copier phreaking

I do not visit copyshops anymore, but I am quite sure that during my phone phreaking student years, I would be interested to know that one can have fun with copiermachines as well... Not by copying your private parts, but by tweaking them (the machine parts, not your private ones!)

IBM = cool

In the blue corner oposite of redmond we have the company that invents, the company with stamina, the company that reinvents itself, the company that is kinda cool, the company with a vision. I have got three letters for you...

floppy raid

Why? Why not?
I had just set up my 2 firewire drives and thought, "Can I RAID USB Floppy DRIVES"? I happen to work for Y-E DATA which is one of the worlds largest manufacturers of USB Floppy Drives, so I have access to these things. I had just been going through a pile of returns testing the drives for failure. There are always a few that are fine though, so I got 5 of them for this very important scientific feat.
//usb raid floppy drives?

Is google the next root DNS?

The DNS structure is known by most of the readers of willy I quess. How delegation from the root to toplevel, domain and below works is well documented, in //RFC's and in "//readable" text and as a //wiki as well.

It has been criticised as well. Even up to the point of having //alernative DNS structures.

None of the alternatives I have seen are as creative as the one from Jeremy, forget the browser as a way of getting a new DNS structure (remember Realnames before MS //killed it?)

Google, //the next DNS?

TeraByte

Google goes to //1 Terabyte for a //mailbox! That is incredible, what will it cost?
