7/5     I'm thinking about buying a computer from Dell-Outlet online. Has
        anyone had any experience buying refurbished computer from them?
        please email me for any input. -bkong
        \_ Buy DELL!  It's good stuff.  Think of used Dells as the
           certified pre-owned Lexus of computers.  They really clean it
           up and have it working.

7/5     Damn tradition!  If it wasn't for people trying to appease older
        people who don't like to change because their brains have rusted
        into place, we'd be learning shorthand, not cursive.
        \_ What are you babbling about?  We'd *not* be learning shorthand.
           What a stupid ass lame idea.

        \_ jeehosephat. If this guy's theories are true, it looks like
           Yoda was right. The Force is everywhere. Or at least the memory.
           Then again, he first published 10 years ago. Why has noone
           made news about this since then, if it were verifiable?
           \_ His results were NOT verifiable, and in a later issue of NATURE
                his results were refuted and he was made to look pretty
                stupid.  He complained about the methods used to test his
                results, but ultimately nobody really believes him. -drex

        Your friend the Darwin Effect whale.
        \_ document is not there.  suscription required?
           \_ Weird.  It was there 2 seconds before I posted the url.  Anyway,
              this guy hide out in the marine world park until after hours and
              sneaks into the killer whale tank to go have a swim with the
              kw's.  His body was found the nexy day.  No chew marks but was
              pretty dead.
                \_ The story is also here:

                   \_ thanks.

7/6     Do you guys know how Jon Denver died?
        \_ plane crash
                \_ Which one? Delta? Southwest?
           \_ more specifically, he was an amateur pilot. he fucked up and
              crashed his one-seater.
                \_ Wasn't he flying an experimental aircraft as well?
                   \_ Yes he was, it was obviously a conspiracy.

7/6     This is a pretty dead horse, but since telnet will be gone soon,
        why can't sshd be set to listen to the now defunct port 23 for
        those of us behind lame-o firewalls?  Maybe I'm missing
        something... but it seems like a no-brainer solution.
        \_ that would keep people from using S/Key
        \_ your firewall isnt nearly as lames as those that only
           allow the telnet _protocol_ by use of annoying proxies.
1999/7/6 [Health] UID:16084 Activity:kinda low
7/5     Has anybody tried those protein shakes that GNC sells to build
        muscle?  Do those drinks really work or are they more of a placebo?
        \_ yes
        \_ It's up to you to turn that protein into muscle. It may become
           fat, too! They work if you do! --dim
        \_ Protein is protein.  Eat meat everyday and you'll get lots of
           protein, too.

7/6     Currently I'm FTPing to soda from my PC at work and everything is peachy.
        Will that stop working after July 15?  If so, what should I do?
