"After describing the situation, fixing it and letting him know what would happen if he did this, he stated the following: 'I did it to help speed up the network. You guys should have something that detects this anyway.' We said 'You're welcome' and awaited his next boneheaded move."

  • Flash

    Premium-Inhalt. When the World Wide Web became a mainstream communications medium, people quickly realized that visual appeal was important and, further, that animation attracted a lot more attention than static images.

  • Looking for the next great thing

    Premium-Inhalt. Part of every job is to have that job disappear. It happens for all sorts of reasons, some under our control, some not.

As 2006 gets started, we truly do stand on the cusp of something new.

  • High-speed databases rev corporate apps

    Premium-Inhalt. Relational database management systems have become all but ubiquitous in enterprise computing since 1970, when they were first devised by E.F. Codd. But as powerful and flexible as those databases are, they've proved inadequate for a handful of ultrademanding applications that have to process hundreds or thousands of transactions per second and never go down. Now, the very-high-performance database technologies that sprang up to serve these niche markets, such as options trading and telephone call processing, are poised to move into mainstream computing.
