Ouch ! Torrentspy

Ouch ! It's a sad day indeed today when I tried visiting torrentspy and was greeted with this :

One can only guess the real reason behind the close but like they say it's been a wild and most often than not a wonderful ride. Good bye torrentspy.

Sles 10 Training

Just finished a three day training on SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 for some iperintis folks. It was a nice change of pace for work and the interesting thing that I found was the tremendous amount of improvements that the SuSE distro has undergone. From it's butt slow updater in the 10.1 version to today's zypper and tolerable updater, I must say I do not have to strain to see the improvements that the team has done. The students were quite impressed to see that installing opensuse and sles was even easier than windows and were just tickled pink over some of the tools that they were shown. This first training is for the fundamentals level while next week they will be going through the intermediate and advanced levels. Good luck people !

YUI datatables does not work for IE ?

I have been playing around with the datatables from Yahoo UI package for one of my customers. Much to my surprise though the code does not work for IE. I have been googling around for somebody reporting the same issue but so far I haven't found anything to the effect. I am just following the same example from the YUI site. On using YUI for my work, everything is good but then there are a few issues I am running into :

1. caching on the datatable itself does not lend itself to easy doing.
2. compatibility issues between browsers doesn't lend itself friendly to enterprise solutions.

Going to look more into this.
