11/4    I bought a few books from Amazon external affiliates. Some of them
        sold New books and some of them sold Like New books. I'd like to
        find out which ones are which, but the UI Amazon presents no
        longer tells you after you made the purchase. How do I find out?

11/4    I'm putting 1.5GB of RAM in a computer that takes PC2100. Is there
        any reason that a mix of PC3200 and PC2700 RAM should not work?
        \- kids today are lazy and stupid. STFW, the answer is obvious.
           \_ Yes, the answers I found seems to say that it should work fine,
              but with this RAM config, the computer now experiences kernel
              oops, so I'm trying to figure out where to start with debugging.
              \_ Have you tried loading your computer with this many sticks
                 of memory before?  I'd be more suspicious signal integrity
                 or load problems first.  That or even if your motherboard
                 is designed to support that memory configuration (assuming
                 yours is an older design).
        \_ I have never had success mixing ram. Now a days I always order
           from the same vendor and if possible the same part number. If
           I can't I replace all the ram so it all matches. Linux/FreeBSD
           seem to be far more sensitive to this than windows.

11/5    Why doesn't the French government send in their military? It seems
        like they're doing a lot of talking but nothing else.
        \_ That *is* the French military!
        \_ They're afraid the military might try to surrender to the rioters.
           \- Aux armes citoyens
              Formez vos bataillons
              Marchons, marchons
              Qu'un sang impur
              Abreuve nos sillons
              \_ All bark and no bite.  I do remember being vastly amused
                 when we got Cabanne to sing the Marseillaise.  When's the
                 last time France was victorious in war?
                 \- Your search - french military victories - did not match
                    any documents. Did you mean french military defeats
                    \- according to an e'ist article, in a recent survey
                       of french people CdG is considered the GREATEST
                       FRENCHMAN EVER. I guess L9, L14, H4, F1, and the
                       brainiacs may have split the vote. maybe C0 wasnt
                       in the running on technical grounds. but surprised
                       CdG > N1.
                       \_ CdG benefits from memories and lack of historical
                          perspective. Cf. Churchhill someone outscoring
                          Nelson in the British version.
        \_ They are a bunch of incompetent pussies. They should have had a
           curfew within a couple days and started arresting people en
           masse and shooting resisters/rock throwers. Oh boo hoo my
           poor immigrant family is still poor and the ones living here
           for generations aren't poor! Let's burn some cars.
           \_ The rioters are incompetent too.  11 days and only 1 death.
              Rodney King riots had 50 dead after only 3 days.
              \_ That's true. But still I can't believe French police allow
                 themselves to be attacked without returning some serious
                 retribution. I guess they're terrified of escalating the

        Bad news for the left is good news for America. And, once again,
        Bush makes lemonade out of liberal sour grapes.
        \_ 36% approval rating is lemonade?

11/4    Washington Post is caught campaiging for Maryland
        Democrats and perpetrating fraud.  This is the
        Dan Rather episode all over again.
