3/18    Can someone remind me what is required to prevent programs like
        less, for example, from sending their output to a "separate" screen
        that gets erased when the program is killed, as opposed to just on
        the normal stdout terminal like, for example, ls? Thanks.
        \_ you must not have taken e190 yet.
           \_ ugh... typos corrected. I assume that's what you were talking
              about?  ...and by the way, I'm L&S CS.
              \_ You passed Subject A?
                 \_ I passed out of it with my awesome AP English score.
                    boo-ya, bee-otch.
                    \_ Clearly the difficulty of the AP exam has declined in
                       recent years, "boo-ya, bee-otch".

                          \_ Like I said.  "... in recent years".  Anything
                             from after the time they changed all the tests and
                             dumbed everything down so you could still get a
                             high score to preserve your precious self-esteem

                             \_ I was joking and you're a complete dweeb.
        \_ Your best bet is less -X, although YMMV depending on your terminal's
           termcap entry's quirks. -alexf

3/18    I'm looking for research done on symmetric multiprocessing.
        Particularly as it applies to networking.  Anybody know if anything
                                      \_ Bingo!
        has been done in this area?  Thanks.
        \_ why smp?  is there some particular characteristic of networking
           that makes smp more applicable than say asymmetric mp or some
           kind of message passing distributed processing?  or did you just
           slap two buzz words together randomly?
           \_ I vote for random buzzword slapping.  Possibly for a report to
              some PHB.

3/13    I'm writing a program called diff_tex which takes 2 tex files,
        OLD and NEW, and produces a version of NEW with changes
        highlighted in some manner.  At first I tried putting
        \begin{bf} and \end{bf} enclosing lines where changes had
        occured but this can cause problems inside equation, align,
        or tabbing environments.  Does anyone know of a way to highlight
        something (bold, italics, red, whatever) such that it will work
        in most latex environments?  Thanks. -emin
           \- i am not sure what you are setting out to accomplish but i am
              not sure it is feasible. i mean tex can be a full blown
              language and just looking at text diff probably wont cut it.
              e.g. if macro are redefined etc. --psb
        \_ put boxes around it?
           \_ Do you mean with \fbox?  The \fbox command seems even less
              robust than other things like \begin{bf} ... \end{bf}.
              Are there tricks for making \fbox robust?  Thanks. -emin
        \_ I think green boxes with reddish brown flowers on a bed of darker
           green grass or maybe clovers....
           \_ We started out with boxes but they're too much work. We've settled
              on good old fashioned, herbicide-sucking turf.
           \_ We started out with boxes but they're too much work. We've
              settled on good old fashioned, herbicide-sucking turf.
              \_ Maybe a nice red brick pathway lined by dasies would put the
                 right touch to it.
                 \_ Hmmm. That's not a bad idea. We'll just have be careful not
                    to mow the flowers when we mow the lawn.  Maybe putting in a
                    wire border high enough to stop the fender...
                    \_ Well the flowers go "back" a bit from the edge so it'll
                       be hard to mow the flowers by mistake.  You only need
                       about 6 inches of clearance between the edge and the
                       plants.  Good luck with it!  Post pics when you're done.
              \_ I don't know any tricks for \fbox.  What if you just
                 delimited all changes with special characters?
                 e.g. ***** something that was changed ******

3/1     I'm looking for a product that will let me page my keys, like
        how you can page a cordless phone when you lose it around the
        house.  Anyone know where I can get this?  Particularly one
        that can control many little pagers.
           \_ http://www.greatbuyusa.com/category.asp?category=5
                It responds to a whistle.
                \_ too bad whistle is on key chain
        \_ the transceive that you'd have to attach to your keys would
           probably be pretty bulky and make this whole endeavor
           not practical.
           \_ It wouldn't have to support long ranges.
           \_ worst case, you could tape your phone to your keys. So it is
              not like it has to be *that* bulky, because you can get pretty
              small cordless phones these days.
        \_ I also want something that I can attach to my glasses and Palm
           Pilot. Something that will cost me $50 for like 4-5 sensors + base.
           \_ http://www.greatbuyusa.com/category.asp?category=5
                It responds to a whistle.
                \_ What would be cool is if they can make something like
                   this, except the whistle would cause something in the
                   key ring attachment to resonate, which gets turned into
                   torque and make the whole thing hover in the air.
        \_ maybe brookstone or sharper image?
        \_ i remember seeing something like this for keys in "SkyMall", the

