in reply to What *nix do you recommend for a laptop?

MacBooks are nice, as many have already indicated, but it is hard to justify the price (for me at least) when I can find a Toshiba with a dual core cpu, 2 gig of ram, 15.4" display, ...etc for $599 on sale. It comes with Windows Vista installed, but you can just install over it. As far as what *nix I use, it is FreeBSD everywhere. :-)

[SwaJime]: Ran into an interesting piece of code today ...
[SwaJime]: select name,status, status2 from __ where status & status < 13 and status2 & 16 <> 16
[SwaJime]: I'm thinking that looks messed up. Sorry for OT ... but I know y'all are smart :-)
[SwaJime]: I expected items to not be selected if status was 0 ... but they were selected
[SwaJime]: any thoughts?
