4/17    If you ever have problems logging into soda, please check the newsgroup for announcements of system problems
        before mailing root.  If there is a system problem, mailing
        root just fills root's mail spool once it's fixed and too late
        to do anything about it.  This and other useful information
        was in the FAQ file in your account when it was created.
        Please read it and remember it - if you lost your copy, a
        fresh one is always available in /usr/local/csua/FAQ.
        Asking root questions that it answers is grounds for getting
        really snide or obnoxious responses from root.

4/25    Join me in comin' out '97, today noon, on soda wall.
        \_ What?  You're going to leave Soda hall?

4/25    I need a way for a child thread to know that a parent
        has died. SIGCLD does the opposite, and I can't find the
        signal that does what I want. I ultimately would like my
        thread to die when my terminal is dead (ttyXX is unwrittable).
        \_ Use the uncle thread to inform the child thread.  Break the
           news gently, though.

4/25    I'm trying to get a cell phone in south bay area.  Any suggestion
        about which phone/what service should I get?
        \_ Wait 3 months, if you can.   Market should change a lot this
        summer.  Else, get short term committment.  C1 PCS might be best
        right now, assuming they are actually doing it.  -jor

4/24    "Remember, SCSI is not black magic. There are fundamental technical
         reasons why it is necessary to sacrifice a goat at midnight in order
         to get a SCSI device working properly."
         \_ maybe it's hard for people who don't understand the concept
            of a unique scsi id for each device
            \_ Um, speaking for those who actually have experienced SCSI
        chains that work _only_ when hooked up "incorrectly", SCSI
        voodoo *does* exist  --dbushong
