Just stumbled upon this funny context-menu entry:
Well… it should be spelled: Excel
“So what is it? A memory mapped file allows you to reserve a region of address space and commit physical storage to a region (hmmm, sounds like virtual memory, isn’t it?) but the main difference is that the physical storage comes from a file that is already on the disk instead of the memory manager. I will say that it has two main purposes:
OMG! You can even specifiy views on a memory mapped file… from different processes… .NET 4 FTW!
I was in desperate need for an DDate equivalent running on Windows. DDate is an unix implementaion of date accoridng to the erisian calendar described in the principia discordia.
I only found some C Implementations. And since it’s fun to do I ported the original Discordian Date C code to C#.
You can download the C# sourcecode, licensed under CC-BY-NC here.
I also created a web page which displays the current discordian date and offers you to convert any gregorian date into discordian date representation.
This page can be accesses here. You can call another page with parameters and you only will get the ddate output back:

Oh dear. Another hyped protocol/platform from Google… oh wait. It’s not from Google. It’ all started in Xerox PARC…
There are several papers that describe what Google now claims to have developed…

“”Being a geek means being so interested in something that you don’t care whether or not it’s cool.”
THE SOCIETY FOR GEEK ADVANCEMENT was founded upon the principles that we should all embrace our inner and outer geek and have fun while doing it. As individuals who love learning, innovating and believe in possibility as well as change, the second step of responsibility is to “be the geek that keeps on giving”. As a member of SGA, we work together as a global community to provide the tools and help others realize their true potential too!”

A feature of my harddisk video rekorder is to take screenshots. So I took around 900 video still shots in the last two years. I had some minutes to take a look at them and found a real gem:
So on 23rd of May 2008 JC Flowers obviously wanted to pay EUR 22,50 per Hypo Real Estate share. As of now this same share is worth EUR 0,66 – What a difference a year makes.
I am not a fan of Guns’n’Roses – but this deal is a steal: Dr Pepper betted that the band won’t get their new album released in 2008. If they would release it in 2008 every US citizen would get a free serve of Dr Pepper.
