2/16    Is there no motd reader who has softcopies of hilfinger's 61b notes?
        I find this hard to believe.
        \_ I'm sorry, my dog ate it.  After he deleted it from my hard disk.
        \_ I have it.  Who are you?
           \_ could you e-mail them to me?  thanks. - jameslin

2/16    What's the semantic difference between Java clone() and replicate()?
        \_ where'd you see replicate() being used?  it's not in the 1.3 API

2/16    Yo, does anyone have hilfinger's foreskin?
        \_ You wanna java.lang.Object.clone() him and hope to boost the
           advancement of the field of CS?
           \_ I think he wants a chew toy.
        \_ does he ever teach grad courses?
           \_ hilfinger has taught 263 and 264 before.

2/16    Anyone here running SRP telnet? The URL is:

        It looks better than SSH (no lawsuit, Open vs. DataFellows, etc).
        I know its from the farm (but hell, some of are grad students there).
        \_ I wrote some papers with Tom, he's a pretty sharp guy.  I think
           SRP is more secure than SSH, the only problem is that nobody
           uses it.  Also, if I recall correctly, it doesn't encrypt
           anything after the login.

2/16    Is there a program to expand a .bin CD image file onto hard disk
        directly without going through the CD burning step?
        \_ Most Unix'es can mount an ISO-9660 (High Sierra/Rockridge) image
           as a filesystem directly, either through builtin software or free
           ware addons.
           \_ Specifically, use vnconfig(8) on FreeBSD or losetup(8) on Linux.
              \_ or lofiadm on solaris 8.
                \_ or Joerg Schilling's fbk on earlier Solaris (see cdrecord)
        \_ There's a program (shareware?) called WinImage that lets you
           browse/copy from ISO image.  It's for Windoze, though.  You didn't
           want that, did you?

2/16    363 days left to find a date for next year.

2/16    I'm going to SE Asia for 2.5 months.  I have a question about
        anti-malaria pills.  Anyone who's been to SE Asia and is at all
        familiar with anti-malaria drugs, please email me.

                      \- malaria prophylactics work in a very different way
                      from other vaccinations. you can ask your Q here, but
                      if you have a medical question, best to ask a medical
                      person rather than a fellow traveller. CDC should have
                      some region-specific info ... this is very important for
                      malaria --psb, who has done meflequin, chloroquin etc.
        \_ peace corps?
        \_ I had malaria; it's no big deal
                \_ you mean "have"
                   \_ you're right, I meant to say "got"
        \_ My girlfriend went to India for 6 months... took Malaria pills...
           had terrible nightmares the whole time... stopped taking them and
           they went away. two cents

2/16 is a good map site.  It has details street maps
        along with capability to put in lat/long lines.  But, the lines
        only show every .1 degrees, which means that they don't show up
        on a zoomed in map, not very useful.  Is there is a similar site
        with the capability to have the lat/long lines more evenly spaced?

2/16    Anyone tried installing solaris x86 on a laptop?  What are my chances?
        Does x86 solaris have usb support?
        \_ yes.  kiss apm goodbye. why not just get a tadpole sparcbook and
           run sol sparc?
           \_ LIMITED yes. There is only a specific USB controller that
              solaris supports, and it only supports a very limited number
              of USB devices. Read the HCL.
           \_ tadpole sparcbooks are rediculously expensive. Why not just
              install Linux on it?
              \_ but linux isn't unix!  the gods will cause wrath upon him
                 and make his system *gasp* user friendly!  No! the true path
                 is the arcane way, were only a select (and therefore highly
                 paid) set people type in line noise on a command like to run
                 ed or sendmail or something.
                 \_ I get paid to manage hunders of Solaris, Linux and BSD
                    boxes and yet I prefer to run Linux on my laptop. The
                    hardware support and the community support for the laptops
                    is so much better.
              \_ Price?  you're concerned about price?  this is a machine
                 you phillistine, not some date.  You must spend if you want
                 quality!  The most expensive stuff must be the best stuff!
                 (and hence the only supported stuff)
                 \_ Tadpole spacbooks are lemmons. They are heavy and not
                    that much faster than PC laptops, except that it cost
                    6 or 7 times more than a comparably equiped IBM or Dell
        \_ Pass Xsun and go directly to or
           (XFree is cheaper, xig also adds support for other notebook
            devices Sun doesn't do very well).   Also, go to
            and read the FAQ's before you begin.   -alan-
           \_ Openwin is the standard!
