8/30    How do I enroll regular Berkeley classes via U.C. Extension? Also
        how much is it per unit?
        \_ Not sure if ALL regular classes are offered through UCE, but some
           that do, I know that it cost around $495/unit. A 3-4 unit Java
           clas may set you back around $1600-1800. - jthoms
        \_ This is all on the UCExtension website.  I just enrolled in 7 UC
           units through concurrent enrollment for $1270.  You need an
           autograph from the instructor and a rubber stamp from the dept.
           chair head.  Punt the UCExtension courses-  they are expensive and
           not very rigorous.
           \_ It's concurrent enrollment.  You can take any courses at
              UCB for credit given that you obtain approval from the
              chair of the department and the professor.  Cost may
              differ if you're a California resident.  BTW, if you
              are an alumni, you can get 10% discount.
              \_ SOME alumni, dimwit.
                 \_ "if you are some alumni"?   that doesn't make sense either.
                    the correct version would be, "if you are an alumnus"
                    \_ Why can't the "you" be plural?
        \_ Why the hell would you bother? You graduated from college right?
           You can teach yourself!

8/30    What's a good site to find out ways to compromise programs?
        This is a legitimate request.  I don't plan to do anything

8/31    please buy some stock today.
        \_ Why?
          \_ because they are oversold - someone else

8/31    Shakespeare Porn!
        \_ His wife is hot!
           I wish my wife is that hot.
           \_ Her breasts are too large.
              \_ Just the right cup size for me.
              \_ The bigger the better! - Bill C.
        \_ Now how could such a dorky-looking guy has a wife that hot?
           Oh nevermind, two words: 'Ron Jeremy'.

8/31    How do I use the "-M" operator in tcsh?  Say I want to check
        if a file has been modified in the past 24 hours.  How do I do
        "if (-M myFile ......)"?  Thanks.
        \- it isnt builtin last time i checked:
        $ageday = (-M $FILE_TO_STAT);
        $agehrs = $ageday * 24;
        $agemin = $agehrs * 60;
        $agesec = $agemin * 60;
        agesec !:1 | grep ^seconds: | cut -f2 -d:
        ok tnx.
        \_ i think this works:
           touch .now ; if ( -M ___ > -M .now - 60 * 60 * 24 ) ...

           replace ___ with the file you want to test, and ... with the
           command you want run. -jlau
           \_ That's ingenious!  Thanks!
2001/8/31 [Politics/Domestic/Gay] UID:22311 Activity:very high
8/31    I've heard that gay men often wear an earring on one side.  Which
        side is it?  Right or left?  Thanks.
        \_ Millhouse, my mom wears an earring. Do you think she's cool?
        \_ About 20 years ago, this may have been the case.  Piercing is
           far too common now to be any distinguising factor in sexual
           \_ Yes, about 20 (or maybe only 15) years ago it was:
              left: straight, right: gay
        \_  Trying to upgrade your gaydar?  What for?
            \_ probably knows someone with such an earring...i'm curious myself.
               but i mostly assume any male with an earring is gay in spirit.
               \_ arrrrrgh, matey.  ya be callin' me gay, ya landlubbing
                  \_ He's probably hoping all male earing-wearers are
                     at least latently gay so he can fantasize about them
                     and hope it may come true.
                     \_ Oh not everybody. I only fantasize about you,
                        big boy.
2001/8/31 [Computer/SW/Security] UID:22312 Activity:nil
8/31   Is it ok to ssh to a remote machine as root?  I need to write a script
       to do some administration jobs in a remote machine.  Should I do ssh to
       the machine as root and then execute a command or ssh as a normal user
       and then use sudo to execute the command?
       \_ It really ends up equivalent.  SSHing directly as root is probably
          easier.  /etc/ssh/sshd_config
          PermitRootLogin yes
          IgnoreRhosts no
          RhostsAuthentication no
          RhostsRSAAuthentication yes

          Then, as root on the _server_ ssh back to the _client_ to get a copy
          of the client's host key in your known_hosts file.  Now just make
          sure you have the client in the server's root's .shosts file, and
          you should be good to go.
