In Topic: Anyone out there understand Codeset Translation?

08 February 2003 - 12:34 AM

Lot's of people use codeset translation.

As I recall, the basic concept is that if your client machine and your server are using different codesets, then you need conversion.

So, if you had a Chinese version of windows but a US version of Unix, then any Chinese characters you entered would come back incorrect. On a Chinese O/S with Chinese windows, there isn't a problem.

That's the basics of codeset translation as I understand it.

PROIV has supported multiple codesets for years.

Does anyone know the hourly rate that Saddam is paying ?

I've heard that the rates are pretty good but the trips home are few & far between.

Also - from what I've heard, Saddam will 'take care' of your relatives too.

Sounds like a sweet deal.

In Topic: 100 % CPU Utilisation on Windows NT server.

On earlier versions, this could be because a client PC has disconnected without logging off. This causes the server to loop.

Fixed on later versions of 4.6

What a bad idea. That will take all the fun out of the forum.
