4/27    Should I take CS186 w/ Wang or CS164 w/ Aiken next semester?
        I need a high grade in one of these classes, so which should
        I take? -- e-mail vlad@soda
        \_IMHO How 'easy' a class is should be irrevelant. If you need
          a high grade, you'll work hard.
        \_ DON'T take Wang!!
         \_ what's wrong with wang?

4/27    Someone has a 2.5-megabyte core file in /tmp which has been sitting
        around since 4/26.  Now *I* can't read news because the filesystem's
        full.  Why can't people be even slightly considerate?
        \_ This is soda, that's why.  Nobody gives a shit about what's in
           /tmp and so they don't delete it 'cause it's gonna get nuked
           eventually.  How often does the /tmp sweeper go through anyway?
         \_ Every week or so -- not nearly often enough.  Maybe we
            should have /tmp quotas too.  Say 1 meg soft, 10 megs
            hard or something like that.
          \-that is a stupid idea. look files have names attached
         to them ... just mail the person with a lot of old shit and
         tell them to delete it. cc: root if you want and if someone
         is incessantly a bozo, then root can send something stronger.
           \_ Something stronger you want?  Hmm...how
              about a little chsh or passwd gift?  Or
              maybe just an rm -r on the hoser's acct.
         \_ You twinks, /tmp is cleared of stuff not accessed in 3
            days every night.  Get a clue.

           112 gcc.1

4/27    will software installers on soda take a little bit of trouble to do the
        following ... cd into at least /usr/local/man/man1 and do an
        ls -l | grep $user and make sure your stuff is w+r and also there
        are many instances where we have both foo.1 and foo.1.gz ... figure
        out which one we *should* have and prune appropriately. tnx. --psb
        \_ As I said before, Partha, /usr/local/bin/man often leaves both
           around even when you started with just one.  Don't blame the
           maintainers.
