11/13   Does anyone know where The Original Mel's is?  Like the cross-streets and how long
        does it take from Soda Hall and what's the fastest path by walking? Thanks! - John
        \_ On Shattuck - right across from the library, right next to the
           movie theatre - for a map, see

11/13   Chicago Bulls lost last night to Miami Heat.  YES!!1!
        \_ Hee hee, this sounds like it has sexual undertones.
           \_ You twick fisted suck.
         \_ You squick fisted twink.
        \_ Am I the only one who doesn't "get" the new Michael Jordan perfume?

11/12   Okay, I'm a dork.  Where're we supposed to download MSIE to get
        MS to donate $1 to the tech museum?  --tabloyd
        \_ MS has a horrible web site for low bandwidth connections.  I
         wasted several hours trying to get it, and only eventually got a
         version that wouldn't install.  If anyone has IE 3.0 for 3.1,
         could I please get a copy?  (Didn't have these problems
         w/Netscape...) -cathyg
         \_ Funny, I managed to download Netscape 3.01 and have it
            not do everything right.  Guess their implementation of
            the Java Virtual Machine just won't go with i386-unknown-bsd
            architectures.  -- tmonroe
            \_ Oh, it's buggy, but at least it installed. -cathyg
            \_ I put a copy in /tmp/msie301mnt.exe,mailnews.exe,amov4ie.exe
              - Gabe
              \_ uh, you guys don't get it...the idea is to make MS spend
          dough, not to actually use their product
         \_that's why I want the URL!  -- tabloyd
           \_ I looked at //, but unless you have a
              t1 and a sophisticated browser, it's not worth
              your time [maybe for 95, but not for 3.1] -cathyg

11/11   Did anyone tape the Tyson/Holyfield fight, or have Showtime?
        (They'll be rebroadcasting it Sun at 8:00, but I haven't got
         ST... It'd be fun to see the fight though!)  -- Marco
        \_ Who won?
           \_ It's only worth watching if holyfield won (and he did)
           \_ clinton
        \_ I taped it, but the reception was relly bad so it's
           black-and-white.  It's your only chance to see Tyson really get
           his ass kicked. -Benny
           \_ at least until they release "America's Funniest Prison Videos"

11/11   Shameless job advertising in /usr/local/csua/jobs/NetForce
        At the moment we need sysadmin-types, but there are many
        positions available. - pmcnab
        \ chmod it!
          \_  Done.  Been a long week already. - pmcnab
