8/15    A short essay on labels in America:
        \_ It's really funny that someone would erase a link to an essay
           advocating moderation.  You guys crack me up!  Restored (twice).

8/15    Are there significant C compilers out there that really don't support
        C++ style "//" comments?
        \_ No. So whomemever is requiring the use of /* */ only in whatever code
        \_ No. So whoever is requiring the use of /* */ only in whatever code
           can be safely ignored. The only time you'd limit this is if you are
           stuck on a stove-pipe system.
           \_ C99 added '//' comments.  The only compilers I know of that might
              have trouble are legacy/embedded compilers.

2003/8/16-17 [Science/Space] UID:29372 Activity:low
8/16    Has anyone here ever heard of 'streetlight filters' for telescope
        oculars?  A colleague of mine claims that most streetlights are
        sodium-based, and that it's thus possible to filter out the light
        pollution from lamps in the spectrum of street lighting... -John
        \_ Narrowband. See
2003/8/16 [Computer/SW/Editors/Vi] UID:29373 Activity:nil
8/16    I don't have particularly strong opinion about editors and I don't
        plan to be an expert of any one, but there seem to be many of that
        on the motd.  So here is a question for you: why nobody mention
        or flame about nedit?  I use it when I am using unix and X.  It seems to
        do most of what I wanted though by no mean not all, but since I don't
        know how to make vi or emacs to do all that I wanted either, it seems
        fine.  Do anybody else use nedit?

8/16    Idi Amin, R.I.P.  We'll miss you, buddy!  --U.S. State Department

           god save idi amin,
           and god save ronald bigs!
