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

5/7     What's a good reverse port forwarding for a PC(inside firewall) ->
        Unix, so that I can VNC into the Unix that gets forwarded to
        PC's VNC server?

           Syntax, to be executed from the PC behind firewall:

1/20    I've been using tcsh as shell program tool (i know, bad shell to
        do scripting).  One thing I've noticed when I extract xml file
        is that the variable type automatically change from
        integer/string to... almost an array-like data structure when
        the output of the xml key/value is more than one (it's more
        like a string separated by space, but I was very impressed as

        \_ As someone who tried out Python and disliked it, is there a reason I
           should take a look at it again?
           \_ Not really. Why'd you dislike Python? I love it.

11/3    Anyone point me to a solution for OSX  mac printing to a windows domain\
based computer that requires authorising. All the syntax that I have seen in var\
ious posts does not work (e.g. smb://username:password@machine/queue ). I was wo\
ndering if I should just accept it and wait until smbpool is fixed? Connecting\
via smbclient works just fine.

7/14    Shell Programming question: I want to call a script with 1 arg
        and have it figure out whether $1 is a MAC address or an IP address
        and then do call the appropriate function.  What is the best way
        to do this, given that sh/bash/ksh do not have something like
        the =~ in perl.  Check for exit status of grep, or is there a
        a better way?  For the moment, let's just say the two tests are:

        \_ This article is crap.  While yes, 99.9% of all websites don't
           need any serious scalability plans, if any of them become worth
           anything they will need to scale.  If you write a web application

4/2     Is there an interpreted version of C or C++ that can be used for
        educational purposes? It doesn't have to be full-featured or
        strictly adhere to the standards, but it's painful for students
        to change a variable in a for loop and then wait for a compile
        to see how it changes the result. Something really lightweight
        would encourage them to play around a lot more and learn more in

3/7     In emacs 21, is there a way in Emacs-Lisp to detect whether emacs was
        started with the "-r" switch?  In C mode, the syntax colors are
        different when I start emasc with and without "-r".  I want to do the
        same in my elisp code, but I can't find how this is done in cc-mode.el.
        Thanks.  -- yuen
