7/3     Where can I find the video of Colin Powell's YMCA song performance
        at the ASEAN security meeting in Jakarta on July 2nd?
        \- google for "why_cooperation_with_the_state_dept_is_impossible.au"

                 \_ Dude, wtf?
        \_ Powell >>>> Gore.  If you ever see the footage of Gore "dancing"
        it's pretty bad.  I didn't see anything wrong with what Powell was
        doing, he was just having a good time in front of a crowd of Asians,
        who have probably spent plenty of time in Karaoke bars ...

7/2     How do people pronounce C++'s "operator()"?
        \_????? Do you mean you are overloading the empty constructor?
           \_ Hi.  You are stupid.
              \_ Hi dickwad, how's how's life going being a constant
                 asshole? Anyway, I found the answer, it's called a
                 "function call operator" if OP meant foo(a,b). Since
                 OP was somewhat ambigious it could also refer to overloading
                 the cast operator.
                 \_ Actually, it couldn't. Unless OP didn't know what he
                    was talking about, of course. There seems to be a lot
                    of that going around.
                    \_ Agreed, since it would require the casting rvalue
                       notation in front of it to be overloading casting.
                       However, given the attitude of people on MOTD these
                       days they could've said "oh, well, what I meant
                       was..." and wiggle their way out of it. Anyway,
                       I certainly hope OP isn't overloading () on a regular
                       basis. Thanks for reminding me what a dog the
                       language of C++ is.

7/2     From yesterday's motd:
                while ( $line = <> ){
                      if ( $line !~ /line/ ) {
                        if ( ! $firstline ) {
                                $firstline = $line;
                                $firstindex = $count++;

                print foreach @output;
                # (Approximately)  -tom
        From the context, the 2nd line of this is meant to mean
            "if the current line does not contain the regexp 'line'"
        But why does !~ do this?
        \_ !~ is the shorthand for (! $foo =~ /blah/)
        \_ equivalent in this case would be: unless ($line =~ /line/) {
        \_ someone repost the whole thing please, I missed it
           \_ that is the whole thing.

6/30    This is so fucked up. The TV stations gets fined for Janet's
        breast showing? I'd say Janet or Justin Timberlake should be
        fined big time. Janet can claim she's innocent, but that
        fucker Justin Timberlake should be fined a few million dollars
        for his act.
        \_ Oh, she just happened to be wearing a removable top.  I'm sure it
           was a total surprise what he did.
           \_ Get with the times!  Everyone knows removable pull tops are *the*
              thing today!  It was simply a wardrobe malfunction and no one is
              to blame.  As usual.
              \_ You're an idiot.  One that's clearly been locked in a closet.
                 I suppose it's possible you could be anti-sports boy, and
                 avoid the telly lest you get even a HINT of something
                 sportsy (which would explain your lack of clue).
                 \_ once again, sarcasm-detection fails.
                 \_ Uh?  Are you ok?  WTF are you tryign to say here?  Who even
                    mentioned sports?  Weirdo.
                    \_ Uhm, no I'm NOT okay DAMMIT!  Someone broke into my
                       apartment and raped my dog?  How would you feel if your
                       credit card got rejected, huh?
        \_ If it was solely Justin's fault, how come Janet didn't blame the
           whole thing on him, and sue him and stuff?
        \_ The most fucked up part isn't the breast but the fact that the ads
           run during the superbowl contained far more lascivious imagery than
           Janet's boob hanging out - but since it was an ACTUAL nipple everyone
           got all in a tizzy.
           \_ Why does it surprise you that people would be more upset with
              reality than non-reality?

           easily provide 100mbps or even gig to homes. The limitation would

6/10    Best Aphex Twin album?
        \_ Arguable.  A lot of people would say the "Richard D. James" album or
           maybe "I Care Because You Do."  My vote is for "Selected Ambient
           Works 85-92", but its a little dated sounding.  "Selected Ambient
           Works II" is rewarding but extremely difficult to get into if you're
           not familiar with minimalist composers like Arvo Part or Steve
           Reich.  An album that a lot of people miss out on is "Classics,"
           which is a collection of his early EPs and is really great if you're
           interested in his spastic hardcore techno roots (e.g. "Didgredoo")
           Also "26 Mixes For Cash" is great if you want to hear him do crazy
           shit to other people's pop music.

              \_ Only SAW II is minimalist - the first SAW album is light
