7/19    In C or C++, how do I write the code of a function with variable
        number of parameters in order to pass the variable parameters to
        another function that also has variable number of parameters?  Thanks.
        \_ The usual way (works on gcc 3.0+, Visual Studio 2005+):

6/24    Yahoo vs. Google vs. Bear Sterns employee attrition. Yahoo may be
        dying but it's nothing compared to Bear. Google still rocks, so
        hold on to their stocks! And if you're leaving Yahoo, there's
        a resignation-letter template to use.

9/20    Is there a way in Twiki to have children inherit settings from a
        parent? I know there is a WebTopicEditTemplate which you can use
        for an entire Web, but what I want is to be able to have all of
        the children under a given topic automatically be populated with
        a template of settings when created. Is there a way to do that?

11/02   I need to include instructions on how to create a tcpdump file as part
        of a Word Doc testplan . What I would like to do is to be able to cut
        and paste from a Unix shell window into a word document without
        losing the formatting or having it come out like regular text.
        Is there a template or mode I can use for this inside word?

McFall believes the district attorney is simply using the teen to get a badly written law revised. While Assistant District Attorney Richard Sitzman said last year about Robertson's story, "if this is fiction, then it goes too far," he 45 admitted in court (PDF) that he had trouble with the law he was using to charge Robertson. It has caused me problems analytically from the day I first read it," he said. He even 46 likened the statute (PDF) to something out of George Orwell's book 1984. Legislators are very hesitant to assess damages on their own work. Without public outcry, a law would never be repealed and reintroduced with new language, absent this kind of public concern," McFall said. In the meantime, Robertson's family has posted a $10,000 bond to release him on bail. And they've had to refinance their house and shell out tens of thousands of dollars for his defense. Kathy Robertson has spent the last year and a half working hard to defend her son. She set up a 47 website about the issue and just this week she uncovered evidence that may bolster his case. Despite the fact that her son has always maintained that he didn't create the story "Evacuation Plans," but merely added to a paragraph that was already written, no one has ever come forward to admit writing the first paragraph. But this week, Kathy Robertson suddenly got the idea to run a Google search on the first sentence of the story. The search results revealed the exact paragraph buried deep in a 48 page of the University of Arkansas website. A second search on HotBot revealed 49 another university website with the same paragraph. After a bit of sleuthing, she discovered that the paragraph comes on a CD-ROM that comes with a 50 textbook for learning Adobe PageMaker. The paragraph is the sample text used in a template for creating ads in PageMaker. The text describes evacuation plans for taking shelter in case of a hurricane. Kathy Robertson says she's willing to bet that someone in her son's Web design class had loaded the CD-ROM onto the computer he used to write the story. She's hoping that this bit of evidence may prove that her son's story was an inspired piece of fiction. That may or may not be enough to finally get the case dismissed. McFall says she's worried that if the case does go to trial, a jury's response would be unpredictable. End of story Send e-mail icon Have a comment on this article?

Somehow the media was incorrectly informed that Brian had written an email, which was reported in televised news as well as newspapers. The story was not sent, shared, or distributed in any way. The media reporting of an email made it sound as if the story was being sent out over the internet. Other descrepancies included the reporting of the media that he was 19 when he was still 18. The televised media interviewed students at Moore High School. A friend of Brian's was interviewed, but complained to Brian that when he stated supportive comments they were cut out. The media was quick to interview and broadcast students who said they were scared (some on the verge of hysteria). The only reason these students were scared was because the media reported the event after Brian's arrest, otherwise they wouldn't have known. The entire incident happened weeks before, but only after the media broke the news was there fear and anxiety. They also used the photograph of when he was booked left , with his glasses removed. He was scared and somber at the time this photo was taken, and the frequent showing of this photo did little to portray Brian as a real person, but instead a booked criminal. At the time of the airing, we had just experienced Judge Ring's ruling that the law was overbroad and vague. Hopefully, this incident will balance Brian in his journalistic endeavors.
