11/17   http://www.quantumpicture.com/Flo_Control/flo_control.htm
        The flo-control project. Science application at its best.
        \_ That guy has a nice view.
           \_ nice view of the cat?
              \_ of Puget sound (in the background).
                 \_ Oh I see. How rich do you have to be to live there?

11/17   Someone set up us the Blond^H^H^H^H^HBond!
        Casino Royale was a good movie; on par w/ Golden Eye. Maybe a bit too
        much Bourne Identity/Supremacy to make it into the Sean class, but
        easily as good as Pierce class and/or Roger class.
        Good Points: Eva Green - Great Vesper Lynd
                     \_ Agreed, she's classy AND hot. You rarely get that
                        combo these days.
                     DB5 - Worked in well, but they should have put Vesper in
                           the DB5, she deserves the most beautiful car evAr!
                     Judi Dench - Great as M, purists be damned.
                     \_ Aside from being a woman, I think she's very faithful
                        to Fleming's M from the books.
        Bad Points: '007' was not worked in a la Goldfinger.
                    B[l]ond has Force Speed, Force Jump, Force Heal level 99;
                    even Kyle Katarn and Luke Skywalker don't have B[l]ond's
                    Force powers. B[l]ond must have left his light saber in
                    his other suit.
                    \_ Crystal meth gives you wonder powers.
        MIA: Q/R, Moneypenny. Okay I can live w/o Q/R but no Moneypenny is
             just wrong. I love Ms. Moneypenny.
        Suggestions for Improvements: Next Bond Girl should be Jadzia or 7.

        \_ It's missing a Rolex. And a BMW Z sportser with weapons. And I
           think it's hilarious that after all that fighting he finally
           lands at this place, gets on the road and you see him go
           ZROOOOOOM across the screen and you see that he's just
           driving a... FORD FOCUS.
           \_ Re Rolex - I think the Omega Seamaster was better.
              Re BMW - No need to clutter the movie w/ cheap German crap,
                       stick to beautiful Astons.
              Re Focus - Agreed. leem

11/17   <DEAD>cusa.com<DEAD>?  Is the kchang's site?  I think http://cusa.org has a better
        interface, but this is nice.
        \_ It's ausman's site.
        \_ This one is more authentic.

11/16   You know what I think? Kids today don't care about motd. Or wall. Or
        nwrite. Or a csua email account. Or UNIX. You know what? They
        probably don't even know wall/motd/nwrite exist.
