        Anyone have pics of the actresses/artists mentioned in this article?
        \_ http://www.koreanwiz.org/at/actors27.html
           http://my.dreamwiz.com/wonbean/profile.html
           It was hard to find a pic of Lee Yu Jin until I bothered to
           spend 2 seconds on Google. Idiot.
        \_ Back in the days of WEB (basement of Evans, in case you forgot),
           my asian classmates all had desktop background of very nice asians
           girls, some naked but none like the sluts you see on porn site.
           Where can I/did they find these pictures?

8/14    What are some third parties people here have voted for besides the
        greens, libertarians, reform party and socialists?
        \_ Are you now or have you ever been a member of the communist party?
           \_ They no longer ask this in interviews.
        \_ Peace and Freedom.

8/14    How much do you pay each month for home net access, what speeds are
        you getting, what additional services, if any, are part of the package
        and how happy are you with the service?  I'm paying about $65/month
        for cable.  I get great speeds, it's been very reliable but I think
        it's a bit pricey.
        \_ forgot, something like $45 for cable with basic TV also. don't
           remember any downtime, speeds are more than I need but I haven't
           measured lately (at least 1.5 mbps). mountain view.
        \_ $40/mo with DSL.  Speed is about 1mbps.  That's good enough for
           me.  No downtime so far.
           \_ me to.
        \_ $109/mo with Speakeasy, 6.0mbps/768kbps, static IPs, very reliable.
        \_ $49/mo DSL through Cyberonic. My house is old, the cu is bad and
           my co is overloaded, so I'm limited to 640Kbps-768Kbps/786Kbps
           and suffer some downtime. The downside is that I have to use
           a router that has a 'static ip' but performs pppoe authentication.
           All in all I'm okay with Cyberonic, its much faster than my old
           DSL.
           Before Cyberonic I had 384/128 DSL via http://Sonic.net and paid $57/mo.
           Sonic provided excellent service and decent webmail, but I switched
           because I wanted faster service for a lower monthly cost. Sonic
           tried to convince PacHell to fix my line so I didn't have as much
           downtime, but PacHell refused which is another reason I switched.
           I hate PacHELL.
           \_ I swear those cocksuckers have a computerized blacklist of
              hated customers who get the special "screw you" treatment.
              Every time I moved when I lived in california it would take
              them about a month to "set up" my new phone line, yet somehow
              other people would get service in a couple of days.
              Fuck pacbell.  If I ever live in Ca again, I'm not even going
              to bother with a landline.
              \_ I thought pacbell was no more? -only owns cell phone
                 \_ They're now called SBC, but they still provide the same
                    PacBell service you know and love.

        US removing 70k troops from Europe, mostly Germany.  About fucking
        time, too.  I think we can all agree this is a good thing.

8/14    Any good experiences with automated MP3 tagger/renamer/organizer?
        I've got some stuff that has good file names, some with good ID3s info,
        and some with neither, so musicbrainz support might be nice.
        FreeBSD, Win2k, or OS X, hopefully less than $40?
        \_ Tag & Rename is great, though it's freeware only for 30 days
        \_ mp3tag is okay and free. http://www.mp3tag.de/en
        \_ mp3tag is okay and free. http://www.mp3tag.de/en
        \_ easytag seems okay, and it's free too
        \_ I liked ID3-Tagit

        \_ Oh can't you can taste the irony?  Too bad the original poster
           can't.
           \_ Sorry I'm not as smart as you, maybe you can explain
              yourself.

8/14    I'm looking for (a description of) the rules for 5-6 player expansion
        for settlers of catan.  brief desc. to URLs to the real mccoy,
        appreciated.
        \_ http://boardgamegeek.com/game/2807 might be a good place to start
        \_ bigger board (can check the dimensions for you if you like), and
           build phase after each person's turn.  Not much else, IIRC...
