        Anyone saw that on TV?  Was the fight real?  Or was that some really
        amazing stunts?
        \_ Is Amy Lynn Baxter a porn star or just a nude star?

1/14    When Reagan was shot, Alexander Haig got a lot of crap about the
        line of succession and the 25th ammendment. I looked at the
        25th ammendment and I can't find anything about the speaker
        of the house comming after the VP and the secy. of state coming
        5th. Is it stated in the constitution anywhere?
        \_ yes.
        \_ I heard the same thing after 9/11 when they talked about why they
           were keeping Cheney away from Bush.
           \- hello. q.v. Article XXV is on minimal requirements on
           presidential sucession. the exact details and procedures consitent
           with this scheme is spelled out in a congressional acts (per II.1.6)
           general recommendation: there is a good edition of the
           consititution of the US printed by the govt printing office with
           a lot of tactical info and a good index. it's probably a couple
           of bucks.
           as we have learned with election 2000, the "u.s. govt finite state
           machine" doenst have all of its i's dotted and t's crossed.
           ok tnx --psb
           \_ How about those executive orders? I don't see anything in
              the constitution giving the president law-making powers.
              \_ and I see nothing in the constitution that forbids it.
           \_ To properly answer your question, NO, it is not specifically
              listed in the US Constitution.  The 25th amendment does allow
              Congress to set up the order of sucession in Article XXV.  So all
              the Constitution states is that it's up to Congress.  Congress
              currently has an Act in place that states the specific order of
              sucession.  Sorry, I don't remember where in the law books that
              one is located at.  I'll leave that an exercise for the reader.

1/15    sodans beware: sf is outlawing homelessness.-brown
        \_ I'll bite: Yes, homeless people should be enabled by the government.
           Because you know that getting off the streets would ruin their
           lifestyle choice.  Seriously, what really bugs me about this is
           that in the 80s when Reagan's people were saying some people
           preferred homelessness as a lifestyle choice they were harshly
           criticised (and rightly so).  Now the ultra left is saying the same
           thing in the same way and anyone who tries to do anything that
           might actually help a person get off the streets is harshly
           criticised.  As if the right thing to do is 'assist' the homeless
           at being homeless instead of helping with drug rehab, job training,
           and getting them cleaned up so they can get a job somewhere.  Yes,
           rejoining and being a productive member of society is somehow a bad
           thing in some people's eyes.  sodans beware: SF is a seething pit
           and a wreck of a city.-!brown
                \_ how is stealing homeless people's shopping carts going
                   to help them?  -tom
                   \_ By returning property to the owners who agree not to
                      have the homeless person arrested posession of stolen
                        \_ har har.  -tom
           \_ You are looking at the problem incorrectly. Can you force
              someone who is an addict or has mental problems to get
              treatment without infringing their personal rights? How do you
              treat those who refuse your assistance?
                \_ well, before Reagan, there was federal funding to keep
                   people who were mentally disfunctional, but not a threat
                   to others, in institutions.  Reagan's brilliant idea
                   was that if you kick them out of the institution, they'll
                   magically become functional.  The thought process is really
                   the same as Willie's--"the only reason there are homeless
                   people is that no one has given them a kick in the ass."
                   I'm sure Willie's campaign will be as much of a success
                   as Ronnie's.  -tom
                   \_ So you meant those 6-foot 200-pound muscular healthy-
                      looking homeless men can't get jobs at a moving company
                      or a wearhouse?  They look like I need more food than
                      they do.
                        \_ har har.  -tom
        \_ The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as
           the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and
           to steal bread.

1/15    How feasible is it to work for a professor as an RA, programmer, or
        sys adm after you've graduated? How's the pay?  -graduating senior
        \_ Dunno about RA but the others fall under Programmer/Analyst.  The
           department will need to open a job req, take resumes from the public
           for a period of time, interview a minimum number of candidates and
           then justify hiring you for the job.  The pay is very far below
           industry assuming you can get an industry job.  You may or may not
           work as much as the typical industry person depending on the prof.

1/15    How can I setup my router so that it will take in both my AT&T AtHome
        IP and my internal corporate DSL (intranet)? Do I need a switch or
        a bridge of some sort?                          -network clueless
        \_ thats a pretty complex networking problem.  You need a router
           machine( could be a Linux or other opensource OS system) with 3
           ether ports to take the traffice and sort out the routing.  Then
           you need to set it up with NAT or somesuch to translate things
           so that the single 'inside' ip address you use at home gets
           translated right so traffic to your corporate DSL thinks you're
           inside it for traffic going to corporate networks, and then
           dumps the rest of the traffic out your at hom3 connection. -ERic
                \_ and you have to be careful not to tell anyone at work
                   about it because you'll get your ass fired for exposing
                   the corporate network to the world.  -tom
                   \_ if they cared then no-clue lad wouldn't have dsl direct
                      to the inside of the corp net anyway.

1/15    Ok then, pave the whole fucking place.  Animals.
        \_ Yeah, at least civilized people have the decency to use tanks,
           gunships, and bulldozers.

1/15    This is too funny.  Go to and find the
        Flash movie halfway down and see the story of Meg A. Byte the
        software pirate.
        \_ That's hilarious.  I especially like how they ripped of a few games
           in the video.  Nothing makes the point better than hypocrisy.

1/15    How come we don't need to make a
        secure page?
        \_ offer to buy the CSUA an SSL certificate so that we don't
           have to deal with stupid idiots who don't know how to deal
           with self-signed keys.
