01/12   If profiling is shown to be very effective in finding terrorists,
        will you still oppose it?
        \_ profiling, approaching and interrogating is fine, but
           encampment or imprisonment is not
           \_ How do you propose there be an interrogation without some form
              of confinement?  Ask them to show up each day at 9am?
             \_ ie: asking questions. if they don't show up to the
                interview , they are suspects.
           \_ at least they get free health care

1/12    I need to replace the front windshield of my car.  Are there any
        features that'll make the glass more expensive, or should I just
        shop around for the cheapest?
        \_ You have car insurance?  That's what it is there for.
        \_ Check with your insurance co. first. Acts of God are covered
           under comprehensive and your insurance company will provide you
           with a recommended list.
           \_ However, it may cost less than your deductible..

1/11    I want to make my linux box send faxes.  What's the cheapest
        class 1 or class 2 faxmodem that i can get my hands on quickly?
        (i live in oakland)
        \_ buy a 28.8 off ebay or craigslist.
        \_ You can often find a modem for free-after-rebate at CompUSA,
           Office Depot and the like.
           \_ Those are always Winmodems. Is there a Linux driver for them yet?
        \_ can you get one of those old-fashioned external modems from
           CompUSA? Or one of those lexmark/HP all-in-one fax/printer/scanners?
        \_ Ask a friend.  Someone always has some old crappy modem sitting in
           a closet his SO would be happy to see gone.  One less piece of junk.
        \_ Try "The Used Computer Store" in Berkeley.  Their prices suck, but
           it'll probably be better than new, and they have decent selection of
           old stuff.
           \_ UCS: evil.

1/11    A New Year and time to finally clean up my place.
        Am looking for suggestions for one of those storage places
        North Oakland area. Rent a space for $20-40/month???
        Any tips/suggestions? Price? what to look for?
        24-hour access? Also looking for suggestions on plastic boxes to
        store stuff in (books, clothes, junk). I am thinking of using
        something semi-waterproof in case the storage room gets wet.
        At least something better than old empty xerox-paper cardboard boxes
        \_ If you're going to the trouble of cleaning up, why would you keep
           the stuff and even worse pay to store it?  What are the odds you'll
           *ever* look at any of it ever again?
