5/24    Troll about deleting trolls deleted.
        \_ It wasn't a troll.  This is the kind of thing I was talking
           about.  I restored my post. -emin

5/24    I think the "XXX troll deleted" messages are a bit uncalled for
        sometimes.  I propose that if you are going to delete a post
        becuase you think it's a troll, you should sign your name, or
        maybe you should only need to sign your name when you delete
        a signed post.  Comments?  -emin
                \_ trolls never sign their names.  That's part of what
                   makes them trolls.  -tom
        \_ don't think its that necessary.
        \_ people who delete stuff that they think is a troll are censors.
        censors ar fucking assholes. period.  they just like to try
        to legitimize their censorship by signing or saying troll deleted.
        oh, an d did i say fuck you to all the censors?  here: fuck you.

5/24    man page troll deleted.
        \_ it wasnt a troll. just lack of clue. Since the answer to every
           question posted is always RTFM, I would have thought that "how
           do I RTFM?" might actually get an answer.

5/24    The company I work for is hiring like it's a two-bit whore.
        Pre-IPO. Shitload of options. See the big list in
        /csua/pub/jobs/ROI_Direct and send me your resume. -seano
        \_ Beware the Moonies!
                \_ what makes you think these people are moonies?
                \_ Seano no longer works for moonies.  Seano works for evil
                   soul selling spammers now.  -John
        \_ I didn't know that two-bit whore's hired people. I
           though that two-bit whore's got paid by people. If
           you need to pay the company to work there it must suck.
           And if its a two-bit whore of a company you might get
           a vd or something.
                \_ The Apostrophic Jihad will have you're head on a plate!
                                                   \_ your
                                                        \_ YHBT, HTH, HAND.

                \_ seano wasn't an English major.  He's trying his best.
                   \_ This has nothing to do with anything. I'm just dumb.
           \_ Well... to clarify for the impotent of imagination, a
              two-bit whore - less discriminating than a standard whore -
              was naturally easier for ANY man (or dyke), from most all
              walks of life, to get off on. Likewise, the employ of the
              company is comprised largly of men and dykes and is not as
              pretty as other dot-com start-ups much in the same way that
              a two-bit whore was not as pretty as the average whore.
              a two-bit whore was not as pretty as the average whore. The
              important point that you are missing in your blindingly
              adolescent analysis is that it's all about sacrificing as
              little as possible to get in on the Big Hole. C'mon, little
              timid boy... are you afraid to take your pants off? -seano
              \_ You sound defensive.  Are you ashamed of working there?
              \_ WTF are you babbling about?  More importantly, can I have
                 a few hits from your bowl?

5/25    on my tape measure, there is a little black diamond every 19 3/16
        of an inch.  This is not half a meter(its off by over a
        centimeter).  what the hell is it?  we have something in the
        lab that was machined in england which is exactly that height,
        and it seems like an unlikely coincidence, if that gives any
        clues.  thanks.
        \_ I would guess it's the distance center-to-center from one stud to the
           next, but I thought that was every 18". -emarkp
        \_  Q. What is the 19 3/16 inch marks at the small diamonds on my
            tape measure?

            A. 19 3/16 multiplied by five equals 96 inches(95 15/16) or
            eight feet. This is another stud layout. It is typically used
            by commercial builders when minimum code is satisfied. This
            practice cuts cost on framing material on large jobs.
            \_ thank you.
            \_ thank you.  i guess the dimensions of our part that was
               machined in england are just a coincidence.

5/24    Is there a Free streaming video server for linux?  Where?
        \_ Yes.  On the net.
            \_ never under-estimate the smartassness of CSUAers -top
        \_ Nothing worth using.  Try windows.
