11/10   This is just wrong:
        http://www.lego.com/starwars/home.asp
        \_ why?
           \_ legos are just wrong since they introduced 'sets' and got rid of
              the 'bucket of blocks'.
              \_ there's nothing wrong with sets.  what's wrong is the
                 increasing number of overly specialized  blocks that they
                 make that are appropriate for one set but are totally useless
                 elsewhere.
                 \_ yeah, ok, I agree this is a little annoying. But one
                    could hardly say its "wrong"... and anyway, I'm sure
                    enterprising young creative minds can find plenty of other
                    uses for these overly specialized pieces. hm, why are we
                    debating this. what a waste of time--
                    \_ no one is debating anything.  fact: it's just wrong.
           \_ as of at least a year or two ago you could still buy a bucket
              of blocks and it was pretty damn cheap too.
              \_ I was at a lego store 2 weeks ago and the one thing they
                 didn't have was anything even close to the traditional
                 bucket of blocks.
        \_ I have the 700piece Tie Interceptor that came out coupla years
           ago, sitting on my desk.  Fucking sweet.
           \_ Uh huh....  I bet the chicks really dig on that!  U R KEWL!
              \_ Oh, I'm sorry.  Is there an insult imbedded in that comment?
                 \_ N0 wae d00de, U R w4e KEWLE!!1  K4n 1 B U?!1

              \_ Are you sure you're thinking of the Leonids?! Last year
                 was the best year I've ever seen and I look every year.

                                said.  I tried the other side of the house and
                                it didn't help so I went to bed.
                    \_ I was in castro valley during the leonids last year
                       with all the city lights in a slightly hazy sky, and
                       I was able to catch about 2-3 per minute.  Are you

        \_ My parents use it but none of my peers ever have. I'm not in NYC tho.
           Fuck you.
        \_ It's a common English word.  Is "telephone" a word in common usage
           in nyc?
        \_ It has the same connotation as "half-breed."  Outside of the
           Nirvana song, I've never heard it used, and a lot of my family
           comes from Brooklyn.
           \_ i've heard it on howard stern, which i mentioned in my

                 Ling2 Yu4," the actress from the 30's who committed suicide.
                 \_ Thanks.  Does Nguyen actually have the same origin as
                    Ruan3 (like between Korean Lee and the Chinese Lee)?  Or
                    do they just happen to have the same pronounciation so the
                    Vietnamese borrowed the Chinese character (like between the
                    Chinese Lee and the American Lee)?

11/1    stupid programming terminology question: what's the difference between
        a "shim" and a "stub"?
        \_ A shim fits between A and B -- typically adapting one to another.
           (Note the dictionary definition of shim.)  A stub is a function which
           coforms to its signature but does nothing, typically to be replaced
           later.  A stub may be replaced by a proxy, as well.
           \_ Note that despite this perfectly logical description,
              "stub" is often used to refer to all of the above types
              of functions.

          fread(buf, m * n, 1, fp)

        \_ The last one reads any number of bytes between 0 and m*n, and
           returns the number of bytes read; the first one is guaranteed
           to read some multiple of m bytes, and returns the number of
           m-byte chunks read.
        \_ AFAIK, fread() takes chunk size and number because some
           operating systems' i/o API was based on chunks -- unlike
           Unix which uses bytes.  fread() is in the ANSI standard library,
           so the concept of chunk was added for portability.

             pretty much never buy a jacket over the net. i'm picky about
             pocket size, location, zipper and ventilation location etc.
        \- if you are in east bay, try North Face Outlet circa Gilman and 6th.
           If you only want anti-rain and not warmth, Marmot Precip Jacket is
           not bad. There are some cheaper clones of the Precip. Also light
           light and compressible, if space an issue. --psb, expedition proven
        \_ Might want to look at http://www.overstock.com  They often have
           some good deals for waterproof jackets.

        goretex rain jackets shed them in favor of $2 plastic hoods that the
        indigenous guides wore. unless you're going where it's really windy
        i recommend against the goretex.
        \- plastic and rubber dont breathe. the airflow you are getting is
           from the fact that you are wearing it like a poncho. you are
           going to want something that breathes for the layer that keeps
           you warm but not sweating. i have hiked in a garbage bag before
           and believe me, it's not pleasant ... that's a reasonable appraoch

           are improvising. --psb
           \- in re: gortex ... i wouldnt get gortex boots. stick with good

              wind, maybe down to 40deg ... possibility of going to freezing,
              i would go with: patagonia light thermals, large tshirt,
              windstopper jacket [get a cheap one], medium price gortex
              medium wt jacket, and large thin shell like the Precip.
              you can mix and match those for 90deg - 30deg. --psb
                \_ get goretex boots, they are worth it if yer sloshing

10/10   This is a serious question-- how is the word "cum" used if you're
        not a porn site operator?  I think there's some usage along the
        lines of "he was a engineer cum architect" but what exactly does
        that mean?  Dict only gives the other definition.  This is a

9/26    How come all the TV and radio station names start with the letter 'K'?
        \_ I forget, but there's some archaic reason for it. But it's only
           west of the Mississippi that begin with "K"; east on it is "W".
           \_ No wonder!  In "Private Parts" Howard Stern worked for a radio
              station WNBC in New York, and I wondered why the name didn't
              start with 'K'.
              \_ You should do some more traveling.

           \_ Interesting. The way I read this, the Ks and Ws are assigned in
              the opposite of the manner specified.
              \_ For ships, K=east and W=west. It seems the prefix for land
                 stations was reversed to prevent name-space collision.
           \_ Is that doc still in effect?  It says "KAA to KCZ..Germany and
              protectorates", yet we have KALX, KCBS, KCSM, etc.
              \_ From the recap.htm URL below: "[NOTE: KAA-KCZ was allocated
                 to Germany at this time, and was not assigned to the United
                 States until 1929.]"
              \_ Those are 4-letter stations, but the document specifically
                 addresses "a group of three letters". I believe the document
                 is referring to ship-based radio. The same site has more:

9/18    Is there an online resource for looking up by name when someone
        graduated?
        \_ if you have their SSN and last name, you can use the degree
           verification db. linked off of http://registrar.berkeley.edu. -alexf
           \_ no SSN.  If I had that, I could have a lot more than their
              graduation date.
        \_ http://classmates.com?  http://alumni.net?
        \_ if your an alum, goto <DEAD>cal.berkeley.edu<DEAD>

9/17    If we think of our eyes as digital cameras, how many pixels are there
        on the retina?
        \_ 2053x1089, 24bit
        \_ I've always thought that we don't see things in pixels. Isn't it
           really apples & oranges?
           \_ Yes, but if you were to use 100000x100000 pixels, our eyes
              wouldn't be able to see the granularity. Look at a nice print
              magazine (like national geographic). On most pictures, you won't
              see any grain.
        \_ the fovea is much higher resolution than the periphery of the
           retina.  for example, in low ligh, with only the rods active, even
           the best of us only see 20/400. For discussion on density of
           distribution of rods and cones see:

        \_ ENGLISH, MOTHERFUCKER, DO YOU SPEAK IT?
           \_  ENGLISH--CAN YOU WRITE IT PROPERLY?
              \_ Can either of you figure out that writing in ALL CAPS is
                 really annoying?  Would the Self Appointed Self Righteous
                 Motd Censor(tm) please purge this thread?  Thanks.
                 \_ Dude, do NOT encourage the censoring asshole.  The last
                    thing the shithead needs is more fuel for his self
                    righteousness.
