8/28    Now this is true csuaer dedication (worthy of danh's disturbed-mind
        award): http://www.CSUA.Berkeley.EDU/~keithyw/letter.htm
        \_ Wow, do a search on Yahoo for her and you come up with keith's
           web page as the first link
        \_ 5'6" and 150 lbs... quite the chunky chick.
           \_ that's not fat.  Look at the picture.  It's all muscle.
                \_ I said chunky.  She's chunky.  That's not a svelte chick.
                   C-H-U-N-K-Y C-H-I-C-K
                   \_ kate moss is unattractive anyway.  But the letter he
                      wrote is kinda funny, kinda sad..

8/27    What do companies like intel or mips do with all those defective
        chips or wafers that never make it to the shelf.  I want one
        just to hang up on my wall.  I'm sure Intel gets low yield with
        their one acre sized chips.
        \_ Intel made nice keychains out of the mistakes when they first
           starting fab'ing pentiums.  I think they sell the defective ones
           as geek jewelry now.
                \_ You can buy them at the Intel store in Santa Clara:
                   or online at <DEAD><DEAD>
        \_ I have a full wafer on my cube wall, but I can't take it out
           of the building.
                \_ Dilbert boy.

8/27    Does shost use a callback scheme to authenticate the host? I'm
        having problems doing an shost login through a firewall. Of course,
        I bet all those die hard security people are going to flame me
        for using shost now.
        \_ try an ssh -v.  It may be failing because it's trying to authorize
           the client's host key.  IIRC, to use shosts, at least with the
           config on soda, your client key must be in soda:~/.ssh/known_hosts
        \_ Some firewalls don't pass privileged ports properly.  Try "ssh -P"

8/27    Career Fare on 9/1.  Come check us out,  Compaq.
        Specifically, Alpha Development Group.  --ricky
        \_ Are they still deemed "fastest microprocessor in the world" or
           have they lost that title to Intel?
        \_ Compaq needs new talent badly to replace all the engineers that
                jumped off the sinking ship to go work for Intel & Sun.
           \_ They had actually lost it to HP (PA-RISC 2.0 8500), but they
              regained it again about a month ago with the new 750MHz chip.
        \_ If its any consolation, they just abandoned their NT on Alpha
           product, so you wont have to worry about working on that.
           \_ Why would anyone care about running NT on an Alpha.  You
              only get Alpha's cuz you want to make outragiously expensive
              Cray computers or workstations and such.  Seriously, what NT
              Alpha programs have you seen out there?
                \_3dsmax and other graphic rendering wares perform better on
                  alpha.  open mouth, insert foot, swallow, close mouth.
           \_ Funny thing is, internal message said "No more 32bit NT, but yes
              more 64bit NT."  And then, Microsoft said, "No more Alpha NT."
              Maybe we pissed them off.  --ricky
        \_ Hmm... Sun said they'd be here for "the Berkeley Career Fair on
                Tuesday, 8/31" (10am - 4pm, Student Union - Pauley Ballroom)
                Wonder who has the date wrong.
                \_ Neither one.  Different companies on different days.

8/27    Can I use ssh port forwarding to FTP to soda?
        What port do I need connect to at soda?
        \_ Yes, but you'll still need to login using S/Key
           \_ if you do it right, you do not need s/key
               \_How do I do it Right?

8/26    Should the change amount of a stock equal to the difference between
        the closing price of a trading day and the closing price of the
        previous trading day?  I'm looking at where today's closing price is
        higher than yesterday's but the change is negative.  Did I miss
        \_ Very good catch - Yahoo has incorrect data for Wednesday's close.
           Rite Aid actually closed at 22 7/8 on Wednesday, so the change
           was, in fact, 1 1/2 from Wed. to Thurs.

8/26    HOw do I save my contact list in ICQ? Just got a new home machine and
        don't want to request authorization from all these folks on my list.
        \_ copy your DB (or NewDB, depending on version of icq you're using
           from your old machine to your new machine.
           \_ What I do is first on new machine set up ICQ account with your
              ICQ number. Shut down ICQ. Copy DB/NewDB over. Run the database
              converter if necessary (newer version of ICQ, etc), and restart

8.28    This is old:
         Posted by Roblimo on Saturday August 28, @02:22PM EDT
         from the what-terrence-and-philip-do-in-their-spare-time dept.
         jd writes "Canada has just constructed an all-optical network, CA*Net3,
         capable of 80 gigabits per second (though being expanded to 20 terabits
         per second). This is over 60 times faster than the Internet 2 project,
         and according to the description, this will be open to the public,
         rather than closed as Internet 2 is.
        But once again proves why Canada is The Ultimate Socialist Utopia!
        Canada Uber Alles!
