3/24    Obligatory monthly request for decent ISP.  I'm in San Ramon.
        I'd like a decent 33.6 connection.  I don't care about web space,
        shell access, etc.  I just want clean net to Berkeley and the
        rest of the world.  A few bucks this way or that isn't important.
        \_check out LanMinds (<DEAD>www.lanminds.com)--they're<DEAD> quite good.
          (And their dialup number in San Ramon is 510-557-0601.)   --icrew
          LanMinds sucks!!!!!!!! took like THREE F*CKING days to get
          our ISDN connection back up after that power outage last month
          and when we first got our ISDN connection, we asked them what
          our SPID was and they said "What's that?"
        \_ You will NEVER get a clean connection to Berkeley due to Sprintnet.
           Get a clue, STUPID.
                \_ uh, I ftp from soda at over a hundred kb/sec. Seems pretty
                   clean to me. -- <DEAD>Mr.way-outside-of-berkeley.edu<DEAD>-domain
                   \_ But isn't it FUN to use AGGRESSIVE CAPITALIZATION and
                      call people STUPID, especially when you're being
                      ANONYMOUS???!???  I LOVE the SODA MOTD!!!!
                        \_ just a few bad apples set the tone for the motd.
                           we will nice them to death!!
                      \_ Be quiet rachel
          \_ Hmmm.. ok, service sucks but is the net connection good
             otherwise?
             \_ It would be, except they're clueless idiots and ended up
                actually slowing down their net connection through
                incompetence.
                \_ Implying that incompetence might have sped it up?  -pld

3/24    I know some Indian friends who are BIG AND BUFF like football players,
        and some even have blue/hazzle eyes. I sware they almost look white!!!
                                                 \_ swear
        Why are a lot of Indians like that? (this is a serious question!)
        \_ Mutations as a result of the massive radiation and pollution
           released by British experiments on the fusion reactor from an
           alien starship that crash-landed in the Ganges River valley during
           the winter of 1945.
           \_ That's right.  In fact, the reason that they decided to make
              India independent wasn't Gandhi . . . During the course of their
              experiments, they created a hole in the space-time continuum
              that threatened to SWALLOW THE ENTIRE BRITISH EMPIRE WHOLE!
              The only way to avoid this was to make sure that India was no
              longer a part of the British Empire.  That way, if the hole
              expanded beyond their control, India would be lost, but the
              Empire would be safe.  Hail Brittania!
                \_ is it just me or does the motd get dumber every day? -aspo
                   \_Would you like to see Brittania rule again, my friend?
                     All you have to do is follow the worms.
                      \_ Brittania rules the waves!
