2/7    Spam King apologizes:
        \_ I'm gonna miss junk email!!!
           \_ As if (1) Junk E-mail will really go away if this guy does,
              and (2) the "Spam King" is really apologetic . . . just wait
              a little while for everyone to forget about him, and he'll
              be back with his "targeted" E-mail.
                \_ "I target my email only at internet users."

2/7     Sorry if this is a FAQ: Any clever way to convert MS Word files to
        html? Thanks.
        \_ use Word97 and "Save as HTML". If you don't have Word97, save your
           file on a disk, go somewhere that has Word97 and "Save as HTML".
           \_ Be forewarned that Word's save as HTML feature is as crappy
              as they come. If you don't mind seriously messy HTML, go
              ahead and use Word's HTML feature. But you may have to
              clean it up later if you ever want to edit it. -cdaveb

                           page off his homepage?

2/7     (To the person who kept erasing this question: get a life!)
        \_ You want to know how to do _that_ and you tell _me_ to get a life?
           Question erased for the safety of the net as no one needs anymore
           of that crap.  The net is clogged with enough shit as it is.

2/6     The roguelike game omega has been installed in /csua/bin for your
        enjoyment.  I hacked in a ".omega" extension for savefiles and turned
        setuid back on.  Please report bugs to me.  -- cm1ee

2/8     What does "complied with RSAREF" (or does not use RSAREF) mean?
        \_ See ""  It's the "RSA
           Reference implementation".  There are involved political and
           engineering questions surrounding its use or non-use, mostly because
           it's kind of slow -- but the algorithm is protected by a patent in
           the US, so you might get sued if you try to write your own faster or
           more specific RSA code for certain applications without a license
           from RSADSI.
        \_ If it uses RSA in the US, you need to use code licensed by RSA.
           For non-commercial software, that means RSAREF or nothing.
           Anything else is illegal.  (If you think software patents like
           this are stupid, go to and join them.)
           \_ Hey, this url doesn't work.  No DNS entry, friend.  Got a mirror
              or something?
                \_ Weird.  Guess RMS didn't pay the bill.  Anyways, try
               for now
                   \_ It's all kinda old.  Is this org still active?

2/8     How does one make animated text terminal sequences?  (If you don't
        like such things, you don't have to erase the questions.  I won't
        make any for you.)
