1/26    Wozniak says the the Steve Jobs movie clip is historically inaccurate,
        that Jobs was not so much a visionaire that Jobs claimed to be, as Jobs
        was just looking to make a few quick bucks. Why should we trust
        Woz's words over Jobs'?
        \_ Seriously? Read both the Steve Jobs biography and Woz's autobiography.
           Nobody contests that Jobs was a scumbag. Also: the lounge in Soda Hall.

        Japan rules!
        \_ Fifteen years ago I worked there for seven months.  I miss Japan!
           (I'm Chinese immigrant.)  More facts:
           - Besides cold drinks, vending machines also carry hot drinks like
             hot tea and corn soup.  And they are actually hot instead of warm.

5/1     Osama bin Ladin is dead.
        \_ So is the CSUA.

5/27    Pharamcist convicted of first-degree murder for shooting at armed
        robberers:
        http://www.csua.org/u/tfk (news.yahoo.com)
        What the f**k!!??
        \_ Shooting the robber and leaving him on the floor unconscious was
           obviously self-defense.  Calmly returning to the store afterwards

9/21    are you guys really all using win7 in some way now?
        \_ Yes.  In my company, we have upgraded all our machines for
           development, QA and other office use (HR, Finance, Receptions, etc.)
           from WinXP to Win7 a few months ago.  Our products now primarily
           support Win7/Win2008 and secondarily support WinXP/Win2003.
           \_ Any weird gotchas support-wise?

8/3     VMWare + Windows XP + Validation question. I need to test stuff with
        Service Pack 3 installed. I have a valid key that I own (yeah yeah I
        actually *bought* a copy, please don't flame me for supporting evil
        M$). Is it possible to register the key once, and then duplicate it
        for testing purposes?  Will Windows or Microsoft detect copies and
        disable the rest the copies?

7/28    Does it make sense to defragment disks on VMWare? My 80GB disk
        on VMWare isn't really using 80GB, it just uses what it needs.
        Will defragment do anything to it?
        \_ If you want to speed up disk operation in your VM, it's best to
           defragment the disks in your VM, then defragment the disk on your
           host machine where the VM files are.

7/17    Should I get VMWare Fusion or Parallels 4? I don't want to use
        VirtualBox because it's kind of slow.
        \_ Yes

7/17    -rw-r--r--@
        What does the "at sign" mean? This is on Mac OS. VMWare disk file.
        \_ The file has metadata attributes
           \_ How do I add/delete attributes to files? What about
              -rw-r--r--+ <-- what is the "+" sign? Also how do you make
              tar preserve these attributes?

5/2     why would my php application chew up 20-30 percent of my CPU when
        run on a real machine, but will consitently take up 60-70 percent
        of CPU when run in a vmware vm ?
        \_ the real CPU has more capacity.
           \_ Yes, did you allocate all of your CPU to the VM? Maybe you only
              gave it one CPU or something like that.

12/18   Are any of you using any kind of scheme involving, e.g., running
        multiple copies of web browsers in virtual machines so that the
        copy you use for random web browsing is isolated from the copy you
        use for financial transactions? What other sorts of schemes like
        this are people using that aren't a total PITA? P.S. I am talking
        mainly about Windows; on Unixes you could always run stuff under
