 2002/12/12-13 [Uncategorized] UID:26794 Activity:high ```12/11 Following up: I just did this problem last week again for fun. \_ for fun? you must be really great at a party or out on a date! My wife thinks I'm a pretty good date _/ thank you very much, and hers is really the only opinion that counts on the matter. Yes, I read the Feynman lectures in my spare time. So what? \_ So who is she dating? What's her id on the casual encounters board at craig'slist? I've got 2 bucks. \_ CE is so yesterday on CL. Go for Erotic Services. Turns out the max force (when the last bit of the chain hits the scale) is twice the weight. I've verified this experimentally. The weight v. time is: f(t) = (m/l)*(gt)^2 m = mass, l=length, g = gravity \_ what did you do "experimentally"? --psb \_ what did you do "experimentally"? --psb \_ I took a chain of non-negligible mass, and watched it as it hit the scale. The maximum force reached twice the weight of the chain when it was done (and of course rapidly went to zero \_ Also, interesting followup to the ladder-against-the-wall: what is the final horizonatal velocity of the ladder? What if the wall weren't there? afterwards). \_ Also, interesting followup to the ladder-against-the-wall: what is the final horizonatal velocity of the ladder? What if the wall weren't there?```

which opens a new window properly, but the post variables aren't available. Is there a different way to do this? \_ --dbushong```
 2002/12/12-13 [Recreation/Food] UID:26796 Activity:very high ```12/11 Hello I will be operating out of the westwood area this weekend. If you have some suggestions for bars/cafe/cheep restaurants/used book facilities or live music locations or other things to do, pls advice. ok tnx. --psb \_ There are lots of easy women hanging around Koreatown who like being picked up by strangers. The only problem is most aren't Korean. \_ for entertainment: compute your water use while in socal, and figure out how much the american taxpayer spent to bring it to you in the middle of a fucking desert. \_ As if Hetch Hetchy were free, and not the destruction of part of Yosemite. \_ walk on Westwood and you'll see. Also drive on Santa Monica. Lots of restaurants and asian massage parlors. Westwood is a great place. I'm happier here than when I was at ucb -ucla ee guy \_ The PSB does not go to jack shacks. \_ "jack shacks" = asian massage parlors? Never heard this term but it's funny. I love the motd. \_ Santa Monica is worth visiting. The 3rd St. Promonade area has a couple of interesting bookstores (one specializing in architecture/art books). The Main St. part of Santa Monica down by Venice also has a couple of good bars. And while you are in LA definately see the Museum of Jurassic Technology in Culver City: http://www.mjt.org There's great cheap Indian food by the MJT. \_ I heard about that museum on NPR. I hear it's a crock. \_ Didi reese in Westwood is good, cheap ice cream & cookies. there are two hookah joints right next to it. Forgot the street name, but it's very close to ucla off gayley. --ucla biomed guy \- ok tnx for the suggestions. keep them coming. does the art book location have photography books? also are they full price? these days unless something is truely rare you can find stuff online ... so things are price dominated rather than availability dominated. i am not interested in ho facilites. yes i appreciate there are a lot of restuarants but i was looking for suggestions. there are a lot of restuarants on shattuck between university and rose but what would you recommend for a fast cheep lunch other than cheeseboard and gregoire? ok tnx. --psb \_ Sushi Ishiin is one block north of Wilshire, (forget the street name, I always walk) near Westwood intersection. It is a darn decent sushi place. It is across the street from Palomino, if you ever get the craving for Skates-esque food. There are also a lot of good Persian restaurants in the area, I think one of them is called "chelo kebab" but once again, am not sure, since I'm usually walking, and following someone else's lead. --chris \- are the super-expensive sushi places? craving for skates- esque ... ??? why would you go there for anything but the view or unless someone else is paying? it's not awful but there are pareto superior places all around --psb```

Since you didn't, it's your loss for missing it. So, uhm, no. I don't Do you?```
 2002/12/12-13 [Computer/HW/Drives] UID:26798 Activity:nil ```12/12 I'm looking for a site like http://vcdtraders.com that sells vintage american (70s, 80s) XXX movies in VCD format. I can find plenty that sells them in VHS tapes. That's useless for me. I want them in VCD format. I know that it's bootleg and violate copyright laws. This is a serious request. I've done extensive searching and can't find any. \_ Sounds like a good way to make some cash on the side. Seriously, ever consider contacting the publishers of the tapes and offering a VCD burning service? If you don't mind being a miserable child-molesting PORN PEDDLER, that is -John```
 2002/12/12-13 [Uncategorized/Multicategory] UID:26799 Activity:kinda low ```12/12 Ahh, Berkeley's net connection saturated again.... \_ It looks like there is some saturation, but the net problems of the past couple of days are probably due to denial-of-service \_ What denial of service attack? attacks, rather than traffic volume. There's some slop in our network capacity; if we're at capacity, usenet traffic (15% of the total) gets deprioritized. Right now the bottleneck is the link to the Packeteer box itself, which is limited to 100 megabits but is being upgraded. -tom \_ The whole campus only gets 100mb/sec? \_ The campus, except the reshalls (which have their own pipe), and SETI@Home (which also does), currently has 100 megabits to the commodity Internet (that is, everything that's not Internet 2). -tom \_ By the way, does the EECS have it's own connection to commodity Internet or do they share this connection with the rest of campus? \_ I believe there are a couple of research links directly into EECS, but most of their traffic travels over the same nets as everyone else. -tom```
