8/16    My Acura Integra got stolen the other day, and there was lots
        of stuff in it.  Anything I can do besides file a police report
        and wait?  My insurance covers the car, but not the stuff inside.
        \_ Should've wired up a remote-explode device.
        \_ Are you sure you just didn't forget where you parked?
        \_ Vigilante Justice!
           \_ But he has to find who the culprit is first.
              \_ Nah, just take out every one you see driving an integra.
                 You'll get the guy eventually.  Or at least you'll have
                 fun before going down in a blaze of lead.
        \_ Buy it back from ebay, your friendly online fence
        \_ D'oh that sucks. I only had the two rear tires of my Integra
           \_ They took your tires and left your rims on? Bummer.
              \_ Nope, they took those too. I woke up to find my car on
                 two jacks.
                 \_ I wonder why they left you their jacks and didn't take all
                    the four wheels.  Dumb thieves.
        \_ Start making a list of things you had in the car...esp. that
           new moutain bike you've always wanted.
           \_ not to mention, that titanium powerbook G4 with 1GB of RAM
              that was left on the back seat..
              \_ and a case of freebsd cds!
        \_ The police should set up thief traps. Create situations that just
           scream for something to be stolen...then watch.
           \_ Watch is all they'd be able to do.  Look up "entrapment".
              \_ This is not true.  It's only entrapment if they're
                 trying to trick someone into doing something illegal.
                 Parking a nice car somewhere and watching it is by
                 no means entrapment.
              \_ Look up "sting".
           \_ If they only have that much manpower ......
           \_ I just realized that with GPS systems this would be very viable.
              You don't even need an officer nearby.  Also, setup multiple
              "target cars," then when the car is driven away, the GPS starts
              beeping, dispatch is notified, closest officer pulls them over.
              \_ "loJack"
              \_ similar been on world's police videos #1-4
        \_ That's why I dont keep any important crap in it except my rottweiler
           \_ Man, that's probably the stupidest thing I've seen in weeks.
           \_ Mmm, baked rottweiler..
        \_ If you have home owner insurance, I think some of your stuffs might
           be covered.
           \_ All your Engrish are belong to us.

8/16    Here is the list of motd fan clubs that we've seen:  they're in no
        particular order.
        * SCD fan club
        * psb fan club
        * (fucker) fan club
        \_ Dude.  (fucker) sucks.  How did this guy get a fan club?
           \_ (fucker) has a big following!  I collect everything he writes.
              He has humor and originality.  Not like kinneydrivel(tm).
              \_ Big following my ass.  He has himsel--err, you.  as far as
                 I know that's about it.  The only reason he compares
        \_ is this true? i've never heard of an ali or paolo fan.
                 favorably to kinney is that he doesn't post much.  That's
                 about the only discernable difference.
                 \_ (fucker) rocks yer ass.  get over it.
                    \_ LOL.  Riiiiiiight.
        * BDG (bitter divorced guy) fan club
          \_ Membership ought to be contingent on either being unmarried
             and commited to bachelorhood married but repentent (the fan
             club is there to help) or divorced and suffering. "Happily
             Married" and "Romantics" need not apply.
        * ali fan club
        \_ is this true? i've never heard of an ali fan.
           \_ goddammit. I wrote "ali or paolo", but of course that was
              censored. FUCKING BITCHES! BTW, ali, tx for not censoring.
              \_ i enjoy the attention. -ali
        * kinney fan club
          \_ moot.  he's posting his stuff on
             <DEAD><DEAD> nowadays.
        * anything else?
          \_ yermom doesn't need a fan club
          \_ what about tjb?!
             \_ tjb has no fan club.  But there is a committee "to get
                tjb a soda account by any means necessary."
        * i had a fan as an anonymous coward once. fan, where are you?
        \_ Anonymous Coward rocks!  Keep the faith man!
                                         - Anonymous Coward's #2 fan!
        * tom fan club. -- tom #6 fan.
        * sky fan club, the Krazy Kriminal's Krew!

8/16    Anyone knows what the Japanese or English title of the Japanese TV
        cartoon series ~20 years ago whose Cantonese title is "Doctor IQ"?
        \_ Dr. Slump (Arale-chan)
        \_ Speaking of Asian cartoons, when I was in China I picked up
           some VCD's of a chinese cartoon featuring policeman cats. I don't
           speak chinese and there are no subtitles but they are hilarious
           to watch simply because they are so surreal and so violent.
           Anyone know what the name of this cartoon is?

8/16    my power window on my honda doesn't work, motor seems fine, but
        seems a cable broke or somethign, anyone know a good place to fix
        that kind of stuff in san jose, milpitas, fremont area? thanks
        \_ Go to the Honda dealer and buy the part you need.
        \_ Get a screwdriver, open your door, put the glass back on the
           clamp, screw it back together, be happy you spent a couple
           hours working on something instead of paying someone $100.
           \_ tried that, but a cable busted.. it is more than removing
           the door panet, there is a steel wall that keeps in the
           motor and clamp, etc. and a few electrical connectors
           \_ power windows are a bitch. - former AAA automotive locksmith.
        \_ Libraries (or maybe even the Berkeley ToolLending library) have
           copies of Honda, repair manuals. Look it up and if it looks
           easy, maybe can repair it yourself. Note however, it may not tell
           you the tricks earned from experience (i.e. you might fuck up
           the interior covering for the door and it never fits right again).
           \_ too late for that (covering) :(

8/16    Anyone has experience with a company called Orlando Promotions
        (  I got an unsolicited flyer from them via fax,
        which lists a corporate discount vacation package that's very cheap.
        I want to find out if I can trust the company or not.  I can't find
        the company in  Are there any other similar organizations
        that warn the public about bad businesses?
           \_ Thanks, but I said I couldn't find it in
              \_ Oh yeah, sorry about that.  Maybe they are OK.  Just google
                 for them or something...
        \_ If it is too good to be true, it almost always is.
           \- there is a news group like ba.consumers you can try, as well as
           the travel newsgroups. i would yuse google and google groups.--psb
        \_ you moron, you are the reason we all get spam, don't respond

8/16    values.h is deprecated.  Where can I find useful #defines like
        MAXLONG these days?  grepping for it in /usr/include didn't
        turn up anything, yet it seems something like this should exist.
        \_ limits.h? (INT_MAX, LONG_MAX, ULONG_MAX, etc.)
           \_ > cd /usr/include && grep LONG_MAX *.h
              pthread.h:#define PTHREAD_THREADS_MAX                   ULONG_MAX
              \_ Look at the files limits.h includes. Specifically,
                 \_ Thanks!
