7/16    Is it just me or it seems like all the Benihana chefs are
        non-Japanese? The last 3 I went to in the past 2 years were
        all Mexican chefs. What's up?
        \_ The Japanese all have white collar jobs.
                \_ Being a cook/chef doesn't count as a blue collar job.
        \_ Uh, what do you expect?  It's not like Benihana is considered
           a real Japanese restaurant anyway...
           \_ I went to the one in Monterey a few years ago b/c I had a gift
              cert.  I'm a sushi snob, and the sushi was actually surprisingly
              good.  (and reasonably, if not low- priced)
        \_ I went to the one in Burlingame a month ago.  All chefs there were
           Hispanics.  But then the restaurant first started in Tokyo by a
           \_ ...whose daughter appeared in 2 Fast 2 Furious:

7/16    I am in the process of switch to UTF-8 as default encoding
        environment for various reason.  But I just discover that most of
        there are a great number of UNIX utilities that doesn't support
        text file that is encoded in UTF-8 (e.g. less, more).  Has anyone
        here seriously tried to migrate to UTF-8?  what kind of problem
        have you encountered?  thanks           kngharv
        \_ you sure it's not just your term or ssh client?
           \_ that was what I thought at first too.  What I did was
              viewing a utf-8 encoded document in couple ways: 1. use less
              2. use more, and 3. use cat
              when I cat the file, everything renders correctly.  That is
              about the only time the file renders correctly.  I suspect
              I did something wrong ehre, because not even emacs seems to
              be render utf-8 encoded text.  In all failed cases, something
              like 25% of the Chinese text is being display correctly. The
              sheer fact that 1. cat display all characters, and 2. when
              failed, some text actually displayed puzzles me.
              \_ That sounds like your locale is set wrong.  Try running
                 "setenv LC_CTYPE en_US.UTF-8".  --mconst
        \_ Did you try setenv LESSCHARSET utf-8 ?

7/16    Photo of Plame and Wilson I found on (work safe)
        \_ The point is?
           \_ you can find flattering pics on
           \_ Plame >> Coulter
              \_ Plame is a fat faced blonde.  Coulter is a skinny faced
                 blonde.  Neither is particularly attractive or unattractive.
