1/16    Transmeta is coming out of hiding on Wednesday 1/19 with a press
        conference and announcements on their web site (according to
        \_ is this when they announce that half the IT community is
           actually blood-sucking, night-walking VAMPIRES who have taken
           on IT jobs as effective cover for their long-existing society

              \_ you suck
                \_ Yes I do suck.  I suck quite well.  You'll never know the
                   pleasure of my top notch suckage.

                \_ Scanning is like reading other people's email.  Dull.
                   Hacking linux is something less than 1% of linux users are
                   actually doing.  The bulk are loading RPMs written by
                   others and calling themselves hackers.
                   \_ Listening to police frequencies is dull.  Sitting
                      in prison is even more dull.  QED         --sky

                           \_  I never tripped on police until being arrested
                               a few days ago.  After seeing how sucky it
                               is to be stuck in Santa Rita, I decided to take
                               things a bit more seriously.  And this was the
                               same night I was visiting a friend in Santa
                               Rita who got busted when the house
                               he was at was raided by oakland police, the
                               Alameda DA, and the FBI.  I have the BPD freq's
                               but I need the freq's for task as they are
                               the d00ds that roll up on you when you get
                               raided.  And as there are lots of other paranoid
                               freaks on soda, I thought someone should know.
                               So kindly shut the fuck up before
                               I send over some very large ex cons to your
                               house to rearrange your furnature.  -- not sky

                                   fucking poser and a loser and no one wants
                                   to hear how many cons took your geek ass in
                                   prison.  And oh yeah, did I forget to
                                   mention how impressed I am that a Cal alum
                                   or student managed to get arrested?  BFD.
                                   That takes real brains in a town where you
                                   can smoke a joint in public in the pre-med
                                   marijuana days and no one blinked.  Go
                                   snuggle up with your con lover buddies and
                                   get the fuck off the motd. -- also not sky
                                   \_ Heh.  If you are so sure I am a poser,

                                      whats wrong?  Afraid if you signed your
                                      name everyone would laugh at
                                      your false male bravado?  I suspect you
                                      are tom, in which case you will be
                                      forgiven because you are cursed with
                                      perpetual PMS, but if you are not, all I
                                      can say is you better back the fuck up
                                      before you get smacked the fuck up,

                                           or "smack the fuck up, bitch".  I

1/16    Comment on 1-800-US-SEARCH. I paid $39.95 to search for someone.
        They came back, and said "The person you requested could not be
        found. Thank you for using 1-800-US-SEARCH!". I got a $39.95 bill
        in my credit card the next month. One word of advice:
        don't use these fucking lame ass search services.
        \_ Duh.  Contest it.
        \_ Duh - they did the search, it didn't pan out.  Unless they
           guarantee success, what's your complaint, really?
           \_ The complaint is that he got taken for a $40 ride.
           \_ Not a valid reason to dispute charges with visa.
                \_ It's cheaper for the search company to refund the 40 dollars
                   than to mess with Visa.  Visa is big and brutish and likes
                   its customers.
                \_ Sure it is.  You can dispute anything.  In fact, in this
                   case he should since they didn't even both reporting what
                   form of search they used, how close they may have gotten,
                   etc.  I'll bet a complaint to Visa will turn up a much more
                   detailed report from the search company.
        \_ If they dont refund your money, then call up your credit card
           company and complain. At NO POINT pay the disputed portion of
           your credit card bill. By the way, you can find anyone, there
           is no such thing as "could not be found", unless you supply
           totally wrong information. And, if they are a berkeley alum,
           you can definitely find them. Who do you want to find? What
           information do you possess?
           \_ He was looking for the Easter bunny.
        \_ email "7 on your side" - the guy is an ass

1/17    As revealed first on the motd, transmeta's hype turns out to be little
        more than just that.  In only 2 days you'll see how the hype machine
        has turned greater-than-MS vapor into "We rethought the microprocessor
        to create a whole new world of mobility".  Crusoe is going to be nice
        but not truly ground breaking.  Another babystep in the high tech world
        over hyped, over sold, and under powered.  You saw it here, first, not

                      was/is there a son of microlunacy?

1/17    Is there a free ISP that doesn't require you to click on something
        every so often?  I don't mind looking at banners, but it's annoying
        to have to click on something every 20 or 30 minutes.
        \_Better yet, anyone know how to defeat the ads in one of the free
          \_ Yes.  Dial-in directly using Dial-up Networking (for win95/98),
             instead through the apps the ISP provided.  It works for netzero.
             \_ ouch. how evil!
                \_ Must click advertising scams are evil.  Ads in general are
                   \_ actually, i'm an evil pir8te, so i shouldn't be so
