9/2     what's a good ripper+mp3 encoder for macos (not os x) ?
        I am unhappy with how iTunes shortens track names.
        \_ macos (not os x) has a limit of 32 character filenames.
           are you sure it's a problem with iTunes?
           \_ MacOS<x sucks ass.
        \_ Try Audion from  -=Aubie

9/2     <DEAD><DEAD>
        Come see 12th Night.  Me playing guitar, girls in skimpy clothes,
        free beer...  Oh, and a really good show.  --scotsman
        \_ I think the Secretary should apologize for that comment.
           \_ free beer?  Because half the csua is underage?
              \_ ...if by "underage" you mean under 30, you may be right.
        \_ Only if you post pics with those girls in skimpy clothes.
           \_ Cast photos are restricted by Actor's Equity rules.  Sorry.
              if free beer and skin aren't enough of a draw, then we don't
              want you. --scotsman
                \_ well you're pretty damned picky aren't ya?  do the girls
                   at least do lap dances and private message?
                                              \_ You'll have to give us
                                                 your ICQ number for that.
                                                        \_ oh baby!

9/2     Is there a free X-server for M$-Windows?
        \_ Try XFree86 for cygwin.
             \_ cygwin is really slow on my pentium 133. Will X be slow too?
                I know, it's time to get a new computer, but I'm waiting to
                see what happens with osX.
                \_ Um, what's *not* gonna be slow on a p133?
                    \_ windows 95 and Linux-XFree86 3.3.6, which brings up
                       another question: what ways are there to speed up
                       Xfree86 4.2.0?
                \_ You're going to be waiting a long time for x86/osx if that's
                   what you're looking for.  You'll still be forced to buy
                   over priced apple hardware to run it.
                      \_ I'm not waiting for x86/osx. Apple wants control
                         of everything. It won't happen. I'm waiting to
                         see if Apple improves Aqua. to the point of it not
                         making me puke.
                         \_ Uhm, if its puke now, what are the odds they're
                            going to change it so radically you'll suddenly
                            love a refit version with some bug fixes and extra
                            "we love steve!" subliminals in the icons?
        \_ XManager. not free, but low cost. still works for "free" even
           after the trial period.
        \_ not a direct answer to your question... but on you
           should be able to download Exceed for free... check
           \_ only if you have a calnet id
                \_ a what?  -alum
        \_ Micro-Images X-server $25 free for mac
