4/28    I just discovered and the
        account ~genehkan. How depressing. Did anyone here know him? What was he
        \_ motd has link to more info than wiki:
        \_ guess what.  he was depressed.
        \_ I didn't know him but he seemed pretty nice and geeky. He was active
           in the XCF, but I don't think that exists anymore.
        \_ He told me he got to meet Lars and he had come up with a good way
           to move forward with internet music.  Then he "suicided".
        \_ No, but I was friends with the Naked Guy when he was at Cal.
           \_ The Naked Girl lived at my coop.
        \_ It was really funny how fast after he died that the sysadmins of
           csua and xcf purged all his mail/accounts/homedirs.

4/28    Win 3.1 was more widely adopted than Win 3.0.  Win XP (5.1) was more
        widely adopted than Win 2k (5.0).  Now it looks like Win 7 (6.1) is
        going to be more widely adopted than Vista (6.0).  Is this a trend on
        Microsoft x.0 versions being bad?
        \_ duh.
        \_ "more widely adopted" ... well... what are you basing these numbers
           on?  win3.0 was adopted, win3.1 was adopted, so was wfw3.11.  But
           wfw3.11 had few features that were used outside of the corporate
           networks, so win3.1 was the "last version" of win3.  Where's
           win95/98/me and winnt 3.51/4 in this list?
           \_ He's talking out of his ass.  It's a troll.  He totally failed
              to take into account things like WinXP came out and was designed
              specifically for the gamer market.  Remember having to play
              starcraft as Admin on win2k? You didn't need to do that in Xp.
              It's also why gamers refused vista, not only did the RO reg
              mess games up, but the filesystem layout also messed up things.
              You can't analyze these "consumer trends" without thinking about
              *the consumers*.

4/28    Laura Bush ran a stop sign and killed someone in 1963:
        How come she didn't go to jail?
        \_ Car drivers rarely go to jail for killing people.  -tom
        \_ Ted Kennedy killed a girl. Dick Cheney shot a man.
        \_ Ted Kennedy killed a girl. Hillary and Dick Cheney both shot a man.
           \_ Wow, one out of three ain't bad, factchecker.
        \_ Lesson:  Don't dump Laura Bush, she'll kill your ass.
        \_ Lesson, people with power get away with murder.  Didn't you um
           learn this a long time ago tho?
        \_ "Know your rights!  Murder is a crime.  Unless it was done
           By the Police Man.  Or an Aristocrat." - Joe Strummer
           \_ Who's Joe Strummer?
              \_ He was star forward of the San Jose Clash
