2001/10/5 [Computer/SW/Mail, Computer/SW/OS/Windows] UID:22632 Activity:very high
10/4    I've switched to MS outlook and I can't find where my mail folders
        are kept on disk.  I see "Sent Items", "Outbox".  there are files in
        there but when I do a search on those files on the whole HD, I can't
        find it.  This is w2k.  I searched everywhere under "Document and
        Settings\user\..."  can't find it.  Is it kept as a file or as some
        sort of database file?  Thanks.
        \_ C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\
           somewhere in there.
           \_ Stupid windows.
              s/\\/\//g
              \_ I don't like outlook.  switch to outlook express
                 or run cygwin mutt.
                 \_ Or run both with IMAP.
           \_ also possibly in C:\Documents and Settings\username\
              Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

10/4    Apache/network experts:  I have an application that reads from an
        a few different servers.  When i attach to an apache server
        i get all my data in one read UNLESS it is going through a proxy,
        in which case it gets broken up into multiple socket reads.  However
        if i attach to another web server, (i.e. Oracle Web Server), even
        through a proxy, i still get all my data in ONE socket read.  Any
        ideas why the difference?  Any idea how i could make apache behave
        like the OWS box?
        \_ Sounds like it is the fault of the proxy, not the Apache.
           Post all the headers that both Apache and OWS send -- may be some
           of the headers make the proxy behave differently.

10/4    In ksh, how do I change my prompt to display current directory while
        also substituting $HOME for ~ (eg. ~/foo/ instead of /home/moo/foo/)
        \_ 'exec bash'
        \_ personally i like to put pwd in the title of my xterm and
           then use host/user for a prompt.  you can find examples of how to
           set prompt to ~/foo and other goodness at:

10/4    How come sometimes URLs work without the "www" part and sometimes
        they don't?  Thanks.
        \_ because the domain was setup that way. Kinda like saying,
           "Why does http://csua.berkeley.edu need the csua part?", cause
            it was set up that way... -M Diddy
        \_ Some sites are only on the World Wide Web because it's less
           expensive than being on the entire internet.
        \_ it's part of a vast conspiracy. wheels within wheels my friend.
        \_ http://www.foo.com is just a DNS record that ends up resolving to a
           system somewhere.  What the hell is so special about http://www.foo.com
           nothing.  just a DNS record. --jon
           \_ Sorry I was not clear on what I meant.  Sometimes when I type
              http://foo.com, my browser will automatically go to http://www.foo.com
              Whereas if I type http://bar.com, it would end up not found; and I'll
              type http://www.bar.com and it would work.      - original poster

10/4    I have one win2k pc (with modem and network card) and one freebsd
        box (with only a network card). If the pc can get online thru its
        modem, is there a way to get internet on my bsd machine if I connect
        the two together thru their network cards?
        \_ After you login in Win2k, press F1, then type in Internet
           connection sharing.
           \_ then close that window, open up your network connections thing,
              go to the properties of the internet one, click the sharing tab,
              and share it with the LAN connection.

I recently received an e-mail from a young lady with a dilemma. She has recently\
 grown to accept and welcome her 34G breasts, but she finds them a huge encumbra\
nce as she enjoys a very active lifestyle, participating in volleyball, Ultimate\
 Frisbee and hockey as well as running regularly. She wrote to me to ask if anyo\
ne had had similar experiences and could offer advice or counsel in the matter:

"Has anyone at the chronicles dealt with this, or even had the surgery? The doct\
or said he would only go down to a D, but still I am concerned about how a reduc\
tion will screw with my self-image. It is only in the last two years that I have\
 started to feel comfortable with my body, is now the time to go mess with that?\
 If anyone could give me their thoughts I would really appreciate it."

              \_ if you are seriously trying to tell the world that there are
                 nice tits to look at outside your office, you are an idiot.

10/5    I've come across the term l10n in documentation. What does it mean?
        [Please keep this thread here until end of 10/05 so I get all the
        answers (and sarcastic remarks)]
        \_ it's short for "localization" (L, followed by 10 letters, N)
           http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/0,,sid9_gci212496,00.html
           \_ A closely related term is "i18n" -- internationalization
              \_ and there's "L12y", localizability.  these are the dumbest
                 abbreviations I've ever seen.
                \_ a11y = accessibility
                   g11n = globalization
        \_ pr0n == ???
           \_ thanks!
        \_ kinda like il8n ("internationalization")

10/05   im having some trouble sorting email in pine.  sorts dont work
        anymore.  what do i need to do ?  ive tried deleting the pinerc
        in case it was messed up, but the default one doesnt bring the
        sorting back.  is it a case of too much mail?  if so, ok, but see,
        im trying to sort to decide what to clear out...   let me know
        if its something obvious, thanks.   -hahnak
        \_ It doesn't work for me, too.  Did someone screw up pine?
           \_ I think so. It is broken on soda, but not my other accts.
           \_ Maybe not:
                soda 3: ls -l `which pine`
                -r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  2696760 Feb 12  2001 /usr/local/bin/pine*
                \_ what does this mean?
                   \_ apart from you're an idiot?  that pine hasn't changed
                      since feb 12, i assume.
                        \_ incorrect assumption.

        will fail," the president said.
        http://news.excite.com/news/ap/011004/17/attacks-bush-slip
        \_ Better than jerking off in the Oval Office sink.
           \_ Do you honestly believe this?  Competence is much more
                important to me...
              \_ let real actions and decisions be the basis for judging
                 competence, not speaking skills.
                \_ And we are all too familiar with Clinton's
                   policy coups... take for example, quilt making
                   at the CIA in the name of diversity.  Oh, and
                   don't forget helping the KLA (read Muslim terrorists)
                   dismantle Serbia.
                   \_ I agree. Clinton shouldn't have bombed Serbia. He
                      should have bombed the RNC headquarters.
                        \_  Oh I forgot, elite intellectuals
                            (read liberals) know whats best for everyone,

                            \_ Hey, now you're learning. Democrats, in
                               general, ARE smarter than Republicans and
                               know what's right (or "rite" in Bushspeak)
                               for society.
