5/28    I'm in Mendocino now. What is worth doing here? I don't drink
        wine BTW.
        \_ Skunk Train.  Lost Coast beach hike (20+ miles).
           Buy hydroponics.  -tom
           \_ I 2nd the Lost Coast hike.  do it now, don't do it
              in the winter!
        \_ Mendocino is a pretty big place. Are you near Jenner or Ukiah
           or Leggett? Orr Hot Springs is quite nice, especially if you
           like naked hippies. There is great beer in Hopland, at the
           Medocino Brewing Company. You can kayak in the bay near Jenner.
           Bodega Bay is really beautiful and there are lots of things
           to do there, including diving for abalone. Occidental is nice
           to do there, including diving for abalone. Occidental is good
           if you want to get out of the fog. -ausman
        \_ Mendocino Brewing Company is good, as is Anderson Valley
           Brewing Company in Boonville. Try to find and read a copy
           of the _Letters of Wanda Tinasky_.
        \_ I was the op. Mendocino was a cute little walkable town. I
           liked going to the one and only supermarket. It was almost
           comparable to Trader Joe and Whole Food Market. Other than that
           all the shops were selling useless things that no one really
           needed. Food was pretty good, but nothing that you
           couldn't get from the city. Fort Bragg totally sucked unless
           you were interested in riding the Skunk Train. Weather was
           far from ideal-- it never got above 63F, and overcast all the
           time. Cold and windy. The drive to Mendocino was a total drag.
           Route 128 was full of trailers, curves, etc etc. It was
           painful to be on 128 for nearly 3 hours. Overall, the pain of
           going to Mendocino was not forth the little pleasure you get
           being there. I hate Mendocino and I'm never going back.
           \_ sounds like you didn't take anyone's advice.
           \_ I grew up there.  It used to be a nice little hippie town, until
              it got taken over by parasites (aka tourists) and all of the
              stores that sold useful things were replaced by real estate
              offices selling vacation homes and Wilkes Bashford outlets.
              It sounds like you missed out on all the truly interesting
              stuff that's hiding there, so you might want to consider getting
              better advice and giving it another chance.  --lye
           \_ I advised you to go over the hill to someplace sunny, if you
              got sick of the fog. -ausman

5/31    The strip clubs in SF are well-documented. Are there any
        worthwhile in the South Bay, especially to take a woman to?
        (Looking for female strippers.)
        \_ Taking a woman to watch female strippers?  I wouldn't want a woman
           to take me to watch male strippers.  "Wow!  His is much bigger than
           yours ......"
                \_ I think the taking your woman to a strip club is
                   an east coast thing.
                   \_ What's the point?  -west coaster
                        \_ There's a school of thought that if you're
                           a dick to a female, she'll be more attached to
                           you.  Girls seem to like dicks, after all.
                           \_ No, they just don't like you.

5/31    PHP-related question:  a web app I'm using recently moved from
        CRYPT_STD_DES to CRYPT_MD5 for password hashing.  On the off chance
        anyone's faced a similar problem (I am having trouble getting a
        reply from the developers), am I missing something fundamental or
        am I just fucked if I want to migrate my existing userbase without
        having to reset their passwords?  -John
        \_ Can you provide auth'ing off of DES while re-encrypting and storing
           the new MD5?
           \_ Don't think so.  It looks to me like this was just kind of
              a planning fuckup. :-(  -John
              \_ I was going to suggest the same as the above person.  It is
                 "the standard" way of dealing with this.  If you can't do
                 that and apparently don't have access to the source, you're
                 hosed.  Sorry.  Maybe you can redirect them to some other
                 page you do have control of and rewrite their passwords from

5/31    I'm trying to set up Thunderbird to read my soda mail.  Does the soda
        mail incoming server use POP or IMAP?  And what are the incoming and
        outgoing server names?  Thanks.
        \_ I think you're going to want to use mead.csua for both incoming
           and outgoing.  I am almost positive we don't have unsecured pop,
           though we should have IMAP working.  Good luck.
