9/25    Searle is a crackpot.
        \_ No, the guy running for US president who thinks that Adolf
           Hitler should have conquered the world is a crackpot.
        \_ You are being far too kind
           \_ well, he's also an arrogant bastard
                \_ "Any person who is sane believes in DNA, the atomic
                    theory, heliocentricity of the solar system, and
                    evolution."  --Searle, in class.

                    \_ lies are best sandwiched in truths, you know
                       \_ Yeah, I never believed that heliocentricity
                          crap.  I've always believed evolution though.

9/23    When is (was) the L&S CS infosession?                   - brendal
        \_ Could you be a little bit more general?  Jeezz.  If this is a
           good deal, if it's for a CIO position in Santa Clara your getting
           \_ It's the motd.  It's either a sysadmin or coder job.
                   \_ besides, how many of the sorority girls on
                      campus could pass a Turing test?
        \_ I think it might be next week... I have seen rather
           more conflicting information than I'd like though. -brg
        \_ It will be on Tuesday October 5.  And I apologize for the
           conflicting info, but we had some unexpected snafus.  Flyers
           will be posted soon. -dans
        \_ why even bother?  Its all a big waste of time.
        \_ what percentage of all CS applicants get denied?
                \_ 100%
                   \_ Obviously not true.  - paolo (who used to be math)
                   \_ I think it's about 75% (deny rate). There are lots
                      of stats available... go to the infosession to find
                      out. If you're below 3.3, your chances aren't too
                      high, but you can even get in with slightly below a
                      2.9. Personally, that's why I applied under EECS :)
                      \_ yeah, you can skate by with a 2.0 while people
                         who are doing much better than you get fucked over.
                         \_ I got in with 2.1 combined with letters from
                            a number of profs.
                \_ If you come to the infosession you can find out.
                \_ No you wont.  Haven't you realized?  The infosession
                   is all about _discouraging_ people so they won't even
                   \_ That's a load of crap.  It's about showing people what
                      they're actually up against.  Please sign your posts in
                      the future so I know who's septic tank is leaking.
                      -dans, Interim L&S CS Infosession Czar
                        \_ "showing people what they're actually up against":
                           If *that* phrase isn't discouraging, I don't know
                           what is.  You sound a bit brainwashed.  -not the
                                same person from two posts up
                           \_ How is "showing people what they're actually up
                              against" discouraging?  If you think you're going
                              to get in with a C average, then you're probably
                              deluded.  If you think that you need a 3.5 to get
                              in, then, for the moment, you're deluded to (it
                              could get up to a 3.5, thus far it hasn't).
                              Frankly, I think that knowing what you'll likely
                              need is useful, and provides something of a
                              reality-check.  If you think that facing reality
                              is discouraging, then I feel sorry for you. -dans
                        \_ If you don't believe the L&S CS admissions committee
                        is acting in good faith in helping the CSUA to put on
                        this infosession by providing statistics and
                        counseling, then why bother even complaining about it?
                        For previous L&S infosessions we've had the EECS
                        Department Chair and most if not all of the L&S CS
                        admissions committee up in front of the crowd speaking
                        and answering questions.  It's not as if there's a
                        higher authority than that.  So this represents the
                        CSUA's best effort to get all the official information
                        about how best to approach getting in to the major out
                        to the people who need it.  And if you still don't
                        believe it, there are hundreds of schools you could go
                        to where they won't even begin to give you a hard time
                        about getting into CS. -brg
                        \_ There is a higher authority, I remember Katz saying
                           that the dean of Engineering was higher up - also I
                           remember them saying that the L&S dean needed to be
                           contacted if there were changes in the way that COE
                           doesn't get money from L&S Students in their program.
                           These guys never showed up to any L&S infosession.
                           Maybe they should? - paolo
                        \_ I stand corrected. Perhaps they should. (Perhaps
                           they just don't care...) -brg
                        \_ I don't believe that we've ever asked them.  Perhaps
                           this is a matter that we should consider addressing
                           \_ Right.  I'm sure they will come running just
                              an undergrad calls.  Take your own advice and
                              get a your own reality check.
                           \_ Oh deluded one:  Did I say that it was going to
                              happen like magic?  Did I say that they would
                              come running?  I don't see that in my post.  I
                              see the statement "Perhaps this is a matter that
                              we should consider addressing."  The only
                              illusion that I'm entertaining at the moment is
                              that I can convince you to pull the crack pipe
                              out of your ass through reasoned discourse.
                              Don't worry though, you're rapidly dispelling me
                              of this notion.  And, how exactly does one "get a
                              your own reality check"?  Sign your posts, and
                              learn to write a proper sentence you twink. -dans
                                \_ Do they no longer teach patience and good
                                   manners in CS anymore?  Apparently not.  Oh
                                   well.  Send me your resume.
                                   \_ "Whether 'tis nobler in the mind

