             hot tea and corn soup.  And they are actually hot instead of warm.

5/19    Is it some cultural chinese thing to never take sick days?
        \_ Chinese New Year Day Off!
        \_ No.  When I was in primary school, my parents used to tell me to
           take a sick day when I overslept (i.e. when they overslept and
           wake me up in time.)
           didn't wake me up in time.)

4/02    We use Perforce at work for revision control. It seems to work okay.
        Lately, a lot of the newer developers are saying that Perforce
        sucks and we should switch to Mercurial or Git. I have done some
        searching on the Internet and some others have this opinion. Added
        advantage is that Mercurial and Git are free. However, there would
        be some work to switch for the sysadmins and the developers.

4/26    I see that soda has an ipv6 address but ipv6 traffic from this box
        doesn't actually work (ping6 <DEAD>ipv6.google.com<DEAD>, ping6 http://www.v6.facebook.com
        Is this expected to work?
        \_ Soda doesn't have a real IPv6 address.  The IPv6 addresses you see
           in ifconfig are just link-local addresses; any IPv6-capable machine
           will autogenerate these, whether or not it's connected to an IPv6

WiFi Wok 425px Not a new electronica group, but an ongoing project by New Zealander Stan Swan to make some seriously DIY WiFi repeaters out of what else? Ch inese cookware, among other kitchen and household gadgets. Turns out che ap cooking scoops make great 24GHz parabolic mesh dishes. We dont see too many WiFi extenders with bamboo handles in the States su rely a missed opportunity for the wireless adapter market. I used it as the original basis for a Line of Sight connection about 1500 yds since I couldn't get any internet connection in my wareho use loft. After verifying it worked with the $3 Goodwill spider skimmer, I found it worked better with a directv dish. Then I found out it worke d best of all by upgrading the linksys firmware and just jacking up the rx/tx power. Wingie You can find many of these cookware items in medium to large sized Chines e supermarkets in the US. I got a pasta-cooking-related thing for a buck from a Dollar Tree and it works w onders. jpg It's no April Fool -these USB cookware parabolas certainly cut the mustar d & are the best bang for buck going, especially if you've long cable ru ns needed for a good signal sweet spot. Although the author has a well k nown GSOH, part of the fun is seeing initially laughing sceptics say "Ga wd - it works" when they make one!
