5/1     What's the difference between CS and Computer Engineering?

3/29    A friend wants a PC (no mac). She doesn't want Dell. Is there a
        good place that can custom build for you (SSD, large RAM, cheap video
        card--no game)?
        \_ As a side note: back in my Cal days more than two decades ago when
           having a 387SX made me the only person with floating-point hardware,
           most machines were custom built.

1/4     I want to test how my servers behave during a disk failure and
        a RAID reconstruction so I want to simulate a hardware failure.
        How can I do this in Linux without having to physically pull
        a drive? These disks are behind a RAID card and run Linux. -ausman
        \_ According to the Linux RAID wiki, you might be able to use mdadm
           to do this with something like the following:

11/27   CalMail has been down for a few days (hardware failure and database
        corruption -- sounds like fun!) and is starting to come back online.
        Looks like they're planning to outsource all campus mail to either
        Google Apps or Microsoft 365 as part of Operational Excellence.

9/13    Thanks to Jordan, our disk server is no longer virtualized. Our long
        nightmare of poor IO performance should hopefully be over. Prepare for
        another long nightmare of poor hardware reliability!

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,

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

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
