2/12    Its been asked before and will probably be asked again...
        Where is a good place to get your car washed in the Berkeley
        area? (not Touchless on  Oxford)
        \_ bucket. hoser. sponge.
           \_ that would work... but 1-2 hours of my time is worth
              ~$10 to me. additionally, I don't have one of those
               high power vacuums with attachments.
               \_ while I see your points, it won't take 1-2 hours and
                  if you do it yourself, it'll be much better.
                  Then again you need space and time.
                  If you have a girlfriend you could have her help you
                  and take photographs to post on the web.

2/12    My VAIO laptop seems to be hosed.  It runs fine on AC power, but
        randomly shuts off when running on battery power.  I'm pretty sure
        it's not the battery because this behavior has been repeated with
        several different batteries.  Does anyone know what might cause
        this sort of behavior?  Does anyone have any experience dealing with
        Sony support or service centers?  It looks seems painful and
        expensive.  Should I just give up now, use the VAIO as a paper weight,
        and sell one of my kidneys on the black market to fund the purchase of
        an iBook?
2002/2/13-14 [Computer/SW/OS/Windows] UID:23857 Activity:low
2/13    Are there any "official" NT books / references on learning the
        following?
        - kernel-mode programming in general
        - kernel-mode device drivers (same thing as above?)
        - user-mode programming.
        I've seen a couple good books on kernel-mode drivers, but they don't
        look like they're published by Micro$oft (because sometimes they say
        bad things about NT.)  Thank you.
        \_ http://Amazon.com.  B&N.  Whatever.  Same as always.

2/13    "Jetliner Lust Attracts F-16s".  AKA: Don't get busted having sex in
        the airplane bathroom while coked up on a long flight.

        \_ bah!  i doubt that if the two people involved are of the
           opposite sex and american citizents they would do anything.
           \_ So you think this is anti-british discrimination or anti-gay
              discrimination?  I think it's anti-stupid discrimination.
              \_ i don't think it's any kind of discrimination. i just
                 want to know my chances of being sent to jail for
                 exale the crack smoke.  -sky
                 screwing my wife in the bathroom on the plane, and
                 i asess thosw chances as being close to zero.
                 \_ sure but try going to the b/r 5 times together while
                    coked up during a high security alert.
        \_ How did they smoke pot in the restroom and not set off the smoke
           detector?
           \_ Not pot. Crack.
              \_ You stick your head in the toliet and flush everytime you
                 exale the crack smoke.  -sky "i've been banned from
                 a major airline"

2/13    Who will win best actor?
        \_ russell
        \_ p. nunez.
           \_ if only!  I'm weary of this hollywood navel-gazing.  -PeterM
              \_ They need something to keep them busy.
              \_ don't be so crabby PeterM.  You sound like such a crotchety
                 old man.
              \_ then perhaps you should stop.
        \_ does it matter? oscars are nothing more than self-pats-on-the
           back and do not reflect anything but the liberal masses of the
           academy
           \_ Are we that peeved that Arnie never won an Oscar?
           \_ You and Rush Limbaugh are soooo cool.
              \_ Hey Genius, you trying to say Hollywood is anything but 99.9%
                 liberal?  You're on the same planet with the rest of us,
                 right?  The one where Hollywood is Left and proud of it?
                 \_ Yes, I am saying that. How many former Hollywood
                    movie stars turned Republican politicians? I can
                    think of four without even trying hard, starting
                    with the Right's Darling Boy, Reagan. Turn off that
                    Limbaugh and read something a bit more balanced, like
                    maybe the Wall Street Journal.
                    \_ WSJ balanced? Propagandist of the capitalist world? HA!
           \_ No, it's more than that.  It's an indicator of which actresses
              / actors have been sleeping around with the judges the most.
           \_ what a radical opinion...wow, you must be intelligent.
              \_ Stating the obvious doesn't make the poster stupid.
                \_ yeah those damn liberals gave a bunch of oscars to that
                   damn communist propaganda "schindler's list"
                   \_ WTF are you smoking?  What does SL have to do with
                      *anything*?  You're aware the Nazi's were... oh ya know
                      what?  Just nevermind.  Go find a history book.  Sheesh.

2/13    I want to see my "Last Login" info, but not the motd, each
        time I login. How do I configure this?
2002/2/13-14 [Computer/SW/Security, Computer/SW/Unix] UID:23861 Activity:high 54%like:23860
2/13    Each time I login, I would like to see my "Last Login" info, but
        not the motd. How do I do this?
        \_ Edit the .login file in your home directory. If you still see
           the motd scroll by, create a file called ".hushlogin" in your
           homedir (`touch .hushlogin` will do).
            \_ Right, but with .hushlogin I don't see my "Last Login"
               I can't seem to quell only the motd.  Can I set something
               like "no-motd" in my .login?  Also, my "Last Login" info
               gets shoved off the screen before I get a chance to read it.
               Why is that?
               Why is that? -brett (thanks & sorry)
               \_ Sign your name and make ur .login public so we can
                  help you.  Perhaps you have a 'clear' command in it.
                    \_ Okay.

2/13    Is it possible to install NT Checked build on a machine that's already
        running the Free build?  When I tried installing it keeps on
        blue-screening after it asks me to reboot to continue installation.
        Thx.
        \_ Apparently not.  -sky
