1/14    old thread about Titan moved elsewhere.
           \_ Please don't politicize this. Dubya wasn't even President
              when Cassini launched and when this date was chosen.
              \_ What you meant to say was, "Please take your discussion off
                 my thread", which I'll do.
                 \_ That, too. How pathetic the person was to tie a triumph
                    of man, science, and engineering to hatred of the President
                    of one of the countries involved - a President who
                    wasn't for most of the mission.
                    \_ The message is that Dubya likes to bury bad news on
                       Friday, and the news he is burying today would be
                       particulary bad for overall public opinion of him.
                       The fact that Titan was one of the overshadowing news
                       items is not really relevant.
                       In fact, I think it is blindingly obvious to sodans
                       that Dubya had little to do with funding or promotion
                       of the Cassini mission, or the date of the Huygens
                       probe entering Titan's atmosphere - the satellite itself
                       was launched 7 years ago.
                       I was hoping by moving the post to another thread,
                       my meaning would become more clear - the other intended
                       effect being you could have a politics-free
                       discussion on this thread.
                       \_ Of course it wasn't Dubya.  It was Al Gore.
                          \_ Al Gore invented Titan.
                       \_ You're an idiot.
                          \_ Show me.  Put your money where your mouth is.
                             To be explicit, your "money" in this case is
                             your time.
                             \_ You are leaving little doubt with comments
                                like these.
                                \_ How do you respond when someone calls you
                                   an idiot?
                                   \_ For god's sake, you're arguing with dim.
                                      Stop feeding him.
                                      \_ I know it's dim.  I guess I'll stop
                                         now, since I think all the arguments
                                         are already out. -jctwu
                                         \_ Why do you hate America?
                                   \_ Amazing. You are a bigger idiot than
                                      I thought.
                           \_ Why bother even replying to an ad hominem attack?
                              \_ Most on soda pride themselves on being
                                 soundly logical, when they want to.
                                 I'm appealing to that aspect.
                                 \_ Someone who can tie Titan to Bush and
                                    then defend that decision is clearly an
                                    idiot. There's no ad hominem here.
                                    Retorts like 'To be explicit, your
                                    "money" in this case is your time.'
                                    further cement his idiocy.
                                    \_ You're an idiot.
                                       \_ I know you are, but what am I?
                                          \_ An idiot?

1/2     US often does not deliver the money it pledges.
                http://www.nytimes.com/2004/12/30/opinion/30thu2.html
                \-I believe the US gives more private charity than
                  Europe and the US also makes a lot of non money
                  contributions [security burden, say w.r.t. to
                  Korea, Taiwan, Japan, NATO etc]. I think these
                  aggregate numbers dont however capture some
                  distribution issues. For example the US has
                  given $200bn in aid to Israel alone [pop ~6m]
                  over the last 30yrs. If you take out Israel,
                  Egypt and Philippines, the total numbers are
                  pretty low. --psb
                  \_ give me a break.  We were "protecting" Phillipines,
                     but when Japanese invaded, we gave up that island
                     without putting up with a good fight.  Those "security"
                     burden are imposed by USA themselves for USA's own
                     interest.  To compare what US 7th fleet doing versus
                     donations from Red Cross is ridiculous.
                     \- nobody is calling this kind of thing humanitarian
                        aid, and some of it is certainly self-serving. however
                        this kind of "hegemonic stability" does have real
                        benefits. to take a less controversial example, take
                        the US GPS satellites. the US certainly spent more
                        resources in europe's backyard in the post-yugoslavia
                        conflict than a lot of the countries criticizing the
                        US. i think it's clear i'm not an apologist for
                        the us govt like some hacks here, but the simplitic
                        view on aid does miss some very relevant considerations.

                           plenty of downside to it.  You probably don't live
                           outside USA often, you have no idea what kind of
                           misdeed Amercan has done to other nations, from
                           as benign as bending trade rules to American
                           advantage (DMCA, currency manipulatn) to overthrown
                           of governments (Iran, Chili, Guatemala, and now,
                           Afganistan and Iraq); not to mention our barbaric
                           policy toward dozen Arab nations which spawn radical
                           Fundamental Islamic movement we are facing today.
                           It is hard to see the downside of it unless some
                           other country is dominating the world.  Given the
                           choice, I would much prefer three to five
                           dominating powers in the world than American
                           hegemony.    -kngharv
                  \_ Maybe this is off-topic, but no one really has a
                     right to complain. The fifth fleet and US military
                     has secured Middle East oil for 15 y.  World sea
                     commerce prospers because the US Navy, and less so
                     \- well, it's not only the USNavy ... for example the
                        indian navy does some anti-piracy stuff in the
                        indian ocean. not all the security issues are
                        state vs state, "high politics" and national
                        security, but yeah there are a lot of free-
                        riding and coat tail effects [like the us funded
                        tsunami monitoring program] but a lot of that is
                        pocket change. the US's real power is to shape
                        things in "convenient" directions ... like in

