4/7     Who's da man?
        \_ Login: man                              Name: The Man
           Directory: /usr/share/man               Shell: /nonexistent

2000/4/9 [Consumer/Audio] UID:17961 Activity:very high
4/8     Damn it. Found a Sun external SCSI CD-ROM drive and hooked it
        up to Ultra-1 desktop, but how do I get music to come out of
        the internal speaker? Using Workman, but can only get music by
        connecting headphones/external-speakers to the drive's output-jack.
        Checked speaker working.
        \_ you can't.
        \_ You can rip the cd & play from the HD.  cdparanoia is a
           great ripper.
        \_ you plug headphones or a speaker into the jack on the front of
           the cdrom drive
2000/4/9 [Computer/SW/Database, Computer/SW/OS/Solaris] UID:17962 Activity:nil
4/9     Note:  For those of us who are unfortunate enough to have
        to use Oracle 8.0.3~8.0.5 on Solaris, there is a SERIOUS BUG
        in the asynch write mode of Oracle.  Turn off asynch write
        in the parameter file or upgrade to 8.0.6+ a.s.a.p.  Otherwise
        you run a high risk of running into a data corruption error
        undetected by Solaris or Oracle.  We lost 4 of 9 databases
        to this error (fortunately they were not critical ones).
        Synch writes: slow but safe.  Frequent exports: help but doesn't
        solve the problem.  If you need more help or info on this
        don't contact Larry E., he'll deny everything, send me mail
        instead.  --mtbb
