3/3     Jesus, Freeper Guy, why not just put a link to free republic's main
        site and caption it, "DEAR GOD!  THE LIBRULS ARE RUINING THE COUNTRY,
        OH WOE!"  and save the space.
        \_ I think he's doing a fine job. Seeing those links day after day,
           I'm converted. Hey Freeper, what do we do about this shit? Should
           I buy a firearm and sign up somewhere? Lead us! -freeper #1 fan

3/3     Is there an alternative to AAA for roadside assistance coverage that
        doesn't lobby the state to build more freeways?  I want the towing,
        I don't like AAA's political agenda.  Thanks.
        \_ 21st Century includes towing with their insurance.  Others might.
           \_ I have towing with Amica but the service sucks hard compared to
              AAA. Waits typically three times as long and sulry second rate
              service from whoever eventually shows up. -- ulysses
        \_ I have never heard of this, do they want more highway
           maintenance, or more freeways?  Where can you build more freeways
           in california?  are you talking about private toll roads?
           \_ My aunt works for them, and she's mentioned some stuff like this.

              http://betterworldclub.com/newsroom/articles/Harpers_May2002.htm
              It's not terrible stuff they do, they're not Enron-- more like
              AARP, selling out but trying to maintain a good rep.
              \_ How does the roadside (car) asssistance plan compare to AAA
                 in terms of service quality?
        \_ The RAC but you have to wear a coat and tie to get into the
           clubhouse.  -John
        \_ Most car dealerships offer roadside assistance programs with their
           cars.  Also, many insurance companies offer it with their coverage.
           \_ 9 out of 10 times it's subcontracted through AAA
        \_ http://www.betterworldclub.com
           Endorsed by Car Talk.
        \_ I thought AAA is better than other insurance provider because it's
           non-profit.
           \_ Actually, I've heard from a couple of folks that AAA insurance
              sucked, especially given how expensive it is. Low quality service
              following an actual accident was the complaint in both cases.
              BTW, Amica being a "mutual insurance company" is also not-for-
              profit.
           \_ the part of AAA doing roadside assistance  is different than the
              insurance part.

        \_ Our friend the Freeper!  Posts stupid shit, so you don't have to!
                \_ Yea http://opinionjournal.com is a rag... you better stick
                   with the color bar graphs in USA Today.
                   \_ Dude, the wall street journal editorials are one step
                      up from the new york post.  One very small step.
                        \_ Either the event took place, as reported by
                           New Republic, or it didn't, dude.
                           \_ Yeah remember when they repeated the Kerry
                              intern rumors? Sorry their credibility is
                              quickly going down the toilet.
                              \_ Kerry fucked some 23 year old.  So what?
        \_ Posting a FreePer link is lame, but editing that link so's it
           goes nowhere is even lamer.
                \_ fixed
        \_ Thanks for reminding me what a partisan hack GOP outfit the
           WSJ has turned into. I just cancelled my subscription. -ausman

           \_ The humanity!! Well I you should cancel your subscription
              to the New Republic while you are it because they reported
              it first.

