#1701Couldn't we jury-rig the cat to act as an audio switch, and have it yell
at people to save their core images before logging them out? I'm sure
the cattle prod would be effective in this regard. In any case, a traverse
mounted iguana, while more perverted, gives better traction, not to mention
being easier to stake.
#1702Counting in binary is just like counting in decimal -- if you are all thumbs.
-- Glaser and Way
#1703Counting in octal is just like counting in decimal--if you don't use your thumbs.
-- Tom Lehrer
#1704[Crash programs] fail because they are based on the theory that, with nine
women pregnant, you can get a baby a month.
-- Wernher von Braun
#1705Crazee Edeee, his prices are INSANE!!!
#1706Creating computer software is always a demanding and painstaking
process -- an exercise in logic, clear expression, and almost fanatical
attention to detail. It requires intelligence, dedication, and an
enormous amount of hard work. But, a certain amount of unpredictable
and often unrepeatable inspiration is what usually makes the difference
between adequacy and excellence.
#1708VMS-F-PDGERS, pudding between the ears
#1709Dear Emily, what about test messages?
-- Concerned

Dear Concerned:
It is important, when testing, to test the entire net. Never test
merely a subnet distribution when the whole net can be done. Also put "please
ignore" on your test messages, since we all know that everybody always skips
a message with a line like that. Don't use a subject like "My sex is female
but I demand to be addressed as male." because such articles are read in depth
by all USEnauts.

#1710Dear Emily:
How can I choose what groups to post in?
-- Confused

Dear Confused:
Pick as many as you can, so that you get the widest audience. After
all, the net exists to give you an audience. Ignore those who suggest you
should only use groups where you think the article is highly appropriate.
Pick all groups where anybody might even be slightly interested.
Always make sure followups go to all the groups. In the rare event
that you post a followup which contains something original, make sure you
expand the list of groups. Never include a "Followup-to:" line in the
header, since some people might miss part of the valuable discussion in
the fringe groups.
