1/27    So what's the functional difference between /csua/bin/webfmt and
        /usr/bin/fmt ? They seem pretty close to identical.
        \_ try using fmt with text cut/pasted from netscape

        \_ Thank you danh!
           \_ Who says danh posted this?  -!danh
              \_ Hi reiffin. Haven't you heard? The MOTD gets logged; it
                 hasn't been really anonymous for many years.
                 \_ Aside from RCS log (which doesn't log the user) how
                    is the motd logged?
                 \_ Yes I know it's logged and not really anonymous.  And you
                    feel really smart posting about this?  Yes, you 'caught'
                    me posting a joke URL.  What's your point?
        \_ Did someone fix the flat tires on the car afterwards?

1/27    Anybody used the XML Resume Library for their resumes?
        \_ XML is the panacea to all your resume woes!  Its pretty
           awesome, actually- joshk

1/27    Broke my arm when I went skiing this weekend. Anyone used Dragon
        Speak or other software? I need to type for work and I'll be in a
        cast for a while. Thanks                -1 hand typist
           \_ More dvorak advocacy:  There is a 1 handed dvorak layout,
              works with either hand.  It was designed for people with
              disabilities, poor skiing skills specifically being one of
                \_ Do broken arms work with cable modem?
                   \_ No.  There's a "two hands only" policy for AT&T cable
                      users to prevent pr0n viewing.
                      \_ And there's a reason for that: you can't touch both
                         the mouse and johnny with only one hand.
                         \_ Explanation redundant.  Are you stupid?
                \_ there's also a qwerty half-keyboard.
        \_ I broke my hand skiing, and I found that by the time I was off
           enough of the drugs that I could type coherently again, I'd
           gotten proficient enough with a normal qwerty that I was fine.
           then again, I have the problem regularly enough that I'm actually
           farily used to one-handed typing. -chialea

1/27    Anyone know a good business card printer in the area?
        Don't say vistaprint. --scotsman
        \_ Out of curiosity, why not vistaprint?

1/27    Bush has heart trouble.  White House hides Bush medical info.  I think
        all Presidential medical info should be public.

1/28    Are there any unix-based scripts that will periodically check a
        webpage to see if it has changed?  I know such a tool is not that
        complex to write, but why reinvent the wheel?  Thanks.
        \_ some hints:  lynx > out.  diff.  cron.  notify (email probably).
        \_ I think that you can have curl and wget send an IMS header.
           \_ Damn... stop with the curl thing.  You don't need to install and
              learn yet-another-scripting-language to do something this
              trivial.  Curl is not going to change the universe.
              \_ Are you confusing curl the unix utility with curl the
                 stupid scripting language from MIT?
              \_ curl is a little pgm like wget that is installed on
                 most BSD systems as part of the base or via the ports.
                 My experience is that it is easier to get curl to send
                 arbitrary headers than with wget.
                 I don't know where you got this scripting language thing
                 \_ Oh you're right.  My bad.  Yes, I thought you were talking
                    about the new 'kewl' scripting language from MIT.
        \_ if this is for a personal use check <DEAD><DEAD>
        \_ There's an HTTP header specifically for this ("If-Modified-Since").
           It'd take less time to write the script than to ask.
