2/13    Tweakers suck.  --sky
        \_ Define "tweaker", please. Your 3reet vocab is too much for me.
          \_ Tweaking occurs after one has been up for 5-14 days or so
             without sleep on meth.  You start habitually picking your skin
             (hi seano!), taking shit apart and putting it back together,
             fine tuning your registry settings, whatever.  Tweakers is the
             general name given to meth addicts.  -sky
           \_ a person who habitually abuses methamphetamines
          \_  People who respond to motd trolls.  Like me.  --tweaker
                \_ I already said, "Tweaker: see 'sky'".  Why repeat?
          \_ Tweaker: see 'sky'
                \_ My best friend from high school has a kitten named Tweaker
                        \_ My best friend from HS has a kitten named Sky
        \_ I want to fuck sky's girlfriend.  I'm not kidding, here!
        \_ I want to fuck sky.  I'm not kidding, here!
                \_ Do the same http GET that sky did.  He's never met that
                \_ Do the same http GET that sky did.  He's never met that
                   guy in his life.  You, too, can have the guy of your
                   girl in his life.  You, too, can have the girl of your
                   dreams thanks to the wonders of the WWW!  "Save As" and
                   put a link to it on your homepage the same as sky did.
                       life, or get a girl of your own.  Player hating
                   \_  your lame attempts at slander do not phase me.
                       you are coo to.  Your knowledge of the inner workings
                       of the 31337++ HTTP protocol impress us all.  Get a
                      on his girlfriend?  Fake too?
                       life, or get a guy of your own.  Player hating
                       will get you nowhere in life.  -sky
                        \_ You think that was the inner workings of http?
                           That's like saying I know how the telecommunication
                           system works globally because I know how to use the
                      you use HTTPd to get a girl to call you and act like a
                           TV remote control.  You're plain stupid.
                   \_ What about the story that he supposedly got into a fight
                      outside a nightclub in Korea because someone was hitting
                      on him?  Fake too?
                      \_ Can you spell gullible?
                      \_ Yeah, and the scars that occured are just cheap
                         halloween makeup  --sky
                        \_ Dude, like you are so kewel!!
                   \_ Use photoshop to add your self to the pic so that
                      people won't know that you did a http GET.
                   \_ Yeah, and the phone calls were faked too.  Sky, how do
                      you use HTTPd to get a guy to call you and act like a
                      jealous bitch?  -mlee
                        \_ That's a real big plus.  Where can I get my own
                           psycho jealous gf if I can't use netscape without
                           some el8 help?

2/13    I like Dilbert more than I like Peanuts. Scott should go back to
        industry. Academia rewls, industry sucks!!! But wait, money rewls,
        so industry kind of rewls.
        \_ Dilbert isn't the same anymore.

2.14    Is it possible under linux/fbsd to run a ricochet (using a usb->9pin)
        adapter from a usb port?
        \_ Seen it under FreeBSD.  Your mileage may vary.
           \_ Works under linux, you need star ip (or something like it) enabled
              when you build your kernel.

02/13   Rest in peace, Charles Schultz, you dull repetitive do nothing
        lazy sloppy overpaid comic hack.  We love you!  You changed our
        lives!  Boo hoo!  sniff!  snuffle!  Snoopy is dead!
        \_ SCHULZ, dammit.  Charles *Schulz*.
               \_ I know the name of my God!  Fuck youuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!!!  And
                  he wasn't some damned Jew with a damned Jew name!
        \_ Sorry, I forgot -- this is the motd.  We should all be creaming our
           jeans over a groundbreaking hilarious real-man's comic, like "User
           Friendly"!  (Think of the newly created blank space in comics pages
           all over America!  Maybe they'll drop "Classic Peanuts" and pick up
           "User Friendly"!  That would be S0 K-RAD, D00D!!!1!!!  We can show
           the heathens what idiots they are and get our S3KR1T 3L33T LAFFS,
                \_ User Friendly is one of the few comics worse than Peanuts.
                   \_ You haven't read After Y2K, have you.
                        \_ "one of".
        \_ Why waste your venom on Schulz when there are *so* many other waste-
           of-space comics in the newspaper, like "Spiderman"?  (Or "Garfield",
           or "Mary Worth", or "B.C.", or "Crock", or "The Lockhorns", or
           "Funky Winkerbean", or (dare I say the name) "Love Is ..."?)  There
           may have been a slump in "Peanuts" during the 90s (and even then,
           I'd say that the comic came back over the past few years), but on
           the whole, the man did an exceptionally good job at doing what he
           did for almost *fifty* years.
           \_ The last 35 were tree killing pap.
           \_ Mary Worth is great.  And how did you miss the worst comic ever,
              \_ why bother reading that crap, when soda has christine.

02/13   Rest in peace, Charles Schulz.
        \_ is Snoopy's doghouse still there along highway 80 near Berkeley?
           \_  Nope.  They turned it into a Chevy's.  Damn shame...
2000/2/14-15 [Finance] UID:17510 Activity:moderate
2/14    For all you newly rich out there -- who do you use to do your
        financial management?  When you start to have lots of money,
        I'm sure that there are people out there who specialize in
        telling you what to do to make sure it doesn't disappear...
        \_ Also, how much do tax advisors cost?  Any recommendations?
            \_ where do you think all the money really goes?
        \_ Akbar and Jeff's Financial Hut: "Hot Fries and Financial Advice,
           with No Lies!"
           \_ "Where the elite meet to perform neat financial feats!"
        \_ What about those of us who are not newly rich?  It might be that
           the old rich know better.
2000/2/14-15 [Computer/SW/Database] UID:17511 Activity:nil
2/14    Are there differences between svrmgrl and sqlplus? Is sqlplus
        suppose to be better? Also, in /var/opt/oratab, the last argument
        specifies whether to start up the DB or not. Which script reads
        oratab and starts it up? Is that part of the OUI install process?
        \_ sqlplus an interactive sql prompt, and svrmgrl for starting
           your listner
2000/2/14-15 [Academia/Berkeley/CSUA] UID:17512 Activity:kinda low
2/14    Do we have the CSUA Book of Records? Like # of walls / day, #
        of squishes in a CSUA lifetime, etc?
        \_ Normally I'd just delete something like this but I felt the need
           to say, "Who cares?  Don't you have something better to do?"
           \_ no                                        sys adm at company X

2/14    Where on the web is a good place to learn sed and awk? I don't
        want to buy another OReilly book. Thanks.
        \_ If someone's put the EECS Instructional Guide to UNIX up on the
           web somewhere, that would be a good place.
