11/1    Help! I am desperately looking for a place to live in one of the
         followin locations: Palo Alto/Mountain View/Redwood City/San
        \_ Good luck!

1998/11/2-3 [Computer/SW/Security] UID:14876 Activity:kinda low
11/2    IMAP service (finally) available on UCLink4.  See: for details.
        \_ It's been there for a while, but they only just announced it.
           Has anybody tried it?

11/2    I'm taking the Computer Science GRE next month. What are some good
        preparation books/materials I should buy?
        \_ DO NOT get "The Best Prep for CS GRE". Too general, and the test
           questions don't even resemble what you will actually see on GRE.

11/2    What is better, Adobe Illustrator 8.0 or Freehand 8.0?

1998/11/2-3 [Computer/SW/OS/FreeBSD] UID:14879 Activity:very high
11/2    What's the difference between a BSD derived OS and an SVR4 derived
        OS?  No, this is not a geek flame bait.  --geek
                \_ One is based on the freely-distributable codebase from
                   UCB, the other is based on code licensed from Unix System
                   Labs (formerly owned by AT&T, then Novell, now SCO).
                   SysVR4 folded in lots of BSD stuff though.
        \_ depends WHICH SVR4 derived OS. Solaris has lotsandlotsa
           BSDstuff. Main differences:
           * ps is different
           * df needs -k flag on SVR4
           * boottime scripts are different
          kernel wise... supopsedly, SVR4 does better IPC or something.
          \_ well it does IPC differently.  sysV is big on 'streams'
          \_ oh and the tty interface is very different.  ttyent vs. sgtty.
        \_ "ps -aux" (BSD) versus "ps -ef" (SVR4)