                   \_ If you have to ask...  As for GPA, only weenies
                      put that on their resume.
                      \_ No, people put them on their resumes because they're
                         going to be asked sooner or later anyway.  The
                         weenies are the ones that put it down because
                         they have nothing else to show for themselves.
                         \_ Tom's right. Companies that ask are staffed by
                            weenies. You don't want to work for them. --dim

                            are lame companies, especially if you've already
                            got time at some other job.  A company you want
                            to work for will never ask for your GPA.  It's
                            a stupid question and says nothing about how good
                            or bad an employee you'll be.  In fact, I'd be
                            concerned about too high a gpa (if volunteered)
                            because that tells me the person is probably a
                            politcal kiss ass, not a good worker.  -agrees

                         that means in this context, will allow one to have
                         high GPA in majors like CS or Math.  I dare any

7/20    Is Scientoligy a cult or a mofia? I'm having trouble discerning
        exactly what they do.
        \_ Yes.
        \_ Scientology is an organization that fleeces naive and emotionally
        vulnerable people.  Their cosmology is very .. primitive, but they
        have succeeded in sucking hundreds of thousands of dollars from an
        average member.  They are officially a religion, so they do not pay
        any taxes.  -- ilyas

6/30    Anybody tried ordering out-of-print books from Amazon?  Are they
        any good at getting the books?  I order one 3 weeks ago and they still
        haven't gotten back to me.  Thanks.
        \_ July 1997, I figured, on a whime, to see if they can get
           that "Wormy" comic novel (basically, a collection of strips from
           that cartoon from Dragon Magazine. I submitted the request to
           Amazon, they found the ISBN, and requested a search. Then I
           forgot about it. Every now and then, I'd be amused to see that
                \-they seem to be a *lot* pricier --psb
                 \_ I'm never seen a out of print service that wasn't.
                    That is why I just like to prowl used bookstores
                    often and grab things when I can find them.
           I still had a request pending for it. Then, a month ago, I got
           an email saying that Amazon had tracked down the book, and asking
           if I were still interested. I sayd "Sure, why not", and, though
           it took another 2-3 weeks, I got it. Granted, this was a fairly
           mainstream graphic novel from 1987, so, if you want, say, a
           first edition George Bernard Shaw treatise on mathematics, you
           may want to wait a while, but, from this one limited example,
           I got results.
        \_ I waited 7 months and they finally got back to me, asking me to
           confirm if I wanted it. I confirmed. Three weeks later, they go
           "Ooops, we really didn't find it. We're still looking."
        \_ use http://www.alibris.com instead.   More pricy than finding it in a
           used bookstore but cheaper and MUCH faster than Amazon.
        \_ They found my book in 2 weeks but I found it on my own in 2 days.
           It's ok if you're not in a rush.  There's another out-of-print
           books place that does a much better job different than the url given
           above.  If I can find it I'll post it later today or tonight.

6/22    I've seen photos of the golden gate taken from a beach.  From that
        angle the bridge spans left to right dominating the photo.  Anybody
        know which beach might give you that view?  I've tried China Beach
        and the surrounding area.  The angle doesn't look right.  Thanks.
        \_ just a guess, but maybe stinson?
        \_ "spans from left to right" is meaningless.
            "The San Fran side is on the right" is meaningful.
           \_ Actually I couldn't tell if SF is on the right from the photos.
              It was taken from a beach and the bridge looked huge in the
              background.  It's beautiful.  Anybody know where it might be?
              \_ Angel Island, perhaps?  It has a beach facing the right
                 direction and a commanding view of the Golden Gate (so
                 commanding that the gov't chose to put gun emplacements
                 facing the bay mouth directly above it).  I think it's
                 probably the very best place from which to watch the sun
                 set over the bridge . . . -- kahogan
