6/14    I want to be able to press a few keys in Emacs20 and have it run a
        command "cleartool diff <current-file-name>".  Is there a way to tell
        vc-diff to use my own diff command?  If not, how do I write an elisp
        function to do this so that I can bind a key?  Thanks in advance.
        -- yuen
        \_ you can either add support for another backend to vc.el. this
           seems to be pretty simple and would benefit the world, or you could
           use call-process:

        (defun clear-shm ()
        (interactive)
        (call-process "sh" nil nil nil "-c"
                        "ipcrm `ipcs | awk '/^m/ {print \" -m\" $2}'`"))

6/15    So who is this kinney anyway? http://www.csua.berkeley.edu/~kinney

        either.
        \_ BA, cal physics.  doing phd in econ at usc starting fall.  Thinks
           most IT people are too lazy, and don't do much work.   Likes the
           web as the "common application interface".  Took EECS 126, 61B
           with hilfy., math 50A/B, econ 202A/B.  Smart math guy. Jon's age.
        \_ BA, cal physics. started off in chem E. switched to physics later.

           \_ how'd he do in 61b?
              \_ he's not a cs guy.  nuff said.
           \_ I guess physics is a pretty good major if you are not good
              enough to get a engineering degree, but Econ?!? That's a
              drinking/golf major, big downgrade from phyiscs. I guess
              my question is answered, Kinney is YASL.
              \_ he thought ugrad econ was too easy.
              \_ have you ever taken a grad econ course? they're not the same
                 as undergrad econ.  It's about modelling systems using diff
                 eqs and other math tricks.   Have you taken a grad econ
                 course at Berkeley?  Taught by Brad De Long?   Or are you
                 yet another motd wanker(person who speaks from the arse)?

6/15    Apple opened its store in glendale, CA.  there isn't even one in the
        bay area.  Is this a sign of the times?
        \_ There's already an Apple store at 1 Infinite Loop, Cupertino.
           and Scary Movie 2 (wayans bros and the chick from band camp) are
           coming out this summer.
        \_ on a brighter note, Apocalypse Now++, Kiss of the Dragon (jet li),
           and Scary Movie 2 (wayans bros and some chick) are coming out this
           summer.

           computers on Shattuk, TSW sells them too.

              _not_ their online store.  this is like apple's version of

06/15   anyways. I just came back to put up a better Atlantis vs. Nadia link.
        http://www.oldcrows.net/Atlantis
        \_counterpoint to the above:
          http://utd500.utdallas.edu/~hairston/atlantis.html
        \_ I watched Atlantis last night. It was pretty good, short but
           good. Has all the makings of a afternoon series a la Aladdin
           or DuckTales. I'd never heard of Nadia before, though I have
           seen a considerable amount of anime, but from reading these
           URLs it seems like Nadia might be a good show to watch in the
           future.
           \_ IMO, the opening was promising, but it seemed like they
              released the film before it was done.  Disjointed plot,
              little development of the characters, rushed, jerky,
              and quite frankly, the poorest quality in-theatre Disney movie
              I've seen.  I dunno, maybe I was just having a bad day,
              and quite frankly, the poorest quality in-theatre Disney
              movie I've seen.  I dunno, maybe I was just having a bad day,
              since reviewers didn't seem to think it was that bad, but
              2 out of 3 in the group I went with felt the same way, and
              one thought it was good, and he's seen a bunch of anime too.
              \_ I agree, I though that it was too short and the character
                 and plot development could have been better, but in its
                 defense there were no stupid songs and otherwise contrived
                 "romantic" interludes like in the typical disney movie.

                 interludes like in the typical disney movie (the mural
                 scene doesn't count IMHO).
                 The only Disney animated movie I liked more than this was
                 Aladdin (I'm not counting the Pixar stuff), but I haven't
                 seen Mulan, which looks like it might be pretty good.
                 I would have like the movie better if the plot had been
                 like Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis.
