2/15    A survey is given to 10000 Americans in a variety of industry. The
        question asks that if you win the Super Lotto, will you quit your job?

        1/3 of the people in art, music, archeology, teaching profession, etc
        said yes. Almost all of the people in high tech industry said yes.
        What does this imply?
        \_ that "high tech" is a lot harder than those other fuzzy jobs.
        \_ that "art" people are folks who take crap for pay because they
           like what they do. Therefore, them suddenly getting a decent
           amount of money, has no influence on what they want to do.
        \_ That 2/3rds of fuzzy people lack the imagination to do anything
           more with their lives than the shit work they do now?
           \_ let's see, the high tech people who quit to do world travel,
                write the Great American Novel, learn how to play instruments,
                go afar to learn about history, etc have less imagination than
                the people who already do these things for career? Very logical
                \_ Anyone see office space?  2 girls at once.  --sky
                \_ Maybe we went to a different high school, but none of my
                   teachers were writing the great american anything, playing
                   instruments, or travelling the world.  Your teachers wrote
                   great works of literature and travelled the world as a
                   career?  I'm in the wrong field.  What HS was this?

2/15    How hard is it to write an Expect script that logs into Soda (with
        valid writable tty), do mesg y, then write all the "unlogged wall"
        into a file? Is that hard to do with Expect?            -expect dummy
        \_ If you can type it, Expect can do it too.
        \_ You don't need expect: ssh -t soda "wallall y && sleep 86400" >log
           Or just run screen and leave walls on in one window.  --mconst
                \_ Don't give it away.  Let 'em learn something useful on
                   their own.
        \_ Just read /usr/local/csua/wall_log
         \_ are you blind? he said "unlogged wall"