        \_ what the hell are you talking about?

           http://sports.yahoo.com/ncaab/rankings/ratings.html
           \_ So how was he wrong and deserving of "jackass"? Not like AP
              is better or more accurate than the ESPN/USA Today poll. And
              it's really about the RPI ratings when it comes down to the
              Tourney anyway.
              \_ He was wrong because he said we were ranked AP #25, and that
                 is an incorrect statement. We are ranked AP #21. If he said
                 that we were ranked #25, I would have simply added "21 in AP!"
                 He gets the jackass title because I'm a jackass myself. Also,
                 he gets it because he's not giving "us" the credit we're due.
           \_ The Coach's poll is widely seen as a joke this year, esp
              after Utah's guy was tossed for voting for a team with a

2/8     Why do government officials sometimes talk about something on condition
        of anonymity?  If what they're saying is not supposed to leak out and
        they worry about being caught, they shouldn't even say that they
        represent the government, right?
        \_ Reporters generally contact them, not the other way around.
        \_ Sometimes they do that because letting the information be
           known is beneficial to them or to their superiors, or damaging
           to their adversaries , but the fact that they leaked the
           information would be a negative for them.  Other times it's
           because the reporter is good and the person owes the reporter
           a favour.

           response from the public.  same thing happens in the corporate
           sector.

2/8     For adult illiterates, how long does it usually take them to learn
        how to read/write...months? years?
        \_ Most adult illiterates aren't illiterate in the same sense as a
           child who is learning from scratch.  They're "functionally
           illiterate" which means they can read a few words or maybe simple
           phrases and probably know the alphabet but can't read and
           understand lengthy passages.  Time to learn depends on why they're
           like that.  Some learning disabilities are physical and not easily
           overcome but a poor education as a child won't slow them as an
           adult.
           \_ But a child has many more hours per day to learn something than
              an adult.  An adult has to work, or do the housework, or take
              care of the kids, etc.
                \_ But the child isn't spending any more time than the adult
                   and also doesn't have the cultural background an adult has
                   to understand the context of the words.  Given the same
                   time an adult will become functionally literate before a
                   child if the adult is illiterate due to poor education and
                   not mental/physical disability that hinders learning.

2/7     I know this sounds dumb, but what is so cool about meditation? I mean

        And if I want to rest, I'd take a nap. What can I get with meditation
        that I can't using other methods?
        \_ Meditation is not just relaxing, and while it can feel restful, you
           generally don't "rest".  It's a focusing of your thoughts and your
           physical actions.  It takes a lot of active thought and physical
           discipline to meditate well, and in turn meditation helps exercise
           both mind and body.  But if you find listening to KOIT relaxing,

2/07    What is the relationship between KHZ and bitrate for streaming audio.
        e.g. to stream at 22.1 KHz what kind of a bitrate (Kb/sec) do i need?
        \_ I think if it's 8-bit sampling you need 22100 * 8 bit/sec.  if it's
           16-bit you need 22100 * 16.
        \_ bitrate = sampling rate * sample bit depth

1/24    When people talk about 1st tier and 2nd tier schools, what exactly
        does that mean? Does first tier mean top 10, 2nd tier top 20, and
        so on so forth?
        \_ I will now offer a working definition:
           Tier one is the set of grad shools that do not have some
           significant difference between themselves and the best school(s)
           in the field.  Tier two schools have some significant way that
           they are not as strong as the tier ones , but are roughly on
           the same plane, and still good.  how big these sets are
           depends non how fine a distinction you look at.  I would say that
           in physics, there are about 6-10 first tier schools and mabye
           15 or so second tier schools, depending on who you ask.
        \_ I use 1st tier to mean top 20 and 2nd tier to mean #20-50.
           \_ you're claiming that there is no formal definition?
              \_ "formal" requires an authority. i'm sure someone out there
                 has declared themselves an authority and picked a definition.
                 _very_ probably, there're more than a few such someones, and
                 their definitions differ.
              \_ When using "tier" definitions, I would propose that there
                 is no exact number, otherwise people would USE that figure.
                 Tier is nebulous enough to mean top three to top 20.
        \_ some other people say top tier is top 10.  2nd tier is 10-20 or
           10-30 or so.  That's just another person's sense/opinion.
