         \_ yer completely wrong. She's definately NOT a CS major.

        \_ just because we have a 10 meg quota doesn't mean you should go

                \-and just because you have csua office hours doesnt mean you
                should boot someone off an xterminal.
                  \_ Yes it does. If you're willing to spend the effort, you
                     should be rewarded for it in at least that way.
                \_ but it is a lot of fun...
                \_ Now, Now kids.  Here's how I see it.  If there is
                somebody already on the machine then you should let
                them finish what they are doing.  If they are playing
                games then you can boot them.  If you are planning to
                log on and just mud or something, don't.  If whomever
                is using the Xterminal is working on the machine
                (ie: Me or Mehlhaff), then they have priority since
                those machines aren't really ready yet.  --SMurF

3/7     What's people's general opinion on puncture-proof inner tubes vs.
        putting sealant-type stuff inside a normal inner tube? - norby
        \_ what the hell are you talking about?
           \_ puncture-proof is a self-cancelling phrase.  And those things
              weigh a ton.  Pump up your tires more often and don't worry
              about it, is my advice. -tom
            \_Polyurethene (sp?) tubes aren't that heavy, neither are Latex
         tubes, both are puncture resistent. Also, try Kevlar belted
         tires....light and strong...
         \_ Normal tubes are polyurethane.  Latex tubes need to be
            pumped up every day.  Kevlar belted tires do practically
            nothing to reduce flats and significantly affect your
            ride.   -tom
                   \_ Normal tubes are butyl rubber.  ask someone who has
                      $pent many a $ on cheap regular ones.

11/11   I've received written and verbal complaints about the
        overuse of wall.  Please be more considerate with its use:
        people shouldn't have to "mesg n" when they want to receieve
        talk and write messages just beacause you are obnoxious.
        ^^^ I disagree strenuously.  I enjoy getting silly wall
            messages on soda -- it's part of the charm.  Anyone too
            stupid to do a "mesg n" is too stupid to pay attention
        ^^^ I agree with the disagreement, strenuously.  If people
            can't deal with soda's silliness, they should go use
            a MORE SERIOUS MACHINE, to do the work they want.  Party
            on dudes.  (Thanks, Garth)
        ^^^ I disagree with the adjective "strenuously" (I would use
            "arduously") but other than that, I agree with the agreement
            with the disagreement.
        ^^^ Yeah, me too.
        ^^^ I wrote the first comment.  I used the word "strenuously"
            because I formulated the idea during excremeditation.
            Hence, the disagreement was strenuous in every sense of
            the word.
        ^^^ I didn't say anything earlier because I disagreed with
            whomever's use of the word strenuously.  However, because
            it has now been stipulated that we are actually disagreeing
            arduously, I agree with the disagreement.  Wall Lives!
        ^^^ I think you really mean ardently.  webster it, dude.
        ^^^ I vehemently agree with the strenuous disagreement, even if
            it was only ardent (it is ardent - arduous means difficult)
        ^^^ So, we're all agreed?
        ^^^ I fervently meant "arduous" as an alternative to "strenuous"
            because it captures the same idea more elegantly.
            I am vehemently contentuous with the use of the modifier
            "ardently."  "arduous" means with great effort.
            "ardently" means passionately.
        ^^^ I most definitely agree with the first statement ... Are we
            all agreed?
        ^^^ Only if you really meant contentious, and not contentuous.
            Maybe I'm just a floccinauxinihilifilipicator.

        next Wednesday on nanotechnology at noon.  Not sure exactly where, I
        was in a hurry, but it's by K. Eric Drexler, a renown speaker on the
        subject.  I believe nanotechnology to have a large impact in our near
        future.  Come see an interesting and informative lecture!
        Flyers are all over Evans, just look for it.

4/1  |  For all the concerned people out there, PGP 2.2 has been
            |  installed on soda.  It's a public key cryptosystem.  You give
            |  everybody the public key and they can send you email, files,
            |  etc. in full security and then you decode with your secret key
            |  + passphrase.  It's supposed to be one of the safest systems.
