9/6     My client desktop using xntpd cannot sync with the NTP server
        3 hops away. I increased the ttl on the NTP server, but using snoop
        on my desktop shows NO NTP broadcast info coming from the NTP server.
        But the server IS broadcasting to
        Looking on the network gear, I see this config:
             no ip redirects
             ip directed-broadcast
        Would that mess up NTP broadcast packets? thanks.
        \_ You're talking about multicast, not broadcast.  Probably one of
           the intervening routers isn't routing multicast, by design or
           omission.  multicast can be very twitchy.  -tom
        \_ use NT

9/6     See the chocolate industry do their best to convince you chocolate is
        good for you:
        \_ GOD DAMN the Chocolate Industry!!11!1
           They will pay for their sick, twisted ways in BL00D!!1
           \_ can we sue them for knowing that excessive chocolate is not
              only addictive but also makes you fat and clogs up your artery?
              it is a health risk that people need to be more concerned about
        \_ "A chocolate bar, such as SNICKERS(R) or DOVE(R) Dark, has between
           two and three grams of protein."  I assume they mean from the
           chocolate... I'd hope all of the peanuts in a snickers have more
           than that....
           \_ I used to work with this redneck who would always hold up his
              beer and say "this is one porkchop right here!"
2001/9/7 [Computer/SW/OS/FreeBSD] UID:22343 Activity:moderate
9/6     Is there a way in freebsd to quiet down the printer driver?
        Every time I print something the kernel logs about a billion
        status messages.
        \_ if you don't figure it out, look at the source. it's easy to
           read. look for lpt.c
2001/9/7 [Reference/Tax] UID:22344 Activity:moderate
9/6     What can I do to help this economy? I need a company to hire me!
        \_ Spend the tax refund check ASAP.
           \_ ok, done. Now what?
           \_ spend it on a call girl. That way the gov't doesn't get
              more income tax.
                   \_ What does "BBFS" stand for?
2001/9/7 [Politics/Foreign] UID:22345 Activity:very high
9/7     I heard that there's a US military base in Cuba.  Why does Fidel Castro
        allow a US base in his communist country?
        \_ Because he and his puny little shit hole government can't do jack
           about it. If he attacks it, there won't be enough of cuba left
           to call an island.
           \_ "You can't handle the truth!" --jessup
           \_ When was the base at Guantanamo leased to the US?
           \_ Why the fuck don't we just send in the marines and arrest Castro
              and his puny ass?!
              \_ He hasn't broken any laws in the US. DUH.
                 \_ He is a fucking dictator!
2001/9/7 [Health] UID:22346 Activity:high
9/7     How many of you are married and still use the condom because your
        wife refuses to take the pill? Poll:
        Married + condom:
        Married + pill:         ..
        Married - sex:
        Married + vasectomized:
        If you're not married, don't answer.
        \_ Some people are allergic to the pill.

        Doug Pecchenino of Xilinx told me (August 26, 1998) that his firm
        is only interested in graduates with grade-point averages (GPAs)
        of above 3.8 on a 4.0 scale. Valaiya Smith, a new graduate
        writing in Computerworld (August 3, 1998), complained that
        employers' restriction to those having GPAs higher than 3.5 is
        unfair to people like Smith who are married with families and
        working full-time while going to school.
        \_ They'll get what they deserve if that's their policy. --dim
2001/9/7-8 [Computer/SW/Security] UID:22349 Activity:very high
9/7     The DMCA just plain sucks:
        \_ Why are all you liberals trying to get things for free?
           \_ This is not about things being free. I don't mind paying for a
              good security solution. What I don't like is the fact that most
              people are scared into silence by the DMCA.
              Let's say that RSA, DH or AES was covered by DMCA and I found
              a weakness. I'd be scared of reporting my findings because I
              don't want to do hard time in a federal jail for violating the
              DMCA. If I don't report my findings people will continue to use
              a compromised security system. Someone less scrupulous than I
              may discover the same weakness and exploit it, which is very
          \_ yeah, everybody should pay for everything, all the time.  listen to
             the whims of the corporations.  screw fair use too!
          \_ As inconvenient as it might be to your conservative agenda,
             we still have the freedom to speak and think freely.
             \_ Liberals are the ones who try to limit freedoms.
                \_ Who is the one locking everyone up?
                   \_ The Feds, regardless of political associations,
                      have always been about locking up people. That's
                      why we have the second amendment. So that they
                      can't take your rights from you.
