        "How to spot a woman of low character"
        \_ Ok that girl in Tramp Stamp is (*@&#($*@(#$*& HOT HOT HOT
           I don't care if she is of low character. HOT HOT HOT.
           \_ Trashy Coutur 4tw.
        \_ This is mostly stupid and misognynistic, by a guy who admits
           he will never marry. There is a thread of wisdom in here, but it
           is lost in the general hatred of women.
           \_ it is the Wisdom of a Berkeley PHD.
         \_ technically paolo its the wisdom of a UC Davis phd.  I'm not
         \_ technically its the wisdom of a UC Davis phd.  I'm not
            really sure what the point of all that was.
        \_ Wow, misogny is so edgy and cool!
        \_ Interesting. I think some of his characterizations are dead wrong
           and others 100% correct, but I don't sense misogyny here. There
           is some maybe in the comments, but not the original article.
           For instance, the present of tattoos (or not) is not misogynistic.
           I think it's a good way to spot men of low character, too.
           \_ If you don't sense misogyny you misogyny detector is seriously
              broken.  This isn't even an edge case dude.
           \_ So is she hot or not?
              She's (@&#(@$# AMAZINGLY HOT.
              \_ what is it you like, the bleached hair, the fake tits, or
                 the sluttiness?
                 \_ 1) hair-- not proven 2) maybe they're fake, who cares
                    3) oh yeah, I love that. I don't know any hetero who does not
                    like that.
                    3) oh yeah, I love that. I don't know any hetero who does
                       not like that.
                    \_ 1) Look at the eyebrows, 2) sane people, 3) speak for
                       \_ I'll still take this skank over any EECS girl in Soda
                          \_ For a one night stand, hell yes. For a
                             relationship, not really. My brother has a
                             lot of tattoos and piercings and for a while
                             he lived with me. During that time he brought
                             home or dated all manner of women of questionable
                             character. They were pleasant to look at, but
                             they had issues and were all kinds of crazy. I
                             would pass on that drama. Fake tits, tattoos,
                             and overly slutty dress are all big warning flags.
                             \_ I see, interesting. Tell us about the drama!
                                Do you have pictures of these sluts?
                                \_ Do you like being texted 500 times in an
                                   8 hour period? Girls threatening to kill
                                   themselves and making you rush to their
                                   place to make sure they didn't do it
                                   even though the relationship is "over"?
                                   Girls smashing your car windshield? Openly
                                   gathering phone numbers from men at the bar
                                   where you both arrived together? Taking
                                   \_ I know a brunette like this.
                                   their tops off in public (this sounds
                                   nice in theory but it can be rather
                                   embarrassing). Stealing money and
                                   \_ this actually sounds REALLY REALLY COOL.
                                      Then again I never had the pleasure...
                                   electronics from you while you are in
                                   the shower after a shag? Just lots of
                                   stupid shit. I was envious when he
                                   brought them home (once there were two
                                   Hooters waitresses who came out of his
                                   room with only towels on) but I was
                                   \_ HELL YEAH I'M JEALOUS OF YOUR BROTHER.
                                      (*&@#($*#@ stud!!! How do I become more
                                      like him? PS. you sound more like a loser
                                      who can't seem to get any.
                                      \_ That's because I don't date women of
                                         low character, but then I don't
                                         have to deal with the hassles
                                         either. If you want to date such
                                         women look for tattoos, fake
                                         tits, slutty dress like high platform
                                         shoes and tops with no bra. They'll be
                                         into you if you drink a lot, buy them
                                         drugs, do exciting activities like
                                         dirt bike, and look the other way
                                         when they hook up with their
                                         ex-bf after a night of drinking.
                                         You can look forward to hot sex,
                                         drama, diseases like hepatitis
                                         and/or mononucleosis, and possibly an
                                         occasional night in jail. Those women
                                         seem to love bad boys who are sweet at
                                         times (like when her puppy is sick)
                                         and at other times tell them
                                         their tits are too small when they
                                         have a 34Ds.
                                         have 34Ds.
                                         \_ I'd love to try women of low
                                            character but they have no interests
                                            in nerdy overweight sysadm like me.
                                            P.S. sluts make me horny     -op
                                   mostly glad when they left and he would
                                   be the first to say he is sick of that
                                   shit and wants to find a nice girl to
                                   marry and have kids with. I hope he does.
                                   She probably won't have fake tits or tattoos.
         \_ dude's a loon.  His premise in his first paragraph is that
            "We live in such a degenerate time that being a prostitute
            is seen as an "empowering" thing for women" ... which is true
            for only a tiny fraction of SF liberals.  He needs to move out
            of berkeley.  Or maybe not; I think a lot of zany people like
            living in berkeley because it gives them license to rail against
            something they disagree with.

        What does the "at sign" mean? This is on Mac OS. VMWare disk file.
        \_ The file has metadata attributes
           \_ How do I add/delete attributes to files? What about
              -rw-r--r--+ <-- what is the "+" sign? Also how do you make
              tar preserve these attributes?
              \_ Use the 'xattr' utility (not documented via man sadly)
                 Tar, cp, mv, etc do by default.  rsync needs -E
              \_ man ls, search for "The Long Format."  It's all there.
        \_ it wants to give you a rose and ask you out on a date.
           \_ like edgar from electric dreams?

7/17    Thanks to steven, et al. for restoring Soda. In lieu of www.csua providing
        status, could there be a text file with current status and future plans.
        I'm wondering if SpamAssassin is obsolete (and my procmailrc and scripts)
        and won't be restored, and what's filtering spam now.  thanks!
        \_ How do I buy steven a beer or donate gobs of money?
           \_ I got him a Hacker-Pschorr, he seems to like ales.  Prob IPAs
              too.  Just go to the office and hand it to him.
              \_ send him a drink on facebook.
                 \_ I'm sure it will have the same effect.
                    \_ I'm trying to push next-gen root staff to set up
                       the web server, which is why it's taking so long
                       ;)  I'll light a fire via email...
