9/28    Is there a way to get old Apple Laserwriters (like a IINT) to work
        with a modern PC?
        \_ Yes -- just hook your PC up to the LaserWriter's serial port.  You
           will have to flip some DIP switches or turn a knob (action taken
           varies according to model) to tell the LW which port and bit rate
           you want to use.  -- kahogan
           \_ If you have a truly modern "PC", just hook it up with LocalTalk
              boxes and select it in the Chooser.

9/28    Which is cuter, Totoro or the little teacup in Disney's Beauty and
        the Beast?
        \_Neither of them..they don't exist in my frame of reality...
        \_I'd have to say Paige O'Hara.  She sounds like one hot babe.
                          \_ Who is cuter?  Belle or Little Mermaid?
        \_ Esmeralda in _Hunchback of Notre Dame_ --
           the only worthwhile element of the movie!
           \_ There's some decent CGI

9/27    Dear Mr. EMACS: how do i get rid of the ^M's (ctrl m's) that
        appear at the end of every line in an emacs *shell* ?  (i don't mean
        the M-x shell-strip-ctrl-m command; i want the *shell* to not display
        this at all when i start to use it.)
        \-M-x edit-motd ... "emaul is the only supported [sic] interface to
        mr-emacs" --mr. emacs
         \_ Hi, Mr. Emacs.  Just to let you know, that the use of
          [sic] is only for misspelled words.  To use it
          for sarcasm is improper usage.  Please learn
          proper English grammar and mechanics. --pcjr
          \_ You are a dumbass.  Go do "dict sic" and
             read it.  "sic" is used to show that the passage
             is exactly reproduced.
          \_ You fool!  Everyone knows badmouthing Mr. Emacs
             is an invitation to have all your dotfiles
             translated to Latin!  How could you be so stupid?

9/26    Co-op position for spring semester for a cs major who is familiar with
        visual basic and excel.  Not a buff job, but good for a first time
        intern experience.  Oh, yeah, the company is HMT Technology.
        Mail me if you're interested.  -corinney

9/26    Does anyone have a set of 4 24-pin DRAMs for a Trident video card.
