Anybody here ever read "The Odyssey"?

I'm doing a Social Studies project on it-I have to make a map, and mark Oddysseus' route on it, and then write information about every stop.

I recall reading it many years ago, though I can't recall any specific details except for a whirlpool and the singing sirens.

It only has ~400MB of internal memory, AFAIK, so that seems rather high.

I'd guess about $300-400, just based on the fact that the components are from HTC.

Or IIS if you want to be able to serve ASP.NET pages.

Out of interest, does IIS include SQL Server?

SQL Server is expensive. You can use SQL Server Express, but that's rather limited. I prefer MySQL.

On another note, I love when the text in my signature that says "Something big lies on the horizon for Paint.NET" has so many meanings. I just want to spill my beans sometimes.

I'm pretty sure everyone already knows that a big CodeLab update is only days away from release. :wink:

Yeesh, he's not even TRYING to blend in with this era, is he??

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

The stuff I know would blow your mind.

I'm ... I'm amazed.

Ash, I have no doubt that, given the time, you could.
