12/29   Anybody tried hacking amazon's gift certificate system?   they send
        these out to all of their customers, I'm wondering if there's a way
        to crack their code.   -pissed at amazon
        \_ at least they honor they gift certifcates.  http://buy.com wouldn't
           accept their own gift certificates, so i had to shop elsewhere
        \_ Go away, crybaby.  Shop elsewhere.
        \_ so if you shopped at a brick-and-mortar store and had an unpleasant
           experience, you'd condone stealing from them?  or trying to figure
           out a way to break into their cash registers?  or maybe forging
           paper gift certificates?  wtf?  if you don't like them, don't buy
           from them.
                \_ what's really pathetic is that his "bad experience" is that
                   his order got screwed up (probably by him) and amazon
                   "only" gave him a $10 credit for it.  -tom

12/20   Do tulip or iris bulbs last more than one season?  I bought a bunch
        of bulbs and I'm planting them.  I'm wondering if I'll have do to
        it over again next year because they will all die.  Thanks.
        \_ tulips don't naturalize in the Bay Area, it doesn't get cold
           enough.  Irises might.  Daffodils do.  If you want, you can dig
           up your tulip bulbs and put them in the refrigerator for a month
           and re-plant them.  -tom
           \_ tom is right about tulips -- they require a deep freeze
                       \_ axiom 2?
              to bloom (around here, one has to refrigerate them for 6-8
              weeks before planting).  they can last another season around
              here if you let the tulips bloom, and then wait until their
              leaves wither after their blooming period (this is when nutrients
              store up in the bulb and is valuable).  Then, you dig them
              up and store them in a cool, dry, dark place until fall, when
              you once again, refrigerate/chill them, and start over.  You
              don't, fortunately, have to do this with irises, which do
              naturalize quite nicely in the Bay Area (but every couple of
              years, irises prefer some "thinning out" -- otherwise they
              don't rebloom very well).  If you want bulbs
              that naturalize well, I second tom's recommendation of daffodils,
              and I add a recommendation for narcissus (paperwhites), which
              do not require a deep freeze, are low maintenance, and
              bloom readily throughout the winter months (mine are blooming
              right now, and there are more of them than last year).  --chris

12/20   Any *runtime* reason why include java.stuff.here may be better than
        include java.stuff.* ???
        \_ None.  The bytecode is the same.  It's just a matter of good style.
        \_ the first way limits the number of things that are available in
           the namespace to just the contents of java.stuff.here, some people
           like this better since it force the programmer to understand the
           effect of imports. In the old days importing a single file was
           slightly faster than importing all of the entries in a directory,
           so some old timers stick with method 1.

12/4    Work kind of sucks.  In fact, it seems like most of the work
        people do is of no long term significance.  Why can't we

        \_ Walden.  Been there.  Done that.
        \_ Because most people need to pay rent/mortgage, eat, etc.
           \_ If nobody had to work, the few necessary things like
              food and shelter could easily be taken care of.
        \_ because idle hands are the devil's work. Eg: idle people
           become drug dealers.
           \_ Just like idle CPUs.

        Are passed to nightmare by the laws of Moore,
        And what machine, its hour come round at last,
        Slouches towards 340 to be born?

11/13   When I was in grade school, one year a new kid from Florida joined
        our class.  The only thing I remember about him is that he was taught
        that pi = 3.  This was 5th or 6th grade.  -N'04!
        \_ Actually, many physicists use 3 for pi and 10 for g when doing
           quick calculations.  For the most part, calculations are
           considered legit if they're within an order of magnitude.
           \_ the most severe case of this is theoretical astrophysics. usually
              they let pi, the speed of light, planks constant and a slew of
              other constants be one so they can just focus on the *form*
              of the equations.  it all depends on what you're trying to do.
              i'd much rather have someone use 3 or 3.1 and know why that's
              ok in a certain situation than use 3.141592653589793238 for
              finding the area of a circular birthday cake ten inches across
              and not understand why that's pointless. of course this has
              nothing to do with the above post, but i think it's an
              important issue appropos of the proliferation of calculators
              in classrooms today.
              \_ speed of light = 1, okay, that just involves changing your
                 measurement units.  But pi = 1?  So it mever causes problem
                 when the circumference of a circle is as long as its diameter?
                 \_ Usually, they don't let p or h (h bar) or some of the other
                    constants equal 1, they just lump them together as a constant
                    factor. The only value I've seen set to one is c. ----ranga
                \_ I don't think they were calculating stellar distances or
                   looking for the form of the equation in my former classmate's
                   Florida 4th grade classroom.

11/6    Wedding gift ideas under $200. Unique but not weird. Help?
        \_ Race of the couple? White? Asian? Mixed? Whitewashed Asian?
                \_ White, East Coastian
                      \_ uh-oh, picky white people. NG.
                      \_ Is that New Englander, New Yorker, Mid-Atlantic
                         or what?
        \_ if they have a registry, just look at the registry.
           (yes, it is not unique, but at least they get what they asked for)
        \_ The most annoying gifts are the "unique but not weird" gifts.
           Why would you do this?
           \_ I agree.  Just buy something off their registry.
              You're helping the newlywed couple to start off their lives
              with some gifts of necessity, not some gift that may amuse
                \_ The registry is really only for people who don't know the
                   couple well.  If you're close, you should buy them
                   something real.  -tom
                   \_ though it helps to keep the couple from receving three
                      KitchenAid Mixers. --Jon
        \_ Go to Gump's.  Or get them a gift certificate to a day spa.
                \_ Thanks. This seems to have what I was after.
                   \_ you're welcome. i have had some good luck there
                      finding unusual but tasteful gifts. --chris
        \_ Cash, the Asian way. Asians HATE gifts, they know gifts are cheap
           (you know, vase, glassware, etc)
                \- by "asian" do you mean chinese/oriental? indians prefer
                gold. --psb
                    \_ Speak for yourself. Indians prefer cash, gold is
                       not sufficiently convertible.
                   \_ oriental is not PC when referring to people. It's just
                      as bad as using Asian. (South)East Asian is more proper.
                   \_ Yes, give GOLD for their wedding.
                   \_ If Asian, you must give 18K gold, otherwise it's
                      just as bad.
                      \_ 18K gold will get you spit on. 22K or higher
                         \_ 22K weights a tons and are two soft.
                            \_ 18K is to impure to use as a convertible
                               currency in most asian countries, which
                               is why 22K or higher is prefered.

11/1    I need to dig a square hole around 3 feet deep and 4 feet on the side.
        (This is for planting a big tree).  Anybody know of a tool besides
        shovel and pick axe to do this?  I'm looking to rent something
        manual or motor-powered.  Thanks.

                 he says he does.  He's going to fill it back in anyway,
                 unless his goal is to have a dead tree.

10/25   Dice, lice alt.sex.* is over-run with nothing but ads.
        i.e. all the "job" postings are really just recruiters.
        Where to go these days to look at real tech. jobs?
        (or at least a place that allows you to filter out
        recruiters/given posters)
        \_ http://craigslist.org...and of the "big" resume posting boards,
           only http://hotjobs.com prohibits "3rd party recruiters" or "agencies"
           to post jobs or search resumes.  --chris (who is a recruiter)
                \_ don't forget http://guru.com, the site that will hopefully
                        reduce the number of hapless recruiters. I've used
                        both craig's list and http://guru.com and have gotten
                        plenty of mileage out of both.

        \_ Recruiters aren't that bad if you handle them like sharks...
           I've gotten some pretty cool jobs recently 'cause I've violated
           my "no recruiters" rule.  Give it a shot, just don't waste too
           much of your time or expect them to lay their cards on the table.
