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
           index.

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:

        http://www-cs-students.stanford.edu/~tjw/srp

        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    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.      ...my two cents

2/16    tiger.census.gov 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
                    laptop.
        \_ Pass Xsun and go directly to http://www.xfree86.org or http://www.xig.com
           (XFree is cheaper, xig also adds support for other notebook
            devices Sun doesn't do very well).   Also, go to http://www.sunhelp.org
            and read the FAQ's before you begin.   -alan-
           \_ Openwin is the standard!
