Hi listers,

I find myself working with more an more strangely written documentation, 
so I decided to buy an english technical dictionary. Some googling 
indicates that the "McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical 
Terms" is the most complete reference, but they don't seem to have a 
CDROM version. And browsing through 2,000 pages to find something is not 
exactly my dream idea of a weekend:)
Anyone knows/can recommend a good reference dictionary for technical 
english? With a CDROM version.

Ever wanted to fix something on your mom's old computer without actually 
driving 10 miles to do so? Or change something on your Pentium 1 test 
webserver without connecting the monitor?
Then you might wanna try TightVNC (http://www.tightvnc.com). Free, 
open-source, cross-platform, fast, very easy to install and setup. Just 
connect, type the password and it's like you're in the front of the 
remote computer.
