9/20    Why does everyone talk about Turing but  nobody talks much about

1/13    I am writing a commandline parser for a class and I could use some
        tips for algorithms to use. (The project is over and done so I am
        not cheating, but I am dissatisfied with my end result.) I STFW and
        didn't come up with too much I liked. I read the source for some
        shells like tcsh and that is *WAY* too complicated and relies on
        a lot of other code. I know that browsers and other apps have

10/24   20 year old Brit proves Wolfram's 2 state 3 color Turing machine
        is universal.
        \_ And Wolfram is still an ass.
           \_ Why do you hate cellular automata?

2/24    For those w/ a math interest KCSM (Channel 17/43.1) in the Bay
        Area is airing a biography of Paul Erdos this Wednesday, 28 Feb.
        \_ After the program, I dans@soda, will present a comprehensive
           critique here in the soda motd.
           \_ Really?  I mean, Paul Erdos rocks and all, but, if
              you're tuning in to the program, you already know that.

12/6    emarkp's little fit below is a good illustration of the "true random
        doesn't seem random" problem that afflicts shuffle-play implementations
        in MP3 and CD players.
        \_ Sigh.  When one value gets 50% of the hits in 200 trials, that's not
           uniform distribution, now matter how many names you want to call me.
