6/18    Henceforth, any discussion not related to Computer Science will
        be censored. The University does not pay you to discuss politics,
        religion, girls, or any of that superfluous stuff. Get back to work.

8/16    I just left my employer. They didn't ask to get their HW back.
        Is is common for employers to contact me a few months/years later
        and ask for their HW back?
        \_ Is it an iPhone 9 prototype? :-)
           \_ as a matter of fact, it is just a 2 year old laptop
              and they don't seem to keep track of inventor

5/1     What's the difference between CS and Computer Engineering?
        \_ One is science and the other is engineering.
        \_ From
           'A folkloric quotation ... states that "computer science is no more
           about computers than astronomy is about telescopes."  The design

12/18   Happy 25th birthday Perl, and FUCK YOU Larry Wall for fucking up
        the computer science formalism that sets back compilers development
        back for at least a decade:
        \_ I tried to learn Perl but was scared away by it.  Maybe scripting
           lanauages have to be like that in order to work well?

6/9     I have a pair of Levi's jeans newly purchased (gift) and they are
        so damn thin I am afraid they might rip just going into the drier.
        WTF has happened to Jeans in the last few decades and which brand
        has the highest thickness to cost ratio?
        \_ I've been wearing Kirkland jeans from Costco for a few years.
           Quality-wise, including thickness to cost ratio, has been very

        Amusing "history" of computer science.
        \_ Where's the mentioning of Al Gore the inventor of AlGorithm?

11/20   Are there tools that can justify a chunk of plain ASCII text by
        replacing words with words of similar meaning and inserting/removing
        commas into the text?  I received a 40-line plain text mail where
        all the lines are justified on left and right.  Every word and comma
        is followed by only one space, and every period is followed by two
        spaces.  The guy is my kid's karate instructor which I don't think is

4/20    Is the United States still leading the world in terms of the
        computer network industry? Eg, creating the cables, the routers
        the software, etc etc.  ObCisco, but just wondering if anything
        changed much in Layer 1, 2, 3 technologies.

10/31   root, could you please squish jblack's account for using a bot
        to post on motd?
        \_ heaven forbid we utilize our trade - turin
        \_ you mean for posting conservative views?
           \_ is he the guy that pasted two pages of text in the motd?
              what would be non-h0zerish is if he clipped a section he liked

3/23    Raise your hand if you don't know what motdedit is or why you should
        use it.
        And/or: Why does the motd seem to travel back in time?
        \_ Raise your hand if you don't care about motdedit.
        \_ motdedit is for the weak.  we've been over this.
        \_ The time travel thing is the result of censor/restore wars.

8/28    Thank you motd censor, for cleansing the motd of anything useful or
        \_ I try.
           \_ Let's see: Owen Wilson, a fairly talented person, attempts
              suicide, but you, a talentless hack, don't have the decency to
              rid us of your presence? How sad.
