4/20    The return value of rsh bears no relation to the return value of the
        command you're trying to execute on a remote system. So how do I get
        that return value?
        \_ e.g. rsh <machine> 'grep -i foo bar; echo $status'
           \_ Or you could use ssh, which does return the exit status of
              the remote command.
           \_ Many thanx.

        Slap all his relatives in miami as well.
        \_ Should Elian Gonzales be tried as an adult and be put to death?
           Sure, I guess.
        \_ Reno is going in with an Apache Heli again. you'll see. your
           wish will come true.
           \_ VX gas!
        \_ The media needs Elian to boost ratings.
        \_ how about, instead of killing Elian we'll kill all the morons
           stupid enough to care about Elian.  Like the person who started
           this thread.  -tom
        \_ E-Lian
           \_ Cool!  When is IPO?

4/21    I have many email address (uclink, soda.csua, eecs-inst, work,
        on-campus research lab, etc etc) and I want to forward them all
        to one account. Which one should I use? Yes, I use procmail but
                        \_ Why are you asking this here? It should be completely
                           up to you where to forward your mail.
                           \_ Well, I was kind of hoping to hear what other
                              people do and why... I guess it all just comes
                              down reliability. But thanks for reassuring me
                              that I do in fact have the freedom to make
                              my own decisions.
                \_ real answer.  I forward my mail to the machine I
                   sit at, simply so the network delay is as small as
                   possible.  Really, I'd suggest forwarding your mail
                   the the computer you trust thats as close to your
                   normal mail reading desktop. - seidl
        that doesnt answer my question.
        \_ Use procmail

4/21    Boyfriend's b-day is coming up. Which game console should I get?
        Playstation? Dreamcast? N64?            -dunno much about games
        \_ what?  a CSUA chick has a b.f.?  that's gnu.
        \_ playstation 2. if you dont have the guts and the cash, then
           regular playstation.
                \_ PS2 = faster/more bits than PS?
                   \_ Yes, plus it doubles as a cheap DVD player.
                      Unfortunately, they're only sold in Japan right now.
                        \_ "cheap"?  Only relative to DVD player prices in JPN
                            And there's only about 10 released games --oj
                            \_ I thought I saw about 20 on the shelves there
          \_ Which type of games does he like?  How much are you planning
             to spend?  I have all of the above mentioned consoles, email
             me for an opinion. --oj
             \_ Bah.
                N64 if he's a 12 year old
                   I play are of the sexual kind.
                Dreamcast if he likes collecting amigas and other orphaned
                Playstation if he's a reasonably intelligent person who
                likes adult-quality games.
                \_ "adult-quality games"?  Isn't that an oxymoron?  If you're
                   an adult you wouldn't be dicking around with games.  Only
                   dateless l0sers have time for that crap.  The only games
                   I play are of the sexual kind.  --dateless l0ser
        \_ I have an N64 collecting dust (last great game was Zelda64, and
           before that, WaveRace64, which came out when N64 launched). I also
           have a Dreamcast which already has more quality games than N64.
           Currently playing Resident Evil: Code Veronica & Dead or Alive2.
           I already preordered my Playstation2 coming September / October.
           \_ I'm still building my sony points for it.
        \_ Get him a stock ticker, that way you can ensure he grows up
           to be a responsible adult. Get him a game console if you
           want him to be a miserable failure and a poor husband you
           can't provide for you or your future kids.
                \_ Speak for yourself.  We have N64, PS, & DC, plus
                   $200k annual income and stock options worth around $750k.
                   \_ Cari?

4/21    what is a troll?
        \_ Gary Bauer
        \_ That little guy on Different Strokes and Mini-Me in
           AP2 (god what a shitty movie).
           \_ what about Emmanuel Lewis?
        \_ Check you AD&D players handbook for more info.

4/21    I'm moving so I want to change my cable service.  Which of the premium
        channels (HBO, Showtime, Cinemax) offers the most movies of erotic
        nature, ie. rated TVMA or with advisories SC (strong sexual content)
        or N (nudity)?  Can't afford pay-per-view channels, sorry.  Thanks.
        \_ looking for some Ho-time or Skinimax, Mr. Troll?
           \_ I currently subscribe to HBO and SHO.  SHO seems to be better
              than HBO, but it might just be my timing.  Haven't had MAX
              before, so I wonder how it compares to the other two.
              before, so I wonder how it compares to the other two.  I'm
              moving to Fremont which I suppose is also covered by AT&T.
        \_ If blonde silcone augmented sex slave is your idea  of women.
                porn on the internet is better and free
        \_ HBO hands down. Thursdays 11PM: Real Sex, SexByte, etc etc.
           And look for movies that start after 1 am on the weekends.
