10/9    What's the difference between backward-delete-char and
        delete-backward-char in emacs?
                        \-b-d-c is an alias for d-b-c. there are a few
                        "standard aliases" like beep for ding. Some of these
                        are for backward compat and will go away at some point
                        others are "blessed" aliases. --psb
                        \_ what is the diff between psb and pbs? Is the
                           former blessed in any way? -ali
                                \-percy bysse shelly writes better poetry
                                and psb writes better lisp. --psb
                                \_ There is no #1 pbs Fan.  --psb #1 Fan
                           \_ Public Broadcasting System, or Portable Batch
                                \_ Geek or culture.  Your choice.
                                   \_ Funny thing is, I'm not sure which is
                                    \_ We can safely assume that the Portable
                                       Batch System is _not_ a sign of high
                                       high culture.  You can figure out the
        \_ God I love emacs.  --dbushong
           \_ Thou art blessed, my child. -- God.
              \_ you're dyslexic. -- Dog.
                        \-b-d-c is an alias for d-b-c. there are a few
                        "standard aliases" like beep for ding. Some of these

10/9    Can someone edit the robots file for the web server and block
        EmailSiphon  before we get spammed. Its sole purpose is to
        grab e-mail addresses for spam
        \_ and what makes you think they honor robots.txt ?
        \_ Try wpoison instead (search on Yahoo); it generates fake pages with
           fake addresses to entrap spam robots that don't honor robots.txt.
           You can customize it to produce your own style, and it's death to
           many spam robots.  -- schoen
        \_/usr/local/www/conf/access.conf:AllowOverride AuthConfig Limit FileInfo
          go .htaccess
                \_ .htaccess has nothing to do with robots - just create your
                        own robots.txt file
                        \_ robots.txt is only required to be honored from
                           / at a site, not in each individual directory.
                                \hence my motd post. SPAM to  soda's been
                                a real problem and I will be damned to
                                make a toll call to get off the list.
                           \_ Buy a clue. Why makes you think spammers write
                              email harvesters that honor the Robot Exclusion
                              Protocol? Why would they?
                              \_ They wouldn't; I was correcting the person
                                 who said "just create your own robots.txt"

10/9    Anyone know what it's like to work at Plumtree?  Nice place, bad
        place, etc?  First, second, third hand comments and rumors all
        \_ ...was this a joke? oh, there really is a Plumtree! -jctwu
                \_ No, it was not, and yes there is.  I guess no one
                   knows anything about it?  They're supposed to be packed
                   with Cal alums.
        \_ Ex co-worker likes it there. -muchandr
                \_ Thanks!  Tha makes it 1:0.  :-)
        \_ I'm sorry, that information is all under NDA.
           \_ don't forget your non-competition agreement (lifetime of course).