3/3     If a public library blocks outgoing internet traffic on all ports
        except 80 and 443, originating from patron's laptops located on
        the library's network, are they violating the free speech rights?
        Seems wrong that I can download tons of porn w/o restrinction, but
        I can not SSH to soda. Do you know of any cases about this? Seems
        just as constitutionallly problematic as web content filtering.
        \_ It's not unconstitutional for them to use a filter, it's
           unconstitutional for Congress to require them to use one.  It's
           unconstitutional to filter traffic on an internet connection you
           own, but as the library is giving you a service, they can place
           whatever limits they want on it.
           \_ As a taxpayer, don't I have more of a right to open internet
              service through a public library than through a commercial
              ISP that I clearly do not own.
              \_ Your rights to an internet connection through an ISP are
                 regulated by your contract and AUP.  The government can't
                 censor that speach.  You have no 'right' to use a library
                 internet connection.  You have a right to non-discriminantory
                 access to taxpayer resources, but the extent of resources
                 provided to taxpayers is not gauranteed to be unlimited.
                 There have been no laws passed saying all taxpayers in your
                 jurisdiction have rights to internet access.  In the case of
                 such a system, like what's being built in Utah, users would
                 have constitutional protection of how they use the connection.
        \_ csua runs a port 80 redirector to soda:22 for people stuck behind
           such idiotic "security" setups. So quit yer whining and just
           ssh to scotch.csua port 80
           \_ Thanks for your attitude and your help.
              \_ He gave you what you needed to know without bashing your
                 whiney ass too much.  Free speech?  To port 22?  Sheesh.
                 \_ "porn" = "free speech"  seems no more absurd.
                 \_ I don't think op was being sarcastic.  He needed the
                    attitude he got, and he was grateful for it. [formatd]
              \_ advice with attitude. I like it.
        \_ first, how is the library violating /your/ free speech rights by
           restricting the material you can retrieve?  free speech, not free
           access.  second, would you also argue that the library not carrying
           a book you're looking for is also a violation of your rights?
           \_ "not carrying a book" = "not having net access".  If they have
              a book and refuse to let me see it, that seems like a better
              analogy. I see no valid reason to block port 22. justify it.
              \_ It's not a free speech issue.  If you want a justification,
                 you should be asking the library, not the motd.
                 \_ Yeah, good point. I've already done that, and while
                    I'm waiting to hear back from them, I thought I'd
                    get some additional info from the smart folks on soda.
                    Thanks for your opinions and ideas.  -complete idiot
              \_ Are you really this stupid?  -tom
                 \_ justify it
                    \_ I don't have to justify it, and neither does the
                       library.  You don't have a right to port 22 access;
                       you're being completely obtuse.
                       And anyway, it's easy to justify--keeping kids from
                       getting the library into trouble.  -tom
                         \_ maybe they should just unplug their net.
                            \_ maybe you're a complete idiot.  -tom
                                \_ yeah, maybe.

3/3     Apparently if you put the word "school" in it, people will vote for any
        bond measure.  I hope I never hear Democrats whining about fiscal
        responsibility.  I certainly won't care about that whining any more.
        Thanks for voting yes on 55, $12B for the schools with $12B in
        interest.
        \_ dude, school funding is traditionally funded by bonds.  It is the
           way it has always worked.  The other 15B in bonds are the ones you
           should be grumpy about.
           \_ Oh I'm grumpy about both of them.  How long has this been
              tradition?  10 years?  Since the lottery?  My point was that in a
              year where we need to cut spending, a huge bond was passed.  The
              $15B bond at least has the facade of buying more time to balance
              the budget.
              \_ Go ahead and be grumpy. You got yer contra costa county
                 walmart didn't you?
                 \_ I don't live in CC so I couldn't vote against it, thanks.
                 didn't you?
           \_ Incorrect. Traditionally school funding came from property and
              income taxes. Large improvements (not maintenance) were funded
              by bonds. However, it takes an ubermajority to raise taxes, so
              the cheat is creating a bond and paying it via fees.
        \_ There's nothing inherently irresponsible about bond financing;
           as with a mortgage, you get the cash up front in exchange for
           paying more over time, the idea being that you can get greater
           value out of having the cash now.  As long as state revenues
           continue to rise, there shouldn't be anything wrong with bond
           issues (within reason).  -tom
           \_ This is the first time a bond has been issued to pay for past
              daily expenses and not a special specific project.  This is a
              nightmare precident.
              \_ Precedent. Also alarming is the size of the bond issue.
                 It's one of the largest ever issued anywhere. How
                 liberals can whine about $15 billion in bonds for money
                 we've already spent and yet vote to put $15 billion more
              \_ You are confusing the two different bonds. Start another
                 thread if you want to talk about the Gropinator's
                 bailout bond.
                 \_ Oh yeah, sorry.  Ok, back to school bonds: more waste tax
                    pay dollars down the drain into the educational beaurocracy
                    never to be seen again.  After the educational system is
                    completely reformed we can talk about putting more money in
                    it if necessary.
           issues (within reason).  -tom
           \_ how about issuing bonds in one hand, and got rid of license
              tax on the other hand?
              \_ This sort of ridiculousness is no more than you can expect in
                 a system that basically mandates fiscal governance by ballot
                 since the legislature has its hands tied by the supermajority.
                 But hey! Smile! the legislature can never increase taxes on
                 you and you can still blame them for CA's budget problems when
                 you're done blaming the governor.
              \_ It's hard to justify giving a $4 billion handout to the
                 well-off in difficult budget times.  -tom
           \_ It's irresponsible to take on a new mortgage when you are already
              drowning in debt.  Refinancing at least makes some sense.
        \_ I agree that the bond was stupid. This is for local districts
           to address. In fact, many of them had Measures on my local
           ballot. The money is better spent when it is is raised and
           spent locally.
        \_ Does anyone else just vote against all propositions on general
           principles?  Its a terrible way to make laws.
              nightmare precident.
                 on the credit card is beyond me.

        even if I have a file size of 1, how big is it really taking? Thanks.

