Comment by ting zhang on Top 10 Tips For a DBA

hehe,it is very interesting,i am a coder and i found it is also for developers..

Comment by LewisC on A New Job For 2009 – Lead Architect

Good point. The jobs I would really be aware of will probably all be in the US. If a recruter wanted to post a cool non-US job, I would do so but I don’t know any non-US recruiters. ;-)

Comment by HelenWei on YOU Should Write a Blog!

Hi, experts, and coders,

I am looking for the groups those discuss the methods and procedures that can make the oracle data extraction and integration at the oracle CRM database interface client section. Please add me to any tools using discussion, such like Visual basic, Java, or SQL server, or Oracle Siebel CRM itself, or any similar applications that will help.

Thanks!

Comment by LewisC on Is the EEEPC Netbook Underpowered?

I’m actually ok with the screen size. You didn’t say the model but I am thinking you got the HP Mini which is 8.9 inches. I got the 10.2 inch and I think it really makes a difference.

Mine (with xp) boots in a minute or so.

Thanks,

Comment by sschurig on Is the EEEPC Netbook Underpowered?

Trying some of these Netbooks at a local Dealership I found an HP Netbook Model, which at least for my Preferences had a better keyboard, already came with 2 Gig Memory and Vista Basic (although I’m not sure that’s really a better choice than XP). Built-In HSDPA Modem is the only thing I’m missing – however the 3 USB Modem things I’ve got work without any problem, the thing is sufficiently small to slip in … Read the rest!

Comment by chet on Is the EEEPC Netbook Underpowered?

I don’t know why people need to complain about these things so much. It’s small…everything is going to be smaller! Shocker.

If it works for you then that is all that matters.

I like them too…if I could hold a job for more than a month at a time I would get one too. ;)
