7/19    I would like to set my display to another machine that is
        listening for X11 on a port other than 6000.  How can I?
        \_ If you set your DISPLAY to server:42, your X clients will
           connect to server on port 6000 + 42.  This will work for
           any port above 6000.  Connecting to ports under 6000 isn't
           supported, and negative numbers don't work, but you can
           specify large numbers and they'll be treated as negative --
           for example, on a 32-bit system, server:4294967295 would
           connect to port 5999.
            \_ cool. How are you figuring that 429467295 = -1 ?
               (or 4294961295 = -1?)?
               \_ 2^32-1. Look up "two's complement" in any intro
                  architecture/digital design text (150 and 61c texts
               \_ [ad hominem deleted. not everyone here is in CS, by major
                   _or_ profession]
                        \_ If they have no interest in CS, they have no
                           business being in the CSUA
                           \_ Bullshit.  Go read the CSUA constitution and
                              \_ the csua is for people who can't get into
                                 cs and are desperately looking for some
                                 skills to learn so they don't have to
                                 flip burgers otherwise.
                                  \_ do you want fries with that?
                     /_ The CSUA is for everyone.  CS students and non
                        students alike. - Paolo, CSUA President.
                        - and on a personal note.  Fuck you.
                   \_  umm, moron, i have established interest by the
                        intial question and the further asking for detail.
                        As to the CENsor, thanks but no thanks; i would
                          \_ Restoration of previous ad hominem:
                             "This person is too dumb to be in CS."
                        like to have been able to read the personal
                        attack and it isn't even in ERic's motd archive.
                        For info i was not in the major, i AM in the
                        profession (if y'all accept blue-collar sys
                        admining as part of "the profession") -TOP
                \_ I think whether they're "qualified" to be in the CSUA
                   is irrelevant; whether they're qualified to participate
                   in a discussion where they have no knowledge is the
                   issue.  -tom
                   \_ The individual in question is _seeking_ said knowledge.
                      Which leaves you, yet again, without a point. Shut the
                      fuck up tom.

7/19    Anyone know if trn has a keepalive function?  I'm connecting
        to an NNTP server that keeps timing me out while I'm reading
        medium length posts.  That's annoying, since trn crashes
        when that happens, and doesn't save the read count.  Any
        \_ use tin?

7/19    Where can I find info on Solaris' dynamic shared library? For example,
        what's the technical detail on loading and method resolution,
        what's the performance loss of cross shared library call, what's
        the architectural description, etc? Thanks.

7/19    I'm a sophomore engineering intern, and already I feel dirty about
        what I'm building.  Is this a problem?

            \_ Somehow, I doubt that.
        \_ it is not a problem. work on something else.

7/20    AOL, Yahoo, and now MS messengers have voice chat capabilities.  How are
        these and how do they compare to Roger Wilco?  (I assume they're not
        multicast like RW).

7/20    Is it better to sleep with your bra on or off, and why?
        \_ what the fuck kind of a question is that.  it can't
           be serious, but it's an exceedingly dull troll...
        \_ If you have to ask, you haven't worn a bra very long
        \_ Off. All the better for me to fondly your breasts, you
           saucy wench.
        \_ I didn't know there were crossdressers on soda.
           \_ No crossdressers necessary.  After you sit at a terminal
              for a few years, you get bitch-tits.
              \_ interesting that no one actually considers the posibliity
                 of a motd h0zer being female.  many sodans, but
                 i guess motd h0zers are just all male.
                \_ a female would know the answer to the question
                   (or at least not to bother asking in the motd)
                  \_ Maybe the guy is asking for a clarification
                     about the issue, because the gf/wife told him
                     one thing and he thinks another. Personally,
                     I would prefer my wife to sleep in the nude,
                     so that I could enjoy her company all night
          \_ Bra off so smurf can perform his "maneuver".
        \_ off;  can you imagine how damn uncomfortable it is to keep
           on all night?  -- James Wiseman

7/20    Seen on a "student loan trust foundation" site:
        "Due to an enormous amount of uncollectable debts by
         Psychology/Therapy/Counseling/Social Welfare students, we no
         longer provide loans for these majors."

7/20    Is there a way, in a signal handler (on a posix platform), to determine
        the source of the signal? How?
        \_ The kernel is the source of the signal, as far as you know.
           If you want better control over the source of your asynchronous
           events, perhaps you need to read up more on other IPC mechanisms.
           Signals tend to be very coarse-grained.
        \_ POSIX-only no, SVR4 yes - see man siginfo
