1/22    What's the difference between a job and a career?
        \_ women have jobs, men have careers.
           \_ true statement but one that is sexist and should be
              kept in a private conversation
        \_ A job could be anything that pays mortgage or feed the mouth.
           A career is something that is longer term, most of the time,
           something you do out of choice. People who clean toilets have
           a job. People who have a chance to climb corporate ladders
           have a career.
        \_ Most people have only one career path in their whole lifetime.  Few
           people have two or more.  Most people have several jobs in their
           lifetime.  For example, a person can have jobs and careers like
           Job 1: software engineer
           Job 2: senior software engineer
           Job 3: flipping burgers at McDonald's because he got laid off at #2.
           Job 4: software architect
           Job 5: flipping burgers at McDonald's because now he likes flipping
           Job 6: supervisor at McDonald's
           Job 7: Owner of a McDonald's restaurant.
           That translates to
           Career 1: software engineering (Jobs 1-4)
           Career 2: fast food business (Jobs 5-7)
           Job 3 is not a career switch because he considered it a temporary

6/8     Newly wed husband and wife found from old picture that they have
        actually crossed path 30yrs ago:
        My question is how do stories like this find its way to news media?  Do
        people just go "hey something very interesting happens in our lives.
        Let's call up a news agency or two to tell the world about it."?
        \_ "Your video will begin after a word from our sponsors."

3/8     I have a mod_rewrite question that I think should be straight-
        forward but I think I'm not getting something.
        I have a virtual server with some root, say /home/user/public_html/
        and in there I have two subdirs, say /app1/ and /app2/
        and i want the following:
        http://mysite/app1   -->   /home/user/public_html/app1

8/18    Is it possible to truncate your path name in your prompt in tcsh?
        Tsch veterans REPRESENT!  I know this is how to do it in bash:
        # truncate path: returns $1 truncated to $2 chars, prefixed with ...
        truncate_path () {
                if [ -z "$1" -o -z "$2" ]

8/18    Hi again, new freebsd guy here again, in bash I was able to go
        LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/foo/lib ./runmyapp
        I managed to do this in tcsh by using setenv in a shell script
        that setenv's the lib path and then executes $1, just wondering
        if there was a way to do it in 1 line from the cmd line as in bash?
        Thanks, btw %2c or %3c worked.  Freebsd, tcsh and vi forever!
