1/1     Can someone tell me the name of the female singer who sings the
        remake of Wham's "Last Christmas"?  Thanks!!!
        \_ can't you use google or morpheus to find out?

1/1     Which site has the best e-card selections?  I tried hallmark, yahoo,
        bluemountain etc and am still searching for a nice one to send within
        a few hours.
        \_ nothing says cheap and lazy like an eCard.  Why not get a gift
           certificate to amazon or somewhere instead?
           \_ The only things I ever gets are eCards.  This year I refuse
              to be a piece of doormat and return the favor in kind.
        \_ That's just what we need, our email address on another spam list
        \_ How about

1/1     To whoever was talking about some usgs site being down... I guess
        their plug was pulled because they were stealing money from some
        Native American trust fund or something:

1/1     What is a command that I can type that will tell me if I have
        any new mail or not? I do not want to run pine, just a quick check
        that will say "New Mail" or "No New Mail" or something like that.
        \_ frm or newmail?
           \_ Thanks a bunch. 'frm -s new' is Exactly what I wanted.
        \_ what about biff/xbiff?
           \_ Nope, I don't want a program running all the time.
              I just want to check if I have new mail occasionally.
              \_ nfrm also works
        \_ /usr/bin/Mail, then type "x" to exit.

1/1     I'm using SecureCRT over a 33.6 modem to connect to soda, and my
        connection consistently is reset after typing just a few
        characters (for instance, I couldn't type this post using it).
        I've tried ssh 1 & 2; 3des, rc4, and blowfish; and several
        different server types, with no improvement.  Why is this
        \_ SecureCRT does that with DSL connections for me.  Not that bad
           but enough for me to curse it or windows.
        \_ Could be flaky modem connections or so--although that usually
           happens with v.90 (56.6k)--doesn't ssh have some sort of error
           checking to make sure no funny business is going on with your
           connection?  I would try to bring down the connection speed to
           1200 and then gradually increase it and see what happens.  Also
           for fun try another ssh client like TeraTerm to compare.  -John
        \_ Try putty, it works better than SecCRT on dialup lines (at least
           that was my experience when I was in India and had to deal with
           the dial up lines there).
           \_ putty?  barf!  Putty was dropping me from a rock solid T1 line.
              This is definitely what they meant by "get what you pay for"
              when it comes to software.  Tera Term takes an extra 30 seconds
              to setup, is free, and unlike putty, it works.  I'd rather go
              back to whistling in the phone then use putty.
              \_ I use putty on both T1 and dial-ups.  It never drops any
        \_ I've used SecureCRT on dial-up and over cable and, with the
           exception of campus network outtages, have never had problems.

1/2     Anyone have any experience with USB 2.0 on Windows 2000? I'm
        thinking of getting an external HD for my laptop and trying to
        decide between USB 2.0 and Firewire. Thanks.            - rory
        \_ USB 2.0 comes included on some newer motherboards.  Firewire does
           not.  Does your laptop already have FW support?  USB2.0 support?
           Do you plan to use this harddrive on any other machine?
           \_ I have a Sony VAIO with one FW port and 2 USB ports. I
              was under the understanding that USB 2.0 would use the same
              plug. I thought the only hang-up might be software (driver)
              support. I was hoping to use the HD on other machines, but this
              isn't super important because I'm looking to buy a USB/FW case,
              so will be using a standard IDE drive that I can always use
              somewhere else.           - rory
                \_ It sounds like it doesn't matter.  It was my understanding
                   that usb2.0 was hardware change but maybe a new bios flash
                   is good enough?  I haven't researched it.  It sounds like
                   you don't have a special need for either and should just
                   get the cheaper one.  You should double check the usb2.0
              \_ USB 2.0 requires a different chipset.  I doubt you will be
                 able to upgrade your existing ports.  I'd recommend you go the
                 firewire route, although I personally think firewire is the
                 better technology and that USB 2.0 is just a hack.  You also
                 can look for enclosures that support both firewire and USB 2.0,
                 although that obviously will cost more.

1/2     I'm still curious why stalkers post their psycho shit on the motd.
        Any current or former motd stalkers care to explain?
        \_ What's your name/number/measurements? Tell me, and I'll explain
           it to you.
           \_ 3.5" around, 7" long.  Explain now, please.
              \_ That gives me a hard-on.
