6/2     What's the fastest way (software/hardware setup) to rip 300+ CDs
        \_ um, rip as in...?
           \_ Rip as in converting and storing them in some digital audio format.
        \_ may or may not help.

6/2     I've got a 300Mhz AMD K6-2 machine.  I tried installing linux on
        it, but that failed because of some known and no-longer-fixable
        problem on the processor.  Is there any reason to presume that a
        BSD install will also fail?
        \_ I've had FreeBSD running happily on an amd-k62-300 for a long
           time, with no problems at all. -meyers

04/64   Any recommendations for cars that are good to hit bicyclists with?
        I'm thinking about a small Mercedes, cause they have the crosshairs
        type hood ornament, but then those always get stolen.  Either that,
        or something really small and maneuverable, or something with light,
        quick-opening doors that you can take out bike messengers with?
        Maybe an SUV for effect?  Also, how do I pick up hot Asian
        chicks?  I'm a math major and can prove that gaussian is the only
        function family closed under convolution, using Windows NT, not
        that girly Linux crap.  -John
        \_ You forgot to mention that you dont want some damn japanese
           rice-rocket either.
        \_ .45 ACP is the standard.
        \_ I'm told a VW bug is best for wiping out bikers.  They have the
           best bumpers and no one considers a cute car a threat until they're
           gnawing on the underside of your rear tires.  Find a hot asian math
           major chick with an NT laptop.  The younger asian chicks (*your*
           little sister, soy boy) _LOVE_ the new bug.  I can get action from
           any asian chick 18-21 with the new VW bug.
           \_ Yes, as long as you can squeeze your lack-of-exercise-mashed-
              potato-stuffed turkey belly between the front seat and the
              steering wheel.  Otherwise your months of pussy eating
              would all go to waste when your frustrated "hot asian math
              major chick" decides to go medieval on your turkey arse
              with the VW bug plastic flower, then hop on to her
              Specialized mountain bike to race off to TA her math class
              on proving that guassian is the only function family
           major chick with an NT laptop.  The younger asian chicks (*your*
           little sister, soy boy) _LOVE_ the new bug.  I can get action from
           any asian chick 18-21 with the new VW bug.
              closed under convolution, and in her hurry, crushing the
              useless NT laptop lying on the pavement with her super knobby
              bike tires.
        \_ Are you being sarcastic?
           \_ Are you?
        \_ The doors on Mercedes are not very quick, unless you're talking
           about the low-end 190 series. Generally, four-door cars will give
           you better speed and maneuverability, however they have less
           range. There is no advantage to using an SUV -- the extra
        \_ It sounds like you want a saturn coupe.  The doors are light but
           long, so they can swing out fast and have a good reach.  The
           use of plastics means they can take more damage, and the red
           color hides bloodstains well.
           height is of no use unless you want to focus on the bicyclist
           head area. In addition, you have to consider the cost of
           repair and replacement. You'd be amazed how quickly doors
           wear out with the huge number of bicyclists in SF/Berkeley.
           \_ But headshots always do more damage!!
              \_ Aw, but they all wear helmet nowadays!
                \_ Hahahahhahaa... you ever seen one of those dinky helmets
                   after an auto rolls over it?  This dude's face wasn't even
                   identifiable, but he sure looked cool on that bike.  What
                   was left, anyway.
        \_ Fuzzy, you are the trollmaster.  I bow before you.
                \_ Fuzzy's post isn't really a troll.  For one thing, he
                   signed his name, which reiffin never does.  For another,
                   his post is actually funny, which reiffin's never are. -tom
                        \_ Whatever, tom.  -reiffin
                                \_ what, exactly, do you get out of deleting
                                   useful information and replacing it with
                                   inflammatory anonymous crap?  Is there
                                   any particular reason you choose anonymous
                                   trolling to be your sole point of
                                   interaction with the CSUA?  Is there some
                                   reason you don't just go away?  -tom

04/64   Today is the beginning of an awsome era.  Nostradamus has spoken.
        \_ Well, no, not really.  He's dead for a long time and hundreds of
           his predictions, no matter how much you twist them have not come
           even close to true.
           \_ even a stopped clock is right twice a day
                \_ I liked the nostradomus vs. the aliens show on sci-fi until
                   we lost sci-fi channel.  Who knew he could've predicted the
                   coming invasion too?

04/64   Any of y'all do online gambling? I'm looking for recomendations
        to bet foosball.  Pref. at a gambling site that gives me money to
        start and has a low juice.  (but obviously one that won't cheat
        me is most imortant)

04/64   My friend needs a gift idea for her boyfriend.  She wants to spend
        << $200 and wants something kinda cool for a semi-geek guy.  She
        thought about a CD burner but wasn't really sure about how to
        install it and whether there would be enough power on his machine,
        so now she's looking for something else.  Any ideas?
        \_ Sex. And it'll definitely cost you less than $200.
                \_ Yeah, she was giving it away free last weekend at the party.
        \_ If that's what she thinks he wants, just hand him the box.  He'll
           install it.  I'd be *very* unhappy to come home and find out my
           wife had decided to add new hardware to my machine without telling
           me first.  Some surprises are bad surprises.
        \_ Does he have a DVD player?  If not, get one.
           \_ boycott the MPAA, please.
              \_ MPAA is as anal about video casette, and DVD is just such
                 higher quality.  Live with it.
                 \_ hey man, I didn't say to go out and buy a VHS instead...
        \_ If he likes TV and she's willing to go a bit higher, get a TiVo.
           They're awesome, especially for people who work later than their
           favorite shows, or who get called at home while watching TV.
        \_ How about a Palm Pilot? You can find decent ones for $140-$240,
           and with a coupon you can get $25 off (like at
        \_ Also check a recent Good Guys or COMP-USA advertisement flyer
           for some ideas.
        \_ How about a kite? There are some pretty damn sophisticated ones there
        \_ Dreamcast is $200...who gives a damn if ps2 is coming out in
           just a few months?
                \_ Soul Calibur!
