6/21    I was looking for xlock or at least a version of software that
        will run something like the galaxy mode of the xlock/xscreensaver
        on a windows 2k machine.  I've googled and checked both cygwin and, but I haven't been able to turn up anything terribly useful.
        Does anyone know if/where I can this?  TIA.
        \_ install vmware, linux and exceed.
           \_ insanity.  just recompile the xlock for cygwin.  and the last I
              checked, vmware wasn't freeware so you can't "just install it".
        \_ You don't want xlock.  It was written by a convicted child molestor
           and former VP of Disney.
           \_ how about xlockmore ?
           \_ He's not a convicted child molestor.  Even if he was, so what?
              You're a child molestor and we don't mind you around here.

6/22    I want to build a touch sensative device or sculpture.  (Something
        simple first like a light goes on when you touch it.) Has anyone
        done anything like this?
        \_ nobody has ever done anything even remotely like this before
           \_ dood! i was at home depot and they had these badazz lamps
              that turn on when you touch them! i wuz like "daymm!"
              \_ dood! i had a lamp like dat! cept it turned on all by it's
                 bad self wheneva there was a breeze! ya dig??
        \_ Doorbell?
        \_ Look at one of those glass plasma storm balls you get at sharper
           image.  -John

6/22    I'd like to checkout a revision "one version previous" to the
        current revision. Does RCS have this feature native, or would I need
        to write a script to parse the rlog?
        \_ I think you need a script to get the most recent revision, then
           subtract 1.  Check out /csua/tmp/motdbrowse

6/22    Sandy Berger Defends Decision Not to Extradite Bin Laden
        Paraphrase of recent Clinton quote - 'I was obsessed with
        bin Laden and terrorism'
        \_ It's true.  Look at how hard Clinton fought against terrorism after
           the first bombing at the towers, after the Cole, after the two
           embassies got blown up, after Monica hit the news.  We killed an
           aspirin factory and a tent.  I know *I* felt safer after that.
           \_ *I* felt safer after Reagan sold weapons to Iran for profit!
              FREE MARKET BABY!!
              \_ Irony = Free Market Conservatives grousing about Hillary's
                 book being a bestseller.  "How can people buy that crap?"
