3/24    Will an Ultra2's processors and ram work in an Ultra 60?
        \_ any of the ultrasparc II cpu's from an ultra2 should work
           fine in an ultra60. all the memory should be fine as well.
        \_ Depends on the Ultra60, I think. Ultra60 is not descriptive
           enough. U60 spanned a long period of time with a lot of
           changes. Better question is: WHY?! Trying to scavenge parts? --dim
           \_ I managed to pick up an U60 chassis (no proc/ram) for
              free and I've got some bits from an U2 (proc/ram) along
              with some PCI hme cards. If the U2 bits work in the U60
              I was planning on install OpenBSD on it and using it as
              I was planning on install OpenBSD on it and use it as
              my server/router/firewall.
              \_ you're sick.  stop that immediately.
        \_ The memory should be compatible. I am not so sure about CPUs.
           What kind of CPUs does your Ultra 2 have? The 300MHz CPU used in
           both machines has the same part#, so it should be compatible.
           I am not so sure about the 400MHz CPUs that some Ultra 2s used.
           The UltraSPARC I CPUs (200MHz or slower) that used to come with
           older Ultra2s are definitely not compatible with Ultra 60.
        \_ Only the 300MHz are compatible btw the two. All others are
           NOT: 400,200,167MHz work for U2; 360,450 work for U60
           This is from the Sun FE Handbook which is online as the
           Sun System Handbook linked from http://sunsolve.sun.com
           Sun is frigging badass when it comes to this shit.
           \_ True, but up until a year ago, the FE Handbook costed ~$1000.

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:

2/5     How is Firefox on version 10, while I still have 3.6 installed.
        I wait for the X.1 versions and they never come out.
        \_ I'm also on 3.6.26.  It claims that versions 4 - 10 are all faster
           than 3.6.x, but do they use more memory?  Thx.
           \_ Newer Firefox versions use less memory too:

6/5     In an effort to stabilize our services, we'll be rebuilding parts of
        the CSUA infrastructure over the course of this summer.  To give us
        some wiggle room, I've temporarily decreased soda's allocated RAM from
        8GB to 2GB.  If you need to run something that requires large amounts
        of memory, please send mail to root@csua.org and we'll try to
        accommodate your request.  --jordan

3/19    When you're explaining the stack to people do you draw it with the

7/25    What's up with that moving bit pattern that Win7 displays when it
        boots up?  (It's the one that's like in the Apple II days when you
        use the graphics memory for code or data while it's still in HGR
        mode.)  Is there a way to disable that?  It slows things down a lot
        every time I reboot my Win7 VM on my office machine if I RDP to the
        machine via DSL.  Thanks in advance.

7/20    For those who care btw, it looks like eclipse is now A Standard Tool
        at UCB ugrad cs, probably replaced emacs.  Furthermore, people get
        angry at seeing Makefiles, (since eclispe takes care of that).  I
        guess it's just a sign of the times.
        \_ The more people at my work use eclipse the less the code is
           managable in emacs.  I'm not sure which application's fault
