1/22    After looking through some old papers, there's some interesting
        history. Who is Trevor Buckingham? paolo/pollux's trevor_buckingham.txt
        is no longer accessible, and I'm curious. --t
        \_ tjb was a guy who was clearly a paranoid schizophrenic.  He did
           stuff like send mail to the President about how he was being
           persecuted.  Some people thought it was amusing, but really the
           guy was just sick.  -tom
           \_ he was definitely sick.  But goddamn it was funny.
                Highly quotable.
                At one point we had a giant archive of his ravings.
                I WILL FRAME MYSELF!!!   --brain
                \_ agreed. found some old stuff through DejaNews:
                \_ here's a taste of his sweet sickness: you can still find
                   all kinds of his self-aggrandizing hyperbole all over the
                   web.  This one seems to be on a prime rib ratings site...
                \_ And here he started his own University:
           \_ And a Playmate was just dying to get in his pants, but he
              didn't want any of that action, no sir.
                \_ "I denied her sex!"
              \_ She was after his precious bodily fluids.
           \_ Just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to
              get you. tjb clearly was persecuted, emailing the President
              to complain about it was not the right response.
              \_ Get off my dick. -tjb

11/9    sameer should join the army. aaron should join the army.
        tjb should join the army.
        \_ sameer already joined THE MARINES.  aaron is off visiting places
           that poorer people can't afford to.  dunno what happened to tjb.
           \_ I challenge you the concept of "expensive." Silicon Valley
              is already pretty expensive.
              \_ SV doesn't cost $2000/night.
           \_ Is Aaron doing an Asian Sex Tour, or something?
        \_ Aaron Smith does not want to fight. Aaron Smith wants Asian pussy.
        \_ Does anyone know where to find the tjb archives online?  I was
           looking for them recently, to no avail.  -niloc
           \_ Maybe someone felt bad about archiving the ranting of a guy
              who was actually insane.

              Biggs, who tjb once refused sex, on the front door of that site.

11/9    Ahh tjb. Someone referenced him below. Those were good times! Does
        anyone have a "best of tjb" list anywhere? It's sad to see how great
        artists like tjb and kinney have left the motd.
        \_ Well apparently this amckee character is of the tjb flavor ...
           i dunno, just learning about him now in the below thread
           \_ tjb denied a Playboy bunny sex.  amckee was merely a Critical
              Intel Asset.  Sex outranks Intel, on motd anyway.
              \_ True -- and tjb spammed csua with his long sociapathic
                 megalomaniacal rants.  Maybe if we're nice, we can get
                 geordan to republish the classic tjb vs. rosario email.  -mice
                 \_ True.  But amckee moderated csua so dissent against
                    him could not be publicly aired.  As entertaining as
                    the tjb mails were, I think amckee wins for iron-fisted
                    \_ tjb was never a member of csua, but managed to cause
                       quite a row not only within our organization, but
                       outside of it as well.  He's been a very very colorful
                    \_ When did amckee moderate dissent?  I saw pleanty of
                       dissent, and not a bit of moderation.
                       \_ amckee turned on moderation for the csua mailing
                          list so most csua members could not see discussion
                          against his politburo's policy.   I think I said
                          that already. -pp
                          \_ I agree.  This was pretty blatant.
                             The Politburo member(s) who did this might tell
                             themselves they're sparing the general membership
                             from trolls, and this might partially be true, but
                             part of it was also to shield themselves from
                             genuine criticism.
                 \_ Interested parties may contact me directly.  Or you can
                    just look for it.  It's hiding here on soda somewhere.
           \_ tjb wins.  he is much brighter, and he dares to take on
              \_ But amckee was a Critical Intel Asset!
        \_ Get off my dick! -tjb
                       character.  Honestly, this whole motd situation has
                       been so blown out of proportion in terms of its
                       importance and relevance, it's hard to take it all
        \_ I always felt tjb was more sad than funny, but that might be
           because my brother is schizophrenic.  That's the way he talks
           when he's off his meds.  -tom

