7/3     I'm reviewing my credit report, and they mention a geographical code
        (e.g, 0-49362310- 1-5335, some #s changed for privacy).  What sort of
        information does this encode?  There's one for each of my addresses.

8/30    Is wall just dead? The wallall command dies for me, muttering
        something about /var/wall/ttys not existing.
        \_ its seen a great drop in usage, though it seems mostly functional.

        \_ Couldn't open wall log!: Bad file descriptor

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

10/24  What's an easy way to see if say column 3 of a file matches a list of
       expressions in a file? Basically I want to combine "grep -f <file>"

       I can do this with "egrep -f " and use regexp instead of strings, but
       was wondering if there was some magic way to do this.
       \_ UNIX has no magic. Make a shell script to produce the ask or egrep

11/21   Lifehacker's recommending Dreamhost as a personal web hosting service.
        Apart from csua, who do you guys use? --erikred
        \_ What do you want to use it for? Do you need CGI or PHP?  My
           brother worked for Dreamhost and said they are unethical. In
           fact, he sued them. This refers to their treatment of customers
           and employees both. I don't know who  or what "Lifehacker" is,
