9/24    Soda Mark V needs to find a new home; specifically anywhere but in the
        \_ If nobody has mailed you to claim it yet, just hit the
           drives with a hammer and leave it in the hallway.
        \_ Nail it to the ceiling and forget about it.
        \_ Drop it off of Evans.
        \_ The Berkeley public schools always need computers for programming
           and typing labs.  Getting anyone to take responsibility for it would
           be tough though.
        \_ What are its specs? might take it.

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
           lanauages have to be like that in order to work well?

2/13    Prototype based programming/delegation (not the pattern).  anyone
        use this at all in real world?  Does it really solve the problem of
        OOP brittleness?

2/24    Go Programming Language.  Anyone here use it?  It kind of
        reminds me of java-meets python, and well, that is fitting given it's
        a GOOG product.  What is so special about it?
        \_ as I understand it, it's a suitable OOP-y systems language with more
           structure than C, less complexity than C++, and less overhead than

2/4     random C programming/linker fu question.  If I have
        int main() { printf("%s is at this adddr %p\n", "strlen", strlen); }
        and soda's /proc/sys/kernel/randomize_va_space is 2 (eg; on)
        why is strlen (or any other libc fn) at the same address every time?
        \_ I don't pretend to actually know the right answer to this, but
           could it have something to do with shared libraries?

8/8     Trying to make a list of interesting features languages have
        touted as this whole PL field comes around, trying to see if they
        have basis in the culture of the time: feel free to add some/dispute
        1970 C, "portability"
        1980 C++, classes, oop, iterators, streams, functors, templates
             expert systems

        There are bold programmers, but no old programmers
        \_ This is true, mot ppl i knokw who are older seem to want to "get out
           of programming."  They have kids, they want to do other things.
           \_ There was an article about how programming isn't that rewarding
              as an end game to most normal (non psychologically troubled) folk

3/7     My sister is graduating soon with a decree in information management.
        She was orignally CS, but couldn't cut the math, so her GPA sucks.
        However, she has had a couple of internships and did fine.  She did
        desktop support at RockYou and is currently doing web programming
        at UC Santa Cruz, but they can't keep her on after graduation.
        Anyone got any jobs?  She wanted to be a network admin, but right now

        Old story from 2000 but goodie. PKWare/Zip Phil Katz's death.
        \_ Now that technology is mainstream, the culture seems to lack the
           kind of bright but socially maladapted kids like Katz and Reiser
           (not to mention rms and various others) who we knew in the late
           80s/early 90s.  Where are those kids now?  -tom

CSUA Alumni Location: CSUA Machine Room, 340 Soda Hall It was the dawn of the third decade of the CSUA, ten years after the XCF War. Its goal: to prevent another war by creating a place where students and alumni could work out their differences peacefully. It's a port of wall, /home away from /home for diplomats, hustlers, entrepeneurs, and wanderers. Files and programs stored in two million, five hundred thousand sectors of spinning metal, all alone in the machine room. It can be a dangerous place, but it's our last, best hope for peace. The name of the place is Soda Mark V Soda MkV Soda Mark V at the end of its career.
