5/3     Where on the web can I find the video of the total solar eclipse
        of March 29 taken from the International Space Station that was
        shown on TV back then?  I tried to google for it unsuccessfully.
        \_ Does this help:
        \_ Are you sure there's video? Here's the photos:
        \_ Can you confirm this video ever existed?  The closest I could
           find are two still images:
        \_ Found it: -marked
           \_ Wait a sec, from the photos one can deduce from the position of the
              station, earth, moon, and sun, that the eclipse wasn't viewable
              from the station.
            \_ The station didn't experience the eclipse, in the sense that
               they were not in the moon's shadow.  But they could see the
               moon's shadow on the earth from their vantage point in
               space.  A friend told me he saw a video taken of this from
               the ISS on the news, but maybe he was confused.  Maybe it
               was just an animation or something.  -op

7/20    For those who care btw, it looks like eclipse is now A Standard Tool
        at UCB ugrad cs, probably replaced emacs.  Furthermore, people get
        angry at seeing Makefiles, (since eclispe takes care of that).  I
        guess it's just a sign of the times.
        \_ The more people at my work use eclipse the less the code is
           managable in emacs.  I'm not sure which application's fault

2/28    I'm looking for a recommendation of a compiler/IDE to use to
        develop C/C++ code under Linux. In school, we used jove/gcc and
        I still use emacs/vi and gcc to this day. However, it is really
        lacking. Under Windows I tried Visual Studio and there were some
        really nice things about it, although it was so overwhelming that
        after 6 months of occasional use I still didn't really know what I

8/28    Did anyone watch the lunar eclipse last night?  I broke my $20
        binoculars while trying to focus to it.

           when you can see the sun?

6/13    I'm new to Eclipse as an IDE.  Is there any way to tell it to
        automatically reload a file that's been externally edited--without
        brining up a confirmation dialog?

8/23    I've been primarily developing Java in Eclipse, but I need to do a
        project with embedded C++, and I'd like a better IDE than Emacs.  MS
        Visual Studio is way too windows-centric.  All I really need is
        something that can do context-assists and autocompletes and flagging of
        illegal syntax.  Suggestions?

7/10    Any Eclipse experts here?  I was using 3.1 but had to reinstall and
        ended up with 3.2.  Formerly, if I would type something like
        "File foo;" a little error marker would offer to import
        for me.  If I used a function illegally it would offer to change it to
        a legal set of arguments.  This install of Eclipse doesn't do these
        nice things.  Any ideas how to get that behavior back?

5/18    I'm working with a developer who's used to C++/Java development
        environments that show you all the object relationships,
        inheritance, where functions are defined, where functions are
        used, etc.  We have a huge, painful application written in
        object oriented PHP that he's trying to figure out.  Do you
        guys know of and/or have you used any editors for PHP that have

5/2     any eclipse users on soda? anyone know where I can find something
        like an icon legend? i'm learning eclipse. it seems great, but
        there are 50,000 icons sprinkled everywhere that are hard to get
        accustomed to. thanks.
