11/1    /usr/local/bin/perl now points to perl 5.003.
        If you haven't yet, now would be a good time to make your scripts
        perl5-compatible or change the first line to "#!/usr/local/bin/perl4"

11/3    Hi, I'm too embarrased to ask the local pharmacist, but...
        I've been to different pharmacys and couldn't find any
        contraceptive pills. Where the heck are they located? I've always
        thought they're off the counter.
        \_ "the pill" is not OTC medicine. visit your doctor or Planned
           Parenthood. if you're too embarrassed to do that, you're not
           mature enough for sex. --aaron
         \_ Thank you, Dr. Ruth.
         \_ Way to be sensitive, aaron! ":/( --joeking
        \_ Listen...don't listen to people putting you down like that.
           The bottomline is that you need a place that will provide
           you counseling and information on the Pill.  It's a big
           decision to make, one reason it's not an OTC medication.
           Although Tang is _not_ the most highly reputed medical center,
           it has a fairly good women's clinic.  In order to get a prescription
           for the Pill, you need to be examined by a medical professional
           who can then talk with you and decide on the best birth
           control pill for your body (yes, there are several different
           kinds of birth control pills out there).  Make an appt
           at Tang Center, Planned Parenthood, or your ob/gyn.  --christine
           \_ Tang's a pieceashit.  They charged me for condoms that I
              bought for my house.  A lot.  I got some pretty hilarious
              looks in the pharmacy waiting room when the counter guy heaped
              a couple hundred of them on the counter for me, though.  -John
         \_ There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Comdom -ausman
         \_ Or you could by them at your local drug store for three
            times the price.  Would you rather deal with that?
        \_ "The Pill" can have nasty side effects, especially if you smoke,
           so they require you to talk to a doctor first to make sure it's
           not going to kill you.  (The odds of it doing so are slim, but
           with as many millions of people as take it, that would end up
           being a couple thousand dead people a year.)
              \_ PLEASE STOP -- the notion of soda geeks having sex is just too
           revolting !  :) :)
         \_ Welcome to 1996.
         \_ We are breeding like bunnies as part of our plan to
          take over the world!
        \_ If you are too embarrassed to go to Tang, Planned Parenthood
           will give you good, supportive, contraceptive services on a sliding
           fee scale. -ausman

11/2    Is there anything called a .vacation file that autoresponds to any
        e-mail you get and tells them you'renot there?
        \_ look at procmail. the man page includes a trivial implementation
        of vacation. -aaron
         \_ Welcome to 1996.
        \_ "man vacation".  You make a hook to vacation via your .forward file.
        (actually I just checked. soda didn't seem to have a vaction page).
        Find the page on soda or try on another machine.  My manpath may
        just be screwed up.
         \_ Soda's "man" command is screwed up - use gman instead.
        \_Thanks.  Found it on beer.  Soda doesn't have a man page for it.
           \_ That's because soda doesn't have the vacation software at all.
         \_ I don't have access to beer.
          \_ so find another computer with vacation - almost
           every UNIX (except Dynix) has it...
