        \_ t1 ~ 1.544mb. never heard of a t2. t3 ~ 45mb. oc-3 ~ 155mb
        \_ t2 was about 7 bucks and 137 minutes fast.  152 for the director's
           cut and 154 for the extended special edition.
           \_ is anyone even interested in t3, which just finished filming?

9/13    What's the difference between Aikido and Hapkido?  Thanks.
        \_ As far as I can tell, Aikido is a Japanese art and Hapkido
           (Hankido as well?) is Korean.  Ha[np]kido incorporates
           techniques from TKD, Aikido, and Judo.  I believe both words
           mean the same thing in their respective languages (stuff about
           universe and harmony and way and all that).  I don't do either
           of those arts, though, so you might be better off using google.
           -geordan
                \_ which one will more effectively allow me to kick your ass?
                   \_ Run fu -geordan
                   \_ !fu -- Gal
                   \_ 9mm-fu but others prefer .38-fu.
                      \_ 45ACP!  45ACP!  45ACP IS THE STANDARD!  Gun caliber.
                      \_ Ah, gun fu.  I prefer the .45 ryu style. -geordan
                         \_ again, it's all about !fu.
        \_ I've taken both, but neither for very long.  Aikido tends to
           be a lot more about moving in circles and "using an opponent's
           strength against them", a lot of throws, some joint work, but
           not all that much.  Hapkido seems like it has a lot more
           locks, some throws, just a little bit of striking, and less
           philosophy / cultivation of a mindset.  The difference in my
           perception may have more to do with taking Aikido at a private
           place and taking Hapkido at Cal, though, than the actual
           differences between the two.  -niloc
        \_ Hapkido is a nice mix of things - throwing, kicking, mat work,
           rolls, wrist techniques, falls.  If you're interested, just go
           to RSF and watch one of the Hapkido club workouts, or take the
           PE class.  It's a very useful all-around martial art, and the
           cal club is both fun and very affordable - mds
           \_ i did not *really* apreciate how great the UC martial
              arts program at cal is until I saw what martial arts are
              like at other suposedly great schools. enjoy it while you
              can. if you have access to the RSF, now is the time to try
              whatever martial arts you're interested in.

              cave.  No one would spend real money or risk lives to humiliate
              anyone in some 4th rate shithole.  Ridiculous.

9/4     Is there any medical reason to shower regularly?  what will happen

        \_ You won't breed.  Your grades will drop as profs and TA despise
           your existence and other students avoid you.  You'll always pay
           the highest price in a negotiation situation and will always get
           the worst possible service if you get served at all.  There are
           few medical consequences of note.  Since you're ignoring the real
           reason for showering, you're probably already long past the social
           consequences anyway.  Go ahead, stop showering.  It's perfectly ok!
        \_ You will become indistinguishable from scores of other eecs
           undergrads who have graced the halls of soda and cory.
        \_ Your chances of getting laid goes to near zero if you don't
           shower at least regularly.  Yes, even nearer zero than it is
           right now.  To be honest, you probably will not notice a
           difference anyway, so just go ahead and stop showering.
           \_ Unless you're French and in France.

8/28    What is the difference between a coup and a putsch?
        \_ Depends on whether you want a french style "off with their heads"
           regime change, or a russian style "shoot them all and dump their
           bodies in the snow" regime change.  American style would be to
           almost do it, then not, then come back 10 years later.
           \_ What do you mean by "almost" in American style?  We did overthrow
              British control.

8/27    4600: still 233.  9700: rises to 388.33....

              came online to claim the 4600 is crap compared to his not-yet-

              finally does ship and we get real price comparisons.  Then I'll
              rub it in some more.  For the record: I don't plan on owning
              either card and agree with you that fanboyism is stupid.

                 and there was too much material to be covered in 2 semesters.
                 i was even there when they decided that teach both scheme
                 and c in 1 semester was too difficult, and they watered

                             unofficial reason for going from the 50/55
                             sequence to the 60abc sequence was too many
                             people was failing out of 50.  so they
                             essentially took the original 50 and split it
                             into 2 classes, 60a and 60c.  60b was largely
                             the same as 55.  of course, after the 1st
                             semester, it was obvious students still
                             couldn't handle both c and scheme in one
                             semester.  so by the 2nd semester of the class
                             (sp87 i think), they further reduced 60a to
                             scheme only and saved c for 60c.  scuttlebutt
                             was guys who took the original 60a breezed
                             through the watered down 60c, and guys who
                             took the later watered down 60a had more

        will overlap a rectangle if both xy points fall outside the
        rectangle?
        \_ google "method of separating axes" -pld
        \_ Easy anwer: check if the line interests any of the rectangle's lines
           \_is that the only solution? seems like an inefficient method.
             \_ Maybe compute dot product of line and two perdendicular sides
                of the rectangle and depending on that call some particular
                case of the solver? Or maybe just go with the assumption
                if the line intersects any *two* edges then it goes inside,
                so basically solving the line simultanously against each side.
                there clerely is some optimization that can be done.
                \_ What is the underlying problem?
        \_ Turn each edge of the rectangle into an infinite line,