1/31    After hearing a rumor about a CS student posting angry messages to
        the course newsgroups, a little googling turned up the name
        "Trevor James Buckingham", including an elusive reference to
        TrevorBuckingham.txt.  Does anyone have a copy of this document,
        or other Buckingham lore? -jenk
        \_ TJB was actually mentally ill at the time.  That makes it
           a lot less funny if you ask me.  --PeterM
           \_ At the time?  I'm pretty sure the dude is mentally ill
              period.  I think the particular strength of his wackiness
              may have been brought on by stress and/or drug use.
        \_ Perhaps an entry in the CSUA encyclopedia is appropriate.
           \_ whoah! need major updates.
        \_ ah, tjb, that brings back memories.
        \_ AH HAHAHAHAHA... Oh man, I actually used to have a copy of the
           write-up somebody did about tjb, but sadly I don't know where it is
           at the moment.
           \_ You mean this?  /csua/tmp/tjb-reply.txt
              IIRC, this was after tjb got hit with a spam or something, and
              yelled at CSUA, only to have csua shrug him off -- then he sent
              that long ass rant to a csua-wide mailing list (I might be off
              on the details -- someone correct me if I am).
              Many thanks for Mr. Rosariet for his cruel wit   >:) .   -mice
              \_ That is but a brief moment in the complete and unabridged
                 saga of TJB. -dans
        \_ Yeah, so this actually happened twice, once in 61B when Clancy was
           teaching, and the following semester in 61C when Culler was
           teaching.  I was actually the one who compiled it, but since I was
           TA'ing 61C at the time I wasn't able to post it.  Fortunately,
           someone else did.  I'm trying to dig up a copy.  You might also
           consider tracking down the archives for ucb.class.cs61b and
           ucb.class.cs61c thought, for the life of me, I can't recall exactly
           which semesters that was. -dans
           \_ All hail the mighty internet archive:
              Okay, so there are actually a fair number of holes, but some
              archive is better than none. -dans
        \_ ilyas VS. tjb, FIGHT!!!
           \_ Criple fight! Criple Fight!
        \_ whatever happened to tjb?  did he ever come back to ucb after
           northwester (?)?
        \_ There's an archive dedicated for tjb:
        \_ Don't forget jsampson actually partnered with TJB.

5/29    *yawn* motd is boring. Whatever happened to kinney, tjb, and other
        trollers that make motd more interesting?
        \_ tjb was never a troller.  I don't think he ever had a csua account
           thank god.
                \_ who is tjb?

1/3     I need an update on tjb.  (yes I'm bored).  what's the fucker
        up to these days.  I miss the contraversy and his emails.
        \_ He got so tormented by all the abuse the csua heaped upon
           him, he decided to kill himself. I hope you are proud of yourself.
           \_ What did his suicide note say?  How did he off himself?
              What did his obituary say?  Come on, being dead is no
              excuse for not entertaining me.
        \_ Actually, I'm curious as well, I found this page:
           His post have gone completely insane.  (even moreso than
           before) what's been going on?
        \_ Yay!  We love making fun of schizophrenics!

           against the government's "secret weapon".  and you don't seem to

                 Note that fingering still works.

                    \_ which is utter bullshit, but that's okay. --scotsman
                    \_ It's also utter bullshit that a link on the CSUA web
                       page to a public forum means that the CSUA officers
                       "take responsibility" for that forum.  -tom

                          \_ ASUC can make you responsible to them but you are
                             not legally responsible under the law.  Meaning
                             ASUC can cut CSUA funds but you can't be charged,
                             sued, arrested or whatever for it.  Either way,
                             you, as an officer, are not personally liable.

                             say different, I'd tell him to go talk to his
                             lawyer because it aint so.

              damn smart.  He'll either turn out to be the next Steve Jobs if
              he cleans up, or Ted Kazinski.  Has anybody else gotten this
              vibe about him?
              \_ He's smarter than the average UCB student, but far from
                 brilliant, and too socially incompetent to get anywhere in
                 the real world (other than perhaps in narcotics trade...)

