6/17    Just wondering how many dropouts still live around campus?
        \_ Me. Right on Shattuck. --toulouse
           \- do you plan to go back to school eventually?
           \_ why did you drop out?
              \_ No money, parents bankrupt, couldn't pay for school. Got a job
                 and have been supporting them (and myself) just barely ever
                 since. Thank $DEITY for relatively high software engineering
                 salaries. --toulouse
                 \_ I habitually thank all deities and pantheons that money
                    that would be going into teacher salaries and paramedics
                    and investment towards renewable energies goes instead
                    into putting pictures of hipsters on the web.
                    \_ Free market. People want iPads more than teachers.
                       \_ 1) There's no such thing as a free market.
                          2) It has been mathematically proven that rational
                             individual decisions can lead to sub-optimal
                             results.  -tom
                       \_ Oh Please, the US isn't a freemarket, most ppl
                          come to the US to flee a free market society, where
                          everything, guns, people, drugs, is for sale with
                          zero gov interference.  The problem is self interest
                          that is inherently unsustainable for the culture.
                          \_ But the Slogan "Free Market" is so short and
                             EZ 2 Chant.
                             \_ How's that Tea Party working out for you.
                             \_ Benevolent dictatorship, huh? Pass.
                                \_ People like you will be first up against
                                   the wall when the resources run out.
           \_ Why are you still hanging around?  Surely not for the commute.

7/2     If I download a software that has GNU GPL and create a search
        engine on top of it and the search engine profits (and I don't
        release the source code nor do I modify or redistribute it), is
        that an acceptable use of GNU GPL?
        \_ Yes.  Even the AGPL allows this if you don't modify the program.

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:
