9/9     Anybody here been to an IETF meeting?  I'm planning to go to the
        next one and I'm wondering what it's like.  Thanks.
        \-yes, it dpedns a lot on whether someine like say DJB shows up.--psb
        \-yes, it dependsa lot on whether someone like say DJB shows up.--psb
          \_ who exactly are you referring to?  Who is DJB?
             \_ http://cr.yp.to/djb.html
          \_ Is that a D or a T?
             \_ Foolish Mortal!  Question Not The psb!!! --psb #1 Fan
                \_ From a personality point of view it doesn't make a
                   whole lot of difference. -- acquainted with [td]jb

9/9     Anybody know of any decent/honest Toyota mechanic in Fremont area?
        Preferably close to Mowry and 880. TIA.
        \_ My dad always took ours to a Vietnamese family-owned shop
           on Blacow and Central (across from the Arco).  They always
           did decent work and were very reasonable.
        \_ Purfect auto on mowry and fremont blvd
        \_ Well, there's the Toyota dealer at 880 and Auto Mall...

9/9     What's the difference between a skeleton and a stub?
        A stub is a client-size proxy representing a remote function,
        right?  Then what is the skeleton used for?
        \_ the skeleton is the other bit of the function, the one that is
           run on the server.

9/9     Thank you letter writing hint: keep it simple, do not go off like some
        bumbling idiot at the end telling them the source of your nick name,
        do not use lines like "I really enjoyed it as much as any interview
        can be enjoyed" or talk about their 'diverse' backgrounds.  That PC
        shit is garbage once you leave the ivory tower.  Keep it to a simple
        thank you and mention something about their company and why you're
        The One and that you look forward to hearing from them.  Blah.
        \_  Thank you very much for your contribution to the motd.  i simply
            *loved* reading it.  reading your post really made my day.
            did i ever tell you where i got the nickname "troller"? well,
            it all started in college when i decided to get a csua account.
            it's really a great story(see attatched pages.)  among the
            many fantastic skills i learned in college was facilitating
            diversity through...oh, god i just can't continue.
        \_ Thanks. This must be the first time in known history that someone
           volunteered potentially useful advice on the motd without
           provocation. And no, the rest of you should not bother making a
           "that's trivial" or "that's lame advice" thread.
           \_ I loved it!  It was better than Cats!  I could see it again and
              again!
                \_ but you still haven't told me where you got your
                   nickname from.
        \_ Yeah forget that shit. Stick to offering blowjobs.

9/9     Who makes the Cinema displays for Apple? --dim
        \_ Didn't Apple sign a $100 Mil. Deal with Samsung? Think
           they make the LCDs. -=Aubie
           \_ I've read it's either LG or Samsung, but have no definite facts.
              \_ we're so glad you showed up.

9/9     I'm recompiling the Linux kernel on a slow laptop. I have the
        kernel configured to use modules and it successfully compiled. I
        encountered an error during the modules_install. I want to recompile
        less modules. Do I need to recompile the kernel also?
        \_ Do you mean 'less modules' in the sense of 'using fewer modules'
           or 'minus the modules'?  In the first case, not necessarily,
           unless you want the kernel to do the stuff the missing modules
           did.  In the second, I think yes, if want to remove module
           support from the kernel altogether.  Can you compile the
           kernel on a faster machine?  -John
            \_ good point. I meant "fewer modules". There are just a lot
               of modules that get compiled by default: things I don't
               need. I'll still be using modules. I don't own a faster
               machine with linux, but I have some accounts. Hmmm. Thx.

9/10    no security on soda? I wrote a private personal thank you
        note in my own directory, next thing i know it's posted on
        motd. I guess we can't keep anything personal or private
        on soda.
        \_ permissions?
           \_doh!
           \_ even if permissions are not set to user only, you might
              want to respect their privacy and not snoop around.  Just a
              thought.
              \_ for there to be an invasion of privacy, there has to be an
                 attempt to have kept it private.  leaving your files world
                 readable in no way sets the expection of privacy
              \_ and we should avert our eyes from your window when you're
                 singing, naked, with the blinds up...  If you can't figure
                 out file perms, don't expect anything to stay private.
           \_ /csua/adm/doc/policies/general
              on the other hand, in the spirit of this being a community
              (kind of), I generally dislike nazi'd permissions.  If you have
              really sensitive stuff, it shouldn't be on soda.csua in the
              first place.
              \_ where should it be, then?

9/10    Where can I learn how to write LaTeX style files? I already
        searched the web, but couldn't find any sort of "how-to"
        or tutorial pages.
        \_ This one is pretty good.  Print it out for best results.

9/10    You can do better than troll boy. Try Again.
        \_ No.  It's real and it's restored.  Sorry your life/job are so
           boring.  Not everyone lives your boring shitty sexless life.  I
           wouldn't be the first person getting laid in this or any other
           company with their boss or anyone else.

9/10    My manager got flowers from her husband today for "being really really
        good".  Listening in on her phone call they had their first three way
        last night.  She's really hot.  She's made a few comments about me in
        *that* way.  What should I do?
        \_ Get a grip.  She's your boss.
        \_ I envy you!!!  If I were you, I'd definitely go for it if it's her
           and me only.  But no thanks if it's a threesome with her husband.
           BTW how is she hot?
           As for inappropriate relationships at work, I think she'll be in
           bigger trouble than you are since she's the superior one.  So I
           wouldn't worry too mich.  BTW how is she hot?
        \_ Don't pass up an oppurtunity such as this.  Sue her for sexual
           harassment.
           \_ You can't successfully sue anyone for some random comments.
              You'll get laughed out of court *and* lose your job.
              \_ *pshaw*  No lawyer in their right mind would take the case.
           \_ Sexual harrassment is very hard to prove. You need to establish
              an ongoing pattern of incidents and prove you felt your job was
              at risk because of said harrassment.
              \_ How about some "entrapment"?
                 \_ I doubt she's an FBI agent or local police.

9/10    When a guy says that he can bench press 130 lbs, what exactly does
        that mean?  Doing 130 lbs for how many reps?  Is there a standard
        way people talk about this.  And a related question, I can bench
        my body weight now (130 lbs).  Is this considered "strong"?  Again,
        I'm looking for rules of thumbs of what a normal or strong guy
        should be benching.
        \_ 130 lbs?!!! You must either be really short for a guy or anorexic.
           I would suggest that you eat more. Most guys weight at least 150
           lbs by college.
           \_ I'm the guy with 8% body fat.  I weigh 130 but I don't look
              skinny. There's almost no lard on me.
           \_ Most guys can compose grammatically correct sentences by college,
              as well.
              \_ By whose grammar is that sentence incorrect?  Zsa Zsa Gabor's?
                 And what's with the superfluous comma? --scotsman
        \_ it either means they rep with that weight or they can max
           out at that weight. if someone asked you what you rep with,
           you'd obviously tell them that amount. but if they don't
           specify, and you wanted to show off, you'd probably tell
           them what you can max (which will likely be more than
           what you rep with). as far as rules of thumb, they say
           approximately, to be "strong", you should bench (rep) your
           weight and a half.
           \_ damn, 1.5 times your body weight to be considered "strong"?
              Let's see how long before I can bench 195!  My weight will
              increase as I reach that target though. so the 1.5 * weight
              will only become a real goal when I start plateauing.
           \_ Hmm, I don't think I'll ever be benching 300.  I guess I'll
              never be strong.
              \_ With that sort of attitude, you're probably right.
        \_ When a guy says he can press X many pounds, he's saying he wants
           your hot man meat action in the gym's shower.
