11/10   [context free url deleted].  Look people, I can't click on the motd.
        The motd is not browser compliant.  Put in some brief one line
        description of your url if you're going to bother at all.
        \_ Use netterm. Can highlight text and if it's URL, can launch.
                \_ Uhm. No.  I'm not going to change my working environment
                   so others can post context free URLs I may not have any
                   interest in in the first place.  Thanks for the tip,
                   though, but I dumped netterm because it was lame.
                   This is a context-free problem, not a UI problem.

11/10   Does anyone know if the 100MHz SDRAM is compatible with non-100Mhz
        bus?  The reason I ask is because I need to buy new RAM for my
        overlocked 83MHz bus w/ P250 CPU and I prefer not to spend money
        on traditional 66MHz RAM that is practically obsolete.
        \_ I don't know if they're compatible, but don't see why not.
           Since RAM standards are going to change before you can upgrade,
           why do you care?  You'll be buying Rambus DRAMs soon enough...

           \_ suggests that Rambus isn't all its
              cracked up to be.
        \_ 100 MHz SDRAM will work.  I frown upon non-66, non-100 system
           bus frequencies. :( Yer peripherals are choking. -jctwu

11/10   I have a large .txt file with data in it that I want to open
        in excel. In order to do that, I need to delete all the
        carriage returns from the file. Whats the fastest way to do
        \_ If you have Word, you can search for returns ("^n", I think)
           and replace them with nothing, or a space.  Most word-processors
           should do this, but I assume that if you have Excel than you
           also have Word.  - mikeym
        \_ eh? you want to remove CRLF (PC returns) or just CR?
           Last I remember Excel imports fine with CRLFs.
        \_ as common an operation as this is, you'd think they'd put in a
           quick point'n'click operation to switch betwen unix and dos
           end-of-line format. Oh wait, this is a microsoft product -- there
           are no valid non-dos formats. -ERic
        \_ echo `cat infile.txt` > outfile.txt  -- yuen

11/10   Does anyone here know if Solaris 2.6 for x86 has support for
        Ultra 2 scsi?
        \_  Check the HW compatibility list.
