6/28    What are the adverse effects of replacing a circuit breaker with
        one not specifically designed for the breaker box?
        \_ It breaks. :-)
        \_ Go for it.  Fire hazards are FUN!
           \_ No, seriously-- the amperage rating is the same, and it fits
              in perfectly.  What are the specific hazards/pitfalls?
              \_ self-immolation?
              \_ No, seriously, call an electrician.
                 \_ As it turns out, it's largely alright-- home
                    inspectors like to see all the breakers under a single
                    brand, but as long as it's a tight fit the only
                    potential problem is the bus arcing over and causing
                    pitting/corrosion.  That may generate heat, which is
                    bad if your box is surrounded by oily rags and tinder,
                    but in my case this doesn't apply.  All of this came
                    from a licensed electrician.
                    \_ Why not just replace the breaker with the same
                       brand? I don't get it. Are you *that* cheap? --dim

6/27    anybody watched "witness to hope" on PBS?  The documentary talked

6/19    I met this girl over the phone, we talked for over 3 hours.
        Since then, we've emailed for a few days, but now she's not
        replied to me for almost 48 hours. What should I do?
        Tips? URLs? thanks.
        \_ you have to watch out for those "guys" you meet
           over the phone
        \_ ask her to meet for dinner
        \_ are you sure she isn't out on a vacation or something?
           or talking to her girlfriends wondering what to do?
        \_ chill out.  she'll either get back to you or not.  maybe you were
           too fast and too pushy and desperate sounding.  48 hours?  you're
           in a big panic?  you sound desperate.  relax.
        \_ Are you the same guy who almost moved in w/ a girl you are
           interested in?
        \_ Wow.  48 hours.  she must be fucking someone else.  kill her.  kill
           her now.

           \_ Hm..  makes it difficult to kill her.  you could contract it

           in person yet. I would recommend meeting her before things get

6/9     Serious question: I sometimes email co-workers in Japan. Should
        I append -san to a person's name when addressing them in email?
        I see other people doing that, but I don't know what it means.
        \_ Serious answer, -san I believe is how you address someone politely.
           For example, Noburi-san may mean Mr. Noburi or something, even
           though Noburi may be a first name. It's just a custom there. Note
           that this applies when addressing a male (esp. if he's older than
           \_ what if they are the head of a lab and have a phd? is
              there an equivalent to "Dr." in common use?
              \_ XX-kyoju is how you address somebody who is a professor. If
                 you are not sure if they are a professor, you can say
                 XX-sensei. -- ulysses
              \_ XX-kyoju is how you address somebody who is a professor. If you
                 are not sure if they are a professor, you can say XX-sensei.
                  -- ulysses
                  \_ so if someone haves the same rank in the field as
                     a professor, but does not teach at a university(head
                     of a lab in industry) can you still use sensei?
                     i thought sensei meant teacher, directly translated.
        \_ Yep, especially if they have an umbrella:
           \_ Remember, umbrellas don't kill people, people kill people!
        \_ just ask the others why they do it to see if you should too.
        \_ email their hookers. it's classier.
           \_ email them hookers, it's more appreciated.
        \_ Yes.  If you don't, it can be taken as disrespectful.  And you
           should address women with -san too.
           \_ unless you are Kenshin, in which case you must use -dono
        \_ Do they address you the same way?  Address them the same way they
           do you.  Or you could take the When In Rome approach.  You're in
           America.  We don't add -san to emails.
                \_ Yup, it's all about expectations and these woolly samurai
                   don't expect you to pretend you know their culture.

        not considered gramatically correct, or is that just an

5/20    What is an effective way of representing data in a timing diagram?
        specific information that needs to be included is: what signal
        it is, when it goes on, how long it is on for. Is it better to
        record, at every possible timestep, what signal is on/off; or is
        it better to represent it as, for a given signal, the time the
        pulse go on and then how long they last? (the pulses do not all
        stay on for the same time).
        \_ That's really vague. What kind of data? Usually it's shown
           relative to the clocks that drive the data.
                \_ sorry. the clock isn't really relevant since this
                   sequence can start at any time. specifically, I
                   need to somehow store how I want ~50 signals to
                   go off (in terms of duration and when the pulses
                   begins. what I'm looking for is an efficient way
                   of storing this information. that information
                   will later be used to actually drive those 50
                   different signals (which are just pulses).
        \_ "better" is a funny word.  What constraints do you have?  If you
           store the state for each tick you'll use more space.  If you need
           to check against 50 different signal data points each tick you'll
           use more time and probably have more complex code.

5/17    Would someone please explaine how a set can be both open and closed
        at the same time?  --PeterM
                \_ Being clopen is rare in Euclidean space with the usual
                   metric. The only clopen sets are the entire space
                   and the empty sets. However, when you endow the space
                   with some other topology, the you can get many clopen
                   sets . For example, the discrete topology implies that
                  *every* set is clopen. The key point is that open
                   and closed sets are not opposites, but simply classes
                   of sets with different definitions. Closed essentially
                   means "limits of sequences of points are in the set"
                   and open means "every point has a little fuzzy neigborhood"
                   around it. If you think of it that way, it's not too hard
                   to believe that under some topologies you can "trick"
                   a set into being open and closed at the same time. fab
        \_ open and closed seem like oposites most of the time, but their not.
           The only good example I can think of this is the whole line
      (-infty,infty) - has all of its limit points and yet still every point
      is in a neighborhood which is in the set.  'course that implies that
      the nought set is open and closed as well.  There are more funky
      examples when your universe isn't R.

           \_ You can usually find good examples of unintuitive results by
              considering a discrete metric space (i.e. a set of points
              with the metric d(a,b) = 0 if a = b and 1 otherwise).  In this
              space every set of points is closed because any convergant
              sequence of points in the set converges to a limit point in
              the set and open because an epsilon-ball centered on point X
              in the set only contains points in the set (in fact the
              epsilon ball only contains X). -emin
        \_ Both of the above posts are right. Keep in mind that "closed" is
           often defined as "complement of an open set", and what sets are
           open is part of the definition of the topological structure of
           the space (which has to obey certain axioms).

Between 1950 and 1952, a bored weatherman, stationed north of Hudson
Bay, left a monument that neither government nor time can eradicate.
Using a bulldozer abandoned by the Air Force, he spent two years and
great effort pushing boulders into a single word.

It can be seen from 10,000 feet, silhouetted against the snow.
Government officials exchanged memos full of circumlocutions (no Latin
equivalent exists) but failed to word an appropriation bill for the
destruction of this cairn, that wouldn't alert the press and embarrass
both Parliament and Party.

It stands today, a monument to human spirit.  If life exists on other
planets, this may be the first message received from us.
                -- The Realist, November, 1964.
