2/26    I have dual citizenship. If I leave US and enter country Z, is
        there a way I can make the immigration booth "stamp" both passports
        (not necessarily stamp, but electronically record) such that both
        countries know that I left US for country Z. Then, when I depart
        country Z and head back to US, only provide the US passport? I'd
        like to do this so country Z thinks that I am permanently residing
        in it.
        \_ You are a citizen of Z? You can't travel on two passports.
           \_ you can't? I was hoping I could be officially registered
              in two places, for reasons related to benefits provided by
              country Z without having to live there for at least X number
              of months before applying for the benefits.
              \_ I don't care enough to bother to understand what you are
                 trying to do. However, how do you expect yo travel on
                 two passports? Do you think you will give customs both?
                 My dad is a dual citizen and he has to decide whether to
                 travel as a USA citizen visiting Z or as a Z citizen
                 returning. The answer is almost always to travel as a USA
                 citizen. Now, he has a Z passport so when traveling
                 \_ why?
                 abroad after that point he can travel as a Z citizen, but
                 it's not possible to enter a country with both. It does
                 depends on what country Z is, too. Some countries have
                 their shit together much more than others. (I assume one
                 country is USA.)
        \_ Maybe you enter Z with one passport, sneak out, then re-enter
           under another passport. Is this possible?
        \_ No country in the world is going to stamp two passports when
           you exit or enter. However, the US generally doesn't stamp
           passports when you leave. Not sure how, but maybe you can try
           to use that to your advantage.

2/14    what's the best way to convert old mail spool files such that i
        could load them up in thunderbird?  (or even better, import them
        directly to gmail?)  Thanks.  --WaitingForTheInevitable
        \_ You could use mutt or pine to transfer them to an imap server.
           There's also a tool called imapsync but it doesn't work very well.
           Or Thunderbird has an extension called ImportExportTool that
           can import mbox files directly.  -tom
        \_ <DEAD>mail.csua.berkeley.edu<DEAD> over IMAP w/ SSL. Our cert might not validate
           though. --toulouse

        I'm all for keeping compliance as it is the law, but why are
        some people against background check? Why would it be
        racist, esp. if you do the check to every single employee?

8/26    Micro$oft is racist!!!
        Seriously, is it any different from replacing the black actor with a
        white actor and then re-taking a real photo to suit a foreign market?
        Would it cause the same outcry if, say, M$ Photoshop'ed ... I mean
        photo-edited ... the Asian man and the white woman with two blacks for
        the South Africa market?
        \_ Yes, it's quite different from taking two different photos.
           Especially with that awful clone job in the background. -tom
        \_ I'm surprised they left the asian guy in there.  Many Poles
           who live in Poland are extremely racist.
           \_ Agreed. They should have Photoshopped in a pure white
              blonde hair blue eyed Ayran.

4/22    Is there some international law or agreement that says whenever person
        A performs an act on person B, and person B is a citizeon of country X,
        and the act violates some law in country X, and the act is performed
        outside of country X, the incident still falls under country X's
        jurisdiction?  Thx.
        \_ Got got with underage thai hookers, hmm?
           \_ No, I'm thinking about the pirates.
           \_ No, I'm thinking about the pirates.  -- OP
              \_ Pirates are special under international law.
                 \_ I see.  -- OP
                 \_ mostly because the piracy is in international waters
        \_ No, though some countries claim jurisdiction (and some do not).

3/1     What do you if your financial advisor has control of your stock and
        retirement portfolio, and has been out of the country for a couple
        months and has not been responding to your e-mails?  Is there a law
        which requires them to respond within two business days ...?  What
        would you do in this situation?
        \_ Call his boss? I assume you are with some kind of reputable
           large company, right? Call the office he works out of and ask
           to speak to the supervisor.
           \_ tnx
