10/25   Anyone know where I can find a user manual on the Brief text editor?
        hard to search on the word 'brief' on google.  :(
        \_ try using keywords "brief text editor"
                              \_ get clue
           \- you can use emacs brief modes. --psb
                              \_ thanks psb, you rock
                \_ It appears that the answer to every text editor
                   question is "emacs...."
                   \- ^text editor^
        \_ ED!

10/25   Democrat dies is a plane crash off setting the Rep/Dem balance of
        power. The republicans did it.
        \_ Yeah, the Dems have 3 dead people running in this election--
           Wellstone, the senator in Hawaii, and Toricelli (oh wait, he just
           \_ that Democractic missouri candidate died too and won.  Ashcroft
              lost that race.

10/25   Is the economy really that bad?  Young people want to know.
        Not really.  The run from 93-2000 was the greatest economic
        expansion ever.  Anyone who got used to that is way off of
        the historical norms.  Right now is slightly worse than the
        recession of 90-92, but not by much.  Expect at least another
        6 months of pain in the software market, maybe slightly more
        in hardware.
        \_ just got a job, cmlee?
                \_ huh? who are you? i've turned into a vc now.
                   \_ With whose money?
                      \_ yermoms of course
                         \_ More likely his moms.

10/25   When I hit <DEAD>localhost:1214<DEAD> (Kazaa port) it works ok. But
        when I go to <DEAD>:1214/ it no longer works. Whys that?
        \_ What IP?
        \_ Is the kazaa server listening on <ip>:1214? You can check
           with netstat or something.
        \_ Packet filter/personal firewall?

10/25   is there some sourceforge project that integrates
        a mailing list, file sharing capabilities, member
        profiles, etc... basically i'm looking for a replacement
        for a yahoogroups type mailing list.
        \- gnu mailman is somewhat extensible. --psb
        \_ Emacs has this, M-x set yahoo-replacement mode on

10/25   There should be a recall on browsers that implement style sheets
        incorrectly like Netscape 4.x. It's hampering progress.
        \_ A recall?  It's the client side.  If they don't like the broken
           page they'll upgrade.
