can say is, I’m a nerd…

Ubuntu 8.04

Looks like it is that time of year again!  Another great update from our friends at Ubuntu.  Version 8.04 is going to be out very soon, and since Ubuntu has been doing such a great job of running my website (and for free i might add!) I thought I’d take the opportunity to give it a plug.  Check it out.
