Re: Blackberry and Android OS

RIM? Either you're joking, or you don't know that Research in Motion (aka RIM) are the makers of Blackberry. Anywho...I think that RIM's saving grace is their foothold in the enterprise, and this is diminishing quickly. If they would have licensed their OS out to other manufacturers, I think that R...

Re: Samsung 830 SSD - 256GB - $189.00

Thanks for the heads up, I already have one of these and it's been nothing but rock solid (unlike my past experience with OCZ), so a second might be in order. In other news...will somebody please tell Newegg to leave their site alone? Every damn time I go there, a new layout has been pushed.

Re: Cyanogenmodding the phone, yes or no?

Cyanogenmod is made by a development team, not associated with Google. However, the ROMs are based off of AOSP ROMs with added tweaks, meaning you get an experience that's 99% stock Android (i.e. no HTC Sense, Motorola MotoBlur, Samsung TouchWiz, etc.). If you're running a stable release, it should ...

Re: Windows machines can't resolve a Linux host

Do you have the router explicitly set up as the DNS for the NICs on the Windows machines? If not, try giving that a shot. If DNS is configured on the NICs, try doing an "ipconfig /flushdns" from the command line and try pinging again.

Re: Windows machines can't resolve a Linux host

The quickest way to fix the problem would be to add a host file entry (c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts) for the Ubuntu server on the Windows boxes.

If anybody's interested, here's nearly an hours worth of tech. test footage from the Creative Director.

All Planetside 1 veterans, i.e. those that paid for at least one month's subscription, will receive priority access to the beta. With that being said, I can't wait for the beta to start.

I'm not sure if you knew this, but the CDMA variant of the Wildfire S is also known by the codenames marvelc and marvelct . You might try searching the XDA Forums using those as a starting point. It appears that both the marvelc and the marveltc are included in the Cyanogenmod 9 Alpha , so perhaps a...
