3/6     Is http://www.cygwin.org a real site or a hoax?  It looks different from
        http://www.cygwin.com and it doesn't mention the latter.  Thx.
        \_ It looks like a mistake -- http://cygwin.org (without the "www") works,
           but http://www.cygwin.org gives you http://sourceware.org instead.
        \_ I dunno why there are no links to Cygwin 1.7 on that site.
           try this: http://cygwin.com/setup-1.7.exe

9/19    "No, A Severed Finger Will Not Be Able to Access a Stolen iPhone 5S"
        http://mashable.com/2013/09/15/severed-finger-iphone-5s
        I'm sure the Apple QA department has tested extensively that a severed
        finger will not be able to access a stolen iPhone 5S.
        \_ It doesn't matter whether or not a severed finger can be used.  It

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

        there?   How is their quality compared to other libs you have used
        for other langs?  Thx.
        \_ I use Ruby for hobby stuff, etc.  I use libraries for system stuff
           (web access, process, etc.) but that's about it.  Perl libraries are

        good place that can custom build for you (SSD, large RAM, cheap video

10/24  What's an easy way to see if say column 3 of a file matches a list of
       expressions in a file? Basically I want to combine "grep -f <file>"
       to store the patterns and awk's $3 ~ /(AAA|BBB|CCC)/ ... I realize
       I can do this with "egrep -f " and use regexp instead of strings, but
       was wondering if there was some magic way to do this.

        my first two jobs we could tell the seniority of fellow engineers based
        on which email program they use at work, because everyone used what
