11/19   Looks like suprnova is down. I guess they've been hit by the corp.
        \_ looks fine.  try www.suprnovra, not suprnova
           \_ Nope. is the real one; and net are
              look-alike ripoffs
              \_ Yes, and works for me.
                 \_ Down for me.
        \_ Try're OK.  -John

11/19   What is the political slant of the following people?
   1. William H Gates III
   2. Warren E Buffett
   3. Karl & Theo Albrecht
   4. Paul G Allen
   5. Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Alsaud
   6. Lawrence J Ellison
   7. Alice L Walton
   8. Helen R Walton
   9. Jim C Walton
  10. John T Walton
  11. Theodore Leanord
  12. Robert Wainright
  13. Agnes P Johanson
  14. John C. Dvorak
  15. Miles F. Chancery
  16. Henry Mulborough
        \_ walton, walmart, hick states, very very red. Buffet, Bush's buddy,
           should also be very red. I'm guessing that Gates is very blue
           because he's in Washington, but that's kind of far fetched.
           \_ Buffet's a liberal.  Gates is an Ayn Rand fan, apparently.
           \_ Buffett's a liberal.  Gates is an Ayn Rand fan, apparently.
                -- ilyas
              \_ Buffett is a Democrat, but he's hardly a liberal.  -tom
                 \_ I ve heard enough from Buffett to know he is only not
                    a 'real liberal' to a Berkeley kook like you. -- ilyas
                 \_ Probably the best description of Buffett is
                    "Fiscal Conservative Democrat".
              \_ Ayn Rand, objectivism, self reliant, etc etc etc.
                 \_ Objectivists range from (moderate) conservative to
                    libertarian.  They don't like government very much.
                      -- ilyas
        \_ Larry Ellison. The bastard is the most conceited, selfish
           dickhead who cares about nothing except beating Gates.
           You know I've never seen him at work the 5 years I was at
           Oracle, a company that makes *1* great [overpriced] product
           and 99 other shitty products, like apps, tools, ERP, CRM.
           Anyways, Ellison reminds me of Bush with his "fuck everyone
           else" attitude, so if I had to make a guess, I'd say he's
           a Republican. In fact I'd say most of the people on the
           list are probably Republicans.

11/20   I. HATE. UCLA. JOCKS. They party late at night and wake up
        early in the morning and they drink beer and party and
        they yell a lot with their jock voice, like gorillas trying
        to assert their gorilla-ness in the society. Oh well at least
        the girls are dumb and slutty.

11/19   what is "to get filled up"?  something i saw on craigslist.

11/19   Sometimes I am thinking that three years from now we'll STILL
        be reading about Oracle's repeated PeopleSoft takekeover attempts.
        \_ isn't it wonderful how ellison has vowed to fire every
           peoplesoft employee.
           \_ Really?  That seems like a stupid way to take over a
                \_ isn't increasing shareholder value wonderful.
                   \_ It is when you're a shareholder.
           \_ Besides, this takeover is also extremely unpopular among
              peoplesoft customers (at least those who run it on non-Oracle DB)
              I think it is clear to every idiot that Oracle's intention is
              to eliminate peoplesoft as a competitor and then make peoplesoft
              users to switch to using Oracle's DB.
              \_ Didn't that Tim Curry impersonator jackass say as much?
              \_ as a PeopleSoft customer, I think destroying the company
                 sounds like a great idea.
