1/27    If you are interested in being the CSUA Treasurer, please come to
        the Politburo meeting at 5:30 PM on Wednesday in 337 Soda Hall.
        Thanks. --brg
        \_ Does CSUA treasurer get check-writing power? - starving student
                \_ Nope, just the power to write up tons of paperwork
                        begging the ASUC to write checks for us.
          \_ Don't get any funny ideas or you will disapear...
          \_ Its a felony after the first $400.  Kiss your freedom and your
             diploma goodbye.
             anal virginity goodbye.
        \_ You are allowed to use the CSUA phone to accept long distance
           calls without being an officer, though.

        \_ The king of Persia has hundreds of women around him. The prince
           of India has a very nice harem. The emperor of China has more
                                                \_ "has"? china hasn't had
                                                   an emperor for a long
                                                   time. --aaron
           women than the number of students in Berkeley. And I'm sure Sadam
           has a very nice private chamber too. What's wrong with the
           president of the greatest power in the world sleeping with a
           couple of interns?
           \_ they are ugly.  that's the problem.  thank you for your time.
        \_ The countries you named are all fucked up.  Thank God (or whoever)
           this country isn't yet that fucked up.
                \_ I think Bill should do as he pleases (Clinton and Gates)
                        \_ I agree, just not while representing my country to
                           the world as my President and leader.  Gates is
                           welcome to do whatever he pleases within the law.
                           Clinton must adhere to a higher standard while in
                                \_ but king, prince, emperor & sadam represent
                                    their countries and still do c00l things
                                   that most men dream of doing
                                        \__Go live in China or Iraq if you love
                                        their systems so much.
                                        \_ Yup and their countries are all
                                           *seriously* fucked up, as are their
                                           leaders.  Being a real leader isn't
                                           about having a harem.  Don't fuck
                                           over my country so you can wave
                                           your penis around, Mr. President.
                                           You want cheap whorish sex, go hire
                                           some prostitutes.  Not on my time,
                                           or my dime, Bill.

1/26    Compaq has bought Digital Corp. for 9.6 billion dollars check out,4,18440,00.html
        \_ I don't get it. Compaq is a very low tech, system component buyer/
           builder. DEC is a very high tech, leading edge company. What do the
           two have anything in common??!?
           \_ Nothing.  Now the merged company has both ends.  Got it?
              \_ $9.6 Bil for altavista?
           \_ Dec... 'very' high tech?  Not in the last 5 years.  They
              had to settle for NT when their market collapsed.  Ever since
              the alpha died a horrible market recption Digital has been in
              free fall from high-tech to no-tech.  Compaq got a raw deal.
                \_ Mabye, maybe not.  DEC was more than "the alpha company".
                   Time will tell of course.
              \_ DEC is still a 'high tech' company.  No one's beaten their
                 CPU, they've only matched it.  They've got other
                 technological shortcomings, but they're leading edge.--PeterM
           \_ Compaq's money?
           \_ The two have very little in common. It's a good match for
              Compaq, tho, as C's been trying to move into the higher end
              of the enterprise / server market... with Digital's sales
              and finance arms, Compaq might end up doing quite well.
                \_ Bull will crush you all.  -Evil Euro
        \_ okay, DEC sucks, CPQ sucks. Other irrelevant stuff erased.

1/25    Anyone know why I can not connect to soda using my ISP ?
        I have to leapfrog from another host to get here
        \_ Your ISP sucks.  And so do you if you expect help and don't
                give any useful details like what error message you get,
                what software you use, or what problem you have.
        \_ Your indenting sucks too.  I corrected it only so I could further
           insult you.
