3/25    Freedom of speech at work
        \_ You know how you say "Fox News" in Arabic? "Al-Jazeera."
           \_ If anything, Al Jazeera is one news agency which really
              worth respect.  It was being attacked by all fronts in the
              Middle East, and it's unfortunate that US has join the rank
              when the freedom of speech no longer serve their interest
              \_ Thanks, that was good to know.
              \_ The basic problem Americans have with Al Jazeera is its
                 tendency to emphasize Palestinian suffering over its
                 suicide bombers:  "They blow themselves up because the
                 Jews give them no hope" rationalization.  But that's what
                 the viewers want.
                 \_ well why do you think they blow themselves up?
                    extreme boredom?
                    \_ get clue: it's brainwashing.
                 \_ what, you don't think blowing themselves up is done
                    out of hopelessness?  Who are you?
                    \_ see above.  there are plenty of people with less hope
                       in the world and none of them are blowing up kids in
                       pizza parlors and dance halls.

3/24    I have not been using C/C++ for the last 5 years.  I am wondering if
        there's something like the Perl De/Serializer for C/C++.
           \_ What about something like ResourceBundle in Java?
        \_ of course not. mabye you should take a civics class, you ignorant
           liberal stooge.

3/24    After we defeated Germany and Japan in WWII, we occupied the countries
        and we helped them rebuild.  We're still there today.  Is Afghanistan
        and Iraq going to be any different?  After we bomb the hell out of them
        we're going to foot the bill and rebuild their country.  And stay
        there for the next 50 years?  Is this the so-called "Bush Doctrine"?
        \_ The Bush Doctrine is preemptive strike on countries we fear may
           give WMD to extremist groups.
           \_ When do we staring bombing North Korea?
              \_ As soon as we're done with Iraq and Bush gets tired of
                 diplomatic avenues.
                 \_ You scare the hell out of me, and it's because I'm afraid
                    you're right.
                    \_ You'd prefer what?  We let them build a few nukes each
                       year until they've tested a missile that can hit
                       California and then what?  Because of a lot of small
                       minded people we won't even have a realistic anti-ICBM
                       defense in place by then.  It'll come about 2 years
                       later which is 2 years too late for SD/LA/SF.  Poof!
                 \_ Disagree.  I think Bush will hit Iran first, since we
                    are there already.  It's cheaper to just knock Iran out
                    THEN hit N. Korea later.  I don't think UPS gave US
                    government enough of bulk discount for ferrying
                    250k troops and equipments
                    \_ I'd prefer to see Syria get smushed but I think you're
                       right about Iran.  We build up some big air bases and
                       bring in a few hundred thousand more troops then the
                       Iranian nutters get the axe.
        \_ There is no counterbalancing Soviet power so no, it won't take 50
           \_ True. The US will probably stop helping them out in a few years
              or until the spice flows again. The spice must flow!
              \_ Arrakis --> iraq
                 Shaddam IV --> Saddam
                 Feydaykin --> Feydayin
                 CHOAM --> OPEC
                 spice --> oil
                 \_ that's idiotic.  put down the lame scifi and read some
                 \_ boy that's clever.
                    \_ Ah, the geek, and geekier-than-thou.
                       \_ dammit, there must be some reason i read all six of
                          those books half a dozen times.  just let me have
                          my moment.

3/24    Will an Ultra2's processors and ram work in an Ultra 60?
        \_ any of the ultrasparc II cpu's from an ultra2 should work
           fine in an ultra60. all the memory should be fine as well.
        \_ Depends on the Ultra60, I think. Ultra60 is not descriptive
           enough. U60 spanned a long period of time with a lot of
           changes. Better question is: WHY?! Trying to scavenge parts? --dim
           \_ I managed to pick up an U60 chassis (no proc/ram) for
              free and I've got some bits from an U2 (proc/ram) along
              with some PCI hme cards. If the U2 bits work in the U60

              I was planning on install OpenBSD on it and use it as
              my server/router/firewall.
              \_ you're sick.  stop that immediately.
        \_ The memory should be compatible. I am not so sure about CPUs.
           What kind of CPUs does your Ultra 2 have? The 300MHz CPU used in
           both machines has the same part#, so it should be compatible.
           I am not so sure about the 400MHz CPUs that some Ultra 2s used.
           The UltraSPARC I CPUs (200MHz or slower) that used to come with
           older Ultra2s are definitely not compatible with Ultra 60.
        \_ Only the 300MHz are compatible btw the two. All others are
           NOT: 400,200,167MHz work for U2; 360,450 work for U60
           This is from the Sun FE Handbook which is online as the
           Sun System Handbook linked from
           Sun is frigging badass when it comes to this shit.
           \_ True, but up until a year ago, the FE Handbook costed ~$1000.

              considered anything?  I consider Al Jazeera garbage 'news' and

                 The problem with the Somalia fiasco is we turned tail and ran

3/25    Now that european countries are boycotting American products, when
        are we going to start bombing them to protect our corporate profits??
        \_ I don't think this war is primarily about oil,
           but it certainly doesn't hurt.
        \_ This war in Iraq is not primarily about corporate profits or oil.
           \_ yeah, keep telling yourself that.  and why are france and russia
              so against the war?  billions of trade and loans.  we're all
              bastards on this bus.
              \_ I thought it was more about no preemptive wars when
                 inspections were keeping Saddam boxed in, and if he kicks
                 them out, then the U.S. could pass a resolution for force.
                 \_ If you thought that, you're a moron.  Inspections did
                    little until Bush raised the gun to Saddam's head.
                 \_ And I bet you still believe in Santa Claus too.
                    \_ I don't see what's wrong with saying "inspections were
                       keeping Saddam boxed in", "no preemptive wars", and
                       "if he kicks them out ... pass a resolution for force".

                 \_ I work with several French scientists, all educated
                    at french schools through the phd level, and they
                    have always, even in france, written all their papers
                    and even their phd theses in english.  scientists
                    are perhaps more willing than most to adopt international
                    standards, but *all* european scientists with any
                    ineternational influence speak english.
                    \_ 1) "Several French scientists" is representative of,
                       well, several French scientists.  2) That they can
                       speak English does not necessarily imply that they
                       are willing to accept English as the de jure European
                       common language.
