The only thing you need to check is that your computer has a built-in Ethernet connector. I'm going to use Ubuntu Server 7.10 for this project. Our Goal Once you have followed this document, you’ll have a working Web server onto which users can safely and securely upload files via ftp.

9.2. math — Mathematical functions This module is always available. It provides access to the mathematical functions defined by the C standard. These functions cannot be used with complex numbers; use the functions of the same name from the cmath module if you require support for complex numbers. The distinction between functions which support complex numbers and those which don’t is made since most users do not want to learn quite as much mathematics as required to understand complex numbers. The following functions are provided by this module. 9.2.1. math.ceil(x) Return the ceiling of x as a float, the smallest integer value greater than or equal to x. math.copysign(x, y) Return x with the sign of y. New in version 2.6. math.fabs(x) Return the absolute value of x. math.factorial(x) Return x factorial. math.floor(x) Return the floor of x as a float, the largest integer value less than or equal to x. math.fmod(x, y) Return fmod(x, y), as defined by the platform C library. math.frexp(x) math.fsum(iterable) math.isinf(x) math.isnan(x)

Top 10 Warranty-Voiding Hacks @neverbeenback: As was said down below in the comments, many warranties state that you can't change the OS to something 'not approved' which is generally a few versions of windows. Wether or not the company *actually* voids your warranty is up to them. edit: hackintoshing is vaguely illegal as well, so I can't see Dell being psyched to help fix your hackmac @freedomweasel: You miss the point, you would be expected to return the laptop to windows before return as using the restore discs is always the first thing to do to remove the chance of software problems, if they easily diagnose a problem then they often tell you to remove your HDD before return , so again YOUR WARRANTY IS NOT EFFECTED. Hackintosh is not illegal if you own an OSX disc, you are just breaking an EULA which means with proof Apple could sue you for it. @neverbeenback: jailbreaking an iphone voids the warranty. "your warranty is not effected" affected, not effected.

6 killer utilities for redlining your gaming rig Just as there's more to racing than showing up at the drag strip, there's more to gaming than booting up your rig. Smart players spend time tuning, tweaking, and pushing their systems' capabilities, reaping the benefits of a better gaming experience as a reward. The results are impressive, with games that look and perform better than their developers ever intended, and often the users didn't have to spend a dime. To get a piece of this action, roll your hot rod into the software garage and give these half-dozen tools a close look to improve the speed, control, and capability of your system.
