        \_ Yeah?  So what?  Some idiot is selling a book based on bad
           research with highly questinable conclusions.  Why should we care?

8/10    Anyone know where slocal on EECS instructional is located (or procmail)?
        \_ Anyone who reads the help docs on www-inst.eecs or in /usr/pub does.
           \_ Tried that. /usr/pub/ said to look at man pages and
              man pages say slocal is located in /usr/lib/mh which it's not.
                \_ pasteur is a solaris machine, read the man pages on one
                \_ You don't need a path for your .forward - it will find it
                   on it's list of allowed binaries and run from that path.
                   \_ No, that just gives you:
                         ----- Transcript of session follows -----
                         sh: .slocal: not found
                         554 | slocal... unknown mailer error 1
                        \_ Did you remember the quotes?
                           \_ yup, tried that too.
        \_ Incidentally, does anyone find it weird that torus.cs and
           pasteur.eecs both have MX records pointing to each other?
                \_ Not anyone who understands what the MX records mean
                   (think failover and redundancy)

8/10    Why doesn't Arizona use daylight savings time?
        \_ Hawaii doesn't either.  No farms in Hawaii or Arizona?
        \_ And why does the Navajo Nation do?
        \_ Why is China all one time zone?
        \_ Why should they?
           \_ So that it'll be in sync with most of the country, I'd think.

8/10    How do you set up IP port forwarding under Linux 2.2.  All the docs
        point to the 2.0 kernel and ipportfw doesn't exist anymorei under
        new distributions?
1999/8/11 [Industry/Jobs] UID:16290 Activity:moderate
8/10    The thread below brings up an interesting question for me. I've
        been out long enough now to see several folks' resumes. I see a
        pattern of a couple of years' spin-up through stuff like QA,
        benchmark programming and sysadmin jobs before people hit
        "real" developing jobs. Leaving aside the matter of wunderkids,
        do people find this pattern consistent with their experience
        after graduation? -ulysses
        \_ Why is developing considered more 'real' than sysad?  I get paid
           more than most developers and work less for it, mostly.  -sysad

8/11    It's late, and I just saw marc andreeson in a miller lite at with
        norm macdonald.  Did anyone else see this, or am I hallucinating??
        \_ I saw a similar ad too. scary.
        \_ I saw it last night too! BTW, "great taste"
        \_ When Linus drinks Miller, I will too!!!  RIDE BIKE!

8/11    Im trying to compile the makedoc.cpp file for the palm and it
        doesn't work. Any helpful ideas?
        \_ script
           cat typescript >> /etc/motd.public
           In other words, what's the problem?
           \_ nevermind......fixed it. but thanks anyway.

        \_ Are you hot?
          \_ She's 2 hot 4 u, b4yb33.  So get a life.
          \_ Decide yourself:
            \_ Definitely hot, time to go to emeryville.
               \_ you have liberal tastes.
               \_ There's never a good reason to go to emeryville.
         \_ You're all fucking hilarious.
            \_ The question is, which of these posts was written by chaos?
                \_ all of them.  she's totally psycho.
                   \_ Maybe but she's still hot.
                        \_ And you've bothered her, so now she's all
                           hot and bothered.
        \_ Will you percussion my thing?
          \_ She's 2 hot 4 u, b4yb33.  So get a life.

8/11    Anybody have experience filing a personal injury lawsuit?  Car
        accident related?  I'm thinking of doing that would appreciate
        any pointers to books or web sites that guide you through the
        paperwork.  Thanks.
        \_ ED!  ED!  ED is the STANDARD!  Personal Injury Lawyer.

8/11    On the off chance that anyone is familiar with such things
        I'm having a hard time trying to understand the implementation of
        the algorithm for division of large numbers presented in Knuth.
        This is largely due to an ambiguity of the order of "Set; test for
        this and that; if true, do something else; repeat test if a third
        thing is true."  (Repeat once or many, and which steps?)
        Section 4.3.1, Algorithm/Step D3, if you can help.  Thanks.  -calbear
        \_ Dude, you are one boring man.
                \_ What's the matter, INDUSTRY MAN? Don't have the brain to
                   understand Academia Man?
                   \_ FYI, it is industry and it's not because it's my area.
                      (If it were, would I need to ask?)  -calbear
        \_ Walk on over to Don's office and ask him. Tell him I sent you.
           He'll know what to do. -ali.
           \_ No one's ever there, but when there is, I'm sure your reputation
              will precede you, Ali.  Anyway, I wrote him about the ambiguity.
