5/21   How hard/expensive is it to get an experimental VLSI chip fabbed,
       assuming it's already designed?  Are fabs on campus accessible?
       Purpose is to win RC5 crack contest, http://www.distributed.net
       \_ For 0.25micron the first Intel chip is only around $250,000. Cost
          goes down drastically with volume. You must be more stupid than
          I thought.
       \_ Check out MOSIS.  Depends on how many wafers you are making,
          the starting min is $10,000  (if ee143 is correct ..)
        \_ SSI's and MSI's cost almost nothing to make in bulk quantities
           and VLSI's shouldn't cost drastically more, although I don't
           think you'll find any luck finding someone to produce one VLSI
           chip for you just for the hell of it.
       \_ Bottom line is: any chip cheap enough to be worth it wont have
          an appreciably performance advantage over running tuned assembler
          on today's butt-fucking fast general-purpose CPUs.

05/22/98 "I Married A Horse!"
                 Our guests today say their clover relationships
                 disturb other people. Mark has been married for five
                 years... to his horse, Pixel. Mark claims that his
                 intimate relations with Pixel are legal where he
                 lives.  He was once married and has two adult
                 children. Mark wrote a book in 1994 about his
                 experiences with bestiality. We will also hear from a
                 woman who says her boyfriend is a dog and a man who
                 says he's not attracted to people, but to dogs
                 instead. Our guests are joined by psychologist Dr.
                 Robert Butterworth.

       classical music program, but he of course never got it...
       He was at the Mall of America watching Godzilla, oblivious to
       what was happening.  Thankfully he stopped by work on his way home."

          \_ she gets really neurotic about a guy and screws up in a
             ridiculous court scene.  For a change.
             \_ No, last night's episode was the one where she meets B1FF!!1!!,
                falls in love, and goes so far as to bring him home to her
                parents!  (I especially liked the scene that had all of

5/10    Psych grad student's looking for volunteers for a psych

        bribe of FREE PIZZA, drinks and snacks. The experiment entails
        watching video tapes and rating people's emotions. This coming
        Tuesday at 6 pm on campus. Email me if interested. -- reka
        \_ Are you CPHS-approved? - randomly curious
           \_ Yes. Are you interested? -- reka

                  \_ It means he won't harm you or fuck up your head.
                  \_ I believe it stands for the Campus Policy on Human
                     Subjects or something to the effect. It's kind of a
                     a review process to ensure that experiments are safe
                     and all that good stuff.
