9/27    dow suffers biggest drop ever!
        \_ Which, precisely, is the brand of crack you're smoking?
           \_ this person probably wants to get a high from you responding
              to him (or her).
                \_ it's cmlee.

9/27    Google rocks. The toolbar has an option to suppress popups.
        \_ You mean you're still using IE?  Why put yourself through that?
           \_ Nice try, troll harder.
              \_ It was trollish but still true.  --!the same person

9/27    Firefly second episode or already seen Starship Troopers on no-nudie
        cable?  Survey says... no-nudie Starship Troopers rerun >> Firefly new
        \_ I hate you so much.
           \_ I switched back n forth during ST commercials.  ST was way
              better.  FF = lame.  Yes I know it doesn't really follow the
              \_ I loathe you with every cell in my body.

9/28    ditch jbuilder and switch to eclipse!
        \_ No way,  VB++ is the only way to go!
        \_ IDEA from intellij is pretty cool.
           \_ I agree, it's pretty nice.
        \_ IDE of any kind is for th sissies... real man uses VI
           \_ ED!  ED!  ED is the STANDARD!  Development environment.
           \_ real man codes in direct binary machine code
                \_ so i take it you're not a real man.
                   \_ i take it you don't know the difference between
                      code and data.

9/28    Has anyone tried to reach inside China?
        Those who are inside the mainland, please let me know.
        \_ Since China has decided to go opensource it would be really stupid
           of them to cut themselves off from sourceforge, no?

9/28    Happy Teacher's day (Confucius' birthday)
        \_ Yeah right.  When it's a national holiday and I don't have to work
           I'll care.  Yes.  I am working today.

9/28    The U.N. has finally found its calling
        \_ The UN already found its calling years ago.  They go into countries
           suffering some sort of civil strife, set up camps and 'safe' zones
           and then rape the local women, sell them as sex slaves or force
           them into prostitution all under the guise of European-quality
           higher-moral standards and saving the day.  The UN has served out
           its useful life and needs to be replaced by a different org.

9/28    I don't normally read the national review but this is food for thought
        if you ignore the obvious Clinton baiting aspect.  The underlying
        premise is a real possibility for the future.

9/28    I installed mysql 3.23.52_1 via pkg_add and I'm trying to set the
        root password-- but I don't know the default password.  This is a
        fresh installation, and I'm using
% /usr/local/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'blah'
/usr/local/bin/mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: NO)'
% /usr/local/bin/mysqladmin -u root -p password 'blah'
        Also fails, because I don't know the stinking password.  I've tried
        the system's root password, "root", "toor", and various foul

9/28    Gives a whole new meaning to the concept of "being on the hotseat".   <DEAD><DEAD> -urld
        \_ THis story is about weapons grade uranium being smuggled through
           Turkey.  Iraq borders on turkey.
           \_ Damn, do you mean... No, it can't be! Is that bastard Saddam
              trying to sneak all the uranium out of his country before
              the UN inspectors arrive?
              \_ It probably won't seem quite so funny when the *port* of
                 Oakland goes up in a mushroom cloud....
                 \_ I hereby give you permission to say "I told you so" when
                    this happens.  I hereby also give you notice that I'm
                    calling TIPS on your ass then, too, MotdTerrorist.
                    \_ Wow you're really funny.  It's always a good idea to
                       make light of a serious situation.  That way you impress
                       your friends with your bravado, get a false sense of
                       security, and get to feel really clever all at the same
                       time!  Wanna hook up?  You're cute!
                       \_ If it makes you happy to spout doom and gloom
                          scenarios without providing some shred of evidence
                          as to the feasibility of said scenarios, then the
                          least you can do is expect people to take the piss
                          out of you for doing so.  And don't point to the 50
                          page Blair Witch Dossier as evidence unless you want
                          to be made light of some more.
                          \_ Now go away, or I shall taunt you a second time!
                          \_ Yeah 33 lbs of weapons grade uranium on it's way
                             to...?  No evidence of anything funny going on.
                             Don't worry at all about that smoke smell if you
                             can't see the fire.
                             \_ Christ, are you the reactionary apple gravity
                                guy?  You really need to take a vacation or
