8/21    Yeah, its Salon, but very interesting nonetheless.  Eyewitness report
        from the only journalists trapped inside the Imam Ali shrine.
        Apparently the widely reported peace deals have never really
        existed.  And now back to your regularly scheduled Really
        Important SwiftBoat Trolls!
        http://www.salon.com/news/feature/2004/08/19/shrine/index.html
        \_ Trapped inside?  How exactly can they be 'trapped' inside?  If they
           want to get out but aren't allowed to then they are hostages.  If
           they want to be there then they are the 'reporter on the scene'.
           \_ Mmmm, maybe you should READ THE ARTICLE and FIND OUT?!

8/21    Can someone please recommend a book on matlab?
        \_ Don't bother with a book...just use the users manual. As long
           as you know how to program (or even write pseudocode), you're
           more than halfway there with matlab; use the manual to fill in
           the rest.

           Microwave Engineering by David Pozar is a great
           introduction to general microwave concepts.  He also
           has a book with more practical device stuff.  A good read.

        \_ Google, page 3.  Lazy ass.
           \_ I dont think you know what you are reading.
              \_ A function (over a field F) is considered quasiperiodic with
                 period \omega if there exist a, b \in F such that
                 f(z + \omega) = f(z)*e^{az + b}.

           its Fourier exponents has an integer and finite basis.

8/17    What's the safest biking route to get from Golden Gate Park to the
        Golden Gate Bridge?  I don't mind going extra distance for safety.
        \_ RIDE BI oh wait...
        \_ Personally, I take 25th Ave from the middle of the park.  I don't
           know how you define "safety," although I surmise it's not the
           same way I would.  There is a marked bike lane on either 24th or
           23rd Ave, I forget which.  Or you can take the coast road past
           the Cliff House, which has less cross-traffic.  -tom

              \_ probably collateral damage from nuclear war going on

                 \_ I agree.  Overwrites have been extremely frequent and
                    fast these days.
           \_ From the east side, you can take Arguello to Crissy Field
              and then up from the shoreline about a mile before the GGB.

8/15    How to use -o (-or) flag with find? that is the question.
        find ./ -name hi -o -name there -print, for example, does not

        \_ How do I, damnit.  HOW DO I.  Not how to.  You are
           intentionally refusing to learn this aren't you?

              is all about abbreviations and shorthand anyway.
              \_ "How do I" is two whole characters more and doesn't make
                 you sound like a total moron.
              \_ That's about as stupid as people asking questions
                 in the form of urlP. I've been on other message
                 boards before and nobody asks questions starting
                 with "How to".
              \_ No, actually it isn't.  If you're sloppy and lazy then
                 there may be some truth to this, but generally no.
              \_ And this is also the reason why (EE)CS majors
                 are known for their poor social skills.
                 \_ What about "what is cheeseboard?"
        \_ find . \( -name hi -o -name there \) -print
           there's an implicit -and between the "-name there" and the
           "-print"  I'd assume some order of operations precedence
          skips the -print

8/8     John, why is the Swiss domain suffix .ch?  What was wrong with .sw?
        \_ Found the answer myself, sorry:
           "Switzerland is also known as "Confoederatio  Helvetica",
            therefore the abbreviation CH.  "Confoederatio" stands for
            "confederation", "Helvetica" derives from the Latin  word
            "Helvetier", the name of the people who lived in the area which
            became  later Switzerland.

8/4     \- you know i think it is reasonable to claim
           "you cant be serious" [NPI] about being a
           Kantian, but to claim that it is vague is
           silly. an entire approach to ethics is named
           after kant ... that's not my doing. it would
           be more not less obscure to have said i am
           a deontologist than to say kantian. --psb
           \_ Kant's contributions to ethics are immense.  So are
              Christian contributions, but hardly anyone would answer
              my question with "I am a Christian."  You can be a
              Kantian liberal, a Kantian conservative, or a Kantian
              anything in between.  Heck, I could be considered a
              Kantian, too.  Bringing up Kant in this context clarifies
              nothing other than the fact that you have read Kant.
              Good for you.  So have I. -- ilyas
              \_ A phrase like "I am a Catholic" would have more meaning
                 if more people who would claim to be really are.  The
                 teachings of the Church is treated more like recommended
                 guidelines or maybe merely ideas for consideration.  Many
                 Catholics I meet remind me so much of those apocryphal
                 vegetarians who eat chicken or fish.  It's not clear the
                 teachings of Kant has been diluted as much as the teachings
                 of the Church or of the Popes, so "I am a Kantian" probably
                 is more meaningful than "I am a Catholic", let alone "I am
                 a Christian."
                 \_ You can view 'teachings of Kant' as a distillation of
                    Christian teachings by a very intelligent man (Kant was
                    deeply religious).  (There is much more to Kant, of course).
                    I can tell by what little I know of Partha's life that
                    Partha is not a Christian, so certainly isn't a Kantian in
                    any sort of hardcore sense.  The Kantian label clarifies
                    nothing for me. -- ilyas