          I don't think I've ever seen an official upgrade proposal or
          a request for donation.  Do you have a pointer to either?
          \_ I could have sworn there was an official posting on
             this... I'll look around or post again.  Soda is gettin
             some dual P4 Xeon luvin (I have yet to figure out how to
             get them to burn a hole in the machine room wall, but I am
             definitely trying).  Ooodles of disk space and RAM come
             with it too.  Depending on how our finances look (ASUCk
             money, donations, etc), we are seriously considering
             offloading mail handling to another machine (and putting
             virus scanning into the mix to kill off some of that
             pesky virus-laden mail).  We are also looking to give some
             of the other servers face lifts (upgrades to somewhat
             modern technology like motherboards without ISA slots like
             a high-end PIII or something cheap).
             Everyone will be getting some quota love... maybe up to
             100-150MB (don't quote me on this, it isn't set in stone
             yet because we don't know how much disk we can buy or
             even what is considered reasonable).
             I'd love to give official specs on what we are planning,
             but those are changing because of finances. - jvarga
             \_ I think everyone else on the motd has asked already,
                but why dual Xeons?  It's a fine choice, apart from
                the fact that it runs warmer, slower, and is more
                expensive.
                \_ Why? It's a stable and proven platform supported
                  by a wide range of integrators (including Dell).  I
                  don't give a damn about  whether AMD is 15% faster or
                  slower as long as the reqs. above are satisfied.
                  Chances are you won't notice the speed difference as
                  CPU is just one of several components that impact it.
                  (not speaking for the CSUA though).
                  \_ As an organization living off the kindness of
                     others, I would certainly hope that the CSUA
                     is prudent with its spending.  Xeon is likely
                     not the best performance/cost trade-off cpu.
                     AMD64 is in IBM, HP, and Sun, I think, and is
                     just as stable a hardware platform.
                \_ We've all asked and have never been given an answer.
                  I think they pulled the choice out of their spleen
                  and have no satisfactory reason.
                  \_ Xeons are just cool.  They SOUND cool.  They sound
                     like ZENA, which of course gets all the comp nerds
                     all in a titty twister over the whole thing.
                     \_ Not to mention the NEAT-O Intel Inside sticker
                        you get with a Xeon box!
                      \_ It's Xena, foolio!
                  \_ We wanted to go with a dual CPU system.  This
                     leaves us with PIIIs, Athlons, Opterons, or Xeons.
                     PIIIs aren't worth buying, I've heard lots of
                     problems with the Athlon chipsets, FreeBSD has

11/30   Tom Ridge resigns. Finally!
        \_ what was so bad about him? - danh
                \_ He came up with the color coded terror threat level thing.
                   \_ yeah that was pretty much waving the "i'm a moron" flag.
        \_ I think he had a really thankless job, he had to build from the
           ground up an insanely huge agency.  he was one of the lesser
           evil cabinet members, maybe not evil at all. - danh
           \_ Not really from the group up, he just merged a bunch of
              existing agencies.
              \_ that is still an important task.
              \_ Actually, this may have been much harder than building it
                 up from scratch. Trying to merge large departments together
                 to work with one another can be exceedingly difficult.
                 \_ I was there.  The amount of politicking and special
                    group project compromises were astounding.  Our gov't
                    contracting co was affected, and we were on the periphery

        without storing all the data?
        \_ Are you the dude asking about 'variability' earlier?
        \_ Make 'bins', say 0-10ms, 11-20ms, 21-30ms, ... and store how many
           samples fall into each bin.  You can then find the median within
           <binsize> accuracy and it will use <max-latency>/<binsize> ints.
           Latencies greater than <max-latency> can be put in their own special
           bin but don't forget them when finding the median.

11/22   What's the logic behind 'consecutive life sentence'?  I can see being
        given multiple life sentences to be served at the same time, i.e. if
        one gets overturned you serve the others.  But making them
        'consecutive' makes no sense unless you believe in reincarnation and
        plan on incarcerating the next incarnation (An insect?).

           for 'good behavior,' and how in some cases you don't want people
