12/21   In Emacs, how do I make it so that it will resize its screen
        when the maximum resolution of my monitor changes? When I
        use my laptop, my emacs is too big (and I can't resize it
        because the bottom-right corner is not accessible).
        \_ Which OS?  Can't you drag the top border (not a corner) to resize
           the height to be smaller?

8/8     Trying to make a list of interesting features languages have
        touted as this whole PL field comes around, trying to see if they
        have basis in the culture of the time: feel free to add some/dispute
        1970 C, "portability"
        1980 C++, classes, oop, iterators, streams, functors, templates

3/8     I'm reading about an old exploit where someone used a buffer overflow
        in a printer daemon to get "daemon privileges," which allowed them
        to use another exploit on the mail delivery program to get root.  I'm
        not sure what daemon privileges are.  Is there some set of priveleges
        that most daemons run on that is higher than user but lower than root?
        What are they?  I've never heard this before.

11/11   I want a home nas so my laptops aren't always running out of space,
        what's a good buy?
        \_ I did a bunch of research and ended up with Dlink DNS-321. It
           is newer than DNS-323 with less problems. It doesn't have as
           much buffer as DNS-323, but if you're transfer files bigger
           than 32 megs, the sustained rate for both are equivalent. I

6/9     Video RAM question:
        Let's say I need to display a shape model that was ~3 million
        plates that are each 72 bytes (216MB). Do I have to have a video
        card that has more than 216 MB of RAM or can the system dip into
        main RAM in order to display it? As I understand it, the VRAM is
        a buffer but what happens when the buffer fills? In this instance

4/28    When I watch videos in Yahoo News, they are very sluggish.  Is
        there a way to configure Firefox or IE to buffer the whole video before
        it starts playing?  I tried pausing, waiting for a while, and then
        playing again, but it didn't help.  Thx.

4/19    I want to know all the secrets about Google infrastructures like
        GFS, chubby, bigtable, megastore, stubby, protocol buffer, gaia,
        harmony, borg, borgmon, loas, focus, protocol buffer, moma,
        rephil, cat2?
        Where can I learn about these things?
