9/9     Got awesome 4 br house in Belmont (in hills). Need 1 more person.
        3 current residents are CS professionals. Mail ali if interested.
        \_ isn't that just couple of blocks from oracle?
        \_ "CS professionals".  How depressing.
           \_ Better than the term "young professional." WTF does that
                \_ It means you're under 40 and get paid to do non-blue
                   collar work.

9/9     Any of you gung-ho eecs types want to try and help me fix
        a Gauntlet II arcade game? -ERic
        \_ Can we put it in the CSUA lounge when you're done?
          \_ technically it belongs to a guy at my work. I suspect it'll
             wind up next to wired digital's stargate game. -ERic
        \_ Did ERic get the Gauntlet II machine for his birthday?
          \_ no. -ERic
          \_ He got your sister.

9/9     On my linux box when I run netscape <DEAD>localhost<DEAD> or when I
        telnet/rlogin into my own domain name it doesn't seem to work.
        But when I dial in using ppp both of those seem to work.  I don't
        get why you have to have a ppp connection in order for
        <DEAD>localhost<DEAD> or telnet myname.hip to work.
        \_ You probably want to put localhost and your hipname into your
           /etc/hosts file.  See hosts(5) and soda's /etc/hosts.  --mconst
        what does this mean? /                  --stupidQuestionAsker
        \_ One of these (depending on version of man):
           % man 5 hosts
           % man -s 5 hosts
                \ $ man 5 hosts
                  $ No entry for hosts in section 5 of the manual
                  \_ get a better os
                  \_ get a MANPATH

        Does anyone know about afterstep on the HPs and Solaris machines?
        I haven't found them locally & don't have the quota space to install.
                Thanks -noah
        \_ You mean the ones in the Soda labs? - it's on the Solaris/x86
           machines, but not the HP's - mail root@cory for more info.
        \_ no aferstep but there is wmaker which looks as good.
           read docs in /usr/sww/GNUstep/wmaker