7/29    In the day of background checks; are you still able to omit jobs
        where things did not work out with a boss and you were fired ? There
        was no misconduct involved; just a personality clash with a manager.
        \_ Omit anything you want.  Just don't lie and say you were working
           elsewhere or add education you don't have, etc.  I don't give
           out contact info for shitty bosses.  Just because there's a
           blank on a form doesn't mean they need the info.  The only place
           that ever checked anything anyway was a financial place and a
           high security government lab.

              had was for jobs from 6 years ago they are going to wonder why.

                 provided reference for numerous people through the years.
              \_ I give coworkers from more recent jobs.  I don't pretend I
                 wasn't at a shitty place.  If I don't have a reference from
                 my most recent job, tough shit.
        \_ I would say it depends on how long you were at the job. Three

        \_ The simple answer is it can devote more bits to accurately tracking
           the shape of the objects in the image, or to accurately tracking
           the movement of the objects.  At one extreme you have a fuzzy
           picture that doesn't go to crap when the scene changes fast or there
           is a lto of movement.  At the other, you have a very sharp picture
           that gets nasty artifacts whenever stuff moves.  For an action
           movie, choose smooth, for something with a lot of static shots,
           choose sharp.

7/26    It is very annoying that I am charged for some 510 calls and not
        others (and ditto 415 numbers).  Is there some way to check in advance
        which numbers are going to cost me?
        \_ Yes.
        \_ Local prefixes are listed in your phone book.
           \_ at least in San Jose (pacbell), they took this out a couple years
              ago... the only way is to call the operator (at least it's a free
              call!) -dwc
        \_ Generally speaking, locations outside a 12 mile radius will cost
           you. BTW, for anyone interested, this place apparently gives
           free LD phone calls. http://www.phonefairy.com/pages/1/index.htm
           I'm not sure what the catch is, but they asked for my phone number
           and email address, so I assume they'll sell it to a bunch of
           people or something. I gave them a fake phone number and an email
           I don't check much, so whatever. I tried it from a payphone the
           other day and it worked...

7/12    Cedar Rapids fire department blocks plan for Church book burning.
        http://www.cnn.com/2004/US/Midwest/07/12/no.book.burning.ap
        Ah shucks.  First they take away our book burnings, then they'll
        take away cross burnings, and then who knows what next?
        \_ Maybe they'll take away your right to yell "FIRE!" in a crowded
           theatre!  Where has my America gone?  Oh, woe!
        \_ "Breedlove said a city fire inspector suggested shredding the
            offending material, but Breedlove said that wouldn't seem
            biblical. 'I joked with the guy that St. Paul never had to
            worry about fire codes,' Breedlove said."  I don't seem to
            remember book burning in the Bible.  Let alone in Acts, can
            anyone site a scripture? -jrleek
                   \- mr. leek: i assumed that was a reference to
                      RAV v. St. Paul. although i was surprised that
                      the chuch person would know the case ... maybe it
                      was more memorable in the midwest. ok tnx. --psb
            \_ I thought book burning was more of a Hitler-style thing than
               a Jesus Christ Superstar thing.
               \_ Consider that before the printing press was invented and
                  common, books were made by hand and were illustrated works
                  of art, not the commonly available throw away paper backs
                  we have today.  Book burning would have been insanely
                  expensive, hard to get enough in one place anyway, and since
                  most people were illiterate, simply stupid and silly.
            \_ [2 Peter 3:10] But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in
               the night; in which the heavens shall pass away with a great
               noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth
               also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

7/11    What freepers do when they're not trolling the motd:
        http://www.nytimes.com/2004/07/11/international/asia/11afgh.html?hp
        \_ i heard about this on headline news and was dumbfounded that
           people would actually do something like this.  this has to be
           the best sentence from the story:
                 A piece of paper on the wall was titled "Missions
                 to Complete" and listed various tasks. Item No. 2
                 was "Karzai." Item No. 4 was "pick up laundry."
        \_ Ever read The Man who would be King?  -John
           \_ no.  are you recommending it?
                \_ Yup.  And find Beyond the Pale while you're at it.  -john

                                        \_ Sorry, Rudyard Kipling.  Mwwbk is
                                           a book, second is a short story.
                \_ The Bible is a good read, too.  Just skip all the "so n so
                   begat so n so" in Genesis.

7/7     In a email, what difference is conveyed between "Hi Peter and "Dear
        Peter"?  Is the former really considered less formal and less polite?
        \_ Yes.
           \_ Less formal certainly, but less polite depends on the context.
        \_ If you're writing to a loved one (a situation for "dear")
           then do it in a letter.  Email is casual/business use, where "Peter"
           or "Hi Peter," does fine.
           \_ No one writes 'dear' to a loved one as a greeting. -- ilyas
              \_ Dear Ilya,
                 Tell us about the stars!

              \_ Dear Ilyas,
                 I love you
                 Ilyas #1 fan
              \_ I use "dear" writing to my grandmother
        \_ Dear doesn't belong in email. If the letter is formal enough to
           demand a "Dear", then maybe it shouldn't be sent in email?
           \_ Exactly.  I think email should be used like a memo.  Offtopic:
              am I the only one who cringes when ppl say "emails"?
              \_ By "used like a memo" do you mean content free corporate
                 buzzword horseshit?
              \_ no, unless used as a verb in the correct tense.
