In the other corner, I have the Sapphire X800XL 512 MB, which, as you might figure out, comes with twice the memory of ordinary X800XL cards: 512 MB.

  • My home DSL link really is fast enough to make remote X acceptable

    Of course, running X remotely over a DSL link that's only medium fast doesn't measure up to running it over a 1G Ethernet network, much less the local machine.

  • Killed by Apple: Dark Sky isn't alone in Cupertino's Android app graveyard
