11/7    I'm graduating in May.  Has ee122 improved at all?  I don't want
        to waste my time.
        \_ No. It sucks. Don't waste your time. Take something more useful,
           like underwater basket weaving. At least you might get a good
           prof and perhaps your GSI will have clue.
        \_ It is more dependent on the professor teaching it than other classes.
           The last EE 122 numbers for Walrand are not encouraging. -mgoodman
           \_ Walrand's book was the most ridiculously priced POS textbook I
              bought at Berkeley.  God, taking EE122 was a mistake.
        \_ So it seems unanimous that this class is a waste of time...
           So what is another good way to learn this material? Is there a
           really good book on the subject?
           \_ TCP/IP Illustrated, by Stevens.  -- misha.
              \_ thanks for the suggestion... I highly doubt that this is
                 legal, but the full text of the first volume of this book
                 appears to be online for all those interested:
        \_ the only time it was good was when kevin fall taught it.
           but I think too many students bitched and moaned about how
           unfair it was that they had to do real coding projects with
           real protocols when they expected an easy handful of units
           that it has reverted back to lameness again
           \_ The class sucked with Kevin Fall. Yes, the project was cool,
              but he was the single worst prof that I had at Berkeley. Yes,
              worse than even Smith (!). Fall didn't really seem to care about
              the students, spoke in a monotone, had uninteresting homeworks
                            \_ Yeah, at least when Walrand teaches, you get to
                               be amused by his fruity accent!
              and tests, bad TAs, etc. The project was good, but not enough
              to redeem the class.

 11/6  Mathworld is back!!
       \_ be that as it may, I will *never* buy a CRC product ever again.
          \_ Oh, there's no shame in never buying a CRC product again.
             Did you read the terms of the settlement they agreed to
             so they could get the site back up?  Basically, they're paying
             CRC off a lump sum, paying them for estimated future losses
             on an ongoing basis, agreeing that CRC has a copyright on their
             material, and guaranteeing CRC the rights to future material.
             Personally, I wish the site was still down and being fought for
             in court.

              I end up having to flush more often to prevent clogging, which

        There seems to be this catch-22 thing going on where you need an ASN

        space.  Problem is, we probably can't request address space from ARIN
        because we're not likely to use a /20, which is the smallest space
        they'll issue. -dans
        \_ which begs the question of why you want an ASN?   You should be able
            to say 'we want to multihome with BGP, we need an ASN' to the arin

           \_ Apologies if I'm being dense here.  My routing fu is weak.
              From the ASN Request Template:

              b) Multi-homed Site

                 exactly how you are connected to the Internet to include the
                 following information:
                 i)  Exterior gateway protocol to be used
                 ii) The IP network addresses that will make up your AS

9/23    Anyone know how to count the nubmer of possible interleavings
        of two sets of N objects?
        \_ if by interleaving, you mean placing them in a line in any
           order, then the answer is easy it's (N+M)!
           if you mean elements of set 1 have to be adjacent to elements
           of set 2, then the answer is also easy: N!M!2. i think. -ali
           \_ Ok, I guess that was a bad statement of the problem. I think
              the best example of what I'm trying to say is: take 4 fingers
              on each hand; interleave them in all possible ways preserving
              the order on each hand but nothing else.
              \_ C(2N,N) (i.e. ((2N)!)/(N!^2)). -alexf

9/22    A CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll taken a few days after the attacks
        showed that Americans were supporting special measures intended for
        those of Arab descent. In the survey, 58 percent backed more intensive
        security checks for Arabs, including those who are United States
        citizens, compared with other travelers; 49 percent favored special
        identification cards for such people, and 32 percent backed "special
        surveillance" for them.
        \_ I love polls.  Here's your poll stated differently, "More than
           two thirds of Americans are opposed to any sort of 'special
           surveillance' for Arab-Americans, more than half were opposed to
           ID cards, and a near majority were opposed to any sort of security
           checks for those of Arab descent".  Polls are garbage.  Most are
           "push polls" with leading questions and no right answer which allow
           the poll taker to make whatever they want of the answers.  Ever been
           polled?  I have.  It was 20 minutes long and they could have had me
           saying *anything*.  "100% of csua members polled are in favor of

              on, sees her for her faults; makes  a move, and if she says

9/20    "If someone were to stand up,brandish something such as a plastic
        knife and say 'This is a hijacking' or words to that effect here
        is what you should do: Every one of you should stand up and
        immediately throw things at that person - pillows, books,
        magazines, eyeglasses, shoes -anything that will throw him off
        balance and distract his attention. If he has a confederate or
        two, do the same with them. Most important: get a blanket over
        him, then wrestle him to floor and keep him there. We'll land the
        plane at the nearest airport and the authorities will take it
        from there." "Remember, there will be one of him and maybe a few
