3/7     NIT here we come
        \_ So if we win the whole thing we can go "We're #65!!!"
                \_ NCAA tourney is not the top 64 teams - more like
                   top 32 and 32 lucky shmoes from tiny noname conferences.
                \_ The NIT winner has been ranked #1 in the nation before.
                   \_ but that was like 50 years ago when it was more
                      prestigious than the NCAA tournament; hardly
                      relevant to the discussion at hand
        \_ Looks like the game against Fresno State won't be on TV.
           Does anyone know if student section tickets are available?
            \_ It might be on Fox Sports Bay Area, check schedule
            \_ It is on FSBA at 7:30 p.m. also student tickets are
               available for $5 at the ticket office till 4:30 pm. go
        \_We win! T 6:30 @ DePaul next.  On ESPN, too.

3/6     Monica Lewinsky is my Lady Macbeth
        \_ oh, I thought she was one of 'dem witches. well, in either case,
           intelligent woman becomes evil temptress. -nick
           \_ where's thes "intelligent woman" in this case?
        \_ More like 'Lolita'.  Monica is hardly an evil temptress.  She was
           and still is a child.
                \_ Years or stone?  -John
           \_ hmmm. 13 versus 21-22?
                \_ Don't confuse chronological age with maturity.  BC had 100%
                   control of the situation.  As the Pres. he could've shipped
                   her out of the WH in a split second.  She was there bc he
                   wanted her there.  When she got annoying, he had her kicked
                   out.  The evil temptress thing is ridiculous.  Lolita is
                   much closer to the real story but without any love or
        \_ Buy her book and shut up.
        \_ Her mother made her money by having a torrid affair with a
           Dutch industrialist and writing a tell-all book.  I guess
           you could say the family is just passing on oral traditions
                   concern for the child as seen in L.
           \_ I dont know which would be sadder: If she "really" loves BC, but
               still put him through all that garbage. Or if she planned
               this whole thing to get fame, but will now be laughed at her
               whole life.   Given the pathetic taped phone conversations,
               I'd say the first is more likely. But If the second one
               were true, she'd still be laughing all the way to the bank.

3/7     Stanly Kubrik died. What's with all these famous people dying recently?
        \_ it's known as "mortality".  Get used to it.
          \_ I've noticed a lot of activists are dying early.  Must be the CIA.
                \_ famous people have been dying as long as there have been
                   famous people.  you just weren't paying attention before.
                   \_ Too many too young.  Mostly of cancer.  Maybe it's
                        because the cancer epidemic is covered up?
        \_ KUBRICK
        \_ Stanley Kubrik was simply one of the most overrated movie directors
           of all time.
           \_ kubrik was a genius.  we can only lament that he made so few
              films in his lengthy career, but he worked on each film long
              and with great care to make it reflect his brilliant vision.
           \_ 2001. The Shining. A Clockwork Orange. Full Metal Jacket.
           \_ no, Speilberg is still alive
              Spartacus. Lolita. Dr. Strangelove. And that's only half of it.
              \_ the killing, a killer's kiss, paths of glory, barry lyndon...
                 paths of glory is quite possibly a better war movie than FMJ.
                                                 -kubrick fan
           \_ No, he was a pretty cool director.  A bit weird, yes, but it's
              a shame nonetheless.  -John
              \_ He was a total inspiration.  He used to make his living
                playing chess homeless in Times Square.  He'd read mountains
                of books on whatever film he was doing.  Meticulous,
                exhaustive, a fucking genius.  Read Jeremy Bernstein's
                "Essay's Out of My Mind" for a good piece on Kubrick -jnat

3/8     Some older accounts have incomplete manpaths, they should be:
        If you don't have this, man www, etc. won't work.
        \_ No, actually, you should just not have a MANPATH.  Remove any line
           that says setenv MANPATH in your .cshrc or MANPATH= in your
           .profile/.bashrc.  --dbushong
           \_ how does man know where to look for pages, then?
                \_ we told it where to look (read 'man manpath') -- root
                \_ does this apply to path as well?
                   \_ The default system man search path is in
                      /etc/manpath.config  The "default" csh path for you
                      is probably what got copied into your .cshrc file
                      from /usr/share/skel/dot.cshrc (if you have a new
                      account) or something funky otherwise.  A good setting
                      is: (. ~/bin /csua/bin /usr/local/bin /usr/bin /bin)
                                \_ NOT!  Drop the dot!
                                   \_ if you insist on having . in your path,
                                      you should at least put it at the end.
                      \_ UM.. I did ___NOT___ put "." in the path when I made
                         that post.  Please do not edit other people's posts,
                         especially when they are signed.  --dbushong
                         \_ I did *NOT* post this. --dbushong
                            \_ PGP signed motd entries again, anyone?

3/8     World's fastest graphic renderer - PSX2
        \_ droool
        \_ FYI Sony up +4 at closing
           \_ Because they are trimming fat in a reorg
              \_ True that.

3/8     Joe DiMaggio RIP.  Bummer.  -John
        \_ "Where have you gone, Joe Dimaggio
            \_ Where did you go, Joe Dimaggio?
            A nation turns its lonely eyes to you...
            What's that you say, Mrs. Robinson?
            'Joltin' Joe has left and gone away'"

3/8     Does soda have nslookup?  If not, can somebody install it?  (No, I do
        not have the time to install it myself).
        \_ is /usr/sbin/nslookup what you're looking for, or maybe just 'locate'
        ? -ERic
          \_ thanks mehlhaff.  /usr/sbin was not in my path.  Still adjusting
                to FreeBSD...

3/8     Soda stock tip of the week:  CMGI.  It's red hot baby!  Up 47 1/2
        today.  Get in because this is the next EBAY!
        \_ get in now and your sure to lose your shirt, todays Internet stock
           rally was good news for the whole sector, but these specific
           stocks have seen their high for the immediate future. Beware the hype!
        \_ Yes.  Get in now that it's up 30%.  Makes sense.
        \_ Yet, another overvalued stock.
        \_ Makes me think that this guy has tons of options waiting to sell.
        \_ Makes me think that this guy has tons of CMGI options waiting to
        \_ CMGI closed at 199, EBAY closed at 171, why would you go out on a limb
           and speculate that CMGI will be the next EBAY when it's already
           worth more?
