2/19    I just realized that my real estate broker has a PhD in plant
        molecular cell biology from an Ivy League school in the mid 70s.
        Now she has to deal with a bunch of young dot-comers, and they're
        pain in the ass.                        -Only a BS in EEC$
        \_ My agent used to be a hardware engineer.  He switched to real estate
           when he got laid off during the 80's.  Now he's doing very well.
        \_ Are you trying to buy a house too? I am trying to buy in Noe and
           I keep getting outbid by 200-300k. Insane.
           \_ Here in the suburbs, homes are cheap and plentiful for all!

2/19    I program a lot by sshing to a Linux cluster.  So I'm used to using
        Xemacs to code.  This works fine from a Linux or Windows workstation,
        but sometimes I have to use a Mac.  On Mac, the meta is usually
        bound to option, but that often doesn't work over ssh for some reason.
        This makes using emacs a real pain.  Any suggestions on how to fix it?
        (Other than "use vi")
        \_ Are you using  If so, go to the Terminal menu, click
           the Preferences... menu item, click the Settings button on the top
           of the window that pops up and then click the Keyboard button/tab
           in the right hand pane of that window.  There should be a checkbox
           at the bottom of that pane that says "Use option as meta key".
           Checking that box fixed this problem for me.
