4/27    Why can't I do "cowsay | cowsay | cowsay"? Is it broken?
        \_ You can, but it looks ugly.
           \_ not if you use -n
< cow is being abused >

4/27    This is a pretty hilarious (apparently genuine) rant by a
        sociology prof.  Spot the hypocrisy!
        \_ Haha, I love that guy.
           \_ He took down the blog.  Anyone have a mirror?
              Nevermind, Google cache FTW:
              \_ he has many grammar errors.  -tom
                 \_ so?  it's a blog.
                 \_ He didn't have "many"... I saw a couple typos and yeah,
                    it's a blog.
                    \_ He had many.  The worst was "low and behold."  And
                       if you're on a grammar rant, you'd better be accurate
                       yourself.  -tom
                       \_ Well I think that may also be a typo or at any rate
                          not strictly grammar. The guy is still a jackass
                          \_ Tom's "he has many grammar errors" was satire.
                             That said, grammar is "right use and rules of
                             language".  Mistaken phraseology can definitely
                             fall under "bad grammar".
                          \_ I don't think it can be considered a typo if it
                             was intentional.
                             \_ If you are typing quickly it's possible to make
                                mistakes like that even if you are aware it
                                is wrong. (since it sounds the same.) That said
                                maybe it was intentional. I still wouldn't call
                                that grammar. It's kind of like the toe/tow the
                                line thing where people don't really know
                                what it means. I guess a diction issue.
                                \_ Toe/tow the line isn't a typo.  I think
                                   it's closer to 'ignorance' or simply
                                   'wrong'.  If your point is that we can't
                                   be sure based on limited data -- then, sure.
                                   But folding ignorance and spelling
                                   errors under the general heading 'typo' in
                                   *this* context invites this sort of
                                   pointless semantic 'dialogue'.
                                \_ He upbraids his students for confusing
                                   "than" and "then," which is a very similar
                                   error.  -tom
                                   \_ He is not upbraiding them as he never
                                      voices that to them.  He mocks them to
                                      other people.  Tom, you have used the
                                      word incorrectly!  You should be more
                                      careful on the MotD!
                                      \_ You're officially an imbecile.

4/27    I just started using spamassassin recently. And procmail. Yeah I'm
        behind the times. Anyway, some spams are just random dictionary
        words. Is it even useful to try to sa_learn those?

4/27    Rootstaff decided that, things going decently well as they are, we
        are reinstating CGI in ~/public_html dirs... partly due to the
        increasing level of MOTD anger.
