10/4    Is there any way to build a web page which allows the user to select
        a group of files to the server?  Conventional html input file select
        only supports a single file.  I'd rather not have to create a ton of
        those.  I'm looking for a something that can take an array of files.
        \_ Nope.  You either have to build a Java app, allow .zip file uploads,
           or use a little DHTML to let users create new upload fields as they
           need them (or save the previous selection and reuse the single
           upload field).  --dbushong
        \_ No, file upload is still kind of a pain.  Some of the photo sites
           allow multi-file upload by using browser plugins, activex, etc.
           Search google for keywords: multiple file upload
           and you'll find various tricks using activex, java applets,
           javascript/dom.  Some solutions are free and some cost.  --peterl
        \_ It doesn't work for all applications, but WebDAV could theoretically
           be useful.  -tom

4/29    Why were C and Java designed to require "break;" statements for a
        "case" section to terminate rather than falling-through to the next
        section?  99% of the time poeple want a "case" section to terminate.
        In fact some compilers issue warning if there is no "break;" statement
        in a "case" section.  Why not just design the languages to have
        termination as the default behavior, and provide a "fallthru;"

3/5     Three emergency Java updates in a month. Why do I have a feeling

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?

8/29    There was once a CSUA web page which runs an SSH client for logging
        on to soda.  Does that page still exist?  Can someone remind me of the
        URL please?  Thx.
        \_ what do you mean? instruction on how to ssh into soda?
           \_ No I think he means the ssh applet, which, iirc, was an applet
              that implemented an ssh v1 client.  I think this page went away

4/16    Whoa, I just heard that MIT discontinued 6.001 (classic scheme)
        to 6.01. In fact, 6.00, 6.01 and 6.02 all use Python. What the
        hell? What has the world become? It's a sad sad day. SICP forever!
        \_ old story, they've ditched that shitty book and lang for a while.
        \_ I used to think scheme was cool, then I saw Ka Ping Yee's
           "Beautiful Code" class aka 61a in python, and converted.

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

        touted as this whole PL field comes around, trying to see if they

12/4    what do people have their JAVA_HOME's set to on soda?
        \_ don't. are you trying to get sun java? It is installed, but not
           the default.  check dpkg -l and dpkg -L
           \_ I'm trying to run maven to get scala/ working
              properly and it's complaining that JAVA_HOME is not set.

        Java is #1!!! Followed by C, PHP, C++, Visual Basic, Perl,
        C#, Python, Javascript, then finally Ruby. The good news is
        Pascal is going waaaay back up!
        \_ C is still more popular than C++?  I feel much better about myself

8/6     In C one can do "typedef int my_index_t;".  What's the equivalent in
        C#?  Thanks.
        \_ C#? Are you serious? Is this what the class of 2009 learn?
           \_ No.  I have to learn .NET code at work.  I am Class of '93.
           \_ python is what 2009 learns, see the motd thread about recent
              cal courses and languages

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

12/21   I was laid off and started filing for EDD for my weekly pay.
        I just got a job. Is there a form I need to file, or do I just
        stop filing out EDD to get my weekly pay? As a side note, how
        do they actually know I am working or not?
        \_ You just stop filing and they stop paying; you don't need to do
           anything else.  I don't know the internals of how they do things,

12/28   Happy holidays everyone.
        For some reason my work's ip address gets logged in /etc/hosts.deny and\
I cannot ssh in anymore from work
        (except from home where I can ssh in fine): anyone knows if this file is\
 auto-generated due to some event? Thanks

3/24    How are people transferring large files to one other person these days?
        When I need to send some videos to my parents, I upload them to
        my SpiderOak account, but they don't have anything like that,
        so I'm not sure how to get videos from them.  Does DropBox do this
        for free?

4/04    Is there a good way to diff 2 files that consist of columns of
        floating point numbers, such that it only tells me if there's a
        difference if the numbers on a given line differ by at least a given
        ratio?  Say, 1%?
        \_ Use Excel.

        something about /var/wall/ttys not existing.

7/2     When I do "ssh name@machine command", that does not show up
        on the last log. Where is that action logged?
        \_ Depends on accounting level. Might not be logged at all.
        \_ Enable logging on sshd itself in the system sshd_config file.
