Mr Cheeks Drop it to the Bottom Feat. Jody (OFFICIAL VIDEO)
Windows XP was the last client version of Windows to include the Pinball game
that had been part of Windows since Windows 95. There is apparently
speculation that this was done for legal reasons.
No, that's not why.
One of the things I did in Windows XP was port several millions of lines of
code from 32-bit to 64-bit Windows so that we could ship Windows XP 64-bit
Edition. But one of the programs that ran into trouble was Pinball. The 64-bit
version of Pinball had a pretty nasty bug where the ball would simply pass
through other objects like a ghost. In particular, when you started the game,
the ball would be delivered to the launcher, and then it would slowly fall
towards the bottom of the screen, through the plunger, and out the bottom of
Games tended to be really short.
Two of us tried to debug the program to figure out what was going on, but
given that this was code written several years earlier by an outside company,
and that nobody at Microsoft ever understood how the code worked (much less
_still_ understood it), and that most of the ...

Over the past few days, there's been a lot of talk about the NY Times
"paywall" and whether or not it's "working." It was kicked off by a Bloomberg
piece arguing that things were going amazingly well with the paywall, proving
the doubters wrong. I've actually had a surprising number of people contact me
about that article, asking for my take on it -- so let's make a couple of
upfront statements and then explore it:
1. First off, I agree that the performance of the NY Times paywall _greatly
exceeded_ my own expectations for it. I was quite harsh in predicting it would
be a complete flop. I was wrong. It wasn't a flop. I explore _why_ below.
2. That said, I don't think that it's been nearly as big a "success" as some
are making it out to be, and I still think that it wasn't the best play that
the NYT could have or should have made -- and it's doubtful that anyone else
following in the NYT's footsteps would find similar results. And that's a
pretty big problem, because even if you think the NYT's ...

Custom 1948 Ford COE Pick-up

There are plenty of custom car builders out there, and like many of them,
Bodie Stroud's talents are probably only outdone by his love and knowledge of
cars. Take this project he completed last year, for example. While it is
instantly recognizable as a 1969 Boss Mustang, Stroud has customized almost
every aspect of the car combining the heart of a Can-Am racecar with the
styling of a classic funny car to create one of the coolest modified first-gen
Mustangs you'll ever see. The build process was documented - and recently
released - by director Julian King in a video called, _The Real Thing_.
For the funny car look, Stroud chopped the top, widened the body and added
some fat tires in the back. The true beauty of this beast is under the hood
with a very unique engine powering Stroud's 'Stang. Using one of 10 engines
developed for Mario Andretti's 1969 Can-Am racer, this car is powered by a 494
-cubic-inch V8 that was dyno'd at 777 horsepower. To handle that kind of
power, Stroud replaced the Mustang's unibody chassis with a custom body-on-
frame design that features ...

The New York Times reports that President Obama will cut short his Christmas
vacation in Hawaii to return to Washington in hopes of securing a deal on the
fiscal cliff. The president, who spent the holiday with his family, may arrive
in the capital as early as Wednesday.
On Friday, before leaving for Hawaii, Obama expressed optimism that a deal
could still be struck. But expectations for a large-scale deal have faded
considerably over the past week. Democrats and Republicans remain far apart on
tax and spending issues, and House speaker John Boehner demonstrated tenuous
control of his own party when a vote for his "Plan B" measure was
unceremoniously shelved. Many believe that a small-scale temporary fix is now
the most realistic solution.

What can't the Raspberry Pi do? Well, it definitely _can_ operate as an
AirPlay receiver for Apple's Wi-Fi audio streaming protocol, it turns out.
Cambridge engineering student Jordan Burgess managed to convert one of the $25
open computer into an AirPlay receiver along the lines of Apple's AirPort
Express, using open source software, a USB Wi-Fi adapter, SD card, micro USB
cable and the Pi itself.

Indian Railways (reporting mark IR) is an Indian state-owned enterprise, owned
and operated by the government of India through the Ministry of Railways. It
is one of the world's largest railway networks comprising 115,000 km (71,000
mi) of track over a route of 65,000 km (40,000 mi) and 7,500 stations. IR
carries about 7,500 million passengers annually or more than 20 million
passengers daily (more than a half of which are suburban passengers) and 2.8
million tons of freight daily. In 2011-2012 Indian Railways earned 104,278.79
crore (US$18.98 billion) which consists of 69,675.97 crore (US$12.68 billion)
from freight and 28,645.52 crore (US$5.21 billion) from passengers tickets.
Railways were first introduced to India in 1853 from Bombay to Thane. In 1951
the systems were nationalized as one unit, the Indian Railways, becoming one
of the largest networks in the world. IR operates both long distance and
suburban rail systems on a multi-gauge network of broad, metre and narrow
gauges. It also owns locomotive and coach production facilities at several
places in India and are assigned codes identifying their gauge, kind of power
and type of operation. Its operations cover twenty four states and ...
