Ahh Microsoft.
WHAT HAVE THEY DONE NOW?
People were reporting that while playing media files such as MP3s, network throughput on their gigabit LANs was dropping precipitously.
I never saw a problem?
Minako-chan, how fast is your network card?
...

 C'est_la_V asks Artemis

10/100
That is the older standard speed which most people have. However, gigabit Ethernet, which is the newer standard, is on the rise. It operates 10 times faster than what you have.
SO WHAT IS THE PROBLEM IN VISTA?
Microsoft decided that in order to provide a smooth, uninterrupted media playing experience, that network interface speed would be throttled whenever media files were playing, to wit:

Mizunomics01 pasted:
The driver that gives packets received by network adapter drivers to the TCP/IP driver, causes NDIS to "indicate", or pass along, at most 10 packets per millisecond (10,000 packets per second). Because the standard Ethernet frame size is about 1500 bytes, a limit of 10,000 packets per second equals a maximum throughput of roughly 15MB/s. 100Mb networks can handle at most 12MB/s, so if your system is on a 100Mb network, you typically won't see any slowdown. However, if you have a 1Gb network infrastructure and both the sending system and your Vista receiving system have 1Gb network adapters, you'll see throughput drop to roughly 15%.
WAIT
"BY 15% OR TO 15%"
to 15%.
THAT'S CRAZIER THAN *I* AM! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
DID NO ONE EVEN BOTHER TO CALCULATE THE DROP-OFF? WAS THERE NOT ONE SINGLE ENGINEER AMONGST THEM WHO EVER SAID "HEY, YOU KNOW, GIGABIT IS PRETTY POPULAR THESE DAYS."?
WHY IS MEDIA PLAYBACK IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN NETWORK PERFORMANCE? IF THE NETWORK IS HEAVILY LOADED, WELL GEE, MAYBE THERE'S A REASON FOR THAT?
It mystifies me, frankly.
A dual core Intel processor with 2 gig of memory should handle gig ethernet file copying, playing blu-ray disks, serve as a network router, and render video all at the same time.
But I like vista
You like the shiny colors
Yes she does, which is why we're on "Suburban Senshi Rainbow Funtime chat"
I like that name!!
No we're not using it
Moh~
Here's some news for you: In honor of the 30th anniversary of Star Wars, NASA will launch Luke Skywalker's original Jedi lightsaber into space along with the crew of the space shuttle Discovery.
Could we launch Jar-Jar into space and never bring him back? I'd pay to see footage of his action figure hurtling into the void.
"Gwah? Meesa gonna Explosively decompress?!"
LOL




That is my hero ^
I think I fought a Lemures like that once
...
What is it X-chan?
Boston law firm Nixon Peabody commissions a song to praise itself ("Everyone's a winner at Nixon Peabody!") after being named one of Fortune's 100 Best Places to Work. The legal blog 'Above the Law' posts an MP3 of the song, and writes about it.
Now
Looking at it..
That song makes me want to impale my head on a spike.
Average associate billable hours at that firm are reported at 2258. That's more akin to a sweatshop than a "Best Place to Work".
Sounds like you'd make a lot of money, though?
Look.
To get to that number, 50 weeks out of the year you are billing 45 hours a week.
However, lawyers routinely have a third or more of their time spent doing things that are not billable to a client. So, a 45 hour week in billable hours is actually closer to a 70 hour work week.
How do you get to 70 hours a week? You work morning, noon, night, weekends, holidays, kid's birthdays (wait, never mind, no time for kids or marriage), your dental appointment, in your sleep, and while you are trying to buy your way to happiness.
This is not your life for a week, this is your life.
Wow.
You think that's bad.
Ever since the wedding Michi and I have been looking into property in Toronto for investment purposes.
And on the radio we keep hearing the f[BLEEP]king "Air Canada" song by Celine Dion




Wait wait wait wait LOL
Isn't that also Hillary Clinton's new Campaign Theme Song?

 Karasuma_Akane digs a bit

Why yes, yes it is.
That's irony for you.

I just need my coffee that's all.
Sweet delicious coffee.

