I've been programming since my early teens and like so many of us, I started Basic on the usual home computers like Atari 800XL, ZX Spectrum etc. "Turned pro" about 20 years ago.

I've been mostly doing C++ during this time, writing anything from device drivers for various operating systems to trading systems for banks.

comment Is it possible to grow a volume in a Mac OS X partition?
I've tried to clarify my question above - basically I have resized the sparsebundle to take advantage of the bigger disks in my new server, but I don't see any way of growing max size of the volume inside it. Maybe I'm missing something and it'll do it automatically, but is there a way of doing it manually?

comment Need a non-Mac keyboard alternative for Mac users
Heh. They aren't cheap but they do seem to last a long time. I've got two of them dating back from about 2001 and they're still working fine. I expect a few more years of use out of them!

comment How safe is building a computer yourself?
@Jon, I don't find that it takes that long to build up a computer if you start with good components. A regular desktop shouldn't take much more than 1/2 hour or so. Granted, I do have some practise doing that but I don't build that many computers anymore. The part that tends to annoy me is the time spent installing software but I'd have to do that in any case. That said, the five minutes it takes to get something like an iMac from "boxed" to "working" are hard to beat.
