10/20   Who manages emacs for soda ? I want to add something to the lisp dir.
        \_  And who are you?
                If I tell you; will you fart in my general direction
        \_ It's in /usr/local/bin, hence is managed by root.  However requests
           to add stuff to the lisp dir will most likely be answered with
           "put it in your own damn lisp dir twink"
           \_ maybe we need a /csua/lib/e-lisp added in  for something cool
              enough to be shared but not official enough to add to the real
              emacs distribution?
                \- if there isnt some really good reason to put it inthe
                site-lisp dir, people should put it in their own space.
                if you dont know what "good reasons" are, you probably cant
                make this judgement. you should of course include an ISUCK
                switch :-)  --psb
                \_ I want leim input method in the distribution

         from silicon valley that gets magically
         transported into some world where magic is real
         and uses computer programming skillz to become the world's

12/17   wtf is happening to the dollar?
        \_ People are finally taking Bernanke seriously when he says he
           is going to print as many dollars as he has to, to reinflate
           the dollar.
           is going to print as many dollars as he has to, to kill deflation.

7/28    So, I'd like to try playing with a functional language.  Any
        \_ Haskel.  Why would you start with anything else?
        \_ Haskell if you want a _functional_ language.  Ocaml if you want to
           see what a proper language implementation looks like.  LISP if
           you want old fogies to think you are cool. -- ilyas

4/2     Is there an interpreted version of C or C++ that can be used for
        educational purposes? It doesn't have to be full-featured or
        strictly adhere to the standards, but it's painful for students
        to change a variable in a for loop and then wait for a compile
        to see how it changes the result. Something really lightweight
        would encourage them to play around a lot more and learn more in

3/7     In emacs 21, is there a way in Emacs-Lisp to detect whether emacs was
        started with the "-r" switch?  In C mode, the syntax colors are
        different when I start emasc with and without "-r".  I want to do the
        same in my elisp code, but I can't find how this is done in cc-mode.el.
        Thanks.  -- yuen
        \- are you sure what you are talking about is being done by the cc*.el

2/9     Looking for a Javascript slider bar example. The first example
        on Google is horrible-- initialization code all over the place,
        global variables, method conventions suck, etc. Thanks!
        \_ I don't have an answer for you, but what do you think of this

8/11    How do you find out the max # of file descriptors for a process,
        thread, and entire system?
        \_ Dep on OS. Are the youth today assuming "linux is the standard"?
           That is kinda sad.

3/16    I'm looking to troll the motd. What are some good topics guaranteed
        to get results?
        \_ sex!
        \_ Easy.  Anything of interest to more than 1 person that isn't
           resolvable.  Next!

2/21    What is the best way to get the current method name in Java?  So far
        I have seen 3 approaches:
        1. Create new Exception, grab the first frame off its stack trace.
           Inelegant, requires creating a stack trace (expensive).
           \_ Yeah it sucks.  Yeah it does much more work than you need.
              Yeah it is really fragile and may break when you switch java
