comment what's POST code 18 / can I run an ASRock P55 Pro + Core i3 530?
Thanks! I've found a sticker on the BIOS chip that says "P55 Pro P2.20-15A", and according to the CPU Support List, BIOS version P2.20 should support the CPU. I wish I had another CPU to try, but I don't. I'd actually be willing to buy an i5 instead, but what if that doesn't help either? Damn, why can't one update the BIOS without a CPU?

@dnkb: pre-sorted files are of no help when both files are too large to fit into memory, because you still need random access on one of them, which means endless HD thrashing. You need a grace or hybrid hash join en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hash_join - but any remotely professional RDBMS will implement that. Your time is probably best spent trying to get the MySQL based solution to work.

@Hasaan: Either you are not a Java developer, have never used eclipse or have completely bizarre ideas of what constitutes common knowledge. This is an internal problem of eclipse and certainly nothing that every Java developer can be expected to know.

comment How to convert Html files to Pdf?
Well, if you interpret "100% accurate" to mean "exactly as rendered in a specific browser", then you can most definitely get that.

comment Hosts entry for a fileserver don't work, why?
Because there's something wring with your hosts entries, or your "quick tests". If you show the details of those to us, we may be able to tell you what is wrong.

comment USB-to-Parallel adapter rated as USB 1.1 - will its driver lower speed of USB 2.0 bus?
@cumminjm: I see. No, that should not be a problem - especially if you connect it directly to the PC, since each USB port is usually a completely independant host. But it should even be possible to mix USB 1 and 2 devices on an USB 2 hub without adverse effects.
