3/3     Fuck the MOTD, fuck up forum for gutless fucks to voice their
        meaningless opinions.
        \_ .hushlogin and fuck off asshole.
        \_ Sticks and stones, y'know.
        \_ And your point?

        \_ I hear ya'.  The past couple motd's have been less entertaining
           and more staticky than usual.  Such it is.

3/3     Where can I get color scheme for emacs(.emacs) for perl?  My
        scheme is ugly, and I dont have a clue how to change the color
        after loading hilit19.  Thanks.  - clueless
        \_ Font-lock >>> hilit19.  It has defaults for perl mode as well.

3/3     The Lewinsky interview made me cry.
        \_ you must be a girl or a fag
        \_ Lewinsky really let herself go after the affair.  It looked
           like she put on 50 pounds.  And what was the deal with those
           horrendously fake eyebrows and the helmet hairdo?

3/3     Does Berkeley still give out AB for L&S or do they call it a BA
        now? I know a few years ago it was an AB (comes from the French).
                   \_ are you sure it's french and not latin?
                      \_ Let's not start with the Latin.
        \_ My diploma from 1997 says "Bachelor of Arts"
           \_ Mine from 1993 also says "Bachelor of Arts", but the short form
              is AB not BA.  -- yuen
              \_ And where do you find the short form?  I couldn't find
                 it even on my transcript.
                 \_ The L&$ guide to earning your degree
                    \_ on the L&S web page, it says AB.

3/4     Does anyone know what OS Sony will use for Playstation 2?
        \_ Rumor is linux at least for the development platform
           \_ I heard linux too but that wouldn't make sense to put it a
              Playstation since linux isn't a real-time embedded OS and
              has way too many capabilities for a game system. Why not
              \_ Actually, at the company I used to work for we stripped
                 down Linux so that it would fit into ~15MB and run
                 on 8MB Ram.
                 \_ PicoBSD!  Now if I could only get it to run... -John
                 \_ Years ago linux ran happilly on 4MB ram machines all
                    the time (as long as you didn't run X)
                    \_ Our stripped down system was running X.
                       \_ You can run X under 4MB if you have enough swap;
                          I did that just for fun, though I wouldn't try
                          running much more than 2 xterms.  QNX proves you
                          _can_ have a responsive WS in much less if you're
                          willing to try hard. -- schoen
              \_ no fuckng source (unless you want to pay lot of moolah)
           \_ Didn't Sony have its own OS for game machines called Aprios or
              Aperios or something like that?  Or is that OS already dead and
              they have decided to switch to something new?  -- yuen

3/4     Someone told me that all pesto sauce is is just olive oil, basil,
        and parmessian.  But I can't seem to get that deep green color
        I see in restaurants. Any advice or pointers to good pesto recipes.
                                                ^recipes^restaurants --psb
        I bet this is the first cooking question ever asked on the motd.
                \_ You lose your bet.
        \_ the necessary ingredients are BASIL, OLIVE OIL, and GARLIC.
           the pine nuts and parmesan are optional, but damn good.
        \_ you need to chop up the basil pretty finely and combine that
           with less finely chopped basil; the minced part gives the
        \_ did you try actually chopping up the basil, oil and cheese
           (pine nuts and anchovies are also good to add), in a
           blender?  thats the way to do it.
           \_ Actually, I've found that a blender incorporates too much
              air into the pesto, due to the action of the blades.  In
              my experience, this leads to a lighter green color.  A
              food processor (or chopping by hand) is a better way to
              get the deep green color.  You might also want to bruise the
              basil leaves beforehand as well.  --sowings
        \_ You don't necessarily need the cheese, BTW.
           \_ Parmesan is good afterwards.
        \_ pine nuts?  hello?  garlic?  hello?
        \_ did anyone think to advise FRESH BASIL?  hellllooo?
           \_   um, i guess we assumed that much...  if you're dumb enough
                to try to make pesto with non-fresh basil, you don't deserve
                the wondrous glory that is pesto.

3/4     Anyone with experience with both WinGate & WinRoute? How do they
        \_ install FreeBSD.  use natd
                \_ Idiot.
                   \_ Fuck you.  OK. Install WinGate and give me your
                      IP address so I can bounce all my packets off you.
                      \_ You're an idiot for providing the unix answer to
                         someone who wanted a windows answer.  Get off your
                         Your WinGate concerns were already covered by a later
                         comment making it clear Wingate isnt a serious answer
                         so trying to play a straw man argument as if I was a
                         Wingate supporter just because I find your netbsd
                         answer stupid and useless only makes you look like
                         a clown.  The original poster din't ask how to do
                         NAT or share a modem in the generic sense.  They
                         requested windows specific advice which you failed to
                         provide, thus, you are an idiot.  Why do I have to
                         explain things you should have learned in third grade
                         such as "always read the question"?  Enjoy your
                         religion.  Other will continue to provide useful
                         religion.  Others will continue to provide useful
                         answers while you flail around wasting everyone's
                         time with idiotic and useless replies.
                         \_ I have run both WinGate, WinRoute, and various
                            NT firewalls that do NAT both at home and at
                            work where I develop one.  WinGate and WinRoute
                            both have shitty performance, major security
                            holes, and terrible reliability.  My opinion
                            is that they both suck and that you are much
                            better off buying a $400 PPro running a
                            *BSD OS w/ natd and ipfw.  Thus...
                            install FreeBSD.  use natd.  Are you happy?
                            Now tell me, who's your daddy?
                            \_ What security holes in Winroute?
                            \_ You can't get a PPro for $400 (at least not
                               a complete machine).
                               \_ Well, you don't need a monitor for it.
                                  I am sure you can find one for that
                                  price.  But OK, fine...  Get
                      \_ Fuck you. OK. Give me your home address so I can
                         bounce my mallet off your computer.
                         \_ 2620 Hillegass Apt. 10.  Come right over
                         \_ It's the Compaq one. Don't touch the HP
                                  a complete K6-2  300 w/o monitor
                                  for $399.
                                  \_ Yes.  That was a real answer.  Don't you
                                     feel better now?
        \_ WinGate is a toy.  It's ok if you don't have a heavy load and
           aren't serious about it.
        \_ How about SyGate?
