10/15   Help!  I forgot most of my 9E.  How can I use awk or sed to just
        return with the email address in:
        From: Homer Simpson <>
        \_ echo
        \_ echo | sed
        \_ sed -e 's/^.*<//' | sed -e 's/>$//'
        \_ | sed 's/.*\<\(.*\)\>/\1/'
        \_ Note that email addresses are NOT ALWAYS THIS SIMPLE.
           "True" parsing of rfc822 headers is a mess.
        \_ I hope you're not using this to spam.

10/15   (1 am)  What's with all the cops around campus and telegraph?
        \_ homecoming.  lots of losers from ucla in addition to our own.
        \_ actually it was the angry crowd who couldn't get into the
           black fraternity dance in pauley ballroom after the UC cops
        \_ bunch of frat types decided to break windows,
           at hot topic and footlocker and the gap, someone
           prevented more people from getting in.
           \_ people get pissed when they can't get their fix
        \_ I passed that way at 3am, gap had its windows broken,
           telegraph was cordoned off from channing to bancroft -jones
           pulled a gun and shot it off, causing many angry cops
           to appear with guns drawn, and everyone fled for their lives - danh
        \_ It is just the quasi-annual 100% off sale at Rasputin.
        \_ Sigh.  I'm so proud to be a Cal alumnus ...
           \_ maybe if you donated back to your school, people wouldn't
              feel so deprived.
                \_ You mean deprived of free music and clothing stolen from the
                   local stores?  Excuse me, but were you born stupid or did you
                   learn to be stupid over time?

10/15   Is Windows ME worth upgrading over Windows 98 OSR 2? Also how

10/15   I'm running NT 4.5 and it binds the middle mouse button to that
        scrollbar thing.  Is there a way to disable that?  This is creating
        problems with my reflection X xterm windows.  I can't copy and paste
        and paste and left and middle mouse buttons!  Thanks.

10/16   What's the most efficent way to reverse the order of lines in a
        text file (last line first, first line last, etc) from cmd line?
        \_ First of all, you need two computers, both running Windows 2000.
           Make sure to get two separate 17" LCD screens since your eyes
           are a non-replaceable asset.  Boot up one computer, then another.
           Bring up the text file in Notepad and scroll down to the bottom.
           On the other computer, start another Notepad.  Now you can look
           at the left LCD, and key in each line, checking for typos
           on the right LCD (are you using an ergo keyboard?).  Make sure
           to get a comfortable swivel task chair, also, with arm rests.
           You don't have to thank me!  Although my time is worth $200
           an hour, I consider my motd posts to be a friendly community
           service, and I do enjoy contributing.
                \_ this is probably the same bozo who did that stupid
                   "wassup" video.  -tom
           \_ Use a handheld document scanner, and hold it up to the left
                LCD display. Now, simply scroll up from the bottom of the
                document. *note: hold the scanner upside-down for this to
           \_ Maybe I should've emphasized the word 'efficient'...
