3/15    What does Akamai's policy say will happen if I Akamaize my web site
        images (e.g.,
        and not tell them? Will I get in trouble big time? Small time?
        Not at all?
        \_ You're an Akamai customer, right?  Read your contract.
           \_ No, I'm not. -- original poster
        \_ IIRC, when you do this, you are pretty much stealing someone else's
           Akamai bandwidth, and they will be billed accordingly.  There was
           some discussion of this on the mailing list of Peacefire, a group
           opposed to censorware.  Since Akamai has deep pockets, censorware
           vendors won't block it, and, consequently, you can use Akamai sites
           to view blocked URLs.  Peacefire published the exploit.  Though
           the morality of this is suspect, thus far, I have not heard of
           anyone being punished for using it. -dans
        \_ I used to work there, if you want the scoop contact me. --aaron

3/15    What's the best way to study for CS Subject GRE? Thanks.
        \_ Take CS61ABC, CS162, CS164, CS170, CS...
                \_ Yeah right.  Like those teach you anything practical.
                   \_ What are you talking about? I solve NP-complete
                      problems all the time.
                   \_ The issue is not practicality. The issue is prepping
                      for the GRE.
                      \_ Almost none of which is the theoretical crap you get
                         from Berkeley CS.
        \_ take lotsa practice tests, review your 172/164 material, and
           know enough 150 to build a shift-adder - paolo (who took the GRE
        \_ last i recall, CS GRE isn't required for many graduate programs.
           but hey, doing well can look good on a resume too!
           \_ a lot of the top programs seem to require it.

                \_ Hey!  That's not true! You get to suck cock, too!
                   \_ And you know this how, Anthony?
                    \_ Anthony doesn't suck cock.  That's a lie.  Maybe a
                       little nibble or a long lick but no sucking!
                    \_ cause your dad taught me how
                   \_ and toss salads
        \_ They should just do tai chi. It's cheap!
        \_ Sure. You can also play basketball, read books in your spare time,
           and get a law degree on the side while you're there.
                \_ Only in criminal law.

3/16    Want extra money? A friend of mine is looking for a good web
        programmer for  small projects. Could be be short-term or ongoing.
        Email him at ALEX@MU.COM with your resume and/or telephone contact
        and best time to call.
        \_ Is anyone looking for a bad web programmer?  Anyone ever seen
           that on a resume?
        \_ Is he trying to get someone for $15/hr or willing to pay real
           rates (>$50/hr)?
           \_ Does the $15/hr rate for a programmer exist anywhere outside
              the state institutions?
              \_ Poorly paid interns. But maybe the guy figures he can pay
                 $15/hr because he's getting work done by students.