           \- bsd has statfs() which returns f_bsize long in the statfs struct.

3/3     Dear Intel: Prescott is a Dog.  AMD64 kicks your ass.  Thank you for
        playing anyway!
        \_ Okay, we all know that Prescott runs 90 watts plus, but can
           you provide a URL comparing performance of an AMD CPU vs. a
           Prescott, in the $150-$250 price range of CPUs?
           \_ Come on, try harder.  Prescott isn't in that price range.
              The 3.2ghz is $278, the 3.4ghz is $417.  It might do alright
              in benchmarks thanks to its cache improvements, but my
              2.4ghz Northwood feels "snappier," and the AMD64 eats it for
              breakfast.
              \_ You need to start giving people a little more credit.
                 Prescott is in this price range.  http://csua.org/u/69f
                 I just had to build a system last week for someone (it
                 was not a Prescott, but I looked at it), and the CPU I chose
                 was $183.  I also see the Athlon 64 3000+ for $211.  Are
                 there any diffs between the 3000+ and 3200+/3400+ other
                 than clock frequency?  (Oh, I do see the increase in L2
                 cache from 512 KB to 1 MB; that must be why the 3200+ is
                 $270.)
                 \_ 3000 -> 3200 = +cache.  3200->3400 = 3000+cache+clock.
                    \_ thx.

                 useless site http://www.up-d8.com
                 \_ oops, spelling fixed
        \_ Does someone have power dissipation / thermal design power data
           for any of the AMD 64 CPUs?
           \_ Answering my own question:  http://csua.org/u/69h
              FYI, the system I built last week was a Pentium 4 2.8C (800 Mhz
              system bus, HT) with an Envision 360W power supply and an ATI
              Radeon 9600 SE with an Asus P4P800 mobo.  SATA 160 GB Hitachi
              drive.  It uses 75-80 watts idle, and 135-140 watts playing a
              3D game.

3/3     When calculating the net worth of a person far from retirement, why is
        the balance in his/her 401k account included?  That money hasn't been
        taxed and can't be withdrawn without a penalty.  Thx.
        \_ Because it is part of your net worth? If you have $30 million
           in your IRA but no other assets should your net worth be $0?
        \_ With penalty and taxes, there's still a net worth.  It's not like
           penalty and taxes would negate everything you have.
           \_ No, just most of it.
        \_ penalty shouldn't be deducted, taxes should, in my opinion.
           \_ Why? If you own $4 million in stock or in property or cars
              or any other asset it is still $4 million worth. You might
              pay tax when you sell and you might pay transaction fees, too.
              That has nothing to do with the worth of those assets.
              \_ I should say the part that's the deferred income tax.
                 \_ How do you know what they may be? It could be zero if,
                    say, capital losses offset it when you withdraw. It
                    could be much more than now if your income goes up a
                    lot. Net worth is net worth and figuring out the best
                    way to get income out of that is a different problem.
                    \_ It's an ever-changing number, genius.  If your stock
                       has a certain value on the market today, that's the
                       value today and part of your networth today.  If
                       tomorrow your stock tanks and goes to zero, then you
                       recalculate your net worth.  Please tell me you're not
                       a Cal student or alum.
                       \_ Please tell me where what you said contradicts
                          what I said. Obviously, net worth is calculated
                          at a given point in time, genius.
                          \_ I didn't.  Someone has been maliciously editing
                             and moving stuff.
                    \_ how exactly do they calculate capital gains and
                       income tax when one starts withdrawing at retirement?
                       can one withdraw everything at one go?

              2002 by actually increasing the number of Republicans in
              the legislature during an interim election year, and who
              would've thought that the recall would work and Arnie would
