xach's Nigeria 419 Scam beats the hell out of the original. Cheers for a giggle, xach!
I guess it's the online equivalent of inviting Jehova's Witnesses in and preaching to them rather than the other way round, just to see if you can twist their melons. My brother and I tried this with a couple of Mormons who stopped us in the street on friday night (or all times!)
Them: "Have you heard of the Church of Jesus Christ and the Latter Day Saints?"
Me: "Yes, I have actually, but it's not my bag. Want a toke on this? No, I thought not."
Bro: "Are you familiar with Sufism? Read any Idris Shah? Oooh, let me enlighten you..."
I have nothing against people who've "Got Faith", but I resent their assumption that everyone else is spiritually ignorant and is just waiting to be shown the light.
Oops, back to software...

Found an ICE in mainline GCC, but probably didn't need to include preprocessed unistd.h file in the report since test case doesn't use anything from it (it used to, but I reduced it). Or maybe it doesn't ICE without unistd.h? Should have been paying more attention when I reported it - this diary entry is to remind me to check tonight!

Another reminder: fix JavaScript on my sidebars page: left "//" out of baseurl variable. Doh! Still works though. Mozilla won't let you add sidebars from local URLs, neither file://fnordikus nor http://localhost/ting is allowed to be used as a sidebar. I wonder why not. When I'm at home I want to have my sidebars loaded from the localhost, not across my dialup connection. Workaround: use external hostname instead of localhost.

(That's enough rambling nonsense - Ed.)
