There is an article in Newsweek about increased rates of interracial
marriage among Asian men, and generally how Asian men are "movin' on
up", as it were. Mike was showing it to everyone on his laptop,
which is how I read it. There was this big section on stereotypes

like Mike.". Mike said I should write a Segfault story on the subject.
Me: "Yeah, I'm gonna look real good writing a story with a bunch of
Asian stereotypes in it."
I was also shocked to find out that Jackie Chan is not considered to be a sex symbol. C'mon.
He should be. Ladies, write him in on your ballot.

is Mike Popovic of Be Dope. Am I going to have to go back off a first-name
basis with Mike Popovic?

I had a really good Nethack wizard, but a rock troll kept clobbering
me. I'd kill the troll, start to eat it, and the troll would come back to life
and clobber me some more. So I'd kill it again etc. It got pretty ridiculous. I've got another
wizard I'm working on now that's pretty good, though.

of Canada" T-shirt.

Celeste wrote me an
explanation as to why Jackie Chan is not a sex symbol. Apparantly
the sociologist in the Newsweek article was right about him.
Who'da thunk it?

I squashed various bugs in the Daily Pokey lister which was limiting
you to viewing Pokeys for the first year (1999). Not that it matters,
since there are no Daily Pokeys for 2000 to speak of due to the cronjob

My URSA enrollment appointment (My last one! I hope.) starts on the
28th. Don't let me forget!
