9/29    This is probably a dumb question, but why don't .htaccess files
        work on soda? I am guessing it has something to do with web access
        loads and the such but I was just wondering if there was some sort
        of official reason.
        \_ They do work, but thre are some things they wont do.  What
           problems are you seeing with them?
           \_ Trying to do server side javascript includes and just simple
              password security. More just to see how they are done than
              anything else so it is not that important -fucking moron
              \_ I'm not sure about the javascript includes, but the password
                  security stuff should work if you get it configured
        \_ The official reason is that you are a fucking moron.  This
           is supported by your inability to sign your post
           \_ And where's your signature?
                \_ Hey!  That's not fair!  Don't bring facts into this!

9/30    anyone know of dsl specials with free installation and hardware
        going on right now?  (ones that don't require a 2-year
        commitment).  actually, any dsl recs would be appreciated.
        \_ Why the heck do you think a DSL provider is going to provide
           hundreds of dollars of hardware and equipment installation
           if you're not going to even commit to service for a long term?
           \_ "It's my right to have free everything so I can get high speed
              access to the free pr0n available only on the net!"
              access to the public information available only on the net!"
           \_ Because @Home is offering free installation, free hardware,
              no commitment, AND one month free.

        See /csua/pub/jobs/Siebel/l10n and i18n. -chaos
        \_ I have complete mastery of English.  Any open jobs for me?
        \_ I two have mystery of English.  I want job! Give me H1b sponsorship;
           I work for cheap.

9/30    Is it just me, or Norm McDonald (sp?) looks like Professor
        Aiken's long lost twin?
        \_ It's just you.
        \_ Howie Mandel
        \_ Actually, Aiken reminds me of a "hapless geek who gets his woman
           taken away by buff stud" character in a *really* bad porno that
           I saw once.  The resemblance bugged the hell out of me all
           throughout 164.

9/30    I'm 25 and I'm losing a lot of hair in the frontal area. Just out
        of curiousity. For people who have "bald-genes", at what age do
        they usually lose hair?
        \_ Huh-huh... he's losing hair in the "frontal" area...
        \_ Mostly gone by 28.
        \_ Some are completely bald by the end of high school.  Be glad
           you still have any hair left.
        \_ I suggest a hair transplant.  How much hair is left in your crotch?

9/30    I work at a router company in Fremont. I have this urge to steal
        toilet paper and whatever company supply I can find. Is this
        a particularly unhealthy behavior?
        \_ It shows you're unhappy working there and feel like they 'owe' you
           something, so you have this need to steal petty items to try to
           compensate.  Either you're a klepto or more likely just need a new
1999/9/30-10/1 [Computer/SW/Mail] UID:16636 Activity:high
9/30    Is there a way to make pine or elm or any other mailer save mail
        as '' instead of just 'user'?  Having to manually
        type in the complete address is a big hassle.  Thanks.
        \_ Very easy.  Switch to procmail/mh/nmh.
        \_ Didn't this already get answered?
