2/22    Holy shit, Hollywood heist in real life:
        Weird that a single employee can be the point of failure.
        \_ you mean they recently watched Firewall w/Harrison Ford, right
           did anyone actually see that?
           \_ More like Bandits, with Bruce Willis, Billy Bob Thornton:

2/21    Any Olympians on soda or relatives of Olympians?
        I thought somebody had a sister who might be in the Olympics?
        \_ I know a couple of Olympians, but not for the White and Boring
        \_ My uncle Zeus...
        \_ Yes. -dans
           \_ I briefly saw a Jamie Silverstein in Ice Dancing.  Related?
              \_ Yes, she's my sister. -dans
                 \_ For those too lazy to look themselves:
                    \_ That's their free dance.  See also:
                       This features their compulsaries, though I find
                       compulsaries terribly boring (everyone skates the same
                       pattern). -dans
                       \_ Congratulations to her, and your entire family
                          for what she has done.  Why don't you visit
                          Torino?  Or are you there?
                          \_ Thanks, though I think most (all?) of that should
                             be directed at her.  My only hand in this was
                             spending two hours a day schlepping her to and
                             from the rink in heavy traffic for two years when

                             are in Torino, but my presently broke ass could
                             not afford airfare, one week's housing, and

2/20    A few years ago I switched from the Brita filtration pitcher
        system to the Pur filtration pitcher system because Pur filtered
        out certain microbial cycst and other things. I used the 3-stage
        Pur pitcher filter happily for a few years till now. Now I can't
        even find the 3-stage *pitcher* (not faucet) filter from Savon,
        Walgreens, Costco, and other stores that used to offer the filter.
        What's up?!??!
        \_ I am using the Pur desktop dispenser. Costco use to carry
           the filter, but now they only carry faucet mount filters. I
           guess supply and demand. Last time I ordered my filters
           from http://drugstore.com. Target also has it I believe.

2/17    I don't get it, why does the victim of the shooting say he's deeply
        sorry for all the hassle that the guy who shot him had to go through?
        \_ You think Cheney wouldn't go back to finish the job?
        \_ 'Cos Cheney said he didn't mean it, and Whittington knows Cheney
           just loves him and wouldn't hurt him, and sometimes Whittington
           knows he deserves it.
        \_ Ummm.. because they're friends and it was an accident?  Are you
           an idiot?
           \_ Usually when my friend injures me grievously I am mad at
              my friend for a while.  You must be the Pope.
              \_ You seem to have a lot of experiance with your friends
                 injuring you grievously.  Maybe your "friends" are trying
                 to send you a message.  Really, once or twice is an
                 accident, but...
        \_ Because he has no other option?
        \_ We can only hope that the next time Cheney shoots someone and puts
           him in intensive care, it will be less of a hassle for Cheney.
        \_ Let's just say there was some Brokeback action going on the ranch.
           \_ And Cheney mis-fired his gun on Whittington's face.  Oooh.
           \_ And as Whittington was caressing Cheney's gun, Cheney mis-fired
              it on Whittington's face.  Oooh ...

2/15    I'm using rsync -ravH to make two identical filesystems. When
        comparing the two resulting filesystems, I notice that some
        directory files (like /usr/doc/.) and /backup/usr/doc/. have
        different sizes: for example 8192 versus 4096 Any idea why
        this would be? I would like to confirm that my two rsync'd
        filesystems are identical.

1/1     What do you guys think about McMansions? Great? Bad? No opinion?
        \_ McMansions are usually bought by [single] working people who can
           barely afford them using interest only loans. Statistics show
           that most of the McMansions are quite empty because their owners
           are too busy with work and have no time to decorate them, let
           alone enjoy them. Since McMansions are usually built far away
           from metropolitan areas, their owners also tend to drive huge
           SUVs so that they can load up stuff they need, minimizing the
           time and frequency in which they must travel between their
           McMansions and civilization (eg. Costco).  Young McMansion owners
           are usually shocked at the $500-$1000 utility costs since
           McMansions are usually located in traditionally undesirable
           areas that are over 50-100 miles from big coastal cities, thus
           have huge temperature swings. McMansion owners love their homes
           because their homes allow them to feel like millionaires without
           actually having to be one.
        \_ I think they are fine if you have a big family, an ostentatious
           display of wealth otherwise.
           \_ Why do you think "McMansions" are an ostentatious display of
              wealth and regular (larger and more expensive) mansions are not?

12/16   Anyone know what the performance is like for the KDE kdesktop versus
        ultraVNC or tight? I find kdesktop kind of slow to connect to from
        home and was wondering if it was worth the effort to use another VNC
        server. Thanks
        \_ In my experience, running stuff X-remotely is about the same speed
           as VNC w.r.t. UI response.  However, TightVNC is considerably faster
           at sending large bitmaps (complex webpages, etc).  That said, I
           have no clue what kdesktop is.  --dbushong

12/13   I just watched Donnie Brasco and got to thinking after the
        scene where Donnie Brasco, still under cover, runs into
        some federal DA or attorney or something, and he beats the
        guy up to prevent the DA from recognizing him (and thus
        revealing his true identity). Does anyone know of what the
        policy is in real life, to prevent potentially serious
        predicaments like this from happening? Is no one allowed
        to acknowledge each other when not in the office?

12/13   I just wanted to say that kchang's villain tagger is cool and was
        already responsible for one of the more entertaining paranoid
        discussions on soda.
        \_ what the hell are you talking about?
           \_ kchang has a motd archiver.  He has a feature that attempts to
              track changes by user, it is semi-accurate.  He modified it to
              substitute villains for the user names.  Some people took it
              personally and hilarity ensued.

12/7    Looking for a general, nicely written consumer complaint letter
        to the corporate offices of companies so that I can report on
        employees who are really rude to customers. I'm tired of writing
        letters to Frys, Savon, and others.  What is a good complaint
        letter generater? Thanks.
        \_ http://www.pakin.org/complaint
           \- dont you think this would benefit by NOT being "general"
              but specific. also this needs to be what ... 4-5 sentences
              long at most? it doesnt appear from your inquiry you lack
              english fluency. just out of curiosity, what is you goal in
              writing these letters ... catharsis, or some kind of reply,
              punishment or compensation? Most of those would seem to be
              better served by a non-generic letter.
              \_ English is hard.
           \_ It's not a good complaint letter generator :(
