5/16    What is the best movie theatre in the Bay Area to watch Star Wars I in?
        \_ i heard yermoms house is THX compliant
        \_ Haven't been there, but try the new Century 25 in Union City.
           Opened last week. All THX screens.
           \_ Or closer to Berkeley is Jack London Cinema (in Jack
              London Square, of course).
              London Square, of course). Valorum gets voted out
                \_ Jack London sucks.  Drive a bit and go to a nice place like
                   Concord or Dublin.  If you're willing to be psycho about a
                   movie, then a 45 minute drive to have a better experience
                   won't kill you.
                        \_ I hear that Jack London doesn't have Dolby,
                           just THX. Emeryville I think is putting in the

Anakin was conceived by immaculate conception.
                           new Dolby EX for Star Wars. Jack London has
                           the best seats. Rumor has it that Corte Madera
                           is getting the new Digital Projector, and the
                           new Dolby, cuz Lucas watches stuff there...
                           \_ JLS seats suck.  Too stiff.  1000 Van Ness
                              seats rock.
                   \_ Dublin??  If you're out there, just go to Blackhawk.
                        \_ I'm closer to Blackhawk.  Dublin is better.

5/17    Tired of the marketing lies on microsoft's (or your competitor's)
        web site?   Put in your own opinions, for others to see!  ThirdVoice
        finally goes public with their software product. Check it out and
        come see the formerly secret new product I've been working on.
        <DEAD><DEAD>  The thirdvoice browser plugin is MSIE4 only, on
        NT/95 of course. -ERic                  Anakin wins the race
        \_ Discussion about <DEAD><DEAD> web site being designed by
                idiots censored by thirdvoice employees who don't want people
                       \_ not anymore
                to know that no one in their company can actually test their
                \_ dude, get a decent browser
                work.       Episode II is a love story.
                        \_ Just viewing the web page requires MSIE?  Your
                                web designers are complete idiots.  It takes
                                two seconds to put the style sheet inside
                                <!-- --> tags so it won't show up on browsers
                                like netscape 3. (See www.csua for instance).
                                This isn't hard or secret - it's recommended
                                in every guide to CSS style sheets.  Remember
                                designing web pages that are only usable in
                                certain browsers is the same as saying "Fuck
                                you - we don't need your business" to everyone
                                else - not a good way to start a company.
                \_ dude, get a decent browser   (Obi-wan kills Darth Maul)
                \_ Sigh... look, it's a new product, a new company, and I'm
                   sorry your old browser isn't supported.  I won't address
                   the censorship claim.  The motd is world writable and gets
                   regularly scrubbed by numerous people.  Your comments
                   regarding the tags have already been passed along to people
                   in the company who can do something about it.  I'm certain
                   it will be taken care of ASAP.  Thank you for taking the
                   \_ I'm using Netscape 3 - less than 3 years old, thank you.
                   time and effort to visit our home, try out our brand new
                   product and provide constructive feedback.  -reiffin
        \_ oh yeah, its MSIE4 only, on NT/95 of course. bleah
        \_ looks great in non-stylesheet browsers since they didn't hide
                the stylesheets in HTML comment tags.  Try getting some
                web designers who know what they're doing and how to test
                with something other than the latest versions.
                \_ Uhm whatever.  I think you missed the point.  Can you not
                   understand "MSIE4 only" and "NS coming soon"?  -not ERic
                \_ Hey, looks ok to me.  I dunno what crap you're running but
                   tough shit for using an ancient piece of shit client.  Join
                   this decade.
                        \_ FUCK YOU IT"S ALL ABOUT lynx
                           \_ I think the lynx client is still in the
                              'concept' stage.  You'll be the first to know

                              Third Voice with ERic)  Anakin wins the race
        \_ oh yeah, its MSIE4 only, on NT/95 of course.
        \_ I like the stupid banner ad on <DEAD><DEAD> that
                says "Click here to download the software" and that takes you
                to the same damn page when you click on it.  Perhaps your
                company should invest in testing.
                \_ And software engineers that can do anything besides MS
                   code.  But that's another story...
        \_ And of course, the coolest thing about ThirDvoice is it can make
            anybody's web page as full of stupid and inane comments as the motd!
           \_ Hey, let's make this MOTD thirdvoice-compliant!
             \_ duh, it already is.

5/19    Darth Maul kills Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-wan kills Darth Maul. Senator
        Palpatine, the future Emperor, is also Darth Sidious. Anakin is
        conceived of by immaculate conception. Handmadien Padme is really
        Queen Amidala in disguise.

5/17    MS Internet Info Server and Site Server vulnerable to hackers.,4586,2255919,00.html
        \_ Phew!  It's a good thing *I* run Apache and Linux, because I *know*
           that neither of *them* have *ever* been found vulnerable to
           hackers!  Never!  Ever!
Senator Palpatine is really Darth Sidious

5/17    PLEASE clean up your old crap in the /csua/pub/job dir!

           owned by root.
Darth Maul kills Qui-Gon.
                \_ root would be happy to help you with this problem.

5/17    I missed X-Files.  Can I borrow a tape from someone?  -chiapet
        \_ Anybody notice that Scully was thinner and prettier in X Files
           the movie than in the last few TV episodes?  I think she put
           on some weight.  --ano x-phile
                \_ tv makes her look a little plump, but in reality she's
                   really rather skinny.
           \_ Scully used to be quite attractive, but now she seems to
              have taken on a more *star* attitude. Her clothes are too
              stylish/revealing and she is wearing too much makeup. I
              personally prefer the *geeky* Scully of past years.
                \_ I love the new slutty Scully.

5/17    So anybody paid 500+ bucks to watch Star Wars this weekend?  How
        was it?
        \_ And please no spoilers (even fake ones in jest, please).
           \_ It was NOT in jest. Gawd damnit! Quit deleting my spoilers!
           \_ Darth Vader becomes a cute little kid.
              \_ Obi-wan kenobi becomes an obnoxious twenty-something loser
                \_ Yoda's still older than dirt & looking like a muppet
                  \_ "When 900 years old you reach look as good you will not!"
        \_ SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The Chronicle's "Little Man"
           has been encased in carbonite for all eternity,
           according to sources close to George Lucas.

5/17    Support Gas Out day tomorrow.  Bike or take public transport.
        \_ was it that gas rose +7 points in the consumer price index
           or that the CPI rose 7 points because of high gas prices?
           (yes, the CPI is the reason everyone is screaming inflation now)
           \_ oil and gas contributed to most of CPI increase.  That was
              expected.  Anyone can tell you that gas prices were sky high
              last month.  The big question is, has the market discounted
              a likely increase in rates?  Will Big Al send the market
              into a tail-spin tomorrow?
