10/25   NPR In A Coma
        http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1008119/posts
        \_ that wasn't very interesting, and i can barely
           care less about old vegetative people wanting to die,
           i'm sure you can find a more entertaining hate filled
           free republic message topic.  do you really not have
           anything better to do than report uncreative free
           republic webpage titles?  i think you need a girlfriend.
           seriously.
        \_ I concur with the above. I am the worse for having read that. I
           hoped for some vitriolic anti-liberal ranting, but got boredom.

10/25   Don't forget about your clocks!

10/25   The amazing web site reverser!
        Use any http://url.mirror.sytes.org, for instance:
        <DEAD>www.cnn.com.mirror.sytes.org<DEAD>
        Search the web for satanic messages!
        \_ Wow!  Amazing!  They ran web pages through perl's string reverse
           function! Wowowowow!
           \_ Actually, it's a little more interesting than that. The layout
              of the page also undergoes a vertical flip, though with varying
              degrees of success. It would be cooler if they flipped the
              images too.
              \_ They do flip the images.
                 \_ Not on cnn, at least.

10/25   I'm looking for an ATX motherboard that supports the VIA C3 CPU.
        Has anybody heard of using this one with linux?  VIA C3M266
        http://www.viavpsd.com/product/C3M266_spec.jsp?motherboardId=101
        \_ Do yourself a favor and buy a less than cutting edge intel chip.
           Here's a start: http://www.pricewatch.com
           \_ can any of those run with no fan?
              \_ probably not but you can get fans quiet enough that ambient
                 room noise will be louder.

10/25   Iraqi bloggers.  These are great, regardless of your opinion on
        weblogs or the war in Iraq and the occupation.  Different perspectives
        from different people that are a great substitute for so called
        "objective" reporting.
        Healing Iraq: http://healingiraq.blogspot.com
        This guy is very much in support of the war and the new administration.
        He has a lot of great stuff, particularly on the new right-wing Shiite
        movements.
        Baghdad Burning: http://riverbendblog.blogspot.com
        This woman is not a supporter of the Americans, although she's no
        hardcore Islamist.  Good stuff on where all that reconstruction money
        is really going.
        Where is Raed: http://dear_raed.blogspot.com
        This the original Baghdad Blogger that everyone knows.  He's still very
        coy about his actual position and seems very torn...so I guess you
        could put him somewhere in the middle.
        Supposedly there are two more, but I haven't been able to find them.
        Anyone?  There will probably be even more in the future as the access
        and electricity situation changes.
        (note to motd cranks right and left: this post is balanced and
        there is no reason to censor it, unless you're a pud.)
        \_ Wait... how can iraqi bloggers be great if your opinion of weblogs
           is that they suck...
           \_ I was really hoping there wouldn't be a pile-on with this post,
              but... I would say that your opinion is perfectly valid, but so
              are the bloggers' opinions.  None of them claim to be news
              reporters - they are simply people saying what they think.
              This is not a perspective you can find elsewhere at the moment,
              at least about Iraq.
        \_ Right wing?  You mean Shiite branded Islamic movement?

        \_ too bad there are so many fucking puds around here.
        \_ it'll get censored for simply not being about linux and riding bike.
           anyway, just keep in mind when reading this stuff that no matter
           what opinion is expressed, it is from someone in the upper classes
           of iraqi society.  the typical cab driver not only doesn't have
           net access, but probably doesnt own his cab either.
           \_ Agreed 100%, though I would argue that this is mostly true of
              bloggers in the West as well.

10/25   Is there a nitrous leak in the bay area or what? what's with the motd?

10/25   Anybody have any good or bad things to say about http://godaddy.com?
        \_ I've had no probs with them.
        \_ Neither do I; I've bought two domain names from them and
           have them do the webhosting for one of them, and both accounts
           are problem-free. They have great technical support too (true
           24x7).
        \_ after using dotster and gandhi, i gotta say like godaddy the best.

        So if Jews control the world, why didn't I get the memo?  I want to
        know where to signup for my piece.  I'd like something with a beach
        and friendly natives to keep the drinks flowing and the food fresh.
        Thanks!  --Salary slave Jew who stood in the wrong line
        \_ you lose.  you are not really one of the 12 tribes.
           \_ I don't think you understand how it works.  EVERYONE who was
              born of a jewish mother is a descendant of the 12 tribes.  Now
              most people don't KNOW what tribe they belong to... but that's
              a different story. -- Jew
              \_ does that count for mothers who converted too?
                 \_ no because she's definitely not one of the 12 tribes.  if
                    she can prove a connection to starbuck, apollo, or lorne
                    greene then she can appeal to the elders of zion.
                    \_ So Sammy Davis Jr isn't a chosen one?
           \_ Hey I'm totally from one of the 12 tribes.  None of this lost
              battlestar galactica 13th tribe funny business for me!  I just
              want my piece of the world!  Is one small beach and some friendly
              natives so much to ask when the rest of my people are running
              the whole world?  --op
              \_ Sorry, we don't have your piece of the world.  You are
                 asking the wrong people.
                 asking the wrong people.  And thanks for your insulting
                 patronization of us natives.
        \_ I think Mahathir is still pissed that George Soros screwed his
           country during the Asian financial crisis.
           \_ if your country got fucked half as hard, you would of
              tossing nuclear warheads instead of just bitching about
              Jews

10/25   The Motd Movie Critic reviews "Kill Bill, Volume 1":  See this movie
        immediately.  --MMC
        \_ I dunno it left me cold. Some of it was good but the humor
           mostly fell flat. Lots of uncomfortable moments.

10/25   With DDR-SDRAM, what's the benefits/drawbacks of registered vs.
        un-registered?
        \_ price vs reliability
           \_ is registered fully supported?
              \_ what do you mean by fully supported?
                 \_ If my motherboard uses DDR will registered "just work"?

           party candidate emerging from the 9 dwarves for 2004, got bill &
           \_ wow, what news do you read? you're in a dreamworld if you
              think dean/clark/kerry aren't "electable". read anything
              but hard right opinion lately?
              \_ I'll wager $1000 that none of them get elected as
              President in 2004. Are you up to it? -williamc
              \_ What kind of odds will you give me? http://tradesports.com will
                 give me 60/40, can you match it? -ausman
           hillary lurking about screwing up the party for their own gain,
           and just lost the governorship of the largest state to an actor
           in an election where the majority party split their votes among
           two candidates but still won.  If that's what it's like to be a
           loser I can't imagine how much better winning feels.  Link unread
           because it's not worth the cut n paste effort to read a context
           free url.  At least tell us what's there, otherwise you just look
           like a partisan whiney little bitch.
                  \_ Uhm.  Pot, Kettle, Black.
                     \_ I think the emphasis was on WHINEY LITTLE BITCH,
                        not partisan.
                        \_ I think the emphasis was on the whole phrase.  Nice
                           try.
                        \_ right, and I'm sure that from 1992 to 2000 the
                           above partisan was totally respectful to the
                           President and never whined once.  People like that
                           on both sides are useless.
                           \_ Heh.  Clinton doesn't deserve respect.  The man
                              is slime.
                              \_ Clinton didn't sell a war on false pretexts or

                                       \_ I repeat, how do you know?  How do
                                          the reporters know?
