1/22    Clearcase SUCKS. PureAtria is full of dumb shits who really know how
        to market their sucky product.
                \_ it doesnt scale well unless you have great clue in
                   implementing it.. if implemented correctly it scales
                   well beyond dozens and dozens of groups of about 100
                   users each.. w/ fault tolerance of everything except
                   the views (which can be done too tho not worth it).
                \_ I actually happened to have used clearcase and I think
                   that it's really good. Its scalability sucks (so dont
                   use it for a group larger than 10 people) but
                   otherwise, it beats all other revision control systems
                   hands down.
                \_ I don't know what either of you are talking about!
                   I used Clearcase at Oracle, with over 100 active branches
                   of development on 80 platforms around the world. The source
                   in excess of 800MB, and it rocked! stable+fast. I think
                   that you must be the dumbshit, if you haven't ever worked on
                   something larger than your last CS61B project, you'd know!
                   \_ You're at Oracle. 'nuff said.
                   \_ I took 60b and use RCS.  Am I stupid?
                        \_ Duh. Any VC system that doesn't scale from managing
                           1 file to 2 files doesn't deserve to be mentioned.
                           \_ I asked if you think I'm stupid.  The point
                              being, RCS is good enough for my uses.  Use the
                              right tool for the job.  Don't use a sledge
                              hammer to put a thumb tack in a cork board.

1/22    What was that program for M$ Windoze type machines that allows one
        copy playstation CDs without any special hardware (other than the CDR)?
        (I think WinCD, but wasn't sure if that was right).
        \_ You can copy cds with several recorders like CDRWIN, but you also
           always need to trick up your console with a mod chip, or other

1/22    where would i find documentation on the creation and use of a
        \_ Which newsreader?  Man <newsreader> would be a good start.
        \_ trn/rn:
        \_ Be careful if you share your killfile, you might start a VR
           universe by accident.. (if you think this sounds stupid, read
           the rest of "Idoru")  --dbushong
           \_ This sounds stupid.

1/22    Does anyone have a spare SCSI card they would like to donate to
        the CSUA?  mail secretary@csua
        \_ Can you use a VLB scsi card?  how about a nice ISA one? -ERic
                \_ PCI scsi 3 card only.
                  \_ Well aren't we the choosy one.  Beggars horse choosers
                        gift-horse mouth.
                        \_ No.  It would just have been an unused card and
                           they'd still need what they need.  Clue.
           \_ Either ISA or PCI would suffice.  We've not got VLB
              anything. -mikeh
        \_ can I get unsquished for donating a SCSI card?
           \_ no.  you were squished for being an asshole.  donating a piece
              of hardware to get unsquished would create an elitist monetary
              oriented culture where assholes with hardware could be as they
              are without fear of squishiness.  The csua has done ok without
              your scsi and you and would be worse off with both.
                \_ the person who wrote that obviously was not squished.
                   After all, how the hell did he write to the csua motd?
                   \_ On someone else's account.  Obviously.
                \_ Hey, hey, now, let's not get pissy. Politburo would be glad
                   to relieve you of your SCSI card, but we just won't
                   unsquish you. Remember - "We're petty and vindictive, so
                   you don't have to be." -root
                   \_ That's cool.  Take his hardware, but don't unsquish
                      him for it.  The sell-out query was lame though.

1/22    Pre-planned foodP tonight at Plearn tonight at 8pm.  Plearn's
        located on the south side of University Ave, between Shattuck
        and Milvia, by the UC Theater.  A bunch of us are showing up,
        you're welcome to join us -- the more the merrier! --chris
        \_ gee, that's what recruiters always say.
           \_ surprisingly enough, there was no mention of Taos anytime during
              the dinner conversation.  well, except for Saar, who brought
              it up, and was promptly hushed.
                \_ I liked the part where Chris discussed blow job techniques
                   in detail.
                   \_ No -- that was YOU, you FAG.
                        \_ Only so far as to say how well her different styles
                           worked on/for me.  She's a good cock suck.
                           \_ You would know, you FAG.
                                \_ If I was a fag for enjoying her cock suck,
                                   then either she's a guy or I'm a lesbian
                                   in which case I don't have a cock.  Back to
                                   Basic Anatomy 1A for you.
                   \_ In your dreams!
        \_ RoboCop @ UC Theatre afterwards
