* ext3 rules: tune2fs -i -0 -c 0 -j /dev/hdan; emacs /etc/fstab; reboot. done.

* i can do 55 situps now in 60 seconds.

* i mailed a girl in my german class about stuff i'd missed the other day when i had to skip. we talk before class everyday (both have hour breaks and get there early) so i figured emailing her was okay. but today she didn't talk to me and seemed intently distant ... i think i creeped her out. kinda sad. but i realize now i found her email address from the UW LDAP server (which allows complicated querying), whereas the web page LDAP interface allows only search by dept, or last name, or email. i only knew her first name. yeah, i'm the stalker i guess. heh.

directory.washington.edu, port 389 (standard LDAP port)

just get an LDAP client.

i use gq:


but that's gtk, not windows.

good windows one: Outlook Express. add a directory server. then "Find People" and choose that directory.

That is a lot of situps. Back when I was in shape(a shape besides round that is) I could do 75 pushups in a minute.

that's a shitload of pushups. i haven't tried to go past 20 yet. i don't do them too often.... not as rewarding, somehow.

I think its sad that what seems logical to smarter people seems like stalking to other people.
IMO if you put information somewhere its technically public.

According to Army Standards, if you can do more then 52 sit ups in a two minutes time frame, you pass that portion of thier physical fitness test.

Of course, you also hafta do 42 push-ups in an additional two minutes, and then run two miles in less then run two miles in a little less then sixteen minutes. I figure you're at least two-thirds of the way there.

You could always just join the Army, and work on computers for them. Though when I talked to a recruiter, the closest to computers they ever found was a switchboard operator. The commericals claim there's computer jobs though. Maybe times have changed.