The "Star Trek New Voyages" team recently released a new episode guest starring George Takei as Sulu, but the site crashed under the enormous amount of visitors.
They've released a statement:

FireFly_9 pasted:
STNV Fans: I want to thank all the fans for making the premiere such a success, but it appears were were not completely prepared for the amount of success we would get. We are currently moving the site and the streaming to new servers and will also be adding an option for downloading (which will help dial-up people). So we apologize for the delays for those who have not yet seen the new episode, but bear in mind we are not a big Hollywood studio. There should be more to say later in the day so if the site is not up yet check back here for an update. - James Cawley
Man they should have got that up on bittorrent like the other episodes
Well, here's a Review of it whenever it does go up.
You people and your science fiction.
The hell are you talking about, Karasuma, you ARE a f[BLEEP]king Alien
...
YOU'RE THE ALIEN, JERK.
... Good point.
heh funniest thing I've read all day, re: a dark match on RAW
"Snitsky vs. Super Crazy. It was a 5 star match, that is if your scale is out of 100. Snitsky wins. "
I can't believe you're still watching Wrestling, Haruka-poppa.
I'm hanging on in the belief that s[BLEEP]t will get better.
Pardon me, but speaking of Wrestling I do have a little tibit on the Chris Benoit situation:
"Chris Benoit had a hormone disorder that permitted the amount of steroids he was prescribed before the pro wrestler killed his wife, son and himself in June, an attorney for Benoit's personal doctor said in court papers on Monday."
Interesting...
The state DA hasn't decided to bring charges yet, which is why the Tox. report hasn't been made public.
There's an open request for it from the Federal government, but it'll take some weeks for that to come down.
Quoting the attorney for Dr. Phil Astin:

Aya_Reiko pasted:
The state medical examiner that conducted the autopsy went and did a press conference about a month ago, [suggesting] specifically that the testosterone that was found in the home — understanding that all testosterone is a form of anabolic steroid — the testosterone found in the home isn't the typical kind you find with body building, not the synthetic type that you typically see with body building. And he also suggested that there was a testicular deficiency with Mr. Benoit.
I'm reading this interesting article on how Pro Wrestling fans are turning on stars they think are "unclean" with Rey Mysterio being one of the more surprising names on the list~ and Edge too.

 Karasuma_Akane digs around in her file folder on Wrestling, the one she uses for Ginga reports.

Wrestling Observer Newsletter editor Dave Meltzer recently came up with a list of 65 wrestlers who have, since 1997, died before their 50th birthday. An equivalent mortality score would be 186 major league baseball players and 435 NFL players.

Karasuma_Akane pasted:
"If there is a profession in America with a higher mortality rate, I'd like to know," wrote noted sports journalist Frank Deford last week in an article on the Sports Illustrated Web site. "A professional wrestler probably has a greater chance of dying than a soldier posted to Iraq. But who cares? Who does anything about it?"
In what was likely the first step toward possible hearings this fall, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee last month asked WWE chairman Vince McMahon to voluntarily come forward with documents detailing his organization's drug policy, citing "questions about reports of widespread use of steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs by professional wrestlers." Although WWE had just recorded the most lucrative quarter in company history, the request sent WWE shares tumbling. A second congressional panel, the Committee on Energy and Commerce, later sent WWE a letter requesting information on th company's drug-testing policy over the past 20 years. The letter indicated that any investigation would'tt be limited to just WWE.
Yo, 'Ruka - Last Monday night was a test run to see how JR and Tazz would work as a team. Apparently Vince has wanted to break up JR and Lawler for a while due to feeling that they are too Southern, which Kevin Dunn doesn't like. If they split the team, Lawler would go to ECW to work with Joey Styles and also wrestle from time to time. Dusty Rhodes really wants Lawler with the ECW brand.
I'm gonna commit heresy here.
They ARE too damn southern.
There. I said it.
Can we stop talking about wrestling
Yes because I'm going to each lunch

 SpeedRcrX is away 

Damn. Lunchtime already
I'll just go get my instant rice noodle bowl
Ano...

Oh god. Don't tell me you ate it.
DAMMIT AYA

Surely a more appropriate song for a law firm would be 'Bastard' by Motley Crue? Muahaha.
