8/6     Duh.  Just as I thought.  France and the U.S. slog out a UN resolution
        they both can agree to, but oops, someone forgot to ask Lebanon!
        \_ So what.  Since when do we ever ask anyone's permission before
           doing anything?  -proud American

8/5 Soda sshd gets stopped for some reason -- who fixes it at a late
        hour? M for michener! (everything is fine. carry on. :D)
        \_ Actually, it was me.  -proud American

8/5     Silly dpkg question. When I do "dpkg -l" and pipe it to less or
        grep, it cuts off at 80 columns and I'm unable to see the complete
        package name. How do I see the entire column name? Secondly, some
        packages are tagged as "rc" instead of "ii", how do I remove the
        "rc" packages from the dpkg list? Thanks.
        \ Hit the escape key, dufus. -computer genius
        \_ Hit Control+Alt+Delete.  Try it a couple times.  -proud American

8/5     I just want to take this fine opportunity and say, FUCK sendmail.
        It is difficult to configure and its debugging facility totally
        blows. I can't believe how braindead sendmail config is, not to
        mention its sucky security. Fuck sendmail, use postfix instead.
        I got postfix running in a jiffy and I didn't even have to go
        through 800 pages of sendmail manpage. Fuck sendmail and
        its braindead author. Praise thy new MTA master, postfix.
        \_ You are way out of line, buddy.  <DEAD><DEAD>
        \_ oh yes, please fuck me! i need you inside me -sendmail

8/5     In pine, how do you select all the messages in a folder and then
        add it to another folder?
        \_ Section 11 of the following URL:
        \_ ; (select)
           A (all)
           A (apply...)
           S (save)
        \_ Try Q.  -proud American
           \_ BTW If you get the error message "Command ';' not defined for
              this screen," you will need to enable the Select feature. To
              enable the "Select" feature in Pine, type "M" for Main Menu,
              then "S" for Setup, and "C" for Config. Type "W" for WhereIs,
              and enter "aggregate" as the word to find. This will bring you
              to the option named "enable-aggregate-command-set." Type "X" to
              Set this option, then "E" to Exit Setup. Type "Y" to commit
              the changes. This will bring you back to the Main Menu. Type
              "I" to access your inbox's Message Index, and then ";".
           As the previous poster said, type ";" for Criteria. You will be
           prompted to choose from the Select criteria listed at the bottom of
           the window. For instance, to select all messages from jharvard,
           type ";" for Select, "T" for Text, "F" for From, and then
           "jharvard". The messages that have bee n selected will have an
           "X" next to them.
                \_ That didn't work for me.  -newbie

8/6     Anybody know the national/ethnic origin of the name "Rajskub"? (i.e.
        the actress playing Chloe on 24)
        \_ Czech.
           \_ oh. thx

8/6     Blatantly doctored photo of Beirut on yahoo news:
        \_ 404
        \_ Hmm, they took it down.  It was a Reuters photo, there are
           small cropped versions here.
           \_ Here's a link to the first draft:
        \_ A detailed column about it:
        \_ After this, Reuters is no longer accepting work from that
           photographer.  It's stupid, because the altered image actually
           doesn't add anything besides looking fake:
        \_ Reuters is no longer accepting work from that photographer.
           It's stupid, because the altered image actually doesn't add
           anything besides looking fake:
        \_ That is a totally bogus assertion.  How dare you accuse someone
           of doctoring, altering, or spinning something to further a
           political agenda?!?  -Michael Moore & Ann Coulter
           \_ Of course there's no difference between two paid political
              hacks making big bucks being annoying and a news service used
              around the world that is supposed to have "journalistic
              integrity", but I wouldn't expect a motd troll to "get" this.
              \_ Oh, like when Michael Moore suggested that the best way to
                 deal with a conservative is with a baseball bat, or when
                 Michael Moore endoresed the assasination of public figures
                 he dissagreed with?  Oh, wait, that never happened.   I hate
                 Michael Moore, but you, sir, are a fucking idiot.
                 \_ What does MM have to do with Reuters spreading Hezbollah
                    propaganda verbatim?  Nothing.  I was going to ask wth
                    you're talking about but it really doesn't matter.  Carry
                    on with your nuttitude.
                    \_ What is your definition of "spreading"?  When is a full
                       retraction and apology enough?
                       \_ The same definition as everyone else uses.  A full
                          retraction and apology is quaint and some what cute.
                          How about they stop serving up Hezbollah propaganda
                          as unvarnished truth and actually, ya know, maybe
                          investigate something and stop showing severe bias?
                          Then they'd have nothing to apologise for.  Trust
                          is earned, not granted and they've blown it big
                          time on more than one occasion.
