8/9     DDT: A Case Study in Scientific Fraud
        \_ The political tone of this is obvious, so I went to see who these
           guys represent -- apparently private doctors.  Amusing.  The wages
           of socialism in a given professional sphere is radicalization of

              \- At a global level the DDT story is really a sad one, and not
                 just of academic interest. It goes from that hack Rachel
                 Carson and US Govt to the UN who starts pressuring developing
                 countries with endemic malaria problems not to use it. What
                 is appropriate for large scale argicultural use and "tactical"
                 application in domiciles is wildly different.

8/8     The way liberals welcome freedom of speech, even for those who
        are against freedom of speech, reminds me of this childhood story
        where a close knit herbivore community finally opens up its
        gate to everyone, only to have the community destroyed by other
        \_ which leads you to conclude ...?
           You know, you could easily replace "freedom of speech" with
           press, or religion, or dissent.

           argumentation (i.e. links and arguments
           that you post have _some_ intrinsic value
           as you seem to have put some thought into
           them instead of just spewing shit, even
           if it's usually wrongthink--for example,
           I find your generalizations about
           "liberals" to be disappointing and below
           what I would expect from you.)
           By my definition, "cretinous thugs" are
           rampant on the motd and wall, alongside

              I could do without your condescending attempts to 'improve me.'
              As for your actual claim, I don't actually generalize about
              liberals as a whole except in jest.  You don't seem to understand
              me, or my sense of humor, or something like that.  Regarding

                       clearly stating that censoring someone, no matter how
                       obnoxious, is teh suck.  I really fail to see the

8/4     Dear Goons, please point me to whatever thread on SA has any

                   only a forum (not SA).
                2) Somehow this gets on site in question, where his bf2
                   clan find them.
                3) He threatens admins on SA and wdma to remove it or else;
                3) He threatens admins on SA and ..... to remove it or else;
                   In typical SA fashion, he is mocked relentlessly.
                4) Guy throws hissy fit and posts big exposes about piracy
                   on the internet, implicating various people connected to
                   the two sites, but not the original forum he posted on.
                   He somehow decides that posting said expose in hundreds
                   of IMDB forums is the correct method to distribute this

8/1     I take back (almost) everything I ever said bad about NYC.  The
        people are generally nice and well-dressed, the food is really good,
        you can always get cabs, and I haven't encountered anyone who tried
        to bite me or who eats babies yet.  Three thumbs up, it's expensive
        but a really cool place.  -John
        \_ Obviously, you never lived there for a long time. How long were
           you there? NYC, great to visit, not so great to live.
           \- in my experience something really changed there post-Guilliani
              \_ good or bad?
                 \_ It depends on your politics.
           \_ Good lord no, I thought that was pretty clear and obvious.  My
              friends here are paying $4200/mo. for a 2rm. apartment, along
              with people who pay others to walk their dogs and can't find
              parking, EVAR.  I was just commenting on how it was a nice place
              to visit.  -John

7/30    For a regular expression like (?:(FOO)|(BAR)|(BAZ))(GARPLY) where
        exactly one of expressions FOO, BAR, or BAZ will match, is there
        a way to have only one backreference returned for the one that
        matches? That is, I'd like $1 to be for that match, and $2 to be the
        match for GARPLY. This is using preg_split (pcre on PHP). Thanks.

           \_ Well, actually, I guess I didn't explain this quite right.
              Say I have something like (?:FOO|BAR|BAZ)(GARPLY),
              and FOO, BAR, and BAZ each have two sets of capturing
              parens themselves. I want those matches to be $1 and $2,
              and GARPLY to be $3.
              \_ I don't believe you can do that... but since you're trying
                 to do this with preg_split, how do you plan on capturing
                 any matches at all?  --dbushong

        yard and want to a small grass that doesn't grow fast (I hate mowing)
        my wife wants blades that aren't too thick and look good.  Advice?
        and what does "very little thatch" mean ?
        \_ If you live in Irvine, make sure you go through the home-owner's
           association approval process. Submit an application and make sure
           the type of grass match with one of the 2 they approve. Also
           if you're painting, you have about 4 colors to choose from,
           depending on the colors of your neighbors and their color
           matching schemes. And if you're not careful you'll get penalized
           $200 the first month for breaking any of their aesthetic rules.

              \_ Uh, not that I disagree it's a rip-off, but no, the font
                 is not the same.  Check the Os and Rs.  The font Nike used
                 is narrower overall than the Minor Threat one.
                 \_ Hmmm... I admit I'm not measuring it, but the Rs look
                    pretty much the same to me.  Nike's T is a little
                    closer to the H, and the O is slightly narrower, but I
                    just attributed that to the fact that "AJ" is wider
                    than "IN".  Certainly most things are the same, the

                       'R' consists of a semicircle and a triangle.
                       Anyway, the fonts are hardly "exact".

6/21:  Is there a way to tell diff to diff the two lines it finds
       different rather than just listing the  two lines  and
       leaving it to me to figure out how they are different
       (these are really long (>>80 chars) lines)

6/15    Do any sodans use CentOS? What do you think about it? We have a
        whole bunch of RHEL WS desktops that I am thinking of switching

        too bad).

6/13   Computerized voting ballots?
        dans, didnt you do a research paper on this?
        Too bad your not sited. -mrauser
        \_ I did write a paper on this (more like a treatise at its final
           length), but never managed to publish due to academic politics.
           Basically, one of the researchers I cited extensively has a fairly
           draconian policy on his/her website regarding the use/reference of
           his/her work.  I inquired with the individual and initially
           received a very positive response, but s/he then dropped off of the
           face of the earth.  I suspect the policy is aimed toward
           journalists, not academics, but since I'm not very familiar with
           the academic publishing world, I didn't want to ruffle any
           feathers.  Perhaps more importantly, my paper was fairly specific
           to web based voting systems, with an emphasis on Berkeley's
           implementation at the time.  I also get the sense that this was a
           hot issue in 2004, and thus, many more well known and reputed
           researchers were publishing on the topic at the time so being some
           random undergrad (even from Berkeley) probably didn't help much.
           Not publishing was unfortunate.  That said, I really don't regret
           it.  I had fun writing the paper, and received some credits I
           needed toward graduation. -dans
