9/14    Why has soda's load been so high lately? I can't play games!
        \_ too many h0zers!
        \_ %0 %0 # run this and your shell will change to /csua/adm/bin/sorry
           \_ what does this do?
        \_ They should first learn Visual Basic, and then move onto ASP,
           and Visual C++.
        \_ Everything in here is wrong except the bits about
           "what", "play", and "many".

9/13    So once again, does anyone know the side effects of dexadrine?
        - oh and yes, bitch, I am CVSing this motd.
        \_ Whats the point of cvs'ing a single file?  -ERic (who has been
           rcs'ing the motd for months now)
        \_ Whats the point of cvs'ing a single file?  -ERic
           \_ I know what this does (send me porn passwords), but can someone
              give a formal definition of what is going on here?
        \_ is your ADD so bad you can't do a web search for dexadrine and
           side effects?
           \_ I don';t have add you stupid fuckin gmororn.` and if you
              can't understand why I'm taking it then get the fuck out
              of the machine.csua you've been calling your world.

9.16    Searle's lecture is on what is pain, thursday, 2060 vlsb.
        \_ pain is reading the motd seriously.
        \_ I suggest watching Harvey's cs61a lectures on the web. If she's
           might help her learn to program.
                   \_ perl is a sucky beginners language, because there are
                      disgusting
           \_ no, pain is taking searle seriously.
        \_ Isn't Searle the guy who claims that computers can never
           be sentient?  I remember a section in Hofstader's book,
           _The_Mind's_Eye_, which talked about AI, the Turing Test,
           and other such subjects.  There was an argument attributed
           to Searle (maybe a different guy than the one giving the pain
           lecture) in there claiming that since computers only do
           "formal symbol manipulation" they can never be intelligent.
           I thought this argument was  pretty lame. -emin
           \_ yes, that's Searle, and yes, it is.  -tom
              \_ it's a fork bomb
           \_ the majority of searle's arguments sound impressive when he
              presents them on the bbc but are actually pretty damned lame.
        \_ Everything in here is wrong except the bits about
           "subjects", "formal", and "taking".

9/15    Free 3' x 3' square table by the volleyball court by soda.
        wooden finish.  it's a year old.`

9/13    I accidentally typed "mal" when I was going to run "mail".  What
        does http://www.objectshare.com/VWNC do?  --yuen
        \_ is your ADD so bad you can't do a web search for dexadrine and
           side effects?
        \_ I'm bad!
                \_ Is that before or after putting it in the microwave
        \_ i believe in the power of scheme!
        \_ Huh huh... he said, "free pussy..."
         \_ uh no.  he said free cat.  reading isn't your strong point is it?
        \_ it's just a stupid shellscript. Read it and figure it out
           \_ What? You can watch lectures on the web?
              \_ Yes, go to http://bmrc.berkeley.edu/bibs for general
        \_ i believe in the power of scheme!
        \_ Huh huh... he said, "free pussy..."
         \_ uh no.  he said free cat.  reading isn't your strong point is it?
        \_ I'd suggest PDP-6 assembly language, preferably toggled in
                 information regarding the webification of several courses.
        \_ You need to tell the computer that you definitely want
           these messages off.  "chsh -s /usr/bin/yes".
        \_ Everything in here is wrong except the bits about
           "shellscript", "read", and "does".
1999/9/15 [Computer/SW/Languages/C_Cplusplus] UID:16523 Activity:very high
9/15    Is there a good online reference for passing pointers to functions
        in C? The C book I have is inadequate on the topic.
        \_ yes.
           \_ no, pain is taking searle seriously.
                 |_ lol
        \_ Everything in here is wrong except the bits about
           "pointers", "inadequate", and "topic".
           \_ I see trouble brewing...
        \_ Find a copy of Peter van der Linden's Expert C Programming: Deep
           C Secrets. It answers all the C questions you never thought you
           had. -alexf
           \_ "the Butt-Ugly Fish Book!"

9/15    Hey has anyone heard of a BW film dev process called NP22?
        I have some film i bought in another country that says ISO 125/22o
        and am trying to find out if it cane be developed here. --psb
        \_ "another country" == india?
        \_ Try calling Looking Glass on Telegraph.  They probably know where
           you can send the film to.  --- yuen

09/15   how would u transfer email addresses from an access database to a
        majordomo listserver every day? - turin (ie: ftp? or something else
        kewl i am missing?)
        \_ how do you automatically upload a file without being prompted
          with username and password via ftp?
          \_ .netrc . I wouldn't recommend it, though. --dim
           \_ pirate. way to go!!
                        \_ The Man is watching.

9/15    RFI- I'm trying to write a quick prototype driver for a windows
        based pen-input device.  I have my choice of M$ OSes (95, NT, or
        WDM w/ 98 & 2000), and my primary concern is choosing a development
        path that won't screw me over later on.  Again, this is just a
        prototype driver, so extensibility, compatibility, support for
        plugnplay, power management, NSA encryption standards and the like
        take second place to simplicity and having a not-so-steep learning
        curve.  If the code's already written, I don't want to do it again.
        Any opinions, tips for newbies, references, book reviews appreciated.
                        --mjm
        \_ Have u taken a look in the NT or 95/98 DDK?  It contains
           sample source for drivers for many diff. type of input and
           networking devices.  Available only w/ msdn subscription.  Email
           me if u want a copy.  --sky
           \_ A copy of MSDN? Or the DDK?
              \_ DDK.  its ~ 30 megs.  MSDN is like 50 CDs
           me if u want a copy (of the DDK).  --sky
        \_ if the interface is USB, you want 98.  Otherwise, as you look
           a natural conclusion -jctwu
        \_ I'm doing a similar thing... how easy is it do this under Linux?
          \_ scp
           a natural conclusion -jctwu
        \_ Any pointers to a solid, readable, extendible driver for Linux?
             \_ Any pointers to a solid, readable, extendible driver?
        \_ Yes, but I agree with what appears to be the consensus in what
           I've read elsewhere- it's poorly put together and hard to use.
           Does anyone have comments on Numega's Driver Studio?
