10/20   Ever wonder why you get some much junk mail?  It's because the United
        States Postal Service encourages such practice!
        \_ of the corporations, by the corporations and for the corporations...
        \_ Yeah, they're self supporting.

                   are one vast tree farm.
                   \_ yawn.  no one is chopping trees in madagascar to get
                      paper to send you junk mail.  it takes 50,000 trees
                      to print *each* edition of the sunday NYT.  you think
                      they're stripping madagascar?  no, it's all tree farm
                      trees raised for that purpose.
              \_ poor cows.
                 \_ and poor wheat and corn and everything else grown for
                    us to murder and eat.

        Only 28% of millionaires consider themselves wealthy. So it is
        not just my wife!
        \_ People have been using the term "millionaire" as a synonym for
           "rich" for a very long time.  But there's this little thing called
           inflation.  Having a million dollars in 1900 is roughly equivalent

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

11/5    motd enormous bowel movement guy, do you eat wheat gluten?

10/29   How much wheat gluten exists in pasta?
        \_ I think "all of it"?  If you're avoiding wheat gluten, you have
           to avoid pasta and most bread products.
           \- you can eat barley
        \_ You could try soba noodles.  I don't know if they have gluten
           in them, but they might not.  They are also high in protein.

11/1    I'm the feeling tired after beating-off guy #2. I've been avoiding
        wheat + dairy and have been on mostly rice + soy diet for almost
        2 wks and I still feel really tired after beating-off. I don't think
        wheat gluten and cassein cause tiredness. The good thing is that
        I've lost about 2 pounds in the process.
        \_ WHAT.  NO.  I am really tired after eating guy.  Fucker.

        WHEAT GLUTEN and casein, among other genetic dispositions
        and environment factors, may cause AUTISM.
        \_ Because before this last generation NOBODY ate wheat and
           dairy.  Jesus christ lay off on your fear of food.

10/25   motd wheat gluten guy here.  Now I think I might have borderline
        diabetes.  Eating a lot of food makes me tired.  How do I figure it
        out?  I had a blood test a year ago, if I had diabetes, would
        the doctor notice?
        \_ Doesn't eating a lot of food make everyone older than 25 tired?
        \_ Probably.  Checking for blood sugar is routine.  Mine's always

10/24   Hi.  I read a fascinating article about people who think they
        might be allergic to wheat gluten, in the East Bay Express last
        A lot of their symptoms sound like mine.  I get really tired after

5/8     Hello everyone!  This is Josh Hawn, CSUA Tech VP for Spring 2012.
        About 2 weeks ago, someone brought to my attention that our script
        to periodically merge /etc/motd.public into /etc/motd wasn't
        running.  When I looked into it, the cron daemon was running, but
        there hadn't been any root activity in the log since April 7th.  I
        looked into it for a while, but got lost in other things I was

11/16   We'll be taking all CSUA machines offline in the near future for a Soda
        Hall server room reorganization (we're being moved to a neighboring
        server cabinet).  Downtime will hopefully be minimal.  --jordan
        \_ Thanks for all your work keeping the machines running!  It's
           been awesome having soda actually working again.
        \_ Update:  this is tentatively scheduled for Saturday afternoon.

8/9     So I just found out that an old college friend of mine lost her
        four month old daughter to SIDS. What is the correct response here?

11/21   Lifehacker's recommending Dreamhost as a personal web hosting service.
        Apart from csua, who do you guys use? --erikred
        \_ What do you want to use it for? Do you need CGI or PHP?  My
           brother worked for Dreamhost and said they are unethical. In
           fact, he sued them. This refers to their treatment of customers
           and employees both. I don't know who  or what "Lifehacker" is,

11/1    I'm moving from a home in Fremont to another home within the same ZIP
        code in Fremont, and AT&T customer service says I cannot transfer my
        DSL service because DSL is not available at my new home.  Is that BS?
        Are they just trying to push me to subscribe to their more expensive
        U-verse service?  I'm not asking for any lightening-speed connection.

        Google Wave No More. The people who worked on it were pretty smart.
        They wrote up a super awesome OKR with extremely low bar as a measure
        of success, exceeded everyone's expectations by going above those
        bars, and got big fat bonuses and promotions as a result of their
        planning. Brilliant.
