9/1     What is the etymology of 'bit'?  Is it from the use as "something
        small" or maybe a contraction of Binary unIT?
        \_ binary digit.
        \_ Coined by Tha Man himself, John Tukey.

        Google Wave No More. The people who worked on it were pretty smart.
        They wrote up a super awesome OKR with extremely low bar as a measure
        of success, exceeded everyone's expectations by going above those
        bars, and got big fat bonuses and promotions as a result of their
        planning. Brilliant.

1/12    Sometimes my Thinkpad hangs for 5-10 minutes when I unsuspend it.
        Sometimes it comes back in only 10 seconds. Whats up man? I've
        noticed that my MacBook is starting to take a while too (5-10
        seconds) but the old MacBooks were almost instantaneous. I've
        experimented with turning off services, and the only one that
        seems to do the trick is closing Yahoo Messenger, which...

10/14   2 apache 2.0.52 servers running on Linux boxes.  Identical httpd.conf
        files (except for ServerName).  But on one, if a CGI script takes
        longer than 300 seconds, it times out.  The other, not.  Why is that?
        \_ Perhaps network equipment configuration. Or try comparing settings
           in /proc/sys/net.
           \_ I ran /sbin/sysctl -a | grep tcp, all settings are the same.

5/26    I seem to recall that ATI was going to open-source it's drivers
        does anyone know if the ATI drivers for Linux still suck?
        \_ Do the drivers suck or are they just binary only?
        \_ Last I checked (~6 months), they didn't support rotation, and I
           couldn't find any indication that they planned to do so. That's
           the only thing I really care about, so I can't say if they suck

3/4     Does anybody have some code or know of a program that will take a
        network/mask and return the list of address in that CIDR block?
        e.g. "iplist 10.10.10.0/24" and return 10.10.10.0 ... 10.10.10.255
        [I have a way to do this, but it involves distributing a large
        amount of code, which is kind of a hassle. Looking for something
        lightweight and either standard or easdy to rpm/port/yum install.]
