11/25   Does anybody know if it is possible to restore a file that has
        been deleted from the Recycle Bin in Windows 98?
        \_ Use Norton Utilities or similar program
        \_ I have no personal experience with this program, but you could try
        \_ In English: the shitty filesystem that dos/win9x use doesn't really
           delete your data, just the directory entry and even that only by
           changing the first character.  Thus if you haven't overwritten that
           directory entry or the data it points to, any of a million undelete
           programs for dos/win9x will get your data back.  Norton and various
           others will take your money for undelete or you can use google for
           free.  --at
           \_ While I agree with the sentiment towards Win9x/DOS and its
              filesystem, I think the technique it uses for file deletion
              (remove the directory entry and leave the file data) is
              reasonably adequate in non-security-sensitive applications.
              I also believe most other "popular" filesystems use the same
              \_ I suppose if you're only storing your pr0n and pirated mp3
                 collection then this method is adequate for your purposes --at
                 \_ well, duh.  who doesn't want to be able to recover pr0n?
                        \_ why are you deleting such incredibly valuable
                           data in the first place? --at

11/25   I am tired of shaving every day.  What can I do?
        \_ grow a beard.
        \_ Epil-stop!  Only $19.95!
           \_ is this the stuff you see in late-night infomercials?  does this
              stuff really work?
        \_ I started shaving every other day instead of every day a couple
           years ago.
        \_ Hormone shots!

11/26   What's a good movie that I should get on dvd?
        \_ "Pr0n, weak file systems and YOU!"
        \_ pixar films are always good.
           \_ i have bugs life.  Monsters, inc is on the way. (73%)
        \_ Go see Mulholland Drive in the theater.  It is the greatest
           film ever made.  -blojo
           \_ have this annoying smr of kpax, but it looks good so far
              has k.spacey ever been in a bad movie?
        \_ shrek is good... and dreamworks reportedly took the time to
           storyboard the dvd extras.
        \_ The Matrix if you have a good sound system.
        \_ Depends... you looking for something to showcase your spanking
           new shiny home theater setup? Then the aforementioned Matrix
           would be a good choice. Or good cinema?

        \_ Isn't xbox basically a PC running a stripped w2k with no option for
           a real keyboard because MS didn't want it too closely associated
           with their other crashware?
             \_ No.  You have no clue.  But also, this appears to be a
                non-technical lecture, being very marketing-heavy, and not
                something I'd be enthusiastic about.  -blojo
                \_ Ok, clue me.

        something like: there are places I remember / all my life / some

        \_ In My Life

11/26   Is there some software I can run on a Solaris NFS client or server
        that will show me what files are being asked for via NFS?
        \_ lsof will compile and almost anything.  Solaris has a native command
           which I can never remember the name of.  --at
           \_ this will miss a short-lived process.  I was looking for
              something at the network or kernel level.
        \_ Run sniff or tcpdump.
