Just because you're necessary doesn't mean you're important...

It Could Be that the Purpose of Your Life Is Only to Serve as a Warning to Others.

If by universal healthcare you mean government controlled healthcare, no thanks. Nothing the government touches works out good. Unless of course you think veteran and military hospitals are run well.

I don't see anything wrong with having a gun for self defense. We can't and we shouldn't rely on the government to protect us. The government failed to protect the citizens of New Orleans after Katrina. They were left to fend for themselves.

Regulating gun laws doesn't help any. Those that want a gun to do harm will break the law to get a gun. Adding more laws won't do any good.

I didn't read the entire thread. But, it's just the internet. Don't let people upset you. It's not worth it. People talk alot of smack when they are behind the safety of their own computer.

Back to the topic, I like historic sites. I really want to go to Normandy sometime in my life. Any place I can go to reflect on the sacrifice that was made is what would interest me.

If I am understanding your setup correctly, the static ip's should just need to be on the same network id as the router. Find out what the ip of the router is. Router documentation should say what the default ip is. If not, the simplest way would be go to a command prompt and type in "ipconfig"

The default gateway address is your router. In most cases, you should have a 192.168.x.x address, if not, specify what it is. The first 3 sections of the ip will be the network id, make sure that those numbers on your static ip's match the numbers on the router. For example if the default gateway is, then make sure the static ip addresses are 192.168.1.x Then assign x a static value(between 2-254). If the other 3 get their address through dhcp, make sure the static addresses are outside of the dhcp pool.

I am pretty proficient in C++ and Java. I know that most progrmas could be written in either language. My question for those of you who have been out there for a while, do companies tend to use one programming language for certain types of programs? For example, is C++ typically used for larger applications and Java used more for web based programs?

I tend to like working with Java more, but am not so interested in web development(seems a lot of Java jobs deal with using JSP and servlets). Do I need to choose the type of programming I want to do, then go with the language most widely used, or is it feasible to choose the language I want to work with and be able to get into the type of programming I want?
