12/14   Day 11, 0 masterbation and I'm actually starting to feel GREAT! No
        sinful urges whatsoever, much less sleep and much more productive
        at work. First week was quite a struggle but after going through
        withdraw I feel pretty good now. I also walk/run more to release
        a lot of sexual frustrations which I think probably contributed to
        losing 2 pounds and feeling great. I can't believe I'm saying this
        but abstinence rules, no wonder the same 2 religious guys near
        Campinelle and Dwinelle Hall who tried to get me to go to church
        always seem so happy and optimistic as if they're on drugs all the
        time. You know, if abstinence & exercise work for dumb ass GWB,
        it must work for for anyone. I still watch the History Channel but
        I no longer porn browse and jerk off in parallel. I'll still
        post on the motd if there are cool Hitler, WW2, & Jewish stuff
        worthy to troll on motd.   anyways i m liberated from
        the shackles of human sexual urges and i feel immortal!
        GO ABSTINENCE!  w00t!                           -no laid guy #3
        \_ dans? is that you?
        \_ You might try adding avoiding all wheat gluten too while you're at
        \_ Trolls just ain't what they used to be. At the very least spell
           the word correctly: MASTURBATION
        \_ Sinful urges? 2 happy religious guys? GWB? Abstinence? All you
           missed was the global warming, abortion, and gun control trolls.
           Oh and death penalty.  I think that would have covered all your
           bases.  Belong to us.

12/13   Why are many new hires today obsessed with Design Patterns?
        \_ I think it's the CS fad/perceived silver bullet of the decade, much
           the same way as OOP was supposed to solve everything in a decade
           past.  Lack of experience + impressionable young minds = sycophancy
           \_ why are you up at 5:02AM? are you actually hoping your hardwork
              will pay off if/when your company ever goes public?
              \_ I'm up writing.  I try not to pull two double-shifts in a row
                 for work if I can avoid it. -dans
                 \_ writing about what, startups? Like what Philip Greenspun
                    wrote a while ago?
                    \_ A bunch of things actually.  At the moment, I'm
                       focusing on a talk I'm doing on the performance
                       benefits of JSON vs. XML for's HackerTV
                       series in late February.  I think the talk will be
                       titled: Rise of the Stupid Data Exchange Format:
                       JSON vs. XML, when all you have is a hammer, everything
                       looks like a nail. -dans
                       looks like a nail.  I'm curious, what's your take on
                       Phil Greenspun?  It's indisputable that ArsDigita
                       detonated in part due to severe mismanagement.
                       Nonetheless, based on his writing, Greenspun seems like
                       a pretty clueful guy. -dans
                       \_ dear dans:  SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP
                          YOU FUCKING MORON.
                          \_ Dude.  You're really hostile. -dans

12/13   Any reccomendations for good spots on campus to get hot and heavy with
        a date ?

12/13   Fake parking tickets story: (SF Gate)
        \_ Wasn't someone on the motd complaining about a quasi legal parking
           ticket?  Here's more:
           \_ This is actually more relevant to that Regional Parking Inc.
              thing than I previously thought. Thank you; I'm definitely _not_
              paying them now.

12/13   What is the difference between A share and B share (priority?) in a
        stock?  I am seeing a 10x price differential in BRK.A and BRK.B but
        with the same earning power.
        \_ It is different in every company. With BRK, the A is actually
           worth 33 B shares. They don't have the same earning power. With
           companies like GOOG, it has to do with how many votes each
           is worth.
           \_ In the case of GOOG most shares are worth no votes, which is
              yet another reason not to own that POS. The Class B shares
              are the powerful ones, but good luck buying any.
           \_ Wrong.
              \_ Thanks for the straight skinny. I guess the A is actually
                 worth 30 B shares.

12/14   My wife would like a gift card for a good sausage, or possibly a day
        spa sort of place.  (Some place relaxing I guess.)  I live in Livermore.
        any ideas?
        \_ Yelp.  Spa.  Search.
           \_ I'm sorry, I don't know what this means. -op
              \_ I think PP means go to enter "spa" and
                 "Livermore, CA", and click search.  Apparently
                 is some kind of customer review site.  -- !PP
        \_ Nob Hill Spa is outstanding (it's in SF, however)
           \_ Is there a Raley's spa?
        \_ I took my wife to Kabuki Springs & Spa for a 50 minute Swedish
           massage for her birthday.
           Highly recommended doesn't even begin to cover it.
           \_ Wow, that sounds perfect, but I'm afraid getting to and from SF
              will negate the stress relief of the massage.
              \_ Combine it with brunch, dinner, a show.... She'll sleep all
                 the way home.

12/14   When I use Apple Mail and IMAP, I notice that it slowly sucks down
        all the headers AND the bodies of my email inboxes, which is cool
        in case society collapses and I don't have a connection to the
        internet.  How do I make Mozilla Thunderbird do this?  I'm
        pretty sure it's only grabbing the headers, until I look at the
        particular message.
        \_ Offline settings for the account, check "make available when

12/14   What the heck are SDHC flash memory cards?
        what's the SD?
        can i use SDHC cards with my old stuff?
        \_ SD - secure digital, HC - High Capacity. You probably cannot
           use SDHC in old stuff b/c HC is a different memory addressing
           scheme. Some old stuff like Treo 650s can be hacked to work
           w/ SDHC cards, but most can't.

12/14   Ok so I'm watching late night TV and I'm wondering if it's worth
        $9.99 for 2 Girls Gone Wild DVDs. Is it topless only, or does it
        show a bit more?
        \_ More to the point, they'll continue dinging your credit card
           every month. It's a subscription service, not a one-time
        \_ Why buy? The guy who created this stuff is in jail.
           check the torrents if you are really interested
        \_ Why would you want to watch some 19 year olds partying 4 years
           ago in TJ?  What would it matter if they were topless vs. having
           wild weasel sex with each other and everyone else in sight?
           \_ Are you a straight chick? A gay guy?
           \_ Why would I want to watch a bunch of wild naked 19 year old
              chicks? I can't believe you just asked that...
              \_ Perhaps the pp left the operative phrase "pay to"

12/14   Is there a way that I can export my facebook incoming and sent
        messages, other than copy and paste?