8/10    dotcoms fail because they don't have a good business model. I've been
        looking at how timeshares work and I simply can't see a business
        model in it. Suppose you buy a deeded timeshare and you can pass it
        on to your heirs indefinitely. The time share corps get your money at
        first, but in time (50-100 years), wouldn't they lose
        money even if you pay maintenance, which isn't a lot? Is this just
        another from of the pyramid scheme? Isn't it just a matter of time
        before these companies go out of business?
        \_ How do you figure they're losing money?  And timeshares are a
           terrible investment.  Do not put your money in a timeshare.  You're
           better off in the lottery.  At least *some* people make money on the
           lottery.
        \_ wow, you're so smart.  I never would have realized that dotcoms
           have bad business models and that they're going to go out of
           business.  oh, wait, most of them already have.
        \_ you pay a pretty hefty chunk of maintenance on the timeshare,
           they're not going out of business any time soon.  Of course the ones
           who make the real money are the people selling the timeshare.
        \_ That's like saying condo's lose money, it doesn't make any sense.
           Yeah, the builders make all their money up front, then they hand
           over maintenance to the owners, who just recover their costs.
        \_ Some good dotcoms were dragged down by bad ones who sold literally
           toilet paper over the net, etc.

        \_ There are two kinds of patents.  The bullshit kind that big corps
           swap with each other that aren't written with the intent of ever
           seriously enforcing them, and the kind that are written to be
           enforced.  The typical slashdot idiot doesn't understand this and
           mistakes the former for the latter.  Ok, off my high horse.  Anyway,
           getting a useful patent that can be enforced requires very expensive
           searches for prior art and very expensive and experienced patent
           lawyers who can write a quality patent that will stand up in court.
           Assuming you've got the $20k or more to do all this, you're still
           not out of the woods because it can easily take *millions* of

7/11    how dangerous are turtles?  if one of the bigger ones attacks my
        kayak, will I be able to defend myself with my paddle?
        \_ Turtles are usually harmless.  However, there are a few species
           in genus Terrapene Dinocarnivorus and Clemmus Giganticus which have
           been classified as extremely dangerous.  These species feed on
           large surface-floating objects, such as bull seals--as they are
           at home both in salt- and freshwater environments, individuals
           examples weighing up to 900 pounds have been spotted in a variety
           of North American rivers.  Interestingly enough, they do not attack
           turquoise or pink kayaks;  however, the frequent incidents
           involving humans can often result in death or dismemberment.  In
           ocean environments, these behemoths are even more frequently
           deadly, especially when encountered during a waning moon.  Due to
           their heavily carnivorous diet, the animals' highly flatulent
           expectorations can be of a caustic nature, and thus very harmful
           to human mucus membranes.  -John
           \_ They only attack the Swiss so the OP is probably safe. -ausman
        \_ where are you kayaking? tahiti?
        \_ Okay, I'll bite: the turtles in Hawaii may be different from
           the ones where you are going, but I couldn't even chase them
           while snorkling. Turtles are wary of others. I don't think
           they'll attack you while kayaking.
           \_ that's what I was hoping.  I saw waves heading away from
              my kayak that kind of had to be a turtle which indicated it
              was big enough to knock the boat over, and if it was a snapping
              turtle it could kill me then.  i'm not going to start any
              trouble with a turtle on purpose, and i figured it was afraid
              of me also, but i really really don't want a toombstone that
              says "killed by turtle."
              \_ The snapping turtle bites!--More--
                 You die...--More---
           Donatello, but I think that Raphel and the others will easily
                                       \_ Raphael
        \_ Depends on which one attacks you. You might be able to take
           Donatello, but I think that Raphael and the others will easily
           break your paddle and kick your ass.
           \_ Don was always kind of the wussy boy.
           \_ Make sure you don't wear clothing with the Gnome logo, as
              the turtles might mistake you for a member of the Foot clan.
              Then you would really get your ass kicked. (I don't care if
              you are a member of the Cal Tae Kwon Do team, they are NINJAS!)
           \_ Fuck!  Is the Ninja Turtle generation in college already?!
              \_ C0W4BUNG4 D00D!
        \_ There used to be some really big turtles, but they are all dead
           now, so you should be fine.
        \_ Turtles don't attack people.  People attack turtles.  Stay away
           from the turtles.  They're harmless, endangered and almost totally
           defenseless if you can catch them.
               \_ Except for their NINJA weapons!

7/8     Since WWF matches are fake, the two wrestlers know the results ahead
        of time, right?  How is it decided that who's supposed to win and who's
        supposed to lose?  Thx.   -- FOB
        \_ popularity and storyline.  also...it's WWE.  get the F out.  -uctt
        \_ basically, whatever will keep the fans' interest.
           \_ So it's the WWE, not the two wrestlers or their agents, who
              decices which of the two is going to win?  I see.   -- FOB
        \_ I still can't get over the fact that they did NOT merge
           with Monster Truck Racing.
