4/15    Popular Mechanics tests Compact Fluorescent Lights Bulbs ( ( - PDF)
        \_ Interesting, but oddly doesn't rate the most potentially annoying
           things about CFL bulbs.  I use CFL bulbs throughout my house, a
           couple of different brands, and they vary in the following annoying
           1. Take longer to turn on than an incandesant bulb
           2. They approch fully brightness slowly.
           2. They approch full brightness slowly.
           3. One brand actually produces a soft hum.
           All these issues should have been rated.   -jrleek

4/15    If I rat out my old job to the IRS, will they give me a cut of
        the proceeds? - proposition joe

4/15    What do you guys think of the ACM and IEEE? Should I bother
        trying to advance my membership grade with them?
        \_ Seemed like a good idea at first, but I never used any
           of their services in the past 2 years. You can get all the PDFs
           from citeseer and from Googling, and unless you are conference
           crazy their discounts on conferences aren't really saving that
           much. It's a waste of time. It's not very useful for students
           but may be useful when you're a prof.
