Berkeley CSUA MOTD
2002/2/2 [Computer/SW/Security, Computer/SW/OS/Windows] UID:23750 Activity:nil
2/1     Idiots Dos the World Economic Forum website.  Claim some sort of
        bizarre victory.
        \_ See next motd topic.

2/1     You should've got a Dell, dude!
        \_ what's funny is that until i went to that link just now,
           i thought that the phrase "dude, you should have got a dell"
           was entirely of motd origin.  that is how far out of touch i
           am, apparently.
                \_ shit, come to think of it me too.
           \_ yes, after all, for many of us, motd is the main form of
              social interaction.
        \_ that's awesome. he's hilarious...
2002/2/2 [Finance/Shopping] UID:23752 Activity:low
2/1     Where can I get a used stereo receiver? Craigslist seems to be a poor
        choice on this one. Anyone willing to sell me theirs cheap?
        \_ email?
        \_ how cheap?
           \_ $25 ?
2002/2/2 [Academia/GradSchool] UID:23753 Activity:moderate
2/1     GRE analytical is going away this year!!! Is the new replacement
        \_ sourceP
              Isn't google great?  I wish you would learn to use it.
                \_ thx. My concern is GRE is already $100 even though it's
                   a highly automated test. With the writing test, how much
                   is it going to cost us poor students?
        \_ I've also heard that they will be introducing a writing section
           (where one must actually write an essay)... anyone know if this
           is true?
           \_ Are you sure you're not thinking about the PSAT (which did this
              circa '98 or '99)?
              \_ I've definately heard rumors of this being introduced to
                 the GRE... though I've heard nothing to substantiate this.
2002/2/2-5 [Reference/Tax] UID:23754 Activity:nil
2/3     Anybody tried using turbo tax to do taxes that require schedule C?
        I'm wondering if it's any good.  I've also seen a turbo tax "small
        business edition".  How different is it from the standard TT?  Thanks.
                \_ yes. yes. same shit with more text.
2002/2/2 [Politics/Domestic/President/Clinton, Politics/Domestic/Crime, Politics/Domestic/President/Bush] UID:23755 Activity:high
2/1     Justice orders White House to preserve all Enron documents.  And here I
        thought it was the job of the Justice Department to stall, delay, and
        protect criminal activity in the Executive branch....  Speaking of
        which, Janet Reno is still going to run for Florida Governor even after
        her little episode on stage.
        \_ This is the COMPUTER Science Undergraduate Organization, not the
           Political Science Undergrad Association.
           \_ The "sue uh"?
        \_ Take your boring politics elsewhere.
           \_ "dude!  a new linux kernel is out!  quick!  post it to the motd!
              first!! first!!"  Get over it.  You can't hide in a machine room
              or computer lab your entire life.  Join the human race.  BTW, why
              aren't you bitching about all the other things on the motd that
              aren't specifically nerd oriented?
              \_ You should've got a Dell, dude!
        \_ Don't forget the head of the GAO is a former board member
           of Arthur Andersen, appointed in 1998 by who else?
        \_ Don't forget the head of the GAO, Walker, is a former board member
           of Arthur Andersen, appointed in 1998 by who else?  And don't
           forget it was the same GAO who did not sue Gore over
           his Buddhist temple and other 1996 campaign finance
           violations (read taking money from the PLA).

2/1     Demron?
2002/2/2 [Recreation/Computer/Games] UID:23757 Activity:nil
2/2     Gaming in Los Altos this saturday.  How many gamers are there
        in the CSUA?  (not computer games):
        \- I would do an East Bay ATOMIC ENCOUNTER if there is interest.
           Is fear-the-void@sloda still active? ok thx, --psb (13-2 at CE)
