7/17    i think micro$oft's new language should be called C-
        to match the grade i got in cs164 -- Social-Science Major
        \_ WTF were you taking cs164 for as a fuzzy major?
           \_ To take space away from an EECS major? BTW I didnt
              really get a C-, but it's a better post that way.
              The major is only fuzzy because Math, CS and Bio havent
              figured it out yet.
                \_ Anything that needs to add the word "Science" to it's
                   description probably isn't.  Yes, including computer
                   science.   -cognitive science alum
                   \_ Amen to that. Computer science is either math or
                      engineering, depending on which side you're on. And
                      cognitive science, is, of course, bullshit.
                        \_ No, Cog Sci is either linguistics or neuro anatomy.
                           Don't judge it from the cogsci 5 course you took.
                                -cog sci alum
                           \_ I am judging from CogSci100, CogSci101, and
                              CogSci110 courses I took. Linguistics is
                                all seem to warship at berkeley?
                              either bullshit or linguistics. 110/115 series
                              or the 130's. Neuro anatomy is neuro anatomy
                              and those who call it cogsci are simply trying
                              to cover the rest of cogsci's bare ass.
                                    -- original poster
                           \_ oh, yeah?  which of those is the idioitic
                                arguments of that anti-AI crusader who you
                                all seem to worship at berkeley?
                           \_ Wow, and this wasn't even me. -- ilyas
                           \_ I don't "warship" John Searle.  He's a
                                   pompous arrogant ass who has nothing to do
                                   with anything.  -cog sci alum
                           \_ I don't like John Searle NOR George Lakoff,
                                   and yet I loved being CogSci at CAL. - Marco
                                        \_ At least Lakoff wasn't an asshole
                                           like Searle even if you don't like
                                           his lecture materials.  What'd you
                                           not like about him?
                                \_ warship? We have a warship? Let's put our
                                   football team on it and sail to Palo Alto.
                                        \_ We have a speeling disfunkshun.

7/8     Why do immigrants kick ass in science?
        \_ Cuz they have no friends
        \_ Cuz excelling in science requires less background of the local
           culture than excelling in other areas.

5/9     "Science Reveals How Not to Spill Your Coffee When Walking"
        No wonder the UC is short in funding.  Just put a damn lid on!

           some day we'll hear about studiets on studies", please note that the

3/7     My sister is graduating soon with a decree in information management.
        She was orignally CS, but couldn't cut the math, so her GPA sucks.
        However, she has had a couple of internships and did fine.  She did
        desktop support at RockYou and is currently doing web programming
        at UC Santa Cruz, but they can't keep her on after graduation.
        Anyone got any jobs?  She wanted to be a network admin, but right now

9/18    I forgot my math.  Say the probability of a bug happening is the
        unknown fixed value p in [0,1].  I attempt to reproduce the
        bug until it happens once.  Then it happens at my n-th trial, so I
        stop.  Now, what is the expected value of p?  Is it E(p) = 1/n?  Thx.
        \_ Did a quick program to test.  Looks like E(p) = 1/n
           (given assumption n(p) = sum x = 1 to inf of x*(1-p)^(x-1)*p

8/1     Yahoo to get 88% of the ad revenue in team up with m$.  Y!m$,
        \_ I thought Jerry Yang would never sell!
           \_ He's gone, replaced by some broad.
        \_ 88% of pittance is still pittance, I don't know how people
          think there is money in click through ads.  Who clicks on them?

        To those in academia, how do you organize the journal articles
        you keep (hard copies, that is)? By date? Author? Subject?
        Something else? Thanks.
        \_ I am not in academia, but author makes most sense. If you want, you
           can group by subject (Sun Spots, Solar Wind, Solar Flares) and then