4/16    Can anybody explain the things that differentiate ambiance,
        trance, jungle, trip-hop, big-beat, happy-[ trance | ambiance | ] etc?
        \_ Search on the web for samples and listen to them.  Word descriptions
           hardly tell you anything.  Groovetech, for example, archives a
           lot of their live shows, so you can also find good local DJs that
           Techno: 150-160 BPM no spoken samples, washing-machine-like
                sound, tunderous beat, little melody, if at all
           way.  Here's my list of "typical" albums for each genre:
           ambience -- Aphex Twin "selected works"
           trance -- Paul van Dyke "Tranceport"
           Drum & Bass -- Roni Size "Reprazent" (jungle is d&b x 2)
           Ambient: no beats, barely intrudes upon your consciousness
           \_ Does it have anything at all to do with BPM?
           trip-hop -- Portishead "Dummy" or any Massive Attack
           big beat -- Chemical Brothers ? "Dig Your Own Hole"
        \_ music genres are sloppy, inexact things to try to convey a
           general idea. relax and listen. --aaron
        \_ House: 130-140 BPM, bass drums, high-hat, divas, lots of sex
           Techno: no spoken samples, washing-machine-like sound, tunderous
                beat, little melody, if at all
           Trance: beats, melody, emotionally rich. Became popular much later
                than house or techno, ~1995
           Breaks: based on a break-beat, sounds like house in other ways
           Jungle: deep, dark breaks with lots of bass

2/2     So just wondering if anyone has ever actually met a tjb style moron
        at work (industry, academia, anywhere).  Do these sorts of fools ever
        really get hired anywhere that does personal interviews?  I've been
        working for 7+ years at various places and have yet to meet anyone
        like that who survived a first round interview no matter how good
        their resume looked to HR.
        \_ In response to everything below, I was really wondering about
           getting past the first personal interview, not the reference
           check.  I'd give the guy a huge thumbs down in the first 5 minutes.
           Reference checks are bullshit for numerous reasons. -original poster
        \_ Yes.
          \_ while I haven't met anyone like that in a professional environment
             I can't believe they'd have any trouble gettin a job.  The job
             market right now is soo worker-starved that just about any chump
             can get a job.  Sure they might have to only choose between 3 or
             4 offers after a week or two of searching, but they'll still
             get them.
             \_ Silicon Valley is a very small place.  People talk.  If you
                have a bad reputation, word gets around fast.  My former boss
                was one such person.  He has had 6-7 jobs in the last two
                years.  He is having to go to a different industry, that's
                how fast word gets around.  Remember one thing:  don't burn
                your bridges; leave on good terms.
                \_ Please.  Silicon Valley is a *huge* place -- are you trying
                   to assert that the multi-billion-dollar complex of software
                   and hardware companies in the Valley somehow consitute an
                   intimate little "everybody knows everybody" kaffesklatch?
                   Your boss isn't getting rehired because he has obvious
                   resume problems (even if he wasn't obviously defective,
                   would you hire someone who's had 6 jobs in 2 years if you
                   were looking for a long-termer?), not because the word's
                   gone out through the grapevine.  Some references may even
                   candy-coat a tjb-style fuckup, because they don't want to
                   get sued for saying something defaming, or because they're
                   the idiot's current co-workers and they want to get rid of
                   him.  And even if your name is mud in Silicon Valley, the
                   industry doesn't stop once you leave the Bay Area; just
                   move to somewhere new.
                   \_ You're on the shitlist, too -- nobody who's *anybody*
                      is talking to you!  (Somebody told me that yesterday.)
                      That's how come you don't know the way it really is.
                   \_ This is funny.  You obviously haven't worked here
                      long here.  By "going to a different industry" I mean
                      going from say network hardware to semiconductor.  Yeah
                      shitty people can always get jobs, they just won't get
                      jobs with good people who has been around and keep a
                      very long shitlist.  I've been for 4 years and
                      I already have a list of people in my mind that I want
                      to avoid like a plague.
                      \_  Just off the top of my head, Andy Bechtolsheim and
                          Dave Ditzel.  Yep, famously obnoxious and annoying
                          people must have trouble getting hired in the Valley.
                          The answer is, if you are bright enough, you will
                          get the job, no matter how evil you are.  Sometimes
                          you have to be pretty f*cking bright though.
                      \_ I think that you're confusing reality with your own
                         megalomaniac visions: "Ha ha!  When *I* am the one
                         in control, *he'll* never work in *this* town again!
