8/25    mjm's mutt process has gone crazy again.
        \_ so?
           \_ curious what that boy is doing with mutt.
                \_ Doggy style
           \_ mjm killed the process and is going back to pine.  He wants
              to hear no more positive comparisons for mutt over pine.
              \_ Who told him to use mutt?  It's a POS.  If you want something
                 that's powerful, flexible, *never* runs wild buring cpu/memory
                 *and* has a community of people willing to help more than just
                 scream "pine sucks, use mutt!" you want mh/nmh.  So much for
                 the mutt experiment.  If you'd had mh problems people would've
        \_ mjm, what caused the switch back?
           \_ if my ssh connection is broken while in mutt, it starts
              eating up all the CPU (90%).

8/24    What do you call it when the immigrants outnumber the natives?
        \_ Rotterdam, Amsterdam, and, of course, all of USA ;)
           \_ Everyone in Europe is from somewhere else.  There are no natives.
              \_ Perhaps you should make use of a dictionary and look up
                 'native' as it applies to this context.
                 \_ Perhaps you should stick your head in a pig you anal
                    retentive fuck.  And make use of a dictionary and look up
                    'anal retentive fuck' as it applies in this context.
           \_ go back far enough, and everyone on the planet (except maybe
              africa) is from somewhere else.
              \_ You *really* still believe that out-of-africa crap?  The
                 evidence doesn't support it.  Australia's timeline doesn't
                 fit at all and people were in N/S America before the ice
                 bridge formed.
                 \_ sorry, try again. ... and maybe read _Guns_Germs_and_
                    Steel_ first.
           \_ I think you miss the historical and political implications.

8/24    What preprocessor is needed for man files that ends with suffix "x"?
        \_ rpcgen
           \_ this sounds funny because rpcgen generates C code rather than
              man page.
           \_ this is funny because rpcgen generates C code rather than
              input for nroff out of manpage files.
2002/8/25 [Politics/Domestic/911, Computer/SW/Languages/Perl] UID:25678 Activity:high
        \_ Ok so someone can figure out the one line of perl required to
           replace 99% of cnn's front page with "Zilla".  So?
           \_ Do Not Question Ping. Ping Is Leeter Than Thou. -ping #1 fan
           \_ i dunno. it's funnier at 1 am on a friday. there was also
              something kind of deep about the absurdification of the bin laden
              news but I forgot what it was.
        \_ Malkovich malkovich?

8/25    4600: 233 now vs 9700pro's loss lead 374.33 in maybe a week or two.
        \_ that sounds like something Hitler might say.

8/25    What's wrong with 'quota'?
        \_ Running it causes your terminal to go screwy.  Ctrl-[d,c,z]
           won't get you out of it.
           \_ Yes, I knew that.  The question is why.   -op
        \_ scotch.csua is hosed, hosing nfs mounts, hosing things like df.

8/26    Where can I find an online catalog of photographs for a web
        site?  I need a business, finance sort of theme.  Thanks

8/26    I just installed Slackware linux on a toshiba laptop. How do I make
        "alt" key act like the "meta key"?
