    Non-deprecated 10.9 framework for arbitrary-precision numbers? e.g. BIGNUM or GNU MP

    Technically openssl/bn.h is available, but all of openssl is technically deprecated! Of course there are vector-based big number functions, but those only go up to 1024 bits. While that's gonna be a mighty big number, for sure, it does not allow numbers of arbitrary size. I've searched...

    USB 3 card for MacPro...

    I recently bought a Micronet RAID drive. It came with a USB3 card of unspecified brand - and as near as I can tell, Micronet does not make it themselves. The included driver disk contained nothing useful, alas, and so I'm hoping that - if I know what brand it is - I might have a shot at...

    I've got a Mac Mini server providing a web site and VPN via the internet. I've got all the needed ports forwarded on my cable modem and most of the time it all works beautifully. Then every once in a while nobody can connect, even though the server seems to be running fine - and it (the...

    Is there a processor-independent vec_xor?

    vec_xor is the Altivec (G4 & G5) command to do an XOR on a 128bit wide vector. There is also an intel-specific instruction _mm_xor --- something. The vecLib is supposed to offer processor-universal instructions - and come on, XOR is about the simplest thing you can ask a computer to do...

    Funny: guy proposing on latest timelapse

    As of this morning (5/21/06) the timelapse movie on Apple's home page (showing the new NYC apple store) shows an amusing event a little after the halfway point. If you ctrl-click the QT movie & save it to your hard drive, you can step through at leisure. You first see the guy at...

    Can I make a 1st Gen airport base station act like a wireless adapter?

    In a nutshell... I currently have a nice Linksys 802.11 b/g connected to my cable modem. I also have an old first-generation Airport Base station (single ethernet port). I was thinking - wouldn't it be cool if I could connect the Airport Base station to the ethernet port of my videogame...

    Can you buy internal bluetooth for a G5 - not BTO?

    My G5 did not ship with built in bluetooth - but I was hoping to add internal bluetooth 'card' (or whatever it is) soon. I see no sign of any Apple internal bluetooth card anywhere on -- is there any way to get one?

    Prayers and best wishes to members in Texas and Louisiana

    I just read that Wall Street rallied on the news that hurricane Rita was downgraded to Category 4. :confused: What a total JOKE! Ask people in Biloxi or Gulfport how tame a Cat 4 is. I guess that's why those guys are stock traders and not meteorologists. Rita reportedly reached a...
