Repair or Replace?

To summarize from last week: We were down at the beach house when the hard drive on Lisabetta, my HP Compaq TabletPC, failed badly enough that the system wouldn't boot. I managed to recover from that, and all was working well, but drive failures can't be overlooked....

Mega-Memory SIMs: Some Support Builds, But Many Questions Remain

Some large mobile network operators are warming to the idea of using high-memory SIM cards to deliver such applications as instant branding of handsets, digital rights management and Internet connectivity. But with one important exception, they don’t seem keen on using the big SIMs for massive storage of content, such as full music tracks or videos. And they are concerned about future availability of handsets to handle the mega-cards and prices they would have to pay for them.

Adding dimension to your characters


When most people hear the words ‘vector art’ the first things that probably come to mind are flat shapes and solid colours. In the ever-changing world of digital character design, your personal style almost always determines your illustrative technique. While some styles call for a flat approach, others will need a little dimensionality to spice up the composition.

Computer, Heal Thyself!
“Are you tired of fixing your computer?”

New technology is being developed that allows computers to fix their flaws and problems automatically, without the user ever being aware that there was an issue. New software applications and hardware are being developed that will allow the computer or the computer's operating system to sense when there is a problem, and to fix the problem before the machine crashes or harms the system.

Phishing Scams Grow Teeth & You’re The Prey

You know the drill. An email comes in that looks like it’s from eBay, PayPal, or one of the many other services scammers commonly co-opt. It tells you there’s a problem with your account, and the only way to fix it is to click the link in the email and “confirm” a bunch of personal information. You delete it because it’s obviously just another lame phishing scam.....But what about that next message? The one from your boss telling you to log in to a new internal Web site to set up an account to collaborate with other people on your team?............

RAS: A System for Supporting Research in Online Auctions

Despite the popularity of auctioning online, there are inherent security risks. For example, bidders might not pay or sellers might not deliver the item. To compound the problem, commercial auctioneers do not hold themselves liable for any transactions that go awry. Cryptographic and other security methods can help protect against many of these risks. However, there is no way to test the feasibility of such auction mechanisms. Therefore, an evaluation environment for research purposes is required.
