2/28    Is anyone's IMAP password no longer working?
        \_ for the past two or three days, connecting to mead.  :(
        \_ It works for me.  Could you please tell me when you stopped
           being able to log in, and what error message you get?  --mconst

        Republicans, as a group, may be happier because, on average, they
        prioritize personal goals and largely identify with people similar
        to them. Compared with Democrats and Independents, their main goals
        are narrower and more selfish, and thus more easily obtained.
        \_ Dems need to get the fuck smarter AND co-opt self-reliance
        \_ What are the goals of (D) and (I)?  If your goals are pie in the
           sky and truly unreachable of course you'll be unhappy.  This has
           nothing to do with your trolling.
        \_ Rich people are happier than poor people. Does this surprise
           \_ Actually past a certain poverty level, it's not entirely clear
              this is true. -- ilyas

2/28    Looking for that URL where it accepts an address and publishes
        all the criminals and offenders who live in your area. What
        is that URL? Google failed me.
        \_ keywords: crime data crimes criminal offender molester molesters
        \_           meganslaw megans law
        \_ You cannot find all criminals, only sex offenders. Google
           "Megan's Law".
              Only 30 sex offenders within 5 miles of where I live. You?
              \_ More interesting is what percentage of the population
                 is sex offenders. I live in a city, so I am sure that
                 there are thousands.
                 \_ No. This is a good example where absolute numerical
                    number determines how well you child will get exposed
                    to child molesters.
                    \_ That could only possibly be true if you interacted
                       with everyone in a certain radius of your home, no
                       matter how dense the population was. What is the
                       percentage of your neighbors that are molestors?
                       Afraid to share?
                       \_ Hey dumb ass. I just checked San Jose, over 800+
                          sex offenders. San Francisco has over 400 sex
                          offenders. You were saying?
                          \_ Just answer the question.
                          \_ Just answer the question, if you are smart
                             enough to do so "dumb ass."
                          \_ Wow! 1700+ molesters live withing five miles
                             of downtown LA!
                             \_ Exactly, the city's full of molesters and
                                that's why suburbs are better for kids.
                                \_ I just checked, Chico CA has 84 molesters
                                   in a city of 71,000. That is twice as many
                                   per capita than San Francisco!
                       \_ I live in the suburbs so my interactions are very
                          limited, and it's easy to memorize 30 faces.
                          Can you say the same thing about... San Francisco?
                          \_ It is true that misanthropes tend to interact
                             with fewer people. Why not move to rural Texas
                             into a compound and only interact with people
                             that you know? You do know that children are
                             more likely to be molested in the suburbs than
                             in the city, right?
                             \_ I live in Irvine. Check Irvine and click
                                the red dot right above 405. Even our
                                sex offenders look professional (in suit)
                                vs. creepy looking old guys elsewhere.
                                Suburbs rule man.
                             \_ Damn....  So child molester count has now
                                become a city vs. suburb troll.  How about
                                we don't *ever* let child molesters in public?
                                The NIMBYism is ridiculous.
                             \_ I'd like to see a link for that.  Anyway, the
                                VAST majority of child molestation is done by
                                \_ And where do those relatives live?
                                   \_ In the suburbs, obviously.  All bad
                                      people ive in suburbs.
                                      \_ Not all bad people, just a
                                         disproportionate number of them.
        \_ Hey, are you the same guy that claims the government takes out
           a majority of his take home pay? I just wanna know because this
           line of confused thinking sounds suspicious to me...
           \_ No that is not me but I do agree with most of what dimwit
              has to say.

        per month for HDTV in the future thing.  ok tnx.
        \_ That's a good reason to vote for or against someone.  hdtv pricing.
           What is the price of a slice of cake?  How much does a circus ticket
           \_ don't know what you are on about... is the 100 per month
              thing McCain's fault?  did he champion it?  did the tv
              lobbyists compromise him?  is he just a dumbshit and got

        But here he says he knows al qaeda is in Iraq

2/28    I just found out N Korea has been printing superbills in an attempt
        to devaluate American dollars. What's scary about this is that
        the superbills are indistinguishable from real printed money.
        That is so fucked up. Damn you Kim Jong Il!
        \_ I doubt he was doing it just to devaluate US dollars.  It's not
           like he couldn't use the money.
        \_ BTW, does counterfeiting one currency have any effect on other
           currencies other than the exchange rates against the counterfeited
           \- pakistan also counterfitted INR 500Rs rupee notes.
              i think it most you can cause problem in a small area.
              like this led to Rs 500 rupee notes not being accepted in
              nepal, but not that big a problem all over.
        \_ Probably more for the desperately needed foreign goods than
           to devalue the dollar.
        \_ They should start running the African Nigerian scam with a
           N Korea twist. They can profit from dumb ass greedy Americans
           while teaching Americans a lesson.

2/28    Alright guys, this is the last sign of GLOBAL RECESSION starting
        with the US. Recession Swami over and out.
        \_ interesting to see them talking about stagflation, with inflation
           driven by rising oil costs in spite of a halted economy. Fed rate
           cuts wont help there.  It'll be the late 70's all over again.
           obligatory PEAK OIL reference...

2/28    5:30am-6:00am bark bark bark
        7:00am-10:00am bark bark bark
        I don't know where it's coming from and it's driving me NUTS.
        I can't sleep as the sound goes through my ear plugs.
        What can I do?
        \_ Talk to your neighbor about it.  Then call animal control if it
           doesn't stop.
           \_ Ding! Ding! Ding!  We have a winner!  The way sound complaints
              work in most places, the sound has to be persistent (as measured
              on the cop's watch according to local statutes) and before or
              after certain hours.  So 10am barking?  SOL.  6am barking will
              get your neighbor talked to and eventually fined if you live in
              a civil area.  Anyway, a dog barking that much is probably not
              being taken care of so a call to animal control might save the
              dog from bad owners.  There are few bad dogs, there are lots of
              bad owners.
              \_ On my street now and then some kid goes up and down on some
                 mini-motorcycle that is insanely loud. It's in the daytime
                 but it's still really too loud. Can I call the cops on him?
                 \_ Seem to remember there was a law passed in CA requiring
                    a drivers licence for those things.  It may have gone
                    into effect by now.  Call the cops and ask.
                 \_ Yes and I did a few years ago when the kids in my area
                    bought one and took turns going up and down my street
                    (not, BTW, their own street!). The police said that
                    most of those things are not street legal and they
                    would cite them if it wasn't. I never hear the kids
        \_ figure out what keeps it quiet from 6 to 7 am
           \_ Bitches?
        \_ poison it.
           \_ That can get you in jail.
              \_ A sense of humor can do that in some countries too.
                 \_ Killing someone's dog can get you in jail right here.
                 \_ Yah, it's the obvious joke. I thought I'd point out that
                    there are specific laws about poisoning pets.

              in Berkeley. Is there some way I can get an account and ssh in?
              \_ well, sucks for you. but yes, they still have some sparc
                 machines. mostly solaris/linux x86 and windows now, though.
           \_ I've got a few in my garage, and one I could boot up now, but
              it is running a year-old opensolaris build. Let me know if you're
              still interested. -ERic
              \_ I'm very interested.  If it's easiest for you, remote access
                 should be fine.  But if you live in the bay area, I'd love to
                 just borrow one. It would be REALLY great if I could install
                 Solaris Express on it, but that's not strictly required.
