4/3     Anyone have any ideas on where to get a MIPS parser?  I need one
        for a class project, but it's not the point of the project, so there's
        no problem with using a pre-existing library.  I haven't found one
        though.  It seems simple enough that I could just get away with
        python's split(). (Language is also irrelevant, so I was going to go
        with python or ruby, but anything is fine.)

2/5     Is CS 162 considered one of the more difficult UCB CS courses? I
        remember everyone being afraid of CS 150.
        \_ In the old days, 150 was a pain in the butt because of breadboards.
           One can easily spend 1/2 a day only to realize a wire is
           missing or popped off during transport. The fact that you gotta
           wire everything based on TTL/CMOS chips and having to go through
           cookbooks, makes it a total pain and error prone. Nowadays,
           CS150 is done mostly via Xilinx tools. You use some tool to
           wire components, then let the compiler route, then program
           your FPGA, and voila! Well, it's not THAT simple, but at least
           much more pleasant than breadboards. So, yes 150 used to be the
           project everyone feared. Nowadays, 162 is THE feared project
           as well as 164.
           as well as 164.      -TA who taught during the breadboard
                                 to new Xilinx tools transition during the
                                 mid-90s when the tools really sucked back
                                 then but has improved a lot since then.
           \_ Wow you guys are wimps these days. Esp. if you fear 164.
              Unless things have changed dramatically in the last say,
              5 years, which I doubt.
        \_ It's "more difficult" in the sense that the project is more work
           than the typical CS class. Same with 150, though projects there
           probably are even more work than 162, esp. since the groups are
        \_ 162 was a lot of work, but it seemed to flow together logically.
           It wasn't that hard, but it was time consuming.  For some people
           in my class it was pretty obvious they never "got" it, but really
           those people should have taken it as a sign that they needed a
           new major.
        \_ From my ancient experience (15 yrs ago) CS 150 was much more
           difficult than any other CS class by a LOT.
           \_ Difficult because it was TIME CONSUMING. Not as theoretically
              difficult as theory or math, for example. Who taught 150
              15 years ago?
                \_ Difficult both by the subject matter and the insane
                   amount of time you had to invest
        \_ Wow, I remember it as 160.  The projects were big, especially if
           your group bailed on you.  However, when I took the class, we used
           NACHOS, not BSD.

1/10    I'm looking for a used hybrid/road bike for my sister. $100-150 price
        range. I'm going to take her to a couple of local shops, but is CL
        the best place to buy a bike? Any other recommedations? --abe
        \_ Can you get a decent bike for that price?
        \_ At a shop you aren't going to get a bike worth getting at
           that price.  On craigslist you can, but you will have to deal
           with a lot of idiots who think some ancient beater is worth $150.
        \_ I got a used Specialized Crossroads for $25 at a garage sale, that
           I spent another $90 on new tires and a tune-up. It works fine,
           and I ride it back and forth to work most days, but parts of
           it are pretty rusty. -ausman

12/30   Of the current EE/CS curriculum, what percentage of it is still
        taught using *nix instead of Windows? I'm in the ASIC design
        industry and everytime we get new college grads, we have to
        spend some time teaching them some pretty basic Unix stuff.
        It's, frankly, kind of annoying when we're teaching them that
        stuff and not more important things.
        \_ For ASIC design in particular, you're screwed. 150 and 152 are both
           done solely in Winders. As for the rest of the EECS curriculum,
           there's a good percentage that's Java, 188 is moving to Python, EE20
           and all the Matlab stuff is on Winders machines, 184 is OS and
           lanugage agnostic -- only EE122 have I seen recently as being
           quote-unquote fully *NIX-oriented.
           The long or the short of it is, I made it through the lower divs
           without expanding my *NIX knowledge, and sitting inside a Winders
           box. It was the CSUA and some of my pet projects in the dorms
           (Linux-box server/NAT) that taught me anything. I think it's
           certainly possible for a good percentage of kids these days to get
           by without *actually* learning *NIX. Which is a damn shame.
           As an aside -- the side of the CSUA soda-hozers don't see, we're
           plotting for something tenatively named "Bear-bones" CS -- aka a
           crash course in the good life (Unix, shells, emacs/vi, maybe a
           little scripting) at the start of this semester --michener
