04/20   I need to burn a CD that will be compatible with the most
        operating systems possible. Of particular importance are Linux,
        MacOS, and NT but more than that is better. Should I use ISO 9660
        filesystem or something else? --dim
        \_ ISO 9660 is the way to go  -wombat
           \_ With Rock Ridge extensions? --dim
              \_  Yes please. Standards are good things, sometimes.
              \_ The good thing about standards is that there are so many
                 to choose from.

04/20   RIP Linda McCartney
        Goodbye Linda, we'll miss you!
        \_ Why couldn't it have been Yoko Ono instead?
           \_ Because the chances of breast cancer increase when you're female
           \_ Why did McCartney fall for an older, uglier, Japanese woman?
                \_ since when was linda mccartney an ugly japanese woman?
              \_ Is it me, or do non-Asians with Asian fetishes tend to go
                 for uglier asians anyway, so us Asian guys have nothing to
                 worry about?
                 \_ You're both insensitive pissheads.  Try *being* ugly
                    for a month before throwing such insults around.  Besides,
                        anyone with at least 1/4 of a brain knows that
                        attitude and confidence make the person sexy.
                    \_ Seemed to have touched a nerve. Maybe I should poke
                       at it instead.
                    \_ So you're not only ugly, but you appear to have a
                       bitchy attitude and a confidence problem (otherwise
                       you'd be letting random insults in the motd slide on
                       by . . . )  Wow, three strikes.

04/19   Nestea.c: takes down linux 2.0/2.1 and NT4.0SP3 hosts that don't
        have teardrop2-fix patch applied.  NT4SP3 hosts with td2-fix applied
        are apparently unaffected but no one has posetd results of proper
        \_ There is, however, a patch to Linux.
        \_ This ain't no sippin' exploit
        \_ It could have been worse, it could have been another drink called
         \_ If I love one x of type t, do I then love all x of type t?

04/20   I read a while ago about an organization that ranks charities on
        efficiency.  I think they gave the percentage of each dollar
        that goes to bureaucracy.  Does anyone know a URL for this
        information?  -mikeym
1998/4/20-21 [Computer/SW/Languages/C_Cplusplus] UID:13988 Activity:high
04/20   I'd like to have C/C++ macro which would replace any comma
        seperated list of variables with an expression which uses those
        variables.  For example:
        DO_SOMETHING(a,b,c,d) becomes=> expression a,b,c,d
        DO_SOMETHING(a,b) becomes=> expression a,b
        In other words, I don't know how many variables may be used ahead
        of time.  Any ideas?
        \_ Just what we need, wannabe C programmers want to write stuff
           the langauge doesn't support.
        \_ Use Perl, you idiot.
        \_ this problem is a trival one.  just make your DO_SOMETHING
           a function that takes varargs.
           \_ Thought of that, but it needs to deal with declarations.
              Also, I'd like to be able to expand MACRO(x,y,z) to be:
              A::x = f();
              A::y = f();
              A::z = f();
              Where x,y,z are static const members.
        \_ What about instead of D(a,b,c,d),
           #define DO_SOMETHING expression
           Then you can just use:  DO_SOMETHING a,b,c,d
