05/29   Due to some bug complaints in mh, which hasn't been maintained
        since before fire was invented, nmh is now the default. You can
        still access the old binaries should you experience a problem,
        via /usr/local/lib/mh/bin. Notify me if there are problems. --aaron
        For diffs, see
        P.S. slocal users may benefit from using the new version,
        in /usr/local/libexec/nmh.

5/29  Does anyone know who the Asian actress is in that Tylenol commercial,
      where at the end she gets on an elevator and says "Wish me luck!"???
        \_  She's a lemur.  --PeterM
           \_ she's a what???
                   \_ from Lemuria...

5/29  Stupid move by India.  Supposedly they're a year away from fitting
      a nuclear warhead to a missile.  Someone's gonna get nuked.  -mlee
      \_ Didn't Pakistan just announce yesterday they already have a nuke
         missile ready and aimed at India?
      \_ Meanwhile 500 people die in India from the heat.
        \_ and a couple hundred million others don't have enough to eat
           \_ Why do you think they feel such a need to expand? --dim
                \_ they don't go hungry for lack of land, the causes
                 are political
           \_ I can't think of a quicker way to get rid of excess population
              than a little nuclear war.  I say let them have at it!  We
              shoulda saved them the trouble and just sold them the nukes.
        \_ only 500?  In a country of 1+ billion, who noticed?

      Asking $2.5k.  Mail ari for details.
      \_ Good system. Seriously now, why are you selling it, filthy rich boy?
                \_ he's only rich because he cheats on his taxes
        \_ Only has a 20x cdrom.  I won't do with any less than 32x. -ari
                \_ shut the )(#$#. 20X, 32X, same difference, CDROM is only
                   used for install and seeing VCD/MPEG/pictures.
                  \_ I put all my d/l'ed gay porn on CD and reload them
                     over n over from my favorites collection.  -ari
        \_ Selling because I bought for my brother and he is not

      \_ and Phil Hartman and Barry Goldwater
      \_ ba.broadcast
      \_ I'm really disturbed about the "New" Live 105 starting next Mon.
        \_ A radio station's morning show "disturbs" you?  Get real.  Turn
           the dial.
      \_ what happened?  I've been hearing web fingers on KROQ lately
         and thought I was having flashbacks.. --karlcz
         \_ same company owned KOME and KITS, they sold KOME, radio people
            from KOME transferred to KITS.  most djs and all morning
            people at KITS fired.  KITS to start broadcasting
            Howard Stern's morning program on Monday.  web fingers
            took a job with KROQ.  - danh
                \_ HOWARD STERN RULES!
            \_ ahh, that explains it.  he toned down his santa cruz
               accent a little, but it's still nice to have a slice of the
               old country in this god-foresaken place. :)  --karlcz
       It's opinionated, but the facts are there.
       \_ What.  Ever.

5/28  job available at veritas doing testing for volume manager group.
      see /csua/pub/jobs/veritas.     -lila
      \_ "if you can avoid overdoing it on free soda, candy, and microwave
          popcorn" ... ARGH! Hey look, just pay me more.  I'll buy my own
          junk food, I promise.  Try, "we don't give you free food as an
          incentive to get you to work for lower pay".
          \_ finally.  people starting to get it.  Tho I bet you arent
            a newbie ;-)
                \_ You're right, I'm not.  If I can help even one person
                   see the truth, then I've done something good for the
                   world that day.
          \_ i never claimed the "free" food was a benefit...  :)  -lila
                \_ I'll refrain from smashing you since this pretty minor
                   but I will say that if its in the job description and
                   its clearly a selling point for the company then you
                   _are_ listing it as a benefit no matter what you call
                   it.   -feeling only slightly testy late friday
                   \_ you seem to have missed the "if you can avoid" part
                      of my statement.  i actually put that in only in
                      response to the recent motd discussion regarding
                      food at work.  but whatever.      -lila
                        \_ Good try.
