2/1     I hear Foothill computer center just got a new color scanner for
        student use.  Does anyone know what the max resolution it will support
        is?  I have an 800 dpi scanner at home, but need at least 2400 dpi
        for some precise work I'm doing.  Thanks.
         \_First, it's only for the use of residents of Foothill,
           Stern, Bowles, or Slavic House.  Second, I believe the
           maximum true (i.e. non-interpolated) resolution is 600x600
           dpi.  (Tho I'm not sure about that--you can ask
           rescomp@uclink for more info)  -icrew

        Thursday, February 2, there's a Pulp Fiction event planned for the
        evening. If you want to come, we can organize rides, etc. We're
        planning on 7:00 pm at Pacific's California near the SW corner of
         go!) Please mail aaron if you're interested in going. --aaron
        \_Did anyone else find this movie brutally violent, racist,
          and homophobic?  What is its appeal?  I saw it and could
          not believe thamount of racist epithets and sickening
          bloodiness.  Explain its "brilliance," someone.  -wft
          \_  Have you stopped to think that the film is not racist,
           but the characters portrayed in the film?  The realism
         of racist characters portrayed in a film may be
         shocking to some PC dimwits, but you must realize that
         some art mimics life.  -mlee
          \_ If you think Pulp Fiction is "homophobic", you are a
         brainwashed idiot.  If I were homosexually
         gang-raped, I'd want to get Medieval on the
         assailants' asses as well, but that does not
         make me homophobic.  Maybe if you thought about
         the things you watched, rather than producing
         knee-jerk reactions in accordance with the way
         you've been programmed, then people might treat
         you like you had a brain.   -blojo
         \_ I don't think "thinking about the things he
         watched" is all that he needs to think about.  -mlee
           \_ Chill out.  If you like movies where blacks are
              constantly called "niggers" and gory brutality
              is treated as a laughing matter, then more power to
              you.  I was more curious to know what makes this film
              worthy of artistic acclaim by its advocates.  -wft
           \_ The problem here is that you are totally missing any
         and all significance that the film contains.  Your
         measly attempts to classify this film with the many
         other more violent, less intelligent films out there
         just adds merit to my beliefs that you have no mental
         capacity whatsoever.  When you realize that "blacks"
         call each other niggers in real life, then we can
         begin to have an intelligent conversation.  Please
         also note that Samuel L. Jackson, a very succesful
         actor, who could be in one of many roles, accepted to
         play the role of Jules, who is called a nigger and
         calls other blacks and even whites niggers, with
         pride and a lot of enthusiasm.  He also stated that
         Quentin Tarantino has not one racist bone in him.

              is hardly a place for this discussion.  -seano
