6/5     I would like to remove a couple of links from a gold bracelet.
        Is there a place somewhere near the campus where this can be
        done, hopefully reasonably well and affordably?

           name escapes me, but they are pretty much across the street from
           the French Hotel cafe.  They sized some rings for me, and I was
           very impressed with their work.  That said, they're not
           particularly cheap. -dans

6/1     Where can I findinfo on good "static hashing?" (Not sure this is
        what it's called).  I have a set of N string keys to pointer
        values.  N is known and is always the same, so I think I should be
        able to have some optimal M buckets to hash to.  I would also
        like only 1 key per bucket.  I'm pretty sure I've seen an
        algorithm like this, but now I can't find it.
        \_ If N is known (and not ungodly gigantic), why bother "hashing" it?

4/24    What is the historical reason that 2x4 studs are really 1 1/2 by
        3 1/2? Ditto with 2x2, 4x4, etc.
        \_ They're 2x4 rough, before they're sanded.
        \_ Ever been to a lumber mill? Its not really the sort of equipment
           that can give you more than 1/2 in accuracy.
          \_ actually, they are standard 1 1/2 x 3 1/2
                and btw- 2x4 is within 1/2 inch accuracy
        \_ Old 2x4 studs (like in my old house) are indeed 2x4.
           \_ How old is your house dim?
              \_ 1928
        \_ I heard it was because they use 2" of raw lumber to make 1 1/2"
           of finished lumber.
           \_ Sounds kinda like how the 19" CRT is really only 18". ;)
        \_ It was done by the lumber mills to cut costs and improve their
           profit margins.  They used to produce dimensioned lumber in the
           actual dimensions, but started undersizing so they could make
           more product from each tree.  Since their customers were already
           used to similar differences in sizing between rough and surfaced
           boards, it was pretty easy to get their customers to accept it.
           As for the poster who thinks that the equipment in lumber mills
           can't provide 1/2" of accuracy, you're way off.  You'll notice
           more variation in the dimensions of wood from it swelling and
           contracting as its moisture content changes with the humidity
           of the surrounding air than from variations in the milling process

4/18    If a conference deadline gets pushed again and again (from 4/14 to
        4/18 to 4/26), does that mean it's a bullshit conference?
        \_ It's reasonably often that, for a reputable conference, this
           happens _once_ for any given deadline. I'd guess it's not
           impossible that there's a rare instance of it happenning twice.
           Any more than that is quite suspicious... but then, really, if
           you've never heard of the conference before and neither has
           anyone else you talk to who works in the same field, it's in
           all likelihood bogus. Academia is too small of a world to not
           notice such things. And if the "conference" makes its name by
           spamming every damn person in the field several times a month,
           the rest shouldn't even be a question. And no, "SCI" is not the'
           only name that these scammers go by. Do a little digging online,
           and you'll notice that there's upward of a dozen fronts that
           these assholes advertise under. -alexf
        \_ All other things being equal, this is a bad sign. But there are
           legitimate reasons to do it (publisher becomes more flexible,
           many people ask for extensions and the organizers feel it's fair
           to give one to everyone, etc.).
