12/8    Apparently some idiot is going around calling soda users, telling
        them he's root@soda and that he needs their current password.
        root@soda would never do this, and if you're stupid enough to be
        duped by this guy, your account will be shut off.

12/9    What's the lastest news on that Atari Jaguar(before any chucks $250
        plus tax)?  Saw it at the Good Guy's.  The rep. said the shipment
        for preorders coming Xmas Eve.  Anyword of third party games...or
        is Atari gonna choke again?
        \_ lastest news on rec.video.games.misc is that the Jag is crap,
            but what else do you expect frtom Atari? I'm waiting for
            the 64bit sgi/nintendo vr machine comming out in xmas 94
        \_ What exactly is 64 bit on that machine?  couldn't be
           64 bit color... that'd be 2x10^19 colors... 64bit processor?
           that sounds like overkill.  I think it's a lie.
           \_ The data bus to the display memory?  High resolution/color
              live action video needs bandwidth.
        \_ No CD = no where to store detailed graphics = really
           fast stick figures. Yawn.

12/9    Anybody know of a good book on Unix network programming?  --SMurF
                                       ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
        I believe that there is a book by that name...  -- marco
        \_ There is.  It and another good (but expensive) book called
        "Advanced Programming in the UNIX Enviroment" were written by
        Richard Stevens and are highly recommended. (Adv. Prog. isn't
        all that advanced.  If you've had 60b&c and know C pretty well
        you're probably ready for it)
         \_ yes, both are excellent reference texts. I highly
            recommend them. --vchang

        been installed in /usr/local/bin --jules
        \does nsquery do anything nslookup cant do? if not, why not delete it?
        what is nstest?
        \_ *chuckle*  you know, *we* don't install those tools... -- cgd

12/7    There is some sort of showing of a work in progress of a movie
        of the book 'Neuromancer' at Mills at 9pm on Friday.
        Anyone interested in going with me? -danh
        \_ Currently, we're thinking of pub trans... anyone drive? -marco
              \_ sparky's
        \_ anyone willing to risk the Payam-mobile can go with me
           \_ 1 space left
        \_ It is showing at 9pm at Mills College Concert Hall,
           5000 MacArthur Blvd., Oakland, CA.  Supposedly AC Transit
           bus lines 57 and 58 N stop directly in front.
           mail snol@mills.edu for even more detailed info.  -danh
        \_ Mebbe we should meet someplace in Berkeley so the AC Transit
           clueless (like myself) don't get hopelessly lost in Oakland.
           -sameer
        \_ I can pick up and take 1-2, or 3 really uncomfortably but,
           it's free and not that long a ride. -thorn
        \_  I'd be willing to drive a load out, too. --ERic
        \_  Anyone have enough room to give me and my email babe a ride? - danh
              \_ How fat is she?
              \-this a virtual babe?
        \_ I might be able to make it.  If so, I can drive people. -phr
        \_ if i can't find a spot in a car, i might offer a spot on the back
         of my Suzuki.  -hh
