1/29    Has anyone ran h2ph on /usr/include and /usr/include/sys?  I
        cant get perl5 to run perl code with socket cuz sys/
        doesnt exists.  Of course this could be the problem of the script
        but since I am helpless, I am just trying to weed out other
        causes.  I'd love to ran h2ph myself, but I dont have write
        permission.  Thanks for the help.  - perl clueless

1/29    Once again I'm begging for use of a video camera.  This
        is for a class project (Anthro 138B Ethnographic Filmaking) with
        two other people and will NOT i repeat NOT be used for any sort
        of porn, straight or gay.   (Not sure why I have to say this but
        for some reason you sodans seem to think I'm some sex fiend)
        \_ Yer filming me aren't you. What am I, a hermaphrodite?
           my grandiose body parts not naked enough for you?
        \_ So you're going to film yourself and other men of non-white
           ethnic origins having sexual relations?
        \_ porn for a female audience is known as "erotica" - danh
           \_ I'm male and I like "erotica".  Does that make me female?
                        - Gender Confused?
                \_ No, it just makes you tawei.
        \_ Cant you get one from work or somewhere?
         \_ If I could do you tihnk I'd be begging on the motd? -aspo
         \_ how about Good Guys?
            \_ "My gay lover and I bought this camera together to take sexually
                explicit videos of each other -- but he ran away two weeks ago
                to join the crew of a shrimp boat, so I don't need it anymore.
                Your return policy covers this, right?"
        \_ aspo, don't hide our love behind (heh) lies.  Tell em it's for us
           to record our deep (heh) love for all times.  We'll have B5 and
           Gayboy night at Nick's.  (No offense intended towards Nick).
           \_ Yeah.  You like the attention.  Go rent one.  Or buy one, use
              it, return it.  Or better yet, drop the class and get a life.

 1/29   If I add AutoLoader in Perl, does it still compile every single
        subroutine in one file, or only those that are needed during run-time?
        \_ It's not that simple; you have to prepare your program for use
          with autoloader... There are online man pages which pwill walk
          you thru it, or see some of the advanced perl books....

1/29    Hi.  We're considering buying a new car soonish.  We're trying to
        decide between the Honda Civic EX, the Accord LX, and the Subaru
        Impreza.  Any impressions/comments/suggestions?  Thanks...
        \_ sign your name, fool.  Anyway, the Subaru has AWD, useful
           if you want to go skiing without chains. -legacy owner
        \_ Honda Civic EX with 127hp and fuel efficient; plus you could get
           at around 15k...It's a very good deal...Now I just hope they sale
           Honda Civic Type-R here...
        \_ Chevrolet Suburban is good.
        \_ Got the Civic EX.  Like it.
        \_ The Civic and Accord are ridiculously overpriced, like all
           the vehicles riding the 'resale value' wave.  The market always
           collapses, leaving the wannabe yuppies riding them holding the
           lease and lein payments.
           \_ The Civic is probably the best of the small cars.  Good mileage
              isn't built like crap, relatively inexpensive, etc.  The
              Accord is an overgrown Civic with a price to match.  Dont do it.
        \_ essential site. Check the used prices to see resale
           value as well.  -mogul
        \_ I recommend a Honda Civic EX.  VERY gas efficient and good engine
           power out of this car.  With today's inflated gas price, it's
           very economical to drive a Honda Civic.
           \_ HX has even better milage.  (Manual version goes 44mpg!)
              And it costs less than EX.  You don't get that many horsepower
              and bells & whistles as EX but I think that's only a small
              penalty.  -- yuen
                \_ Got anti-lock breaks?
        \_ You also might want to look at the Saturn.  ("Ia Ia Saturn

1/29    What does stalk do?  Is there a man page somewhere?
        \_ man page is in /csua/man.  Put that in your MANPATH.
        \_ Secure TALK.  really.
