9/30    In NT command prompt, do "dir *1.*" and "dir *2.*" have any special
        meaning?  I was trying to list files like "foo1.txt" and "foo2.txt"
        but the commands also listed some other file whose names don't even
        contain '1' or '2'.  Thanks.  -- yuen
        \_ NT doesn't have real globbing/regular expression matching.

9/29    I thinh0zerg,  We should take
        tests with partners and work on the projects alone.  This way, people
        who h0zer to carry people who
        shit their know don't.  and Tests worthless useless are, and easily
        replaceable by an O(1) lookup with the right literature.
        \_ good tests aren't.  That is why every test I took in CS at Cal
           was open book.  -aspo
        \_ But it's easy to verify you are "working alone" on a test,
           and almost impossible to do so on a project.
           Some professors let you do a project by yourself, but you
           dont gain anything extra by doing that.
        \_ I really like the Berkeley policy of letting the competent people
           know early that a world full of freeloaders is eagerly awaiting their
           shoulders.  Thus the competent acquire the correct attitude by the
           time they graduate. -- ilyas
        \_ Only hard worh0zert
           it.  Deleting this changes the context of what follows.  Don't be
           a dummyhead, dummyhead]
           \_ BTW, hotshot,
              what's your EECS/CS GPA? Unless YOU are in HKN, you've got
              arrogance for nothing.
                \_ I already graduated.  I don't have a GPA.  I also never
                   joined any key club resume stuffing crap either in HS or
                   college.  HKN is not the be-all, end-all of educational
                   godhood.  I did quite well in everything except 60b.  For
                   some reason, VAX assembly language didn't sit well.  Can't
                   imagine why.  I suppose a B- in vax assembly makes me
                   worthless and stupid in your book.  Or was it my total
                   apathy for resume stuffing?  BTW, no one has ever asked me
                   which clubs I belonged to and when interviewing, no one has
                   ever volunteered such crap to me.  If the best a candidate
                   can come up with is membership in key club, they have
                   nothing to offer.  Excuse me while I go brush up on my
                   vax assembly for an interview tomorrow.
                   \_ It wasn't VAX, it was MIPS assembly.. that could be
                      the problem.
                      \_ depends on when you took the class.
                      \_ It was VAX 11/780.  Thanks for playing.  Maybe it's
                         possible I took the course years before you were in
                         school and it changed between when we each took it?
                         Oh no, that's right, all these courses are exactly
                         the same forever.  How silly of me to forget that
                         computer science never changes.
                         \_ Right.  There were no CS classes before MIPS
                            & Java.  Those who talk about CS 50 & 60 series
                            classes are just making typos.
                            \_ hey some 60b students did MIPS.  I think.
                               Oh wait, I never tooh0zerd. -aspo
                            \_ Yeah, sorry for the typo.  I was on drugs or
                               something when I said VAX 11/780.  I'm now quite
                               certain it was cs61b doing OOPS Java coding on
                               MIPS.  I'll run my motd entries through a spell
                               and reality checker in the future.  There was
                               never such a thing as a VAX and cory.eecs,
                               po.eecs, and the other student-use VAXen are
                               just a bad-think myth.  I'm delusional.  I think
                               the freshie has been run into the ground enough
                               on this point.  I'll stop now.

10/1    I'm trying to port some UNIX C++ code to Windows Visual C++.
        My code uses the hash_map template from the Standard Template
        Library, but Windows doesn't seem to support the hash_map in
        its STL.  Anyone know of a way I can get some kind of STL
        hash table in Windows?  Alternatively, pointers to stand alone
        free source for a C/C++ hash table would also be great.
        Thanks. -emin
        \_ Someone deleted this comment:  hash_map is *not* part of the
           standard.  It is a vendor extension.  Whatever solution you
           look for, don't depend on it being in a specific
           implementation of STL.  Look, for example, for a solution
           that depends on the STL but is implemented as a separate
           libarary.

9/30    Accidentally typed pin instead of pine.  What exactly does it do?
        no man pages available.
        \_ It's a stupid csua annoyance for anyone who typos any of several
           common commands that start with 'pin' such as ping and pine.  It
           might also possibly mark you as a pinhead to the low grade morons
           who write such crap and stick it in default path location.  Maybe
           they find it funny.  Maybe they find yermom jokes funny, too. Maybe
           they think it gives the csua character or something.  I dunno.
